Tyler’s Comic Corner – 5/20/15 Edition

Posted on May 20, 2015 at 10:25 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!

 

swb1covMarvel Releases

A-Force #1
Avengers World #21
Daredevil #15.1
Deadpool’s Secret Secret Wars #1
Guardians of the Galaxy #27
Loki Agent of Asgard #14
Master of Kung Fu #1 (of 4)
Moon Knight #15
Planet Hulk #1
Powers #3
Secret Wars Battleworld #1
Spider-Verse #1
Star Wars #5
Ultimate End #1
Uncanny X-Men #34
Wolverines #19

Perfect Pulls: There isn’t an issue of Secret Wars today, but don’t let that get you down… because the tie-ins have begun! Secret Wars has an unprecedented number of tie-ins, and it seems safe to assume that you can pick and choose as you go. In other words, you didn’t like the Planet Hulk event? You probably shouldn’t buy the book that’s set in that section of Battleworld. However, these are also a great opportunity to get a glimpse of worlds and storylines you may not be familiar with, so Secret Wars is a great chance to learn as much about the Marvel U that you can before it all changes forever… again!

Valhalla Mad #1
Wytches #6

Perfect Pulls: The new kid on the Image block this week is Valhalla Mad, which is essentially Joe Casey and Paul Maybury envisioning their version of the Warriors Three embarking on a drunken vacation on Earth. I can get behind this idea! Also this week, don’t miss out on new issues of hits like Spawn, Shutter, Secret Identities and Trees, as well as an issue of Wytches that had Scott Snyder asking people who saw early releases not to spoil the ending… which means you know you want to see it before someone ruins it for you!

Perfect Pulls: There’s a bunch of books to look forward to on the indies shelf today. Mega Man fans won’t want to miss Mega Man #49, as the series heads into the Worlds Unite event with a storyline that promises to have major ramifications on the past, present and future of Mega Man. Valiant has a nice one-two punch today, with new issues of the outstanding Bloodshot Reborn and Ninjak ongoing series. Jem and the Holograms fans can wash the taste of that terrible Jem movie trailer away with a new issue of the significantly better comic series from IDW, and Oni’s outstanding Letter 44 has a new issue out today as well. And did I mention Archie vs Predator #2 is out today? Because if not, I’m always happy to type Archie vs Predator as many times as I possibly can!

Those are the highlights for Wednesday, May 20th. Anything you simply can’t live without, or simply can’t imagine reading? Share it in the comments!
