Normally this is when I post my "weekly pull" post. However, the owner of my main LCS has been sick the last couple of days...because Kansas weather is TERRIBLE....seriously, go check out the last 10 days of weather....it makes no goddamn sense. So, I went to my secondary spot, picked up my tiny pull list of like 3 books from there, and started catching up on some of my "to read" pile.
Sooo....Here's what I read throughout the day and some thoughts here-and-there.
1. The Last Ronin (IDW)
It was sooo good, but I'm not going to talk about it until maybe December 5th in public spaces because ofIDW massively shorting on pre-orders. I'm not gonna be that dick that ruins it. The 2nd printing releases on December 2nd. So, if you wanna chat about it, slide into them DM's.
2. Drakkon New Dawn #3 (Boom)
Pretty solid, kinda confused at the end, we'll see how it sets up the November release of the new series launch.
3. Three Jokers #3 of 3 (DC)
I'm conflicted on how I feel. I think I need to read 1-3 in a single sitting to get my head right. But, the end reveal is interesting.
4. MegaMan Fully Charged #3 (Boom)
I'm probably done with this book, its just not for me.
OLD STUFF BEGINS HERE =-)
5. Getting It Together #1 (Image)
This is an interesting coming of age tale with not one but two music playlists, massive embracing of some LGBT relationships, and some not-so-clean relational drama. I appreciate the Friends homage cover, because this is what the show would have looked like with everyone who is broken.
6. Dark Ark After the Flood #5 (Aftershock)
I'm sad that its done, I didn't know this was the end, but it was a fun 5-issue wrap to the Dark Ark world. Big fan, Cullen Bunn can do no wrong!
7. Autumnal #1 (Vault)
I think this is going to be AMAZING!!!!!!! #2 drops this week!
8. Yasmeen #3 (Scout)
Holy crap, this series keeps to get more amazing. I need to line up a creator interview! If I play my cards right, expect something in the future =-)
9. Concrete Jungle #1 (Scout)
Holy balls, this book was wild and amazing! I'm going to be all over this series in the future!
10. Justice League Annual #2 (DC)
While some of it was hoakey (yeah, but a lot of JL is)....I thought this was a fun "what if" with the Halls of Justice, and I'm sad Vendetti is not on the JL anymore, but I like Williamson.....so......
11. TMNT Raphael #1 (IDW)
Yeah, this is good 'ol reprint goodness, but I'm nostalgic AF after reading it, and can't wait for more!!!
12. Harley Quinn (WK Universe--DC Black)
This was ok, I'm not done with all of the Batman White Knight stuff....so I may trade wait this in the long run.
13. An Unkindness of Ravens #1 (Boom)
The stage-setting first 4 pages was dope. The premise of this is hauntingly interesting. I can't wait for book 2 to drop this week!
Left to Read....
Atlantis Wasn't Built for Tourists #2 (Scout)
Grit #3 (Scout)
Batman/Superman 12 (DC)
Joker Warzone (DC)
Power Rangers Sins of the Future (Boom)--A trade-length one shot (I think)
Come see the usual "Weekly Pull" tomorrow afternoon!
The journey of a 30-something father of three who's trying to break into the world of reviewing comics after a loooooong hiatus...
