Summer Pull List Cleaning

Avengers-Spiderman Cleaning

With DC launching their new DC You titles and Marvel finally announcing their plans for after Secret Wars I decided to do a little Spring Summer Cleaning of the old Pull List.  To start off, here is what my current Pull List looks like:

Physical Books

  • Wytches
  • Angela: Asgard’s Assassin
  • All-New X-Men
  • Spider-Gwen
  • Jupiter’s Circle
  • Fight Club 2 (LS)
  • Wonder Woman
  • Batman
  • Batgirl
  • Gotham Academy
  • Superman/Wonder Woman
  • Jupiter’s Legacy (LS)

Digital Books

  • Sensation Comics Featuring Wonder Woman
  • Catwoman

*LS indicates it is a limited series and not ongoing

My ultimate goal is to bring this list down to a lean mean 10.  Fight Club 2 is a limited series but is coming out monthly so I consider it a number in my list.  Jupiter’s Legacy is so infrequent that while it is on the list I don’t really consider it a “monthly cost”.

Here are the books I dropped:

Jupiters Circle

  • Wytches
  • Angela: Asgard’s Assassin
  • Jupiter’s Circle
  • Gotham Academy
  • Superman / Wonder Woman

These books aren’t bad but I find my self letting them stack up 3-4 months at a time with no desire to read them.  I may pick them up as a trade later but as for now they are just costing me money.  I never really enjoyed Jupiter’s Circle so it was the easiest book to drop.  Jupiter’s Legacy has come out once so far this year so I feel pretty safe keeping it on my list.  Wytches was ok but I’d rather read it collected 6 issues at a time in a trade rather than go monthly.  Angela: Asgard’s Assassin and Gotham Academy were both pretty good for the first arc but I still lost interest.  Superman / Wonder Woman has been good but it lost a lot of what I liked when they switched artists and it was no longer Tony S. Daniel.

Here are the new books I’m adding:

Physical Books

  • Extraordinary X-Men
  • Uncanny X-Men
  • Old Man Logan

Digital Books

JLA 1 All Covers

  • Justice League: Gods and Monsters
  • Justice League of America

This will have me pulling all of the main X-Men team books with the addition of the Old Man Logan solo book.  I’ve been pulling All-New X-Men for a while now and while I’ve really enjoyed it, have missed out on crucial information by not pulling the other main X-Men Books.  So with all of the Marvel books getting rebooted to number 1 it’s a good time to get in on the ground floor of all three main X-Men books at once.

The only ongoing new DC comic book that I’ll be adding is the new Justice League of America from Bryan Hitch.  I’ve gone through the whole list of new DC books and this new JLA is really the only one that I’m interested in.  I’ll be getting Justice League: Gods and Monsters but it is a limited series and will be ending on July 18th.

    Nice list. I’ve found myself reducing the number of single issues I pull and just waiting for the trade paperback. It’s cheaper and a space saver. Right now, JLA and Old Man Logan are two of my favorite superhero comics. I will say that I can’t wait for Secret Wars to be over. I constantly have this feeling that I should be reading everything so I can get the full experience, which isn’t going to happen because that would be crazy expensive. Give me back the days where I can focus on my three or four favorite characters and ignore everyone else.

      I’ve been reading Saga in trades and even though its cheaper and my brain knows its better to read it 6 issues at a time. But it’s still rough at the end of the trade when you want more story and have to wait out another six months.
