Another new comic day arrives and it's very Image Comics heavy. There's even a double dose of Ed Brubaker with The Fade Out #6 and the trade paperback of Velvet: The Secret Lives of Dead Men. Scott Snyder and Jock continue their creepfest with Wytches #6. There's also two from Jay Faerber with Secret Identities #4 and the trade paperback of Graveyard Shift. Chip Zdarsky's Kaptara is back with issue two and Matt Hawkins' The Tithe #2 ratchets up the tension. But wait! There's some neat stuff from other publishers as well.
