Pull List Roundtable 7/3/2019 – Walking Dead, Year Of The Villain, Sea Of Stars & More!


James Fulton

It’s another relatively small week! There are two new series I’m interested in:

  • Sea of Stars – This new Image book by Jason Aaron, Dennis Hallum, and Stephen Green looks interesting.
  • Star Wars: Target Vader – There is definitely some kind of diminishing returns thing happening with the Star Wars book, but this mini features bounty hunters, so I’m down.
  • I’m also looking forward to new issues of Black Hammer: Age of Doom, Deathstroke, Immortal Hulk, Man-Eaters, Punisher, Uncanny X-Men, and The Walking Dead.

Got a lot to talk about this week!

  • The Walking Dead #193 – SURPRISE LAST ISSUE! I give Image a ton of credit for managing to keep this secret under wraps as long as they did. I haven’t read TWD in a long time, but I am curious enough to pick this one up.
  • Aero #1 – I can’t even remember which character introduced in War of the Realms this is or why he or she deserves their own book. Unless this book has some kind of Thunderbolts-like twist, I can’t see it lasting more than a handful of issues.
  • Ms Marvel Annual #1 – I love when Marvel used to do crossovers in their annuals. This year it’s Acts of Evil, a play on Acts of Vengeance where Marvel characters faces off against villains they normally didn’t encounter much. This issue features Ms Marvel taking on Super Skrull. I am very much on board with this one!
  • Adventures of Super Sons #12 – I am happy we got a 12 issue reprieve from Super Sons being cancelled, but I am not sure what the current DC status quo means for future team-ups between Superboy and Robin. I love this pairing, and I am pretty sad to see it go.
  • Year of the VillainJustice League #27, Harley Quinn #63, and Deathstroke #45 are all Year of the Villain tie-ins. Not to be confused with DC’s other events Event Leviathan and Doomsday Clock. Big things happening in DC right now!
  • Superman Up In the Sky #1 – Featuring Tom King’s first Superman work! These were originally available in the 100-Page Giants from Walmart. Glad to see them available in another form!
  • Postal Deliverance #1 – POSTAL IS BACK, BAYBEE! Uhm…nuff said? Postal was one of my favorite Image books over the last few years and I’m glad to see we are getting a little bit more.
  • Sea Of Stars #1 – When I see Jason Aaron and Dennis Hallim co-writing a book, I am going to buy it pretty much sight unseen. But this book is about a space trucker, so it just sounds like the kind of sci-fi weirdness I would love no matter who was writing it.
  • Space Bandits #1 (Of 5) – Millar has had a real solid track record with his Image work. I don’t know if this book stands out really to me, but I will likely check it out just based on how much I enjoy the rest of his Millarworld comics.
