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: Captain Marvel #6, Rick and Morty #15
This Week’s Must Read: Jade Street Protection Services #1
Billed as a series that’s a cross between The Breakfast Club and Sailor Moon, I immediately knew I’d be in to Jade Street Protection Services. From Black Mask Studios, writer Katy Rex, artist Fabian Lelay, and colorist Mara Jayne Carpenter, Jade Street centers a group of delinquent magical girls who start suspecting their boarding school is up to something – and I’m going to go out on a limb here and say they’re probably right. Seeing as Zodiac Starforce was one of favorite new series of the year, I can’t wait to check this one out. Unlike ZS, this series looks to have a harder, more punk edge to it, and for me, the more magical girl comics the better!
Pull List: Adventures of Supergirl #12 (Digital Edition), Doctor Who: The Ninth Doctor #3, Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor: Year Two #7, Injustice: Gods Among Us: Year Five #28 (Digital Edition), Sons of the Devil #8, Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #9 [Review]
This Week’s Must Read: Con Man’s Spectrum #1
It’s very simple. There was a web series, funded through Indiegogo, called Con Man. You might remember I reviewed the whole series, but that’s not important. What is important is that Spectrum was the all-too quickly canceled sci-fi classic TV show from Con Man. Spectrum wasn’t a real TV show. However, the show was based on a fictional universe developed by young-adult sci-fi writer PJ Haarsma. And now we have a real comic, based on that universe from the fake show, featured in the real show, written by Haarsma and actor Alan Tudyk, who you might know for his role on another quickly-canceled sci-fi classic TV show. See! Easy!
But seriously, just read this one. The Free Comic Book Day preview was brilliant and the art by Sarah Stone looks astonishing.
