The Pull List #71 - August 31, 2016

A weekly column in which Jake gives short blurbs about the comics he’s picked up that week. Reviewed in the order read, which varies but generally by increasing anticipation.   Disclaimer: he knows very little about art, at least not enough to considerably honor such tremendous undertakings, so…yeh, there’s that.






BOOK OF THE WEEK (BY DEFAULT)
Ms. Marvel #10



Writer: G. Willow Wilson
Artists: Takeshi Miyazawa & Adrian Alphona
Colorist: Ian Herring
Letterer: VC’s Joe Caramagna
Marvel

After the explosive conclusion of last month’s issue, Kamala is left with the fallout, and, more importantly, where she goes from here.  Wilson’s script is very tense and wonderfully dramatic, except when it’s getting upstaged by comedy bits.  Ms. Marvel’s always been a pretty humorous book, but generally that humor has been used to enhance it’s more dramatic tendencies.  Here, several gags throw off what would otherwise be a stellar outing.  Great art continues to be great.  CW2 has really ramped up the stakes for Ms. Marvel, mostly in a good way. Now, all that’s left is to see if they stick the landing.
