    Default current pull-list

    Every so often (usually at the beginning of a year), I write out my pull-list to see how many and which series I am following. From year to year, my pull-file is often unrecognizable, due to a combination of series being cancelled or me dropping series that I was curious about.

    My current goal is to cut the list down to 8 or less series that I follow consistently. Does anyone else do this?


    Current/near-future list:

    *=prospective
    /=limited series or ending soon


    DC:
    -Batman
    *Fall and Rise of Captain Atom
    /Earth 2

    Marvel:
    /Squadron Supreme
    -Ultimates^2
    /Unworthy Thor
    *USAvengers
    *Venom

    Other:
    -Frontier
    *GI Joe
    *MASK
    *Star Wars
    *Uber
    -WWE
    Current pull-file:

    Iron Man 2020
    2020 misc (assorted one-shots and minis)
    Transformers
    Transformers: Galaxies
    X-Force

    Cutting your list to 8 books saves money. A wise decision.

    I am interested in USAvengers and Unworthy Thor but I stopped regularly reading Squadron Supreme.

    No I don't do pull lists. I just read new comics that I hear about and then only keep reading what I like and stop reading what I don't like.

    Aside from one or two stores (that are not on my normal flight path), stores around here generally order to sell-through in a few weeks. (Back-issues are a lost art.) A pull-file is the best way to guarantee not missing an issue.

    I want to say that "Squadron Supreme" is a better series. I want to say that I will miss it more than I will. But, if not for my sentimental attachment to the characters and idea, I probably would have dropped it with the second or third arc.

    Cutting your list to 8 books is killing the industry!

    Think! Do you really need 3 meals a day?

    Did you know that every atom in our bodies was once part of a star? Think about that… EVERYTHING changes. Caterpillars turn into butterflies and stars turn into @$$holes.

    I don't keep a proper full-list, but I do make a weekly list of titles coming out I'm interested in, as well as a running list of what I've been reading and which issue I need next in that series. That said, it constantly in flux as I'll often pick up a #1 to see if I like it and decide to not continue, or am adding new series to look into. I guess I'm still testing waters.
