The world is changing every day. The news is getting more and more stressful in the process. Coping with it might as well be superpower at this point, which gives even more value to the things that give us joy. A lot of things give me joy in life, but a fresh stack of comics on New Comic Book Day is among the most potent.
The comic book industry is still not fully recovered from the impact of the pandemic. The industry is already changing rapidly, as a result. I have no idea where those changes will lead. I also have no idea what the industry will look like a year from now. There’s already a concerted effort to be more “normal” next month. All we can do is focus on the scheduled releases before us.
The world will always be hectic, to some extent. I’m old enough to remember when people spent weeks on end, dreading how the world was going to collapse due to Y2K. We got through that. We got through plenty of more crap after that. My love of comics helped me get through it. I hope comics have a similar effect to those who love them as much as I do.
To that end, I offer my pull list and pick for the week. We’re almost back at full strength, my fellow comic fans. Just hang in there and enjoy another New Comic Book Day in this ever-evolving shit storm that we call life.
