The GoD List | July 8, 2015

Each and every week, I, “Not at SDCC!” Henchman 21 and “Ditto!” Empress Eve read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. I mean, it is possible… theoretically. Naturally, we look forward to some more than others. I mean, who doesn’t? So, let’s take a look into the depths of our pull lists, grab some comics, and we’ll let YOU know what the top books to look forward to are for the week of July 8, 2015. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.

Yes, it’s that time of year again, time for the biggest comics convention in America, even if the show has moved beyond being just about comics. But it’s okay, all comic conventions have moved past comics to one degree or another. Sorry, got off track there. It’s San Diego week, which means there are a lot of new series and big hardcovers out this week to entice buyers at the show and even those of us not at the show. In fact, it’s better for those of us not going to SDCC, because we don’t have to wait in line and then figure out how to lug all this stuff back in our luggage. So rejoice at the ease with which you can buy your comics, for it is truly a good week to celebrate comics. And celebrate we shall on this week’s The GoD List!

Marvel Ends The Universe With ‘Secret Wars’

Marvel Secret Wars

Marvel Comics announced last week that there are big changes coming to their world, with some of the first details about the upcoming Secret Wars #1, launching in May 2015. The 8-issue Secret Wars mini-series, which will be written by Jonathan Hickman with art by Esad Ribic, will officially start with a special #0 issue that will be released on Free Comic Book Day this year.

Secret Wars is the storyline that Hickman has been building to since he took over on Avengers and New Avengers back in 2012. The series starts with the merging of the regular Marvel universe and the Ultimate universe in what Hickman has been calling an “incursion.” This incursion has been getting foreshadowed for a while and will lead into the rest of the series, where the combined universe will become Battleworld, which is a call back to the original Secret Wars series from back in the 1980s.

Blake Northcott’s 3 Hottest #NCBD Picks For November 27, 2013

Guest NCBD Picks by Blake Northcott

Rat Queens #3 cover by Roc Upchurch, Image ComicsRat Queens #3 (Image Comics – $3.50) returns this month, with two different covers by Roc Upchurch. And each cover, upon inspection, perfectly reflects the tone of the series.

Cover A depicts the titular quartet of hell-raising women doing what they do best: wreaking havoc. Creatures are stabbed, blood flies, and Hannah, the Elven mage, conjures a little magic to top it off. Cover B is more of a pin-up, but Violet – the hipster Dwarf – isn’t your stereotypical comic book pin-up model. She’s filthy, bloodstained, and beaten from her most recent brawl, with a nasty gash marking her left cheek. The look on her face says it all; it feels like a derisive message to the status quo, breaking through the fourth wall. “No, I’m not a sex kitten in a spandex outfit…I kick asses for a living. Deal with it.”

East of West #3East of West #3
Written by Jonathan Hickman
Illustrated by Nick Dragotta
Colored by Frank Martin
Lettered by Rus Wooton
Cover by Nick Dragotta
Image Comics
Release Date: June 05, 2013
Cover Price: $3.50

Ain’t no way to be prepared when Death comes knocking. This gun slingin’ motif is central to Jonathan Hickman and Nick Dragotta’s East of West. In East of West #3, the sci-fi western, dystopian future brings forth an abundance of revelation and makes it clear that a reckoning is a brewin’.

Seeking revenge and bringing “himself” as punishment to those who betrayed him and murdered his wife, Death has just learned that his beloved is in fact alive, hidden, and under constant watch by the House of Mao. With his two powerful native witch acquaintances, Death adds to his already fearsome brood and forges a new mysterious alliance. Death is out for blood and will tear apart the world to get what he desires; but it won’t be easy. Conquest, War, and Famine — the other Horsemen of the Apocalypse — are on his trail, bringing along with them “The Message” deliverers known as The Chosen while leaving behind a dastardly destructive path.
