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 there’s a new
Wait, you mean there are other comics to care about? FINE.
Bee and Puppycat returns to follow up a crazy-awesome transmedia issue, and Catwoman, Harley Quinn, and Tomb Raider are all beginning new story arcs. If you’ve been thinking of starting any of those series, this week is your time. But even that’s not all, so let’s go to the gallery!
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.
Bee and Puppycat #3
Bee just wants to get paid! Sure, she might not be qualified for any actual jobs — or at least any jobs in the normal world — but she's a hard worker!
Guys, the last issue of
B&Pc had the characters repairing music boxes, and those music boxes were drawn with QR codes, and those QR codes linked to secret youtube videos of the SONGS THAT THE MUSIC BOXES PLAYED, so what I'm saying is Bee and Puppycat is doing some interesting stuff.
Boom! Studios Leading Ladies Sale!
You all should definitely take a look at
Boom! Studio's current sale on Comixology. Until Thursday, you'll be able to pick up most or all of a bunch of their lady-led titles for $1 an issue. What titles are those, you ask? Well...
Lumberjanes, Fionna and Cake, Marceline and the Scream Queens, Hexed, Hacktivist, Superbia, and Bee and Puppycat. That's right. Not caught up on Bee and Puppycat in time to read this week's issue? No problem, you can buy the rest of the series for $2. Get reading!
Bravest Warriors #23
Chris is missing and it's up to the Bravest Warriors to save their good friend and kind of leader. Will the Bravest Warriors be able to save Chris from the slug people even though they're one member short? And what nefarious purpose could they have for the team's residential Emotion Lord? Join Danny, Beth, and Wallow as they try to get to the bottom of this and save their friend.
It's buyer beware when Selina purchases a new house — but Catwoman is much more interested in the treasure that lies beneath the property!
Issue #34 is the start of a new story arc for
Catwoman, so now's a good time to jump aboard.
Fables, Vol. 20: Camelot
Rose Red takes the mantle of Paladin of Hope to rally the Fables in the tragic aftermath of 'Snow White.' A new dark age calls for a new Round Table, with modern knights willing to take on a sacred quest to reassemble the shattered pieces of Fabletown.
The latest trade paperback collection of
Fables includes issues #131-136 of the series.
Harley Quinn #10
The first rule of Skate Club is... you do not mess with the Mistress of Mayhem! Harley stumbles across an underground fight club where big money winds with a body count. She's in... and she's making Sy Borgman her agent for the fights. But what happens when love gets in the way?
Harley's also getting a brand new story arc to play around in, so if you've been thinking of picking up the series, now's your chance!
The family is tested.
Basically every solicit for
Saga makes every Saga reader tear up and then tremble in fear for their favorite characters. And we haven't even gotten an update on the Will! And if you don't know what I'm talking about you should read the series so you can tremble with the rest of us.
Silver Surfer #5
The demon, Shuma Gorath, is ready to cast the Earth into Eternal Chaos! The problem is, if the Silver Surfer, the Hulk, and Dr. Strange CAN find a way to stop him... it's Dawn Greenwood who will have to pay the price... with her life.
Tomb Raider #7
Lara Croft attempts to honor the past but is dragged into a dangerous new journey. A creepy amusement park and a mysterious woman with a personal connection to the terrifying events of Yamatai Island throw Lara's world into peril once again!
Issue #7 marks the second story arc of Gail Simone's
Tomb Raider series, and this time gamewriter Rhianna Pratchett is jumping on board to co-write. Just as a reminder: this series is forming a bridge between 2013's Tomb Raider game and it's sequel, Rise of the Tomb Raider, so if you're interested in the games it's something you might want to check out.
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.
