Looks like its time for the Pull List again. Marvel takes the crown for having the most exciting week of new comics, while DC seems to be taking an off week, releasing the first issue of the World of New Krypton mini and finishing up both the Cacophony and Terror Titans mnis. Come to think of it, doesn’t DC have some little movie they’ve been talking about a little coming out this weekend? Wonder if they’re related, hurm. Regardless, here’s what you need to read in comics this week. Full listings are available at the publisher’s web sites, or at http://www.diamondcomics.com/
