Three Upcoming IMAGE COMICS Titles You Need in Your Pull

We are sadly losing Black Science this year, with the presumed final issue coming at No. 40. Though, with loss, springs new life, as we are also getting three brand-new science fiction ongoing series from Image Comics, including one each from workhorses Jeff Lemire, creator of Descender, and The Walking Dead’s Robert Kirkman.
