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!
This week’s new releases include
Bee and Puppycat, She-Hulk, Tomb Raider, and The Wicked and the Divine, but here’s the stuff you should make sure not to overlook. Each comic in the following gallery is listed with its official teaser summary (in italics) and my own commentary (below that) where applicable. And just as a general reminder, due to the significant amount of time it was taking to put together Pull It Together, our PIT galleries are now leaner and meaner, focusing on the starts of new story arcs, new creative teams, new series, and trade releases.
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.
Meet Selina Kyle - Crime Boss of Gotham City! Spinning out of events in Batman Eternal , Selina has accepted the family mantle and embraced her true criminal side, but is Gotham City ready for her reign? And with the Cat away, who's the stranger haunting the empty rooftops of the city? Don't miss the start of a bold new direction for Selina Kyle by the new creative team of novelist Genevieve Valentine and Garry Brown (Five Ghosts , Iron Patriot ).
Catwoman's getting a new creative team and a new start! Sounds like an excellent time to jump into the series, or to re-check it out if you'd taken it off your pull list.
Edward Scissorhands #1 (of 5)
An all-new adventure revisiting Edward Scissorhands five decades after the end of the fan-favorite movie! In a castle just outside a sleepy suburban town, a brilliant inventor created Edward Scissorhands... but left him tragically unfinished. Two generations of exile have left Edward digging through abandoned experiments, but once he wakes up a creature left buried, he discovers he isn't the only one missing a vital piece. As Edward tries to fix a grave mistake, he comes face to face with a teenage girl who was sure he was only myth... despite the stories her grandmother told her about the man she could never touch.
Edward Scissorhands finally comes to stores! So put on some Danny Elfman and curl up on the couch with the first issue of the new miniseries.
Father's Day #1 (of 4)
As a mob enforcer he was called the Eastside Butcher, but twenty years later Silas has found peace. That is, until his abandoned daughter shows up to give him a piece of her mind... and unwittingly leads a legion of hit men to settle accounts with Silas!
What this solicit fails to mention is that said abandoned daughter is a young hitwoman of considerable skills herself. Estranged dad-daughter hired killer team? Sign me up. Writer Mike Richardson and artist Gabriel Guzmán collaborate.
Harley Quinn Vol. 1: Hot in the City
The sensational series that gave Harley Quinn her own New 52 spotlight is collected in hardcover for the first time, from the star-studded #0 issue to issue #8! Don't miss Harley's big move to Coney Island as she becomes a roller derby queen — all while she carries on in her criminal career!
Interested in seeing how the series wound up? Just waiting for the trade on principle? Well, now the collected edition is out!
Check out our preview of it here!
The Last Unicorn
The best-selling graphic novel of the adaptation of Peter S. Beagle's novel with art by Renae De Liz. The Last Unicorn is a tale for any age about the wonders of magic, the power of love, and the tragedy of loss. A unicorn, alone in her enchanted wood, discovers that she may be the last of her kind. Reluctant at first, she sets out on a journey to find her fellow unicorns.
The Last Unicorn graphic novel adaptation came out back in 2011, and now for the first time it is available as a nice, soft, floppy, paperback edition. I thought you should know.
Are you looking forward to picking up a title this week that isn’t in Pull It Together? Mention it in the comments and I’ll take a look! Just remember: PIT only covers one week at a time, not one month! If it’s not coming out this week, it won’t be on the list.
