Comic Book Day: Pull List for November 13, 2013

Greetings from across the pond, me old china! This week’s pull list is coming to you all the way from foggy Londontown, where I’m stationed for the week as I try to track down a real life TARDIS and talk to Simon Pegg and Nick Frost about The World’s End and other assorted projects. But not even the allure of fish and chips and room temperature beer could keep me from my sworn duty to bring you the latest and greatest in your local comic book store, because no matter where Wednesdays happen, it’s still Comic Book Day, and this is the pull list. So, brace your wallets for impact and check out this week’s top picks.

Top Picks

Archie02

Afterlife with Archie #2 | Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Francesca Francavilla

Note: This book technically doesn’t come out until November 20th, but the folks at Archie Comics generously sent me an advance review copy.

With its heady blend of tongue-in-cheek nostalgia, alternately heartfelt and hilarious dialogue, and necrophagic narrative excellence, Afterlife with Archie may be the single most entertaining book on store shelves right now. Carrie writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa crafts a dark, self-aware, and deeply entertaining version of Riverdale. Who knew that it would take a zombie apocalypse to make me care about Archie again? Per usual, Francesca Francavilla churns out saliva-inducing panel after panel of gorgeous, jaw-dropping, face-eating art. Francavilla is one of the greatest artists in the game right now, and Aguirre-Sacasa really knows how to make the artist shine by giving him these increasingly insane and fist-pumping scenes to illustrate. Forget all the other zombie-related comics coming out this week – Afterlife with Archie is the real deal and is a certified must-read for longtime fans of the series and recent Riverdale recruits alike.

shaolin2

Shaolin Cowboy #2 | Geof Darrow and Dave Stewart

After speaking with veteran comics creator Geof Darrow last week, I gained a newfound respect for his little oddball creation Shaolin Cowboy. Its protagonist, wielding a double-sided bo staff with chainsaws affixed to either end, cuts a bloody swath through hordes of zombies in this almost entirely wordless issue. The only sound comes from the chainsaw, writing in stark, bold letters at the top of each gloriously jam-packed panel and accompanied by a slowly depleting fuel gauge. Darrow achieved an almost Wall-E-ian use of silence in the first issue, contrasting the inner calm and focus of its titular character with gloriously over the top violence. This issue kicks things up to eleven with a nearly wordless 19 pages that pack in such minute and grotesque detail that you won’t know whether to throw up or give it up for Darrow and Stewart. If you like your zombie apocalypse stories with a side of kung-fu wisdom and a palpable sense of ultraviolent zen, then look no further than Dark Horse’s Shaolin Cowboy.

Walking-Dead-116-Cover

The Walking Dead #116 | Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard

As much as I try to tell myself that there are other comics I should be reading, I can’t escape the allure of The Walking Dead. Kirkman and Adlard are celebrating ten years of flesh-eating mayhem in style with their latest arc, “All Out War”, that pits the survivors of the Kingdom, Alexandria, and the Hilltop against the monolithic evil of The Saviors. Negan, at this point, is like the Andrew Dice Clay-flavor variant of The Governor. He’s a fucked up, megalomaniacal sadist with a mean streak a mile long, but he’s ruthless, charismatic, and intelligent enough to rule over his fellow man. When we last left Rick and his army, they were engaged in a tense match of brinksmanship at the Saviors’ home base, but little did we know that Rick had a trick up his sleeve. By shooting out the windows and breaking down their gates, Rick hopes to trap the Saviors inside by attracting a herd of walkers to their gates. It’s ballsy and probably cost them a few lives – possibly Holly’s – but it’s damn fun to watch it play out, especially when Charlie Adlard zooms out for one of his patented wide-angle two-page spreads. This is The Walking Dead at its balls-to-the-wall craziest – its biggest battle yet – and “All Out War” is quickly proving itself to be necessary reading for anyone who calls himself or herself a fan of the series. Do yourself a favor and sate your otherworldly hunger by picking up this issue post-haste.
