Pulp Fiction Newsletter Week of 2/10/16

Hello everyone. Fans of the dark stuff have a couple of new series to check out this week with The Dark and Bloody (definitely aiming for the Harrow County crowd) and Second Sight by David Hine, creator of Strange Embrace (very disturbing confessional horror). But Jonesy #1 is there to keep it light. We’re getting a few popular titles back in stock this week as well including Spider-Man Deadpool #1 just in time for the new movie.

On the trade side, the Black Science hardcover is better late than never, the critically-acclaimed current Constantine series gets its first collection, and Eltingville Club is finally here, Evan Dorkin’s skewering of comic book retail culture. Can’t wait! If you’re a subscriber, let us know in an email if you’d like us to put anything aside. See you at the bottom…

Jonesy #1 DEAL OF THE WEEK $1.99!

(W) Sam Humphries (A/CA) Caitlin Rose Boyle
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Jonesy is a comic about love that makes us swoon! Sam Humphries (Legendary Star Lord, Citizen Jack) and fresh talent Caitlin Rose Boyle (Buck n’ Lou & the Night Crew) bring something special to BOOM! Box with this series about mad-cap shenanigans, friendship, pals, being a teenager, and figuring out who you are…with a teen cupid twist! If you like Giant Days, dig adorkable romance stories, or just want to smile from ear to ear after reading a comic, you’ll fall in love with Jonesy! Jonesy is a self-described “cool dork” who spends her time making zines nobody reads, watching anime, and listening to riot grrrl bands and 1D simultaneously. But she has a secret nobody knows. She has the power to make people fall in love! Anyone. With anything. She’s a cupid in plaid. With a Tumblr. There’s only one catch-it doesn’t work on herself. She’s gonna have to find love the old-fashioned way, and in the meantime, figure out how to distract herself from the real emotions she inevitably has to face when her powers go wrong…
