This is a big week for comics, as publishers roll out new material and tie up more than a few ongoing titles. Marvel in particular has its fair share of final issues debuting this Wednesday as they prepare for the oncoming wave of Marvel NOW titles that are rapidly approaching. DC, Dark Horse, and Image have several stellar options on the table as we head into New Comic Book Day. This week, we welcome a ghostly new edition to the Dark Horse family, hack our way through some post-apocalyptic debris, and become unlikely allies with a bunch of Rogues.
