My pull list right now is skewed toward DC(10) titles. Nightwing & Robin are the stand out titles although the Bat Family franchise of titles are all strong right now. Wonder Woman has been good. I miss having a Green Arrow title and an Aquaman title. I am hoping for a JSA title sometime before the end of 2021.
At Marvel (7 titles) Thor, Hulk and Daredevil are really good. I have been so disappointed in the Capt America & Iron Man titles. Looking forward to the upcoming Moon Knight title.
I am also getting 2-3 Image titles and 1-2 Valiant titles as well. Really liking the Project Patron title from Aftershock.
I am really bummed that there is no regular Archie series at this time especially for his 80th year!
I'm not even sure what's on my pull right now, mostly mini-series that may have finished. I dropped a bunch when I wound up out of work in April.
What I do know I am getting...
Department of Truth (Image) Seven Secrets (BOOM!) Dune House Atreides (BOOM!) Usagi Yojimbo (IDW) Batman: Black and White (DC) Batman and Scooby Doo Mysteries (DC) Superman: Red and Blue (DC) The Nice House on the Lake (DC/Black Label) The Other History of the DC Universe (DC/Black Label) Marvels (Marvel)
and I am adding the Good Asian after getting the first two issues and really enjoying them.
I also read Something is Killing the Children and Wynd in singles on Hoopla and am picking it up in trade as it comes out, and am picking up the Reckless OGN from Brubaker/Phillips when they come out. I am not sure if Die from Image is done or on hiatus, I haven't read the last arc yet.
I do sample a lot of other newer releases via Hoopla, and those I like, I tend to pick up in trades. I tend to let books pile up even if I am getting it monthly, so I trim a lot of stuff to get in trades instead to keep my pull list down these days.
a lot of stuff I was getting ended...Gideon Falls, Miskatonic, the Hill House stuff, the Sandman Universe stuff, Last God
People don't want the Truth. They want only information that supports what they think they already know. -Vess from Invisible Kingdom
I see a comics culture that preserves and appreciates its past, but doesn't wallow in witless nostalgia. -Scott McCloud
Humans beings always do the most intelligent thing…after they’ve tried every stupid alternative and none of them have worked -Buckminster Fuller
Pull List, I think mostly Image Comics at this point:
- Ascender is ongoing. - Seven to Eternity is about to end. - Monstress is ongoing - Die is about to end. - Sejic and Brubaker have switched to OGNs instead of monthlyish singles for their work (and I fully support that)
New titles like Department of Truth, Six Sidekicks of Trigger Keaton and Decorum, I'm sticking to trades for now.
For the rest: No DC anymore, Far Sector is the last DC title I'm interested in for now. Boom: I'm still getting Buffy for my sister. Marvel: Marauders, Excalibur and X-Factor. X-Factor is ending and I probably replace that one with Way of X. S.W.O.R.D. in trade. Dark Horse: Grendel, about to end, but a new mini will come soon after that. Beasts of Burden, Blackwood and other Dorkin stuff in trade.
My pull list went bye bye when I left my job at the hospital July 2020. Haven't been in an LCS since thanks to COVID and making less pay. Add in uncertainty of how long I may be a Contractor for the State, I am playing it safe spending on necessary monthly bills and unexpected breakdowns like replacing my refrigerator in January or replacing 2 of my cars wheels earlier this month. New comics ate not part of life"s necessity's.
When I had a pull box, I had dropped ALL Marvel, was following Flash and Hawkman at DC, the Disney books Uncle Scrooge and Mickey Mouse at IDW, any Tarzan from Dynamite and Usagi Yojimbo at Dark Horse. I would add occasional other publisher mini's as they caught my eye.
Gimme a home on the ol' prairie where I can sit in my rockin' chair reading my favorite old comic books of yesteryear!

My pull list is pretty fluid, since a good percentage of it is non-superhero series that tend to have definite end points. More Marvel and DC than I thought when I list it out.
Way of X (which apparently is a mini series) Black Widow Ultraman (I think the current one is 'Trials of Ultraman) Demon Days (Which seems to be quarterly) Beta Ray Bill (though this one has been disappointing... only pulling the rest because I ordered it) Strange Academy Star Wars: High Republic
Nightwing Batman: Dark Detective Super Sons Robin Green Lantern Superman and the Authority (When it starts)
Others: Usagi (IDW) The Cimmerian (Ablaze series of minis) Space Pirate Captain Harlock (Ablaze) Nottingham (Mad Cave) Space Bastards (Humanoids..probably a mini) Redemption (AWA.one issue left) Shadow Doctor (Aftershock..also one left) House of Lost Horizaons (DC.. newish mini) Minky WOodcock (TItan... maybe a series of minis? One left in this current one) Compass (Image.. just added) Seven Swords (Aftershock... just added...seems like a mini) XO Manowar (Valiant, just added)

My pull list is at its lowest point ever, with just the following books on it:
Marvel Captain America (although there is just one issue remaining in Coates' run and nothing announced beyond that) Demon Days Marauders - have also added the upcoming Moon Knight ongoing and Darkhawk mini
The only other book on my pull list is Firefly from Boom! Studios.

"If you are strong, be a protector. If you are smart, be a humble influencer. Strength and intelligence can be weapons, so do not wield them against the weak. That makes you a bully. Be bigger than that." - Chris Pratt
The fact that there is a Highway to Hell but only a Stairway to Heaven should tell us all we need to know about expected future traffic.
Just updated my pull when I was at the lcs this afternoon, adding a few titles and realizing there was another book I was still pulling that I had forgotten about because I thought it was a mini that ended, but there was a second mini and the firs tissue of that second mini was in my file-Norse Mythology, P. Craig Russell's adaptation of the Gaiman book.
I actually added 4 titles, first up adding The Good Asian finally, as I was able to track down a copy of #1 to read (and #2 with it). It should be in my file starting with #3.
I finally decided to get the new issues of Scooby Doo Where Are You as they come out instead of waiting to get them at shows after the fact, and added it to my list, coincidentally the new issue had come out last Wednesday, so I grabbed that while there.
The other two adds were upcoming Image series.
The first is the new mini from Jeff LeMire and Andrea Sorrentino, the team behind Gideon Falls, called Primordial. It is a sci-fi series riffing off the consequences of the nations of earth having sent animals into space in the early days of the space programs both in the US and the USSR.
The second is the long awaited/delayed new series from J. H. Williams III and Blackmon announced in 2018 but just now getting released called Echolands.
I’m so far behind in most of my reading I hit a point where DC Universe Infinite has surpassed me with most new releases, so I haven’t been buying anything consistently unless I am caught up.
I did go ahead and order the print copies of the Batman ‘89 and Superman ‘78, both the regular and variant covers for the first issue. I haven’t bought much in the way of print comics in the past few years unless it’s something I’ve really wanted.
