THE PULL LIST 8.16.17

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!

The superstar BATMAN team of writer Scott Snyder and artist Greg Capullo reunite for a massive, universe-spanning event!
DARK NIGHTS: THE FORGE and THE CASTING hinted at dark corners of reality that have never been seen till now! Now, as DARK DAYS: METAL begins, the Dark Multiverse is revealed in all its devastating danger-and the threats it contains are coming for the DC Universe!
DARK DAYS: METAL is a DC event unlike any other-one that will push Batman, Superman and heroes of the Justice League beyond their limits to take on threats unlike any our world has ever seen! It will take the combined might of the World’s Greatest Heroes as you’ve never seen them before to face what’s coming their way!

Events are usually hit or miss, but with Dark Nights: Metal again uniting the power-team of Scott Snyder and Greg Capulla, I’m in. I didn’t, however, read either of the tie-in issues — Dark Days: The Forge or Dark Days: The Casting — because events are so often bogged down by countless tie-in issues and it can become just too much. The word is those issues were good and did tease where this event series will go, but hopefully Dark Nights: Metal #1 will be able to stand on its own. Regardless, I’m amped to explore a new dark and sinister corner of multiverse from one of the best creative teams in the biz.

After the thrilling events of FUTURE QUEST, a new age of adventure begins! First up, Space Ghost and his young wards Jan and Jace team up with the Herculoids to rebuild the mighty Space Force. Will they rise again to become defenders of the galaxy? Or is there something lurking in the shadows ready to stop them for good?

Future Quest was a surprisingly enjoyable take on the classic action cartoons of Hanna-Barbera. And yet, I was disappointed that we didn’t get to see my favorite – Space Ghost – really come into action until the final chapters. Team Future Quest writer Jeff Parker with Ariel Olivetti (who did the art on the recent Green Lantern/Space Ghost team-up) seems a sure-fire way to satisfy my cravings for a Space Ghost focused series.
