In these twelve previews of today’s Image Comics releases, we see a lot of Bruegel-esque torment:  James Robinson torturing himself on the can in Airboy #1; Israelites literally torturing a Philistine in The Covenant #1; Rob flagellates himself over his So Many Bad Decisions in the second issue of Bob Fingerman’s new Minimum Wage series; Nailbiter #13 is titled “I’m In Love With a Serial Killer!;” and, coyotes prowl around and atop a school bus to tear at its living and dead passengers in No Mercy.

Official previews:

Airboy 1

Cover Price: $3.50

Digital Price: $2.99

Worlds and minds explode in a brand-new series! When acclaimed comics author JAMES ROBINSON (Starman, Fantastic Four) is hired to write a reboot of the 1940s action hero Airboy, he’s reluctant to do yet another Golden Age reboot. Just what the hell has happened to his career–?! His marriage?! His life?! Hey, it’s nothing that a drink can’t fix. It’s after one such night of debauchery with artist GREG HINKLE that the project really comes into its own. Quite literally. Because Airboy himself appears to set the two depraved comic book creators on the straight and narrow. But is the task too much for our hero?
