Pull List: Comics Coming Out 12/5/12

By / 12.05.12

And what, pray tell, is arriving on shelves on the fifth shopping day of Christmas? A lot of minis and some reviews, of DC’s Before Watchmen books this week and Detective Comics #15.

  • DC launches its next Freedom Fighters mini, The Human Bomb, and wraps up GI Combat as a going concern. It also has more Animal Man, Swamp Thing, Dial H, and Earth 2, as well as more of the Comedian and Minutemen minis.
  • Marvel rolls out Avengers and Thunderbolts as part of Marvel NOW!, launches a Wolverine MAX book, and has more Hawkeye and All-New X-Men, a book Marvel seems to be publishing pretty much weekly at this point. Hey, we’re not complaining, it’s pretty fun stuff.
  • Image debuts I Love Trouble, Blackacre, and mini The Legend of Luther Strode, and has more Creator Owned Heroes, Great Pacific, and Storm Dogs.
  • Dark Horse debuts Hellboy In Hell and has more Colder, as well as another Star Wars two-parter.
  • IDW launches Magic: The Gathering: Path of Vengeance and wraps up The Pound: Ghoul’s Night Out.
  • And Boom! has more Hypernaturals.

Now, about those reviews…

Before Watchmen: Minutemen #5

Minutemen has always been the centerpiece of the Before Watchmen minis, and this issue is no exception. Essentially it expands on why Night Owl was driven to quit, which has some very dark reasons behind it. This keeps up the quality and ends on one very nasty cliffhanger; Darwyn Cooke is doing some spectacular work in both writing and art here.

Before Watchmen: Comedian #4

This book, meanwhile, is growing on me. The first few issues were set-up, to some degree, but Azzarello has slowly been building to a disturbing atmosphere; he’s tying it to music of the era in various ways and it starts getting creepy as he triggers those songs in your head. J.G. Jones largely keeps the art realistic, making it a vivid contrast to the writing.

Detective Comics #15

You can take or leave the ongoing plot threads John Layman is putting into the book; Emperor Penguin is a bit of a silly villain and he’s not going to be around for long once Cobblepot realizes what’s up. But this book is worth picking up for the plot about Clayface, who gets his heart broken. Artwise, Jason Fabok does solid work, and he knows his Batman history: One very funny moment features him sneaking in a Batman dressed as one of the cheesy action figures from the Batman: The Animated Series era. It’s nothing classic, but decent, fun comics.

Now, the releases!
