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!
Red Hood doesn't get no respect!
Weekly Pull Highlights: August 26, 2020
WOW are there some intense plot points this week! From there finally being actually three Jokers, to the surprise throwback in the Daredevil Annual, there's no limit on the comic craziness this episode. OH, and aliens attack Red Sonja... we're not kidding.
(Want to avoid Three Jokers #1 spoilers? Skip to 25:10!)
But like... what even is a virtual dome? Amiright?
Prepare for an onslaught of brand new DC news! This past weekend, DC held their online fan convention, DC Fandome, revealing all sorts of cool movies, comics, games, trailers and more, We'll go through all the highlights to help keep you in the know!
But can we all agree that, objectively, Batman is ridiculous?
Weekly Pull Highlights: August 19, 2020
I mean, I know we mentioned this last time, but like, why are there so many vampires right now? It's like every new round of books includes at least one vampire-focused title! At least this week has a ton of options for folks who love vampires, folks who don't!
Once you see CGI vampire eyes, you're never the same.
Weekly Pull Highlights: August 5, 2020
Look at all these re-visited IPs! From video games, to classic films, to a new title in an existing comic line, we help guide you through these new books and give some insight into the worlds they come from. Maybe instead of all these movie reboots, we can just have brand new comics instead?
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)!
Short, sweet, and to the point!
Weekly Pull Highlights: June 17, 2020
We took a couple weeks off for some personal (and some political) reasons, but we are BACK and coming at you with a relatively short, but certainly to the point, episode. With a handful of great new number ones, and a surprising ability to stay on topic, we hope this Cover B is refreshing without weighing you down, like when you eat a banana instead of nachos. You're welcome.
It was a quiet, but quite Batman-tastic, week!
As you can tell, we unfortunately don't have an episode for you this week. Partially because of a very small pull from our local comic shop, and partially because this week was incredibly busy. Stay tuned, though - we'll be back next week! In the meantime, here's our picks for this week - let us know what you think in the comments!
Honorable Mention Highlights: June 10, 2020
Joker 80th Anniversary 100 Page Super Spectacular
A must read for Joker fans. DC really let their writers and artists flex in this one, and it gets really twisted FAST. Also, there's a joke about the Batman Damned controversy, so that's always fun.
Batman: The Adventures Continue #1
Batman: The Animated Series is a hard act to follow, considering it's cult-following status and incredible influence on the IP as a whole. While it's certainly still early and was enjoyable in its own right, the book hasn't quite shown it has legs just yet, with a relatively ho-hum plot line that felt more about character name dropping than properly building off it's predecessor. Here's to hoping issue two starts gain a little more traction.
Batman Secret Files #3
This particular edition of Secret Files focuses on the group of assassins that recently were unleashed on Batman by the Designer. It's a nice look at the challenges Batman faces, since sometimes he can seem like a character who just can't be stopped by anything. Some pretty decent fight sequences, too!
I love a book that drops you into the middle of the drama, and this book definitely does that. First you're hit with a pulpy, old-school styled hero team, then you're in modern day with a beautifully developed lead character that has nothing to do with the previous half of the book... or so we think. Beautiful art, a solid definition of the world, I am DEFINITELY here for more.
You listen to us every week, but who even are we?!
We thought the comic drought would be the perfect time for us to share a little more about us, your weekly Cover B crew! In this episode, we talk all about why we got into comics, what comics mean to us, and why we hope everyone takes the time to stop by their local shop to pick out a new title!
Is it really so hard to let Wonder Woman be... wonderful?
[Very mild SPOILERS!]
As we continue along the COVID-19 comic drought, we thought it might be nice to get our superhero fix with the recent release of 'Superman: Red Son,' the newest installment from the DCAMU. This cinematic retelling of the fan-favorite Mark Millar story is an interesting take on what would happen if Superman had been born into Soviet Russia. Plus, we give a little bonus speculation on our hopes for new DC video games (fingers crossed for some more Arkham!). Come let us help you kill time during quarantine!
