My Weekly Pull [21]

My Weekly Pull is something I do every Wednesday to show which comics I had pulled for me that week! If you're into comics, or you're looking to start, please join me! If you decide to do your own post, leave a link in the comments. I would love to stop by and check it out!

Hunt for Wolverine: Mystery in Madripoor #1 (of 4) by Charles Soule, Jim Zub, David Marquez, Chris Bachalo
Legion #5 (of 5) by Peter Milligan, Wilfredo Torres, Javier Rodriguez
Moon Knight #195 by Max Bemis, Ty Templeton, Greg Smallwood (Deadpool Variant)
Old Man Hawkeye #5 (of 12) by Ethan Sacks, Marco Checchetto

My pull list is going to start looking a lot smaller! I've decided to stop including the comics Jacob and I get together each week, and instead focus only on the comics I'm reading. I've decided to do this for a lot of reasons: a) time commitment, b) I'm not actually reading some of them right now (but I might in the future), and c) it's hard for me to respond to questions about comics I haven't actually read yet.

This week we're continuing with Hunt for Wolverine from a different perspective. I finally read the first issue (!!!) and now know that there are different teams looking for Wolverine, so these different mini series are the different groups that are out looking. I love how it's pulling in a lot of different characters! Daredevil, Iron Man, Spider-Man, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, etc. This issue is going to focus on a group of women that are looking for him, like Rogue and Storm. 

Legion is on its last issue and I don't know what the flark is going on. I think I've been inside his head for too long, and there is some weirdness going on (if that cover is any indication). 

I love the Deadpool variant for Moon Knight! His speech bubble says, "How in the world am I supposed to keep this outfit clean?!" 🤣 It's a very Deadpool thing to say from a Moon Knight perspective.

As for Old Man Hawkeye...it's getting dark. I'm actually hesitant about reading this newest issue. It might make or break the series for me, to be honest. I've always loved Hawkeye, especially the Kate Bishop version, but I don't know if I can stick with this series for seven more issues. 

Reading any new comics this week? Old?

  1. I guess I'm not up on Wolverine so I don't know about the Hunt for him, but it sounds good! :) And Hawkeye I hope they don't make TOO dark- I think he works a little better with a lighter tone, but I could be wrong.

    1. Sooo… I don't want to give too much away, so I'll give you the basics that were available to everyone from the start. Logan died... but when does that guy ever stay dead? However, we've no idea where he is or how he disappeared. We don't even know if he's technically alive, because his body could have been stolen. Even dead, his genes and mutation could do some serious damage in the wrong hands.


      Hunt for Wolverine is being written by different people, and there are different mini series that you can follow. Each one contains a different group looking for Wolverine. It depends on who you're interested in following, but there's the New Avengers, Daredevil has a team, a team of Wolverine-like people (I forget their correct terminology), and a group of ladies. It's been really great so far!! I love how many people are involved.

      I agree 100%. Hawkeye always does better with humor, but his dark side is intense. It's completely justified, though. He even has a kid in this, which is weird. She's a badass, btw. His story takes place AFTER Thanos and all that stuff went down.

  2. I don't normally read comics, unless you count reading Calvin and Hobs with my youngest LOL! But, I do love looking at all the artwork and I have girls who love their manga and and graphic novels so I completely get the appeal.

    1. There's just something so fascinating about them! As I reader I can appreciate, love, and enjoy their stories than span over months (and sometimes years). However, I also really like the beautiful illustrations that really bring these stories to life. It's like viewing a story from two different perspectives, because I usually read each page and then go back and follow the artwork. Maybe you just need to find something you like!

    1. It's a mini series! Only 5 issues, so you could totally do it. Legion is David Haller and was diagnosed with a mental disorder as a child, but it's really his power. I believe he's the son of Professor X, and I also think there's a TV series playing with him as the main character. I haven't seen it, but I want to! It's been a very interesting, occasionally trippy, comic.

  5. Ooh Legion sounds intriguing. I think it makes sense to share the comics you're reading, especially if someone has a question about them. I haven't read any comics lately, but I really need to check some out.

    1. I was also sharing Jacob's comics because I plan on reading some of them in the future, and I really like sharing the artwork! However, it just makes more sense to do it this way--like you said! If you need any recs, let me know! I'd be happy to help make suggestions.
