Welcome to MTV Geek's New Comic Book Day Pull-List! Each week, we look at the best new releases to hit comic shops, and point you at the books you should be reading. 

This week, we have picks from Monkeybrain, Marvel, Titan, Panelvision, Image, and Boom!



In 2007, Boom! Studios published Steven Grant's "2 Guns," a five-issue mini-series about a couple of undercover agents who get themselves into trouble with the Navy, the CIA, and the mob.  It's a quick and entertaining read, full of twists and turns and riffs on established caper formulas.

And now, "2 Guns" has become the first Boom! comic to be turned into a major motion picture.  I was curious to see what details from the comic were still present in the filmed adaptation, and what had changed with the Hollywoodization of the story.

The world of comics publishing was shaken at the end of June when it was announced that Boom! Studios had acquired Archaia Entertainment, merging two of the most respected indie companies into a single entity.  And while from a certain perspective, this seemed like a natural pairing – two titans of the small press teaming up to take on the world – it also raised some concerns among readers, creators, and press.
