by on March 12, 2014

Were you thinking to yourself, “Man alive! I have so much expendable income, but nowhere to spend it. Whatever will I do?” Well, even if you weren’t, you’re in the right place, because we’ve got a heaping helping of brand new comic books on this week’s pull list, including an outsized Bat-stravaganza, a super-powered WWII mini-series, and the return of the baddest mama in the Marvel Universe. It’s not Christmas in March; it’s Comic Book Day, and this is the Pull List.

Batman #29 | DC Comics | Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo

Since Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo burst on to the scene with their now seminal “Court of Owls” arc, their run on Batman has been nigh unassailable, and their work on “Zero Year” is no exception. We’ve seen young, untested Batman before, but there’s a strangely compelling quality to Snyder’s portrayal of the Dark Knight during his formative years. The “Dark City” chapter of Batman’s past places him in a rare position indeed, one in which he’s been outsmarted by Edward Nygma. Expertly capturing the frenetic chaos and elemental madness of an incoming superstorm, Capullo’s artwork lends a foreboding quality to the whole outsized issue, which gives every moment, every decision that Batman makes, every punch thrown an underlying sense of tension and high stakes that make the book a gripping experience from start to finish. I could wax on about this book all day, but truth be told, you’d be better served by just picking up a copy for yourself and seeing what all the hype is about.

Captain Marvel #1 | Marvel Comics | Kelly Sue DeConnick, David Lopez, Lee Loughridge, VC’s Joe Caramagna

Between She-Hulk, Black Widow, and this week’s Captain Marvel #1, Marvel is hitting some pretty major home runs when it comes to well-written, beautifully drawn, and genuinely engaging books starring strong female leads. While this has been the subject of countless think pieces – which, in and of itself, may be indicative of a larger problem – the fact of the matter is that, regardless of the protagonist’s gender, these are just solid comics, period. Okay, now that that’s out of the way, let’s talk about what a wonderfully plotted issue #1 this is. By giving us a taste of the intergalactic adventures ahead and a flashback sequence that perfectly maps out how Carol Danvers found herself running from secret police in an otherworldly bazaar, Kelly Sue DeConnick has masterfully told us all that we need to know and made sure that we’re on board for everything to come.

Carol Danvers is, by all accounts, a strong woman. Quite literally, she has super strength, but she also displays a resilience of character and a capacity for compassion that show she’s more human than her tough-as-nails exterior might suggest. Despite her incredible abilities and experience saving the world, she’s restless. You know how sometimes you’re hungry for something, but you can’t just nail down what exactly that is? It’s a maddening craving, and that’s what Carol Danvers has. Outward appearances would suggest that everything’s fine — she’s a superhero, she lives in the Statue of Liberty (!), and she has a healthy romantic relationship with a co-worker. Yet, that craving, that feeling of insatiable emptiness gnaws away at her from the inside out, giving the book a poignant, wistful quality that contrasts nicely with DeConnick’s snappy dialogue.

Equally praise-worthy is David Lopez’s artwork, which offers up a level of photorealism that avoids the Uncanny Valley, taking us on a high-flying thrill ride through alien vistas, soaring through the sky, and even to something as mundane as a birthday party, all the while managing to keep things cinematic and pleasing to the eye. This style of artwork, which manages to blend the realistic with the hyper-stylized comic book-y aesthetic, is really doing it for me right now, and makes Captain Marvel an even bigger joy to read than it already is. So, go on down to your local comic book store and pick this up post-haste — Captain’s orders.

The Royals: Masters of War #2 | Vertigo | Rob Williams, Simon Coleby, JD Mettler, and Wes Abbott

Going into The Royals: Masters of War #2, I was more than a little nervous that the book wouldn’t live up to how inventive and exhilarating the first issue was. The Downton Abbey-meets-Saving Private Ryan mini-series, thankfully, does not disappoint in its second issue, as the action shifts from England to America following Prince Henry taking to the skies to put a stop to the German bombing raids over London. Greeted by adoring American crowds, the royals make their way to rendezvous with President Roosevelt, a brave but restrained man who is morally opposed to the war but unwilling to commit America’s full might to the war effort. Instead, Roosevelt offers up their version of the Royals, a paltry group of costumed covert agents that pale in comparison to the powers granted by royal blood. All in all, issue #2 manages to heighten the stakes while introducing dangerous new players to the global stage on which this superpowered slugfest version of World War II is playing out. Between the drunkenness, incestuous undertones, and bloodshed, Williams’ narrative is well-paced and carefully structured, doling out just enough “oh shit” moments and plot twists to keep you wanting just one more page, and Coleby’s art once again offers up a visual feast, dancing between quieter introspective moments and explosive tableaus of all-out war. I, for one, welcome our new Masters, and I think you will too.

