Welcome to Pull It Together, where the goal is to narrow the massive field of comic book titles to the ones you shouldn’t overlook. It isn’t about what’s on my pull list, it’s about what could be on yours!
Okay, I know, there probably aren’t a lot of you out there who are rushing to the store to get your books on the evening before Thanksgiving, and I am including myself there. But you should know that we’re all missing out on reading Matt Fraction and Christian Ward’s genderbent adaptation of the Odyssey as soon as possible, and that is a great tragedy.
There's no cross domain hackery or tracking voodoo, it's just some sweet jQuery animations.
Please, think of the animations.
In the meantime, enjoy the html version below. I guess. If that's your thing.
Batwoman Vol. 5: Webs
Batwoman faces a threat that might make her rethink her career as a hero! But that's not Kate's only concern, as Maggie has a surprising revelation—and her angry ex-husband shows up! Can Kate and Maggie work together to discover the secret of the Wolf Spider?
Batwoman issues #25-31, as well as Batwoman Annual #1 are collected in this handy volume.
Capture Creatures #1
Becky Dreistadt (Adventure Time 2014 Annual ) and Frank Gibson (The Amazing World of Gumball ) are two of the most clever and visually arresting creators in the business, and this one of their most ambitious projects ever. Over a hundred wonderful and terrifying creatures have suddenly appeared on earth. Two teens investigate the origins of these curious creatures and how they can stop those who are trying to destroy them.
Capture Creatures from our interview with Dreistadt and Gibson? Well, you should. It looks adorable. And it starts this week.
Catwoman Vol. 5: Race of Theives
As the fabled Catbird of Gotham City, Selina Kyle fights alongside Batman to keep the city safe. So why does it all feel so wrong? Who is behind this twisted—yet strangely pleasant—version of Gotham City?
Catwoman issues #25, and #27-34, now all in one handy volume.
An epic 26 centuries in the making: In the aftermath of a galactic war a hundred years long, Odyssia the Clever Champion and her compatriots begin their longest, strangest trip yet: the one home. A gender-bent eye-popping psychedelic science fiction odyssey begins here, by Matt Fraction (Casanova , Sex Criminals , Satellite Sam ) and Christian Ward (Infinite Vacation , Olympus ).
Sing, Muse: Matt Fraction's Ody-C is finally here! It's the Odyssey. In space. Where most of the female characters male. And most of the male characters are female (rumor has it there are some non-binary genderswaps in the story as well). Also the first issue's cover folds out into a massive eight page wide picture. Don't tell me you're not at least a little intrigued.
