Image Comics has sent us a sneak peek for titles shipping next week. The issue that peaks my interest this week, is Lions, Tigers & Bears, which has had a lot of success lately with the trade, selling out in three of the comic shops I visited last week. And if you haven’t read True Story Swear to God, then you are really missing out. I’ve been following this series for a couple of years, and it is funny, sad, and romantic all at the same time. As always click the thumbnails for larger images and watch out for the big scary shadow monsters.