Comic Book Day: Pull List for February 26th, 2014

cbd-featured

by on February 26, 2014

Still reeling from k-holing on the surplus of True Detective theories and think pieces swirling around the internet? Me, too. Fortunately, relief is in sight and its name is Comic Book Day, that magical day of the week when store shelves are flooded with a deluge of new graphic delights. With new offerings from the likes of Scott Snyder and Sean Murphy, Matt Kindt, Gail Simone, and more, there’s no shortage of ways to spend your hard-earned cash at your local comic book store this week. So, sit back, relax and let the pull list wash over you like a gentle wave.

The Wake #6 | Vertigo | Scott Snyder, Sean Murphy, Matt Hollingsworth, Jared K. Fletcher

The second half of Scott Snyder and Sean Murphy’s phenomenal deep sea thriller The Wake has begun, and it takes us 200 years into the future to a world where the oceans have risen, America is a devastated shell of its former self, and dangerous monsters stalk the seas. Our new heroine, Leeward, quickly proves that she is not to be taken lightly, making her money by decapitating the Mers, the aforementioned monsters, and selling their heads on the black market in exchange for radio parts. Why radio parts? Well, Leeward is looking for a signal, a sign of life, some indication that not all hope is lost. While it’s always better if you’ve read the story from the beginning, The Wake #6 is also fantastic because it’s a jumping-on point that works as well for new readers as it does for existing ones. Everything you need to know is carefully, tactfully explained in the context of the story, so you won’t feel hopelessly out of your element. Overall, The Wake #6 is a delightfully dystopian bit of storytelling from Scott Snyder who is continuing to show his incredible versatility as a writer and typically wonderful, visceral artwork from Sean Murphy, and the story’s second half is shaping up to be something you most definitely won’t want to miss.

Mind MGMT #19 | Dark Horse | Matt Kindt

The plot continues to thicken at a breakneck pace in Matt Kindt’s positively stellar psychodrama Mind MGMT, as Meru, Lyme, and the rogue agents continue their game of international brinksmanship against The Eraser and her growing army of superpowered malcontents. Tensions are running high as Meru and her team touch down in Berlin where they’re on the hunt for an agent who specializes in illusions. No one likes having their powers neutralized – especially agents – and Meru’s very presence is a constant source of stress for some in the group. Unfortunately for our heroes, the element of surprise is soon lost, forcing a city-wide game of cat and mouse that puts our protagonists in a fair bit more mortal peril than they realize they’re in. Kindt has a real talent for balancing copious amounts of backstory and exposition with a real sense of momentum; you’re absorbing a lot of information, but Kindt keeps the action moving in such a way that you never feel like you’re being subjected to a history lesson. Once again, the book is a visual tour-de-force, a woozy watercolor pastiche that evokes newspaper clippings hung up on a bulletin board like Rustin Cohle obsessing over a case, throwback espionage thrillers, and a style all the book’s own that sets it apart from the crowd. There’s a reason that we named this book one of our favorite comics of 2013, so get on board, because not even Denzel Washington can stop this runaway train.

