Love & Thunder? More like Tolerate & A Quiet Fart.
This movie had one heck of a hype train behind it! Now that it's here, we've taken it upon ourselves to step out of summer break just to tell you that it's.... fine. Yep. It's... a movie... Damnit, Taika.
What you may have missed in June!
Honorable Mention Highlights: June 2022
The Closet #1
What happens when the monster in your closet is more than just a scary story kids tell on the playground? What happens when your emotional trauma from family infighting starts to manifest? I don't know, but I'm pretty sure Tynion is about to tell us.
Skybound presents Afterschool #1
Haven't we all wished at some point that our pets could talk? It'd make it a lot easier when they're barking at you and you have no idea why. But if I have to also accept murderous behaviors from my pets, I think I'll just stick with the whining, thanks.
The Lonesome Hunters #1
There's lots of IPs that revolve around monster hunters, but more often than not they're buff, powerful, and in charge of their destiny. This is... not that. Two hunters, neither one exactly willing, both just trying to make sure they don't die. I'm into it.
Beware the Eye of Oden #1
The vibe of this book is sort of all over the place, but that makes it kind of endearing - almost something like an anime where the mood entirely hinges on which character is on screen. A Viking prince has to return the Eye of Odin, and goes on an adventure with a couple merry warriors. It's a little gory and a little silly, but seems like it could be a lot of fun.
Can you mind control someone into being un-mind controlled?
Weekly Pull Highlights: June 29, 2022
We're about to go on summer break for a month, but we're wrapping up this season of standard episode with three fantastic books, including a flamboyant noir, an attack on the MCU, and a venture capitalist getting offed with a fire extinguisher. What a week to go out on!
