IMAGE COMICS Releases: Wednesday 16th September 2015

Each week, we take a look at the forthcoming IMAGE COMICS titles available in stores, giving you a comprehensive guide to your comics pull list.

As always, it’s IMAGE COMICS that has the mammoth book selection out on Wednesday – even for the first NCBD of the year. Talk about ‘starting as you mean to go on’…

Some major titles coming your way this week. While a number of the headlining books are taking a bit of a break (you won’t be seeing THE WICKED + THE DIVINE again until March and I’ve no idea when I’ll be grinning like a loon over a copy of I HATE FAIRYLAND next), you still have some big books here to be getting on with AND the first issue of a new story arc, too. Deep breath, hold on tight, here we go:

  • Image wouldn’t be Image without BITCH PLANET – the quintessential I.C. book – and Kelly Sue DeConnick and Taki Soma kick off 2016 with a flashback #7th issue, looking back at the circumstances of Meiko Maki’s backstory and what led her on the road to incarceration. When the first page is a full-blown Warning Disclaimer, you know you’re in for one hell of a ride…
  • …Rick Remender had one incredible 2015, with plaudits and accolades coming out of his arse for the books he came up with last year (LOW and TOKYO GHOST were particular highlights). BLACK SCIENCE remains his masterpiece and the ‘Godworld’ arc continues in issue #19, with Matteo Scalera and Moreno Dinisio providing sterling work in the art department…
  • …I’m going to have to plead ignorance with Rich Tommaso‘s DARK CORRIDOR, reaching issue #6 this week, but when everyone is pretty much pestering me to investigate, giving all sorts of rants and raves about this ‘unique storytelling experience’ (seriously, that’s the kind of comment I’ve been fielding), I think I might have to buckle and check this out on Wednesday…
  • …but not before I take my regular dive into the world of ELEPHANTMEN, with Richard Starkings and Axel Medellin never letting me down – issue #68 getting especially bloody and brutal…
  • Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips, backed with sumptuous colours by Elizabeth Brietweiser (in my humble opinion, the books MVP), has their noir classic THE FADE OUT – yes, of course it can be comfortably be considered a classic – come to a breathtaking end in this, the final #12th issue…
  • FOUR EYES heads into a new story arc – HEARTS OF FIRE – of this bold story, fusing stark, bold lines and a minimalist colour palette (courtesy of Max Fiumara) with a truly fantastical tale of a boy and his dragon in Depression-era America, (told by Joe Kelly)…
  • …speaking of fantastical, you don’t get more out there than Phil Hester and John McCrea‘s stunning MYTHIC. I say pick this one up and give it a whirl but you’ll be utterly lost – best to head to your local retailer of sequential printed merchandise and track down the previous issues – good news is, we’re only up to #6, here…
  • …occasional reviewer Jon ‘Goatboy’ Clarke will be thrilled: Joshua Williamson and Mike Henderson give him a belated Christmas present in the form of NAILBITER #19 – and the eponymous nut-bar has quite the story to tell…
  • …my personal (third) favourite IMAGE book at the moment reaches its #4th issue – Brian K. Vaughan and Cliff Chaing‘s PAPER GIRLS has become quite the remarkable book, truly bonkers in conception but tempered with the most human and relate-able characters. And now the thing comes to a stunning close; well, a pause at least, as issue #5 brings this first story arc to a chilling conclusion…
  • SAINTS #5 from Sean Lewis and Benjamin Mackey is a very slow burn but I’m finding that is making it a very satisfying read. And stories with subversive religious overtones always float my particular boat, anyway. I know, I know, I’magonnahell…
  • …and, last but not least, the legendary  which is STRAY BULLETS barrels on in its SUNSHINE AND ROSES arc; David Lapham presents issue #11 – and you just can never tell what bizarre occurrences are just around the bend. Even in your wildest dreams…

And there you have it. More variety than you can shake a stick at and more talent than a three-ring circus. Enjoy!