Tomb Raider #1 | Dark Horse | Gail Simone, Nicolás Daniel Selma, Juan Gedeon, Michael Atiyeh, Michael Heisler

Have you played the new Tomb Raider game? If not, what are you waiting for? Not only was it one of the best games of 2013, but it was one of the best portrayals of Lara Croft we’ve seen in ages, which is why the news that the story would live on in comic book form was so exciting. Attaching Gail Simone as the writer? Even better. If you were worried that this would be a lame novelization of the game, then you can exhale, because this is not a retread of what you’ve already seen. Picking up in the wake of the events of the game, Lara is having trouble readjusting to civilian life. Plagued by nightmares of what happened on the island and wracked with guilt over those who didn’t return, Lara is doing her best just to get by, and her friends are growing increasingly cagey. A mysterious call from Jonah brings her out to the desert where her old friend is acting increasingly erratic, rambling about a curse that followed them off the island. What follows next gives the distinct impression that there might just be some truth to his craziness yet, and Lara has escaped the frying pan of Yamatai only to land in a fire that follows her wherever she goes.

Simone has a terrific sense of the characters and crafts a compelling enough narrative for the first issue. While a bit slow to start, the book soon hits the ground running and picks up enough speed to hook you in and get you excited for issue #2. Nicolás Daniel Selma’s artwork has a minimalist quality to it that is a bit jarring coming from the photorealism of the video game, but I quickly settled into his style and grew to appreciate his fluid, delicate lines. As far as video game adaptations go, this is one of the better books I’ve read, and is a great way to scratch that Tomb Raider itch until the next installment of the series comes out.

Comic Book Day: Pull List for February 12, 2014

cbd-featured

by on February 12, 2014

Holy smokes, folks! What a thrilling week it’s been for comics fans, huh? Jimmy Palmiotti and the PaperFilms crew launched their sixth (!) Kickstarter for DenverValiant unveiled their epic Valiant First initiative, and Gotham found a whole slew of new cast members including Alfred and the Penguin! But now, it’s Comic Book Day and there’s a slew of brand new titles for your reading pleasure. From the relaunch of She-Hulk to a superpowered WWII-era Downton Abbey-esque mini-series to more Walking Dead goodness, this week’s pull list is guaranteed to put a smile on your face (and a hole in your wallet).

Top Picks

shehulk1

She-Hulk #1 | Marvel Comics | Charles Soule, Javier Pulido, Muntsa Vicente, VC’s Clayton Cowles

America, meet your new favorite book. If there was any doubt in your mind whether Charles Soule was one of the best writers working right now, then look no further than She-Hulk #1. a slick, self-assured, and surprisingly funny new book that gives us a taste of both sides of Jennifer Walters — the Avenger and the attorney. We meet Jessica during a transitional employment as she takes on a case for Holly Harrow, widow of the late Jonas Harrow, that takes her through the wringer in the courtroom and in Stark Tower as she goes head to head with Tony Stark’s formidable legal team. Melding the courtroom drama of Daredevil and the the day-to-day minutiae of Hawkeye, She-Hulk #1 strikes a sweet a narrative sweet spot, nicely setting the table for adventures to come and making one hell of a first impression. This is also thanks in large part to Javier Pulido’s expressive pencils and Muntsa Vicente’s vibrant color palette, which gives the book a throwback aesthetic that’s absolutely bursting with life and charisma. This is a case study in how to deliver a compelling first issue and something you definitely don’t want to leave off your pull list.

royals1

The Royals: Masters of War #1 | Vertigo | Rob Williams, Simon Coleby, JD Mettler, and Wes Abbott

The press release for The Royals: Masters of War compares it to “Downton Abbey crossed with the opening sequence of Saving Private Ryan,” and I’ve got to say, for once, it wasn’t hyperbole. This book was dynamite from start to finish, from its explosive opening sequence to its clever, nuanced Upstairs/Downstairs drama. Immediately, you’ll find yourself pulled into this elaborate, imaginative vision of World War II-era Europe thanks to some jaw-dropping artwork from artist Simon Coleby. Seriously, just crack open the book and flip to page two — you’ll see exactly what I’m talking about. But The Royals: Masters of War isn’t just eye candy; this is a mini-series with legs, one that posits, “What if those people of royal descent had superpowers?” It’s a clever conceit and one that plays out beautifully as we get a look at the politics of the era and how over time, the Royal Family of England ceased using its powers to lead their nation into glorious battles in favor of sitting on their royal rumps and gadding about with high society. There’s plenty to like here for fans of soapy, class-based drama and fans of far out alt-history war stories, so do yourself a favor and pull this from a store shelf like Arthur pulled the sword from the stone.

