The Pull List: 9/17/2014


Must read comics of the week

Avengers

Avengers #35

Hmmmm, so much of what Marvel has been building to lately. Stark is in his new armor, Thor doesn’t have his hammer, Falcon is in his Captain America gear, and Steve is a wrinkly, scrawny mess. Do or die time? Maybe.

Criminal Macabre: Third Child #1

Cal MacDonald is one of my favorite comic characters. I get giddy whenever Steve Niles is able to crank out one of these characters, and Cal sounds like he might be in his darkest hour yet.

Spider-Man

Edge of Spider-Verse #2

Another alternate take on Spidey before the big team up. What if Gwent Stacy got bit by the spider? She gets a pretty cool costume apparently.

Jim Hensons Storyteller Witches #1

I couldn’t tell you how this is associated with Jim Henson, but come on, Jim Henson is awesome. This will be an anthology series recounting a number of different witch fables of all over the globe.

(I can answer that…’Jim Henson’s The Storyteller’ was a TV series aired in the 1980s as a UK/US co-production – it featured dark and sometimes frightening retellings of obscure European folk tales using a combination of live action and ‘Dark Crytal’ style puppets, all narrated by John Hurt! A second series focused on Greek myths. I loved it. – G-Funk)

Multiversity The Society Of Super-heroes #1

One of Grant Morrison’s Multiversity back-up series takes a trip to Earth-20 that is looking especially pulpy. We got a Dr. Fate looking very Rocketteer like and Abin Sur dressed like classic Alan Grant Green Lantern.

Oddly Normal #1

This looks like a Cartoon Network show about a young girl with pointed ears and naturally green hair, who’s mother is a witch from a magical land called Fignation.

Thor

Thor God of Thunder #25

Lots of stuff going on. Young Thor vs Frost Giants. Secret origin of Malekith the Accursed. The granddaughters of King Thor uncover a secret about old grandpa. And finally and most controversially, Thor deals with losing the hammer.
