Every week, a different Panelteer will give you a rundown of the comics they’re most looking forward to. Floppies, trades and omniboo are all fair game here. This week, Ali tells us what’s on her pull list.
So. *chumps on carrot* What’s on your pull list, doc?
Rat Queens #15 by Kurtis J. Wiebe, Tess Fowler, Tamra Bonvillain, and Ed Brisson (Image/Shadowline)
Jonesy #2 by Sam Humphries, Caitlin Rose Boyle, Mickey Quinn, and Corey Breen (BOOM! Box)
Imagine if Scott Pilgrim was about a teenage cupid trying to navigate the dangerous waters of high school politics. That’s Jonesy, and it could not be more in my wheelhouse. I love the manga-infused, high energy of the book. I love Jonesy and how brilliantly young and flawed she is. I love that there’s not-remotely-traditional romance. I love this comic, guys.
James Bond #5 by Warren Ellis, Jason Masters, and Guy Major (Dynamite)
It’ll be James Bond #1-5 if I’m being honest because I had no idea this was a comic that was happening right now. But I love James Bond and I dig Warren Ellis so this is kind of a no-brainer.
Power Man and Iron Fist #2 by David Walker, Sanford Greene, and Lee Loughridge (Marvel)
Black Canary #9 by Brendan Fletcher, Annie Wu, and Lee Loughridge (DC Comics)
Again, THE ART IN THIS BOOK YOU GUYS!! I love how this comic doesn’t look or feel like anything else on the shelves. It’s just so damn cool. And this month we get a Black Canary-Batgirl team up! Brendan Fletcher has quietly created these really fantastic corners of Gotham City in his comics, and I love that even with Dinah on the road we still get to see bits of Gotham Academy and Burnside.
Phonogram: The Immaterial Girl (Trade Paperback) by Kieron Gillen, Jamie McKelvie, Matt Wilson, and Clayton Cowles
Shame on you if you thought I could get through a Pull List article without mentioning Phonogram. Magic, music, split personalities, zines, and all of the best 1980s music videos from my absolute favorite creative team in comics.
