On The Pull 30/09/2015

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.

Kenny J: This is the calm before the storm. With Secret Wars raging over at Marvel, for the moment my pull has been reduced significantly. Of course, that is all set to change come October with the 'All-New All-Different' line, but this week I’ll be taking a look at just two titles from the publisher, E Is For Extinction #4 - which I’ve thoroughly enjoyed - and Captain America: White #2. Although delayed by eight years, that last title has made me realise just how much I like straight up red, white and blue Captain America stories. I never thought I would be picking up a monthly Archie comic but the combination Mark Waid’s funny, touching and clever writing and Fiona Staples gorgeous art has me looking forward to my monthly dose of Riverdale set adventures. Rounding up the small but quality week is Sex #24 from Image. This has been a book that has delivered an intriguing and sometimes disturbing story without much fanfare. Let’s hope it keeps this going as it enters its third year.

Matt C: As with Kenny, my pull this week is unnervingly thin. I should enjoy the odd respite amongst the usual deluge of books but having two weeks on the trot where I'm only picking up four or less titles means that I'm probably due a wallet-busting week in the very near future. I know it probably all works out evenly eventually but those times when you're looking at twelve plus books on a Wednesday can be a bit of a shock to the system (not to mention the bank account). Anyway, ignoring financial griping, I to will also be getting Captain America: White #2 and Sex #24, with the really-rather-excellent-why-aren't-you-buying-it Providence #5 from Avatar rounding things off. Now, do I dare take a peak at what's due in next Wednesday...
