On The Pull 30/10/2013

New comics are due to hit the shelves on Wednesday so here’s a look ahead at some of the books we’ll be picking up this week. To see what’s available at Paradox this week, click here.

Stewart R: One of the things I love so much about this passion for comic books is that you only have to wait 6 days after picking some up and reading through them before you're properly making plans to pick up the next lot. This week's anticipated delivery has some gems contained within and no mistake. Infinity #5 is set for release along with Avengers #22 and I'm still of the opinion currently that this is one of the best events Marvel has managed to put out in many a year. The only concern that I really have with it is if Jonathan Hickman can see it through to the very end without the impetus dropping, leaving us with a satisfying conclusion that feels weighty and means something. Issue #5 should hopefully give us an indication of where things might wind up in that regard. I'm certainly glad to see Wild Blue Yonder #3 turn up on my list as I made a quick scan through previous months' lists to make sure that I hadn't missed the next chapter of what, after only two issues, was proving to be an interesting and thrilling tale of cat-and-mouse espionage and sky battles. At New York Comic Con, Dan Slott was clearly stating that things really start to shift in the world of Otto Octavius masquerading as Peter Parker through #20 and #21 of Superior Spider-Man and truth be told, he's one writer who seems to deliver on his promises every single time! Sitting rather precariously on my pull-list this week is True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys and though I will be picking up #5 tomorrow, there is just something about this series that hasn't felt right to me and I've not connected to many of the characters as perhaps readers should and are. I shall have to see if that changes this week!

Matt C: Without comment, I give to you my pull-list this week:

True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys #5
Prophet #40
Saga #15
Sex #8
Avengers #22
Infinity #5
Kick-Ass 3 #4
Wild Blue Yonder #3

Okay, maybe a little comment. Some faves in there in the form of Fabulous Killjoys #5, Saga #15 and Avengers #22, a welcome return for Wild Blue Yonder, more head-scratching no doubt following Prophet #40, and as Stew suggested above, maybe some indication of whether or not the conclusion of Infinity next month will be worth the time and effort we've invested in it so far!
