The Pull: A Look at the Comics Dropping the Week of August 9th

Comic of the Week: Kaya #10

Wes Craig’s Kaya has quietly become one of the, if not the, best and most consistent titles in Image’s stable of books. We knew it’d look good. What we didn’t know was how potent and effective the story and characters would be. Each aspect is completely in sync in this book, as Craig’s handling all roles and clearly has a plan for this title.
