A new year is going to bring in some great new titles and covers from Skybound! HARDCORE: RELOADED and HEART ATTACK both have new issues early in their run and are just getting warmed up, MANIFEST has one of my favorite covers yet (so sue me, I’m a huge Bunnicula fan), REDNECK kicks off a new arc, OUTCAST nears the end, and OBLIVION SONG is more exciting than ever. AND, issues 1-6 of REAVER get collected for Volume 1. If you haven’t been reading it, hold onto your socks.

The continent of Madaras promised a new start for settlers… but 200 years after its discovery, the war rages on. Deep within this savage and untamed land, a darkness builds at The Anvil that must be stopped at all costs.
To do so, the Imperials assemble six of its most despicable prisoners–a turncoat, a skin eater, a sorcerer, his bodyguard, a serial killer, and the Devil’s Son.
They are the only ones who can stop the end of the new world. They are Hell’s Half-Dozen.
JUSTIN JORDAN (The Strange Talent of Luther Strode) and REBEKAH ISAACS (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) create a grim, dark fantasy comic for a post-Game of Thrones world. This is REAVER.
Collects REAVER #1-6.
