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)
Power Man and Iron Fist #2 by David Walker, Sanford Greene, and Lee Loughridge (Marvel)
There’s no real reason for this comic to remind me of Unbeatable Squirrel Girl or Hellcat AKA Patsy Walker, but it does. It’s superhero BFF at its finest and it’s a joy to read. Also, THE ART IN THIS BOOK YOU GUYS!!
Black Canary #9 by Brendan Fletcher, Annie Wu, and Lee Loughridge (DC Comics)
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.
