Pull List – Week 43

Black Magick special edition coverBlack Magick #1: Only one comic book this week, but it better be a good one. I think this new collaboration by Greg Rucka and Nicola Scott will be a welcome addition to my pull list. Detective Rowan Black works for the Portsmouth Police Department trying to solve the biggest mystery of her career…herself! Self-described as a “Gothic-Noir” with the tagline, “She was a dangerous dame, with a badge, a gun…and some serious tricks up her sleeve!” this seems like another great example of a strong supernatural comic. The comic book industry is inundated with comics set in a realistic world with fanciful aspects like Sex Criminals, Chew and the new book Paper Girls. Plus, the Gothic narrative is making a comeback, and I don’t just think it’s because of Halloween.
