SWEET AS: The Top 6 From Image Comics' November 2014 Solicitations

When we Kiwis find something we like, we say it's 'Sweet as'. When I look at Image Comics' November 2014 solicits, these six make the 'Sweet As' grade:

 PICK OF THE MONTH:
LAZARUS #13 

Can I find any other way to smuggle Lazarus plugs into this site? I don't know, probably.. the sidebar could do with a refresh... Seriously though, this is the best book on the planet right now and this cover, one of the best of the series. Step aside Cyclops and Havok, sibling rivalry has a new face.

Image says: Conclave Part Three Surrounded by decadent luxury, the Conclave of the 16 Families continues. As new alliances are formed and old ones destroyed, Forever is dispatched by her father with a uncharacteristically straightforward mission: kill her brother, Jonah. (W) Greg Rucka (A) Michael Lark

 SOUNDS LIKE AWESOME

TOOTH & CLAW #1  Busiek returns to Image Comics with a new ongoing series! Conan meets Game of Thrones meets Kamandi in an original high-fantasy epic for mature readers, as a secret conclave of wizards brings a legendary champion back through time to save the world, with disastrous consequences. The action begins in a spectacular double-sized first issue, with forty-four pages of story with no ads for the regular price of $2.99! (W) Kurt Busiek (A) Ben Dewey.

 JUMP ON HERE:

(W) David Hine (A) Laura Braga
