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 #27, Batwoman #6, Green Arrow #29, Wonder Woman #28, Star Wars #34
This Week’s Must Read: Dark Nights: Metal #1
Events are usually hit or miss, but with Dark Nights: Metal again uniting the power-team of Scott Snyder and Greg Capulla, I’m in. I didn’t, however, read either of the tie-in issues — Dark Days: The Forge or Dark Days: The Casting — because events are so often bogged down by countless tie-in issues and it can become just too much. The word is those issues were good and did tease where this event series will go, but hopefully Dark Nights: Metal #1 will be able to stand on its own. Regardless, I’m amped to explore a new dark and sinister corner of multiverse from one of the best creative teams in the biz.
Pull List: Aquaman #27 [Review], Dark Nights Metal #1 [Review], Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor: Year Three #8, Green Arrow #29 [Review], Injustice 2 #19 (Digital Edition), Knights Of The Dinner Table #246, Sheena #0 [Review]
This Week’s Must Read: Future Quest Presents #1 [Review]
Future Quest was a surprisingly enjoyable take on the classic action cartoons of Hanna-Barbera. And yet, I was disappointed that we didn’t get to see my favorite – Space Ghost – really come into action until the final chapters. Team Future Quest writer Jeff Parker with Ariel Olivetti (who did the art on the recent Green Lantern/Space Ghost team-up) seems a sure-fire way to satisfy my cravings for a Space Ghost focused series.
