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: Batman #47, The Walking Dead #149
This Week’s Must Read: DC Comics Bombshells #6
DC Comics Bombshells is without a doubt the best team series DC has going for it. And they’re not exactly a fully formed team yet, but they’re getting there. On top of that, Bombshells – contrary to what pinups may bring to mind – treats its heroines as true stars, not window dressing. These ladies are running the show, as are writer Marguerite Bennet and her team of some of the best women artists in the industry – Marguerite Sauvage, Ming Doyle, and currently Laura Braga. For anyone who’s been missing Batwoman, are disappointed with Mera’s recent portrayal in Aquaman, upset with the recent run on Wonder Woman – DC Comics Bombshells is where they are given the treatment they deserve.
Pull List: Constantine The Hellblazer #7, Doctor Who: The Eighth Doctor #2, Hercules #2
This Week’s Must Read: Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor #16
Wait, didn’t issue #14 of The Twelfth Doctor comic come out last week? So how can #16 be coming out this week? No time-warp trickery here, readers. The answer is that issue #16 is this year’s Holiday Special. And with stories by George Mann and Cavan Scott (writers on the Eighth Doctor and Ninth Doctor comic series respectively) this will be sure to tide you Whovians over until the television show’s Christmas special.
Buy these comics at your local comic book store (Don’t know where that is? Here you go.), from Things From Another Universe, or digitally via Comixology.com.
