Pulp Fiction Newsletter Week of 9/20/17

Hello everyone! After what seemed like a bit of a drought for Indy Deals of the Week, we have Gasolina #1 for 50% off. The premise sounds cool, it’s a great title, and the cover is solid. There are couple of other new indy books this week as well that might grab you depending on your interest in biblical monster cruises, flying monkeys or robot dolphins. DC’s Metal story rocks on this week with a couple of tie-ins, Wonder Woman crosses over with Conan, and Ms. Marvel meets…Ms. Marvel.

On the trade side, Dark Knight Returns III Master Race has FINALLY ended and gets its first collection, the book that most likely got Rick Remender his Marvel gigs gets a fancy treatment, and Harley celebrates her 25th anniversary.

I can’t speak for the Culver store, but we still have a bunch of copies of Redlands #1 and #2 here and after getting caught up this week, I just want to let the horror folks know you’re missing out on a beautiful book.

See you at the bottom…

When her celebrity crush comes to her school to film a TV episode, she has to pretend to be totally uninterested even as she desperately tries to get close to him. However, she’s not the only one who’s not what she appears… her dreamboat isn’t just a pretty face either!
