  1. I’m sure I’m in the minority with not being a fan of the slew of sci-fi based Image titles, which seems to be most of their newer releases in the last year or so. I want more of quality serial killer violence type

    1. I’m with you Lonzilla. I have a few sci-fi titles in my pull but I much prefer the murder/mystery type stuff.
      I’ll probably add Big Man Plans to my pull. I’m tempted to take a chance on Southern Cross but my pull is already fairly crowded so i’ll probably pass.

  2. huge Lemire fan so looking to check out Descender. He’s also taking over for Fraction on Hawkeye, whenever that series wraps up…
