Comic Book Pull List: August 15th
Gerry Duggn’s second issue of Infinity Wars keeps the action ramped up to ten this week. The twist of Gamora killing her father, Thanos and taking his place at the big bag hunting the Infinity Stones works a lot better than first thought. This is the first Marvel event I’ve been genuinely excited about since Hickman’s Secret Wars. Let’s hope he can break the Marvel curse and deliver a satisfying ending to the whole thing.
In other issues, the X-Men’s Extermination event kicked off this week. A couple of deaths and a big villain reveal is classic X-Men shenanigans. I’m loving it. Spider-geddon also launched with week with an Edge of Spider-geddon prelude issue. The new Tony Stark: Iron Man has finally got my attention, playing up some social commentary with A.I. replace race and gender in the discussion. Bravo. A new Luke Cage comic follows last months Jessica Jones as a ‘digital first’ release, but it doesn’t come close to being as good as the former. Still, Cage is one of my favorite characters (thanx to Bendis), so stick around to see what happens.
