Pull List: Comics Coming Out 1/23/12

By / 01.23.13

It’s a somewhat slow week this week, but we’ve got reviews of DC and Valiant books, and a few number ones as well.

  • DC wraps up Blue Beetle, which we previewed last week, and also has the last issue of Minutemen. There’s also more Wonder Woman, Fables, Green Lantern, and the next-to-last issue of Hellblazer.
  • Marvel rolls out Uncanny X-Force and Young Avengers, and continues Punisher: Nightmare. They’ve also got more FF and a Marvel Masterworks collecting Doctor Strange.
  • Image has more Revival, Prophet, Bedlam, Chew, and Witch Doctor.
  • Dark Horse wraps up its Spike miniseries, launches The Answer, and has more of The Massive.
  • IDW has more Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Secret History of The Foot Clan, a book more than a few of you are recommending, launches Star Trek: Countdown To Darkness, Mars Attacks Transformers, more Judge Dredd, and apparently their My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic book has yet another printing.
  • And Boom! has more Peanuts and Steed and Mrs. Peel, and finishes up its latest Hellraiser mini.

And now for a few reviews!

Rise Of The Third Army
Green Lantern #16
Green Lantern Corps #16

Simon Baz is pretty rapidly earning the ring, and we don’t mean that in a plot sense. In a lot of ways, Green Lantern #16 makes clear what Geoff Johns is building towards with Baz: A character with Hal Jordan’s determination, but far, far less optimism in his ring. If Hal Jordan is all about the joy of being a test pilot and flying among the stars, Simon Baz is about dealing with the realities on the ground.

Similarly, Peter Tomasi is doing a great job of explaining why Guy Gardner wasn’t retconned out of existence. Gardner can be an annoying character in the wrong hands, but here, he’s a lot of fun and Tomasi pairs Gardner and Baz off quite well.

Also, as an admitted funny-animal hater, B’dg is a lot more fun than a smug squirrel that talks like Spock should be. If you’re not following these books, they’re worth picking up.

The New Deadwardians

Dan Abnett’s cleverly done supernatural murder mystery gets a trade paperback. The series is often described as “zombie Downton Abbey“, but in truth it owes a lot more to noir. Abnett’s plot is full of twists and turns, but it’s also a vividly rendered character study of Chief Inspector Suttle, a vampire driven simultaneously by a profound distaste with his own lack of humanity and a sense of duty towards the British Empire. I.N.J. Culbard’s spare art compliments the story well; it offers a degree of gore that’s matter-of-fact without being lurid, realistic without being beholden entirely to historical detail.

In short, it’s a great book from Vertigo, and it deserves a wider audience. If you’ve got room in your budget, pick up a copy.

Harbinger #8

Joshua Dysart’s run on Harbinger has been off-and-on to some degree, fairly similar to other books about misfit teenager superheroes. This issue stands out a bit because Dysart gets to explore the macho fantasy world of a bed-ridden teenager as part of the plot, supported by Lee Garbett’s solid art, and it’s by turn hilarious and a bit painful. You might find a bit of yourself in this issue.

X-O Manowar #9

Robert Venditti writes a comic book where an ancient Roman warrior accesses the private Internet of an alien race and then fights a bunch of aliens in New York. Granted this issue will have more weight if you’ve been following the book closely, but there’s nothing quite like an old-fashioned alien ass-kicking.
