Highlights of Image Comics this week include a new Walking Dead hardcover, the third issue of the intriguing Clockwork Orange / X-Men mash-up, They’re Not Like Us, and lots of glorious Chew.  Image Comics smartly released Chew #46 alongside the new trade paperback so that trade-waiters will be tempted to switch to floppy comics this week—but then, when vol. 10 comes out, why break up the set?

By the way, if you are trade-waiting Chew, there is a massive spoiler just a few inches below, so you may want to either skip the Chew #46 preview if you have self-control or X out this window if you don’t.
