Is Marvel actually going to shake things up this time?
Weekly Pull Highlights: June 24, 2020
What a week in comics! Brand new Marvel throwing us into the deep end of the new Empyre event, incredible new indie comics putting genres on their side, and a super sweet compilation all about the joys of your local comic shop. The world might be crazy, but comics keep us grounded, folks. Let's get into it!
We're a community, and we'll stand strong.
The comic industry is going to be a weird, scary and unstable place for the foreseeable time-being thanks to COVID-19. Diamond Comic Distributors, the primary distribution source for comics, has had to stop sending new books to retailers, so no new comics are hitting stores any time soon. For that reason, we wanted to share 5 ways you can help the industry - both your local store and the smaller publishing companies - during this time of great turmoil and uncertainty. We'll get through it together, fam.
It's a weird, weird world and we just live in it.
Weekly Pull Highlights: March 25, 2020
This is gonna be the last of our traditional episodes for a while, because Diamond has had to cancel comic distribution thanks to COVID-19. We'll still have new episodes coming every Sunday, but expect more of our bonus formats like REEL EXTRA and Powered Gaming. It's a crazy time to be alive, but we're going to keep on trucking as best we can. Stay safe, everyone!
Maybe the kid vigilantes just need better mentors.
Weekly Pull Highlights: March 18, 2020
If you're cooped up abiding by the social distancing rules, we've got some great reads for you this week! From the big chongus of a Robin compilation, to the finale of the amazing horror title Black Stars Above, to a feisty debate around child vigilantism, we've got plenty to keep you entertained!
I am slowly learning to expect the unexpected.
Weekly Pull Highlights: February 26, 2020
Well, this week wasn't the MOST exciting week in comics, but it was full of the unexpected! From a really unenthusiastic Marvel team-up, to the dialogue-free Giant Size X-Men, to a couple of kids living life with powers, there's always stuff to talk about... mostly.
I almost wish I didn't know who Leviathan was.
Weekly Pull Highlights: November 13, 2019
While Chris is now fighting the cold-weather-sick, we finally find out the identity of Leviathan (yawn), discuss the creepy new title in the Hill's House line, and Tee shares a great new title called Black Stars Above. Oh, and we got Disney+, so stay tuned for a review of episode one of The Mandalorian, coming soon!
(PSST: Here's the link to 'Guy on a Buffalo,' which is amazing.)
Salem the Cat should always be voiced by Nick Bakay.
Weekly Pull Highlights: October 2, 2019
Halloween is starting early with a bunch of horror books featuring a plethora of baddies, ranging from evil fairies, to weirdly-drawn vampires, to the patriarchy. But our most pressing fear has been quelled - for now - thanks to Spider-Man being back in the MCU!
Harleen Frances Quinzel is a super weird name.
Weekly Pull Highlights: September 25, 2019
Not a ton of books, but a whole lot to say! From the implications of a murder at the end of Strikeforce #1, to the effects of Harley Quinn's past on her relationship with the Joker, to the revolution of sex workers in Safe Sex #1, we're hitting the hard comic book issues you need to hear about. Oh, and no Ghost Rider show, which sucks. Listen now!
There ain't no such thing as werewuffs!
Weekly Pull Highlights: July 17, 2019
To endings and new beginnings! We cover everything from our apprehension of the X-Men's future (Age of X-Man & Uncanny X-Men), to the need for levity in comics (Unstoppable Wasp), to how much modern voicing can be ANNOYING in an old-timey book (Sera & the Royal Stars). Oh, and Vampirella wears basically nothing. Enjoy!
Honestly, if you're in Hoboken, we're really sorry.
Weekly Pull Highlights: July 3, 2019
Buckle up for the Walking Dead news of the CENTURY. Or at least the next few days or so. We also have more Numba Ones than a Kids Next Door Marathon and a whole lot of apologies to the people of Hoboken. We cap off with our suggestions for books to read to get into the Patriotic Spirit! Enjoy, muchachos.
