Pull List Roundtable 10/24/2018: Heroes In Crisis #2, Dead Kings #1, Lodger #1, Books Of Magic #1, Infinity Wars & More

James Fulton

  • Dead Kings #1 – Steve Orlando is an interesting writer (when working on creator-owned stuff), and this new fantasy/science fiction series looks intriguing to me.
  • Lodger #1 – I’m a huge fan of David Lapham, and don’t quite know how he’s managed to write and draw another series while still working on Stray Bullets. It’s been a long time since he’s started a new series, so I’m ready for this.
  • I’m also looking forward to new issues of Aliens: Dust to Dust (finally), Beasts of Burden, Days of Hate, Die! Die! Die!, Punisher, Doctor Aphra, X-Men Red, and X-O Manowar.

Lots going on this week…

  • Books of Magic #1 – Books of Magic is basically my sister’s all time favorite comic, so huge shout out to her on this. To be honest…I have never actually read it. BOO HISS! But I will be picking up this issue to check it out.
  • Spider-Geddon #2 – The Inheritors are back with a vengeance. We also have tie in issues with Ghost-Spider and Spider-Girls coming out this week. I have been enjoying Spider-Geddon, though I have gotten a little Spider-Event fatigue going on.
  • Infinity Wars Arachknight #1, Sleepwalker #2, and Soldier Supreme #2 – Speaking of events… Infinity Wars has a lot going on, but not sure how much it’s going to stick, so I’ve had a hard time really getting into it, even though the concept is a lot of fun.
  • Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #32 – I hate to be a downer, but I didn’t enjoy issue 31. The new direction just feels like a huge departure from the first 30 issues. It didn’t feel like any of the characters were real fleshed out, they just drew random Power Rangers together as a team but without focusing on their actual personalities. Hopefully this series will grab me again, but last issue left me a little cautious.
  • Heroes in Crisis #2 – HOLY CRAP AT THAT FIRST ISSUE! DC really put out a hit on sidekicks (I read this right after Nightwing was shot in the head)! The first issue definitely grabbed my attention as a reader. I know a lot of people have been down on this, but I am real curious to see where this book goes!
  • Dead Kings #1 – Aftershock described this one as “True Grit set in the world of Final Fantasy.” That is a hell of a concept. Sounds like I will be picking up another Aftershock comic!
