Pulp Fiction Newsletter Week of 1/11/17

Hey everyone, Ryan looked like he could use a break from the extremely arduous task of putting this newsletter together (JK jajaja) so I, Max, am taking over for now.  It’s a pretty light week for graphic novels other than the first TP of Tom King’s Batman Rebirth series, but there are A LOT of comics coming out!  As I recently started re-watching Power Rangers from the beginning, I’m most excited for Justice League/Power Rangers #1.  Writer Tom Taylor has done some great work on Injustice and All-New Wolverine and Stephen Byrne drew some excellent issues of Green Arrow recently so it should be a good one!  We’ve also got the second issues of Marvel’s mini-event Inhumans vs X-Men and “Team Batgirl”‘s Motor Crush #2.

Emmet Quinlan, an old widower rattled by dementia, isn’t just a problem for his children-his violent outbursts are more than the local cops can handle. When a tornado levels his home-as well as the surrounding West Texas town-a restored Quinlan rises from the wreckage. The enchanted sword at the eye of the storm gives him more than a sound mind and body, however. He’s now the only man who can face the otherworldly creatures the sword has drawn down to the Lone Star State…
“So much fun to watch creators find that next level. Go, Cates, go!” -Brian Michael Bendis
