New Comic Book Day September 8, 2021: My Pull List And Pick Of The Week

This is usually the time of year where it’s pretty much official. Summer is over, fall is upon us, and we’ve just got to deal with it. For kids, that means going back to school. For adults, it means fewer vacations and fewer days in which you can get away with wearing flip flops to the grocery store.

Honestly, I feel worse for the kids, especially for a year like this. This has to be a bittersweet time of year.

When I was a kid, comics helped me with the transition. Given how miserable I was throughout school, I really needed that. Hell, I needed all the help I could get. I was just that messed up. Now, as an adult, comics during this time of year feel like a reprieve. They help me step back from a complicated adult world and just be.

I think we all need that at some point in our lives, especially after the past couple years. Being an adult and dealing with the adult world can be hard, frustrating, and stressful. I’ve certainly had my share of days where I’ve dealt with frustrating adults. They only make me appreciate comics and New Comic Book Day even more. I hope they can offer a similar reprieve to many others, regardless of age.

To help, here’s my pull list and pick of the week. Enjoy!

New Comic Book Day September 30, 2020: My Pull List And Pick Of The Week

I approach every New Comic Book Day the same way Forest Gump approaches a box of chocolates. You may never know what you’re gonna get with a box of chocolates, but you usually have a partial idea with comics. However, that does leave some room for novelty and exploration.

For as long as I’ve been into comics, I’ve had a simple rule. I have books that I’m subscribed to. I’ll always buy them the day they come out. They’re usually just standard X-Men, Spider-Man, Superman, Wonder Woman, and Avengers titles. These are like big budget blockbuster movies. You know what you’re getting with them and it’s usually awesome.

At the same time, I always try to leave some room for new, different, or otherwise unknown titles. That’s how I discover underrated gems or new characters that I become fond of. Even when my comics budget is tight, I try to leave enough money for just one of those books.

It’s because of this rule that I found Ms. Marvel.

It’s because of this rule that I rediscovered the Power Rangers comics.

If you’re into comics on any level, I highly recommend you adopt this rule. Your budget may vary. You can still work with that. You may have to be patient and wait for some other books to come out in trades, but use every week as an opportunity to find a new flavor of chocolate.

You’ll be amazed at some of the gems you find. You may find yourself becoming a fan of something you don’t expect. It’s a beautiful thing and this is as good a week as any to start. Here’s my pull list and pick to help get you started. Enjoy!
