Image Releases—November 14, 2018

Most of Pulp Nation reviews are comics from Image Comics.

That’s not just a personal preference for Image Comics. They’re the only company willing to share their excellent work with us.

Other companies would have us earn the right to review their comics. Well, not to be difficult but the Pulp Nation team has made an editorial decision to only review or promote books that are presented to us. Of course, that includes indie creators, keep those submissions coming!

We’re not trying to get free comics, I still buy a fair bit of comics (Hello there Sketchbook Comics!) and if I find it exceptional I will share my love for it via a review.

I can’t speak for creators who work with Image but I can tell you as a reviewer I’m very pleased with how they have treated us here at Pulp Nation.

At this point, I need to apologize to Image as offline events have prevented me from writing more reviews but we’re getting back on track this week. Thank you for your patience.

Highlights of Image Comic Releases

Bitter Root #1

Honestly, I haven’t had a chance to read this title yet, but its trifecta of creators—David F. Walker, Sanford Greene, and Chuck Brown—has me excited for what’s in store. Moreover, the cover by Greene will be connecting cover the encompasses the first arc! Cool!

Infinite Dark #2

Infinite Dark’s debut hit me straight into the feels and I still haven’t recovered. Ryan Cady went for the metaphorical jugular and he got me good. The second issue is just more of the same.

Jook Joint #2

I’m not going to lie, the debut of Jook Joint was one of the strangest books I’ve ever read. This book is how I’d imagine how some people fantasize getting revenge on people who oppress them. Once you open it, you can’t stop reading it.

MCMLXXV #3

I am a huge fan of MCMLXXV’s protagonist Pamela Evans and so bummed that this title is over at issue 3. In a brief twitter conversation with artist Ian Macewan, he didn’t shut the door on issue #4 but there’s currently nothing in the works. If you love this title as much as I do, you need to let the powers that be know!

Murder Falcon #2

When I finished Murder Falcon #1 I was pumped. Jake reminds me a lot of myself; he’s down on his luck and he feels alone (on that last point, I’m not alone but I do feel like I can’t properly express how I feel so I can feel alone even though I’m surrounded by people who love me). Given an opportunity to prove himself, he takes advantage of it and comes out a changed person.

A blockbuster summer comic with a message. Love it.
