SWEET AS: The Top 6 From IDW's December 2015 Solicitations

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

Secord, also known as The Rocketeer, has been thrust full throttle into the heat of battle, and--with or without his jet pack--he will depend on his wits and daring if he is to survive! 40 pages (W) Marc Guggenheim (A) Dave Bullock
