AVATAR PRESS
Anna Mercury #5 (of 5)(Felipe Massafera Painted Cover), $3.99
Doktor Sleepless #11 (Raulo Caceres Wrap Cover), $3.99
No Hero #3 (of 7)(Juan Jose Ryp Regular Cover), $3.99

What a great way to start off the weekly Pull list, a beautiful Chunk of Warren Ellis Goodness. No, I don’t read Gravel.

BOOM! STUDIOS
Hexed #1 (of 4)(Cover B Joe Pekar), $3.99

Hexed Preview
1. It’s Boom! Studios and I’ve at least liked everything I’ve picked up from them. 2. A magical realism Genre bender about a thief who uses Occult powers. It’s worth at lest giving a first issue try.

CARTOON BOOKS
Rasl TP Vol 1 Drift, $13.00

RASL Preview
I like Jeff Smith, but I like him in heavy doses. It’s like a bowl of ice cream. You take time to digest after you consume and just reflect back on how tasty it is. Monthly, it’s like a bag of chips. They’re good but with everything else you’re consuming it kind of just becomes filler.

DARK HORSE
Buffy The Vampire Slayer #21 (Season 8)(Jo Chen Regular Cover), $2.99

DC COMICS
El Diablo #5 (of 6), $2.99
Haunted Tank #2 (of 5), $2.99

IMAGE COMICS
Archibald Chases The Dragon (One Shot), $3.50
Broken Trinity Angelus (One Shot)(Cover A Brian Stelfreeze), $2.99

Archibald Preview
Broken Trinity Angelus Preview
Archibald is one of those books I’ve want to pick up but keep putting back. Throw in some oriental mysticism and a title that’s a drug reference and I’m there.
And Top Cow is trying to win you over I’m going to help them. Even if, my choice for the Pilot Season didn’t win.

MARVEL COMICS
Dead Of Night Featuring Werewolf By Night #1 (of 4), $3.99
Invincible Iron Man #9 (Dark Reign Tie-In), $2.99
Punisher #1 (Mike McKone Target Norman Osborn Cover)(Dark Reign Tie-In), $3.99

Dead of Night Featuring Werewolf By Night Preview
Punisher Preview
Matt is really excited about the Werewolf by Night book. Maybe we can get him to write a review for here. What do you say, Matt? But could they make the title a little longer? Hopefully they’ll have a ‘Giant Size Dead of Night Featuring Werewolf by Night Annual 2009′
Punisher 1, I wasn’t going to pick up until they gave the Dark Reign reveal. Now I’m interested. And seriously, I have a Dark Reign Illness, seriously. I picked up Ms. Marvel today for God sakes!

ONI PRESS
Blue Monday Thieves Like Us #1 (of 5), $3.50

Blue Monday Thieves Like Us Interview & Preview Pages CBR gets all the cool stuff.
Read Blue Monday because it’s a really good book with fantastic art and a great story. Not because I have a huge fanboy crush on Chynna, really.

RADICAL PUBLISHING
Shrapnel #1 (of 5)(Cover A Clint Langley), $1.99

Shrapnel Preview
I keep wanting Radical to put something out there that’s going to knock my socks off, but most likely it will be more style over substance. Put out a low priced no overprint first issue so we can sell the film script with the line ‘sold out first issue.’ Then crank out issues with an unsatisfactory ending for the series. But here’s hoping!
