Welcome, comic book fans, to our weekly round-up of ten titles that we plan to pull tomorrow! Jessica, Teresa, and I had no trouble finding ten fantastic issues that you all might enjoy giving a read this week, from Patsy Walker’s new Hellcat! arc featuring Jessica Jones, to the first issue of Star Wars: Han Solo (expect a longer review of that issue from Jessica and Teresa tomorrow). The stacks were so stacked this week that I even included two more honorable mentions at the bottom of this post.
This week brings us the conclusion of a couple of ongoing arcs, like Adventure Time: Ice King, Poison Ivy: Cycle of Life and Death, and The Spire. All of those came to their exciting conclusion this week, and in all three cases, we’ve been recommending them to you all along!
There are also a handful of #1 issues on the docket this week, in addition to Han Solo. We’ve also got a new Transformers comic starting up, plus Vote Loki #1 from Marvel.
Like I said, it was pretty easy to come up with ten exciting picks this week, and I think we’ve got room for at least two more honorable mentions in the trade paperback category. In addition to the new issue of Hellcat! this week, Patsy Walker is also putting out its first TP volume, Hooked on a Feline. Also, IDW Publishing is putting out the first trade of Luna the Vampire, Yasmin Sheikh’s excellent series about a space-faring grumpy vampire gal. The first volume is appropriately titled Grumpy Space; check that out if you haven’t yet.
That’s our packed list of comics for this week. What’ve you got on your pull list?
