Tyler’s Comic Corner – 9/26 Edition

Posted on September 26, 2012 at 8:57 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!

Marvel Releases

Amazing Spider-Man #694
Astonishing X-Men #54
Captain America and Black Widow #637
Captain Marvel #4
Deadpool #61
FF #22
Gambit #3
Hit-Girl #3 (of 5)
Incredible Hulk #14
Invincible Iron Man #525
Journey into Mystery #644
Punisher #16
Secret Avengers #37
Space Punisher #3 (of 4)
Ultimates #16
Winter Soldier #11
Wolverine #313
Wolverine and the X-Men #17
X-Men #36
X-Men Legacy #274
X-Treme X-Men #4

Perfect Pulls: Marvel NOW is suddenly just a week away from getting underway, so many of the releases we’re seeing now (particularly this week) actually represent the end of many long-running series. Here’s looking at you, Wolverine, Cap and Spider-Man. Also, fans of Marvel’s Ultimate line are going to want to pick up Ultimates #16. I can’t explain why for fear of spoilers, but trust me, it’s going to be awesome.

DC Releases

All-Star Western #0
American Vampire #0
Aquaman #0
Batman Incorporated #0
Batman The Dark Knight #0
Before Watchmen: Ozymandias #3 (of 6)
Flash #0
Fury of Firestorm #0
I, Vampire #0
Justice League Dark #0
New Deadwardians #7 of 8
Phantom Lady #2 (of 4)
Red Lanterns #0
Savage Hawkman #0
Superman #0
Talon #0
Team Titans #0
Voodoo #0

Perfect Pulls: More hotly-anticipated zero issues this week, including Aquaman, Flash, Superman and, most importantly, Batman Incorporated. This week also starts the beginning of the new Talon monthly, a spin off of the Night of Owls event. I’m looking forward to it, though I wish this Talon had left the 90’s era costume behind and stuck with the cool standard Talon getup, yeesh. Teen Titans promises a new origin for Tim Drake, and if his new origin is even half as surprising as Jason Todd’s (as revealed in Red Hood #0) then it will definitely be worth the read. Another cancellation as well this week; Voodoo #0 is the final issue of the series.

Image Releases

Dancer #5 (of 5) 
Debris #3 (of 4)
Elephantmen #43
Happy #1 (of 4)
Invincible #95
Mind the Gap #5
Prophet #29
Skullkickers #18
Super Dinosaur #14
Witchblade #160
Youngblood #74

Perfect Pulls: The home stretch to Invincible #100 begins, with only 5 issues left until the inevitably bloody milestone. Dancer #5 concludes an excellent comic from Nathan Edmondson, a writer more comic fans should be aware of. Also, from a writer EVERY comic fan is aware of, we have Grant Morrison’s Happy beginning this week. A book about a former-cop-turned-drunken-hitman, who’s life gets turned around at rock-bottom by a tiny blue horse named Happy. Yes, you read that right; clearly this is a book worth investigating.

Perfect Pulls: Highlight of the indie scene this week looks to be Hero Worship, a great miniseries with Scott Murphy (Clone Wars) and Zak Penn (mostly known for a low budget romantic comedy called The Avengers) at the helm. Higher Earth has been sci-fi comic greatness and this issue is being specifically marketed as a perfect jumping on point for new readers. BPRD’s odd numbering may make you forget that this is actually the 99th issue, with major changes and (thankfully) sequential numbering starting at 100. Also, I can’t let a release in this series go by without saying it: read the new Turtles comics. You’ll be so happy you did. I promise.

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