My Pull List (Comics I’m Buying)
I reserve many of my comics in advance. This week will find the six titles below waiting safely for me behind the counter at my local comic book shop:
- The Batman’s Grave #6 from DC Comics – As this 12-issue series reaches its half-way point, it was just announced all 12 will be collected in hardcover once it completes. I’ll be picking up both a and b covers this issue.
- Blackwood: The Mourning After #2 from Dark Horse Comics – Waiting for this to wrap up before binging the whole thing. Check out the original mini too.
- Decorum #1 from Image Comics – The only debut in my pull this week – but no small thing as it’s Hickman returning to image for a creator-owned story about an assassin.
- Heavy Metal #298 from Heavy Metal – I’ve jumped back on this after some time away as it ramps up to #300.
- The Man Who Effed Up Time #2 from AfterShock Comics – From the creator of Chew, I’ll be letting these build up a bit before reading the first arc.
- Wonder Woman #753 from DC Comics – Trying this out after the recent #750. They’re shipping several times a month, so if you’re a fan you’re loving things right now.
