How come we never see the awkward Batman teen years?
Weekly Pull Highlights: January 19, 2021
What an excellent chunk of new books this week! Romance with a science fiction twist, fantasy in a natural environment, and the awkward in-between years of Batman.
Because there's nothing wrong with a little more Bruce sometimes.
Did you know that Saturday was Batman Day? It timed out beautifully for us to be able to highlight a brand new compilation all about Batman from a global perspective. We share our favorite stories from the book, but it's honestly an excellent read cover to cover. Here's to you, Brucey-boy!
This is how I picture literally every Bard ever.

What happens when you drop a traditional tabletop RPG crew, complete with bard and fighter and wizard (oh my!), into a traditional Aztec setting? We don't know yet either, but we're really excited to find out! That and more on this weeks episode (and our theory on Robin's new name... fingers crossed!) - check it out now!
And now we get to be depressed about no sequels...
After years of talking smack as non-believers, we sat down and committed the time to watch the newly released Zack Snyder cut of Justice League. And honestly guys... we were wrong. This movie is awesome!
A relatively non-spoilery episode, we break down WHY it's better, and why having a 4 hour runtime is actually it's biggest strength.
It's the return of our favorite - goofy Lex Luthor!
It's our final week of Future State titles! Let's wrap things up with a handful of titles that were even more removed from the timeline - but that may have made them even better. We'll be covering Aquaman, Batman/Superman, Legion of Superheroes, Suicide Squad, and Superman vs Imperious Lex. Yeehaw, we're almost through it, y'all!
We need a timeline poster, stat.
Oh snap, it's more Future State #1s! This week, we talk about Catwoman, Superman: Worlds of War, Immortal Wonder Woman, Nightwing and Shazam - and when we say talk, we mean try and figure out when in the heck these books all take place in the timeline! I think we need a roadmap, DC, sheesh. Let's get rolling!
It's sort of like "No Context" the crossover event.
It's round two (pun intended) of our Future State Roundups! This week, we're covering Dark Detective, Green Lantern, Justice League, Kara Zor-El Superwoman, Robin Eternal Superman/Wonder Woman, & Teen Titans - a whole lot of references without a whole lot of payoff. We give you the rundown on what to pick up, what to skip, and what we preferred of all the new titles.
It's a completely connected... or unconnected... series of titles!
In the aftermath of Dark Knights: Death Metal, DC is putting the rest of their series on hold to make room for the exciting developments in Future State! We're giving you a "roundup" of all the new titles this week - including Wonder Woman, the Next Batman, Superman of Metropolis, Harley Quinn, Swamp Thing, and the Flash - and filling you in on what's a must-read or an easy pass.
We desperately need a more meta Fantastic Four.

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!
Who hurt you, Peter J. Tomasi?!
Weekly Pull Highlights: October 21, 2020
Man, this was a powerful week for books! We get more from the excellent White Knight Batman universe, a filled in plot hole from Dark Knights Metal, and a couple new titles with very cool, very different vibes. Oh, and we try to figure out who damaged the poor psyche of Peter Tomasi. I mean... really, man. Who hurt you?
