Happy New comic book day nerds! Welcome to the top ten picks of the week from your friends over at The Wednesday Pull List! We strive to be the "Oprah's Book Club" of the comic book world so share this around!
1. Nightwing #79
LEAPING INTO THE LIGHT, PART 2
Dick Grayson has inherited Alfred’s fortune, a puppy, and a whole lot of questions. Who is Mayor Zucco, and what is her relation to the man who murdered Dick’s parents? What sinister plans does Blockbuster have for Blüdhaven? What kind of dog food is best for a three-legged puppy? To answer these questions, Dick’s going to need a little help from his friends—past and present.
2. Radiant Black #3
Okay, that's it. Nathan's getting down to business today: he's finally working on his novel. All he needs is some solitary writing time-no "helpful" parents, no superhero social media, and definitely no alien voices beaming an unintelligible language into his brain. That's not too much to ask for, right?
3. Ultramega #2
Rising out of the carnage of our debut issue, a new hero emerges to beatdown the kaiju scum! Fists fly and blood is spilled.
Fight monsters. Stand with humanity. Stand with the ULTRAMEGA!
4. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #116
It's the battle of the bands... of the century! As Jennika decides whether she weighs harmony over revenge, a musical brawl of epic proportions against Bebop and Rocksteady will have major ramifications on time itself!
5. Power Rangers #6
The New Power Rangers have formed an uneasy alliance with Lord Drakkon...but now must trust Astronema and Ecliptor in order to survive.
But do the would-be Princess of Evil and her mentor have something else planned for their new allies?
6. The Amazing Spider-Man #64
KING'S RANSOM, PART TWO
Tombstone and Robbie are at each other’s throats and much of Spider-Man’s life is collateral damage. Does this have anything to do with Mayor Kingpin’s moves of late? Short answer—yes.
7. The Flash #769
BLINK OF AN EYE, CHAPTER TWO
After an accident pushes Wally West into the time stream, the former Kid Flash lands in the body of his onetime partner, Impulse. Now sprinting through the 30th century side by side with the mysterious (and, yeah, ridiculous) Gold Beetle, Wally must uncover what’s causing the destructive explosions that keep propelling him through time and the bodies of other speedsters.
8. Justice League #60
PRISMS, PART TWO / DANGEROUS THINGS
Superman, Batman, Green Arrow, Black Canary, Aquaman, and Hawkgirl join forces with Black Adam to fight an all-new world conqueror! But how do they stop the unstoppable power known as Brutus? Enter new mega-power sensation Naomi, who comes face to face with the League and brings along Queen Hippolyta of the Amazons for a blockbuster battle for the ages—with a last-page cliffhanger that will leave everyone guessing what’s next!
And in the backup tale, the new Justice League meets the new Justice League Dark, and the demon Etrigan calls the team to action—but Batman has other plans. This team needs a leader, but what twisted secret prevents Zatanna from stepping forward? Plus, Ragman makes a startling discovery—one that may cost his life!
9. Way of X #1
WAY OF X
THE WAY TO THE FUTURE OF X! Mutantkind has built a new Eden...but there are serpents in this garden. Some mutants struggle to fit in. Some mutants turn to violence and death. And the children whisper of the Patchwork Man, singing in their hearts... Only one mutant senses the looming shadows. Snared by questions of death, law and love, only NIGHTCRAWLER can fight for the soul of Krakoa. Only he—and the curious crew he assembles (including fan-favorites Dr. Nemesis, Pixie, and Blink)—can help mutants defeat their inner-darkness and find a new way to live. This is the WAY OF X. Simon Spurrier (X-MEN: LEGACY) and Bob Quinn (CAPTAIN AMERICA) push the frontiers of Krakoa in this unmissable entry into the bold new REIGN OF X.
10. Haha #4
"GUSTAV IN THE WORLD OF FLOATING OBJECTS"
A wise clown once said that everything floats... and he was right.
The comic book with a literally laughable title drifts into the big, blue sky with an issue hand-painted by watercolorist PATRICK HORVATH.
