Image Comics‘ new series called Slumber has issue #3 written by Tyler Burton Smith with art by Vanessa Cardinali.

Aftershock Comics has The Naughty List #2 written by Nick Santora with art by Lee Ferguson, coming out this week. This was my pick of the week when it first came out last month. It is a fun story. We get a vastly different version of Santa, how he lives his life, and what he has to deal with now that something very special was taken from him.

Source Point Press had a three-issue mini-series called Good Boy. It is a version John Wick, but his dog being the one seeking revenge for his fallen master. Now they bring use the second mini-series. Good Boy #1 is by Christina Blanch, Garrett Gunn, and Jon Jespersen with art by Kit Wallis, and Doug Mahnke. This number one will also have some different covers to choose from as well.

The last book I think you should be getting this week is from  Image Comics. The title is Step by Bloody Step #4 by Simon Spurrier with art by Mat Lopes. This is the last issue in this mini-series. It is an exceptional story without saying any words. The art is so amazing if you can see the story being told. But it has been wonderful to see.
