The Pull List: STAR WARS, BATMAN AND THE SIGNAL, and EXTREMITY

The Pull List: STAR WARS, BATMAN AND THE SIGNAL, and EXTREMITY

Welcome, Wednesday Warriors! It’s the first New Comic Book Day of the year, so let’s start things off on the right foot. Before you head to the local comic shop, arm yourself with a few recommendations—add a new title or two to your list. And for you big spenders out there, we also have a complete list of this week’s releases. It’s a new year and a new you; make sure that new you involves comic books.

STAR WARS #41

Star Wars #41 from Marvel Comics

Written By: Kieron Gillen
Art By: Salvador Larroca
Colors By: Guru Efx
Letters By: VC’s Clayton Cowles

Kieron Gillen and Salvador Larroca had already done superb work in the Star Wars comic book universe, so we knew that their tenure on the Star Wars flagship title would be great. But we were not prepared for it to be this fan-freaking-tastic. Fast, fun, and perfectly toned, Star Wars is everything we love about the franchise. Gillen and Larroca are delivering one of the best Luke Skywalker stories we’ve ever read; given the rich pantheon of Skywalker material out there, that is saying something.

BATMAN AND THE SIGNAL #1

Batman and The Signal #1 from DC Comics

Written By: Scott Snyder and Tony Patrick
Art By: Cully Hamner
Colors By: Laura Martin
Letters By: Deron Bennett

The Bat Family has gone through a lot of changes lately. New characters have come into Bruce’s orbit and played a major role in the direction of the various Batman-related titles. Out of all these new additions, Duke has been our favorite. He’s a great character with a look and feel that is the polar opposite of Batman, which is a good thing. From his bright yellow suit to his heavy metal-loving attitude, Duke is like a shock of light into Batman’s dark world and that’s what we love about him. Batman and The Signal is a miniseries meant to establish Duke as a superhero and it does that in spectacular fashion. With a breakneck script from Tony Patrick and gorgeous artwork from Cully Hamner, Batman and The Signal isn’t some flash-in-the-pan series; it feels like the start of something special. We can’t wait to see where this series goes.

EXTREMITY #10

Extremity #10 from Image Comics

Written By: Daniel Warren Johnson
Art By: Daniel Warren Johnson
Colors By: Mike Spicer
Letters By: Rus Wooton

It’s a bummer that Extremity is coming to an end. It’s absolutely stunning, a visual feast that leaves our bellies and souls full month after month. There’s a moment in this issue when an airship crashes and that one page tells you everything you need to know about the visceral glory of Extremity‘s storytelling. No other comic book moves with this much energy and life. We’ll miss Extremity once it’s gone, but we’re gonna have a hell of a time riding this thing out until the bitter end.

Okay, that’s it for us this week! We hope 2018 is an awesome year of comic book reading for you. Check out the complete list of this week’s books below and let us know in the comments what you’re reading and loving these days.
