March 2014 solicits came out last week so I can finally mention this one!
The X-Files: Conspiracy: The Crow
Denton J. Tipton (w) • Vic Malhotra (a)
Bernard is a decorated state policeman in love with his partner. But their romance is brutally cut short when both die following a high-speed pursuit and fiery car crash involving the Lone Gunmen. Bernard inexplicably awakens to find himself resurrected by an otherworldly crow and with only one thing on his mind: vengeance.

This issue is part of a big crossover at IDW between the X-Files and various other properties that IDW handles (The Crow, Ghostbusters, TMNT, and Transformers). It should be really cool!
If you're interested, make sure you let your comic shop know you want to order a copy.
In other news, the collected Hardcover edition of Thumbprint came out last Wednesday.
It's a lovely package with the 3 issues, the novella, a sketchbook/process section, and a one shot by Joe Hill, Jason Ciaramella, and artist Nat Jones called Kodiak.
The single issues were printed on matte non-glossy paper, which I totally dug, but I coloured the book thinking it was going to be printed on glossy, so this version has the truer intent of my colours and I think they look really good!
You can find the hardcover in all comic stores, most large chain book stores, and of course online.