twd121

The Walking Dead #121 | Image Comics | Robert Kirkman, Charlie Adlard, Stefano Gaudiano, Rus Wooton, and Cliff Rathburn

The return of The Walking Dead to television airways didn’t ease the dull, aching hunger for Robert Kirkman’s wonderful slice of apocalyptica. Rather, it made me crave it even more, especially since “All Out War” has been one massive cliffhanger after another. It’s been a fantastic, exhausting, and bloody journey for Rick and the survivors as we’ve seen Negan go from Glenn-killing Governor clone to Andrew Dice Clay-meets-Henry Rollins with a murderous streak. Things are not looking good for our heroes after the volley of grenades Negan’s men rained upon them last week, and this week finds them licking their wounds. Yet, as is the case with so many The Walking Dead issues, just when you think it’s going to be nothing but table-setting, the other shoe drops and shit hits all types of fans. So, go ahead and thank your lucky stars for the book’s bimonthly schedule, then sink your teeth into another heaping helping of undead goodness. You’ve earned it.

Comic Book Day: Pull List for Februay 5th, 2014

cbd-featured

by on February 5, 2014

Chances are that you’re probably still reeling from the news that Jeremy Irons will be playing Alfred and Jesse Eisenberg will be playing Lex Luthor in 2016′s Batman vs. Superman vs. Kramer vs. Kramer vs. Predator, but why bother yourself with something that’s two years away when you can revel in the bountiful treasures of Comic Book Day? This week’s pull list is great for you as a reader, bad for you as someone who can make sound financial decisions, and just okay if you’re neither of the above.

Top Picks

msmarvel01

Ms. Marvel #1 | Marvel Comics | G. Willow Wilson and Adrian Alphona 

Excerpted from Eric Diaz’s full review:

The all-new Ms. Marvel has had a lot of pre-publicity, not only because it’s a new ongoing series featuring a female lead, still sadly a rarity for mainstream superhero comics, but also an ongoing series featuring a young Muslim character, which may very well be a first for a major publisher. While the first issue of Ms. Marvel doesn’t break any new storytelling ground in terms of how superhero stories are told, it is nevertheless a total delight to read. Writer G. Willow Wilson, author of the Vertigo graphic novel Cairo, is both a woman and Muslim, so she’s the perfect person to bring this character to life with an authentic voice.

Just on a pure storytelling level, Ms. Marvel #1 channels old school sixties Marvel in the best possible way. The first six pages introduce not only [our heroine] Kamala [Khan], but her friend Nakia, her older brother, her parents, and the annoying popular kids at school, Zoe and Josh, all quickly and efficiently. You immediately know just about everything you need to know about all these characters with just a few choice words and phrases. This comic offers pretty much everything you could want from a modern superhero book. It’s fun without being dumb, has a light breezy air to the writing, and more than anything, the storytelling is efficient. In this era of long, drawn out stories, here we are presented with an origin story that takes place all in one brief issue. This is why the book harkens back to classic Stan Lee for me, but with a modern touch; much like Amazing Fantasy #15 back in 1962 told Spider-Man’s origins in a brief 15-page story, this does the same in only a slightly longer length of time. Oh, we still don’t know how Kamala got her powers exactly, but regardless of what the answer is, we got all the basics we need to know in this first issue.

People say they want diversity in comics; Well, time to put your money where your mouth is and support this book. Not only is Ms. Marvel a book with good intentions, it’s also well done enough that it stands on its own regardless. It’s just a well done superhero comic, period, and my hope is that fans will rally behind this one.

The Fox #4 | Red Circle Comics | Dean Haspiel and Mark Waid

In case the dynamic duo of Haspiel and Waid wasn’t enough to get you onboard with Red Circle’s recently revived The Fox, then perhaps this will: Do it already. Seriously, just do it. Whether you realized it or not, The Fox has quietly become one of the most consistently entertaining superhero books on the market, expertly balancing its humorous, laugh-a-minute tone with creative characters, frenetic action sequences, and a sense of high adventure that simply cannot be phoned in. When The Fox is at its best, it plays out like a spiritual successor to books like The Tick, managing to simultaneously skewer and celebrate the things we love about the superhero genre. Issue #4 finds us in the middle of a melee maelstrom in Diamond World, where the Fox and his crime fighting cohorts must battle against a mind-controlled, axe-wielding king and a meddlesome Druid, and find a way home from this multifaceted, laser-cut realm. It’s a rollicking, immensely enjoyable issue with delightfully over-the-top artwork and quippy dialogue galore that manages to entertain without wearing out its welcome. Throw in a The Shield back-up story as well, and The Fox #4 is just gravy.

