Pull Wisely: The Mary Sue’s Weekly Comic Counsel and Chat
Video, the written word - we do it ALL.
It’s time for Pull Wisely (why yes, that is an Indiana Jones reference), where we give you short snippets of which comics we’re looking forward to each week—and then ask for your recommendations in the comments. And because we like giving you info in a way that’s pleasing to you, you’ve got the video up top, our Top 10 written out below, or you can earn extra credit by checking out both. The possibilities are endless.
Ours will by no means be a complete list of ALL THE THINGS; after all, we just can’t read everything—or heck, even keep up with how many awesome comics are out there, period. But we know you all love some good stuff, so let us (and your fellow TMSers) know what you’re excited about this week!
