Scumbag, Walking Dead, Blue In Green in Image Comics October 2020 Solicits

 

A new Rick Remender series with Lewis LaRosa and Moreno Dinisio leads Image Comics October 2020 solicitations, with The Scumbag, closely followed by a reprinting of The Walking Dead in full unliving colour. But we also have launches of Commanders In Crisis from Steve Orlando and Davide Tinto, and getting Getting It Together back on schedule. Throw in original graphic novels Blue In Green by Grafity's Wall team Ram V and Anand Rk, and Planet Paradise by Jesse Lonergan and that's a pretty decent spread.

Grant, earning him not only widespread popularity but the presidency as well. Today, elections are decided by brutal, highly publicized hand-to-hand combat in arenas called Stumps. And in a society that adores violence this much, it's no surprise that powerful people get away with murder.
