2016 is winding down, and it’s been raining here for the better part of two weeks. Hopefully the weather is better where you are! New comics drop this Wednesday, including the end of one great series, and the start of potentially another. As always, the final page has the complete list of new releases courtesy of Diamond Comics, and just because it didn’t make my personal list doesn’t mean it isn’t good. Enjoy!

Final Fates! Antonius Axia’s nightmarish journey through the heart of the remote Roman colony of Britannia has brought him to death’s door. But when the world’s first detective confronts his deepest fears about gods, men and civilization, will he be able to complete the mission given to him by Emperor Nero, or will his mind collapse under the unfathomable weight of the void that now stands revealed before him?
I spoke at length about how much I enjoyed Britannia’s premiere issue. While the series is sure to be collected in trade, why bother waiting? The dark, horrifying tone is really something special, and this book absolutely deserves your eyes.
Next up, another Marvel event! But this one has potential to lead to some good changes…
