Whether they’re from major publishers or small presses, whether they’re new issues of ongoing series, original graphic novels, or collected editions of older material, if something has the team excited about comics, it’s featured in "The Weekly Pull."

This week marks several exciting releases. "X-Men: From the Ashes" begins with X-Men #1, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles celebrate their 40th anniversary, and Outsiders reaches its ninth issue.

Let’s take a deeper look into some of these highly anticipated releases:

The Domain #1

Chip Zdarsky’s "Public Domain" has become a favorite for fans of superhero comics for its self-aware and comedic examination of the industry that birthed numerous cultural icons. Expanding this week, this favorite continues with a new five-issue miniseries, "The Domain," featuring new artistic collaborator Rachael Stott. The series promises to engage readers with modern superhero concepts and the influence of changing social norms on this genre. Zdarsky’s own experience challenging social justice topics promises to offer a unique lens on how mainstream superhero comics are shaped today, potentially introducing three new heroes worth following.

The Hunger and the Dusk: Book Two #1

Sword-and-sorcery comics have been thriving, and G. Willow Wilson and Chris Wildgoose’s "The Hunger and the Dusk" from IDW is a standout. Set in a world where humans and orcs must unite against a mysterious common enemy, the story continues this week with new lessons and resolves from these endearing heroes. With its vibrant fantasy storytelling, this series is not to be missed.

Justice League vs. Godzilla vs. Kong

A concept so unabashedly ambitious and delightful could only be embodied in modern comics. The seven-issue miniseries, now collected, pits the Justice League against Legendary’s monsters Godzilla and Kong. Filled with epic fight scenes and charmingly ridiculous moments, this collection promises a thrilling read that deserves a place on any comic lover’s shelf.

Kill All Immortal #1

Dark Horse Comics continues its streak of must-read series with "Kill All Immortal" #1. Written by Zack Kaplan with art by Fico Ossio, this new series blends elements of "Succession" and "John Wick," following the immortal family of Erik the Red into the 21st century. Kaplan’s high-concept fiction and Ossio’s dynamic art promise a series filled with fast-paced action and insightful societal critiques, making it a must-read release this week.

Outsiders #9

As DC’s current "Outsiders" run approaches its final arc, this week’s issue promises to bring the series’ compelling and bizarre storyline to new heights.
