Indubitable Issues and Pull List (05/17/17)

LOOKING FOR BOOKS TO BUY THIS WEEK?  

LOOK NO FURTHER.  

HERE ARE SOME ISSUES THAT WILL NOT DISAPPOINT.

 
Josh’s Recommendation…
Luke Cage #1
“If there’s anyone I trust to be writing a Luke Cage solo series, its David Walker. There’s no better time for this series, not the least of which the awareness the Netflix show garnered for the character. I have high hopes for this title, and with Walker’s previous work on Shaft and the past ‘Heroes for Hire’ run, it’s sure to impress.”
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
Tyler’s Recommendation…
Wildstorm #4
“I really dig this series so far, even though I couldn’t exactly tell you what is going on save for some very covert shit. I’m comfortable placing my trust in the creative team and just enjoying the ride, and I hope I’m not the only one.”
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 Dean’s Recommendations…
4 Kids Walk Into A Bank #4
“This is the best comic you haven’t read. Wait… how have you not read this yet? Put down whatever mediocre book you are reading now and pick this book up! Matthew Rosenberg is a legitimate star and Tyler Boss shows why the phrase “Like a Boss” originated with him.”
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Royal City #3
“Yes, yes, everyone knows Jeff Lemire is great. Do I really need to recommend his book? Well, yes I do because Royal City is just that good.  This is currently my favorite comic book. There are two types of comics in this world; Jeff Lemire comics and everything else. This is the former. Good news though, there is room for both in the world.”
 
 
 
 
 

 

 
 
As we’re 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.

    Royal City is all I’m looking forward to this week. Kind of a stinky comics week.

    I’m half way caught up on the super fun Tyrion Detective Comics run. Thanks for the recommendation dudes. Double shipping sucks but Tim Drake, Cassandra Cain and Spoiler team ups are sweet (15 issues down 115? to go). Putting 4 kids on my list.

      1. “Sad day”
        Not if you are in the love it category. I’m seeing it tonight I’ll chime in after that. I find it very hard to believe that it is terrible. If people are either loving it or hating it and it is certified fresh on rotten tomatoes then that means there are more positive review then negative ones so more love than hate. Anyways can’t comment until I see it but I doubt I will be in the hate category.

        I’m jazzed out of my mind to see it tonight!

          1. Well, if you assume at least one major paper in every state reviewed the film, that’s 50 right there. New York City itself would’ve produced 3, plus the Village Voice. Print magazines (New Yorker, Entertainment Weekly, Vogue etc) add to that number as do all those websites which review movies. I don’t know what Rotten Tomatoes’ metrics for qualification are — for all I know our film reviews here get added to the total. Also, this film is in wide release internationally, so there are all those markets producing reviews . . .

            Personally, I take all these stats with a grain of salt. One or two in depth reviews from critics I respect are worth more than a statistic compiled by critics I am unfamiliar with. Or, how much inflation is going on? I’m sure Peter Travers’ Rolling Stone reviews count, but it’s been years since anyone took anything he wrote seriously. Are we giving equal weight to film scholars and that guy who does the 60 Second Reviews that I only see on TV screens in the back seats of cabs?

            1. Why shouldn’t we be giving equal weight? Perhaps your opinions line up with the scholars but what if my opinions line up with the 60 second reviewer? Everyone’s “opinion” of a movie has equal weight, it’s an opinion.

              1. I agree they should be given equal weight. I’m simply explaining why I personally don’t put much stock in Rotten Tomatoes & similar type sites . . .

                1. Oh, gotcha. Yeah I totally agree. I simply brought it up because we were talking about loving it or hating it.

                  1. I will add that I say terrible in the context of me being a big Alien to Alien 3 / Prometheus fan. Compared to an average horror SciFi movie I would probably say it was ok.

        1. I liked Prometheus. I had higher hopes for this. The trailer shows Aliens style level of action and the film doesn’t match the intensity of the trailer. If horror was the aim that failed miserably for me as well. I was bored out of my mind for the first hour at least. Slight spoiler… every character is a big dummy and I mean ALL of them. It’s tremendously annoying. There is also strange inconsistency in character actions. I was one of those people that used to think that Ripley had run her course after 3 movies (and should not have been resurrected) but I now know Ripley’s value. Scott originally intended to kill Ripley (but was forced not to). James Cameron all the way! Also, revealing mysteries like Darth Vader’s and Wolverine’s and the Alien’s origin is a bad idea. Mysteries should remain mysterious.

        2. Love Prometheus. Watched it back to back days in the theater and have watched the Blu Ray many many times at home. It never gets old on me. It is one of my favorites for sure.

    1. If i could get excited about a Venom movie, I’d be excited about this,but, well. In other news Sony hired someone with Spider-Man experience for the screenplay: the guy who wrote Amazing Spider-Man 2 . . .

        1. I didn’t hate it. I kind of enjoyed it but I always compare everything to previous editions. I liked the Tobey Spidey 1 the most (loved it) and all of the rest were ok or pretty good to me. Except spidey 3 which is terrible. Repetition is a peev of mine. I don’t hate remakes and sequels but I hold them to a higher standard. I feel something about them needs to be exceptional because so much is rehashed. The better the originals the more critical I am of what follows. Worse yet is that I look forward to sequels a lot even though I should know better. Prequels I’m pretty much realizing I hate though. Prequels are like having a built in spoiler. It’s great that you like Alien Covenant, I probably should have watched Prometheus again as a refresh first. Hey, I loved Terminator Salvation and nobody agreed with me on that so who cares … I love it anyway. Terminator motorcycles 🏍 😀

          1. I preferred the second Maguire Spider-Man – Molina’s Doc Ock was a huge improvement over Dafoe’s Goblin . . .

        1. “The Martian which is perhaps my favorite movie of the last decade”
          Bold statement and I totally agree. I would have to make a list of my favorite 10 movies of the last decade and then run a head to head tournament to really be able to tell you what my favorite was but the Martian would definitely be a heavy favorite. I absolutely loved it.
