Pull List for February 13, 2019

From left to right, back to front: Daredevil #1, Star Wars: Age of Republic – Anakin Skywalker #1, The Amazing Spider-Man #14, and Deadpool #9

Every Wednes­day, all-new com­ic books hit the shelves with orig­i­nal sto­ries to be engrossed in, and new art to be fas­ci­nat­ed by. This is my week­ly write-up where I share what com­ic books I read last week, and my pull list of comics for this week.

What I read last week

  • Dare­dev­il #1 – Chip Zdark­sky didn’t dis­ap­point with the first issue of this new Dare­dev­il run. It felt like an excel­lent start­ing point for new read­ers, and I’m inter­est­ed to see where he takes the char­ac­ter. Mar­co Checchetto’s art is fan­tas­tic and feels like the per­fect pair­ing for this book.
  • The Amaz­ing Spi­der-Man #14 – I’m not a fan of Bachalo’s art in this one. Felt like a com­plete depar­ture from the styles Ott­ley and Ramos had estab­lished ear­li­er in the series. Unfor­tu­nate­ly, I may drop this since I haven’t been as inter­est­ed in the past few issues.
  • Star Wars: Age of Repub­lic – Anakin Sky­walk­er #1 – I’m so hap­py we get sto­ries like this. The issue cer­tain­ly feels like an episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. While George Lucas (and Hay­den Christensen’s per­for­mance) made Anakin seem like a petu­lant child, sto­ries like this show what I believe to be the true Anakin: a man with a strong moral com­pass and convictions.

Favorite of the week: Star Wars: Age of Repub­lic – Anakin Sky­walk­er #1

Picking up this week

  • The Amaz­ing Spi­der-Man #15 – If I don’t like this one, I may drop it and wait for the next arc. Like I said above, I’m not a fan of this new artist either.
  • Cap­tain Mar­vel #2 – Kel­ly Thomp­son wrote a killer first issue, and I’ve been wait­ing anx­ious­ly to read the next one.
  • Obliv­ion Song #12 – Con­clu­sion to the arc! Holy moly this sto­ry has been a roller­coast­er, and I’ve had that weird feel­ing in my stom­ach the whole time (in a good way!). I’m look­ing for­ward to how Robert Kirk­man wraps up the sea­son finale” of this book, and what will be next for these awe­some characters.
