Weekly Pull Highlights: January 29, 2020
It's something special to witness when writers are allowed to build characters however they damn well please. This week, Mike Mignola holds no punches when it comes to playing our heartstrings in the new Frankenstein: Undone, while Ed Brisson brings us back to the wastelands of Old Man Logan in his new title. Plus, Leah Williams makes Dr. Strange a grumpy, old curmudgeon, which is really all I've ever wanted out of the character (he's just so sassy!).
Um, yes, I DO want some gin for Christmas.
What do you buy the nerdy grown-up in your life who has everything? Let us give you some ideas!

Superheroes aren't often good for goodness sake.
Weekly Pull Highlights: November 27, 2019
Now that you've eaten all the food and spent all the money, let's talk some comics! From a holiday-slaughter in The Crow: Hard the Herald one-shot, to another kind of slaughter in Avengers #27, there's a whole lot of doom and gloom about. At least the Fantastix are here to remind us what being a hero is all about (hint - it's not always murder!).
It's sad Paper Girls is over, but we're happy it happened.
Weekly Pull Highlights: July 31, 2019
We kick off this episode with a quick review of some of the deleted scenes from Avengers: Endgame, but swoop right into a slew of DC Annuals that came out this week! It was an awesome week for comics, from big Batman title releases, to brand new books from Cullen Bunn, to the end of an era with the last issue of Paper Girls. Oh, and we maybe share a little more about ourselves than you wanted to know - no regrets.
A brand new format, just for you!

Howdy and welcome to the new and improved Cover B (a podcast that is by all definitions still new so calling it new and improved seems a little redundant).
Going forward, there is gonna be more content regularly with less content per episode. Episodes will focus essentially on one theme or type of topic instead of three or more. We explain it all in the intro.
As for comics this week, we discuss the endings to Batman Damned, War of the Realms and its various tie-ins and Age of X-Man X-Tremists. We also discuss two adorably heart-warming independent titles: Canto and Steel Cage.
Thanks for listening!
Conventions can be for everyone, with a little preparation.

In this episode, Chris continues the dutiful task of covering all the War of the Realms titles so maybe YOU don't have to (or maybe you do - we like providing options)!

Finally, we give our best tips for the fan who wants to hit the Con circuit without drowning in big crowds and social anxiety.
Sonic the Hedgehog has a toddler's body, for some reason.
Weekly Pull Highlights: May 1, 2019
So, you only get half the sexy voices this time around. Tee is out of town, so Chris runs you through his picks of the week, some general news going on, and kind of just laughs at his own stupid jokes.
As for comics, it is seriously a bad time to be a DC hero, what with all the zombies and Super Villain teams. In the news, we've got Polka Dot Men, Swamp Things, Hedgehogs with toddler bodies, and many other bizarre things to talk about. Seriously, it's basically a Ripley's Believe it or Not crossover episode.
Our review of the new Marvel film, Avengers: Endgame!
Holy crap, Endgame....
Not much to say here. Enjoy our review.
Spoilers at 21:46!

Because why not.
