The Pull List (9/4/13): DC, Marvel kick off events

by

The festivities of Labor Day Weekend were felt by all - even comic book readers. Heroes Aren't Hard to held its Warehouse Sale throughout the weekend, selling a staggering amount of funnybooks. The shop's owner, Shelton Drum, estimated that about 100,000 comics were purchased through the sale, as the 300 long boxes brought out held hundreds of issues each. Twitter and Instagram were full of reports of a packed tent outside the shop at any given time.

As far as this week's lineup of new comics, DC and Marvel are kicking off two huge months. The former is taking the next few weeks to focus on "Villains," highlighting the baddest of the bad in the DC Universe. Marvel is launching one event while continuing another, as Infinity gets its second issue and X-Men: Battle of the Atom begins.

As for this week's Title You Can't Miss, I'd have to go with Infinity, as the first issue promises a complex, pulse-pounding tale weaved by Jonathan Hickman. Get your Thanos fix ahead of his film appearances.
