Between DC Comic’s “The New 52” and Marvel “Now”, it is refreshing to see ongoing titles with more than a 100 issues; series that have a rich history and aren’t afraid of high numbers. I used to follow and collect Sara Pezinni’s adventures as Witchblade and I can’t remember why I stopped following the Image Comic (it could have had to do with the awful television adaption of the comic, or more likely, life got in the way).

Issue #167 kicks off a new arc with Part 1 of “Absolute Corruption” from writer Tim Seeley and artist Diego Bernard. It always used to be fun when Sara was forced to team up or faceoff against past Witchblade wielders. Here we go again…

Witchblade #167
Official Description: The bitter, former Witchblade bearer Katarina has transcended the Faerie realm, travelling to Chicago to intercept the fugitive murderer Toio Mulranny. And she’s going to get the Witchblade’s help to catch him, whether Sara Pezinni wants to or not.

The issue hits stands on Wednesday, June 19th, 2013 from Image Comics.

I’m still semi in shock from last months 100th issue of The Walking Dead, where (slight spoiler) one of the most beloved character in the series was killed in what was easily the most brutal and hard to read deaths in the series. And for those familiar with The Walking Dead, writer/creator Robert Kirkman doesn’t hold back. We’ve seen people get eaten alive, beheaded, their throats ripped out… we’ve even seen a woman holding a baby get gunned down killing them both. This death was particularly hard after getting to know and love the character over 99 issues. He was one of few characters that I thought were safe. Kirkman, as he has in the past, proved that no one was safe and I’m very anxious about who might be killed in the last three issues of “Something to Fear”.

The Walking Dead #101
Official Description: “SOMETHING TO FEAR” continues! In the aftermath of the events of the monumental 100th issue… things are not going well.

The issue comes out later today. I’ll be waiting for the doors to the comic store to open to get my hands on it. The Walking Dead remains the only ongoing title that I need to get right when I can. It is IMHO the best title on the market today. Have you been following “Something to Fear”? Did the last issue shock you? What do you think will happen next?

We are only a couple months away from the milestone 100th issue of Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead. If you have been to this site in the past, then you know that it is my favorite ongoing comic and while most titles get worse with age, The Walking Dead has consistently been an entertaining edge of your seat thrill ride and a character study of normal people coping with the end of the world. It spawned one of the best shows on television (and the highest rated Cable series ever), although as good as the show is, it does not hold a candle to the comic.

Now might be a good time to go back and reread the first issue of the series and thanks to Image Comics, you can legally read The Walking Dead issue 1 (and issue 49) online for free. If you are a fan of the television version of The Walking Dead, I highly (HIGHLY) recommend checking out the first issue and considering ordering the trades online. If you have never heard of The Walking Dead before reading this post, it is a comic series in which a Sheriff deputy and family man, Rick Grimes, wakes up from a coma in a hospital to discover that the world has been overrun by zombies.  Not knowing how long he was out cold, he must regain his strength and fight through hordes of the undead to find and protect his family. Along the way he runs into a lot of different survivors and finds out that some or much worse than the zombies.

Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead is easily my favorite ongoing comic series on the market today.  It is leaps and bounds better than anything Marvel or DC are putting out. It is consistently equal parts engaging and entertaining, with interesting characters and inventive situations and stories.  Thanks to Newsarama, you can read the first issue online for free.  Click here to give it a look.

If you like the issue, you can grabs the trades for the series on Amazon. They make a great gift and will be featured on the Geektastic Wishlist.

This Wednesday, the Image Comics founders bring us a comic so huge that they all came together to make it. Image United #1 features art by Erik Larsen, Rob Liefeld, Todd McFarlane, Whilce Portacio, Marc Silvestri and Jim Valentino, and was written by my favorite writer in the game, Robert Kirkman (The Walking Dead).

In the issue, the heroes of Image Universe, including Savage Dragon, Spawn, Youngblood, Whichblade and others must by united to fight the greatest threat the world has ever seen.  According to Image, the “original Image Founders draw all the characters they made history with.” From the looks of the covers and preview images, the series looks slick.

Chew from Image Comics

What do you get when you mix a detective/cannibal/clairvoyant together? You get Chew, a new ongoing comic from Image Comics by writer John Layman with art by Rob Guillory. The twisted new series focuses on Tony Chu, a cop who can get a psychic impression for anything he eats.  Need to find out who murdered someone? Well, he just needs to nibble on the corpse.  Things get a bit more complicated after the government figures out his secret. I wonder what they are going to make him eat?
