Look for a couple of Oz books with Oz afficiando Eric Shanower attached to them. Vertigo releases a new edition of Peter Milligan and Duncan Fegredo’s Enigma! That story had a huge impact on me when it came out. Sina Grace draws the new all ages Image series Penny Dora. Drawn & Quarterly gives Moomin the deluxe treatment and Fantagraphics offers up again the searing and haunting 7 Miles A Second. Also, there are several new or reissued trades from DC, Marvel, Dark Horse, and Image, like the second trade of Rat Queens and the last half of Gail Simone’s short lived The Movement.
