Issue #1 of Outcast — the newest comic by Walking Dead superstar writer Robert Kirkman — hit shelves this week, and if it’s anything like his zombie epic, we’re in for one hell of a ride.

Kirkman, in addition to being a writer, is one of five partners at Image Comics, one of the leading indie comic publishers in the industry. Despite being the only partner who’s not a co-founder, it hasn’t stopped him from becoming something of a poster child for the company—his flagship comic series is on its whopping 129th issue and has spawned one of the highest rated cable TV dramas. It’s kind of tough to top that.

Midtown Bloggerinos! Raph here, and with the hot temperatures here, that means it’s blockbuster season! With movies like Iron Man 3, Star Trek: Into Darkness, Fast 6, and the upcoming Man of Steel, Hollywood is preparing for a season of big explosions, but comics also are about to get things going: between Superman Unchained, Trinity War, Infinity, the next chapter of Saga, and many others, there’s lots of action to pack into those 22 pages of comic. Here are some of my favorite action-adventures from recent memory. They are all collected into trade paperbacks or are original graphic novels, so you can get all your bang in one space.