Red Light Properties | IDW Publishing | Dan Goldman

The supernatural spectres and occult occurrences in Dan Goldman’s Red Light Properties aren’t the darkest thing contained in the trade paperback’s pages. Rather, it’s the personal demons and relationships that plague Jude Tobin and his family that forces us as readers to look into the mirror and see a bit of Jude in ourselves. Goldman’s long-running webcomic has been re-edited, re-colored, re-lettered, and re-scripted thanks to the fine folks at IDW Publishing, who have collected it in physical form for the first time ever in a trade paperback that boasts 20 never-before-seen pages. Red Light Properties is a whip smart, pitch black comedy that pulls few punches and offers up a slew of supremely memorable, highly dysfunctional, yet surprisingly realistic characters. If you can look past the fact that they spend a good deal of their time dealing with the supernatural, the Tobins feel like people you know, which is a testament to Goldman’s ability as a storyteller. From his eye-catching artwork to his innovative panel design and his unique character designs, Goldman’s book is a visual feast that spirits the reader away to the darker side of Miami, one which you’ll be reluctant to leave. Life, death, and real estate — is there anything else you need? Yes, and the answer to that is a shiny new copy of IDW’s Red Light Properties.

Comic Book Day: Pull List for January 15, 2014

cbd-featured

by on January 15, 2014

Mother of Box, you guys! Can you believe the cavalcade of comic book-related news coming out this week? New details about Fox’s Gotham series, the Constantine pilot getting greenlit at NBC, Peter Parker returning to Amazing Spider-Man from beyond, Vertigo announcing its Vertigo Quarterly: CMYK anthology, Johnny Depp being eyed for Doctor Strange (or not), Batman vs. Superman and Justice League potentially filming back-to-back, Michael Douglas playing Hank Pym in Ant-Man, and Darklight coming from Archaia — and it’s only Wednesday?! Sounds like we all need a break from the swirling eddy of the 24-hour news cycle, and what better way to kick back and relax than with a heaping helping of brand new comic books? This week’s pull list will set you straight in no time, so take a moment to soak up the majesty of this week’s book bounty.

Top Picks

curse01

Curse #1 | BOOM! Studios | Michael Moreci, Tim Daniel, Riley Rossmo, Colin Lorimer

Holy shit, you guys. This book. Go out and read this book right away. There’s a ton of killer books out this week, but believe me when I tell you that Curse #1 is not to be trifled with. Michael Moreci and Tim Daniel have crafted a gruesome, gripping, gritty little series that reads like a blend of Fargo and Brotherhood of the Wolf in all the right ways. A horror story for the modern age, Curse puts us in the shoes of Laney Griffin, a former football star injured in his prime and desperately looking for options to finance his leukemia-stricken son’s increasingly expensive treatments. For weeks, an elusive murderer has been stalking the forests around his sleepy, rural, snowbound community leaving no clues apart from eviscerated corpses in its wake. With a bounty on the killer’s head, Laney takes matters into his own hands, but what he catches is more than he bargained for: a werewolf. With the clock ticking both until the lycan transforms again and on his son’s life, survival is paramount, and Laney must look inside himself to see just what he is willing (and able) to do.

Artistically, this book is a fever dream of murder, regret, and tension, thanks to the killer one-two punch of Riley Rossmo (Drumhellar) and Colin Lorimer (UXB). Moreci and Daniel’s script pulls you in, but its the artwork that gives the book its uniquely creepy, unsettling atmosphere and draws you deeper and deeper into this mysterious little patch of earth they’ve carved out. Smart, savvy, and horrific, Curse #1 is shaping up to be one of the must-read mini-series of 2014. Don’t get caught sleeping on this one, or you’ll find yourself howling at the moon in regret with nary a lycanthropic power to show for it.

