I love comics. They have the ability to transport you to new places, telling a story unlike anything you’ve experienced. Comics are a special form of media; pictures, words, it’s a beautiful thing. My goal is to introduce everyone to the world of comics and the power it holds. It’s a special place that not many people have visited. Let me recommend a few comics that I’m sure will hook you and have you never looking back.
Welcome to The Pull List.

The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #15
Story: Ryan North
Art: Erica Henderson
Colors: Rico Renzi
Cover: Erica Henderson
Publisher: Marvel Comics
Squirrel Girl and Ant-Man! It’s the team-up you probably NEVER thought you’d see! Although, if you thought about it for a bit, you probably WOULD expect to see it at some point, since they both hang out with tiny animals and are both super heroes. Honestly, I’m a little surprised it hasn’t happened sooner. Anyway, besides squirrels (adorable) and ants (so tiny, so bitey), this issue also includes wrestling AND philosophy. YES. Finally, am I right?? I am prepared to say this is the #1 BEST COMIC you can buy that features squirrels, ants, wrestling and philosophy!! I am also prepared to say that this is the ONLY comic you can buy that features these four things, but heck, we all have to be the change we want to see in the world, right?

VOYAGE INTO THE DJALIA T’Challa’s research and technology takes him to a place that not even THE CREW can follow: THE DJALIA, Wakanda’s collective memory. Just getting there was hard, but finding SHURI across their nation’s past, present and future might turn out to be impossible. Even so, the strain on his Soul-Stalker abilities might tear him apart before he gets very far…
