Image Expo 2014 announced a slew of new titles today, a lot of which sound absolutely fantastic.  I’m particularly excited for new Casanova, Kelly Sue DeConnick’s Bitch Planet, and cool sounding books from some of my favourite teams like Gillen/McKelvie, Brubaker/Phillips, and Snyder/Jock.  These should be some enjoyable books.
