Perfect Pulls: As Marvel’s movie-verse continues to grow, it’s always fascinating to see how they blend their cinema worlds with the comics that birthed them. While not likely to be as elaborate as inventing an unknown son of Nick Fury, it looks like today’s issue of Guardians of the Galaxy will explain where Starlord suddenly acquires the exact same outfit as his movie counterpart. Is this a bit transparent marketing? Sure. But is that outfit so badass that I don’t even care? Yup! Speaking of a guy with lots of outfits, there’s lots of Spidey love today, with both the latest issue of his monthly book, as well as another compilation of Spider-stories in Spider-Man Spectacular #1. We also start to find out just what those original sins are in Original Sin #3.1, which explains what Hulk saw that makes him hate Tony Stark even more than he already did. (Not an easy task.) There’s a lot to love from Marvel today!

Perfect Pulls: The beginning of a crazy new era begins in the pages of Superman today. For the first time ever, John Romita Jr. brings his legendary style to DC Comics, and what better book for him to be on than the Man of Steel’s himself? Pair JRJR with Geoff Johns’ writing and you know this book is going to be good. Lately the Superman titles have been enjoying a bit of a renaissance period, but this is definitely the most exciting part of all, and I can’t wait to finally read it. This week is also loaded with more great books, whether it be the dark and brutal Sinestro, the so-far-fascinating look at New 52 origins in Secret Origins, or the follow-up to the loaded cliffhanger from the last issue in Justice League #31. Oh, and did I mention we get the penultimate chapter of Zero Year today in Batman #32? Basically, DC’s lineup is firing on all cylinders today, so get to the shop early!

Perfect Pulls: I haven’t mentioned it here before, but JMS’ Dream Police is rapidly becoming one of my favorite Image books. I’m a sucker for great world-building; if you take the time to flesh out all the details of your story, you can count on me taking the time to enjoy all of them. This book does exactly that for the Dreamscape, where we go when we dream, and it’s downright fascinating. JMS has made a world that seems equally fantastic and business-as-usual at the same time, and I’m always really excited to get another peek at it. Combine that with a great, gritty cop drama with plenty of question marks and this book is a must-read. Also this week are the latest issues of Image hits COWL, Saga, Trees, Chew, Fuse, and several other one-word titles that you don’t want to miss. Just like DC, Image’s lineup today is absolutely loaded.

Perfect Pulls: It’s crazy how much I’ve been looking forward to the Dawn of X crossover event in the pages of Archie’s Mega Man comic. Better yet, last month’s Part 1 was just as awesome as I wanted it to be, which means it can only keep getting better. If you’ve ever been a fan of the Blue Bomber, whether the X version or the original, you’re doing yourself a disservice if you aren’t reading this book! Speaking of indie movements that I love, the Gold Key revolution rolls on over at Dynamite, with new issues of both the outstanding new Turok series as well as the latest Solar Man of the Atom, which took a surprising twist last issue that I can’t wait to see play out. Finally, over at IDW they’re making Cartoon Network fans dreams come true with Cartoon Network Super Secret Crisis War. A crossover event between Samurai Jack, the Powerpuff Girls, Dexter and more? Yes please!

Those are the highlights for Wednesday, June 25th. Anything you simply can’t live without, or simply can’t imagine reading? Share it in the comments!
