Lots of new stuff this week, but a few disappointments. Well, even the best comics have a few dud issues, don’t they?
Only one comic on my list this week: Marvel’s Champions, which does an awesome job of demonstrating why Marvel’s events suck.
An unsubtle feminist lesson is followed by a beautiful twist in Wonder Woman #29
It’s a slow week, with only one new comic on my list. This is Detective Comics #963, and interestingly it’s a very Batman-lite issue.
Big comics week! I have four new issues this week. And they arrived early, too, which made me late for work but so worth it.

Also this week Azrael battles his AI self in Detective Comics and a not-so-mad scientist rules in Wonder Woman. Continue reading “My pull-list – 26 July 2017”
I have just two new issues this week, both strongly featuring women. The first is Aquaman, in which Mera unleashes an all-out assault on Atlantis; the second is Batwoman, tying up her first Rebirth arc with an epilogue that is really a prologue. Continue reading “My Pull-List – 19 July 2017”
