My Weekly Pull #1

J and I get a lot of comics each week, and I thought this would be a great way to share! Comics are normally released every Wednesday, but we might not be able to pick them up until the weekend. The store closes at 8:30, which is crazy, so we usually go when we have more time to look around. Thankfully, the comic book store already knows what comics we want pulled for the week, so they'll be in our box when we get there. If there are special variant editions we would like, we just call ahead and have them pull those, too.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Universe #15 
Venom #156
All-New Guardians Of The Galaxy #12

I'm really excited to read the All-New Guardians Of The Galaxy! Someone new is joining the team, which is why you see all of the random people on the cover. I'm not sure why someone new is being added... I'm a few issues behind on this one. 😔

Spider-Gwen #25 

Incredible Hulk #709

Invincible Iron Man #593

Mighty Thor #700

Spider-Gwen, Incredible Hulk, Invincible Iron Man and Mighty Thor are not currently on our pull list, but they are comics we've been wanting to read. We went ahead and got the issues for this week because they are doing the Lenticular Homage and the How-to-Draw variants. The lenticular variants are holographic and the images move on the cover. It shows both the cover for the current issue, as well as an older, random comic behind it. (I hope I'm explaining that correctly!) My son loves it. J really likes the Hot-to-Draw variants, which my son also loves, hah.

If you would like to see what other comics were released this week, we use Comic List. It will also show you the comics and covers being released next week so you can plan ahead! It helps to know what you want ahead of time, if you want specific variants. 

Once we pick up our comics for this week, I will post an actual picture of what we received. I'll edit this post and add it to the bottom. If you would like to participate in this, please leave a link in the comments so I can check it out! 

(Oh, if you're unfamiliar with comic books, don't be discouraged by the high issue numbers. Marvel comics just switched to Legacy numbering, which is why things are a little confusing. It's the number for the series as a whole, and maybe not the current ongoing story. The Legacy issues will continue the previous story, but supposedly will also serve as a starting point for new readers. Again, I might not be the best person to explain this, but Google is a good friend!)

Edit: An actual picture of my comics for the week!

    1. I know! It's a big milestone! Which Guardians were you reading? I know there are a few. I also know that some of the individual characters have their own comics... like Rocket, Drax, Gamora, and I think Groot. There are too many comics for me to keep up with! I've tried to limit myself to a few, but it's hard.

    1. Marvel Unlimited? Is that with Amazon? I'm still new to this, so I know very little, lol. I've barely wrapped my head around the basics.

    1. It's so fun! Complicated and confusing, but fun! It's nice being able to switch between books and comics. I love that comics are a quick read, but are still part of a larger story. I only have to wait a month between issues instead of the year (or longer) between books, so that's different. It's just hard to compete with a good book. :)