Skyman-1-Cover

Skyman #1 | Dark Horse | Joshua Hale Fialkov, Manuel Garcia, Bit, Marta Martínez, Nate Piekos

Emerging from the wake of Captain Midnight’s disappearance is Skyman, a brand new superhero series from the evil geniuses over at Dark Horse, who have tapped Joshua Hale Fialkov (The Bunker, Cataclysm) to pen a surprisingly prescient story that touches on topics like drone warefare, racial politics, and, of course, rocket-powered ass-kicking. Having recently had his ass handed to him by Captain Midnight, the previous Skyman spiraled into a vicious, racist, rage-and-alcohol-fueled outburst that left one innocent man dead, and the United States government with a veritable P.R. nightmare on their hands. They need a new candidate for their Skyman initiative, one that will inspire the people and dodge the allegations of racism brought on by the last Skyman. So, with that chip on their shoulder, they turn to US Air Force Sgt. Eric Reid, a wounded veteran who is struggling to reintegrate himself to civilian life.

The Skyman initative enlists capable, elite soldiers from across the country and equips the with high tech exo-suits that grant them the ability to fly, enhanced strength, and superior healing abilities. In short, they’re meant to be the ultimate weapon to protect the United States and its interests. With the ability to manually override the Skyman suits using a tablet computer, it’s difficult not to draw parallels with the current U.S. drone program that has dominated headlines over the past several months. As Skyman, Reid is a soldier and capable of making his own decisions based on his own set of morals, but as we see in the book, he can easily be taken over remotely and used for whatever purposes his handlers deem fit. On the one hand, it’s a fail-safe in case the pilot goes rogue or something goes wrong, but on the other hand, it’s also scary to think that Skyman is essentially a drone strapped to a person.

Fialkov has crafted a compelling first issue that is a marked departure in tone from Captain Midnight, but a welcome one nonetheless. Eric Reid is the most physically intimidating, musclebound guy on crutches I’ve ever seen, but Garcia’s pencil work makes it work tonally. Bit’s inks and Martínez’s colors also go a long way towards smoothing out any of the roid-rage roughness of the artwork, and soon you’ll be too busy immersing yourself in the world of Skyman to pick any lingering nits. This is a terrific first issue, and a well-paced, exciting read full of quieter introspection, political intrigue, and soaring action sequences that will leave you thrilled, chilled, and thoroughly satisfied.

Velvet_03-1

Velvet #3 | Image Comics | Ed Brubaker, Steve Epting, Elizabeth Breitweiser, Chris Eliopoulos

Classic misdirection: It’s a hallmark of any good espionage story and, frankly, something I should have expected from Ed Brubaker and Steve Epting’s Velvet, yet somehow didn’t see coming until it was too late. As Velvet Templeton continues to retrace Agent X-14′s steps and track down his most recent asset, Brubaker takes us on a winding, careening thrill ride through Austria and Yugoslavia that leaves plenty of bodies in its wake. From breaking in to Yugoslavian prisons to infiltrating a high society soiree to comb for information, Velvet is a consummate agent, but also one who seems to be struggling with what being an agent means. Without spoiling anything, the issue reads like one is running at breakneck pace through a labyrinth only to round a final corner and run smack into the Minotaur. If you’re anything like me, you’ll hungrily devour this issue, then find yourself sadly wishing it was next month because you’re all out of pages to read.

Per usual, Steve Epting’s art is a thing of beauty. Whether it’s Velvet casing the room at a party, trekking through sewer access tunnels, or roundhouse-kicking a guard in the face, there’s a certain cinematic quality to the book that makes it a visual tour-de-force. Further adding to the aesthetic awesomeness is Elzabeth Breitweiser’s colors, which blend moody shadows with a simultaenously subdued and vibrant palette that manages to evoke the feeling of thumbing through photographs. If you’re not already on board the Velvet Express, do yourself a favor and catch up lickety-split, because after three short issues, I am hopelessly hooked and eagerly awaiting the capers to come.

