Horror Comics Coming Out This Wednesday – 8/24/2016

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.
