It's like a post-modern, partly-naked Wonderland (grown-up, of course).
This is one of the most clever, creative, inventive titles we've read in a very, very long time. A fantasy story that's not afraid to play with surealism, post-modernism, and utter chaos, this book has a little something for everyone. It's a big chongus of a read, too! Go get it! Go get it now!!
Didn't expect THAT from the top rope...
Weekly Pull Highlights: June 15, 2022
We're working so hard to get back to a normal schedule, but as you can tell from Tee's voice, it's been easier said than done. But this week has a couple excellent new books, both with constant surprises around every page turn. Boom - necromancy out of nowhere! This is why we love comics.
We might be sick, but not too sick for comics.
Weekly Pull Highlights: June 7, 2022
Alright, so we might sound raspy and kind of groggy... but it's only because we are. Despite the illness among us, we're powering through because this week had some excellent comics we didn't want you to miss out on, including TWO whole books from DC worth mentioning!
What you may have missed in May!
Honorable Mention Highlights: May 2022
Jess is a grim reaper. She has no idea why she is dead, but she is and she has a job to do. On a routine soul grab, her scythe is stolen. At some point there is a skull face, a lot of rage and a mention of the veil between the two worlds of life and death. With a familiar premise, a fun cast of characters and plenty of action, this book is absolutely one to die for (sorry).
Eight Billion Genies #1
This is possibly one of the most chaotic premises I've ever heard of and it definitely delivers. In an instant, every person on earth is given their own genie with one wish. Thinking fast, the owner of a local bar wishes that his bar and everyone within it are protected by wishes made outside. What follows is a series of surprisingly personal tales backdropped on the chaos happening in the world, which is now cube-shaped because somebody wished for that, I guess?
I Hate This Place #1
Is it aliens? Is it ghosts? Is it demons? Is it... all of the above? Honestly, we have no idea what we're dealing with in this book, aside from a couple trying to flip a house they inherited. Spoiler - I don't think they're going to sell successfully, even in this market.
The post-apocalyptic murder contests are here to stay, folks.
Weekly Pull Highlights: June 1, 2022
We're back, baby! And with a couple excellent indie titles about being swept onto adventure without ever seeing it coming.
