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!

Secret Wars 2099 #1 (Of 5)
Secret Wars Journal #1 (Of 5)
Uncanny Avengers Ultron Forever #1
Where Monsters Dwell #1 (Of 5)

Perfect Pulls: Last week, the Secret Wars experience I expected was to pick up Planet Hulk, having not been a fan of the arc of the same name, find that I didn’t like that either and know that I could safely skip the tie-ins based on stories I didn’t like. However, I walked away from Planet Hulk being totally blown away and realizing that my wallet was screwed. This week, it’s the opposite; I go in hoping books based on stories I adore, like Old Man Logan and Infinity Gauntlet, are just as awesome as I hope they are. Combine that with new Inhumans, the final Iron Fist, and even more Secret Wars tie-ins and I am all about the Marvel shelf this week.

Perfect Pulls: This is the final week of Convergence, but that’s not the only reason to celebrate! Sure, the end to one of the most disappointing and totally-skippable events in recent memory is a reason for joy, but that’s not all. The latest issue of the too-good-to-be-true Suiciders drops today, along with new installments of He-Man the Eternity War and Injustice, and even another Sandman Overture if you’re into that sort of thing. Most importantly… I can’t wait for all the real books next week!

Perfect Pulls: Don’t you hate when you find out their are skeletons in the ol’ family closet? Don’t you hate it even more when you find out it’s actually demons, because your family happens to be really closely tied to a devil-worshiping cult? That’s just the worst… and exactly the premise behind one of Image’s latet, Sons of the Devil. Also this week, don’t miss out on new issues of Wayward, Invincible, the glorious Deadly Class and a bunch more!

Perfect Pulls: I really don’t know how I feel about Dark Horse’s Fight Club 2. On the one hand, it’s something I really, really never felt needed a sequel. On the other, this isn’t just some slap-dash money grab; it’s legitimately written by Chuck Palahniuk, which means it can’t simply be ignored. Either way, I have no question I’m going to buy it… I just hope it gives me a reason to buy #2. Also this week, there’s the sure-to-be-stunning conclusion to Divinity from Valiant, the latest installment of the borderline-ridiculous Order of the Forge, and the second issue of the startlingly good King Prince Valiant to look forward to as well.

Those are the highlights for Wednesday, May 27th. Anything you simply can’t live without, or simply can’t imagine reading? Share it in the comments!
