It's sad Paper Girls is over, but we're happy it happened.
Weekly Pull Highlights: July 31, 2019
We kick off this episode with a quick review of some of the deleted scenes from Avengers: Endgame, but swoop right into a slew of DC Annuals that came out this week! It was an awesome week for comics, from big Batman title releases, to brand new books from Cullen Bunn, to the end of an era with the last issue of Paper Girls. Oh, and we maybe share a little more about ourselves than you wanted to know - no regrets.
A recent history of Marvel's X-Men (and then some).
Weekly Pull Highlights: July 24, 2019
Hope you're ready to get bombarded with a whole bunch of brand new Marvel #1's! From Valkyrie and Sword Master, to Hickman's highly-anticipated House of X, we're breaking it all down in a super long episode filled with Marvel history you may or may not have ever cared about knowing. Excelsior!
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!
A how-to and how-not-to on writing female characters.
Weekly Pull Highlights: July 10, 2019
What's new, listeners! Well, for us, it's a bunch of number one's across the board, from the one-shot Wolverine's Hair Vs. Blade #1, to the much anticipated (and unsurprisingly controversial) release of Second Coming #1. But hey, if you're not asking yourself "WHO'S LEVIATHAN," are you really even reading comics? (I mean, we hope you are, otherwise, we're really surprised your here!)
Our review of the new Marvel film, Spider-Man: Far from Home!
Our friendly, neighborhood Spider-Man is back again for another installment of romance, intrigue, deception... and the best after-credits stingers EVER! Join us as we give our reviews, both non-spoiler friendly and SUPER spoiler-y!
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.
A brand new format, just for you!

Howdy and welcome to the new and improved Cover B (a podcast that is by all definitions still new so calling it new and improved seems a little redundant).
Going forward, there is gonna be more content regularly with less content per episode. Episodes will focus essentially on one theme or type of topic instead of three or more. We explain it all in the intro.
As for comics this week, we discuss the endings to Batman Damned, War of the Realms and its various tie-ins and Age of X-Man X-Tremists. We also discuss two adorably heart-warming independent titles: Canto and Steel Cage.
Thanks for listening!
Episode 32 - Everyone's Favorite Dave, AND TWINS, Graphic Novelties: My Heroes Have Always Been Junkies
Comics aren't the only thing we read!
Weekly Pull Highlights: June 19, 2019
Chris shares some interesting new indie number 1's, while Tee wraps up DC's Goddess Mode (albeit a little... overwhelmed). The news is a little light this week, but we do get a good chuckle over some savage marketing by Marvel.
We wrap up this week with a brand new segment called Graphic Novelties, where we discuss and review "My Heroes Have Always Been Junkies," an OGN by Ed Brubaker.
We're not saying he can't draw feet, okay.
Weekly Pull Highlights: June 12, 2019
This week, Bendis changed the DC Universe (again), Squirrel Girl is saving the world (again), and Image is killing it with a brand new title (again).
Then we mostly just poke fun at Rob Liefield (oops) for going after DC on Twitter... Even though he might be right (oops again) (our bad) (don't hate us, Rob).
Our review of the new Marvel/Fox film, X-Men: Dark Phoenix!
Well, despite the hate and hostility from incoming reviews, we decided to brave the theater and wade our way though the final film in Fox's X-Men series. And it was... a movie!
