The Comic Book Men Comic Book Pull List: February 25, 2015

“Yeah, you could say this is an ass-kiss, but honestly, if you’ve never read Kevin Smith’s Green Arrow run, you are really missing out. Before this, there were certainly bright spots in Green Arrow’s history, but no one was able to get a feel for Oliver Queen’s character like Kevin did.  He turned him from a Batman-wannabe into a hero with depth and passion beyond his ‘hippie’ nonsense.”

“Gwen Stacy gets her turn as Spider-Woman. Her appearance in Edge of Spider-Verse #2, an alternate universe where Gwen is bitten by the radioactive spider instead of Peter Parker, set off shockwaves in the industry. Fans couldn’t get enough, so now she is featured in her own title.”

SEX CRIMINALS VOL. 2: TWO WORLDS, ONE COP

“Without going into too much detail, Sex Criminals is one of the most innovative and original titles that I have read in some time. I read the first collected volume and got hooked, and volume 2 continues that. If you are a little more adventurous (yes the title has the word ‘sex’ in it), I highly recommend this.”

THIEF OF THIEVES #26

This issue brings the series back from a three month hiatus. With the previous revenge story arc over, I’m hoping to see the title begin anew and see Redmond go back to thieving.”

Comic Book Men airs Sundays at Midnight/11c and you can watch full episodes from Season 4 now.
