It’s the penultimate issue of our year-long celebration of Image’s 30th anniversary, and this time around we’ve got an all-new PRETTY DEADLY story by KELLY SUE DeCONNICK & EMMA RÍOS, the first NYC MECH tale in nearly 20 years by IVAN BRANDON & ANDY MacDONALD, the debut of GHOST MAKERS by EMI LENOX, “The Slacktacular Now” by JOHN ARCUDI & DOUG MAHNKE, and another look at IN HELL WE FIGHT! by JOHN LAYMAN & JOK. And as if that’s not enough, GEOFF JOHNS & ANDREA MUTTI bring us closer to the conclusion of “The Blizzard,” BRENDEN FLETCHER & ERICA HENDERSON prepare to wrap up “Red Stitches,” and the clock runs out for PATRICK KINLDON & MAURIZIO ROSENZWEIG’s “Gehenna.” Plus! SKOTTIE YOUNG’s “Stupid Fresh Mess” and DEAN HASPIEL’s “Billy Dogma!”
ComicBook.comImage's penultimate issue to its 30th-anniversary anthology is one of its best installments to date. "The Blizzard" continues to be the book's standout story. "In Hell We Fight" is setting up to be an outstanding series later this year. Pretty Deadly brings in some gorgeous artwork. "The Slacktacular Now" is a funny little laid-back one-shot. How much you enjoy these issues usually comes down to how familiar you are with current Image Comics, but this one holds up pretty well for first-time readers. Bring on the final issue.
