The Pull List, 24 August 2011

My name is Jet Wolf, and I’m addicted to comic books. Every week since 1987 I’ve had comics pulled and waiting to fall into my eager hands. It’s a practice that’s survived multiple comic shops, a cross-country move, and the entire 1990s. I’ve always loved talking about them after reading, first boring friends too polite to tell me they didn’t care, then babbling with my future husband in the proto-internet, and finally spreading my opinions […]

Rogue (fuck yeah!) #16

When I picked up my first X-Men comic back in the 80s, I quickly realized one thing: Rogue is bloody awesome. It is truth. It is law.

The X-Men emerge from a lengthy, gruelingly brutal battle with other-dimensional invading fuckwits. They’re hurt, but happy. The day is won! <Claremont> But what price victory?! </Claremont> Gambit’s […]

Exit, Mike Carey, Stage Left.

Just as I finish up my Rogue (fuck yeah!) for the week, I see the next announcement from Marvel on the post-Schism state of the X-Men. It’s a teaser for the new line-up for X-Men Legacy! Yay! Rogue’s front and center! Yay! Mike Carey’s final arc begins here! Ya– WUT. I’ve spent no small amount of time in the past few years proclaiming Mike Carey the second coming of Claremont (meant in all the good […]

Every Tuesday I will share with you a moment, a panel, a scene, that proves it. Because: Rogue. FUCK YEAH. In the wake of M-Day, mutants are seriously boned. There’s less than 200 left in the world and Cyclops is freaking the fuck out. He offers amnesty to […]

Breaking the Bat(girl?)

Tonight in conversation with Mike, Amy and Scott, a thought occurred to me. Secret Six ended with Bane returned to his path of violence against Batman. His latest plan hinges not on assaulting Batman himself but destroying the Batfamily. The Robins, Huntress, Azrael and Batgirl are all specifically named. There’s even pictures of each, though Batgirl is, of course, Stephanie Brown. Gail Simone (writer of Secret Six) said today on Twitter: “Everything that is in […]
