Comic Book Day: Pull List for February 20th, 2013

cbd-featured

Dazed and confused from the bliss of a three-day weekend? Mesmerized by the promises of 0% APR on a new whatever-the-hell-car-you-bought-on-President’s Day? Clear that mental fog right quick, because it’s Comic Book Day, and you need to separate the wheat from the chaff. Just kidding – that’s why we’re here! Without further ado, let’s get to this week’s pull list.

Top Picks

BlackBeetle_NoWayOut2

Black Beetle: No Way Out #2 | Francesco Francavilla

I hate Francesco Francavilla for making me curse the heavens each month that his phenomenal Black Beetle: No Way Out is only 20-something short pages. After reading this pulpy thrill ride, I don’t want to go back to the real world; I want to rent a run-down apartment in Colt City and swill bourbon while the Beetle delves down into the muck and the mire of the city’s underworld. If you thought issue one went at a breakneck pace, then think again: issue two barely gives you time to catch your breath before plunging you into a brand new sink-or-swim situation. Anchored by phenomenal art and innovative page layouts (seriously, how are more people not talking about this), Francavilla’s sizzling story leaps off the page, making for one of the best books I’ve read in a while.

nova_01_cover

Nova #1 | Jeph Loeb and Ed McGuinness

Ah, Nova – you’re back right when we needed Marvel to step up its intergalactic game (and, no, not with S.W.O.R.D.). And what’s this? You’re bringing the Nova Corps along with you? Oh, you shouldn’t have. Considering that this is written by Jeph Loeb, it seems like this will be a terrific entry point for readers to get familiar with the classic superhero and give them plenty of reasons for Guardians of the Galaxy crossovers in advance of the coming movie. Who would you want to play this new Nova? God help me if you say Josh Hutcherson. In any event, Nova is a fun, new entry to the Marvel NOW! initiative, and we’re hoping that he can fill the Peter Parker-shaped hole in our collective hearts.

JLA-1-cover

Justice League of America #1 | Geoff Johns and Dave Finch

Having 50 covers – one for every state – replicating the famous “Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima” may feel a little gimmicky, but the excitement over seeing the badass Simon Baz (a.k.a. the new Muslim Green Lantern) and a new crew to defend our most basic freedom (the freedom from imminent destruction by metahumans) is pretty darn exciting. With a team including Steve Trevor, Martian Manhunter, Green Arrow, Catwoman, Hawkman, Katana, Vibe, Stargirl and Simon Baz, this book has an exciting feeling to it, because using lesser known characters gives Johns a freedom to concoct stickier situations than we might expect from a Justice League book. As we march towards “Trinity War” later this year, the new JLA should definitely be on your radar.
