Tyler’s Comic Corner – 12/31/14 Edition

Posted on December 31, 2014 at 7:12 am by Tyler Waterman

Welcome to Tyler’s Comic Corner, where I highlight the majority of this week’s new comic releases. My highlights include mainstream and indie titles, ensuring your pull list won’t be deprived of one of this week’s gems. My apologies if your favorite isn’t listed, but good news; you clearly already knew it was coming!

shield1covMarvel Releases

All-New Miracleman Annual #1
S.H.I.E.L.D. #1

Perfect Pulls: It’s an exceptionally light release week due to the holiday (despite Christmas Eve seeing a massive list from most publishers), but Marvel hasn’t left you completely high and dry! If a light week has you looking for something new, give All-New Miracleman Annual #1 a try. Or, if you’re not feeling too outside-the-box, SHIELD #1 promises to be a sweet new book, even if you’re not a fan of the show. It also has about 1,000 variant covers… buy them all, and you’ll feel like it’s a normal week!




be39covDC Releases

Batman Eternal #39
Earth 2 World’s End #13
New 52 Futures End #35

Perfect Pulls: Nothing but the weekly releases today from DC, but fortunately those books are pretty darn good! Watch the future and Earth 2 both continue to unravel in Earth 2 World’s End #13 and New 52 Futures End #35, and of course, see Gotham continue to fall apart around Bruce in Batman Eternal #39!





eow16covImage Release

East Of West #16

Perfect Pulls: Only one new book from Image today, but when it’s the latest issue of the outstanding East of West, can you really complain?







aas1covIndie Releases

Avatar Press:

IDW Publishing:
Star Trek Planet Of The Apes #1 (Of 5)

Valiant Entertainment:
X-O Manowar #31

Perfect Pulls: Don’t let all those “no new releases this week” keep you from paying attention to your local comic shop’s indie sections today; there’s still a few gems to be had! Fans of space, apes, crossovers, or any combination of the three should check out Star Trek Planet of the Apes #1 today from IDW. BOOM! has Abigail and the Snowman #1 out today, featuring a girl and her friend (who happens to be a Yeti that escaped from the government) that promises to channel all your love for Calvin and Hobbes. It’s also from Roger Landridge, whose Thor The Mighty Avenger is one of the best and underrated Thor series ever made, so check this out! Pair those two books with the latest issue of the always-excellent X-O Manowar from Valiant and the indie shelf doesn’t seem that bare after all!

Those are the highlights for Wednesday, December 31st. Anything you simply can’t live without, or simply can’t imagine reading? Share it in the comments!
