Pull List for June 17th

Ahoy-hoy to all my friends and family in fandom! Below you'll find this week's comic suggestions, which is also what I'm reading. Due to new work hours and scheduling, sadly it's been over a month since I've had the chance to visit my most favorite shop, Keith's Comics.  I know, i has a sad face too. What is even more depressing is that I haven't had a chance to film our weekly comic pull videos in over a month. BIGGER SAD FACE. I'm still reading my my stories, but mainly in digital buys, (except for all the BTiLC and Escape from NY issues and choice covers). 

Okay on to the pulls. This is proably one of the heaviest weeks in comics for me in a while including a rare occurrence in which both Marvel and DC titles take my top picks.
