From Big Girls to Cruel Summers in Image Comics August 2020 Solicits

Image Comics has plenty of solicitations for August 2020, but first, an important message.

Due to COVID-19 effects on the industry, many of the release dates on forthcoming launches and collected editions are still subject to change. Retailers will be notified of any updates to Image release dates via Diamond's vendor site. Image Comics will continue to message consumers via official social media channels of upcoming titles and encourage them to support comic shops and independent bookstores through this crisis by ordering from shops' online stores, taking advantage of curbside pick-up, and donating to BINC Foundation.

Now onto the Big Girls, the Lost Soldiers, the Bomb Queens, the Fire Powers, Hedra, Cruel Summers and Sexual Gary.
