On The Pull 27/02/2019

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.

Andy H: This week my pull-list seems to be lacking regular ongoing titles and instead consists of new titles I'm 'just trying', miniseries and the odd one-shot. Returning for a second series is Punks Not Dead. Creators David Barnett and Martin Simmonds are back for more supernatural fun with Fergie Fergurson and the ghost of a dead punk rocker called Sid. It's all go in this second volume; on the run from the police, the Department of Extra-Usual Affairs, magpie monsters and a serial killer, it looks like the pair are in for quite a ride. The first series was a fun read and the art really popped, I can only imagine this new arc will continue in the same way.

Star Trek: The Q Conflict #2 earns a place on this week's pull thanks to the quality of issue #1. Not only does it bring together the four Captains and four crews of the various Trek franchises it also sees the return of some of the 'omnipotent' races they have faced in the past. Joining Q are the Metrons, the Organians and Trelane (I don't think it's ever been made clear where he actually hails from) who will pit the Federation's finest against each other.

On the lighter side of all things Trek, this week also sees the conclusion of the Star Trek Vs Transformers crossover. If nothing else, this series has scratched that nostalgia itch I sometimes get and was an excellent tribute to the animated series of yesteryear.

As new series go, I'm still on the fence with this re-vamped (no pun intended) Buffy series. Issue #1 didn't quite capture the voices of the characters in the way the Dark Horse series did and I'm uncertain about the new status of old favourites. I'm back for more but this issue could decide how long for.

To finish this week's haul, I'll be picking up the Captain Marvel: Braver And Mightier one-shot (in anticipation of the movie) and trying the second issues of Daredevil, Marvel Comics Presents and Invaders to see which, if not all, will become a regular fixture on my pull-list.
