The Geeky Brummie Pull List – Fight Girls – 20th October


The Geeky Brummie Pull List with Fight Girls

Only two books make it in to the Pull List this week. Firstly we have our Comic of the Week, Fight Girls, and then the next issue of The Trial of Magneto. This week we also have four new comics to look out for On The Radar including the latest issues of Bermuda and Not All Robots

In Meanwhile… we look back at the best of DCFanDome and a legends return to the world of Dredd.

If you want to send any comics or comic related events we should feature, feel free to reach out to me at keith@geekybrummie.com.

Now on with the comics…


Title: Fight Girls

Issue: 4

Publisher: AWA/Upshot Studios

Written and Illustrated by Frank Cho : Coloured by Sabine Rich

Ten hard-as-nails women face off in an ancient contest of champions where the winner truly takes all: the title of “Queen of the Galaxy.” To win the challenge each contestant must survive the hazards of the planet’s harsh landscape, the ferocious predators on and below its surface, and their fellow contestants. This edition of the contest has a twist: one of the contestants is an infiltrator who has her eye on something bigger than the prize. Who is she and what does she really want?

If you like Squid Game you’ll love this. This also features giant monsters and some incredible art, and I’ve been loving every issue. Cho is a master of the art form and his work is stunning her. Sabine Rich is also bringing some career best work to the colouring. This book is just unadulterated joy from cover to cover and it’s about time I put it up as comic of the week.



Title: The Trial of Magneto

Issue: 3

Publisher: Marvel Comics

Written by Leah Williams : Art by Lucas Werneck

JUDGE, JURY AND HEXECUTIONER! The truth won’t stay buried. Nor will other things… Who lurks in the shadows, and what do they know?

I’m enjoying this book much more than I ever expected. It’s a murder mystery that is doing things differently. With a jaw-dropping ending in the last issue I’m looking forward to seeing how this story will resolve itself. Excellent work from everyone involved.



On the radar this week some other comics not on the Pull List but well worth checking out:



Batman vs Bigby! A Wolf In Gotham #2

DC Black Label

Written by Bill Willingham : Pencils by Brian Level : Inks by Jay Leisten : Coloured by Lee Loughridge

Taking down the big bad wolf is at the top of Batman’s agenda, but the Dark Knight is the least of Bigby’s concerns. He has the pulse of more sinister forces at work when he takes to the streets to track down a magical book that’s gone missing from Fabletown!



Beyond The Breach #4

Aftershock Comics

Written by Ed Brisson : Art by Damian Couceiro : Coloured by Patricio Delpeche : Lettered by Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou

The origin of The Breach is revealed, and Samuel’s dark, bloody past along with it. But is it too late? Can The Breach be reversed? Or is this life the new normal for Vanessa, Dougie and Kai? With a group of inter-dimensional bounty hunters hot on their heels, this new life may very well be a short


Not All Robots #3

AWA/Upshot Studios

Written by Mark Russell : Art by Mike Deodato Jr. : Coloured by Lee Loughridge : Cover by Rahzzah

In the year 2056, robots have replaced human beings in the workforce. An uneasy co-existence develops between the newly intelligent robots and the ten billion humans living on Earth. Every human family is assigned a robot upon whom they are completely reliant. What could possibly go wrong? Meet the Walters, a human family whose robot, Razorball, ominously spends his free time in the garage working on machines which they’re pretty sure are designed to kill them in this sci-fi satire from Mark Russell (The Flintstones, Second Coming) and Mike Deodato Jr. (The Amazing Spider-Man, The Resistance).


Bermuda #4

IDW Publishing

Written by John Layman : Art by Nick Bradshaw

The epic conclusion is at hand… can Bermuda and her friends survive?! Can THE WORLD even survive?! The door between dimensions is finally open, thanks to the science of our world, and the sorcery of Bermuda’s. Now both worlds are threatened, and the only hope for either is the brave 16-year-old island adventurer known as Bermuda!


A Legend Returns

Within the intimidating walls of Iso-Block 1, a prisoner is scheduled to die after decades in isolation. But he has a tale to tell – one that may blow Judge Dredd’s world apart!

Master writer and co-creator of Judge Dredd, John Wagner, returns to 2000 ADin its anniversary year with a thrilling new Judge Dredd story: ‘The Citadel’

Drawn by Dan Cornwell (Rok of the Reds), with colours by Dylan Teague (Madi) and letters by Annie Parkhouse, the new story begins in 2000 AD’s 45th birthday issue, on sale in February.

’The Citadel’ takes Judge Dredd back to the events of The Apocalypse War, in which he led the desperate fight against the invading armies of the Sov mega-cities.

The story will also be collected in a 128-page paperback graphic novel edition in July 2022 (ISBN: 9781786185686), available from all good book and comic book stores, as well as online retailers and the 2000 AD webshop and app.

As the Apocalypse War rages, Judge Dredd leads a squad of Cadet Judges into battle – launching an assault upon The Citadel, where the invading Sov forces have set up base.

But now, 40 years later and on the day of his execution, former Cadet Judge Winterton will tell the truth about what happened during the war, why the mission was subsequently covered up, and reveal the secret that Judge Dredd himself has been hiding for the past 40 years.

‘The Citadel’ begins in 2000 AD Prog 2270, the landmark issue celebrating forty-five years of the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic. The special 48-page issue hits newsstands on 23 February 2022.

Matt Smith, editor of 2000 AD, said: “’The Citadel’ is a rip-roaring, unmissable story that will have readers on the edges of their seats. Serving up action and intrigue in the only way John Wagner can, and with Dan Cornwell providing some career-best artwork, it proves that even after forty-five years that 2000 AD and Judge Dredd can still deliver the goods.”

The first issue of 2000 AD hit newsstands in mid-February 1977 and Rebellion plans to mark forty-five years of groundbreaking comics with special collections, signing events, and online celebrations.
