Pulp Fiction Newsletter Week of 2/29/17

I’m (Max) back and first of all I apologize for Ryan’s egregious misspelling of “The Wild Storm” two weeks in a row.  Believe you me, he has been thoroughly chastised.

It’s another big week of comics and we’ve got some great Deals of the Week for you!  Having already read some preview copies of Extremity #1 & 2 and Royal City #1 I can tell you they are a couple of the best first issues I’ve read in awhile.  Fans of Lemire’s previous work will find nothing to complain about in Royal City and Extremity is an awesome new sci-fi/fantasy book from soon-to-be superstar Daniel Warren Johnson that will knock your socks off with the art and keep you around with the incredible world he has created.
