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!

Perfect Pulls: I deliberately waited until Wednesday morning to write this Comic Corner, solely so I could read Captain America: Steve Rogers #2 beforehand. I wanted to be able to confirm or deny what I suspected, that this issue would make the ragetweeters look even sillier than they already did… and I was right. There’s a perfect explanation, as all of us said there would be, for why Cap is suddenly hailing Hydra. What’s more, there’s the beginnings of an instant Cap classic brewing here; I legit feel bad for Cap “fans” who are going to miss it. This week is also awesome for having new solo offerings for both Gwen and Miles, as well as a new issue of the woefully-unappreciated Mockingbird. Everyone should be talking about this book… it’s really, really good!


DKTMR5covDC Releases

Art Ops #9
Dark Knight III The Master Race #5 (Of 8)
Deathstroke Annual #2
Grayson Annual #3
Legend Of Wonder Woman #7 (Of 9)
Suiciders Kings Of Hell.A. #4 (Of 6)
Teen Titans Annual #2

Perfect Pulls: Very quiet week from DC, with no new Rebirth offerings for the first time since it began. I have to admit, I would have thought a break from the event might be nice (especially for my wallet), but I miss it already! NEEDS MOAR REBIRTH IN MAH LIFE! This week does have the latest chapter of Dark Knight III, however, so you won’t want to completely ignore the DC shelves today.

East Of West #27
Empty Zone #9
Jupiter’s Legacy Volume 2 #1 (Of 5)
Plutona #5 (Of 5)
Sex #29
Sons Of The Devil #8
Starve #10

Perfect PullsJupiter’s Legacy is back today, and is just so gosh darned freakin’ good. I can’t stress that enough. It’s “you should be reading this even if you really hate Millar for some reason” good. There’s really no reason not to be reading this book, and those that preceded it, and you should all get on that right away. Like now. Go, why are you just staring at me, get to your shop and/or digital reading device of your choice!

I’m definitely checking out Cryptocracy from Dark Horse, because Van Jensen writes damn good comics. Also, Valiant has two of their biggest and best out today, with new issues of both X-O Manowar and my personal favorite, Bloodshot Reborn. 

Those are the highlights for Wednesday, June 29th. Anything you simply can’t live without, or simply can’t imagine reading? Share it in the comments!
