A chance to re-visit old friends from Civil War, Age of Apocalypse, and Spider-Island? Yes, please! Throw in new issues of some of my other favorites, like Ghost Racers and Squadron Sinister, and then top it off with the premier of the Lando miniseries, and I am all about Marvel today!

Perfect Pulls: This week from DC is highlighted by the latest issue of Batman, and I couldn’t be more excited about it, and not just because I’m the world’s biggest Batfan. I haven’t been in love with a bold risk like the current “BatGordon” storyline since Superior Spider-Man, and I’m absolutely thrilled I get to see more of it in action today. Throw in new issues of Batman Superman, Gotham Academy, and the promising Justice League of America and there’s lots of DC goodness to be had.

Perfect Pulls: My first reaction to seeing today’s Image list was exactly this: “holy $#!*, Bloodstrike is back?!” My second reaction? Buying the hell out of the new Bloodstrike! Say what you want about Rob Liefeld, but Bloodstrike was one of the coolest of the “extreme” 90s teams, and as a huge fan of all things 90s Image, I’m thrilled to see it come back! Also this week, be sure to check out new issues of Saga, Walking Dead, Black Science, and the insanely good Descender.

Perfect Pulls: I’ve seen a lot of people online reacting to IDW’s Star Trek/Green Lantern crossover by asking how that’s supposed to work. That’s the wrong question to be asking; the right question is “how did it take this long for this to happen?!” I’m not even a big Star Trek guy, but I’m all about checking out this title. However, the internet is rejoicing at the return of Invader Zim in the pages of his new Oni Press book, and is sure to have an absolute conniption over the long-awaited Archie reboot, so I guess everyone’s happy in their own way!

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