Pull List for July 19 2017

July 18, 2017

Follow me on Twitter (@XMenXPert). I could really use a light comics week.

I’ll go to the store for: America #5, by Gabby Rivera (with help from Kelly Thompson), Ramon Villalobos, Tamra Bonvillain; Bitch Planet Triple Feature, by various; Insexts #12, by Marguerite Bennett, Ariela Kristantina; Luke Cage #3, by David Walker, Nelson Blake II, Marcio Menyz, and Joe Sabino; Ms. Marvel #20, by G. Willow Wilson, Marco Failla, Ian Herring and Travis Lanham; USAvengers #8, by Al Ewing, Paco Medina, Juan Vlasco, Jesus Aburtov, and Joe Caramagna; Ultimates 2 #9, by Al Ewing, Travel Foreman, Dan Brown, and Joe Sabino

I’ll also review: Astonishing X-Men #1, by Charles Soule, Jim Cheung, Morales, Isanove, and Beredo; Totally Awesome Hulk #21, by Greg Pak, Robert Gill, and no frigging listing for the others; X-Men Gold #8, by Marc Guggenheim, R.B. Silva, Adriano Di Benedetto, Frank Martin, and Cory Petit.

So that’s 7 comics I’m picking up, and three additional reviews. Ugh, every week is like this.

There’s plenty to be excited about. Kate in America! With Kelly Thompson co-writing, so Kate reads like Kate. From the preview, the KateMerica friendship looks to be handled beautifully. Villalobos won me over on Nighthakwk, and he’s working again with Bonvillain, so the art will work for me, too. It’s gonna be good. The Bitch Planet Triple Feature, allowing creators to play in the sandbox KSD and DeLandro have created. The first issue was great, no reason to expect the second to fall short. Insexts is always gorgeously fucked up. Luke Cage has been interesting, with Walker telling a pretty intense story. Ms. Marvel is Ms. Marvel. USAvengers is one of the few titles I don’t mind tying into Secret Empire, and I’m happy to see more of Toni. And Ultimates 2 has been good, with some cool cosmic stuff, and it looks like this will have more of that, continuing to stay clear of Secret Empire.

October solicits are out. My Marvel pull list for that month: Avengers #672, Black Bolt #6, Hawkeye #11, All-New Wolverine #25, Hulk #11, Ms. Marvel #23, Squirrel Girl #25, Generation X #7, Luke Cage #166, All-New Wolverine #26, America #8, Black Panther #165, Moon Girl #24, Captain Marvel #125, USAvengers #11. 15 titles. Pretty light.

I’m still doing my training. It’s still boring. We’re starting to get to buddy-jack – sit in and listen to calls on the floor. That’s a bit more interesting than sitting and reading through training material. One thing that kinda sucks is there’s no wi-fi there, and I have no data plan. So I can’t access the Internet at work. It just means I’m reading on breaks. I also hate that the only places nearby to get food at a Tim Horton’s and a chip truck. I’ve been going to the chip truck a lot, because I keep forgetting to pick something up for lunches. I’ll need to start getting things. Just microwaveable crap.

I may soon have a date. One of the girls in my training class messaged me on a dating site. I’m not sure if she messaged me because she wanted to go out with me, or if she just wanted to chat since we’re in the same training class. Either way, I figured I may as well ask if she wanted to go out. She’s got a cold right now, so we won’t be doing anything this week, but once she feels better, we might hang out after work some time. We’ll see how it goes.

I’m hoping to go to Spider-Man Homecoming this weekend. My friend might be coming down so we can go.

I’m still playing Avengers Academy. I’ve got 56 characters unlocked, working on the 57th. For this month’s Homecoming event, I’ve gotten Spider-Man, Agent Venom, Spider-Gwen, Spider-Girl (Anya), Dr. Octopus, Venom, Green Goblin, Spider-Man 2099, and Spider-Ham. And I’m working on Silver Sable now. And soon, I’ll get MJ. And I’m working on Silk, too. I’m really hoping I can max out Spider-Girl before the event ends. And I’m working on maxing out Spider-Gwen, because that costume. Most of the other characters, I don’t really care about. And in Marvel Future Fight, I’ve got Storm! Woot! It’ll take a little while to max her out, but I’m gonna do it. Because Storm. Storm’s the best. (I still want her to get another solo, written by Yona Harvey.)

Anyway, that’ll do for this week.
