My comic book pull list

Back in 2019, I started up a pull list for the first time since around 2000 (when Preacher ended and I switched to TPBs for 99% of my comic book reading). I kept track of it on YoreWiki for a couple years, but moved the list here in August 2021; I’ve never had much success building out my wiki, so this is part of a general shift to adding wiki-like content to Yore.

The pulls

This list is current as of April 6, 2022. After switching from print to digital subscriptions at the start of the pandemic, I switched back to print in February 2022 (because comiXology’s new approach no longer feels like it was designed by people who understand comics, for people who love comics).

  1. Immortal X-Men (2022, #1 onwards, Kieron Gillen)
  2. Marauders (2022, #1 onwards, Steve Orlando)
  3. Nightwing (2021, #78 onwards, Tom Taylor)
  4. Superman: Son of Kal-El (2021, #1 onwards, Tom Taylor)
  5. Wolverine (2020, #1 onwards, Benjamin Percy)
  6. X-Men (2021, #1 onwards, Gerry Duggan)

I love indie comics, too, but tend to read those as TPBs rather than single issues. Ditto with manga series, most of which I read through my all-you-can-eat Shonen Jump subscription.

Notes

Due to the pandemic, I switched almost entirely from print to digital comics on March 21, 2020. This has since become my preferred way to read comics.

I took a few months off from reading American comics in 2021 (and read a ton of manga instead), and during that pause I realized that trying to keep up with 12-15 X-books a month had actually burned me out. So I caught up on and/or finished my favorite X-books (I wish your run had been longer, X-Factor!), set aside the rest, and returned with a leaner, more focused — and more manageable — pull list.
