Welcome to Tyler’s Comic Corner, where I highlight the majority of this week’s new comic releases.

Perfect Pulls: If you’re not a fan of digital comics, you may have missed out on Civil War II: Ulysses, part of Marvel’s Infinite line of digital-first releases that come out in paper form later on. I only mention it because this book has filled the void in my heart left by the often-delayed Karnak, in that it features the badass Inhuman being just awful to Ulysses in the best ways possible. If you also like Karnak’s brand of douchebaggery, you should check out this book!

 

BBR1covDC Releases

Action Comics #962
Batgirl #2
Blue Beetle Rebirth #1
Clean Room #11
Deathstroke #1
Detective Comics #939
Flash #5
Hal Jordan And The Green Lantern Corps #3
Harley Quinn #1
Harley’s Little Black Book #4
Hellblazer #1
Lucifer #9
Red Thorn #10
Scooby-Doo Where Are You #72
Six-Pack And Dogwelder Hard-Travelin’ Heroz #1 (Of 6)
Teen Titans #23
Titans #2
Wacky Raceland #3
Wonder Woman #5

Perfect Pulls: One of the New 52’s more interesting ideas that seemed to just vanish makes its return today in Blue Beetle Rebirth #1. I know sales weren’t great for the New 52 version of this title, but I was genuinely surprised by that. I know he’s not Ted Kord, but the Blue Beetle is one of DC’s most fan-favorite characters, and Jaime Reyes seemed to have a lot of potential as a character. This week he gets another chance, and I hope this time it sticks with fans!

 

LoF1covImage Releases

Aloha Hawaiian Dick #5 (Of 5)
Chew #57
Invincible #130
Island #10
Lake Of Fire #1
Mechanism #2
Outcast #20
Renato Jones The One Percent #4
She Wolf #3
Snotgirl #2
Thief Of Thieves #34

Perfect Pulls: I am a huge sucker for stories that take a classic setting and give it a fantastic twist, so I am all about Lake of Fire. Take a Crusades-style setting and throw in dangerous aliens crash landing in the middle of their war? Knights versus aliens? That’s a great way to ensure I buy your book. Also, don’t miss the latest issue of Renato Jones, It may depress you in how accurate it describes the world we live it, but it looks damn good doing it.
