2022 is almost over. We here at PCS hope is has been a good year for you. In this column, we have compiled an alphabetical list with cover art and the official solicitation text from the publishers of some of the cool new comics that are coming out this month. Check below for our PCS NOTES to find out what we just have to tell you about the new comics in question.
This month, we have books on the list from: DC Comics, Marvel Comics, AfterShock Comics, Image Comics, Boom! Studios, Dynamite Entertainment, Dark Horse Comics, IDW Publishing, Frank Miller Presents, and Black Mask Studios.
In some months we get five weeks of great comics. This month as the year crawls to an end, the first two weeks of the month have a bunch of cool and interesting new books but then it winds down in the last two weeks. That is mostly function of publishers being aware of the economic disruption in retail purchasing due to the Christmas holiday season and that they hold back new releases for the new year to begin.
We will bring you reviews of these debut issues as they come out, and don’t forget to use the comments section to let us know what you think of this list.
You will find the books listed below in the order of when they are released.
All Against All #1

Art by Caspar Wijngaard
Cover Art by Wijngaard
Writer ALEX PAKNADEL, artist CASPAR WIJNGAARD, and letterer HASSAN OTSMANE-ELHAOU present a primal vision of humanity gone terribly wrong.
In All Against All, it is the distant future. Earth is long gone, but a race of alien conquerors knows as “the Operators” have preserved its most savage animals in an artificial jungle environment they barely understand.
With no bodies of their own, the Operators move from world to world, harvesting bodies for the organic exosuits they use to wage their endless wars. Ignored and underestimated by his captors is the habitat’s sole human specimen, Helpless.
However, when their efforts to find and harvest an apex predator intensify, he gives them far more than they bargained for.
Featuring variant covers by artistic powerhouses as SEAN PHILLIPS, MARTIN SIMMONDS, and CHRISTIAN WARD!
Release Date: December 7, 2022
PCS NOTES: This book is one of our most anticipated books of the month. Having had a sneek peak at it, we are confident it will be a big hit.
