October Pulls! Batman! Dragon Ball! Nnewts!


What’s this? It’s half way through the month and we’re only now just getting around to posting this month’s pulls? Well don’t worry. You only really need to read Dragon Ball by November 1 now that we air our episodes throughout the month. You’ve got time. Relax.

Here is what we are reading this month! You can choose to read any or all of these books to be a part of this podcast. Just head to your local library, book store, comic shop, Comixology, or find a friend with a copy that you can borrow, and start reading! Once you’ve finished reading, send us an email with your thoughts! Did you like the book? Why? What are your thoughts on the writing? The art? The characters? The premise? We’ll read one or two emails for each book on the Podcast; one of those emails could be yours! We will always lean toward the more thought-provoking emails that will allow us to carry on the conversation. These episodes will be released on November 1st, 10th and 20th.
