Pulp Fiction Newsletter Week of 5/10/17

Hell everyone! This year’s Free Comic Book Day was another resounding success! We saw a lot of new faces that I hope to see again soon. Thank you to our regular customers that came in as well!

This Wednesday we have deals of the week for a new Boom Box book for The Goonies fans and the return of the Secret Warriors. Not too much to report on the trade side, but light weeks are always a good opportunity to try something new from the past! Like maybe if you enjoy really good crime comics, you might enjoy The Creep, a wonderful graphic novel from the writer of BPRD/Rumble and the artist of Green River Killer/Batman 66/New Deal. Oh look here’s this very convenient video review…see you at the bottom.

Misfit City #1
DEAL OF THE WEEK 50% OFF
(W) Kiwi Smith, Kurt Lustgarten (A) Naomi Franquiz

Nothing’s happened in Wilder’s hometown since they filmed that cult kids’ adventure movie there in the 80s…but that’s ancient history.

Secret Warriors #1
DEAL OF THE WEEK 50% OFF

(W) Matthew Rosenberg (A/CA) Javi Garron
A SECRET EMPIRE TIE-IN!
Captain America has been revealed to be an agent of Hydra – and he’s coming after Inhumans!
S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Daisy Johnson, a.k.a. QUAKE, wants no part of Hydra, so she goes underground, teaming up with MS. MARVEL, MOON GIRL & DEVIL DINOSAUR, KARNAK and INFERNO to set things right – for the Inhumans, but also for the entire country! Penned by rising star Matthew Rosenberg (Kingpin, Rocket Raccoon, 4 Kids Walk Into A Bank) and drawn by the immensely talented Javier GarrĂ³n (Death of X, Inhumans vs X-Men), SECRET WARRIORS is one part coming-of-age story, one part spy-thriller, all action and all heart. Don’t miss the next (and final?) generation of Inhumans as they take the Marvel Universe by storm!

Titans #11

(W) Dan Abnett, Benjamin Percy, Christopher Priest (A/CA) Brett Booth, Norm Rapmund
“THE LAZARUS CONTRACT” part one! When Deathstroke discovers that Wally West’s return holds the key to bringing his son back from the dead, he’ll stop at nothing to do just that! Don’t miss the debut chapter of the epic crossover event that you’ve been waiting for!

Rocket #1

(W) Al Ewing (A) Adam Gorham
GET READY FOR A LIFE OF SPACECRIME!
It’s a dirty universe out there, even when you’re not regularly mistaken for trash-foraging vermin. And it’s about to get dirtier. He thought his paws were clean, that he was on the up-and-up. But then an old flame swam back into his life, and he was back in the game… the heist game. If you need a safe cracked, a vault busted or a score taken…ask for Rocket. Just don’t call him a raccoon.

Bug! The Adventures of Forager #1
(W) Lee Allred (A/CA) Michael Allred

An all-new Young Animal miniseries begins! Forager is just one of the Hive before he breaks out of his cocoon and finds himself in a mysterious house in an unknown realm. There he meets all kinds of strange creatures: a ghostly girl, a talking teddy bear and otherworldly weirdos that have literally jumped out of his worst nightmares. But these interdimensional oddballs are nothing compared to the evil General Electric, who is on the hunt for a reality-bending metal that could alter the fabric of life itself. To stay one step ahead of him and preserve the multiverse, Forager must travel through alternate dimensions to seek the metal and, hopefully, catch up with that cagey stuffed bear. If he does it, will he finally be able to distinguish himself as a New God? DC’s Young Animal celebrates Jack Kirby’s centenary with this new six-issue miniseries-and who better to tackle this task than the Eisner Award-winning Allred clan! Featuring scripts by Lee Allred (BATMAN ’66), art by Michael Allred (Silver Surfer) and colors by Laura Allred (Lady Killer), BUG! is truly a family affair.

Zombies Assemble #1
(W) Yusaku Komiyama, Jim Zub (A) Yusaku Komiyama

The original manga is adapted into English for the first time!
Time and again, the Avengers have assembled to save the Earth from destruction. But they’ve never had to face a threat as gruesome and UNDEAD as this one! Now, Earth’s Mightiest Heroes must fight to contain an outbreak of horrifying zombies, and stop them from spreading across the Earth! But not all of the Avengers will escape uninfected…

Star Wars The Screaming Citadel #1
(W) Kieron Gillen (A) Marco Checchetto

“THE SCREAMING CITADEL” – PART 1
Rebel pilot and rogue archaeologist wander side by side into the darkest shadows of the galaxy as Luke Skywalker reluctantly teams up with Doctor Aphra! The Doctor makes Luke an offer he can’t afford to pass up…one that leads him to a very rare gathering at the heart of the infamous Screaming Citadel. Will Luke find what he’s looking for? Can Aphra be trusted? Or will they both wind up victims of the Citadel’s Queen?

AD After Death Book 03
(W) Scott Snyder (A) Jeff Lemire

Jonah Cooke is on the run from a future he helped create, a future where death has been genetically cured. Yet he’s finally come to accept that no matter how long he lives, he’ll never escape his past. And now he’s done the one thing that may put everyone left alive in jeopardy. The shocking conclusion of the sci-fi epic by two of comics’ most acclaimed creators is here.
