$30 Pull List for 11/2/2011

Not much on the shelves today, picked up my usuals, plus the missed Catwoman #2. Did give me a chance to make up for last week’s budget breaking haul.

Catwoman #2:Pick of the Week Almost makes it perma-pull. Another fun issue full of sex, wit, and violence. You can’t beat that combination. So far, this is the inheritor of Power Girl, Doom Patrol, and Zatanna. The comic that didn’t forget comics are supposed to be entertainment. Sometimes, that means just being fun. You can be fun and tell a story, you can be fun and exciting, you can be fun and dramatic. This is that comic for the new 52.

Avengers Academy #21: Another issue that plays to the series strengths, but this time borrowing plots from Teen Titans, which that series used more than a few times in the past 30 years. This is the first time we’ve seen it in the Academy, so let’s see how it plays out. Fairly straight forward and nothing unexpected, just like a Bob Ross painting. You know what’s coming, but it’s still amusing to see the happy little bush get painted.

GI Joe #7: I got Cover A, or the Fetish Fuel cover. DT calls a ground zero airstrike and the Tuna gets sunk as the Joes try to survive what Cobra tosses at them. Blood makes some kills, but the Joes look they they are done taking it in the face and are ready to punch back.

Route des Maisons Rouges: The China Dolls Maison is set to close due to the Governor's edict to open a new casino, and despite the best effort of all the Maisons, it comes to past. It is discovered that the former mayor, a former mistress of a Maison who found love off the route is still alive and imprisoned by the current mayor and governor. A plan is hatched by the heads of the Maisons with Gill, but Gill is putting his own plan into play without letting anyone else in on it. There is some issues with the placement of text balloons that made figuring out who was speaking an issue at a couple points.

Chopping Block:
Green Arrow #3: The teaser in #2 was a lie, no Black Canary here. Bets thing about this issue? It ends the JT Krul era on Green Arrow. It takes a very special kind of untalent to make me not want to read a Green Arrow comic.

Total Price: $18.35
