Preview Reviews for the week of 5/22/2019: Road of Bones #1 and Incursion #4

Welcome to the latest installment of Preview Reviews.  This is where we give advanced glimpses at some of the comics that will be coming out this Wednesday.

A reminder for you. Here at PopCultureSquad, we are decidedly Anti-Spoiler.  We feel that ruining someone’s experience with something for the sake of getting a scoop or clicks is the wrong thing to do. Therefore, we have decided to publish this column, as necessary, with mostly spoiler-free reviews of upcoming issues.  Hopefully, the information that we share with you will increase your excitement for these books.

This week we have TWO preview comics. The first is the debut of Road of Bones by Rich Douek and Alex Cormack, published by IDW. This is one of the books that we were eagerly anticipating and featured in our New Number Ones column for May.

The second book is the conclusion to Incursion by Alex Paknadel and Doug Braithwaite, published by Valiant. We have been excited about this story since the debut issue.

You can find Road of Bones and Incursion at your LCS or on Comixology on May 22, 2019.
