It’s not always easy deciding what to get, let alone what you should add to your pull boxes, so we’ve put together the Rogues Portal Pull List to show you the best comics that you might have missed! Let’s see what’s new for June 13th. Here’s what we’re getting and what you should check out today! 

Rogues’ Essentials

By Night #1

  • Monsters, magic, and adventure? Count me in. – Anelise
  • The creator of Giant Days wrote this. ‘Nuff said! – Cory
  • The creative team behind this venture has me super excited, and the premise is hilarious! Who hasn’t considered themselves an “amateur urban explorer” and gotten up to a bit of mischief? Throw in magic, monsters, and the most dangerous threat of all: a former best friend, and I’m sold. – Kylee

Coda #2

  • The first issue really set the stage well for the remainder of the series. Plus, I need more pentacorn in my life! – Cory
  • The first issue was something of a slow burn for me, but once I was hooked I was hooked! I can’t wait to see what Hum does with that horrifying cliffhanger from the first issue. – Kylee

Dead Hand #3

  • Cold War spy story with some crazy twists already has me on the edge of my seat so far. – Greg
  • This has been surprisingly suspenseful and not your average Iron Curtain spy story. The revelation in the last issue shows just how precarious the situation is.

Eternity Girl #4

  • A very open and raw depiction of living with depression…yes, even superheroes have negative emotions. – Michael
  • Ditto, Michael. – Anelise

Mech Cadet Yu #9

  • This boy-robot adventure is super fun. – Anelise
  • The beginning of the final arc. Noooooo!!! – Cory

Nancy Drew #1

  • Kelly Thompson gets a free pass. I’ll check out every new comic she writes. – Cory
  • An all female creative team on one of the best teen detective series ever, complete with feminist and queer vibes. – Josh

Robocop Citizens Arrest #3

  • Last issue the retirement programming came off. So what will happen now that Robocop is back to his old self? – Greg
  • I’m guessing there will be. . .trouble. – Stacy

Weatherman #1

  • I’m a sucker for anything set in space. The premise and the bombastic cover have me itching to get my hands on this one. – Kylee
  • Lots of early praise for this one has me pretty hyped. – Michael

Cory’s Pick

Copperhead #19
The first issue of the final arc. Sob!







Greg’s Picks

Plastic Man #1
Gail Simone has the uncanny ability to write quirky characters and make them super interesting. Cannot wait to see her take on Plastic Man.

Thor #1
Jason Aaron ushers in the return of Odinson but without the Hammer. So how has the former Thor changed since last he held the mantle of Thor? Aaron is sure to tell an epic tale.




Josh’s Picks

Bloodshot Salvation #10
Bloodshot ends up in the year 4001 where he meets what’s left of the nanites that used to be Bloodshot. Lemire is free to take all of my lunch money.

Hawkman #1
Venditti is a great writer with works like X-O Manowar and Green Lantern. Looking forward to seeing what he does with Hawkman.




Michael’s Picks

Man Of Steel #3
Bendis is making me a Superman fan. Hard to do.

Venom #2
First one was an incredible reintroduction to Eddie Brock as Venom. I’m definitely along for this ride.





Graphic Novels

Atomic Robo And The Spectre Of Tomorrow TP
If you haven’t read Atomic Robo, you’re missing out on some of the most entertaining, funny, and outright great comics of recent years. – Stacy

DC Young Animal Milk Wars TP
Milk Wars is over the top crazy comics insanity that needs to be read to be believed. Young Animal has been wonderful, and this crossover with the mainstream DCU is as quirky and fun as you’d want it to be. Deliciously subversive. – Stacy

Elseworlds Batman Volume 3 TP
Who doesn’t love an imaginary story? The fun of Elseworlds is seeing familiar characters in worlds that could have been, and worlds that should never be. This collection looks like it’ll be a lot of fun. – Stacy

Grass Kings Volume 2 HC
Kindt is one of my favourite writers, and I love the watercolour art in this. The first volume was so good, and now the rulers of the Grass Kingdom are hunting for a serial killer. – Josh

Greatest Adventure HC
Edgar Rice Burroughs’ characters are all together in one adventure. Every. Single. One. If you’re a fan of Tarzan or any other ERB property, you need this in your collection. – Josh

Hellboy The Complete Short Stories Volume 1 TP
Hellboy is one of the greatest comics creations of the past decade, and this volume gives you a chance to get acquainted with the World’s Greatest Paranormal Investigator and his world in fun, done-in-one short pieces by the master Mike Mignola himself. – Stacy

It Will All Hurt TP
I’m a huge fan of The Wrenchies, so I’m excited to see what this talented creator delivers next! – Anelise

Quick And Easy Guide To They Them Pronouns GN
A fast, but extremely important read for ensuring that you’re treating people with the respect that they deserve. I also appreciate that the creative team is  coming from two different places when it comes to pronoun usage and will hopefully bring the topic to a level where everyone can understand it. – Kylee

Slots Volume 1 TP
This down-on-his-luck retired boxer story was a great read. Here is your chance to read it all in one place. Check it out. – Greg

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.
