The Pull List #118 – August 4 2017

batminaldiA weekly column in which Jake gives short blurbs about the comics he’s picked up that week. Reviewed in the order read, which varies but generally by increasing anticipation.   Disclaimer: he knows very little about art, at least not enough to considerably honor such tremendous undertakings, so…yeh, there’s that. 

 

Hawkeye #9

Kate’s missing persons case has lead her to an underground cagefighting ring, and now, with no backup and no weapons, how will Hawkeye survive?  After the scattered feeling of the last few issues, Thompson seemingly streamlines the plots a bit, giving a more cohesive nature to the book’s proceedings.  Romero’s art is a triumph, and nothing short of it.  The cage fight is wonderfully choreographed and expertly colored by Bellaire.  When the book is this good, it’s hard to go wrong with Hawkeye.

The Woods #34

BOOK OF THE WEEK

Writer: James Tynion IV/Illustrator: Michael Dialynas
Letters: Ed Dukeshire/DC Comics

The ramp up to the final battle continues.  Thirty-four issues in and we’re still getting great, eye-opening backstory.  All of the emotions on display are pitch perfect.

Way too good.

So what did you pick up this week? Agree or disagree with anything said here? Let us know in the comments.
