The Pull List: VENOM, MAESTROS, and BATMAN: WHITE KNIGHT

The Pull List: VENOM, MAESTROS, and BATMAN: WHITE KNIGHT

Greetings, Comic Fans! It’s Wednesday, also known as “The Best Day of the Week,” because it’s new comic book day. There’s a ton of stuff out this week, but don’t worry—we have a few recommendations to help you sort through the chaos. And for you big spenders out there, we also have a complete list of this week’s releases.

VENOM #1

Venom #1 from Marvel Comics

Written By: Donny Cates
Art By: Ryan Stegman with JP Mayer
Colors By: Frank Martin
Letters By: VC’s Clayton Cowles

Donny Cates and Ryan Stegman make one hell of a team. Venom #1 is superb; a dark, weird, and violent book that feels like an homage to the over-the-top insanity of ’90s comics. In its opening pages, a strange flashback, of sorts, Venom toys with your expectations, moving and flowing in exciting ways. Cates’ script is tight and smart, and Stegman is brilliant and a worthy successor to Todd McFarlane’s throne. Whether you’ve read a Venom comic in the past or not doesn’t matter; you can (and should) start here.

BATMAN: WHITE KNIGHT #8

Batman: White Knight #8 from DC Comics

Written By: Sean Murphy
Art By: Sean Murphy
Colors By: Matt Hollingsworth
Letters By: Todd Klein

The final issue of Batman: White Knight is a lot to unpack, which is probably exactly what Sean Murphy was going for. It’s the sort of book you read, put down, and then pick right back up again. The majority of the issue is an epic battle between the GTO and Gotham’s most sinister villains. Those pages serve as a fantastic showcase of Murphy’s art and furious storytelling. There are lots of panels featuring various Batmobiles flying through the air, whipping around corners, crashing, exploding, and burning up the place. It’s chaos, but it’s also perfectly choreographed. Then, there’s the denouement, which deserves multiple readings. It leaves you asking big questions and the answers aren’t always easy. In the end, Batman: White Knight might just be the Joker story to end all Joker stories. Hell, it might be the Batman story to end all Batman stories. This is a comic book we’ll be thinking about for a long, long time.

MAESTROS #6

Maestros #6 from Image Comics

Written By: Steve Skroce
Art By:  Steve Skroce
Colors By: Dave Stewart
Letters By: Fonografiks

Boy, that Steve Skroce sure can draw. Maestros is a gorgeous comic book overflowing with charm and gore. A massive battle between demons, monsters, elves, and wizards fill these pages with intense and graphic violence, which is all rendered in stunning detail. There’s also a crap ton of jokes, sarcasm, and good ol’ fashioned weirdness peppered throughout the issue. Characters are impaled, gutted, and cut to pieces while dishing out one-liners and quips. Maestros may be about the end of the universe and the death of all things, but it’s also a ton of fun. Reading Maestros is like playing Dungeons & Dragons while dropping acid and drinking wine from a box. It’s classless, brutal, and magical. You can’t help but fall in love with this series.

That’s it for us this week! 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.
