The Geeky Brummie Pull List – 2000AD – 2nd June

0206NCBD2021

The Geeky Brummie Pull List with 2000AD Prog 2234

Not many comics on my Pull List this week but my favourite ape, Noam Chimpsky, returns to 2000AD in his own solo series so that instantly warrants Comic of the Week status. Five new comics make it in to our On The Radar section, including the start of Batman: The Adventure Continues Season 2 and you should definitely check them out.

In Meanwhile… I apologise for not getting all my reviews done this week.

Now on with the comics…

 

2000AD2234

Title: 2000AD

Issue: 2234

Publisher: 2000AD/Rebellion

Written by Chris Weston, Gordon Rennie, Lawrence Rennie, Rory McConville, Dan Abnett and Ken Niemand : Art by Chris Weston, Boo Cook, Dan Cornwell, Richard Elson and PJ Holden : Coloured by Len O’Grady and Chris Blythe : Letters by Annie Parkhouse, Simon Bowland and Jim Campbell

Incredible SF action from the Eisner-nominated UK anthology! Four new stories start in #2234 – vengeance is in the air in Judge Dredd: ‘Now That’s What I call Justice’; super-intelligent ape Noam Chimpsky gets his own series in Chimpsky’s Law: ‘The Talented Mr Chimpsky’; spinning off from the Regened issues, interdimensional investigators Department K plunge into ‘Cosmic Chaos’; and Cyd is back and heading deeper into the universe in Book Two of The Out. Plus fantasy thriller Feral & Foe comes to its fiery finale!

Following last weeks Regen issue 2000AD is back to its regular programming with four new strips starting this week. Aside from the Dredd story written and illustrated by Chris Weston, the main reason this is my comic of the week is the return of Noam Chimpsky. This time Noam is the star of his own spin off strip and I hope it’s the beginning of a regular slot for my favourite ape. Noam endeared himself to me during his appearances in the main Dredd strip and Niemand and Holden injected so much life into him he quickly became one of my favourite characters to ever appear in the Prog. The splash page is magnificent and if  you’re not onboard for Noam’s adventures you’re probably suffering from a major thrill-sucker infestation.

The Immoral Hulk #47

Marvel Comics

Written by Al Ewing : Art by Joe Bennett : Cover by Alex Ross

Heroes Reborn #5

Marvel Comics

The Nice House On The Lake #1

DC Black Label

Written by James Tynion IV : Art by Alvaro Martinez Bueno : Coloured by Jordie Bellaire

Everyone who was invited to the house knows Walter-well, they know him a little, anyway. Some met him in childhood; some met him months ago. And Walter’s always been a little…off. But after the hardest year of their lives, nobody was going to turn down Walter’s invitation to an astonishingly beautiful house in the woods, overlooking an enormous sylvan lake. It’s beautiful, it’s opulent, it’s private-so a week of putting up with Walter’s weird little schemes and nicknames in exchange for the vacation of a lifetime? Why not? All of them were at that moment in their lives when they could feel themselves pulling away from their other friends; wouldn’t a chance to reconnect be…nice?
With Something Is Killing The Children and The Department of Truth, James Tynion IV has changed the face of horror in modern comics – now get ready for his most ambitious story yet, alongside his Detective Comics partner Álvaro Martínez Bueno!

Apologies

There should have been a bunch of reviews this week including a look at the recent Zack Snyder’s Justice League blu-ray but even with a bank holiday time got away from me and I’ve still to finish these reviews.

Don’ t Look At That, Look At This

To distract you from the above take a look at this preview panel from the next issue of The Swamp Thing which features art from the awesome John McCrea in a story that also features the Hellblazer himself, John Constantine.
