What’s Good

World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth

Battle for Azeroth

Yes, it took me four plus hours to finally be able to login but when I did, it was magical!

Blizzard’s attempt at a worldwide launch didn’t exactly go off without a hitch. To be sure, Legion—the previous expansion—launched with few hiccups other than the latency caused by millions trying to play at the same time. Gamers hoping for more of the same were disappointed, however the expansion itself was worth the wait.

The story line is great, some hardcore PVPers are incensed because it’s not as easy to gank which brings a smile to my heart, and finally I’m not hopelessly behind.

Grab a friend and bring them to Azeroth!

Days of Hate #7

Days of Hate

After a month off, Days of Hate returns with issue #7 (of 12).

Even this far into a series, you won’t find any spoilers here other than it’s phenomenal! A dark story for sure by Aleŝ Kot but an important one to read.

With amazing artwork by artist Danijel Zezelj and colors by Jordie Bellaire.

You had a month to catch up! Did you?

What’s Exciting

Cold Spots #1 (of 5)

Cold Spots, Cullen Bunn

Looking through the weekly previews Image Comics sends to Pulp Nation this week, Cold Spots #1 jumped out at me.

I’m not sure what it is but lately, I’ve been devouring comics with exceptionally creepy stories and art (maybe after all those years reading Archie, I needed to expand my horizons).

Cold Spots written by Cullen Bunn (Bone Parish) is a perfect example of the books I’m into right now. With fascinating art by Mark Torres and excellent letters by Simon Bowland.

From Image:

10 years ago, Dan Kerr turned his back on his wife and unborn daughter. Now, both mother and child have gone missing, and Dan must face cosmic terrors to find them again. He soon finds that ghosts stir when his estranged daughter is near. And as the dead grow restless, the cold deepens.

Pick it up and tell us what you think!

Image Comics

You’ve probably noticed that The Weekly Comet is Image Comics-heavy. There’s a couple reasons for that.

First, Image Comics sends Pulp Nation weekly previews of their books, and at present are the only publisher that do (not for lack of trying, of course). So I’d like to give a shout out to Image Comics for working with us.

Secondly—and most important—Image Comics consistently puts out amazing titles. Honestly, they deserve a bigger share of the comic market.

I guess it goes without saying, but all my favourite books are Image books.

What’s Surprising

That it Took Me This Long to Watch Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones

I’m a few years behind on the Game of Thrones (GOT) phenomenon. Nearly everyone I know has watched it and loves it.

Not sure why I didn’t start watching it until a couple months ago. It’s not like it didn’t sound fascinating.

Well, as of today I’m caught up. I’m looking forward to the final season in 2019 and I can finally read all the wikis that abound on the internet.

I’m surprised that not one person told me any spoilers. Seriously, not a single one.

My GOT friends are a serious bunch I guess!

Nation, what’s good? What has you excited? Tell us!
