ROM #2 – The Review

ROM #2 – The Review

So I’ve been slacking lately when it comes to reporting on comics..and it’s not because I haven’t been reading…heck, if anything I’ve been reading too much!   But it’s hard to find time to really do more than just rattle off a bunch of titles, so I’ve been lazy on my weekly pull list posts.    But there was no way I was going to let a new issue of ROM come out without sparing a few words.  Consider this…

Pull List – 8-10-16

Hey hey, only one day late! Man, my comic book stack keeps getting bigger every week it feels like, lots of new stuff coming out, along with a stream of Rebirth #1’s that just don’t seem to ever quit.

Pull List – 7-20-16

So it’s the week of SDCC, where news and wonders galore will be coming to light in the upcoming days.    Back on the home front, it’s new comic book day! Actually going to be honest, nothing really jumped out of the stacks for me this week.  ROM was delayed until next week, so that kind of curbed my enthusiasm.   That said, there were lots of solid books that came out, so let’s touch on some of the highlights….

Shiny Baubles: Marvel Tsum Tsum

So I saw these new Marvel Tsum Tsum toys today.  I knew they were coming, along with tsum tsum variant covers and all that, but I had no interest in them until I found out there was a Ghost Rider tsum tsum.  Then I had to go and pick up a few packs..for my kid, of course….
