Image Comics single-issue solicitations: November 2017

Sep 5, 2017

Every month, SYFY WIRE will be bringing you the solicitations for all the upcoming comic books you need to know about. Today we have Image Comics’ listings for November 2017 single-issue comics.

Some of our genre Image Picks of November include: The Grave Diggers Union #1, which is written and drawn by Deadly Class co-creator Wes Craig. Coyotes #1 is another highlight that features new artist Caitlin Yarsky and a story by Saints creator Sean Lewis about women disappearing at the border. It's a violent action thriller starring a sword-wielding girl that is sure to get some love from the sword-and-slash fans. Another first issue that will be one to watch is Evolution #1, which takes human evolution into a new space of horror and science fiction. There are four writers working on the story simultaneously. Here's the description from Skybound editor Jon Moisan:

"Telling the story of a doctor in Philadelphia desperately trying to warn the world, Christopher Sebela has written a frantic race against time. In Rome, James Asmus and Joshua Williamson show us the internal struggle of a nun questioning her faith in the face of the new species. And finally, in Los Angeles, Joseph Keatinge has built a heartrending story of what happens when old relationships are torn to shreds by forces beyond all control. Separately, any one of these stories could anchor their own book but when told together this team has assembled something that has rarely been seen in comics and the results are nothing short of extraordinary."

Beginnings and Endings

As with any month, there are stories that rev up while others come to a close. The Beauty #17 has a new story arc to jump on board. Along with Rat Queens #6, Redneck #7, and everyone's favorite kung-fu hobo comic, Rock Candy Mountain, with issue #5. Some big storylines that are coming to a close include Descender's "Rise of the Robots" arc in #26, Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips' third story arc of Kill or Be Killed, and the "Imperial Phase II" story in The Wicked + The Divine #33.

Check out all these listings and more below, and then let us know what comics are making it onto your pull list in the comments! Also be sure to check out the Image trade paperback and hardcover solicitations for November.

  • From writer RYAN O’SULLIVAN (Turncoat, The Evil Within, Warhammer 40,000) and illustrator PLAID KLAUS (Turncoat), comes the story of Ana and Gabe, the last two humans left alive in the galaxy. They’re low on fuel, they’re low on food, and they’re low on psychedelic space froot, but they’re still determined to make it to the promised land: hippy-paradise, super-planet Euphoria. This is the story of their journey, the friends and enemies they made along the way, and how the universe responded to those who dared to live freely within it.
