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!

This Week’s Must Read: Trinity #1 [Review]
Batman, Wonder Woman, and Superman are the Holy Trinity of DC Comics. They are the mind, heart, and body of the DC Universe, each representing a different pillar of heroism. They’re a big deal, basically, so to have all three starring in their own team book is also a big deal. And when that team-up book looks as promising and as drop-dead gorgeous as Francis Manapul’s Trinity, it becomes a very big deal. Just take a look at these preview pages (via A.V. Club). Stunning. And the premise doesn’t sounds half bad either, focusing on the bonds these three friends share, how they came to be the heroes they are, and what they can learn to help defeat their latest threat.

This Week’s Must Read: Green Arrow #7 [Review]
I wasn’t happy when it was announced that the next few issues of Green Arrow would be flashback tales focused upon Oliver’s younger half-sister, Emiko. I’ve always viewed the character to be a half-assed rip-off of Damian Wayne (whom I also can’t stand) and putting Ollie and Dinah’s respective fates on hold after the cliff-hanger ending of Green Arrow #5 didn’t sit well with me. Imagine my surprise when Benjamin Percy did more in one issue than Jeff Lemire managed during his run to develop the character beyond an annoying blood-thirsty brat. I’m looking forward to seeing if he can maintain that momentum going into this next issue.
