You know it's a good book when it's got an exclamation point.

Look, sometimes a rant comes out of left-field and we just really need to share our feelings, okay? From unexpected hits, to misses that get bigger the more we talk about them, we discuss the big indie #1s of the week.
But like, who doesn't enjoy eldritch terrors that make you crazy?
Weekly Pull Highlights: February 3, 2021
We love it when fiction pushes the usual boundaries! From esoteric horror, to reality-bending westerns, to visual representations of drug trips, this week has all sorts of weird and wonderful goodies. And hey - we love an all-indie week, don't you?
We desperately need a more meta Fantastic Four.
Weekly Pull Highlights: December 2, 2020
Jeez Louise, talk about a hefty week! Two new crossovers began this week - one that seems like it could be "the big one," and one that's... a little more generic. Plus, an excellent F4 one-shot, the start of Batman/Catwoman, and some cool new indie titles. Hope you're ready for a heavy read list!
But like, is Doreen even really a teen?
Weekly Pull Highlights: October 7, 2020
So, we didn't post our Powered Gaming on time (our bad, we're fixing it, we promise!), but we do have stuff to talk about today! Like, the current political climate and how young folks are being glorified as revolutionary heroes... and also how Marvel didn't do too bad when they stole the Norse mythos. Come celebrate Tee's birthday and lets chat books!
You name it, we read it. Seriously.
Weekly Pull Highlights: September 2, 2020
What a heckin' beefy week for comics! A ton of excellent new indie titles, all from very different genres - you want horror, we've got horror! You want sci-fi or fantasy? We've got you covered. You want romantic drama, we've got that, too. This week really had it all!
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.
And now for something new & different... an episode!
