Welcome to Image Rundown!
Here’s a quick look at everything Image Comics is releasing this week, with highlights and quick reviews for new series and collected editions as well as good jumping-on points for new readers. Let’s get started!
New Series and Highlights
Bully Wars #1 – This all-ages series from Skottie Young and Aaron Conley takes us back to school at Rottenville High, where bully Rufus is about to learn that even the toughest guy in class can have a bad first day. In order to become the top kid again, he’ll have to find a way to enter the Bully Wars with a little help from some unexpected classmates. Though the art is from Conley, it reminds me a bit of Young’s so it should be a perfect for for fans of both!

Collected Editions and OGNs
Fear Agent Vol. 03 TPB
The Fix Vol. 03
The Further Adventures of Nick Wilson Vol. 01 – Many of us like to imagine what it would be like to have super powers, but can you fathom having then losing them? Nick Wilson doesn’t have to imagine, as that’s exactly what happened during his early 20’s. Now almost 30, it’s time to figure out what he’ll do with the rest of his life. With writing from Marc Andreyko & Eddie Gorodetsky and art by Stephen Sadowski & Ian Churchill, this is a must-have for every superhero fan.
Perdy Vol. 01 – Seeing as sex and robbing are her two favorite things, it’s fair to assume what Perdy will be doing in her free time after she’s released from prison. Now she’ll have to learn to adjust to a changed world and how she can score in it (pun intended, thank you).
Prism Stalker Vol. 01 – Collecting issues #1-5 of the critically acclaimed series!
Twisted Romance TPB – An exciting anthology from some of today’s top creators, including Alex de Campi! Stories of love and lust, from demons, space pirates, to princesses and dragons! With much more in store, this is one you won’t want to miss.
The Walking Dead Vol. 30 New World Order
