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!
Many comics return this week, including
Princess Ugg, Sleepy Hollow, and Harley Quinn’s teamup story with Power Girl. But here are the comics you definitely shouldn’t overlook. Each comic in the following gallery is listed with its official teaser summary (in italics) and my own commentary (below that) where applicable.
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.
