Pulp Fiction Newsletter Week of 6/6/18

Hello everyone! There's just no way around it folks. There's a ton of stuff competing for your dollar this week. New creative teams, bold new directions, matrimony…it's a lot. To help with that (but mostly because we still have a ton), this Wednesday we're going to be selling bundles of Justice League No Justice #1 thru 4 for $4.99. No Justice sets up the new Justice League series as well as Justice League Odyssey and Justice League Dark. 

Beyond all that, if you're a Northlanders fan, there's a bunch of Brian Wood Viking goodness this week between the Black Road HC and a new series inspired by Lone Wolf and Cub. The second issue of Death or Glory is this week as well. The first issue was great and I look forward to more of Bengal's beautiful artwork. 

Please note that there's been an adjustment to the dates for Jim Higgins' summer art class. The first class date has been bumped so that there are three dates in July and one in August. Be sure to email Jim with any questions you might have.


Hi everyone, Max here.  My band, Half Past Two, just released a new video for our cover of The Killers' "Smile Like You Mean It" and it would be awesome if you checked it out (CLICK HERE).  If you're so inclined, we also have a huge show coming up, check out the poster below and click for more info.  Thanks!

Justice League #1

(W) Scott Snyder (A) Mark Morales (A/CA) Jim Cheung

"THE TOTALITY" part one! A brand-new era begins here! Comics legends Scott Snyder and Jim Cheung launch the Justice League into a cosmos-shaking mystery that will draw out their most terrible foes…in ways our heroes couldn't possibly imagine! In this debut issue, Martian Manhunter struggles to protect the team from an incoming threat that will shatter the world as they know it, while a familiar face strikes out on a dark path…

The Immortal Hulk #1

(W) Al Ewing (A) Joe Bennett (CA) Alex Ross

You'd never notice the man. He doesn't like to be noticed. He's quiet. Calm. Never complains. If someone were to walk up and shoot him in the head… all he'd do is die.
Until night falls. And someone else gets up again.
The man's name is Banner.
The horror is THE IMMORTAL HULK.


Batman #48

(W) Tom King (A/CA) Mikel Janin

"THE BEST MAN" part one! Batman and Catwoman decide it might be better to elope rather than go through some big, stodgy wedding ceremony, but no sooner do they put their marriage on the fast track than The Joker appears! And when The Joker kidnaps the Caped Crusader, will he give his old foe a piece of his mind or bash in his brains?

Batman Prelude to the Wedding Nightwing vs Hush

(W) Tim Seeley (A) Travis Moore (CA) Rafael Albuquerque

Dick Grayson has a lot of responsibility. Being the original partner to Batman, he's the natural choice to be Bruce Wayne's best man. So if anyone has to get to the wedding, it's going to be him. Too bad Hush has other plans-and maybe Bruce Wayne does, too!


Deadpool #1

(W) Skottie Young (A/CA) Nic Klein

Skottie Young and Nic Klein bring you the craziest tales of the Regeneratin' Degenerate yet! It's been a while since Deadpool's had to merc to make ends meet, but things are tough all over. While Deadpool tries to get his humble mercenary-for-hire business back off the ground, a catastrophic threat so unfathomably huge, so mind-breakingly cataclysmic it defies description, is heading toward Earth, and there's only ONE PERSON WHO CAN STOP IT!!!
Oh no, wait…it's not Wade, is it? Oh, %$@#. It's Wade.


Ant-Man and the Wasp #1 (of 5)

(W) Mark Waid (A) Javi Garron (CA) David Nakayama

Wasp was just trying to help Ant-Man get home to Earth to see his daughter…but a little problem got in the way.  Very little. Subatomic, in fact, as Scott Lang was lost in the vast spaces between atoms! Now, Nadia is his only hope of rescue…if only he would listen long enough for her to save them! From master storyteller Mark Waid (CAPTAIN AMERICA, CHAMPIONS) and Marvel Young Gun artist Javier Garrón (SECRET WARRIORS, STAR-LORD) comes a story of a big journey getting smaller all the time!


The Unexpected #1

(W) Steve Orlando (A) Cary Nord (A/CA) Ryan Sook

In the aftermath of DARK NIGHTS: METAL, the DC Universe has been forever changed as new heroes are called out of the shadows. Amid this all is Janet Fals…Firebrand! Once a paramedic dedicated to saving lives, she must now start a fight once every 24 hours to feed the Conflict Engine that's replaced her heart. But Janet's heart isn't just a curse-it's a beacon, drawing out both the mysterious Neon the Unknown and the seductive, malevolent Bad Samaritan. One of them wants to cut out her heart, the other wants to save it-but neither of them knows the true danger hidden within that will kick off a superhero manhunt ranging from Thanagar to the deepest heart of the Dark Multiverse!

Doctor Strange #1

(W) Mark Waid (A/CA) Jesus Saiz

The Eye of Agamotto is closed! Doctor Stephen Strange has lost his connection to the Earth's arcane power, and he can't wait to recover while nightmares press against the seams of our reality. Tony Stark offers a 21st-century solution: When astral travel fails, try astronautical travel. Enter Doctor Strange: Space-Explorer Supreme! New spells, allies and enemies – new and old – await Strange beyond the stars, along with corners and secrets of the Marvel Universe seen here for the first time! Space is endless, but time is short. After years of threats, Stephen's bill for magic use is coming due – who will come to collect?!


The Man of Steel #2 (of 6)

(W) Brian Michael Bendis (A) Evan Shaner, Steve Rude (CA) Ivan Reis, Joe Prado

With an arsonist loose in Metropolis, Superman's powers are almost useless in finding the culprit. And back at the Daily Planet, everyone wants to know what's going on with Lois Lane. How can Clark hold on to the secret of what happened to Lois and Jon much longer?


Sword Daughter #1

(W) Brian Wood (A) Mack Chater (CA) Lauren Affe

The Forty Swords came at night and murdered the entire village, save for two people: the infant Elsbeth and her grief-stricken father, Dag. Setting off on a revenge quest that will span the width of Viking Age Europe, they find the key to repairing their damaged relationship lies in the swords they carry. Created by Brian Wood (Northlanders, The Massive, DMZ) and Mack Chater (Briggs Land, Lazarus), Sword Daughter is a visually stunning, emotionally poignant story of parental guilt and acceptance of loss.

Dazzler #1

(W) Magdalene Visaggio (A) Laura Braga (CA) Elizabeth Torque

The Brooklyn punk scene has never been cooler with DAZZLER's new band taking center stage. But while she's trying to find herself and reconnect to the one thing she's always loved, Dazzler stumbles upon a truly toxic part of the underground punk scene. When a new and violent gang threatens the young Inhuman fans that follow her from venue to venue, Dazzler may have to turn to her own past to provide some guidance–and butt kicking.
Written by the Eisner-nominated Magdalene Visaggio, and drawn by the incredible Laura Braga, DAZZLER: X SONG is an energetic epic that you won't want to miss.

Death or Glory #2

(W) Rick Remender (A/CA) Bengal

Hot off the heels of a heist run on her ex's criminal empire, Glory realizes just what it is she stole… and how much trouble she's in now.
