Another week of new comic books this week and it's very Image-heavy. With titles like Monstress, Roche Limit: Monadic, Rat Queens, The Humans TPB, Huck, and so many more this week it's kind of hard to ignore the quality.  If those books aren't your thing there's plenty more to choose from. Dynamite isn't too shabby either with Lords of the Jungle #1, Red Sonja, James Bond, Devolution, and Looking for Group. Check out other notable releases this week below like Clean Room, International Iron Man, Turncoat, The Doorman, and more! Happy reading!
