This week sees the end of a long running, critically acclaimed series by Mike Mignola and friends and the start of a new one. Abe Sapien wraps up with issue #36 by Mignola, Scott Allie, and Sebastian Fiumara and a new Witch Finder series entry with Witch Finder: City of the Dead #1 by Mignola, Chris Roberson, and Ben Stenbeck. Also, just in time for a wild election season, Army of Darkness: Ash for President One Shot by Elliot Serrano and Diego Galindo.
This week in new comics readers get to witness a spectacular ending and a notable beginning. Buffy Season Ten #30 wraps up the continuation of the popular television series in comic book form and DC unveils the first issue in their reboot of Hellblazer, starring everyone’s favorite con-man/magician John Constantine. Part of DC’s recent (and surprisingly frequent) relaunch of their universe, writer Simon Oliver places the title character with fellow former Vertigo stand-out Swamp Thing in a dark corner of the re imagined shared world.

Action Lab Entertainment has provided us a preview of the new Puppet Master comic.
Things are going just great at the newly reopened Bodega Bay Inn! Okay, so maybe a guest or two have gone missing, but how about that view? And people are reporting things moving in the shadows, but they’re also enjoying the continental breakfast! No… those noises downstairs definitely DO NOT sound like Puppets fighting Luchadores. That would just be crazy…
Image Comics has provided us a preview of the new The Black Monday Murders comic.
A new crypto-noir series about the power of dirty, filthy money… and exactly what kind of people you can buy with it. The Black Monday Murders is classic occultism where the various schools of magic are actually clandestine banking cartels who control all of society: a secret world where vampire Russian oligarchs, Black popes, enchanted American aristocrats, and hitmen from the International Monetary Fund work together to keep all of us in our proper place.
Lion Forge has provided us a preview of the new Night Trap comic.
The body count begins as the vacationing teens set off a series of gruesome traps. Unfortunately for them, the Trapper is not alone, but unfortunately for the Trapper, it looks like Kelly has some experience with this. From one of the most critically acclaimed horror writers in comics comes a wholly unexpected tribute to classic slasher movies!
