The Pull: A Look at the Comics Dropping the Week of July 28th

Praise be! After last week’s backbreaker of a release list, the comic gods have blessed me with a not too big but also not too small week of titles. Let’s look at those that stand out in this week’s edition of The Pull, which is headlined not by a debut, but a conclusion!

Book of the Week: Cable #12

I feel like I’m the minority here, but Gerry Duggan and Phil Noto’s Cable has been one of my favorite X-Men titles of this era. It’s super fun. It’s absurd. It’s energetic. In short: it’s a comedy! I love that about it.

But in the end, it’s been about the character, and all versions of him at that (and I truly mean all versions). While it’s a very funny comic at times, it’s been one that has impressed with its emotional depth and its ability to connect readers to a version of the character many of them were skeptical of to start with. It’s served a purpose, seemingly, as it appears the classic version will take the lead going forward. But it also has had a ton of narrative value, as it’s proven to be a very good comic, and one I’ll look back fondly on for 12 issues of all killer, no filler.
