Here at Kaboooooom we love our comic books, but if you’re new to the game or just don’t frequent the local comic shop, it can be hard to know where to start. For that, we’re here to help. Every week we’ll share with you our recommendations for what you should be checking out and what you need to know before you crack that cover – it’s Kabooooom’s Pull List!
Pull List: Angela: Queen of Hel #5, Patsy Walker A.K.A. Hellcat #3, Rick and Morty #11
This Week’s Must Read: Aquaman #49
The most recent run on Aquaman has been without question the low point for the character since his return to form with the New 52. Thankfully, DC editorial and writer Cullen Bunn were more than aware of fans’ negative reaction to the current run, and Bunn left the book. In this issue, Aquaman #49, Dan Abnett takes over writing duties and the hope is he’ll prove a better fit. At the very least, Abnett needs to keep the Aquaman series afloat until Geoff Johns, the architect of Aquaman‘s revival, return to the series (as he’s rumored to later this year).
Pull List: Adventures of Supergirl #3 (Digital), Arrow: The Dark Archer #4 (Digital), Hercules #4, Injustice: Gods Among Us: Year Five #10 (Digital), Superman: Lois & Clark #5, Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #5
This Week’s Must Read: Rick and Morty #11
This series has been uniformly hilarious in recent months, though it hasn’t always captured the precise spirit of the television series. This month’ issue, however, should prove to be something special. The subtitle and concept suggests it will be a take on the modern sci-fi comedy classic Ready Player One, which you should read immediately if you haven’t already done so.
