The Pull List 8 | Lois Lane in a Refrigerator & The Second Coming


About This Episode

Lois Lane in a metaphorical refrigerator is the main topic of discussion this week as Chris and Hector discuss the latest Tom King controversy. WalMart’s exclusive Giant comic run with DC dropped Superman Giant #7 which features 12 pages of Lois being brutally murdered in Superman’s head as he worries about her from afar.

The DC news continues with the Vertigo label about to release Mark Russell’s first issue of Second Coming where Jesus Christ returns to earth and rooms with another super-hero called the Sun King.
