NEW for Wed 11/30/22

This is one of those pesky 5th weeks, months that have 5 Wednesdays, so the publisher output is… a little different than usual. As evidenced by DC only releasing Annuals, One-Shots or #1’s.

But there are some pretty bright spots in this list of new stuff, such as the hyper-violent, serial-killing, cannibalistic furry book PLUSH from Image, as well as 2 great #2 issues from BOOM!, BRIAR and DAMN THEM ALL.

And look, there’s plenty more to talk about this week, but you’re probably in a food-related coma right now, and information retention may not be a priority, so we’ll end this now. Have a fun/relaxing holiday weekend (or just a normal weekend) and we’ll see you soon!

     —SPOTLIGHT COMIC—
•PLUSH #1 (Image)
Serial-killing, cannibalistic furries! PLASTIC and VINYL creators DOUG WAGNER & DANIEL HILLYARD are back with a "neon-horror" spin on fursuit psychopaths and bizarre love.

Do they just want Devin for dinner... or something much more wicked?
