Perfect Pulls: Ohhhhh Secret Wars you beautiful comic, you! The first issue of the event-to-end-all-events dropped last week, and every single panel was nothing short of stunning. Deaths! Explosions! Deaths by explosions! Phoenix Cyclops! Everything I love is all between these covers! And, because Marvel clearly loves us, here comes the second issue only one week later! Sure, there are other awesome Marvel books out this week, like Magneto, Darth Vader, Spider-Man 2099 and Thor, but seriously… I need more Secret Wars right now!

Birthright #7
Black Science #14

Perfect PullsInjection is a funny thing to me. On the one hand, I can’t help but mildly roll my eyes when I see this book being billed as “from the creators of the first six issues of the current Moon Knight series.” Six issues isn’t exactly something that deserves top billing… or at least, they normally aren’t, except the Ellis/Shalvey issues of Moon Knight were indeed basically perfect comics. So is this book marketed poorly? Kind of. Do I still suspect it will be extraordinary? I sure do. Also this week, there are new issues of books like Copperhead, Black Science, Saga, Birthright, and even a Five Ghosts special, so even if Injection doesn’t blow me away, I can rest assured I won’t be sad with my Image stack today.

Perfect Pulls: When you see every creator you follow on social media taking the time to mention a creator-owned book, you can typically assume it’ll be worth investigating. Cullen Bunn and Tyler Crook’s Harrow County is one of those titles. If everyone who’s anyone feels the need to get the word out about a title you may have otherwise missed, it probably means it’s worth the price of admission! Also this week, Valiant has a killer lineup of some of their finest, the latest Escape from New York fills me with glee, and the Worlds Unite mega-event comes one step closer in the latest Sonic the Hedgehog.

Those are the highlights for Wednesday, May 13th. Anything you simply can’t live without, or simply can’t imagine reading? Share it in the comments!
