What’s on Your Pull List? May 6, 2015

Ali Colluccio enjoys comics, cocktails, and curling. She lives in Brooklyn with her adorably blind kitten, Minerva, and tweets with reckless abandon at @WonderAli.

Every week, a different Panelteer will give you a rundown of the comics they’re most looking forward to for the week. Floppies, trades, and omniboo are all fair game here. This week, Ali tells us whats on her pull list.

The weather here in New York City has been absolutely gorgeous these last couple days. And I’ve been walking around with a spring in my step and a song in my heart. So in true Broadway fashion, I humbly submit What’s on Your Pull List: The Musical…

Let’s hear it for the comics

Oh let’s give the comics a hand
Let’s hear it for my floppies
You know you gotta understand
Oh maybe they’re no graphic novel
But they’re my lovin’ one-shot issues
Oh, whoa, whoa, whoa
Let’s hear it for the comics!

squirrelgirl_5The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #5 by Ryan North, Erica Henderson, and Rico Renzi (Marvel)
She’s a squirrel dammit. It’s a miracle!
She’s a squirrel dammit
‘Cause females are strong as hell!

(I said, “Tippy, are you for real?!”)

rocketgirl_6Rocket Girl #6 by Brandon Montclare and Amy Reeder (Image)
And I think it’s gonna be a long, long time
Till the time cops bring me round again to find
I’m not the girl they think I am in 2014
Oh no, no, no, I’m a Rocket Girl
Rocket Girl!
Burning out her jet-pack in 1986 alone

spidergwen_4Spider-Gwen #4 by Jason Latour, Robbi Rodriguez, and Rico Renzi (Marvel)

Spider-Gwen, Spider-Gwen
Does whatever a spider can
Spins a web, any size,
Catches thieves just like flies
Look Out!
Here comes the Spider-Gwen!

spiderwoman_7Spider-Woman #7 by Dennis Hopeless, Javier Rodriguez, Alvaro Lopez, and Muntsa Vicente (Marvel) 
Is she strong?
Listen bud,
She’s got genetically engineered blood
Can she swing from a thread
Take a look overhead
Hey, there!
There goes the Spider-Woman

wicdiv_10The Wicked + The Divine #10 by Kieron Gillen, Jamie McKelvie, Matt Wilson, and Clayton Cowles (Image)
You’re the train that crashed my heart
You’re the glitter in the dark
Ooh Laura, you’re more than a superstar
And in this horror show
I’ve got to tell you so
Ooh Laura, you’re more than a superstar

(I didn’t even need to change the lyrics on this one!)

afterlife_8Afterlife with Archie #8 by Roberto Aguirre Sacasa, Francesco Francavilla, and Jack Morelli (Archie)
Oh, sugar
Oh, zombie, zombie
You are my undead girl
And you got me wanting you
Oh, zombie
Oh, sugar, sugar
You are my undead girl
And you got me wanting you

nevergohome_2We Can Never Go Home #2 by Matthew Rosenberg, Patrick Kindlon, Josh Hood, and Amanda Scurti (Black Mask)
We can never ever ever go back home
We can never ever ever go back home
You go talk to your friends, talk to my friends, talk to me
But we can never ever ever go back home
