Pulp Fiction Newsletter Week of 2/22/17

What’s up everybody? Max curated the newsletter this week, BUT he gave up intro duties so I’m signing it! How about last week huh? Super Sons soooold out. The art drew me in and I have to say it was crazy charming. We’ve already ordered more so if you missed out check back in a few weeks or if you’re on on the pull service ask to have it put aside. Did you read The Wildstorm? No? That’s disappointing. Oh wait you did read it, but you didn’t like it? That’s even worse! I kid I kid…kind of.

This week we have a new Elektra series, with her Netflix duds it looks like. We also have a new Image book from Greg Rucka and Leandro Fernandez; now that’s a hot creative team. Rounding the week’s deals out, we have what looks like Mike Carey continuing to explore how Hellish expatriates find a place in our realm.  Light week on the trade side, but some strong contenders with the first collections of Snotirl and Wonder Woman Rebirth.

See you at the bottom…
