We’ve been gone a while, yes. Â We took a little break while school was in session, but here we are! Â Back again, and better than ever. Â Miss the podcast? Â It’s back too, same time and location (which is here in case you’ve been living under a series of rocks). Â For now, here’s your Pull List: a quick look at what we think is going to be hot this week in comics. Â Remember, just because it’s not on the list doesn’t mean it isn’t good (but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t leave a comment telling us what you think about the list)!
