Comic Book Day: Pull List for July 31, 2013

Summer may be entering the home stretch as July comes to a close, but like the U.S. Postal Service, Comic Book Day is undeterred by rain, sleet, fog, snow, or backyard barbecues and knocking back cold ones. In fact, reading a comic book while eating barbecue and knocking back a cold one is a wonderful summer pastime. This week’s pull list is jam-packed with all sorts of goodies, including several movie tie-ins/sequels like 3 Guns and Kick-Ass 3, brand new series, and fond farewells to some titles we love. So, stick around and read on because the pull list waits for no man! Okay, it will wait for you, but only because we like you.

X-Men: Legacy #14 | Si Spurrier, Tan Eng Huat and Craig Yeung

Despite my deep and abiding love for all the Children of the Atom, I constantly find myself drawn deeper and deeper into the weird, wacked out world of X-Men: Legacy. Si Spurrier’s portrayal of Legion is multifaceted and leaves the reader feeling deeply conflicted. One minute you’re rooting for the guy, the next you’re aghast at the measures he’d resort to in the name of preserving mutantkind. Issue #14 finds the conflict with Pete Wisdom, Britain’s head of paranormal intelligence, coming to a head as the game of superspy vs. superspy continues. The cover is a good metaphor for what’s going on, as Legion increasingly uses his friends and foes alike like game pieces to achieve his ultimate ends. Come for the well-round characters and impressive artwork, but stay for the moral quandaries and thought-provoking plot twists.

COLLID_Cv1_PRINT_3pncuy4wjo_

Collider #1 | Simon Oliver, Robbi Rodriguez and Rico Renzi

Vertigo’s latest offering may look like your typical “science run wild” story, but Collider #1 offers up a metaphysical mindbender of a story that takes what you know about physics and twists it on its head. In the near future, it’s discovered that the rules of physics aren’t quite as carved in stone as we originally thought, and it’s up to the Federal Bureau of Physics to right wrongs and keep the physical world in check. Oliver’s story is strong, at times evoking a book like B.P.R.D., but when paired with Rodriguez’s artwork, it becomes a horse of a different color (an awesome horse, that is to say). Collider #1 is a strong debut, to be certain, and you can see elements of Oliver’s masterplan creeping in and the underlying questions of the series. What happens when we completely place our faith in something? Well, Collider happens, so forget what you thought you knew about the laws of physics and let the creators behind Collider take you on one hell of a ride.

It Girl & the Atomics #12 | Jamie S. Rich, Mike Norton, Natalie Nourigat, Chynna Clugston Flores and Allen Passalaqua

Alas, poor It Girl. We knew him, Horatio. Issue #12 marks the end of It Girl & the Atomics, for now. We knew it was coming – Rich confirmed as much earlier this year – but it’s still sad to see the series go as it was a genuinely fresh take on an older, relatively unknown property. The issue expertly weaves together three stories involving everything from incompetent supervillains to a plague of mummies, and allows Rich and his rotating team of artists to wrap things up rather nicely. The animated, almost cartoony vibe of the series gives the book a crackling energy and sense of inertia that serves it well. Fortunately for us, Rich and Co. didn’t close the book entirely on It Girl. For now though, we’ll just have to treasure the time we had together and re-read these 22 pages until our eyes bleed.
