We’re back with this too! Comics for Your Pull Box lives! Bleeding Cool is here to sift through the release list and give you some books worth checking out. In addition, here’s a link to ComicList, the website I primarily use for this article, for you to look at the full catalog. Let’s get started.

The Ritter family is coming together to save Heather and Clark in the Red Realm, and we see what has been happening in the Red Realm in their time there. Babyteeth is still among AfterShock’s best, and Donny Cates and Garry Brown have been putting him some great work here.

Batwoman #18

It’s the end of the series, and I didn’t know that until researching this list. I have some emotions to process…

Anyway, Clock King has come to Gotham with a drug that can tell the immediate future. Batwoman could use this in the war against crime, but it would require a great cost. Plus, Renee Montoya is in the line of fire, and Kate won’t let anything happen to her. How will this run of Batwoman end?

Jack is trying to finish a job, but every mad decision he has ever made is coming to a head at once. His personal life isn’t going so well either. This is the end of Analog‘s first arc, and this Gerry Duggan and David O’Sullivan venture has been great so far. Hopefully it can stick its first landing.

Crowded #1 cover by Ro Stein and Ted Brandt

The Bowl’s secrets are revealed, and Xoo is still in deep trouble. Flavor is a book that I didn’t expect to love as much as I do. This one is worth checking out.

The first Skyward comes to the end of its first arc, and Willa goes after Barrow, hoping to stop him and maybe learn the truth behind G-Day.
