On The Pull 17/12/2014

New comics are due to hit the shelves on Wednesday so here’s a look ahead at some of the books we’ll be picking up this week. To see what’s available at Paradox this week, click here.

Stewart R: Soooo...

Here comes Squarriors,
Here comes Squarriors,
Right down Devil's Due Lane!
The tails are fluffy,
The teeth are sharpened,
Brace yourself for blood and pain!
Clans are warrin', creatures a'clawin',
Get ready to see a fight,
The humans are gone, fuzzy mammals are here,
'Cause Squarriors comes tonight tomorrow!

Yup, the glorious art from Ashley Witter and an interesting survival premise from Ash Maczko made Squarriors an instant lock as soon as it become apparent that it would be available outside of its successful Kickstarter campaign. Admittedly the great start to Kurt Busiek's Autumnland: Tooth and Claw now gives Squarriors some top quality, animalistic competition, but they appear to be different enough at initial glance for there to be no danger of a repetitive feel. I'm giving three books a shot with their second issues, with The Kitchen, Drifter and Spider-Woman all having their sophomore efforts landing this Wednesday. Of those three, however, I'm only confident on Drifter remaining long term after a really enjoyable debut, though I remain open to the idea that the others might convince me of their longevity this week. Last to get a mention is the welcome return of Nathan Edmondson and Mitch Gerads' modern warfare series for Image, as a double-sized Activity #16 rolls into view after a year's hiatus and promises the special ops team is going to war, or perhaps war is coming to them!

Matt C: It not exactly a quiet week for me but then there's not any one title that I feel like giving a special focus on either. Maybe I've got a lot on my mind right now, like when I'm I going to get around to buying Christmas presents(?!), but I'm going to do my occasional lazy thing of listing what I'm getting on Wednesday with the implied understanding that most of these books (*ahem* AXIS *ahem*) have my full blessing:

Activity #16
Avengers And X-Men: AXIS #8
Bunker #8
Drifter #2
Manifest Destiny #12
Moon Knight #10
Ragnarok #3
Zero #13
