Spiders, Bats and… Henches? July Pulls!


We are a little late putting this up, but that is because there is a little change to the books that we announced in the previous episode of The Pullbox Podcast! Below is the updated list of 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. The episode will be released on August 1.
