Nerd Issues Weekly #16

YouNerded’s weekly Pull List for the week of 10.1.2014

We’ve got a fresh batch of issues with ‘The Walking Dead,’ ‘Thor,’ and ‘Cutter!’

Welcome back to Nerd Issues Weekly, the best place on the internet to find out what comics you should be pulling off the shelves each week. Just to forewarn you all, we’ve got a pretty Marvel heavy list, but rightfully so since they’ve got some big titles launching this week. It’s also worth noting that cover art for the first Star Wars comic published by Marvel was released on Tuesday. It’s going to be interesting to see how Marvel handles publishing rights to such a large franchise, especially given the new comic and the new film debut together in 2015. Without further delay, let’s get into this week’s list of must have comics!


Guardians 3000 #1

Price: $3.99

NIW#16A1

It’s nothing new that we’re fans of Guardians of the Galaxy over here at YouNerded, but this week we’ve got the debut of Guardians 3000. 3000 is a new series that features the original guardians, Yondu, Vance Astro, Starhawk, Martinex, and Charlie-27, as they face off against the Badoon as they attempt to save the universe yet again. In what’s being setup to be an action filled first issue, Dan Abnett and company look to give the spotlight to the originals, giving the newer fanbase a chance to see the classics. If you’re a fan of cosmic Marvel, sci-fi and superheroes, or just looking for something new, this is a must have.

Cutter #1

Price: $3.99

NIW#16A2

It wouldn’t feel right if we didn’t include at least one horror themed comic now that we’re into the month of October, and the first issue we’re going to feature for the month is Cutter. Getting in touch with some truly dark concepts, Cutter asks the question: What would happen if the kid you and your peers picked on came back from the dead seeking revenge? Jeremy, the lead character in the series, thinks that he has escaped his past, but things change when he’s pitted against the Cutter, a serial killer out for revenge. Specially for the month of October, the first four issues of Cutter are going to be released on a weekly basis, ensuring you have a least one horror comic to pick up each week.

Thor (2014) #1

Story by: Jason Aaron
Art by: Russell Dauterman
Publisher: Marvel Comics
Price: $3.99

NIW#16A3

The time has come, and we now have a new goddess of thunder! For those unfamiliar, during the events of the Original Sin arc, Nick Fury whispered something to Thor that caused him to be unworthy of wielding the Mjölnir. To this day, we still aren’t sure what Fury whispered to him, but we can hope to count on finding out in this new series. There isn’t a whole lot known at this point on who the new worthy wielder is, but we can bank on learning more on who this relatively unknown goddess is and how she’s connected to Asgard. Written by Jason Aaron and illustrated by Russell Dauterman, this is sure to be a solid read given the fact that there are a lot of questions to be answered in the Marvel universe at the moment.

Bucky Barnes Winter Soldier #1

Price: $3.99

NIW#16A4

Following suite with another series impacted by the events taken place in Original Sin, we’ve got Bucky Barnes Winter Soldier #1. After a crazy turn of events, Bucky has gone from investigating in space with Moon Knight and Gamora to now taking on the role that Nick Fury once held as the Earth’s guardian. With a large portion of the series set to take place in space, you can bet that you are going to get a larger dose of cosmic Marvel.

The Walking Dead #132

Story by: Robert Kirkman
Art by: Charlie Adlard
Publisher: Image Comics
Price: $2.99

NIW#16A5

Last up this week, we’ve got the The Walking Dead. In my opinion, the A New Beginning arc has been understandably less eventful than the previous All Out War one. However, if anyone has read the letter hacks of the last issue, it’s been stated that this is going to end with a major surprise and possible cliffhanger. Be sure to start off this “Walktober” on the right foot to help you prepare for the debut of the new series that’s just a few short weeks away.

What did you think of the latest issue of ‘The Walking Dead?’ Which new series are you looking forward to the most this week? Let us know in the comments below.
