The Comic Book Pull List, Vol. #3 by James West

If your not reading these, you should be.

Batman and Robin #10- The Return of Bruce Wayne Begins

I don’t say this often, however, this is honestly one of the greatest single-issue comic book stories I’ve ever read. Maybe not as good as Who Is Donna Troy? or The Kid Who Collects Spider-Man, but it’s up there. With this issue, Grant Morrison begins to weave his tale of how Bruce Wayne is going to return. He does is superbly, as it’s an excellent, fast-paced, old fashioned detective story as Dick Grayson, Damian Wayne, and Alfred scramble around the Wayne mansion on a trail of clues left for him in time by Bruce himself. As Dick puts it, “It’s like one big game of Clue”. The relationship between Grayson and Damian is also beautifully explored, and you find out Damian might not be so mean after all. Definitely a must read.
The Siege #2

I actually can’t say much about this book without spoiling any of the high amounts of awesome. I will say this: a main character literally gets ripped in two, and it ends with a certain character about to taste the end another certain character’s shield. If you haven’t been reading this, pick it up now. It is, after all, the story seven years in the making.
Now get out there and support your local comic book stores. Fuck Barnes and Noble and Amazon... support your local comic book and hobby shops or they will be gone forever!!!!
