SWEET AS: The Top 6 From Image Comics' May 2015 Solicitations

When we Kiwis find something we like, we say it's 'Sweet as'. When I look at Image Comics' May 2015 solicits, these six make the 'Sweet As' grade:

  1. SAGAAAAAA!!!!!
    Do you know how many people I have forced to read this book? Neither do I. I've lost count.
