Conspirator Brock's Pull List for 11/23/11

For all of the curious people out there wondering what I like to read week to week here is a list of the titles I am going to be picking up for the week of 11/23/11:

(Note: I have included deep links for some titles if you wish to support Comics Conspiracy when you buy digital comics.)

01. All Star Western #3 DC
02. Annihilators: Earthfall #3 of 4 Marvel
03. Aquaman #3 DC
04. Batman: The Dark Knight #3 DC
05. Blackhawks #3 DC
06. Captain America & Bucky #624 Marvel
07. DMZ #71 Vertigo
08. Flash #3 DC
09. Green Lantern: New Guardians #3 DC
10. Justice League Dark #3 DC
11. The Shade #2 of 12 DC
12. Superman #3 DC
13. The Unwritten #31.5 Vertigo
14. Voodoo #3 DC

We are all ready through November and DC is still going strong with their new rejiggered universe. This last week of number three's is overall a good read week because no title gets my overall attention due to the fact that all of the titles I pick up are interesting reads. I will pay a little more attention to Justice League Dark and Aquaman, but I like a lot of the titles from week equally.

Calli got Voodoo this week and I'm interested to see if she likes the Green Lantern (Kyle Rayner) appearance that happens in it. I'll let you know.

My pull list seems to be getting smaller, but that is okay; I'm trimming out the garbage. For example, with Captain America & Bucky this week I noticed an ad in the back for a new creative team to start on the book with issue #625. All I could think about after seeing that was the fact that this book is now on my chopping block because I don't know if I'm going to like the new creative team and/or direction they are going to take the book. If this title goes though it will free up space for me to try something else; maybe Winter Soldier.
I know I talk a lot of Marvel hate here and on the podcast, but they make it hard not to. Most of what has come out of Marvel in the past few years has been less than readable and with all the turbulent news coming from the Bullpen as of late I'm not liking the direction Marvel is taking as a business or as universe. I'm still a hopeful Marvel fan wanting to read good stories about characters I like by creators that are not over worked or underpaid. Sounds like a long shot I know, but I can only be what I've been...a comic book fan left waiting.

Remember you can now find these titles and more in digital format at our Comics Conspiracy - Comixology Storefront.

As usual I'll be talking comics on The Comic Conspiracy, and on the Geekbox Forums. Now get out there and enjoy some good old fashioned comic book reading.
