The Pull List (7-10-08): Diana Prince should change her name to Molly Hatchet

Seriously, doesn't the cover to Wonder Woman #22 instantly make "Immigrant Song" start playing in your head? Let's crank it, throw the horns and go ... to the list!

Getting ...

Booster Gold #1000000: But seriously, can we stop being cute with the numbering?

Guardians of the Galaxy #3: Some decently mysterious goings-on, high concepts and deep space action all come together in what's become my favorite team book.

Justice Society of America #17: This should really be under the "Maybe" heading. Geoff Johns' revisiting of the Kingdom Come concept is getting tiresome, but since I still enjoy the book it'll probably become a title I pick up in trade instead.

Wonder Woman #22: Gail Simone continues to quietly reinvent the character and shows why it's worth remembering that Wonder Woman is essentially a creature of magic.

Maybe ...

BPRD: The Warning #1 (of 5): Actually an almost definite sure-thing, probably taking the place of Justice Society of America. Don't be fooled by the first-issue numbering, though. This story has been building (brilliantly) in other BPRD minis for a while now, and while you can most likely pick it up without having read the other stories first, you'll really just be cheating yourself out of the growing tension as pieces fall into place.

I Kill Giants #1 (of 7): This sounds like an interesting story about that fragile time known as childhood, and how we cope with our monsters as best we can. The art also looks as if it will be well-suited to the tone of the story, so I'll be sure to give this a look in the shop.

Trading up ...
(Titles I either am, or will be, picking up in trade)

Criminal Vol. 3: Dead and Dying

Recommended ...

Comic Foundry Magazine #3: Whether you're a serious comics fan or you're just starting to give them a try, this is the best magazine about comic books on the stands. Thoughtful, informative, fun and generally a good mix of the dense and airy, Comic Foundry does an excellent job of delivering on the message that comics are for everyone. Read it.
