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: Batgirl And The Birds Of Prey #5 [Review], Clean Room #14, Descender #17, Detective Comics #946, The Flash #12, Injustice: Ground Zero #11 (Digital Edition), Knights Of The Dinner Table #238, Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #15
This Week’s Must Read: Red Sonja #0 [Review]
I’m anxious over this title for two reasons. On the one hand, I love sword-and-sorcery and the writing is by the excellent Amy Chu, whose recent Poison Ivy mini-series I enjoyed immensely. On the other hand, the artwork is by Carlos Gomez – an artist whose penchant for gratuitous fan service and complete lack of a sense of proportion has driven me away from Dynamite Comics’ Dresden Files adaptations despite my being a fanatical Jim Butcher fan. One way or another, this book will be an interesting one.
Pull List: Action Comics #969, DC Rebirth Holiday Special #1, Detective Comics #946, Flash #12, Hal Jordan And The Green Lantern Corps #10, Lost Boys #3, New Super-Man #6 [Review], Red Hood And The Outlaws #5, Suicide Squad #8, Wonder Woman #12, Batman Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Adventures #2, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #65, All-New X-Men #16, Amazing Spider-Man Renew Your Vows #2, Daredevil #14 [Review], Doctor Strange/Punisher Magic Bullets #1, Guardians Of The Galaxy #15, Hawkeye #1, Jessica Jones #3, Old Man Logan #15, Power Man And Iron Fist #11, Spider-Man #10, Poe Dameron #9, Totally Awesome Hulk #13, Uncanny Avengers #17
This Week’s Must Read: Inhumans Vs X-Men #1
FINALLY! This underwhelming and forgettable era of X-Men being overshadowed by Inhumans is coming to a close. This event kicked off last week with issue #0, which set the stage for the mutant war on all things terrigen. Marvel promises that ResurreXion will right this misguided ship of mutant comics and the only thing standing in our way now is this event. If you had given up on X-books for the time being, this is where you should jump back on. Charles Soule, Jeff Lemire, and Leinil Yu are more than capable of delivering a satisfying bridge from the dull into the promised land. At the very least, it can’t be any worse than Apocalypse Wars.
