HERE ARE SOME ISSUES THAT WILL NOT DISAPPOINT.Creighton’s Recommendations… Saucer State #3
“Fans of Paul Cornell and Ryan Kelly’s Vertigo series would be forgiven if they were apprehensive about Cornell and Kelly resuming the series at a new publisher after a four year gap. Would they be able to retain the same spark while updating their tale of politics, trauma and aliens to an altered social landscape? Based on the first two issues, the answer is yes, they can. Cornell and Kelly have picked up their narrative without losing a beat, updating its context without neglecting any of the elements which made the original so compelling. Vertigo’s loss has been IDW’s, and reader’s, gain.”
Sif Journey into Mystery The Complete Collection
“How do you follow Kieron Gillen breakout tale of Kid Loki, Leah and milkshakes? With something (mostly) completely different. In the wake of Loki’s departure to gather his band of Young Avengers, Journey into Mystery shifted focus to a character who had much less experience being in the spotlight: Lady Sif. From the first issue, though, writer Kathryn Immonen demonstrated how remiss such past neglect had been. Her Sif was brash, fierce, compassionate, if, at times, a bit too headstrong. Nothing she couldn’t work her way out of, though. Immonen struck an engaging balance between the action and character beats, allowing room for enough humor to keep her Asgardian heroine relatable (Sif and Jane Foster bonding over the Thunder God’s occasional denseness was particularly memorable). These different tones were well rendered by Valerio Schiti, who provided the best art of his career so far. All in all, a delightful romp which ended too soon . . . “ Dean’s Recommendation... Secret Empire #9
“I have really been digging the main title of this event and last issue left us all in quite a worrisome state. After a rocky start, followed by some very solid middle issues, I am intrigued to see if the team can finish strong as we near the end.” 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.
