When Godzilla's trying to tell you something, just listen already!
Honorable Mention Highlights: April 21, 2021
Godzilla: Monsters & Protectors #1
Big Hero 6 meets the King of the Monsters! Probably gonna have a nice message about the environment in it too. This book had some 90s Saturday morning cartoon drip and I loved it.
The Many Deaths of Laila Starr #1
Wowsers, what a trip. Ram V and Filipe Andrade hit us with some super interesting interpretations of theology while creating a dark and captivatingly morose tale of vengeance and death, all built upon a sad potentially damaged girl named Laila. The title definitely does not lie!
Women of Marvel #1
Another fantastic compilation from Marvel, but this time entirely focused on new, up and coming women authors and artists - and HECK, is it fun. Running throughout the entire piece are short one-page stories from Mariko Tamaki who fully understands how to succingly describe the female experience, and how to make it hilarious. I mean, let's be real - sometimes you just have to laugh at the stuff we go through. Definitely pick this one up!
Tesla over Edison, ALL DAY, ERRY DAY, baby.
Honorable Mention Highlights: April 14, 2021
Minky Woodcock: The Girl Who Electrified Tesla #1
You guys know I'm a sucker for historical fiction, and this one presses all the right buttons. Tesla and his bird wife, conspiracies, science fiction, and a powerful female protag who smarts off to anyone who gives her grief. Match made in heaven.
Locke & Key/ The Sandman: Hell & Gone #1
Locke & Key and Sandman just go together so nicely. Not an expected combo like Peanut Butter & Jelly but one of those random combos that work like Cinnamon Toast Crunch & Shrimp. Anyway, this book picks up after the last run of Locke & Key and is going to be a wild ride.
Guardians of the Galaxy #13 [Legacy #175]
Al Ewing continues mixing things up with the guardians. We're presented with a new roster and a team that functions more like the Avengers than the spunky renegades they've typically been. It's an interesting dynamic and a good jumping on point for interested readers. Plus, a left-field bad guy reveal that has me super excited.
Big Liz vs King Monk - who wins?
It's a battle for the ages - the giant ape who just wants to be left alone, versus man's protector, the ever alpha mega-lizard. Who wins, who loses - is it the best movie ever?
It's Godzilla vs. Kong! And it's... fine? Look, we're not breaking any barriers with this flick, but come find out if our predictions were right anyway!
But like, who doesn't enjoy eldritch terrors that make you crazy?
Weekly Pull Highlights: February 3, 2021

Weekly Pull Highlights: November 11, 2020
Some excellent books this week from publishers we don't normally get to talk about! The indies are teaching us all sorts of cool stuff, like how to be a parent AND be haunted, how the upper elite REALLY live, and how absolutely insane the 80's really were. Ah, adventures and then some.
Put him in a body bag, Ralphie!
Weekly Pull Highlights: October 28, 2020
It's Halloween, and honestly our reviews this week are a little spooky. There's one shining star in the bunch, but a lot of this week had titles that couldn't quite get past the finish line... maybe we're just grumpy from Mercury in retrograde.
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 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!
We all need more Canto in our lives.
