Comic Book Day: Pull List for October 30, 2013

cbd-featured

by on October 30, 2013

It may be All Hallows’ Eve Eve, but it’s still Comic Book Day, you guys, which means that you’ll have to dip into your discount candy budget to shell out for some seriously so-good-it’s-spooky titles on this week’s pull list.

Top Picks

Fox1FionaVar.600

The Fox #1 | Mark Waid and Dean Haspiel

Like a glorious phoenix rising from the ashes of forgotten superheroes comes The Fox (and a whole slew of other Red Circle Universe comics from the fine folks over at Archie Comics), a pulpy adventure comic that oozes humor, heart, and metatextual commentary out of every pore . Following the adventures of photojournalist-by-day, superhero-by-night Paul Patton, who comes off like the bastard child of Peter Parker and Lamont Cranston (in a good way), The Fox #1 is a rollicking first issue and a terrific reintroduction to a hero that is a sight for sore eyes to some and a newcomer to others. When it comes to saving the day, Patton is supremely confident in his abilities, but doesn’t want to use them. A reluctant superhero is nothing new, but Haspiel’s art and Waid’s snappy dialogue gives this oft-rebooted character a fresh feel and a spring in his step that gives the issue momentum. Keeping pulp lighthearted is a weightier task, but, with The Fox, Waid and Haspiel rise to the challenge, creating a fun, refreshing book that I’m eager to see continue to grow and evolve.

witchblade_170-1_copy

Witchblade #170 | Ron Marz, Laura Braga and Betsy Gonia

After spending a few years away from the book, Ron Marz makes his return to Witchblade with a pair of stories – one in the past, one in the present – that bring us up to speed on what’s new with Sarah Pezzini and definitively make it known that this is a new era. Just what defines this new era? Well, for one, Sarah no longer has the Witchblade. Marz brings an attitude to the book that is refreshing, welcome, and familiar all at once. Our dueling stories of Sarah trying to get rid of the amulet with Patience’s help and Sarah sans Witchblade in the present are jam-packed with mystery and will definitely come to a head at some point down the road. For now, this is a terrific return to form and the combination of Marz’s writing with the eye-popping art of Laura Braga and Betsy Gonia elevates it from good to great.

Sandman-Overture-CV1_SOLICIT_sxvqsdoynu_

The Sandman: Overture #1 | Neil Gaiman and J.H. Williams III

Stop reading this and go buy this issue. Seriously, just go buy it. It’s new Sandman from Neil Motherfucking Gaiman, for crying out loud. And incredibly lush painted panels from J.H. Williams III. I am furious that you are still reading this. The Corinthian is back and up to no good. Dream is in danger. Destiny and Death are both back. Stop reading this and go buy this issue. Far and away, this is one of the best single issues I’ve read this year. Stop reading now. Go buy it.
