Perfect Pulls: Remember last week, when Marvel’s website tricked us all into thinking All-New Ghost Rider was coming out? Well, unless we’ve been bamboozled again, this week it really does ride into stores, although now I’m afraid I’m going to give it a hard time like it stood me up for the big dance. If you’re the type that wishes your Iron Man suits came with more discipline, Iron Patriot debuts this week, putting Rhodey in the spotlight for the first time in a long time. Perhaps most exciting, however, is the penultimate chapter of Goblin Nation in the pages of Superior Spider-Man #30. This whole event is wrapping up the Superior-izing of the Spider-brand with an epic bang, and this issue promises a no-turning-back moment of the highest order, so don’t miss it.

Perfect Pulls: The best part about this week from DC? A double dose of He-Man! Along with the latest issue of the main MotU comic (that picks up from the huge revelation in issue #10), we also get the conclusion to the surprisingly awesome DC Universe vs. Masters of the Universe. Sure, it falls victim to some of the unavoidable pitfalls of a multi-brand crossover, but overall the story has been action-packed and filled with fanservice, without ever feeling like it’s pandering. The last two major Fear Itself tie-ins wrap up this week as well, though Arkham War was definitely the best of the three. And don’t forget to follow the latest details following Red Lantern Supergirl in, fittingly, Red Lanterns.

Umbral #5
Walking Dead #124

Perfect Pulls: I just can’t say enough good things about Remender’s Deadly Class. This book somehow follows and breaks the “school for evil kids” trope all at the same time, and it’s a blast to watch happen. Cool characters, a great setting, and fantastic dialog makes this one of the best books coming out of Image’s loaded lineup. Joining that lineup today is Real Heroes, which tasks famous actors who play the world’s best super team with actually saving the world. Basically, imagine if the cast of The Avengers was asked to really save New York from Loki. I suspect it wouldn’t go as well, and that’s what we’ll see here. Also, if you’re a fantasy fan and you aren’t reading Umbral, remedy that immediately. You don’t even know what you’re missing.

Perfect Pulls: IDW has all sorts of reasons to celebrate today. On one hand, you have the massive landmark that is G.I. Joe #200, a feat particularly outstanding in an era of reboots and re-numberings. This issue finds the Joes returning to their original home base, but the homecoming likely won’t be as uneventful as they hoped. On the other hand, you have the conclusion to the long-running Dark Cybertron storyline in Dark Cybertron: Finale. This issue promises that every single action made by a robot in disguise will come to a head here, and spell the fate of the whole universe. If you’re looking for new instead of milestones, Dark Horse has you covered with Blackout, the tale of a suit that can travel through a shadow dimension to give full access to our own, but it’s in the hands of someone who doesn’t understand it and is being pursued by those who want it.

Those are the highlights for Wednesday, March 26th. Anything you simply can’t live without, or simply can’t imagine reading? Share it in the comments!
