Pulp Fiction Newsletter Week of 5/11/16

Hello everyone! We’d like to say thank you to those who came to support us and the LA Food Bank for Free Comic Book Day. I would like to personally thank anyone who avoided Civil War spoilers on Saturday, but I did finally get out to see it! I look forward to conversations, but do ask that you use your library voices for the next week in respect for others.

No deals of the week this Wednesday, but we will have a few follow-up issues to new great series (especially House of Penance and The Fix).  You may notice this week that we have a few copies of Heavy Metal Magazine on the shelf that we wouldn’t normally have. That’s because this is the first issue with Grant Morrisson as the brand new Editor-and-Chief of the legendary magazine! We hope he can return the historic publication to its former glory.

On the trade side, we have another round of All New All Different Marvel trades including All New Wolverine and Spider-Gwen as well as deluxe hardcovers of Kingdom Come and The Massive!

See you at the bottom..
