The Pull List (7/30/14): Bodies hit the shelves

Posted By on Wed, Jul 30, 2014 at 10:24 AM

DC’s newest Vertigo series is Bodies, a murder-mystery that takes place in four time periods. Scribe Si Spencer, known for books like Hellblazer: City of Demons, tackles all of the writing; four artists (Dean Ormston, Phil Winslade, Meghan Hetrick and Tula Lotay) take on a corresponding, six-page chapter in each issue. (On Tuesday, Lotay signed books and gave out sketches at Charlotte's own Heroes Aren't Hard to Find. The comic shop posted photos from the signing here.)

One interesting aspect to the story is the time periods chosen for the series. The narrative takes place in 1890, 1940, 2014 and 2050. Each of the eight issues of the miniseries will visit these points in time, and all contribute to the overall mystery of Bodies.

But this book isn’t the only No. 1 to look out for this week. Image has Chew: Warrior Chicken Poyo #1 and Low #1 slated for release. Dark Horse Comics is offering Deep Gravity #1 and Baltimore: The Witch of Harju #1. And for Marvel fans, the tongue-in-cheek 100th Anniversary Special: Guardians of the Galaxy is set to debut.
