After taking a look over the solicitations for Marvel and DC in December, it’s time to take a look at Image’s new comics. There’s a whole new load of first issues, along with some specials and – uh-oh – a Black Kiss 2 Christmas Special. Ho-ho-ho?

Wolverine, Alpha Flight, Jack Bauer, Captain Kirk: many of the most famous heroes in modern history have been Canadian. But despite that, Canada still has a reputation mainly for politeness, rather than spandex-based punching and flying. As an attempt to finally wake the world up to Canada’s innate ability to defeat supervillains, writer J. Torres is this October launching a new anthology via Indiegogo, called True Patriots.
Featuring a line-up of writers and artists including Faith Erin Hicks, Andy Belanger, Ramon Perez and J. Bone, the anthology will create and celebrate a range of new Canadian superheroes. And while some of them will be new creations, the book will also see some more familiar faces appear as well.
