SWEET AS: The Top 6 From Image Comics' May 2016 Solicitations

When we Kiwis find something we like, we say it's 'Sweet as'. When I look at Image Comics' May 2016 solicits, these six make the 'Sweet As' grade:

 PICK OF THE MONTH:  TOKYO GHOST #7 The Tokyo Ghost has come to liberate New Los Angeles from the stranglehold of Flak Industries. But the powerful don't go down without a fight, and this fight's about to get ugly. W) Rick Remender (A) Sean Murphy

 TALK OF THE TOWN  PROPHET: EARTH WAR #5 The far future clone epic nears its end as old man Prophet reaches the same tower that awoke a sleeping empire. (W) Brandon Graham and Simon Roy (A) Grim Wilkins, Giannis Milonogiannis and Simon Roy

 GIVE IT A SHOT  THE AUTUMNLANDS #12 Things on top of the mountain get explosive. (W) Kurt Busiek (A) Benjamin Dewey


THE WALKING DEAD #154 Led to slaughter. (W) Robert Kirkman (A) Charlie Adlard, Stefano Gaudiano and Cliff Rathburn

SAVAGE DRAGON #215 The deadly Dart, head of the notorious Vicious Circle, wants young recruits -- so she's raiding the nursery and going after the most powerful recruits possible: Dragon babies! (W and A) Erik Larsen.

SPAWN #264 Spawn has to come to grips with his new powers... or lack thereof. (W/A) Todd McFarlane and Erik Larsen

What do you think? Full Image Comics May 2016 solicits here.


  1. I have a couple issues of the Brandon Graham run of Prophet and it's not bad. Definitely a nice new take than the original source material. Definitely an underrated book that should be regarded in the same light as Saga.

    So Dart's a heel/bad guy now?

  2. Seems so Dale - but things are changing up over in Dragon at the moment - in fact there will probably by a Spawn crossover soon, given the creators and the fact Spawn is pretty depowered, in seems like a wise move to make!
