THE PULL LIST 7.5.17

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!

This Week’s Must Read: Zodiac Starforce: Cries of the Fire Prince #1 [Review]

Zodiac Starforce returns!
An elite group of teenage girls with magical powers have sworn to protect our planet against dark creatures . . . as long as they can get out of class! Known as the Zodiac Starforce, these high-school girls aren’t just combating math tests–they re also battling monsters!
After defeating a former ZS member and her mean-girl minions, the girls thought they d get a little break! But a new big bad s come out to play, and demons are starting to overrun the downtown!

It’s a big week for my pull list, what with WicDiv returning, a new arc in Walking Dead, and my regular superhero and sci-fi reads. But of all of those, I’m most pumped for the return of Zodiac Starforce. The first series was a great addition to the magical girl genre and remains my favorite comic of 2016. Its follow-up, Zodiac Starforce: Cries of the Fire Prince begins today with a charming and fun #1 issue full of the all the magical girl action and comedy that made its first series so enjoyable.

This Week’s Must Read: Rick and Morty: Pocket Like You Stole It #1

Rick and Morty: Pocket Like You Stole It is a new comic book miniseries based on the popular Adult Swim television series and inspired by the Pocket Mortys mobile game! In this five issue series, Morty is on a quest to free himself (and all the other Mortys) from the clutches of Ricks, who collect Mortys and force them to battle one another for schmeckles and glory. Along the way, he’ll discover the grisly history of Morty battling, the dastardly lengths that Ricks are willing to stoop to in order to win, and perhaps… the strength in himself that’s needed to free the Mortys once and for all?

While the quality has varied wildly from month to month on Oni Comics’ Rick and Morty series, I’ve always found the comics drawn by Marc Ellerby have maintained a look consistent with the original show. That’s why I’m looking forward to this comic even as I hope they find a novel twist on the usual video-game tie-in comic.


Buy these comics at your local comic book store (don’t know where that is? here you go) or digitally via comixology.com.
