Pull List for 10/8/08

Action Comics #870 - This is the final issue of the fantastic Brainiac arc and I can't wait to see how Johns is going to resolve this story with this issue. Now even though I have enjoyed this story this is the last issue of Action Comics I am picking up because after this issue the Action Comics, Superman, and Supergirl are going to be telling same story. And my wallet is not big enough to pick up two additional titles but this wont take away from my enjoyment of this issue.

Avengers/Invaders #5 - I have been enjoying this mini-series. It is just a shame that this series seems to be playing second fiddle to Final Crisis and Secret Invasion. I am expecting a great interaction between present and past Bucky and how the Bucky from the past reacts to his future self being Captain America.

Green Lantern #35 - This is another Johns title that is having the closing issue for the story arc. I have been surprised that I have enjoyed this Secret Origin arc since I already new Hal's origin. Johns has used this retelling of Hal's origin to add some key characters that play a role for the Red and Black Lanterns that just build on my anticipation of the upcoming "Blackest Night" event.

Green Lantern Corps #29 - With this issue I am official adding GLC to my pull list. I have only been getting this title on a sporadic basis before now but since I just can't wait for "Blackest Night" I am getting anything that builds up to that event. Also I am interested to see what Tomasi is going to do with Star Sapphire Corps.

Invincible Iron Man #6 - While Fraction started off strong in this new title he has quickly fallen to making Invincible Iron Man a typical superhero comic. I am still on the fence whether to drop this title or not since Iron Man has been part of my top three favorite Marvel characters with Spider-man and Captain America. It doesn't make my decision any easier that this is the only Iron Man title on the market with Iron Man Director of SHIELD being replaced with a War Machine title.
