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

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

 PICK OF THE MONTH:  THE GODDAMNED #1 The creators of Scalped, reunite for a new ongoing series of stark and brutal biblical noir, which begins with a special 40 page debut issue.

"And the earth was filled with violence." Genesis 6:11 It's 1,655 years after Eden, and life on Earth has already gone to hell. The world of man is a place of wanton cruelty and wickedness. Prehistoric monsters and stone-age marauders roam the land. Murder and destruction are the rule of the day. Humankind is a failed experiment. This is life before the Flood. The story of man on the verge of his first apocalypse. Welcome to the world of the Goddamned.

 SOUNDS LIKE AWESOME  HUCK #1 In a quiet seaside town, Huck uses his special gifts to do a good deed each day. His neighbors return the favors by keeping his abilities a secret. But when a newcomer alerts the media, a firestorm erupts, sending Huck on an adventure that will change everything. (W) Mark Millar (A) Rafael Albuquerque

 JUMP ON HERE:  MONSTRESS #1 New ongoing series! Steampunk meets Kaiju in this original fantasy epic for mature readers, as young Maika risks everything to control her psychic link with a monster of tremendous power, placing her in the center of a devastating war between human and otherworldly forces. 66 pages of story and no ads! 

 THE REGULAR READS  

I HATE FAIRYLAND #2 Does Gert die by the axe of her assassin, Bruud The Brutal? Spoiler: Probably not. (W and A) Skottie Young



LAZARUS #21 The conclusion of "Poison" and an ending that'll rock your world. (W) Greg Rucka (A) Michael Lark

TOKYO GHOST #3 Led and Debbie find their target in the Gardens of Tokyo, a messianic figure that keeps the island free of all technology. (W) Rick Remender (A) Sean Murphy and Matt Hollingsworth.
