Tyler’s Comic Corner – 5/6/15 Edition

Posted on May 6, 2015 at 7:00 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!

 

detailMarvel Releases

All-New Captain America Special #1
Amazing Spider-Man #18
Ant-Man #5
Avengers Vs #1
Guardians Team-Up #5
Hulk #16
Inhuman Annual #1
Kanan The Last Padawan #2
Operation S.I.N. #5 (Of 5)
Punisher #18
Return Of The Living Deadpool #4 (Of 4)
Rocket Raccoon #11
Secret Wars #1 (Of 8)
Spider-Gwen #4
Spider-Woman #7
Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #5
Wolverines #17

Perfect Pulls: Let the games begin! After years of buildup in the pages of several Avengers titles, the event to end all events is finally on shelves. It’s the Ultimate universe versus the Marvel universe we all know and love, and only one can survive. I’ve been down on most of the recent Marvel events, but I have to admit I’m extremely excited for this… heroes versus heroes is always a good time! This week also sees new issues of hits like Ant-Man, Punisher, Rocket Raccoon and Spider-Gwen… get ’em while their world still exists!

 

CONV-Cv5-ds-c0630DC Releases

Convergence #5 (Of 8)
Convergence Batgirl #2 (Of 2)
Convergence Batman And Robin #2 (Of 2)
Convergence Harley Quinn #2 (Of 2)
Convergence Justice League #2 (Of 2)
Convergence Nightwing Oracle #2 (Of 2)
Convergence Speed Force #2 (Of 2)
Convergence Superman #2 (Of 2)
Convergence The Atom #2 (Of 2)
Convergence The Question #2 (Of 2)
Convergence Titans #2 (Of 2)
Flash Season Zero #8
Hinterkind #18
Names #9 (Of 9)
Scooby-Doo Team Up #10
Wolf Moon #6 (Of 6)
Wonder Woman ’77 Special #1

Perfect Pulls: I usually try and keep the Comic Corner positive, but I’m sorry… Convergence sucks. The tie-ins are lame at best, and the main book has become so convoluted that’s it’s just as impossible to recommend as it is to read. I saw comic shops tweeting that last week’s Batman #40 outsold every Convergence title combined… and there’s a reason for that. Count me as one of the many folks who are skipping the DC shelf entirely until the real comics come back.

 

Descender_03-1Image Releases

Artifacts Lost Tales #1
Descender #3
Elephantmen #64
Jupiter’s Circle #2
Minimum Wage So Many Bad Decisions #1 (Of 6)
Nailbiter #12
No Mercy #2
Roche Limit Clandestiny #1
Rocket Girl #6
Savage Dragon #203
Thief Of Thieves #28
Wicked + The Divine #10
Zero #16

Perfect Pulls: Are you reading Descender? If you’re not, you need to get on that ASAP. There aren’t many comics that leave you astoundingly connected to the characters after only two issues, but this is one of them. I can’t wait to read this latest issue, and if you’ve been sleeping on it, now’s the time to wake up! Some more of my favorites hit today as well, including Jupiter’s Circle, Rocket Girl, WicDiv and Zero… it’s a good Image day today!

Perfect Pulls: I haven’t seen much about BOOM!’s Arcadia until I was putting this week’s Comic Corner together, but when I saw it solicited as a combo of Game of Thrones and The Matrix, I’ll admit I was intrigued! BOOM! rarely lets me down, so this one deserves a glance or two at the shop today. Valiant also has some cool offerings, in both the most random team-up in Dead Drop, as well as the Valiant Universe Handbook which is great for anyone intrigued by Valiant but looking to dive into the current stuff right away. Also, don’t miss the latest issue of Afterlife with Archie, a book I still can’t believe exists!

Those are the highlights for Wednesday, May 6th. Anything you simply can’t live without, or simply can’t imagine reading? Share it in the comments!
