Pull List Thoughts: 1/16/13 Comics

As I was reading my comics from the week of January 16, I kept noticing certain panels that spoke to me in some way. Here are my (not so good) photos and commentary.

What I’m looking forward to on New Comics Wednesday!

Just in the nick of time, here’s a quick look at some titles out today that I’m looking forward to reading.

CAPTAIN MARVEL #2: I enjoyed issue one well enough, despite the art. I’m interested to see where DeConnick takes us with Carol.

DAREDEVIL #17: Always a great read. I just found out that Chris Samnee (it’s pronounced Sahm-nee, kids–I just found that out today, too) is the new ongoing artist since Paolo Rivera has moved on to new things (which is too bad–no knock against Samnee, I just prefer Rivera’s work on DD).

EXTERMINATION #3: This title is on the bubble for me, but it improved from issue 1 to issue 2, so I hope that trend continues.

HARBINGER #3: This is a new addition to my Pull List (thanks Lee!).

MICHAEL AVON OEMING’S THE VICTORIES #1: So looking forward to reading this, despite the fact that the official title includes the creator’s name. :D

REVIVAL #2: Issue 1 started out strong and I hope the sophomore issue continues that.

SAGA #6: Again, just because it’s soooo good.

SHADE #11: Ditto. And Frazer Irving’s art.

WONDER WOMAN #12: I hear there’s a cool surprise at the end. Don’t spoil it for me Internet!
