Comic Book Day: Pull List for October 23rd, 2013

From otherworldly westerns to sociopathic supermen to scimitar-wielding contract killers and beyond, this week’s Pull List is fit to burst with all manner of genre goodness. Comic Book Day comes but once a week, but this week’s bounty is a hoard worthy of a prince. So, kick back, relax and prepare your wallets to be lightened by this week’s deluge of delights.

Top Picks

Pretty-Deadly-COVER

Pretty Deadly #1 | Kelly Sue DeConnick and Emma Rios

Sublime beauty, ethereal figures, surreal narratives, and fits and bursts of bloody violence characterize the unreasonably good first issue of Kelly Sue DeConnick’s Pretty Deadly. What begins as a narrative fairy tale between a bunny and a butterfly is quickly interrupted by a bullet that turns the bunny into a grassland Jackson Pollock. This dreamlike sequence gives way to a stage show in a small Western town, a creepy parable about an abused woman with whom Death falls in love and has a child named Ginny. Our mysterious storytellers, a blind man named Fox and a little girl in a vulture-feather cloak named Sissy, take off across the desert, clearly on the run. From whom? An imposing gunslinger known only as Big Alice who may or may not be the daughter of Death herself. One thing’s for certain: DeConnick and Rios have something truly special on their hands with Pretty Deadly. Walking the delicate tightrope between visceral and ephemeral, Pretty Deadly weaves together a chillingly beautiful narrative laden with just the right amounts of violence, menace and mystery.

Justice League #24 | Geoff Johns and Ivan Reis

Man alive, “Forever Evil” is one hell of a dark story arc, and Justice League #24 is pitch black. Revolving around Ultraman, the Kryptonite-chomping evil version of Superman, issue #24 explores his terrifying origins (the destruction of Krypton, meeting Ma and Pa Kent, the Daily Planet) in a way that feels like taking the funhouse mirror tour of Superman’s life. Were Superman raised in a world that desired to stamp out all weakness and prized sociopathy, you’d get Ultraman, and it really comes through in his deeply discomfiting interactions with the staff of The Daily Planet. This issue gives you a cold feeling in the pit of your stomach from page one and doesn’t stop until the thrilling conclusion, which gives us a sorely needed glimmer of hope. I’ve got to hand it to Geoff Johns and company: they’ve really been delivering so far with “Forever Evil”. These inverse versions of the Justice League are almost obnoxiously evil, but they make for one hell of a compelling villain. “Shut up and die, Lara”, indeed.

Conan and the People of the Black Circle #1 | Fred Van Lente and Ariel Olivetti

Set a decade after the Conan ongoing series, Conan and the People of the Black Circle‘s first issue throws the reader into the mountains of Afghulistan, a dangerous place fraught with assassins, intrigue, and powerful necromancy. From its opening pages, Fred Van Lente’s Conan and the People of the Black Circle drops us in the deep end, introducing us to a boatload of lore and exposition right off the bat, but keeps the action moving so as not to be boring. We may not know exactly who these characters are, but we get a definite sense of stakes and a palpable sense that the shit is about to hit the fan. Olivetti’s practiced, painterly style gives the book a mythic quality, deftly blending hyperrealistic figures with otherworldly, ethereal effects to create a potent visual brew. With dark wizards spiriting away a king’s soul, Conan on the run with a kidnapped princess, scimitar-wielding mountain assassins, and betrayal percolating under the surface, Conan and the People of the Black Circle is an epic adventure that you will most definitely want to take.
