The Geeky Brummie Pull List – Once and Future – 1st December

The Geeky Brummie Pull List with Once and Future

The wonderful Once and Future from BOOM! Studios takes our Comic of the Week title this week. Filling out the rest of the Pull List are the latest issues of New Mutants and  X-Men: The Trial of Magneto. We only have one new comic to look out for On The Radar and it’s the superb Human Target from DC Comics.

In Meanwhile… we take a look at the new Judge Dredd and Judge Death action figures coming from HIYA Toys next year.

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: Once and Future

Issue: 22

Publisher: BOOM! Studios

Written by Kieron Gillen : Art by Dan Mora : Coloured by Tamra Bonvillain

Will a shocking turn of events be enough to turn the tide of the entire world?
The war continues to rage across Britain as both Arthurs prepare to face one another for ultimate rule of the land. As Duncan, Bridgette, and Rose arm themselves for what’s to come, a surprising betrayal threatens even the most carefully laid plans!

It’s been a while since I last made Once and Future my comic of the week, but I’ve been enjoying this latest arc tremendously. It’s not lost on me that I’m loving a book about the battle for the soul of England. Gillen, Mora and Bonvillain continue to deliver an exciting and fun book every month, and it’s one I highly recommended you check out.

 

Title: New Mutants

Issue: 23

Publisher: Marvel Comics

Written by Vita Ayala : Art by Rod Reis : Cover by Martin Simmonds

FALL OF THE SHADOW CHILDREN! No more New Mutants. Now there are only shadows—and the beast that’s stalking them through infinity. Amahl Farouk executes his master plan—but is he the one in control?

This issue features possibly the most horrific cover of the series so far. Ayala captures the voice of the characters perfectly and the Shadow King is proving to be a most fearsome adversary. This series has been solid and I’m a huge fan of Rod Reis’ art – its so expressive and beautiful and is a prefect match for this series. I love it.

 

Title: X-Men: The Trial of Magneto

Issue: 4

Publisher: Marvel Comics

Written by Leah Williams : Art by Lucas Werneck : Cover by Valerio Schiti

DOUBLE, DOUBLE TOIL AND TROUBLE! A Wanda divided cannot stand……but there are many other things she can do. Chaos comes to Krakoa.

This book has been such a surprise. It wasn’t one I was going to pick up but after being slipped the first issue a while back, I’m hooked. There is so much going on here and after the last issue ending on a rather impressive cliffhanger, I can’t wait to see where we go from here.

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

 

Human Target #2

DC Black Label

Written by Tom King : Art by Greg Smallwood

Christopher Chance now has 11 days to solve his own murder. With almost no leads, it would seem the case of his own death has gone cold…but it’s about to get a whole lot colder. Enter Ice, former member of Justice League International, arriving at Chance’s office with some unexpected information…and mysterious intentions.

Hiya! New Dredd Figures

This news arrived in the Geeky Brummie inbox too late be be including in last weeks post, but it’s so good I’ve had to include it here, just in case you missed it. I love a good action figure and I’ve always missed out on previous 2000AD releases, so it’s great to hear a new range of figures will be launching next year. Here’s the official press release from 2000AD and HIYA Toys:

 

He’s the the ultimate lawman of the future at any size – Judge Dredd is heading up a brand new line of action figures in 2022!

Rebellion and Hiya Toys are proud to announce a new line of four-inch and six-inch articulated figures based on the world of Judge Dredd, from the pages of the bestselling comic British comic, 2000 AD!

Hitting stores in time for Judge Dredd’s 45th anniversary in March, this brand new range of fully possible figures draw on more than four decades of ground-breaking comic books set in the world of the classic character created by John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra in 1977.

The new collaboration begins with two 1:18 scale, four inch PVC action figures – the legendary lawman of the future, Judge Dredd, and his ultimate foe – the superfiend, Judge Death!

One of the world’s most famous comic book characters, Judge Dredd has been patrolling the mean streets of Mega-City for forty-five years and this dynamic and fully poseable figure of perfectly captures his iconic look, drawing on the artwork of legendary artists such as Carlos Ezquerra, Mick McMahon, Brian Bolland, Cliff Robinson and more!

With 19 points of articulation, he comes with shoulder and joint pads, chain and badge of office, boot holster, utility belt, and imposing helmet. He also comes to with trademark Lawgiver gun, which also fits into the holster on his boot, and Daystick club accessories.

Hailing from another dimension, Judge Death is the undead mass murderer who has declared that all life is a crime! Based on the iconic character design and art by co-creator Brian Bolland, as well as the work of artists Cliff Robinson and Garry Leach, the Judge Death figure comes with 18 point of articulation and a gruesome human heart accessory!

 

Available to order from retailers and to trade right now, and releasing in March 2022, both will come shipped in an attractive protective cardboard window box.

Dredd and Death will be followed in the spring by 1:18 figures of Death’s compatriots in carnage, the terror-inducing Judge Fear, in April (available to order from December) and the lord of decay, Judge Mortis, in May (available to order from January).

And no Judge is complete with his fully-armed ride – Judge Dredd’s iconic motorbike, the Lawmaster, will be available as a set to order from March and hit shelves in July.

In June, Hiya will launch the 1:12 (six-inch) line with Judge Dredd (available to order from February), Judge Death in August (available to order from April), Judge Fear in September (available to order from May) and Judge Mortis in October (available to order from June).

Jason Kinglsey OBE, CEO of Rebellion, said:

The fans have been clamouring for new action figures based on the incredible world created by Wagner and Ezquerra, so we’re delighted to be able to announce our partnership with Hiya Toys in time for 2000 AD and Judge Dredd’s forty-fifth anniversaries. Hiya Toys have a great track record for quality and the designs for these figures have blown us away, they look faithful to the comics and with great little details that show how much care and attention has even poured into them. There are so many amazing characters to choose from in this world, we can’t wait to see what’s next!
