COMIC BOOK DAY: Notable New Releases (10/15)

new comics 10/15 by Slidely Slideshow

A fairly light week in comics. It's heavier in independents which is always a good thing and with Halloween fast approaching there's a lot of supernatural stuff being released. 

Some big names in indies like Greg Rucka - Veil #5, Joshua Hale Fialkov - The Life After #4, Steve Niles - Criminal Macabre #2, Jimmy Palmiotti - Painkiller Jane #3, and Warren Ellis - Trees #6 are sure bets this week. 

However don't sleep on talents like Cullen Bunn - The Sixth Gun: Days of the Dead #3, Ryan Cady - Witchblade: Case Files #1, and Grace Ellis and Noelle Stevenson - Lumberjanes #7.

Happy reading!

REVIEW: 'Infidel' #1 by Pornsak Pichetshote, Aaron Campbell, and Jose Villarrubia

'Infidel' #1 by Pornsak Pichetshote and Aaron Campbell arrives at a time when the horrors of everyday life for marginalized people is scary enough but add misogyny and xenophobia from demons and well, that's just multi-dimensional haterade.
