Pulp Fiction Newsletter Week of 7/19/17

Hello everyone! I don’t have a ton to report this week. Safe travels to those braving SDCC this weekend. Wear comfortable shoes! I’m going to hand the mic over to Max…

“Hey everyone, I miss seeing you all in the store!  If you didn’t hear from Ryan, Anny, or Carl, unfortunately my Hodgkin’s Lymphoma did come back after a short remission.  I’m back in treatment but I’m doing well and hope to be cured for good and back in the store by the end of the year or early next year. 

I’d really appreciate it if you took a minute to check out my band’s new video and Kickstarter.  I’m incredibly proud of our new music and want to share it with as many people as possible.  Thanks and hope to see you all soon!”
– Max

(W) Lee Allred (A) Michael Allred
In pursuit of the time-traveling criminal known as Universo, the super-powered kids from the 30th century travel back to the 1960s to enlist the aid of the “greatest teen superhero ever” – Robin, the Boy Wonder! But Batman’s hard-boiled nemesis Egghead has stolen one of their unattended time bubbles and taken off to the Legion’s own time period. Looks like Batman has to head to the far-flung future with one group of heroes while Robin stays in the swinging sixties with another. Holy time-travel paradox!

Bettie Page #1

(W) David Avallone (A) Colton Worley
She’s more modest than Ms. Blaise, but peels more than Ms. Emma. She out-vamps Vampirella, but she’s sweeter than Honey West. She put the mod in model, and the bangs in bang-bang.

By day, Dominique, Greta, Misha, and Sarah run a nonprofit women’s shelter. At night, they each don a nun’s habit and move through Los Angeles hunting down violent abusers who have escaped justice. Their increasingly public vigilantism has earned them the nickname Sisters of Sorrow, and has drawn the ire of L.A.’s notorious anti-crime task force.

Peter Parker, The Spectacular Spider-Man #2

(W) Chip Zdarsky (A) Adam Kubert
A tech-crime ring is tightening around Spider-Man. If Ironheart will stop beating him up, she may be able to help him zero in on the source. And who is the S.H.I.E.L.D. agent showing up at Peter’s door with more info on Spidey than anyone should have?
