DC Pull List - Week of 01/04

If I was writing about the hardcovers I would definitely be highlighting Absolute Green Arrow by Kevin Smith.  I've always wanted to have his run on Green Arrow but haven't really felt like paying $60-70 a trade for the now out-of-print initial releases.  The price tag attached to the Absolute edition IS pretty hefty, (sitting at a cool $100), but at least that's hardcover, all of the issues that Smith wrote and probably every extra sketch or note that was penned while the creators worked on this originally. Getting these issues in trade would probably cost at least $100 if not way, way more and that's IF you were lucky enough to find used copies for cheap, (cheap being a relative $20-40).

All of this information is suggested.  Sometimes books get delayed, sometimes they get cancelled all together. Most of the time the trades will be available.  Prices are also suggested and subject to change at the discretion of the shop owner or the publisher themselves. 

So, without further adieu and absolutely no fanfare, we begin!

DC Comics - Zero Year 

Haven't read the Zero Year storyline yet, (so no spoilers!), but it's good to know that when I do get those trades that I can add this one alongside.  This should probably read Zero Year - The Companion but for some reason they didn't label it as such.  These stories are all extra material, so to speak.  It details things that were going on with other heroes, (Green Arrow and Lantern, Superman, Flash etc.), while Batman was stepping up to get the power back in Gotham and shut down an out of control Riddler.  Some people don't like companions, and I understand why because they can sometimes add nothing that is necessary to know, but I enjoy getting vignettes that illuminate what else was going on in the larger DC Universe.

New Teen Titans Vol. 2

For those of you who didn't get the Omnibus' that were released in the past couple years, (I did and the first two are glorious; didn't get the third, heard there was a lot of skipped material - boo!), or for people who don't like reading massive tomes, DC is reprinting the classic Wolfman/Perez Teen Titans in convenient paperback format.  There was some great storytelling going on here and the art is detailed, kinetic and bursting with image yet remains clean and easy to look at.  Everybody who's in to costumed antics should check this out.  It's great.    

SRP: $19.99

Wonder Woman Vol. 5: Flesh

New round of new 52 Wonder Woman.  That's pretty much all that can be said, or at least all that can be said by me.  Guess what?  Haven't read it.  I know, surprising.  Guess what?  I will one day which I can only imagine comes as a gigantic shock.
