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: Future Quest #4, Rick and Morty #17
This Week’s Must Read: Insexts Vol. 1
Considering how sparse my pull is this week, I’m choosing something a little different for my must read – a trade paperback, which is the lingo for a collected edition of single issues. In this case, it’s the first seven issues of writer Marguerite Bennett and artist Ariela Kristantina’s Insexts – an erotic gothic horror about a pair of “vengeful Victorian vixens” who “discover a horrifying power that transforms them into rich and strange new creatures.” I think that means they can turn into bug people, but I’m not entirely sure. Either way, I’ve been interested in this series for some time having loved Bennet’s work on DC Comics’ Bombshells and the artwork looks absolutely gorgeous. Besides, how can a tale of Victorian lesbians with insect powers not pique your interest?

This Week’s Must Read: All-New Wolverine Annual #1

This Week’s Must Read: Amazing World of Gumball Grab Bag Special#1
The class bell has rung. Written and drawn by the uber-talented Katy Farina, this Boom! Studios special should get considerably high marks. Whether it’s treasure under the school’s basement or the fear of a new school photo, the Wattersons are on the case. Boom! and Farina bring fans of the offbeat and innovative show a series of shorts as a perfect way to start up the new school year.
