Pulp Fiction Newsletter Week of 2/15/17

Get ready for an awesome week! Not only is DC launching three new incredible-looking series (*my top pick is Super Sons!) but the mind blowing Amazing Spider-Man Clone Conspiracy event concludes AND Sex Criminals returns after an entirely-too-long hiatus!  Add in the first TP volume of Seven to Eternity and an HC reprint of Bronze Age classic Batman and the Outsiders and this week almost has too much awesome to handle!

Culver customers can look forward to a bunch of new additions to the graphic novel trading post and Long Beach customers are in for an even bigger surprise. Changes are afoot! It’s time to get pretty excited!

*For the record, my pick is The Wildstorm. If you don’t know anything about Warren Ellis’ relationship with the Wildstorm universe, here are a couple of great articles on the subject.     -Ryan

Super Sons #1
DEAL OF THE WEEK 50% OFF

(W) Peter J. Tomasi (A) Jorge Jimenez

“When I grow up” part one! The sons of Batman and Superman have graduated to their own monthly comic-but if they want to survive, they’re going to have to share it! Writer Peter J. Tomasi (BATMAN & ROBIN, SUPERMAN) teams with rising-star artist Jorge Jimenez (EARTH 2) to bring you the adventures of the World’s Smallest. This debut issue looks at the lives of Robin and Superboy and their destiny to follow in their fathers’ footsteps, while we meet a new villain whose ascension parallels the boys’ own understanding of their powers-except that he believes it’s his right to rule over every being on the planet!

Batwoman Rebirth #1
DEAL OF THE WEEK 50% OFF
(W) Marguerite Bennett, James Tynion IV (A) Ben Oliver, Steve Epting

The newest chapter of Batwoman’s life begins here! Monster Venom is the hottest new bioweapon on the market…and to break up the syndicate spreading it around the world, Batwoman’s going to have to return to the place where she spent some of her darkest hours! Learn where Batwoman comes from, and where she’s going, in this one-shot prologue to the first big Batwoman epic, “The Many Arms Of Death”!

The Wild Storm #1
DEAL OF THE WEEK 50% OFF

(W) Warren Ellis (A) Jon Davis-Hunt

A troubled woman, barred by her employer from continuing her research, walks miserably through New York City. It takes her a moment to notice that everybody else is looking up. A man has been thrown from the upper floor of the Halo skyscraper. And that woman-Angela Spica, sick from the transhuman implants she’s buried in her own body-is the only person who can save him. What she doesn’t know is that the act of saving that one man will tip over a vast and secret house of cards that encloses the entire world, if not the inner solar system. This is how the Wild Storm begins, and it may destroy covert power structures, secret space programs and even all of human history. New York Times best-selling writer Warren Ellis (TRANSMETROPOLITAN, RED, PLANETARY) returns to DC to curate Jim Lee’s WildStorm world, with this debut issue resetting the WildStorm universe with new iterations of Grifter, Voodoo, the Engineer, Jenny Sparks and others.
