Pull list for January 28 2015

January 27, 2015

I don’t work tomorrow, so I’ll do my reviews.

I’ll go to the store for: Bitch Planet #2, by Kelly Sue DeConnick and Valentine De Landro; My Little Pony #27, by Katie Cook and Andy Price; Spider-Man 2099 #8, by Peter David and Will Sliney; Uncanny X-Men #30, by Brian Bendis and Chris Bachalo.

I’ll also review: Amazing X-Men #16, by Chris Yost and Jorge Fornes; Deadpool #41, by Gerry Duggan, Brian Posehn and Salva Espin; Spider-Man and the X-Men #2, by Elliott Kalan and Marco Failla; Uncanny Avengers #1, by Rick Remender and Daniel Acuna; Wolverines #4, by Ray Fawkes and Ariela Kristantina.

So that’s four comics I’m picking up, and 7 reviews. Not too heavy a week.

I’m most anticipating Bitch Planet. Obviously. The first issue was fantastic, and I’m expecting the second issue to be even better. I’m also excited for Uncanny X-Men, so we can finally end this whole Last Will arc. It’s lasted too long at this point. It should’ve wrapped up last issue, but it ended up dragging until this one. So I’m glad it’s ending. At least, I assume it’s ending. I don’t see how it could last any longer.

So I discovered something. Emma Rios, my all-time favourite artist, is also going to be doing writing. In addition to Pretty Deadly – which I want to be out now – she’s got a couple comics coming out this year where she’ll be writer and artist. They’re both magazines where she’s collaborating with Brandon Graham. There’s Island, which will be an anthology magazine, but rather than short stories, creators will do issue-sized stories, but still with multiple stories in each issue. There’s also 8 House, which is a shared-universe deal. So I’m excited for lots of Emma Rios this year. She hasn’t had any comics come out since April, and it’s looking like it’ll be June before any of her new stuff starts coming out. That’s a long time to go without her gorgeous art.

I finished reading The Law of Superheroes. It was definitely an interesting read. It’s an introduction to the law, using superheroes of examples to make it more fun, and as a result, easier to understand. I’m an idiot, so I still didn’t understand everything, and retained very little, but that’s just me. People who aren’t as stupid as I am should be fine. There is some humour in the book, though I would’ve liked a few more jokes here and there. Still, it was an entertaining and interesting read.

This puts me at three books finished this year. My resolution was to finish 24 books over the course of the year – 12 text books, 12 graphic novels. I’m at two text books (The Bone Flower Queen and The Law of Superheroes) and one graphic novel (This One Summer). My next text book will be Nanowhere, by Chris Howard. Next graphic novel? I’m undecided, but it’ll probably be Courtney Crumrin – Monstrous Holiday. I won’t be counting comics I read on a per-issue basis, even though I totally could.

My schedule this week is Thursday 12:30-9, Friday 4-10, Saturday 7-3:30 (though I need to talk to someone about that today – that’s only 9 hours between those shifts, and by law, it needs to be at least 11), Sunday 3-11, Monday 4:30-8:30, then next Wednesday 7-3:30. So I’ll do my next pull list on Monday, then a normal post on Tuesday, and my reviews next Wednesday as usual.

My new friend and I have been playing through Super Mario Wii. We’re on World 3. Sometimes I kick ass, sometimes I suck. My other friend got pissed off at me last night because I wasn’t replying to her texts, but there seemed to be something weird going on with them. It wasn’t my fault. She thought I was ignoring her to spend time with my new friend, but I really wasn’t. So I need to explain it to her later.

I’ve been watching The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore. It’s OK. I think the main thing that’ll keep me watching it is that it comes in between The Daily Show and @midnight. If I had to actually put in effort to watch it, I probably wouldn’t bother.

That’s all I’ve got for this week.
