Posted on August 3, 2016 at 12:00 pm 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!

mtt1covMarvel Releases

Civil War II Kingpin #2 (Of 4)
Daredevil Annual #1
Deadpool #16
Deadpool V Gambit #3 (Of 5)
Doctor Strange #10
Invincible Iron Man #12
Marvel Tsum Tsum #1 (Of 4)
Moon Knight #5
Punisher #4
Silk #11
Spidey #9
Squadron Supreme #10
Uncanny Inhumans #12
Uncanny X-Men #11
Vote Loki #3
Year Of Marvels The Unstoppable #1

Perfect Pulls: If you’re a fan of adorable marketing tie-ins, you’re in luck! Today’s Marvel Tsum-Tsum #1 is a great example of the Disney machine mashing together our favorite characters with their favorite profit margins, bringing together a recent hit collectible and the Marvel Universe in a way no one really asked for. That being said, hot dang are those Tsum-Tsum things cute as heck, so while I probably won’t buy this, I’m not really sad that it exists! I am really looking forward to Civil War II: Kingpin #2, however. This is the only Civil War II tie-in that has really caught my attention, and I’m definitely in to watch Wilson Fisk retake his empire from nothing yet again.

 

sm4covDC Releases

Aquaman #4
Art Ops #10
Batman #4
Batman ’66 Meets Steed And Mrs. Peel #2 (Of 6)
Batman Beyond #15
Bloodlines #5 (Of 6)
Green Arrow #4
Green Lanterns #4
Harley Quinn #1
Harley Quinn And Her Gang Of Harleys #4 (Of 6)
Injustice Gods Among Us Year Five #15
Justice League #2
Looney Tunes #232
Nightwing #2
Sheriff Of Babylon #9 (Of 12)
Suicide Squad Rebirth #1
Superman #4
Unfollow #10

Perfect Pulls: If you didn’t know Suicide Squad was out in theaters today, the DC list would probably tip you off. Today’s lineup has more Harley Quinns than a comic convention, and if that’s your thing you’re probably going to have a good day today. For the rest of us, there are new issues of several Rebirth hits like Nightwing and Green Arrow, along with some duds like Justice League and Green Lanterns. The two major flagships also have new releases, as Batman #4 continues to make the case for this new era of Batman, and Superman #4 probably has another animal-related feels moment designed to break my heart. Curse that book for being so good!

Black Science #23
Discipline #6
Faster Than Light #9
Fuse #20
Kill Or Be Killed #1
Low #15
Midnight Of The Soul #3 (Of 5)
Nailbiter #24
Paper Girls #8
Sex #30
Stray Bullets Sunshine And Roses #17
Tokyo Ghost #9
Trees #14
Walking Dead #157

Perfect Pulls: The newest Image title comes straight from the brilliant mind of Ed Brubaker, features the fantastic art of Sean Phillips, and tells the tale of a young man who is forced to become a deadly vigilante? Seriously? I don’t need any more information about Kill or Be Killed, just go ahead and take all of my money.
