The Pull List (6-25-08): I really should be working right now

So real life — or more specifically, the Real Job — has been keeping me busy lately, so this pull list is going to have be even more basic than usual. I mean, ba-sic. But if you think I'm missing something I should absolutely be picking up (or you can't believe I'm getting that comic, because, seriously, what?), let me know in the comments.

But for now — to the list!

Is the Demo a reprint? I have one I got at the con for Becky to sign (~drools on self~), but that was a full year ago now. I'm assuming this week's release must be a reprint. Did they do anything fancy or just straight reprint? Some of my favorite art of all time is in those beautiful beautiful pages.

I forgot to subscribe to comments last time, ignore this comment.

As far as I can tell, the only real difference is the new Vertigo reprint will be a trade paperback instead of the digest-sized book put out by AiT/Planet Lar. I haven't seen anything saying that the extra material that came with the monthlies is going to be included, which is a shame.

Mostly it looks to be a reintroduction of the title before the Demo Vol. 2 limited series starts later this year (supposedly — it's Wood and Cloonan, y'know).

Either way, I'll know for sure once I take a look at it this afternoon!

What, are they making you put in like 36 hours a week now? =)

Jealousy's an ugly thing, Kylito!

So you're not going to give James Robinson's Superman a shot?

(Saying this sight unseen, you understand. Haven't gotten my stuff yet either.)

Y'know, I wasn't planning to, but I've read some good reviews here and there and I have to admit, I'm tempted. It's got Superman throwing a giant metal Frisbee to Krypto IN SPACE, for God's sake!

I was re-reading Geoff Johns and Kurt Busiek's "Up, Up and Away" storyline the other day, and it reminded me of how much I used to love Superman — maybe it's time to give the mainstream title another chance.
