Comic Book Day: Pull List for December 12th, 2012

With a new Man of Steel trailer, the impending release of The Hobbit, and 9 minutes of Star Trek footage to look forward to, it’s a pretty good week to be a nerd. And this week’s comic book bounty is the icing on this layer cake of awesome. So, chill out, Wednesday. We know there’s more to the workweek, but it’s Comic Book Day and we don’t care.

Top Picks

Avengers Arena #1 | Dennis Hopeless & Kev Walker and Frank Martin

I was beyond excited when Marvel announced this title back in September, so today sort of feels like Christmas Day came early. Did Santa deliver? Or was it a lump of coal? From the Dave Johnson cover paying tribute to Japanese cult classic/Hunger Games‘ cooler older brother Battle Royale to the action-packed sequences of teenage mutants fighting to the death in Arcade’s nightmarish amusement park-turned-thunderdome, Dennis Hopeless’ Avengers Arena hits the ground running and leaves a trail of bloody, bloody footprints. This is a thrilling introduction to the newest Marvel NOW! series (and a complete 180 from Avengers Academy), and I can’t wait to see what Katniss X-23 will do next.

Batman #15 | Scott Snyder & Greg Capullo and Jonathan Glapion

Scott Snyder doesn’t pull any punches in “Death of the Family,” the highly anticipated follow-up to this year’s excellent “Court of Owls,” but the real killer in these pages is Greg Capullo’s stunning artwork. The Joker’s sinister plot continues to edge closer and closer to the spotlight, but thankfully Snyder doesn’t spoon-feed it to us so we can play the role of World’s Second Greatest Detective. This book continues to be one of the highlights of DC’s New 52 lineup, and this darkly thrilling issue is no exception.

Space: 1999: Aftershock and Awe TPB| Andrew E.C. Gaska & Miki and Gray Morrow

Did you get a chance to peruse our preview pages of Archaia’s sci-fi revival of Space: 1999? If so, then a simple “nuff said” should suffice here. If not, then read our Barbara Bain interview and know that this is an awesome alt-history universe in which JFK was never assassinated, humanity built a base on the moon, and shit hits the fan in a big way. It’s a taut space thriller from a time that never was, and it’s a book you won’t want to put down.
