On The Pull 02/01/2018

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 along with a full list of titles that will be available from Paradox Comics.

Matt C: A new year, a slightly rejigged look for On The Pull. Allow us to give you our personal picks before we reveal a full listing of what will be available in Paradox Comics, Poole (and your Local Comic Store of choice) - although note that UK NCBD will be delayed until Thursday due to the Bank Holiday this week!

Top of my first pile for 2019 will be, of course, Conan The Barbarian #1 from Marvel Comics. The franchise has been with Dark Horse for over a decade, and while the initial blast of Kurt Busiek/Cary Nord greatness was rather exhilarating, the property began to feel a little stale in recent times. Perhaps a return to the House of Ideas - which gave the Cimmerian a new lease of life in a different medium back in the 1970s - will reinvigorate the character once again? Putting Jason Aaron in the writer's seat seems like the smartest move as his work on a number of books - Thor in particular, but stuff like The Goddamned too - make him ideally suited for some swords and sorcery action.

To coincide, Marvel are turning the attention of their True Believers imprint to Conan, and I will always take the opportunity to remind you of the value for money these reprints offer.

Over at Image there's the return of Low from Rick Remender which has been absent for what feels like a long time but was a series that, after a slow start, had been building some real momentum (although if I'm honest I hope it's not one of those books that lingers past its sell-by date). DC have the finale of the latest run of Scarlet (and let's hope it doesn't follow its historical pattern of disappearing from view for ages) and the next chapter of Heroes In Crisis, Tom King's surprising and unique take on the blockbuster event book format.

A promising start to 2019, and as well with the aforementioned there's a lot more coming your way this week...
