The Pull List (9/25/13): Angela rises

Since there's a new issue this week, I could have written a few hundred more words on Saga. But I'll put my fanboy inclinations aside for a moment and focus on something else that's been exciting: Angela is becoming a prominent player in cosmic Marvel stories.

Sure, she made her debut with Age of Ultron #10, but with the new Guardians of the Galaxy issue, the character rises in exposure. In 2013, it's fascinating to see a character that was formally under the Image banner in Marvel books. The Todd McFarlane/Neil Gaiman legal battle over the rights to Angela resulted in her presence here today. And if you would have asked an 8-year-old Andy Smith to predict any current character switching to another company, he certainly wouldn't have said this longtime adversary/ally of Image's Spawn would end up in the pages of a revamped Guardians of the Galaxy.

This issue sees Angela facing off with Gamora (and again, just a couple years ago, this kind of thing wouldn't have happened outside of some oddball's fanfic).The coolest part? Gaiman is involved with this issue. And with that, fantasy fans everywhere dropped their laptops and ran to their nearest comic shop.

Here are some other new releases. Write your recommendations in the comments section.
