Nick’s Pull List – 8/29/2012

Sorry for the delay, I’m a week behind on comics! Here’s my picks for August 29th, the last comics for the month. Action, Horror, Events, Fights, Gore, and Time Travel!

 

AvX Vs #5

AvX Vs #5

Matt Fraction, Leinil Francis Yu

This is probably my favorite AvX fightbook yet. Possibly rivaling the Spider-Man and Hope conversation about responsibility and power for the best book of the entire AvX event. Storm and her husband, Black Panther, fight it out in this one, it’s action and melancholy. Fraction continues to write Hawkeye as the ex-villain hero he is, and it’s great. He takes on Angel and Psylocke in this one.

 

 

Captain Marvel #3

Captain Marvel #3

Kelly Sue DeConnick, Dexter Soy, Ed McGuinness

Boy, I hope this picks up a bit. It’s really pretty, and the dialogue is good, but they jumped right into this time-travel plot, and I’m really not that hooked. I’ll keep reading, for now, if for no other reason than how much I loved the last Ms. Marvel series.

 

 

Crossed Badlands #12

Crossed Badlands #12

David Lapham, Jacen Burrows

This is the first time any of the Crossed characters from different stories have, er, crossed over, I guess. I’m excited to see where this goes.

 

 

FF #21

FF #21

Jonathan Hickman, Nick Dragotta, Mike Choi

HEY GUISE HAVE SOME MORE INHUMANS AND KREE STORY THAT WILL NEVER END

 

 

Locke And Key Grindhouse (One Shot)

Locke And Key Grindhouse (One Shot)
Joe Hill, Gabriel Rodriguez 

An excellent one-shot, should keep me from going into Locke &  Key withdrawl until the final story starts up this fall. Also, there’s an ad on the back page for a replica set of the keys from the comic. Drool.

 

New Mutants #48

New Mutants #48

Dan Abnett, Felix Ruix, John Tyler Christopher

This is my favorite kind of New Mutants stories: Self-contained plots that don’t involve the rest of the Marvel world.

 

 

Skullkickers #17

Skullkickers #17

Jim Zub, Edwin Huang, Saejin Oh

So, if you’ve never read Skullkickers, here’s what you need to know: Someone took their very best D&D campaign and turned it into a comic about a dwarf and a bald guy with a magic gun, and their adventures. Excellent violence and comic mischief, hilarious onomonopia and background character dialogue.

 

 

Uncanny X-Force #30

Uncanny X-Force #30

Rick Remender, David Williams, Jerome Opena

Shit’s getting real. The punch was telegraphed, but still hit hard.

 

Wolverine And The X-Men #15

Wolverine And The X-Men #15

Jason Aaron, Jorge Molina

Best X-Book ongoing, currently. Great character exchanges in this book, my particular favorite was between Quintavius “Quentin” Quirinius Quire (AKA Kid Omega) and Charles “Professor X” Xavier. I think this issue was the calm before the storm, going into the AvX finale.
