Perfect Pulls: Few things put a smile on my face like seeing a new issue of Old Man Logan on the Marvel list here at the Comic Corner. The book continues to shine as one of the coolest Secret Wars tie-ins, which surprises absolutely no one. Speaking of outstanding Secret Wars tie-ins, the same can also be said for Civil War, which has also been one of my favorite titles in this event, so getting both in one day is definitely sweet. Throw in new issues of Lando, Magneto and another excellent tie-in in Marvel Zombies and you’ve got a more-than-decent day from Marvel!

Superman #43
Teen Titans #11
We Are Robin #3

Perfect Pulls: So many favorites on the DC list today! Of course, I never miss a chance to tout the awesomeness that is Deathstroke, so I have to get that out right away. However, I’d also be remiss if I didn’t make mention of new issues of Grayson, Gotham by Midnight, Batgirl and We Are Robin, for those of us that have sworn an oath to the Bat-family. Then you add Flash, Superman, and Sinesto into the mix and I’m going to have a lot of reading to do today… and I’m not complaining!

Covenant #3
East Of West #20
Low #9
Rasputin #8
Roche Limit Clandestiny #4
Rumble #6
Sons Of The Devil #4
Spawn #255
Spread #9
They’re Not Like Us #7
Thief Of Thieves #30
Valhalla Mad #4

Perfect Pulls: Is that East of West I see there? While it’s easy to get wrapped up in the greatness that is Hickman’s Secret Wars, let us not forget the other awesome things he’s doing, with East of West at the top of that list! The latest issue kicks off a new story arc, “The Nation Rises,” and I’m all about diving back into this killer book. Other guaranteed Image hits this week include the always-epic Low, a new issue of the Image stalwart Spawn, and a new issue of the soon-to-be-on-TV Thief of Thieves, just to name a few!

Perfect Pulls: Are you, like myself, a big fan of Valiant’s super-spy extraordinaire Ninjak? Than today is a good day for you… well, sort of. The good news is you get a double-dose of the purple badass, with a new issue of his solo title, as well as his Book of Death one-shot Fall of Ninjak. Of course, one of those involves Ninjak dying, which is why I say sort of… but hey, this is comics, death is like the flu! If you prefer your indie books to be on a more epic scale, than you may not want to miss the latest issue of IDW’s Godzilla in Hell, as epic is truly the only word to describe it. Finally, fans of Matt Kindt’s Mind MGMT won’t want to miss the newest addition to the line, New MGMT, premiering this week from Dark Horse!

Those are the highlights for Wednesday, August 26th. Anything you simply can’t live without, or simply can’t imagine reading? Share it in the comments!
