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 ongoings include new installments of Black Widow, featuring an adamantium-clad guest star; Rat Queens, presumably featuring a lot of tentacles; and no less than three Wonder Woman books, two of them trade collections. But the real stars are Marvel’s brand new infamous female Thor, who makes her first appearance in the newly renumbered Thor #1, and Gotham Academy, DC Comics’ new teen series about kids at a Gotham City prep school where mysterious things happen. Go forth and read!
Each comic in the following gallery is listed with its official teaser summary (in italics) and my own commentary (below that) where applicable.
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.
Susana Polo thought she'd get her Creative Writing degree from Oberlin, work a crap job, and fake it until she made it into comics. Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
