Perfect Pulls: Marvel is partying this week like it’s 1999 all over again yet also 2099 at the same time… trust me, it makes sense. For the first time in years, Miguel O’Hara is in the spotlight again with Spider-Man 2099 #1, and I couldn’t be more excited about it. After being an integral part of the Superior-izing of Spider-Man, Miguel is now stuck in our time, trying to find a way back home while still doing as much good here as he can. Spidey 2099 was pretty much the only cool part of the 2099 brand, so don’t skip out on this. Also this week, Original Sin continues to tear apart the Marvel Universe one secret at a time, Wolverine brings the titular hero one step closer to death (for real this time, honest, I swear), and the outstanding Winter Soldier miniseries wraps up as well. Seriously, if you slept on that one and can’t get the back issues at your local shop, be sure to grab it when the TPB hits, that book was fantastic.

Perfect Pulls: DC is all about new beginnings today! Of course, the highlight has to be Grayson, the highly anticipated and likely-to-be-polarizing new book from DC that focuses on Dick Grayson’s new life as a spy, now that everyone who isn’t Batman thinks he’s dead. While I loved Nightwing, I’ll be the first to admit Dick was ready for a bit of an overhaul, and while I wouldn’t be opposed to the Nightwing role returning, I’m very excited to see how this new chapter plays out. Speaking of shady government entities, the Suicide Squad is back today as well, with New Suicide Squad bringing together new members like Deathstroke while taking away Amanda Waller’s autonomy that she used to have over the team. This was another book that needed new life, and should also be worth a look. Throw in new issues of Batman Eternal, Futures End and Superman Wonder Woman and you’ve got a great week from DC.

68 Rule Of War #4 (Of 4)
Death Vigil #1 (Of 8)
Ghosted #11
Great Pacific #16
Red City #2
Rise Of The Magi #2
Shutter #4
Spawn #245
Spread #1
Walking Dead #129

Perfect Pulls: Another hotly anticipated Image book finally hits shelves this week, this time in the form of Justin Jordan and Kyle Strahm’s Spread. Set in a future where we’ve unleashed something terrible from within the planet, humanity has been nearly destroyed and the only hope that remains is a single baby girl, that the hero of this book is going to have to protect in order to save us all. One look at that cover has me convinced this is going to be worth the price of admission, and early reviews have confirmed exactly that. Along with this comes another issues of Marc Silvestri’s great new book Rise of the Magi, and Spawn rounds the corner towards another massive milestone in this long-running series.

Perfect Pulls: I’ve been touting the excellence of Dynamite’s Gold Key Comics revivial, and in particular its reboot of Magnus: Robot Fighter, for quite some time now, and this week it looks like Dynamite is out to reward me for it. Along with the latest issue in the ongoing series, we also get Magnus: Robot Fighter #0, which tells the back story of Leeja: Human Hunter. If you’ve been reading this book, you know how exciting that is, and if you haven’t been reading this book, good god get on it now! Dynamite isn’t done there either, bringing its second-best Gold Key book Turok to shelves, as well as relaunching the classic vampire anti-hero Chastity as well. Throw in a double dose of Dark Horse’s excellent Terminator titles and a new issue of BOOM!’s new hit Lumberjanes and the indie shelves are full of great stuff today!

Those are the highlights for Wednesday, July 9th. Anything you simply can’t live without, or simply can’t imagine reading? Share it in the comments!
