SWEET AS: The Best From IDW Publishing's September 2013 Solicitations

When we Kiwis find something we like, we say it's "Sweet as". From The Powerpuff Girls to Danger Girl, when I'm looking at the best and new releases from IDW Publishing for September 2013, these comics here make the 'Sweet As' grade:

 COVER OF THE MONTH:  GREG STAPLES

Normally Judge Dredd says 'I am the law!' but here he looks like he's saying 'Say "Narrp, narrp" one more time and this truncheon is going up your..." well yeah you get the point.

IDW says: The Martian mayhem overtakes Mega-City One! During the annual meeting of the Mega-City Mafia, a new boss makes a play for power thanks to a mysterious benefactor. Meanwhile, Judge Dredd conducts a routine bust that turns out all but routine when he makes a shocking (and disgusting) discovery!
