icon - image comics logoIMAGE 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.

Lots and lots and LOTS of books. Hold on to your wallets, kids…

This is another last minute one, I’m afraid – no direct update from Image Comics meant a random look-in on their Previews server, a lot of piddling around getting details from the website and all sorts of surreptitious screen-capping which I’ll probably get a slap on the wrist for. But I want to bring you these titles, right?

And what a selection we have for you this week –  another sumptuous instalment of noir epic THE FADE OUT, courtesy of Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips; the first issue of new series TOKYO GHOST; personal favourite RAT QUEENS thunders along nicely with Issue #12 (although it’s starting to hold up on the fun and attitude and heading a little towards Hollyoaks territory), and; those cheeky blighters Matt Fraction and Chip Zdarsky touch up all the right places in another thrilling and titillating issue of SEX CRIMINALS.

Why, you could call it a smorgasbord of comic talent this week. Just wish I could’ve brought it to you sooner, s’all.
