Comic Book Day: Pull List for October 16, 2013

In between watching Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and fretting over who is going to play Ant-Man in Edgar Wright’s movie, make it a point of interest to head down to your local comic book store because it’s Comic Book Day, you guys, and that’s what you do! After the excitement of NYCC (a new Serenity book on the way?!), it’s understandable that you might be a bit overwhelmed. You know what we recommend? Put the lime in the coconut, read your body weight in comics, then call us in the morning.

Top Picks

Letter 44 #1 | Charles Soule, Alberto Jiménez Alburquerque, Guy Major and Shawn DePasquale

The latest from Oni Press finds newly inaugurated President-Elect Stephen Blades facing the most difficult crisis of his political career and any political career, for that matter: three years ago, a mission was launched to investigate a mining operation in an asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. This has been kept secret from the American people for good reason – the mining operation isn’t human in nature. Welcome to the world of Letter 44. A solid debut issue from Charles Soule, Letter 44‘s premise may seem silly at first glance, but its stark black-and-white art (in my preview copy at least) and generous helping of mystery, which is slowly doled out over the course of the first issue, makes for a truly compelling read. With a diverse, memorable cast of characters and some truly inspired lettering by our own Shawn DePasquale, Oni Press has the beginning of something special on their hands, so don’t let this fantastic book escape your orbit.

S.H.O.O.T. First #1 | Justin Aclin and Nicolas Daniel Selma

No, it isn’t r/atheism turned into a comic book; the latest creator-owned series from Justin Aclin, S.H.O.O.T. First, has a simple premise: all of those terrible creatures from the Bible, Koran, etc… they’re real and they’re actively trying to destroy the world. Each faction – angels, djinns, elves, yetis, you name it – is trying to bring about the apocalypse in their own way, powered by the belief people put in them. Combining the fantastical paranormal crime solving of B.P.R.D. with the espionage-laden action comedy of something like Danger Girl, S.H.O.O.T. First is a rollicking, fast-paced story that puts an awful lot on the table in its first issue, which puts us smack dab in the middle of a crisis of faith turned into a real crisis. It can be quite a bit to absorb, but if you take the time, it’s a worthwhile read and I have the distinct feeling it’s only going to get better from here.

Justice League of America #8 | Matt Kindt, Doug Mahnke and Christian Alamy

After seeing the fallout of Forever Evil and the Crime Syndicate wreaking havoc on the tattered remains of the Justice League, issue #8 catches us up on what happened to our supposedly dead heroes. Surprise, surprise — they’re not deceased; rather, they’re in the psychological torture equivalent of Arcade’s Murderworld, a man-made prison with multiple levels designed to incapacitate individual members of the Justice Leauge. Wonder Woman is locked in eternal battle and crippled by self-doubt, The Flash has his lightning quick reflexes used against him, Simon Baz must confront ugly truths, or at least perceived ones. It’s a powerful, sinister piece of writing from Matt Kindt that really gives us a horrific look at the nefarious extents to which the Crime Syndicate went to disable their counterparts. The quiet introspection of Martian Manhunter coupled with the sassy, bubblegum personality of Stargirl makes for truly enjoyable narrators to takes us through this nightmarish Panopticon, but what I’m really craving right now is the next issue.
