The Pull List: BLOODSHOT REBORN #15, THE DARK AND BLOODY #6, CONAN THE SLAYER #1, and More

Howdy, Wednesday Warriors! It’s that time of the week again; time to storm the gates and bring home a fresh stack of new comics. Before you head to the shop, arm yourself with a few recommendations, and for you big spenders out there, we also have a complete list of this week’s releases. Our pull list has more Wonder Woman, more Bloodshot Reborn, the end of a great horror series, and the beginning of an awesome new Conan series. Life is good, folks.

Bloodshot Reborn #15

Bloodshot Reborn #15 from Valiant Entertainment

Bloodshot Reborn #15 from Valiant Entertainment

Written By: Jeff Lemire
Art By: Mico Suayan
Colors By: David Baron
Letters By: Dave Lanphear

Boy, that Mico Suayan can draw. It seems like Bloodshot Reborn gets better and better looking every month, if that’s even possible. Suayan’s detailed storytelling combined with David Baron’s lush colors make this title Valiant’s most beautiful book, by a long shot. It’s almost grotesque when you consider that all that beauty is used to show guys getting blown to pieces and utterly destroyed by a god-like character called Deathmate, but maybe that’s sort of what we love about this series. Jeff Lemire keeps us on the edge of our seats, for sure, and each Bloodshot Reborn seems to get crazier than the next. If you are not buying this comic every month, use that money you’re saving to see a doctor, because there is clearly something very, very wrong with you.

The Dark and Bloody #6

The Dark and Bloody #6 from Vertigo Comics

The Dark and Bloody #6 from Vertigo Comics

Written By: Shawn Aldridge
Art By: Scott Godlewski
Colors By: Patricia Mulvihill
Letters By: Clem Robins

Horror comics are harder to pull off than you might think. It’s not always easy to get the reader invested in the characters and the terrors they are seeing; often times it just descends into a gorefest (which is some people’s bag and that’s fine). This final issue of The Dark and Bloody solidifies that Shawn Aldridge and Scott Godlewski are masters of the horror comic craft. This whole series has been genuinely haunting, sad, and scary. It’s a story with no easy ending, if there’s really an ending at all. Aldridge is clearly one of most unique voices in comics right now and Godlewski can layout a page like John Carpenter can layout a film (brilliantly, in other words). This series did just about everything right and we’re sad to see it go, but here’s hoping this creative team reunites for something again in the future. The spirit of Vertigo Comics is alive and well in titles like The Dark and Bloody.

Wonder Woman #2

Wonder Woman #2 from DC Comics

Wonder Woman #2 from DC Comics

Written By: Greg Rucka
Art By: Nicola Scott
Colors By: Romulo Fajardo
Letters By: Jodi Wynne

If a comic has to be twice monthly, this is the way to do it. Greg Rucka is telling two separate stories—although they are clearly tied together in more ways than one—and it would seem that you could just follow one if you wanted. You don’t have to buy both, although when they are both this freaking good we can’t imagine why you wouldn’t buy both. DC’s Rebirth campaign has been solid, but Wonder Woman is the crown jewel. Rucka, Nicola Scott, and Romulo Fajardo deliver a perfectly paced, absolutely stunning issue that delves into Wonder Woman’s origin. The parallels between Steve Trevor and Princess Diana delivered throughout the issue make for one hell of a compelling read. Seriously, you won’t be able to put this thing down and when you finish it you’ll want to read it again. Rucka nails it. Scott is incredible. Fajardo is brilliant. This is DC Comics doing Wonder Woman right.

Conan The Slayer #1

Conan The Slayer #1 from Dark Horse Comics

Conan The Slayer #1 from Dark Horse Comics

Written By: Cullen Bunn
Art By: Sergio Davila
Colors By: Michael Atiyeh
Letters By: Richard Starkings & Comicraft

Dark Horse Comics has put out a lot of Conan comics and they have all pretty much been at least good. Most have been great, especially recently, and Conan the Slayer is keeping that winning streak alive. Cullen Bunn, Sergio Davila, and Michael Atiyeh deliver a fun, brutal issue of everyone’s favorite barbarian. Gory and violent, Conan the Slayer #1 is exactly what you want in a Conan comic. There’s some mystery, a bigger story unfolding, and at its center the one guy who would rather not be at the center of anything. If you’ve never read a Conan comics before, you’re safe to jump in here. Hell, you are safe to jump in anywhere, which is part of what makes Conan such a great character. His stories are loosely connected, at best, just a series of adventures that usually end in sex, death, and maybe a monster or two. If that doesn’t sound like a good time to you, we clearly have very different tastes in entertainment. Plus, if you wanna judge a book by its cover, just look at that freaking cover. Lee Bermejo, ladies and gentlemen. Round of applause, please. Conan the Slayer #1 is an A+ as far as we’re concerned.

 

Okay, that’s it for us this week. What’s on your pull list?
