Image’s Shadowline imprint has several trade paperbacks and books arriving in stores in March 2009, and Image has sent Major Spoilers the cover images and solicitation information.Â The best item on the list (from my stand point) is Platinum Grit by Trudy Cooper and Danny Murphy.Â It’s a collected web comic, but one that is very well put together.
