We all need more Canto in our lives.
Weekly Pull Highlights: July 22, 2020
We don't know what happened over at Scout Comics, but they are KILLIN' IT right now with their new titles! This week we discuss Yasmeen #1, as well as a handful of other great new indie books we're excited about. Oh, and if you thought Tee had finally moved beyond Baby Yoda... well, that's more on you, really.
I don't think the Avengers were expecting that.
Weekly Pull Highlights: July 15, 2020
The much anticipated Empyre #1 is finally here and it's got a heckin' twist that you won't (or totally will) see coming! We've also got DnD inside jokes galore, and an incredible new Dynamite title you don't want to miss. Also, leave my teenage online diary alone.
Things are about to get real witchy in Willow.
Weekly Pull Highlights: July 8, 2020
After a week with no Marvel or DC, we come roaring back with three great books! Dan Slott kicks off the Fantastic Four's side of the Empyre story, DCeased comes back to make us all cry (again), and the Whedonverse grows a little more with a brand new title dedicated to Willow. It's like we never left (but don't lie, you missed us)!
An indie-only week of recommendations!
With no DC or Marvel titles this week, we figured it might be better to let everyone celebrate the fourth with more fireworks, less frantic chatter. Instead, here's our handful of recommendations for this week's pull. Have a great holiday, folks!
Honorable Mention Highlights: July 1, 2020
Devil's Highway #1
This book kicks off with a bang - and I gotta say, holiday horror is one of my favorite genres, so to immediately get sucked in to Christmas chaos was very welcome. Setting up as a story of revenge against a daughter who lost her father, there's some definite weirdness in who did what, why they did it, and who these other mysterious players are. I'm intrigued, and it's probably my pick of the week.
All-America Comix One-shot
An interesting super hero tale from the creator of America Chavez. While high energy and full of plenty of sass, this book was solid but a bit lacking in more than just an angsty, somewhat meta take on the genre. I'd like to see more, to see where Casey would have taken Chavez of given the chance.
From the very beginning of the title, I warned y'all that we were going to be given the feels, and the ending was no exception. Emotional, sweet, I love how this book is effectively a love letter between a father and son. With only five issues, this isn't a hard read, but its certainly worth it.
The Goddamned: Virgin Brides #1
Dark and at times hard to approach, but a good read for people that like the "familiar stories told in dark ways" angle. This is chapter 2 of Jason Aaron's Goddamned series, which re-imagines biblical characters/stories in a harsh, prehistoric world. If primeval, god-fearing barbarians is your thing, this is the book for you.
