Posted on August 12, 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!

Years Of Future Past #4

Perfect Pulls: Is there any better feeling than seeing a new issue of Secret Wars on this week’s list? Let me answer that for you: NO! Every issue of this mega-event’s main title drops bombshells in every panel, and I have no doubt this will be more of the same… and I can’t wait! There are lots of good Secret Wars tie-ins represented as well, such as Attilan Rising, Planet Hulk, Battleworld, Secret Wars 2099 and the surprisingly delightful Ghost Racers. Also, since I’m sure everyone was all over the first issue, don’t miss the second issue of Lando on shelves today as well.

Action Comics #43
All-Star Section 8 #3 (Of 6)
Arrow Season 2.5 #11
Batman #43
Batman Superman #23
Catwoman #43
Constantine The Hellblazer #3
DC Comics Bombshells #1
Earth 2 Society #3

Justice League Gods And Monsters #1 (Of 3)
Justice League United #12
Mortal Kombat X #9
New Suicide Squad #11
Red Hood Arsenal #3
Scooby-Doo Where Are You #60
Starfire #3

Perfect Pulls: It’s pretty safe to say that the day of the month where both Batman and Batman Superman drop at the same time is easily my favorite DC day. Two great books that are made even better by feeling like you’ve gotten a double-dose of awesome! Another book that never fails to impress is Action Comics, so having that out on the same day is another excellent reward. Throw in new issues of books like Gotham Academy and Green Arrow and you’ve got a mighty fine lineup from DC.

Artemis IX #1 (One Shot)
Astronauts In Trouble #3
Beauty #1

Savior #5
Shutter #14
Skullkickers #100
Starve #3
Velvet #11
Walking Dead #145

Perfect Pulls: The newest offering from Image sounds like it might hit a bit too close to our own society. Beauty #1 shows us a world where perfect beauty is obtainable; in fact, it’s a sexually transmitted disease. Needless to say, what seems like an amazing thing comes with a heavy price, and two detectives will be the first to stumble across it. Considering our own society is littered with people who are worshipped for nothing other than being pretty, I suspect this one will make us take a good look at ourselves, and I love comics that do that! Also this week, don’t miss out on new issues of Walking Dead, Descender, Fuse, Dream Police and a whole lot more from a loaded Image day!

Valiant Entertainment:

X-O Manowar #39

Perfect Pulls: I am so very excited for a new issue of Star Trek Green Lantern! The first issue was exactly what I wanted; cool fanservice and a fun story that wasn’t taking itself too seriously but also wasn’t skimping on the quality. The best crossover events don’t try and impress nonbelievers, they try and reward the people they know are paying the price of admission, and that’s fans of one or both brands. This book clearly gets that, and looks to be a sweet ride for fans of either Star Trek or GL! This week also has an excellent double-dip from Valiant with new issues of Unity and X-O Manowar, the return of Mulder and Scully in X-Files Season 11 #1, and Sleepy Hollow fans won’t want to miss the latest comic offering set in that world, Providence.

Those are the highlights for Wednesday, August 12th. Anything you simply can’t live without, or simply can’t imagine reading? Share it in the comments!
