The Pull List (8/14/13): X-Palooza, and Vaughan's latest (and greatest) continues

Posted By on Wed, Aug 14, 2013 at 10:24 AM

Before we get into this week's newest batch of comics, we'd like to extend well wishes for scribe and artist Mike Grell, the man who revitalized Green Arrow. Grell is currently in the hospital with cellulitis and has been updating fans and friends about his condition through social media.

It's X-Palooza 2013 this week as several of Marvel's X-Men books have new issues and collected editions, including Astonishing X-Men, First X-Men, Ultimate Comics X-Men, Uncanny X-Force, Uncanny X-Men, Wolverine and Wolverine and the X-Men. Of course, we're coming up on the next event for everyone's favorite mutants, Battle of the Atom, so a push is understood. The first issue of the event is coming Sept. 4.

This week's Title You Can't Miss continually surprises and delights me in ways only superstar writer Brian K. Vaughan can. Saga is probably my favorite running series right now, with Fiona Staples' art solidifying the book's place as a sure classic in years to come. Now, the book has finally returned from its break after the 12th issue.

The space opera/fantasy may have made headlines months ago over some controversial panels (or images within a screen of a panel), but that doesn't stop it from continuing to be a vast success for Image. For those who recently finished the second paperback, now's a good time to jump back aboard this ship.

Now, on to the rest of the new comics ...
