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!
Pull List: Aquaman #10, Green Arrow #10, Harley Quinn #7, The Walking Dead #160 , Jade Street Protection Services #2,
This Week’s Must Read: The Wicked + The Divine #23
I’m not sure there’s much I can say about The Wicked + The Divine that I haven’t already. It’s been a weird and wonderful tale of teenagers made into pop idols and gods – literally – who then must face the reality they’ll be dead in two years. Last issue saw a big upheaval of power within the pantheon, and in the arc beginning here in issue #23, the fallout from those events will surely not be what we expect.
Pull List: Aquaman #10 [Review], Green Arrow #10, Knights Of The Dinner Table #237
This Week’s Must Read: Injustice: Ground Zero #5 (Digital Edition)
This spin-off series, set concurrently with the events of the story of the Injustice: Gods Among Us video game, has proven as surprisingly brilliant as its predecessor. This issue promises to deliver more of the same brilliant characterization as a mostly reformed but honestly heroic Harley Quinn is confronted by the “Mistah J” of another Earth.
Pull List: Aquaman #10, Batman #10, Green Arrow #10, Green Lanterns #10 [Review], Justice League #8, Midnighter And Apollo #2, Nightwing #8, Superman #10, Avengers #1, Champions #2, Death Of X #3, Foolkiller #1, Moon Knight #8, Occupy Avengers #1, Spider-Man 2099 #17
This Week’s Must Read: Unworthy Thor #1
Jason Aaron’s Mighty Thor run has been nothing short of spectacular. Around the midpoint of the current series, Jane (as Thor) found herself in a situation with Thor Odinson who she had inherited the mighty hammer from; and it was awesome. A comic focusing on what exactly the Unworthy Thor has been doing and what he can even offer the universe, penned by Aaron should be a good time. How “unworthy” is he exactly? Are we going to see some darker tales involving Odinson? I can’t wait to see what else went wrong since he could no longer lift the hammer as we saw at the end of the Original Sin event.
