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 The Pull List!
Pull List: Detective Comics #953, Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor: Year Two #15, The Flash #19, Future Quest #11
This Week’s Must Read: Batgirl #9
Batgirl has become one of DC Comics’ strongest titles post-Rebirth. Artist Chris Wildgoose is a phenomena, whose style proves equally suited to depicting Barbara’s life as a student/hacktivist and her nocturnal duties as Batgirl. Writer Hope Larson has crafted a new mythology that builds upon the best bits of the Burnside-era and the Gail Simone run while introducing her own ideas — such as a new villainous foil in the form of Penguin’s tech-savvy bastard son. This is easily the best comic series for new readers since the Bendis/Bagley run on Ultimate Spider-Man.
