The Geeky Brummie Pull List – Good Boy – 9th February

The Geeky Brummie Pull List with Good Boy

After last weeks bumper listing we have a more modest selection for you this time around. We have two great books on the Pull List including the third issue of Good Boy from Source Point Comics. We also have two new  comics to look out for On The Radar from Image and Marvel Comics. In MEANWHILE… this week we mark the passing of legendary artist Ian Kennedy.

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: Good Boy

Issue: 3

Publisher: Source Point Press

Written by Christina Black and Garrett Gunn : Art by Kit Wallis

Flint heads to the Hellfire Disco to meet an associate who can help him find the man responsible for Jon’s death; Paolo Romano. This issue, everyone dies.

Okay, I realise this is just a role reversal reworking of John Wick, but it is done with such joy and verve that I just love it. I’m a sucker for anthropomorphic animal comics at the best of times, and this book is tickling my BoJack Horseman itch. Therefore, this mix of animal and human characters works beautifully, with each having defined, however occasionally cliched, personalities. There’s not much more to say about a book that just hits all the right spots.

 

Title: New Mutants

Issue: 24

Publisher: Marvel Comics

Written by Vita Ayala : Art by Danilo Beyruth : Cover by Martin Simmonds

NEW STATUS QUO FOR THE NEW MUTANTS! The New Mutants regroup in the aftermath of the Shadow King’s attack! What will become of Amahl Farouk? Why is Warpath…crying?! How many snikts can fit into one panel? What happens to the Lost when they find one another? All this and more in a single issue—plus the setup for the next big arc, a story too magical to be believed.

The New Mutants continues to plow its own furrow. Whist some of the other X-books get lost in the most recent earth shattering event, these younger mutants are dealing with the things that are most important to them – themselves and their friends. This book captures what it’s like to be a young adult, difficult enough for regular folks, but decidedly more difficult if you’re learning to live with a new set of powers. I love that is book can be joyous, sad, heartbreaking, violent, confusing, angry, jealous, afraid and more. Emotion is what lies at the heart of the stories being told here. Above all, this book reminds us all what it’s like to be human.

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

 

Secret X-Men #1

Marvel Comics

Written by Tini Howard : Art by Francesco Mobili : Cover by Leinil Francis Yu

SSHHH – IT’S THE X-MEN! When the Shi’ar Empire faces an unexpected threat, they must call upon the X-Men. Team co-captains Sunspot and Cannonball must lead Marrow, Tempo, Forge, Banshee, Strong Guy, Armor, and Boom-Boom on a secret mission to save Empress Xandra. Wait, those aren’t the X-Men. Aren’t those the mutants who lost the election?

Monkey Meat #2

Image Comics

Written and Illustrated by Juni Ba

The anthology series set on Monkey Meat Island continues with the unfortunate adventures of Haricot, a sweet young boy who falls victim to harsh bullying. When Haricot finally gets the power to assert himself, will he become a hero—or a monster?

Farewell Ian Kennedy (1932-2022)

This week we lost legendary artist Ian Kennedy, who has passed away at the age of 89. Ian was born in Dundee, Scotland on 22nd September 1932. He was taken on as a trainee illustrator by D. C. Thomson & Co, publishers of The Beano and The Dandy, in their Art Department in 1949. Ian then went on to work for over 70 years on many popular UK comics including Commando, 2000 AD and Dan Dare in The Eagle. His style is instantly recognisable and has adorned over 2000 comic covers.

Here are some examples of Ian’s incredible art to remind you just how beautiful his work was.

This is a huge loss for fans of UK comics and art in general and the whole GB team extend their condolences to Ian’s surviving family on this sad occasion.
