Weekly Pull Highlights Phantom on the Scan #1 Spider-Man: Spider's Shadow #1 Home #1  Duplicant #1 Oh heavens, there's some real heavy talk up in this episode. Political commentary, moral quandaries, emotional turmoil - important books make us have important discussions, but take solace in the fact that we still end with a debate on flare leg jeans, okay? 
Weekly Pull Highlights Geiger #1 The Rise #1 Silver Coin #1 Project Patron #1 Indie titles are really flexing on taking older tropes and stories and completely flipping them upside down. This week, we've got a "super" spin on post-apocalyptic wastelands, a bloody take on horror anthologies, the corporate prequel to the zombie sequel, and the hidden figures behind good old Supes' himself. Man, we love indie books. 
Reel Extra: Godzilla vs. Kong It's a battle for the ages - the giant ape who just wants to be left alone, versus man's protector, the ever alpha mega-lizard. Who wins, who loses - is it the best movie ever? It's Godzilla vs. Kong! And it's... fine? Look, we're not breaking any barriers with this flick, but come find out if our predictions were right anyway! 
Weekly Pull Highlights Beta Ray Bill #1 Silk #1 Destiny, NY #1 There's TWO WHOLE MARVEL BOOKS in this week's episode. I know, I know, it's basically blasphemy. But with new titles focused on Beta Ray Bill and Cindy Moon, it's not THAT surprising... plus, and excellent new indie title that's the perfect lovechild of manga and comic. Oh, and if you see an old wizard around... just ignore him, okay? 
Secret Shortbox: Mary Shelley Another edition of our segment the Secret Shortbox, where we theorize what our favorite authors would be reading off the comics rack! This week, we're giving our picks for the mother of modern monsters herself, Mary Shelley! 
Reel Extra: Zack Snyder's Justice League After years of talking smack as non-believers, we sat down and committed the time to watch the newly released Zack Snyder cut of Justice League. And honestly guys... we were wrong. This movie is awesome! A relatively non-spoilery episode, we break down WHY it's better, and why having a 4 hour runtime is actually it's biggest strength. 
Weekly Pull Highlights Orphan and the Five Beasts #1 Ultramega #1 Midnight Western Theatre #1 Black Knight: Curse of the Ebony Blade #1 Well now, how about THAT! We made to episode #100, and it's all thanks to you, our amazing listeners. This episode is a bit of a long one, but it's because we have some really great books this week that dive into some really intense themes. And lord knows, we can't pass up a chance to go hyper analytical... it's just what we do. 
Graphic Novelties: Aster of Pan What happens when you mix the Hunger Games with the 2004 Vince Vaughn film, Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story? Well, believe it or not, it's probably this book from French filmmaker, Merwan. But don't be deceived by this peculiar summary - this book is a pleasure to read, with incredible storytelling, beautiful artwork, and engaging character development that will you have you fist pumping the air with each page turn. We promise, this is one you won't want to skip out on. 
Weekly Pull Highlights Karmen #1 Proctor Valley Road #1 Were there quite a few new books that dropped this week? Yes. Did we want to talk about all of them? No, because we want to make recommendations for you, not just announce new releases like an audio listicle. Does that mean this is a short episode? Not really - y'all know we like to talk (a lot). 
Weekly Pull Highlights Nocterra #1 Eniac #1 BRZRKR #1 Demon Days: X-Men Dead Dogs Bite #1 This week is just a giant station for all the hype-trains that have come into town! From Keanu being Keanu, to Skynet meets Ultron, to Wolverine in his absolute best form, there's some really interesting stuff in stores this week. 
Weekly Pull Highlights By the Horns #1 Stray Dogs #1 Marvel Voices Legacy #1 Nuclear Family #1 Two Moons #1 Themes in comics tend to come in waves (vampires, anyone?), so when we get a few books that shift the tide into untouched waters, it's a nice reprieve. This week has all sorts of time periods, perspectives, and purposes - and it's definitely appreciated. 
Weekly Pull Highlights Shadow Doctor #1 Black Friday #1 Hollow Heart #1 This week might be a quickie, but we're sharing some excellent new titles, one of which takes a horror-filled looked at the evils of consumerism and corporate commercialism. ...did we mention we have new merch?!

