Rogues’ Essentials

Abbott #5

  • Boom, please announce another chapter in this series. I just can’t quite let it go! – Cory
  • The story, artwork, and just about everything in this series has been phenomenal. Sad to see it end. – Michael
  • Ditto, Michael. – Anelise

Barrier #5

  • This comic is doing some really cool stuff with language and art. And there’s aliens. Read it. – Anelise
  • The artwork is so expressive and full of life that it doesn’t even need words. Having Brian K. Vaughn writing words for it is just an added bonus. – Cory
  • This short series has been nothing short of amazing. There is so much going on in it that every read of it unveils a new detail that you missed. I cannot wait to see how they end this thing. – Greg

Blackwood #1

  • Veronica Fish’s art is energetic and fun. And the premise of a Harry Potter-type story for adults is intriguing. – Cory
  • The concept of the series got my attention. The fact that Veronica Fish is the artist on the book sold me on it. – Greg
  • This might be the dumbest reason ever, but for some reason, the cover reminds me of Magus’s castle in Chrono Trigger and that’s a big reason I’m drawn to read this. – Michael

Descender #30

  • So far Descender has been an incredible book. What gets to me every time is the artwork–be it big scenes or intimate moments, all of it looks gorgeous. Only two issues left. – Christoph
  • This book is coming to an end. Sob! looking forward to how this one wraps up. – Cory

Man Of Steel #1

  • This is the first DC issue entirely written by Bendis. The preview in the Action Comics #1000 special looked intriguing, and this mini-series seems like a great place to start this journey. – Christoph
  • I cannot remember the last time that I picked up a Superman book. Bendis is one of those writers that is hit and miss for me, but, seeing as this is his first Superman/DC book, I feel like I have to check it out.- Greg

Mech Cadet Yu Volume 1 GN

  • This boy-robot series is equal amounts nostalgia and novelty. – Anelise
  • One of my favorite books on the stands right now. It’s sweet, thrilling, and emotionally poignant. – Cory

Supergirl Being Super TP

  • I’ve heard good things about this series, and I’m looking forward to finally catching up on it! – Anelise
  • This series is amazing! Tamaki’s characterization and dialogue, both intra and interpersonal, is wonderfully written. She made me a fan of Kara Danvers. – Cory

Vampironica #2

  • Vampironica is classic horror done in a fresh way. – Anelise
  • The Smallwoods have a beauty on their hands here. It’s fun, creepy, and looks gorgeous to boot. – Frank
  • First one was surprisingly good. Veronica as Blade done in a fun way. – Michael

Cory’s Pick

Kong Of Skull Island 2018 Special #1
A prequel to the movie, which I thoroughly enjoyed, about one Viking expedition after another, over decades, to try and tame the island and its beasts. I’m guessing it doesn’t go too well for them.






Frank’s Picks

Hillbilly #10
I’m a new convert to this book…witches, rednecks, monsters, gore.. it was an easy sell!

Vs #4
This might be the most interesting, best-looking book on the stands right now. Seriously, everyone should be talking about this book.





Greg’s Pick

Royal City #11
New arc on this beautiful series from Lemire. Jump on if you have not been reading this.







Josh’s Picks

Harbinger Wars 2 #1
Valiant events are always a blast. This gives off a Captain America Civil War vibe but darker. Stakes are high so expect superhero smashing.

Pestilence: A Story Of Satan #1
The sequel to Knights vs Zombies. Features conspiracies, the church, and the Black Death plague.

Quantum And Woody #6
Quantum and Woody’s bracelets, which give them their powers and keep them from disintegrating, aren’t working thanks to what’s happening in Harbinger Wars 2. Looking forward to seeing how they get out of this mess.


Michael’s Picks

Lucas Stand Inner Demons #4
Time-traveling demon slayer from the guy behind Sons of Anarchy is just too hard to pass up.

We Are Danger #1
Nationwide Battle of the Bands contest…sign me up.





Graphic Novels

The Archies Volume 1 TP
Battle-of-the-bands fun with some of my favorite characters, what’s not to love? – Anelise

Jupiter Jet Volume 1 TP
Jupiter Jet is a lot of fun, great for the young and young at heart.  – Stacy

Lone Ranger And Tonto Prose Frontier Justice Novel SC
I’m a sucker for a prose anthology featuring licensed characters, and this one’s dedicated to the Lone Ranger and Tonto. HI-HO SILVER! – Stacy

Punisher War Machine Volume 1 TP
Frank Castle gets his hands on the War Machine armor. Cancel Christmas. – Stacy

Solo A Star Wars Story The Official Guide HC
I’ve seen the movie, and I definitely want to learn more about the world of Solo. This looks like a great place to start! – Stacy

Void Trip TP
Bleak, beautiful, perfect science fiction. – Anelise

Where We Live Las Vegas Shooting Benefit Anthology TP
A collection of stories by a group of volunteer creators, whose sales go toward helping the families of the victims of the Las Vegas shooting, count me in. – Stacy

That’s all for this week! Thanks for checking out the Rogues Portal Pull List! We’ll be back next week with a brand new list for you to peruse. Same Bat-Time. Same Bat-Channel!

Josh Rose
Basically a hobbit, Josh is always enjoying food and drink, and going on unexpected adventures. Beware if you see him without a cup of coffee: caffeination deprivation makes this boy go loco.