Comic Book Day: Pull List for January 8, 2014

cbd-featured

by on January 8, 2014

It’s the first pull list of the New Year, you guys! What bold new comics will 2014 foist upon us? Is this the year we’ll finally get holograms popping out of our pages? Or Deadpool gets married? Wait, one of those is already coming true? The future is a great place, so far, and judging by this week’s pull list, we’re going to be a-okay as we forge boldly ahead into the great unknown that is Comic Book Day.

Top Picks

letter44-3

Letter 44 #3 | Oni Press | Charles Soule, Alberto Alburquerque, Guy Major, Shawn DePasquale

At long last, Charles Soule answers the question that has burned in our minds since the dawn of manned spaceflight: How do astronauts have sex in space? I won’t spoil it here, but it is by turns awesome and disgusting. What I will spoil is how damned good Letter 44 has been in its three short issues. A feather in Oni Press’ cap, Letter 44 continues to split its focus between the crew of the Clarke as they approach a mysterious asteroid to learn more about the looming alien presence in our galaxy and President Blades’ struggles on Earth to decide whether or not to go public with the existence of the aliens and Project Monolith. It makes for equal parts claustrophobic encounters and raw nerves with our motley spacefaring crew and political intrigue with a sci-fi twist amongst Blades and his cabinet. Expert pacing, eye-catching artwork, and vibrant colors make Letter 44 one of the books I look forward to most each month, and it’s only getting better. The only thing that leaves something to be desired is the lettering. No, not the lettering. Maybe just the guy doing the lettering. Seriously, who would ever hire that guy?

blackwidow1

Black Widow #1 | Marvel | Nathan Edmonson, Phil Noto, Clayton Cowles

For my money, Natasha Romanov is one of the most enjoyable, albeit underserved characters in the Marvel Universe, so you can imagine my delight when I awoke to find a copy of Black Widow #1 just waiting to be read. Beautiful, mysterious, and deadly – issue #1 of Black Widow is a lot like Ms. Romanov herself. Marvel has enlisted Nathan Edmonson (Grifter, Who is Jake Ellis?) to handle the declassification of Black Widow’s story, and the first issue definitely sets the tone for the series as we follow Natasha on her ongoing quest to atone for the atrocities she committed while working as an agent of the KGB. Taking us from Berlin to New York to Dubai in the span of a single issue, Edmonson’s pacing is spot on and he strikes a great tonal balance between Natasha’s cold demeanor, her introspective side, and moments of subtle humor that make the book a pleasure to read.

Art-wise, Black Widow #1 is a visual feast. Phil Noto’s lush artwork has a gauzy, cinematic quality that makes you feel like you’re living one of Natasha’s memories or trying to sift through the half-truths and obfuscations she’ll give you. Yet, in spite of that, Noto manages to deliver some bonecrunching action sequences that will leave you pumping your fist and champing at the bit for more. This is a tremendous first issue and Marvel is wisely following up with issue #2 on January 22nd. That doesn’t make me any less impatient to get my hands on another issue of this terrific new series, but it is definitely a light at the end of the tunnel. Or maybe that’s a laser sight.

shaolincowboy4

Shaolin Cowboy #4 | Dark Horse | Geof Darrow and Dave Stewart

Honestly, I’m speechless after reading Geof Darrow’s jaw-dropping, ass-kicking, blood-soaked finale to Shaolin Cowboy. When I spoke with Darrow about issue #1, I was impressed, but I figured it was going to get a bit talkier as the book progressed. I’ve never been happier to be wrong. A good 98 percent of this issue has no dialogue. It’s just the Shaolin Cowboy slowly chopping, punching, and kicking his way through a horde of dessicated, flesh-hungry zombies with some of the most kinetic and visceral artwork I’ve seen in a while. Despite the lack of comic book-y onomatopoeia, you can hear the moans of the zombies, the splatters of blood, the sounds of the Cowboy’s fists turning decaying flesh into decaying pulp, all of which makes for a grisly good time. As if the artwork weren’t enough of a marvel, Dave Stewart’s colors make the issue pop off the page and Darrow’s innovative panel layouts make Shaolin Cowboy a must-buy for anyone heading to their comic book store this week.

