The GoD List Banner

Each and every week, I, “Secret Wars!” Henchman 21 and “Secret Wars II!” 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 January 21, 2015. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.

Yes, I know you’re all upset about the Marvel Universe ending or whatever, but you know what? Comics will go on, which is why we’re here to direct you to a bunch of comic books that are out this week that will continue to exist after any reboot or universe-ending cataclysm or what have you. Comics are great, whether they be spandex-fueled fantasy or realistic looks at the lives of actual people. Comics can be used to tell any kind of story you want, and if you’re feeling blue about a certain kind of comic not being to your liking, use this week to try something different. And that’s what we have to suggest to you on The GoD List!

March: Book Two Cover by Nate Powell

March: Book Two (Top Shelf Productions – $19.95, Kindle) It’s easy to forget that comics can be used to tell any kind of story imaginable. So often, we focus on comics’ ability to tell fantastical stories, and disregard comics that focus on real people. And it’s for that reason that I bring your attention to March: Book Two. March is the true-life story of Congressman John Lewis, one of the main voices of the civil rights movement of the 1950s. Book One covered Lewis’ youth in Alabama and the start of his battle against segregation and was one of the best comics of 2013. Book Two continues the story as Lewis becomes a national figure, even at the young age of 23. Lewis and co-writer Andrew Aydin have combined to tell a powerful story that is a credit to the whole medium of comics and that should be experienced by everyone. March is going to be a comic that you want to get into as many hands as possible.

Rumble #2 (Image Comics – $3.50) If there’s one thing I can say about Rumble #1, it’s that is was very intriguing. In the first issue of Rumble, we were introduced to Bobby, a regular schmo working as a bartender until one of his patrons comes in after having his arm cut off. Then Bobby ends up cutting a scarecrow in half before facing down demons and being rescued by the scarecrow he just split in half. So, there’s a lot going on in the first issue of Rumble, and I’m really interested to see what happens in the second issue. John Arcudi is a veteran at this point and knows how to make a comic that drops readers into the middle of a weird situation and expects the reader to keep, and I kind of like those kinds of stories. The art by James Harden reminds me of some of my favorite artists like Paul Pope and Nathan Fox, which is another plus for me. If you want a weird but fun comic this week, check out the first two issues of Rumble.

Millennium #1 (IDW Publishing – $3.99) For those people begging for the return of the late ’90s Fox TV show Millennium, here you go. Me personally, I’m holding out for a comic that shows the rest of season one of Drive. But I suppose this will have to hold me over till that happens.

Galaxy Quest: The Journey Continues #1 cover a

Galaxy Quest: The Journey Continues #1 (IDW Publishing – $3.99) Written by Erik Burnham with art by Nacho Arranz, this 32-page full-color debut issue continues the adventures from the 1999 sci-fi action comedy Galaxy Quest, which starred Tim Allen as actor turned intergalactic starship captain Jason Nesmith. In Galaxy Quest: The Journey Continues #1, the crew discovers that their previous heroics in outer space actually had dire consequences for another world. If you’ve been missing the Galaxy Quest gang (I know I have!), then this new series is for you.

Star Trek Planet Of The Apes #2 (IDW Publishing – $3.99; Kindle Edition) The first issue of Star Trek Planet Of The Apes was very Trek-centric and all set-up for getting the U.S.S. Enterprise crew to an area to have their unlikely crossover with the Planet Of The Apes universe. In this second issue, after the crew follows the Klingons through a transdimensional portal where they meet up with Apes‘ George Taylor, the human astronaut.
