Welcome to this week’s Pull Wisely, where TMS editors Jessica Lachenal, Maddy Myers, and Yours Truly get together to compile a list of comics we think you should check out on Wednesday. So, what’s tickling our fancy this week? Check out our picks below!

Codename Baboushka #4

Codename Baboushka has really started to heat up, and it’s been nothing short of exciting to follow along with this badass heroine. If you aren’t on the train yet, now’s the time to get on!

Star Wars Vol. 2: Showdown on the Smuggler’s Moon
w: Jason Aaron
a: Simone Bianchi
p: Marvel Comics

Marvel’s done some really amazing things with the Star Wars comics, and this collected volume follows the same trend. Oh, and this TPB also has Star Wars #12, which made some real history with just a few lightsabers.

Gotham Academy #14
w: Brendan Fletcher
a: Dustin Nguyen
p: DC Comics

We’ve been big fans of Gotham Academy, and it’s exciting to see it come back with a bit of a four-issue mini-arc. Dubbed a “Gotham Academy Yearbook” story, it’s a collection of “lost adventures” from the past year. It also collects work from a bunch of amazing comics creators plus Gotham Academy’s own creative team. What’s not to like?

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #0
w: Kyle Higgins, Steve Orlando, Mairghread Scott
a: Hendry Prasetya, Corin Howell, Daniel Bayliss
p: BOOM! Studios

We’ve been excited about this new, updated version of our favorite teenagers with attitude, and now it’s finally here! This is the prequel issue preceding the main series, which kicks off in March. We’re excited for what this talented team of creators – particularly Mairghread Scott, whose creator-owned Toil and Trouble we love! – will bring to this beloved franchise. Also? Collectible covers featuring each Ranger!

Starfire #8
w: Amanda Conner
a: Emanuela Lupacchino
p: DC Comics

Things just got real now that Dick Grayson is in Key West! Of all of Kori’s battles, figuring out her feelings for budding love-interest Sol Gomez and her newly-arrived ex may be the hardest thing she’s had to face yet. But if we know Starfire, she’ll deal with it in a truly unique way.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D #1
w: Marc Guggenheim
a: German Peralta
p: Marvel Comics

Tie-in comics to TV shows are pretty hit-or-miss. But what if the TV show was based on comics characters in the first place? That’s pretty much what leads us to be excited about the new Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D title. Well, that and this badass hip-hop variant cover. We always knew Coulson was hip-hop.

Doctor Who: Four Doctors HC
w: Paul Cornell
a: Neil Edwards
p: Titan Comics

Paul Cornell, the writer of some of Doctor Who‘s best episodes (like the two-parter Human Nature/The Family of Blood) and some of the Doctor’s adventures in comics (like 2013’s super-sweet Doctor Who comics special “The Girl Who Loved Doctor Who“) came back to tell a story about four Doctors we love last year. Now collected for your convenience.

Legend Of Wonder Woman #1
w: Renae De Liz
a: Renae De Liz
p: DC Comics

Every chapter of Renae De Liz’s Legend of Wonder Woman series is already available digitally, but this week marks the release of the first of print run. It’s one of the most compelling stories about Diana that DC has published in years — and you can read our interview with De Liz about her work on this coming-of-age tale if you need further convincing on that score.

Luna the Vampire #1
w: Yasmin Sheikh
a: Yasmin Sheikh
p: IDW Publishing

The first issue of Yasmin Sheikh’s Luna the Vampire comes out with IDW this week. This project began as an indie series (with a recent Kickstarter campaign for a print run). Last October, IDW picked up the series, and this week you can get the first issue through them.

All-New All-Different Avengers #1
w: Mark Waid
a: Adam Kubert
p: IDW Publishing

The third issue of All-New All-Different Avengers hits this week — recall that the fourth issue of this series, on January 27th, will feature “Earth’s Mightiest Kiss,” so you might want to get caught up in time to read that. Also, Ms. Marvel and Miles Morales are Avengers, so there are lots of good reasons to keep up with this Marvel title.

As much as we love telling you what to do, we also love getting recommendations from our readers. So, tell us in the comments below – what will YOU be reading this week?
