Your pull list is lacking.  You can trust us…

Thor: The Mighty Avenger – Double Rainbow

By Roger Langridge, Chris Samnee, & Matthew Wilson

There are those among your number who have seen fit to dismiss our recommendations for the sublime Thor: The Mighty Avenger, and you wish to make amends, not only to us, but to your very soul.  Perhaps you weren't aware that redemption was so attainable, but Marvel has gone and made it easy.  They've reprinted the first 2 issues with this oddly titled collection, all for the price of just one issue.  See what the fuss is about, and if you don't walk away with a smile, that's too bad, because it's very unlikely you'll get your money back. Sorry, that's just the way it is.

I Kill Giants #1

By Joe Kelly & J.M. Ken Nimura

How better than to take a chance with a light week then by only spending a dollar on the first issue of one of the best books of the past few years?  Thanks to Image's Firsts program, you can give I Kill Giants a shot.  This emotional and evocative story from Joe Kelly and J.M. Ken Nimura captured all of our hearts as meet a little girl who deals with lives problems just like any of us would like to, by killing giants.  This mini-series was fantastic and if you were curious about it, then drop a buck and give this a shot!

Conor says try:

G.I. Joe: Origins #19

By Larry Hama, Joe Benitez, Victor Llamas & J. Brown



  1. I’m very excited about G.I. Joe Origins this week.  The original silent issue is an all time favorite of mine.  I expect this one to be special.

  2. Is Conor "silent" because it’s a silent issue of GI Joe Origins?  

  3. Conor makes a good point.

  4. Really looking forward to G.I. Joe this week.

    Thor: Double Rainbow – WHAT DOES IT MEAN?!?!?

  5. I had nothing but high praise to give to I Kill Giants when I read it.  It’s one of those books I can definitely recommend to newcomers that may be intimidated by the superhero genre.  And we always love newcomers coming to frolic with us nerds, right? 🙂

  6. I Kill Giants is a great book. Definetly worth the buck to give it a try. I’m going to check out the Thor. I’m trying to work on my pull-list, dropping books I just don’t care about anymore, and picking up interesting, and diverse books.

  7. Look up double rainbow on youtube. I am guessing the title is a reference to this internet meme.

  8. I’ve been wanting to read I kill giants and for a buck, you can’t beat that.

  9. I’m going to wait until they collect the first 3 issues of Thor: The Mighty Avenger and it turns into a triple rainbow. Oh my god, that’s going to be so beautiful…

  10. Checked out the IDW app today and noticed they are selling their main GI Joe issues (not the spin-offs) for $0.99 an issue… not as good as the spin-offs but a good deal none the less…

  11. Definitly wanna give Thor a try, but I dont think my shops getting this double issue. But either way I’m getting the first two issues this week.

  12. Will be picking up Thor: The Mighty Avenger this week. Thanks for the info on the double issue.
