The Geeky Brummie Pull List – What’s The Furthest Place From Here? – 12th January

The Geeky Brummie Pull List with What’s The Furthest Place From Here?

A relatively quiet week this time around with only one book on the Pull List. The latest issue of What’s The Furthest Place From Here is our comic of the week. We also have three new first issue comics to look out for On The Radar from Image, Vault and Marvel Comics. And MEANWHILE… returns to Action! this week.

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:What’s The Furthest Place From Here?

Issue: 3

Publisher: Image Comics

Written by Matthew Rosenberg : Art By Tyler Boss

DOUBLE-SIZED THIRD ISSUE!The gang finds a clue about Sid’s disappearance, but it’s not what they hoped for. And sometimes a cozy home, a cup of cocoa, and a slice of raccoon pie aren’t as kind as they seem. Time to fight some Grown-Ups!

I’m so invested in this book. So much is happening and we appear to have only scratched the surface of what is going on. Rosenberg seems to really thrive when working with Boss and this book is just as compelling as 4 Kids Walk Into A Bank.

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

 

Rain #1

Image Comics

Written by David M. Booher and Joe Hill : Art by Zoe Thorogood

THE FIRST IN CHRIS RYALL & ASHLEY WOOD’S NEW SYZYGY PUBLISHING IMPRINT LINE OF TITLES AT IMAGE COMICS!

On a seemingly normal August day in Boulder, Colorado, the skies are clear, and Honeysuckle Speck couldn’t be happier. She’s finally moving in with her girlfriend Yolanda. But their world is literally torn apart when dark clouds roll in and release a downpour of nails—splinters of bright crystal that shred the skin of anyone not safely under cover. RAIN makes vivid this escalating apocalyptic event, as the deluge of nails spreads across the country and around the world, threatening everything young lovers Honeysuckle and Yolanda hold dear.

So begins a gripping 5-issue presentation of New York Times bestselling author JOE HILL’s acclaimed novella, adapted by rising stars DAVID M. BOOHER (Canto), ZOE THOROGOOD (The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott), and CHRIS O’HALLORAN (Ha-Ha).

 

We Ride Titans #1

Vault Comics

Written by Tres Dean : Art by Sebastián Piriz

Kit’s tenure as a Titan rider gets off to a bad start as a mysterious mech attacks New Hyperion. Plus: waffles.

 

The Death of Doctor Strange: Bloodstone #1

Marvel Comics

Written by Tini Howard : Art by Ig Guara : Cover by David Nakayama

ELSA AND THE FAMILY BLOODSTONE! Who better to defend Earth from magical invaders than monster hunter ELSA BLOODSTONE?! Elsa is the best there is at what she does – tough, skilled and clever enough to handle any problem…except her brother, CULLEN. They have issues, and they’ll have to put them aside not only to protect Earth but also to welcome the latest addition to the Bloodstone clan: their long-lost SISTER! Her awesome set of powers and unique Blood gem have placed a target on her back, and the worst horrors from beyond this realm are on the hunt.

Back In (Battle) Action!

Britain’s most controversial comic is back with two of Britain’s most controversial creators!

When it first appeared on newsagents’ shelves in 1976, Action caused a moral panic as newspapers, MPs, and self-appointed moral guardians fell over themselves to condemn its no-holds-barred, anti-authoritarian, action-packed pages!

Now Action and its groundbreaking war-themed stablemate Battle are back for a brand new 96-page hardcover original graphic novel – due for a Direct Market release in June, followed by a bookstore launch in September.

Battle Action Special will feature eight brand new stories written by Garth Ennis, the twisted mind behind The Boys and Preacher, reviving some of the most popular strips from these two groundbreaking 1970s comics.

Joining him and a host of comic book artistic talent, with his first comics work since the end of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, will be artist Kevin O’Neill, whose entire style was once deemed wholly “objectionable” by the Puritans of the Comics Code Authority in America.

O’Neill is the artist on the revival of Kids Rule OK, writer Jack Adrian and artist Mike White’s series about kids running amok in a post-apocalyptic landscape that was so infamous it helped lead to Action being pulled from shelves!

Behind a brand new cover by Andy Clarke (Batman and Robin) and Dylan Teague (Madi), the Battle Action Special will bring the best of Battle and Action’s action-packed and controversial comics back to life in all their bullet-spraying and enemy-shredding action!

Take to the skies with artist Keith Burns and colourist Jason Wordie, and witness the air duel of the century as ace fighter pilot Johnny Red faces off against Skreamer of the Stukas.

Infamous German tank commander Hellman of Hammer Force bears down on American Colonel Glory Rider in Tunisia, drawn by the legendary Mike Dorey (Ro-Busters).

Blunt instrument of British Intelligence Dredger returns and takes no prisoners on the streets of 1980s London, courtesy of Watchmen colourist and Judge Dredd artist John Higgins, with co-colours by Sally Jane Hurst.

Take on the selfish but fearless Crazy Keller by Chris Burnham (Batman) and colours by Len O’Grady, and meet Nina Petrova, the scourge of the Eastern Front, with art by Patrick Goddard (Judge Dredd) and colours by Jason Wordie.

And roll out into Italy in the heat of 1944 with The Sarge as Ennis reunites with The Stringbags artist PJ Holden.
