Posted on December 3, 2014 at 7:52 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!

Perfect Pulls: On the last Comic Corner podcast, my cohost and I were both loudly lamenting the fact that it had been months since we’d seen a new issue of Iron Fist The Living Weapon, easily one of our favorite comics coming out of Marvel right now. It looks like our complaining worked, because guess what’s on shelves today? (Oh yeah, we’re totally taking the credit for this one.) This week also sees the premier of Angela’s first solo title in the Marvel U, bringing Thor’s sister back into the spotlight after being strangely unheard from since Original Sin. Finally, the always-excellent Legendary Star-Lord also has a new issue, and Thanos vs. Hulk reunites Jim Starlin and the Mad Titan yet again, which is never a bad thing.

Perfect Pulls: Today marks the return of Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato to Detective Comics, and that’s reason enough to be excited, but it isn’t the reason I can’t wait to dive in. This issue also marks the return of one of my favorite obscure Batman characters, with the New 52 premier of Anarky. If you aren’t familiar, Anarky is a teenaged sometimes-villain-sometimes-vigilante with an impractical cloak and an excellent hat, whose appearances in the past always stuck with me as a fan. I will be writing a stern letter if that hat doesn’t make it into the New 52! We also have the latest issue of Grayson this week, a book that keeps raising the bar with every issue, as well as the start of the third act of Godhead in Green Lantern #37, which pairs Hal with Black Hand in an exceptionally unlikely team-up. All of this, plus Gail Simone kicking off a new Secret Six book… it’s a good day for DC fans!

Perfect Pulls: Astoundingly, there isn’t a new Image book to take your money today, for which all of our wallets are thankful. However, that doesn’t mean Image isn’t getting your cash, as we’ll all undoubtedly be grabbing the latest issues of outstanding titles like Low, Tech Jacket, Five Ghosts and Birthright. Also, Image stalwart Spawn is now only a month away from its huge 250th issue, so be sure to grab the penultimate issue to that today!

Perfect Pulls: Words can not express how excited I am for BOOM!’s Escape from New York series, which starts today! Both of the Escape from… movies are some of my absolute favorite films, and Snake Plissken has to be one of the greatest badasses of all time. This is a franchise that demands a comic; I can’t believe it’s taken this long, and I can’t wait to get my hands on it today! Dynamite also has several new titles on shelves, including new titles in both their Army of Darkness and Battlestar Galactica lines, as well as a brand new Shaft comic! Combine those with the return of Rai and a new Quantum and Woody one-shot from Valiant and today’s indie lineup is looking exceptional!

Those are the highlights for Wednesday, December 3rd. Anything you simply can’t live without, or simply can’t imagine reading? Share it in the comments!
