My 2020 Comics Pull List

Ravings

For the last couple years, I have not bought many monthly comics. Various factors (moving across the country, working on my own side projects, not wanting to buy physical books but not having a good device to read digital comics on) combined to pull me away from maintaining a monthly pull list.

But now, I have a larger screen on which to read digital comics, a heck of a lot of new and continuing titles that I want to read, and a little bit of cash to burn. So we’re back, baby – 2020 is the year I return to purchasing monthly comics! And these are the seven titles I’ll be buying as the new year begins.

Development and Assertion – Re-reading Locke & Key Vol. 3: Crown of Shadows

Re-reads

For this year’s Locke and Key re-read, I decided to jump into Vol. 3, Crown of Shadows, without re-reading Vol. 1 and Vol. 2. I expected to spend some time remembering details and getting back up to speed, but was instead surprised by how effortlessly I fell back into the story of the Locke family and the horrible, magical world that surrounds them.
