Welcome to Pulp Nation’s The Weekly Comet for the week of September 25, 2018.
I’ve got to start by saying I don’t have enough money for all the comics I’m interested in this week. Of course, I could say that every week, but this week’s selections are incredibly hard to choose from.
I guess I have to decide which kids and animals have to forgo a meal this week.
The Wicked + The Divine 1373 (one-shot)
I had a chance to read and review the final one-shot of The Wicked + The Divine historical series and I’m glad I did!
Kieron Gillen’s dark tale along with art from Ryan Kelly, colors from Matthew Wilson, and letters from Clayton Cowles combine perfectly to tell the tale of the Recurrence that takes place after the Black Death ravaged Europe.
“THE TRANSUBSTANTIATION OF LUCIFER”
The final THE WICKED + THE DIVINE historical special plunges into the shadow of life after the Black Death. KIERON GILLEN gets back together with THREE collaborator RYAN KELLY to tell the story of penitent nun Lucifer hearing the confession of penitent murderer Ananke. Yes, everyone will be sorry.
I can’t wait to get my hands on a hard-copy!

Green Monk: Blood of The Martyrs
Finally, it’s here!
Green Monk: Blood of the Martyrs from Image Comics is out this week and it’s a can’t miss book Nation!
Brandon Dayton does double duty as writer and artist and doesn’t miss a beat. I’ve said it multiple times but it bears repeating: Green Monk: Blood of the Martyrs is one of the books of the year.
In stores tomorrow!

Star Trek vs. Transformers #1 (of 4)
This is amazing. Thank you IDW Publishing for combining two of my favourite franchises: Transformers and Star Trek.
More importantly, Star Trek vs. Transformers is so retro that it features the characters of the original Transformers cartoon and Star Trek: The Animated Series.
Star Trek vs. Transformers #1 is written by John Barber and Mike Johnson with art and colors from Philip Murphy and Priscilla Tramontano respectively. Of course, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention Christa Miesner is the letterer of record as well.
This will bring back many fond Saturday morning memories.
Strangers Things #1
If you’re a Stranger Things fan who wanted to know how Will Byers survived the Upside Down, your wait is over!
Dark Horse Comics is publishing a Stranger Things miniseries that will fill in the gap left by season 1 of the immensely popular series.
Stranger Things #1 is written by Jody Houser. The pencils and ink come from Stefano Martino and Keith Champagne respectively with colors from Lauren Affe. Nate Piekos handles the lettering work.
With season 3 coming up in Summer 2019, I look forward to anything Stranger Things related!
Nation, what’s good? What exciting? Tell us!
