Welcome to the inaugural edition of the “Nerd Issues Weekly” where we tell you which comics you should be picking up and adding to your pull list for each New Comics Day. This week we are featuring some work from the likes of Scott Snyder, Sean Murphy and Warren Ellis, as well as some titles that are fairly new to the market.
1. The Wake #9
Story by: Scott Snyder
Art by: Sean Murphy
Publisher: DC Comics, Vertigo
As the penultimate of “The Wake” is released, this is rightfully at the top of this week’s pull list. The equilibrium of Scott Snyder’s narrative and Sean Murphy’s artwork has been pinpoint throughout the duration of the series, and I don’t expect that to change in the final two issues.
2. Original Sin #3
Story by: Jason Aaron
Art by: Mike Deodato
Publisher: Marvel Comics
The investigation of Uatu the Watcher’s death continues as Nick Fury and The Avengers remain on the hunt for He Who Holds The Eye and his boss. Expect this to be another chilling issue as yet another murder is uncovered by the Winter Soldier led team.
3. Woods #2
Story by: James Tynion IV
Art by: Michael Dialynas
Publisher: Boom Studios
“Woods” is the debut original comic by James Tynion IV. Just in its second issue this far into the series, the story revolves around a Milwaukee-based school that has been teleported into an alien wilderness, and more closely follows a group of students who venture out to discover answers.
4. Rise of the Magi #1
Story by: Marc Silvestri
Art by: Sumeyye Kesgin
Publisher: Image Comics
Written by Marc Silvestri and featuring art by the talented Sumeyye Kesgin, “Rise of the Magi” is a new series that follows Asa Stoneworth as he discovers that a piece of a black sphere that holds two worlds together has gone missing after having its protective spell broken.
5. Moon Knight #4
Story by: Warren Ellis
Art by: Declan Shalvey
Publisher: Marvel Comics
The relaunch of “Moon Knight” with Warren Ellis has been seeing a level of success that has a resemblance to the work of Matt Fraction on the Hawkeye series in 2012. Warren Ellis has promised that “Moon Knight” is going to journey into some weird places, and I cannot wait to see that happen in this week’s issue.
