Posted on June 8, 2016 at 4:20 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!

Star Wars Poe Dameron #3
Thunderbolts #2
Venom Space Knight #8
Vision #8

Perfect Pulls: Let the tie-ins begin! Civil War II is a Really Big Deal, and every comic fan knows that means dozens of tie-in books. As a comic event junkie, I already know I’m on the hook for the two out today. That being said, I’m really hoping Civil War II‘s tie-ins actually lend something to the event, instead of being normal books with barely any connection. (Here’s looking at you, Infinity tie-ins.) There’s also a double-dose of Star Wars goodness this week, as well as new issues of the killer Vision and 90’s-tastic Thunderbolts.

Wonder Woman Rebirth #1

Perfect Pulls: Public service announcement, comic fans! If you’re determined not to miss anything Rebirth-related, you can’t rely on Rebirth being in the title. Action Comics #957 and Detective Comics #934 are very much Rebirth titles, as both flagships have (finally) returned to their original numbering. Along with those are three more specifically Rebirth-titled books, which I’m hoping are as promising as the first round. There’s also several other DC books out, which I can’t imagine are going to do well at all. Rebirth or bust, baby!

Perfect Pulls: Normally I jump on any new Image book for my preview here, but I’m sorry, there’s just something more important to talk about today… and that’s a new issue of The Fix! I don’t care how mad you are at Nick Spencer for turning Captain America into Captain Hydra; this book is so damn good you’ll get over it quick. If you’ve missed this one so far, today also has a third-printing of the first issue and a second-printing of the second, so you have no excuse. Buy them all, and learn to love Spencer all over again! (Or, you know, just continue loving him, like the rest of us.)

Perfect Pulls: It’s pretty rare nowadays to see cross-publisher crossovers, but there’s a whopper of one on this list today. DC and BOOM! have brought two of their most popular new franchises together in Lumberjanes Gotham Academy #1. I don’t know many people who like one of these things and don’t like the other, so I suspect this collaboration will yield excellent results. Also, Sherlock fans won’t want to miss Titan’s newest addition to their lineup, as they kick off a brand-new miniseries

Those are the highlights for Wednesday, June 8th. Anything you simply can’t live without, or simply can’t imagine reading? Share it in the comments!
