Comic Book Day: Pull List for June 19th, 2013

cbd-featured

by on June 19, 2013

If you can pry yourself away from playing The Last of Us or watching Man of Steel long enough to make it down to your local comic book store, we highly recommend it because it’s Comic Book Day, and there’s plenty of new titles to be had. From supernatural westerns to revivals of classic series to promising new titles, this week’s pull list is packed to the gills with plenty of pulpy, comic goodness that’s part of a balanced breakfast.

100 Bullets: Brother Lono #1 | Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso

When we last saw Lono, Dizzy Cordova had shot him through the chest, leaving him to die. Fortunately for us, Lono is made of tougher stuff and lived to fight another day. Azzarello, Rissa and the whole 100 Bullets gang return for an 8 issue mini-series that brings us back to the wild, wonderfully violent world they created. Now, Lono is alive and in Mexico of all places, working with a priest and a nun. Has he changed? Is he a choir boy now? Not quite. Lono is still one of the deadliest men on the planet, and we have a feeling that he’s going to rack up quite the body count over the course of eight issues. Above all else, it’s damn good to be back in the world of 100 Bullets. In our interview with Azzarello, he said that the story takes place in real time since the main series ended, but with Brother Lono, it feels like no time at all.

The Sixth Gun #32 | Cullen Bunn, Brian Hurtt, and Bill Crabtree

NBC may have dashed our hopes of seeing Cullen Bunn’s excellent The Sixth Gun on the small screen, but thankfully Oni Press is giving us our supernatural western fix with a brand new issue. Horror-tinged comics have been experiencing a bit of a revolution in the past few years, and The Sixth Gun is no exception. Issue #32 sends us deeper down the rabbit hole, as Becky discovers the true power of the Six, those magical pistols around which the series revolves, and the consequences that could occur if they fall into the wrong hands. With Skinwalkers, knights, forgotten kingdoms and a truly brutal band of outlaws set on a collision course, this is a barnburner of story. Brian Hurtt’s stylized artwork pops off the page thanks to some ace coloring by Bill Crabtree and Bunn continues to prove why he’s a force to be reckoned with in the comics world.

Wild Blue Yonder #1 | Mike Raicht, Austin Harrison and Zach Howard

With a deluge of post-apocalyptic tales out there vying for your attention, it can be difficult to figure out which ones are worth your time and which ones aren’t worth letting into your fallout shelter. IDW Publishing’s new series Wild Blue Yonder is a breath of fresh air as far as the genre is concerned. Set in a near-future version of Earth where radioactive pollution covers the ground, the only safety to be had is up in the air, above the clouds. Throw in dwindling supplies and avaricious air pirates, and you have the kind of Skies of Arcadia-meets-Fallout-style story that has boundless potential. This week, if you’re looking for a new story to whet your whistle, I heartily recommend taking flight with the crew of the Dawn and heading into the Wild Blue Yonder.
