I’m thinking this is going to be the last time I do a Pull List post. They take a surprising amount of effort, and the number of views they get is incredibly small, even relative to how little traffic this site gets overall.

So, unless there’s some huge uptick in traffic and a bunch of people coming out and saying they want this feature to continue, this will be the last Pull List.

I’ll probably keep doing Mail Call posts, as those are easier and actually do get some traffic sometimes.

That said, I do need to stop being lazy and write up more Unbagging posts.

But for now, enjoy one last look at the Pull List.

Barbarella: The Center Cannot Hold


Derrick Chew Regular

Release: Aug 09, 2023

At last, the secrets of the Unnamable are revealed! Having travelled beyond our universe to reach the home of the Unnamable, Barbarella and her stalwart companions may have the answers they’ve been seeking, but they’re very, very far from home, and very, very vulnerable. Can a war between universes be averted? Will the Architects sacrifice our universe in the name of victory? Can we possibly fit in all the answers we’re promising here? One thing’s for sure, our universe will never be the same again. Learn more in this final chapter!

Jon Says:

I buy these Barbarella books out of habit every time a new series comes out. I probably shouldn’t. I have enjoyed the art in this, at least. Not that the rest of it is bad, it’s just that nothing that has come since has good as that initial series I started with that was written by Mike Carey.

Danger Street


Jorge Fornés Regular

Release: Aug 08, 2023

The secret origin of the Green Team and Outsiders revealed! Meanwhile, the Commodore has revenge on the brain as he sends his knight, a.k.a. Assassin, to eliminate Manhunter. Do the good guys even stand a chance? With the real superheroes out of commission, the Dingbats may be the universe’s only hope!

Jon Says:

It’s another issue of Danger Street. You know how I feel about it. (Well, you probably don’t, as you’re probably not reading this.)

House of Slaughter


Javier Rodriguez Regular

Release: Aug 09, 2023

There is nothing the ruthless White Masks won’t do to eliminate a nest of monsters. Nothing is apparently unthinkable or off-limits, as a special and infamous member of their ranks is dispatched to finish the job in Erie, Pennsylvania. Bait, the fan-favorite White Mask (a young boy with amputated arms and a tendency to survive suicidal odds), is dispatched with a mission more malicious than imaginable at hand. Something (or someone) else is killing the children now, and however unexpected… the children will find the one that hunts them viciously familiar…

Jon Says:

I was going to drop this and start tradewating on it, but then I didn’t. True story.

Dan Mora Regular

Multiversity: Harley Screws Up The DCU


Amanda Conner Regular

Release: Aug 08, 2023

She’s traversed time and space, fixing everything she messed up, but one (pretty dang big) question remains: Just who the heck gave Harley Quinn a time machine in the first place? The answer needs to be seen to be believed! Harley’s time-hopping, universe-screw-upping adventure comes to a close in this Starro-studded finale!


WriterFrank Tieri
ArtistLogan Faerber
Cover ArtistAmanda Conner

Jon Says:

It’s over. It had fun Amanda Conner Covers and it occasionally made me chuckle. Ultimately, I think I just enjoy Harley more outside of comics than in.

Spirit World, Vol. 2


Haining Regular

Release: Aug 08, 2023

FEATURING CONSTANTINE! Cass Cain, Batgirl, has died before, and it seems the spirits of the Spirit World met her when she passed through before being revived by the Lazarus Pit…but then how come she doesn’t remember being there? Then, as Constantine’s memories start to fade after being in the Spirit World for too long, he begins to turn on Xanthe, who needs to find a way back to the land of living or Constantine will be a permanent resident of the land of the dead…either way, time’s running out!


WriterAlyssa Wong
Cover ArtistHaining

Jon Says:

Of the “We Are Legends” books, this one seems to be the most tied to the main DCU, which I suppose, make sense, given that it’s a legacy title. I do have to admit that I have trouble remembering what’s going on with each new issue, but that’s probably just my aging brain.

Superman, Vol. 6 Annual


Mahmud Asrar Regular

Release: Aug 08, 2023

METROPOLIS’S SECRETS ARE REVEALED! Art by Mahmud Asrar, Max Raynor, Jack Herbert, and Caitlin Yarsky Lois Lane is now editor-in-chief of the Daily Planet, but at heart she’ll always be an investigative reporter. And lately Metropolis has had a whole new set of secrets she must uncover. Even if it means investigating her own husband…Superman! Featuring Livewire, Parasite, and Mercy, this special issue is your next big puzzle piece leading to a massive Superman crossover in 2024! Don’t miss out!


WriterJoshua Williamson

Cover ArtistMahmud Asrar
Editor in ChiefMarie Javins

Jon Says:

Annuals just aren’t as exciting as they were when I was a kid. It’s been that way for a while, going back to the ’90s. Even when they’re actually part of an event, they don’t really feel like an event themselves. It doesn’t help that they don’t come out on any kind of consistent schedule. Most of the time, they don’t even come out annually. But hey, at least this one is focusing on Lois.

World’s Finest: Teen Titans


Evan Doc Shaner Variant

Release: Aug 08, 2023

DONNA TROY JOINS THE TEAM! Welcome to Metropolis, Wonder Girl! Hoping to reconnect with her human roots, Donna Troy leaves Themyscira for the City of Tomorrow. There she meets Mal Duncan, a young man with the makings of a true hero. And just in time, too–the Titans will need all the help they can get as they investigate a cry for help that leads them to a haunted house that is not what it seems!

First issue didn’t wow me. We’ll see how this one does. I do like Lupacchino’s art.
