The Weekly Comet – September 11, 2018

The Weekly Comet

Hey Nation,

Welcome to Pulp Nation’s The Weekly Comet for the week of September 11, 2018.

What’s Good

Age of Bronze

Andie is reading through the full-colour version Eric Shanower’s Age of Bronze and is absolutely loving it.

As the daughter of a historian, she is amazed at the historical and archaeological accuracy. Put it this way, she would consider using Age of Bronze as a teaching tool.

It’s just that good. She asked me, “Are all comics like this?”

“No,” I said, “some are even better!”

Keep an eye out for her review coming soon!



Finding unexpected gems is the best thing about reading comics.

I try and not to pay too much attention to hype surrounding new and upcoming comics. I don’t want to buy into the hype only to be disappointed.

MCMLXXV #1 is one such book I didn’t realize was coming down the pipe. It’s a great read that came unexpectedly and you’ve got to read it.

It’s a refreshing and unique tale about a hero that people, actual people can relate to.

Well, except for the enchanted tire iron, I suppose.

What’s Exciting

Green Monk: Blood of the Martyrs

Yes, I mentioned this last week, and I’ll probably mention it next week and the week after that—its release week, but this book is a can’t miss.

Green Monk: Blood of the Martyrs is an amazing book. I don’t think I’m overstating it when I saw this could be one of the best books of the year!

Well done, Brandon Dayton.

Farmhand #3

Farmhand by Rob Guillory is another fantastic series and issue #3 hits store shelves tomorrow!

If you haven’t been following the tale of the Jenkins family, you should do yourself a favour and read this book!

Family intrigue, espionage (government and corporate), human limb gardens, and scalp bushes; it’s got everything your creepy little heart desires!

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