James Fulton

I like these small weeks. No debuts this week, but a strong showing of independent books. It’s been probably two decades since Marvel and DC have been so under-represented in my pull file, largely because of how slowly Marvel is returning to a regular shipping schedule, and how little DC appeals to me now.

I’m looking forward to new issues of Alienated (so good), Excellence, Ginseng Roots, No One’s Rose, Oblivion Song (I’ve missed this book), and X-Force.

Babos: Have you tried Adventureman yet?

Fulton: No. I don’t really like the Dodsons, and I’ve decided to be more cautious in getting new titles. Am I making a mistake?

Babos: Yes

Fulton: Maybe I’ll catch it in trade then…

  • Adventureman #2 – Love the concept for this book, but it’s been a built of a slow built for the first two issues. Kind of hoping that it starts to pick up a bit as right now it feels like a lot of cool ideas without a solid framework to build on. Just not quite feeling a collection to the characters yet.
  • Young Justice #16 – Spotlight on Impulse this issue! I was running a little lot on this column this week, so I got to read this one before writing about it. I was kind of hoping we would get a little more understanding of what’s going on here, but this issue was worth it for the end with Tim, Conner, and Bart having some time just the three of them.
  • Black Panther And The Agents Of Wakanda #8 – Apparently this is the last issue of this series. Which is a shame because I like it far more than the core Avengers title. I have always loved quirky B-List characters, and this book has been a lot of fun. Sucks to see it go.
