My pull list… 05/25/10

My pull list for May 25th, 2010

Last week brought us the first issue of the revamped Avengers series from Marvel with Brian Michael Bendis and John Romita Jr. on board. And this week we get our first issue of The Secret Avengers from writer Ed Brubaker and artist Mike Deodato. Brubaker has been writing the superb Captain America series for some time now and Mike Deodato was last seen handling the pencils for Dark Avengers, this should prove to be a great creative team and I’m really looking forward to seeing how Brubaker handles Steve Rogers in a non-Captain America role.

Other highlights for this week; Amazing Spider-Man continues the recent storyline featuring the return of the Lizard which Chris Bachallo providing art; X-Force brings us the latest chapter of the so-far thrilling “Second Coming” crossover; Nick Fury continues his crusade agains the forces of HYDRA and Leviathan in Secret Warriors and Bruce Wayne takes one step closer to returning in Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne.

And for those of you with deep pockets, the Wednesday Comics hardcover collection comes out this week as well. Wednesday Comics was one of my reading highlights from last year as DC Comics attempted to recreate the golden age of Sunday comics. The series was published in 14″ x 20″ broadsheet format, similar to newspaper comics pages of the past. Each issue featured 15 pages, with a different story by a different creative team on each. By far the biggest highlight from this series for me was Paul Pope’s take on Adam Strange, and I can only imagine how wonderful that artwork will look reprinted in this oversized hardcover.
