Perfect Pulls: I know it’s hard to think about anything other than the Civil War premier this weekend, but there are comics out from Marvel as well! There’s some damn good ones, too, particularly that new Punisher ongoing I can’t wait to begin. I’m also thrilled to see the spirit of the 90’s is alive and well in the latest iteration of the Thunderbolts… seriously, look at that cover! It’s not a comic, it’s a time machine! Finally, may the Fourth be with you this Star Wars day with a new issue of Poe’s solo book!

Discipline #3

Violent #4
Walking Dead #154

Wolf #7

Perfect Pulls: Two new books out from Image today, and I think I’ll be grabbing both. Well, I know I’m grabbing Renato Jones. After Kaare Andrews’ created my favorite Iron Fist run ever, I’ll pretty much follow him anywhere. 3 Floyds Alpha King involves home-brewers making a beer so good it attract interdimensional bad guys. I may wait on reviews, but that certainly sounds like it could be pretty great.

Perfect Pulls: Dynamite doubles up on their obscure team-ups today, with new issues of Gold Key Alliance (judge is still out on this) and the new King’s Quest #1. Combining Flash Gordon, Prince Valiant and two Phantoms is enough to at least get me in the door for issue one. Valiant’s next mega-event kicks off today as well, so don’t miss a chance to grab a copy of 4001 AD #1, I have no doubt it will sell out fast.

Those are the highlights for Wednesday, May 4th. Anything you simply can’t live without, or simply can’t imagine reading? Share it in the comments!
