The Pull List 7 | Top 2018 DC and Marvel Comics

The first Pull List for 2019 is here and Hector continues his adoration for Batman with #62 from Tom King & Mitch Gerads. The issue details Batman’s subconscious during a protracted fight with Prof. Pyg in a slaughterhouse.

Other issues discussed this week include Daredevil: Man Without Fear, the Hulk in Hell arc from Immortal Hulk, and Robert Kirkman and Lorenzo de Felici’s new comic Oblivion Song which may or may not be tied into The Walking Dead.
