The Weekly Pulls October 26, 2011

Hello and welcome to the first ever episode of "The Weekly Pulls".  I'm Dan, five of you may know me as the guy who writes the brentalfloss comic.  I also spend a not small portion of the time reading funny books.  I thought it might be fun to review them not unlike how Lewis (aka Linkara) does with his series "That's All I'm Saying".  I hope you enjoy it and feel free to leave comments!

Reviewed in this episode: Resurrection Man #2, Catwoman #2, All Star Western #2, Aquaman #2, The Flash #2, Justice League Dark #2, I, Vampire #2, Superman #2, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #3, Angel & Faith #3, Spaceman #1, The Devil is Due in Dreary #1, Stitched #1, The Beauty #1


  1. Resurrection Man #2: I really disliked the first and am glad I didn't pick this one up. I also really like the concept, but the execution failed for me.

    Catwoman #2: I didn't buy this, but my friend did. So I got to read this trash for free. I hated the first one and I hated this one. Everything you said is valid. I just have one thing to add. With Catwoman's style of jumps and flips, don't you think she would pick up a heavy duty sports bra and not purple lingerie? It's a stupid comment for a very stupid book.

    All-Star Western #2: This book is awesome. The KKK-esque masks are really well done. The ending cliffhanger was good. The secondary story was okay, I hope it is going somewhere, otherwise I will be annoyed.

    Aquaman #2: The meta humour is fantastic, can't agree more. The enemies are great and I can't wait to see The Trench. I agree about this title, it's in my top 3 of the entire relaunch. Probably with Detective Comics & All-Star Western and 1 & 2.

    The Flash #2: This book bored me to tears. I have never been a Flash fan and this didn't help. Dropped.

    Superman #2: I also really enjoyed it. Both issues have been really wordy but haven't bogged down, which is a big plus. The concept of the baddie was great, and the mystery is looking quite promising.

    The Beauty sounds interesting. I have no idea if my local store has it, I'll check it out. They are having their 2 year anniversary of Saturday which a big sale. Awesome timing :p

    I didn't read any of the others you reviewed. This was well done, and it's great to hear people's opinions.

  2. Please do it again. Hell, Lewis should just let you do this because you seem more interested in doing this, then he does at the moment. You also pulled more titles, and that's a good thing. Very good job, sir.
