Nightwing #91 by Creators
DTrying to save a city that’s even more beyond saving than Gotham is no small task, and even someone like Nightwing needs a day off to relax with his best friend and to recharge—but when your best friend is Wally West, a.k.a. the Flash, a “recharge” might not end up being so relaxing!

Pull List for April 20, 2022: Graphic Novels
Boys of the Dead by Douji Tomita
A truck pulls into a sleepy roadside diner. Within, a pair of young men argue over something before stepping into the restaurant for some grub and some assistance. Apparently their car is having engine trouble and they need a new car battery. The cook offers his used battery and hands one of them the keys to his car before he starts preparing a pair of chili dogs. While he is over the grill, he is told a tale of chaos, violence and disorder perpetuated by undying people…. A collection of six zombie-themed boys love short stories set in America.
Cloud Town by Daniel McCloskey
Dan McCloskey’s debut graphic novel, best friends Pen and Olive live in Cloud Town, an impoverished community on Floating Island, a mysterious landmass that drifts above the earth and happens to sit dangerously close to the Rip-a tear in the fabric of the universe. While Pen is brash and brave, Olive is quiet, kind, and also fearful of bullies at school. That is, at least until the day they are nearly squashed by a Care Corp Storm Catcher, a giant android built to protect Cloud Town and the rest of Floating Island from Hurricanes, monsters that travel across the Rip. It isn’t the event itself that changes the girls’ relationship. It isn’t the fear of death that drives them apart, or the questionable decision-making that leads Pen to drag Olive into the cab of the crashed robot. It’s the fact that Olive can move the 90-foot-tall machine and Pen can’t. Care Corp recruits Olive to train as a pilot, so that she can protect Floating Island when the next attack comes. It’s a role reversal, for which neither of the girls are prepared.
