The Pull List: SECRET WARS #9, MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS #0, INJECTION #6, and THE VIOLENT #2

Some folks call Wednesday “Hump Day,” but we—the dedicated, the elite—know it by another name. It’s “New Freaking Comic Day.” Surely, you brave Wednesday Warriors have already assembled a list of comics to purchase this week. But before you head to the shop, why don’t you arm yourself with a few recommendations and maybe try something new? For you big spenders out there, we also have a complete list of this week’s releases, and boy howdy there are a lot of books to get excited about.

SECRET WARS #9

SECRET WARS #9 from Marvel Comics

SECRET WARS #9 from Marvel Comics

Written By: Jonathan Hickman
Art By: Esad Ribic
Colors By: Ive Svorcina
Letters By: Clayton Cowles

Explaining exactly what happened in Marvel’s big event Secret Wars is no easy task. This much is clear, however: Secret Wars is one hundred percent Jonathan Hickman. This final issue is his swan song to the Marvel Universe, a culmination of his years writing for the company and the stories he crafted for them over the years. It’s confusing and strange and very, very big—all of which is Hickman’s calling card. It was said that this issue would mark the end of one era of the Marvel Universe and start a new direction, but it doesn’t exactly feel that way. The story in Secret Wars neither begins nor ends; it just sort of exists, which is maybe exactly what Hickman was going for all along. Esad Ribic does some fine work here, handling the mayhem and universal disintegration with skill and precision. Even when you feel lost and confused by the story, Ribic keeps you hooked with his gorgeous artwork. If you are a fan of Hickman, especially of his run on Fantastic Four, this book is a must read.

MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS #0

MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS #0 from Boom! Studios

MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS #0 from Boom! Studios

Written By: Kyle Higgins
Art By: Hendry Prasetya
Colors By: Matt Herms
Letters By: Ed Dukeshire

It’s Morphin’ Time! Okay, sorry, had to do that. Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers #0 is the first issue of BOOM! Studios new series, and it’s pretty damn good. While the Power Rangers have been floating around the comic book world for years, they have haven’t really received the big, monthly series format they really deserved. Not on this scale. Not like this. That’s all about to change as written Kyle Higgins and artist Hendry Prasetya jump head first into this updated version of everyone’s favorite color coordinated super team. It’s goofy fun, like the show, but also peppered with a seriousness that the rubber suits and plastic effects of television could never really capture. This is a comic clearly written for fans of the original series, and that is a very good thing (for most of us, anyway). It’s the original Rangers, the original villains, and the look and feel of one of the mightiest TV series of all time. How could it go wrong?

INJECTION #6

INJECTION #6 from Image Comics

INJECTION #6 from Image Comics

Written By: Warren Ellis
Art By: Declan Shalvey
Colors By: Jordie Bellaire
Letters By: Fonografiks

Injection is a one of a kind comic series. It’s vintage Warren Ellis—bizarre, demented, and strangely proper—and expertly crafted by Declan Shalvey and Jordie Bellaire. In fact, it’s the art that really sells this comic. If you jump in on this issue, it’s easy to see why Shalvey is a guy everybody is talking about. His storytelling and design are unique and beautiful, bringing a grace and structure to Ellis’ strange dementia. Visually stunning, expertly paced, and wonderfully weird, Injection #6 is a comic you absolutely must read. As an added bonus, it’s sure to ruin ham and cheese sandwiches for you forever. Seriously, you’ll never want to eat ham again. I used to love ham and I now sort of hate Ellis, Shalvey, and Bellaire for destroying its deliciousness for me.  You guys are jerks.

THE VIOLENT #2

THE VIOLENT #2 from Image Comics

THE VIOLENT #2 from Image Comics

Written By: Ed Brisson
Art By: Adam Gorham
Colors By: Michael Garland
Letters By: Ed Brisson

The Violent might be the ugliest and the most miserable and depressing comic I have ever read. It makes me sad and it fills me with despair. This is not some space opera or fantasy epic. It’s unflinchingly brutal and dark because it’s so damn real, and in the very worst ways. The world seems like worse place after I read an issue. The thing is, it’s also really, really good. Ed Brisson and Adam Gorham are doing amazing work in this comic. They want you to see the ugliness and the violence for what they are, and they do one hell of a job bringing them to life. The Violent #2 is bloody brilliant—literally bloody—and it’s a comic that fans of crime fiction will absolutely love. Sure, you’ll hate humanity after you finish it, but that despair is part of the appeal that draws you in… like a black hole. It’s the sort of darkness you can’t escape. And maybe deep down, we all want to see that, just for a little while.