Weekly Pull Highlights The Shepherd #1 Orcs! #1 Casual Fling #1 Radiant Black #1 Look, sometimes a rant comes out of left-field and we just really need to share our feelings, okay? From unexpected hits, to misses that get bigger the more we talk about them, we discuss the big indie #1s of the week. 
Weekly Pull Highlights Maniac of New York #1 Fear Case #1 Chained to the Grave #1 Luna #1 Redemption #1 We love it when fiction pushes the usual boundaries! From esoteric horror, to reality-bending westerns, to visual representations of drug trips, this week has all sorts of weird and wonderful goodies. And hey - we love an all-indie week, don't you? 
Roundup: Future State - Week 4 It's our final week of Future State titles! Let's wrap things up with a handful of titles that were even more removed from the timeline - but that may have made them even better. We'll be covering Aquaman, Batman/Superman, Legion of Superheroes, Suicide Squad, and Superman vs Imperious Lex. Yeehaw, we're almost through it, y'all! 
Weekly Pull Highlights Iron Fist: Heart of the Dragon #1 Rain Like Hammers #1 Crimson Flower #1 I Breathed A Body #1 Abbot 1973 #1 From social media managers losing their souls, to coping with loneliness and depression, we're getting deep, but also awesome, with new indie titles this week. Hey, they can't all be rainbows, right? 
Roundup: Future State - Week 3 Oh snap, it's more Future State #1s! This week, we talk about Catwoman, Superman: Worlds of War, Immortal Wonder Woman, Nightwing and Shazam - and when we say talk, we mean try and figure out when in the heck these books all take place in the timeline! I think we need a roadmap, DC, sheesh. Let's get rolling! 
Roundup: Future State - Week 2 It's round two (pun intended) of our Future State Roundups! This week, we're covering Dark Detective, Green Lantern, Justice League, Kara Zor-El Superwoman, Robin Eternal Superman/Wonder Woman, & Teen Titans - a whole lot of references without a whole lot of payoff. We give you the rundown on what to pick up, what to skip, and what we preferred of all the new titles. 
Weekly Pull Highlights Star Wars the High Republic #1 Eternals #1 Scout's Honor #1 Ninja Nuns #1 The Last Witch #1 We're back from break and boy were there some great titles this week! Whether you're looking for something adorable, something dark, or something regal, there are all sorts of options. There's even something for folks looking for a comic about ninja nuns fighting the Flying Spaghetti Monster! Comics are weird, y'all. Happy New Year! 
Roundup: Future State - Week 1 In the aftermath of Dark Knights: Death Metal, DC is putting the rest of their series on hold to make room for the exciting developments in Future State! We're giving you a "roundup" of all the new titles this week - including Wonder Woman, the Next Batman, Superman of Metropolis, Harley Quinn, Swamp Thing, and the Flash - and filling you in on what's a must-read or an easy pass. 
Reel Extra: Wonder Woman 1984 Delayed for months thanks to quarantine, the next installment of the Themiscyran hero is here... and it was not what we expected. Or wanted. Or asked for. Boy howdy, there's a lot to unpack here. Buckle up for a quite long (and quite aggressive) episode of REEL EXTRA!  {Spoiler Warning at 23:12!}
Graphic Novelties: Reckless  Look here, Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips - you guys are seriously killing this whole quarantine thing. Not only did we get PULP not long ago, we now have the start of a whole series of graphic novels on the way, with this being the first introduction to Ethan Reckless and his associates. Could y'all quit making the rest of us look bad, please? (But don't stop making stuff, it's all great, really.)

Weekly Pull Highlights Post Americana #1 King in Black: The Immortal Hulk #1 Sh*tshow #1 Red X-mas #1 The holidays are upon us, but it's going to be an apocolyptic Christmas if our comic pull has anything to say about it! From another King in Black tie-in, to some "the world has basically ended, what's going on now?" books, to Santa dealing with some really heavy loss, it's maybe the end of the world... but isn't that kind of appropriate in 2020? Merry Christmas, folks! 
Weekly Pull Highlights SWORD #1 Home Sick Pilots #1 Vampirella: The Dark Powers #1 Piecemeal 'Tis the season to be creeped out by haunted houses, apparently! Between a no-end-home experience in Home Sick Pilots #1, to the mysterious mind-games (pun intended) from Cullen Bunn's one-shot 'Piecemeal,' there's a whole lot of horror going on. And, as always, we are more than here for it.
