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

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

 PICK OF THE MONTH:  LAZARUS #22 "Cull," part one. There are 15 families fighting to control the world. That's 14 too many. The time has come for the cull. 

 GIVE IT A SHOT  JUPITER'S LEGACY VOL. 2 #1 The sequel to Jupiter's Legacy boasts monthly Frank Quitely. Superhero offspring Hutch and Chloe have come out of hiding with son Jason to assemble a team of super-crooks from around the globe. (W) Mark Millar (A) Frank Quitely


THE WALKING DEAD #155 The Tip of the Spear. (W) Robert Kirkman (A) Charlie Adlard, Stefano Gaudiano and Cliff Rathburn

SPAWN #265 Introducing a new villain to the Spawn mythos as someone joins Spawn's villainous rogue gallery. (W/A) Todd McFarlane and Erik Larsen

TOKYO GHOST #8 The Tokyo Ghost has come for Davey Trauma... but Constable Led Dent stands in the way. W) Rick Remender (A) Sean Murphy

 THE NEWBIE IN TOWN  SHE WOLF #1 She Wolf is a surreal exploration in horror as the story follows a teenage girl who believes she's been bitten by a savage werewolf. Soon after she begins to experience feverish nightmares that seamlessly bleed into her everyday reality. (W&A) Rich Tommaso

  1. Jupiter's Legacy is amazing! It takes soooo long for the issues to come out though. How are they going to make it a monthly?

    1. Hey Tam! I honestly think mate that is Image's main problem. I know Saga started this idea of having breaks between story arcs which has now spread to many other books in their line, but I'm old school and I want to subscribe to monthly titles. I want 12 issues a year and I don't care if publishers are trade focussed, I'm here for comics not books.

      Creator owned or not, I still see it as the duty of the publisher to sort this. Hopefully they will by 2017!