Comic Book Day: Pull List for November 6, 2013

cbd-featured

by on November 6, 2013

So, you’ve made it all the way to Wednesday, you’ve enjoyed the hell out of the Nerdist News premiere, you’re eagerly awaiting episode two, and you’ve got a hole burning in your pocket because it’s Comic Book Day. Well, do we have a pull list for you! From another thrilling installment of The Star Wars to villains running amok in the DCU to a futuristic slice-of-life story that you won’t want to miss, this week’s pull list is bursting at the seams with all manner of graphic art goodness.

Top Picks

The Star Wars #3 | J.W. Rinzler, Mike Mayhew and Rain Beredo

Look, if you aren’t already losing your mind over how much fun The Star Wars is, then do yourself a favor and buy issues 1 and 2, because this is a mini-series that is not to be missed. J.W. Rinzler’s adaptation of Lucas’ original Star Wars script has an uncanny valley factor without any of the inherent creepiness. It’s a lot like the Star Wars version of an Elseworlds tale, and it’s all brought to life by Mike Mayhew’s stunning artwork. His painterly quality coupled with Rain Beredo’s eye-popping colors make The Star Wars a sumptuous visual feast, and Rinzler’s script is the truffle salt on top. Our heroes are on the run with Princess Leia in tow and the Empire is in hot pursuit. Exposition is deftly doled out across expertly choreographed action sequences and familiar characters make an appearance. Namely, the droids we’ve all been looking for. And get this – R2 is a mouthy little so-and-so. I know, right? But, don’t take my word for it. Put this issue on your pull list today and thank me later.

Forever Evil #3 | Geoff Johns, David Finch, Richard Friend

I’ll be the first to admit that “Trinity War” captured my imagination hook, line, and sinker, and now I’m hopelessly caught up in the story, eagerly awaiting each new installment to find out just what the murderous, bizarro versions of the Justice League are up to. Last issue concluded with a thunderous confrontation between Ultraman and Black Adam, and it picks up right where it left off, alternating between several different story threads and making sure to balance the expository, plot-propelling dialogue with bursts of kinetic, hyperviolent action. One panel in particular during the Ultraman/Black Adam fight will make you grateful to have dental insurance and possibly leave you cringing for hours after the fact. Geoff Johns wisely doesn’t drop too much narrative plot-hammering into his script, finding a nice balance between action and story, but where he most succeeds is in his choice of characters. It is the unlikeliest group that is poised to save the day and I for one cannot wait to see how it all plays out, especially when it’s rendered so wonderfully by artists David Finch and Richard Friend.

Alex + Ada #1 | Jonathan Luna and Sarah Vaughn

Writer/artist Jonathan Luna (Spider-Woman, Girls, The Sword) and writer Sarah Vaughn (Sparkshooter) have something special on their hands with the debut issue for their new monthly Image Comics series Alex + Ada. Set in the not-too-distant future, most technology is automated, controlled by an implanted chip that relays your thoughts and brainwaves to your television, lights, and most other appliances. Artificial intelligence has become widely used and is relied on heavily by the consuming populace. With the exception of one horrific incident in which an A.I. gained self-awareness and murdered hundreds of people, A.I. and personal androids have become commonplace. Hell, some people even use them for sexbots.

Our hero, Alex, is a 27 year-old young professional who lives a pretty normal, humdrum life. Like the technology he relies on, his life seems to be automated. He has friends and can hold down a job, but he is largely unfulfilled, partially due to a breakup he still isn’t over, seven months later. When his birthday rolls around, he can’t seem to see the forest for the trees when his friend Isabel displays romantic interest in him; he is stuck in a perpetual fog. As I mentioned before, some people use androids for sexbots — Alex’s grandmother, for one. It isn’t too long before Alex finds himself in possession of one – a pretty-looking female model. Issue #1 does a tremendous job of setting the stage for what’s to come, a slice-of-life-meets-sci-fi story that feels human and grounded despite its futuristic subject matter. There’s a real Chobits vibe to issue #1, albeit with fewer boob-induced nosebleeds, and an undeniable charisma to the book that already has me craving issue #2.

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

cbd-featured

by on October 23, 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.
