It's new comics day, and with Marvel in the middle of it's reboot launch, there's a lot of new number ones coming out again this week. Because of that, I'll be making some adjustments to my pull list at the local comic shop, and I thought I'd post about what's getting added, what's getting dropped and why. I think I'll do a series of these, since I expect more adds and drops to be happening over the next few months. Without further ado:
All-New Wolverine #1--I have to admit, the only character in the Marvel universe I find more boring than Wolverine is Iron Man. In fact, the only run of Wolverine I own is the Guggenheim and Ramos run during Civil Was (which I loved). But X-23? She's a character I've always been interested in learning more about, but I never caught one of her series from the beginning. Now's my chance.
Black Magick #1--Greg Rucka and Nicola Scott? that's enough to get me to check out a book right there. The book is about a robbery/homicide detective who also happens to be a witch. Sold.
Web Warriors #1--As a lifelong Spidey fan, I am compelled to give almost all Spider-related titles at least a shot to impress me. The Spider-Verse version of this series was horrendous, so this book has one issue to impress me. I love Anya Coarazon as a character, and I hope she gets some time to shine in this new series.
Teen Titans #13--I have given this book 12 issues to impress me--it has not. With a roster or great characters like Teen Titans has, it's kind of amazing this book manages to be so boring. Every time I think it's about turn a corner, it just keeps meandering.
Secret Wars #7--If you listened to my rant at the end of Secret Identity #692, the you know I cancelled the rest of the Summer Reading Project on Secret Wars. Not only has this series been completely underwhelming and overly complicated, but it's been ridiculously late as well. If Marvel doesn't care about finishing Secret Wars before their universe is rebooted, why should I care about reading it?
