Hex’s Pull List 07/29/09

(Cover to JSA #29)
Medium sized week for me. Looks like this:

Dark X-Men Beginning #2
New Avengers #55
Secret Warriors #6
X-Men Forever #4


Blackest Night: Tales of the Corps #3
Detective Comics #855
Justice Society #29
Superman #690
Wednesday Comics #4

A rare week for me where I’m picking up more DC than Marvel. I’m most looking forward to reading Detective Comics and JSA with its new creative team.

I also managed to order online Robin 3000 this week for £2 which I thought was a bargain. I have no clue if it will be any good or not I just liked the idea of Batman & Robin in the future and thought it had a cool cover. Anyone read it? Let me know what you thoughts.

I’ve also been reading the Old Boy manga series which I picked up beacuse I love the film. I’ve never read manga before but have read volumes 1 & 2 (of 7) so far and am really enjoying it. I plan on doing a review of the whole series when I finish and will be comparing it to the film.

What are you guys picking up this week?


  1. Blackest Night: Tales of the Corps #3

    That's it. I'm embarassed.

  2. I've never even heard of the Robin 3000 comics until you mentioned them Matthew. Upon reading up on it, it looks like something I may be interested in checking out. If you don't mind, let me know what you think of it after you've given it a read.

    I'll be reading:

    Blackest Night: Tales of the Corps #3
    Dark Reign: Young Avengers #3
    Dark X-Men: The Begining #2
    Fantastic Four #569
    Justice League of America #35
    Justice Society of America #29
    New Avengers #55(just to torture myself)
    Superman #690
    Teen Titans #73
    War of Kings: Ascension #4
    Wednesday Comics #4(even though I haven't read 1,2 or 3 yet!)
    Wonder Woman #34

    Damn, just one book for Robert? That's just sad! Hey, it looks like I win the award for most comics this week! What's my prize(besides a big credit card bill)?

  3. Old Boy is a great series. I'll be looking forward to your review of it.

    As for the books I'm getting this week:

    Detective Comics #855
    Secret Warriors #6
    Superman #690
    Thunderbolts #134
    Wonder Woman #34

    Small week for me. I already read Ultimatum #5 and New Avengers #55 and they were every bit as terrible as I knew they would be.

  4. I responded to your inquery about Tales of the Lanterns #3 over on our blog. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.


  5. @ Robert -Dont worry Robert, thats why we're here to do reviews and stuff, to let you know whats good and whats not for future purchases.
    @ X-Man - yeah big week for you x-man. I'll make sure to do a review of Robin 3000 for you when I'm done, and I still look forward to your thoughts on wednesday comics. (Plus did you manage to get Wanted TPB yet?)
    @ J - I've ordered Old Boy number 3 today. Loving it. Seems New avengers is still not getting better yet then? Damn shame, i was hoping a new arc might improve things a little.

  6. New Avengers needs a total overhaul and a new writer before it gets any better. Yeah, I did get myself the Wanted trade, but I haven't gotten around to reading it yet. Hopefully soon, but I've got literally hundreds of comics laying around that I haven't gotten to!
