Posted on July 29, 2015 at 5:30 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!

1602 Witch Hunter Angela #2
Age Of Ultron Vs Marvel Zombies #2
Black Widow #20
Daredevil #17
Deadpool’s Secret Secret Wars #3 (Of 4)
Deathlok #10

Marvel Universe Ultimate Spider-Man Web Warriors #9
Powers #4
S.H.I.E.L.D. #8
Star Wars #7
Thors #2
X-Men ’92 #2

Perfect Pulls: It’s a relatively quiet day from the House of M (no, not the Magneto version), but there are definitely a couple of titles worth getting to the store right away. First off, Law and Thorder #2, uh, I mean, Thors #2 is out today, continuing what just may be one of the most unexpected and outstanding surprises of the Secret Wars event. The Samnee/Waid Daredevil run has a new issue out as well, continuing the bittersweet memory that we’ll have to say goodbye to this, but that the Soule/Garney run is right around the corner. Also, don’t miss out on the suitably epic Age of Ultron vs Marvel Zombies, as well as a new issue of the canon-and-not-afraid-to-flaunt it Star Wars monthly as well!


dsanncovDC Releases

Batgirl #42
Batgirl Annual #3
Deathstroke Annual #1
Flash Annual #4
He-Man The Eternity War #8
Justice League Gods And Monsters Superman #1
Lobo Annual #1
Sandman Overture Special Edition #5
Superman #42

Perfect Pulls: If the Marvel lineup is quiet today, the DC lineup is a group of nuns in a library. But when Deathstroke Annual #1 is one of the few titles coming, it’s still a good day! (This is also definitely the only time nuns and Deathstroke have been mentioned in the same paragraph.) Along with the orange-and-blue killing machine of choice, this week sees new releases in the way-too-good He-Man The Eternity War, hipster Babs fans can look forward a double-dose with both Batgirl #42 and Batgirl Annual #3, and Sandman fans get another one of their infrequent hits. Maybe today isn’t that quiet after all!

Spawn #254
Thrilling Adventure Hour Presents Sparks Nevada Marshal On Mars #4 (Of 4)
Tithe #4 (Of 4)
Walking Dead #139
Wayward #10

Perfect Pulls: No new Image books this week, so good news, you’re not going to have to reassess your comic budget today. However, here’s hoping your planned accordingly. With new issues of books like Copperhead, Spawn, Southern Bastards, Low, Walking Dead, and Wayward (just to mention a few), it’s still a day where you may have to decide between getting all your Image books and eating Ramen for a week. But hey, that choice is obvious, right? Besides… we all love ramen.

Perfect Pulls: Speaking of double-doses, Avatar Press has something you don’t see often: two subsequent issues of a comic out on the same day. Crossed Badlands sees issues 81 and 82 hit stands at the same time, so if you’re a fan of that book, you’ve got two reasons to be excited today. Valiant’s cooler-than-the-other-side-of-the-pillow ninja assassin Ninjak has a new issue today, and if ninjas are your thing, you’re certainly grabbing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #48, right? Finally, Hellboy fans won’t want to miss a new Lobster Johnson one shot, and rejoice, as a new issue of Escape from New York is out today too!

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