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 #12, Green Arrow #12, Harley Quinn #9, The Wicked + The Divine #24
This Week’s Must Read: The Walking Dead #161
Are you frustrated with the current season of AMC’s The Walking Dead? Well, you aren’t alone. For myself, it’s been particularly agonizing to witness the television series muck up one of my favorite arcs in the comics, but then that’s the risk in adaptation. Thankfully, one version doesn’t make the other obsolete, and the current arc in The Walking Dead comics is one of their best yet, pitting Rick against a whole new kind of crazy enemy. There isn’t much I can say without spoiling recent developments, and if you aren’t caught up, it wouldn’t make much sense anyway, but for those frustrated with the TV show, the comic book remains a a captivating tale of survival and, more importantly, what it means to rebuild civilization.
Pull List: All-New Wolverine #15, Aquaman #12, Injustice: Ground Zero #10 (Digital Edition
This Week’s Must Read: Green Arrow #12 [Review]
For all the reputation Green Arrow has as a modern day Robin Hood (in truth, Oliver Queen’s Golden Age roots lie in his study of Native American cultures with a focus on weapons and hunting techniques – The More You Know, kids!), only J.T. Krul ever played with the idea of Oliver Queen being an honest-to-goodness outlaw. Given Benjamin Percy’s stellar run so far since Rebirth began, I’m anxious to see what he does with this new storyline in which Green Arrow becomes an honest-to-goodness outlaw, wanted by the police, as he tries to reclaim his life as Oliver Queen.
