This week’s New Comics theme is “More.” More Holiday Specials! WICKED & DIVINE CHRISTMAS ANNUAL #1 and GRIMM FAIRY TALES 2017 HOLIDAY SPECIAL! More brand new #1’s! RUMBLE #1 (Rathraq is back! But who is he, exactly? Once an ancient warrior god, he was resurrected as a sword-wielding scarecrow. And now, Rathraq has transformed yet again-or has he?) GRAVETRANCERS #1 (On a journey to track down the grave of their estranged father, Maribel and Anthony find their way to a strange, seemingly abandoned field of mostly unmarked tombs. There they encounter grave-robbers who've devised a highly-addictive drug made from human remains--and the fresher the corpse, the stronger the dose.) JUDAS #1 (In a religion built on redemption and forgiveness, one man had to sacrifice himself for everyone...and it wasn't Jesus. Judas Iscariot journeys through life and death, grappling with his place in "The Greatest Story Ever Told," and how much of his part was preordained.) GIANTS #1 (A cataclysm of unknown origins unleashed a race of gigantic monsters whose presence has driven humanity underground.) More of the very best comics have to offer! THE DAMNED #6, MISTER MIRACLE #5, UNBEATABLE SQUIRREL GIRL #27, DEPT H #21, ALL NEW WOLVERINE #28, and GRASS KINGS #10! Here’s to “More” Happy Holidays!
It’s December, so that means Holiday Specials and Team-Ups! Such as Grant Morrison’s KLAUS CRISIS IN XMASVILLE #1 and DC UNIVERSE HOLIDAY 2017.

There are also a few new Image Comics #1’s like SLEEPLESS #1 (from the writer of Alex + Ada and the artist of Shutter), PARADISO #1 (what if in Sim City, the CITY was the player?) and WITCHBLADE #1 (yup, she’s back again).
