Here at Kaboooooom we live and breathe 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!

This Week’s Must Read: Jem & The Holograms #1
In all honesty, I wasn’t a big fan of Jem & The Holograms as a kid. When it came to classic 80s cartoons, I was more firmly in the Transformers camp. Yet, I’m still pretty excited to check out today’s Jem & The Holograms #1. For one, the updated designs from Sophia Campbell are SO DAMN GOOD. But mostly, I’m happy because writer Kelly Thompson is someone I’ve been following on Twitter since, like, forever. I don’t know her personally (that’s just now how Twitter works), but I’ve followed her work online, loved her first novel, and super excited to see her now writing a comic reboot of such a beloved property. It’s totally rad.

This Week’s Must Read: Conan/Red Sonja #3
Two Red Sonja books by Gail Simone in the same week. Oh, I have been a good little critic! But if I must choose between Red Sonja #15 and Conan/Red Sonja #3 (and I must), I’ll go with the later simply because it is so good to see the two greatest heroes of sword and sorcery together again!
Buy these comics at your local comic book store (Don’t know where that is? Here you go.) or digitally via Comixology.com.
