As we get to the penultimate day of the Twelve Days of Christmas promotion from ComiXology, we get the first issue of Ciudad, which comes from Oni Press. It’s also an interesting one as it combines the writing talents of Andre Parks with Joe and Anthony Russo, who are doing the two Captain America movies and are slotted for the Avengers: Infinity War two parter as well. The book came out back in October and is an interesting one because it’s a five issue series that competed in five weeks and already has a full trade available as well, making it very easy to pick up if you like what you read here.
