Pulp Fiction Newsletter 10/8/2018

HI!  Kind of a light week this week but there are some standouts!  First up, you don’t want to miss Murder Falcon #1 from Daniel Warren Johnson (Extremity).  We got a chance to check out the first two issues of this one and it is balls to the wall action in Johnson’s signature gorgeous style.  As great as Murder Falcon is, my top pick for the week has to go to My Heroes Have All Been Junkies HC from Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips! This creative powerhouse duo never disappoints and I’m always stoked to read their next work.  

If you want either of these titles added to your box (or anything else for that matter) let us know ASAP as I expect both to sell out quickly on Wednesday!

See you at the bottom…
