A fierce battle for the book of the week slot takes place today, but there can only be one. Which title will take the top spot? You’d know if you’ve been paying attention, but let’s get to that and more in The Pull.
Book of the Week: The Many Deaths of Laila Starr #1
I’ve already written about this comic in Comics Disassembled and talked about it with writer Ram V on Off Panel, so I’m going to keep this brief by saying this: I would be surprised if this wasn’t the best, or at least one of the best, debuts of the entire year. In this story of a god turned mortal, the unexpected is around every corner, but what you’re certain to find is about as much craft and clever storytelling as one could ever hope for from a comic. Ram V and Filipe Andrade slay this issue. I cannot wait to read the rest of it. It’s going to be a treasure, plain and simple.
