LOOKING FOR BOOKS TO BUY THIS WEEK?
LOOK NO FURTHER.
HERE ARE SOME ISSUES THAT WILL NOT DISAPPOINT.
“A new comic from Ed Brubaker, Sean Phillips, and Bettie Breitweiser. That really is all you need to know for this to be an automatic pull, but I’ll shed a little more light on the premise. Assigned with killing one person a month, an NYU grad student must figure out who to kill, and still keep a conscience in this crazy world. Brubaker himself described it as Death Wish meets Breaking Bad and 1970’s Spider-Man”
“After a first arc full of sprawling world building, Warren Ellis narrowed his focus for the second. The story grew more explicitly political while also developing its characters deeper. It made for fascinating reading, especially when combined with Jason Howard’s expressive artwork. What shifts will the third arc bring? You can never be sure with Ellis, though, it’s a safe bet that Trees will continue being the best Ellis book currently running. Which means, naturally, you definitely need to check it out . . .”
“Meanwhile, Shutter just keeps getting better & better, as each arc outdoes the previous. Keatinge’s scripts continue hitting poignant emotional notes, while Leila Del Duca’s art remains stunning page after page. Every chapter is striking, though, #18 is already on my short list of best single issues of the year. Don’t miss out.”
“Joelle Jones hit series is back! Mixing ‘Mad Men’ with ‘Dexter’, Lady Killer is a series brimming with gore, intrigue, and good old-fashioned family values. Not to mention gorgeous artwork by Jones herself, this is an issue worth checking out even if you missed the first mini.”
“Tim Seely has brought Dick Grayson back and thrown him into the deep end. Alone in a foreign land with an even harsher mentor than Batman, can Dick survive working undercover for the Parliament of Owls or will they break the man that grew out of Batman’s shadow?”
As I’m sure you all have noticed, the pull list page is no longer present. We here at Nothing But Comics have decided to combine this weekly with the discussion of which comics we are all buying for the week. Included below is the link of our personal favorite product guide. Don’t worry, this is not an advertisement; the website is not paying us anything to push it (not that we’d object!). Comic List just happens to be totally awesome. So check out that massive list and then come on back here to let us know what you are buying.
