The Pull List (9/8/14): The Whedon Three Way (and a goodbye)

Posted By on Tue, Sep 9, 2014 at 12:06 PM

Dark Horse Comics knows how to milk a few bucks out of a name.

That’s why this week sees the release of The Whedon Three Way — three-comics-in-one for only a buck. The one-shot introduces readers to comic book incarnations of some of Joss Whedon’s best-known properties, including Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel & Faith, and Serenity: Leaves on the Wind. The collective creative team includes brother Zack Whedon, Christos Gage, Victor Gischler, Georges Jeanty, and more.

Really, though, three comics for $1 is a pretty great deal. And you can’t argue with quality, either, as the Whedon fanbase continues to grow, despite his lack of involvement with the comic book medium (unless you count directing one of the biggest Marvel films of all time, and its sequel).

So check it out, if you can spare the buck. Otherwise, don’t miss the second installment of Death of Wolverine, which wowed us all with its first issue. See what else is out after the jump.

And now, a goodbye. Unfortunately, in light of the recent purchase of Creative Loafing, my regular column must end due to budgetary changes.

My wife and I moved to Charlotte in June 2013, and I started writing Comic Afterthoughts shortly after arriving here. Every week, it's been a privilege to talk comics and cover local events for this blog. And despite this news, I look forward to seeing (and debating with) you at area shops and conventions. For now, if you're still interested in my thoughts on new releases each week, you can check out my Twitter page. But expect the occasional photo of my dogs, too.

I do plan to make the occasional reappearance in CL's print edition, but for now, I'll say, see ya around.

Now, and I mean it this time, check out this week's line-up of new releases. See you Wednesday.
