DC Pull List - Week of May 13th, 2015

Just got back from the local comic book store with a bag full of leftover Free Comic Book Day goodies and was thinking how lucky I was to live in a town that still has a Comic Book store. I'm going to throw up a link for their Facebook page just in case anybody lives in the area and wants to check them out.  They have a good atmosphere, and while their not huge, the friendly faces more then make up for the lack of space.  

Hardcover Highlight was a toss up between the Green Lantern book and the Fables Deluxe.  I went with Fables in the end because I'm all ready cover Green Lantern in the trades and wanted to keep things fresh. 


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.

And hey, if you like what I'm doing tell your friends!  Give me a link, name drop me, plus 1 the posts on Google+ - it all helps.  And if you REALLY like me, (doubtful), then follow me on Twitter @TiberiusTaylor or just click this LINK.  Also, I started a Facebook group for those of us who aren't in to Twitter.  Thanks to everyone who does read, it means a lot - here's a bonus image to get you all fired up!

Forever Evil

This collects the 7 issue New 52 mini-series, if that makes you cringe then read no further.  Like most DC mini and maxi events the whole story is told not only in the main book, but also in a series of tie-ins, spin-offs and companions.  I like the epic nature of the DC events but they can sometimes get a little...unfriendly, I guess, for lack of a better term.  Sometimes if you haven't read all, or at least some, of the companion books the main series can feel like there's holes in it. That being said, if you do get the whole picture, their events are fantastic, so, I'm looking forward to this.  The idea that the Crime Syndicate murders the Justice League and takes over sounds like it will probably get explained away at some point but it should still be entertaining while it's happening.  Oh, it's also written by Geoff Johns, which is always a good thing in my books.

Green Lantern Vol. 5: Test Of Wills

Not much to say about this one - it's New 52 Green Lantern goodness. I've read the first 12 or 13 issues and quite enjoyed them. GL is one of the few books that doesn't feel like it changed much after the events of Flashpoint gave us the New 52. There's always been a lot going on in the GL books and lots of characters to follow so it's nice that it stayed familiar.  So, ya....go get on reading some Green Lantern, I guess.  Or something.
