Sword Daughter #1
Dark Horse Comics brings the tale of Sword Daughter, wherein a father and daughter, the two survivors of a slaughter by a group called the Forty Swords, set out across Europe in seek of revenge. Brian Wood and Mach Chater tell this tale.
"The Wedding" has begun, and Robin has already had a visit from his "grandfather." Someone else wanted an invitation, but we all knew he was going to be there anyway. Tom King and Mikel Janin are the team behind this one.
The Curse of Brimstone #3
Among the best of DC's New Age of Heroes, Curse of Brimstone continues on with the Salesman taking Joe's father hostage. Justin Jordan and Philip Tan are the creators of this title.
The war between Deathstroke and the Batman continues, and people are being caught in the crossfire. Christopher Priest, Carlo Pagulayan, and Roberto Viacava are the ones to thank for the continuation to the epic.
Green Arrow #41

The Green Lantern Corps fears for the possibilities that lie in the ring of Jessica Cruz and are bringing her in to investigate.
Justice League #1
This one I'm especially excited to see start. Scott Snyder and Jim Cheung kick off a new era of the Justice League as they try to answer the new and varied threats to the universe after the events of Metal and No Justice. Plus, Hawkgirl, John Stewart, and Martian Manhunter join the team!
Man of Steel #2
The second issue of my beloved Brian Michael Bendis' (hit me up, B) inaugural Superman series, this one features artists Jason Fabok, Even Shaner, and Steve Rude. The first issue honestly blew me away, and I can't wait to see what else Bendis does with the character.
Benjamin Percy and Chris Mooneyham continue their run on Nightwing, as Dick Grayson tries to discover the secret behind the powerful tech that is being used to take over Bludhaven.
Another of the New Age of Heroes book, by Steve Orlando, Cary Nord, and Ryan Sook, brings the story of disparate and strange heroes trying to explore the mysteries and protect against the dangers unleashed by the incursion of the Dark Multiverse.
Wonder Woman Annual #2
Wonder Woman is called to aid the Star Sapphire Corps, and she is granted a Violet Ring to help them. Marc Laming and Frazer Irving join writer James Robinson for this Wonder Woman epic.
Red Sonja/Tarzan #2
Gail Simone and Walter Geovani delivered a solid read with Red Sonja/Tarzan #1, and, given that it's Gail Simone, I expect great things from the rest of the series. Here, Red Sonja and Tarzan start their war against Eson Duul in earnest.
Rick Veitch's the One #5
Rick Veitch's The One comes to its penultimate issue as the American and Soviet superhumans come to blows in a fight that could level the world.
Black Science #36
If you were paying attention to my online ravings, you know that I adored Black Science #35, and it was enough to check out the follow-up issue to this series from Rick Remender and Matteo Scalera
Death or Glory #2
Another Rick Remender book I was absolutely crazy about, Death or Glory #1 provided a story of a young woman going on the run from the mob run by her ex-husband. Now, she has a semi-truck full of people to contend with.
Isola is another Image Comics series which has been a joy to watch, with art from Karl Kerschl and MSASSYK to die for and an atmospheric story from writers Kerschl and Brendan Fletcher to keep you invested.

Doctor Strange #1
Doctor Strange begins anew with the creative team of Mark Waid and Jesus Saiz. This one finds the Sorcerer Supreme in space!
Immortal Hulk #1
The Hulk is back courtesy of Al Ewing and Joe Bennett. Bruce Banner is hiding out after his impromptu resurrection, and the comic seems to be a horror title, which is an interesting idea.

Tom Taylor and Mahmud Asrar's fantstic X-Men saga continues with the team facing the worldwide hate of mutants, goaded on by Cassandra Nova. Nova has a mole on Jean's team. Who is it?

That's it for another Comics for Your Pull Box. I hope you found something worthwhile, and I look forward to reviewing many of these in the week ahead. See you then.
