Hey everybody! Guess what time it is?
It’s PREVIEWS time!
What’s Previews some may ask? It’s the monthly magazine that tells you a ton of amazing stuff that’s coming out (usually in 2-3 months time). It’s pre-orders, basically. If you have a subscription with us it’s $1. If not it’s $4.95. It’s huge and tons of fun to look through.
So, everyone get out Previews and turn to page….
Here’s my list of must-haves this month:
Spider-Gwen Page 26 (Marvel Previews)
#2 is in this previews. If you missed signing up for #1, never fear! Just ask us here. Do it! (#1 is scheduled to come out 2/25/15)
Note: If you don’t have a box with us put your phone number in instead of a box # when using our subscription form.
Have you seen Batgirl #40’s variant cover? Page 121
It’s Purple Rain!! Pre-order this one fo’ sure. And if you’ve missed Batgirl single issues, or prefer bound editions, her Hardcover is in this previews! Preorder now! Babs Tarr’s artwork is amazingly awesome.
Jem & the Holograms #1 Page 165
It’s officially here to order. Art by the super-rad Ross Campbell (Glory, Wet Moon). I HIGHLY recommend this! But then again, I’m a little biased. See the cover of Previews? That’s it! And it’s glittery.
You need to check out this title. With an all female creative team – (W) Scott Mairghread (A) Sarah Stone – it’s a fun and beautiful to look at. If you missed Windblade‘s first series I say order it noooow!
Gronk Vol 2 (link is for V.1 but notes this is an ongoing title)
[Kid-Friendly] The second collection of Katie Cook’s awesome and adorable web-comic is ready for your pre-orders.
Princeless The Pirate Princess #3 (linked to #1)
The Long awaited series is now regular. If you haven’t signed up for this do it now. #1 is scheduled for release 1/28/15.
Whispered Words GN Vol 1 Pg 367
The story of two high school girls, Sumika and Ushio. One is in love with the other, but is unable to confess. To complicate things, a cross-dressing boy, Masaki, is in love with one of them. What will happen in this mixed-up love triangle mess? Soooooo, looking forward to this. So much so it’s on my Employee Discount Program List (Stay Tuned for that!)
Things to check out:
We Can Never go Home #1 Pg 287
A well worn mixtape, a stolen convertible, a duffel bag full of cash, a fully loaded .45, and super-powers. Seventeen and on the run is the only way to see America right. Sounds interesting. Things going horribly wrong; crime sprees and teenage drama. Yes.
Giant Days #1 Pg 303
“John Allison is well known for his funny and intelligent webcomics Bad Machinery and Scary Go Round. His story of three friends at university lightly flavored with the occult features some of the best dialogue in comics, and we couldn’t help but think it’s like Monty Python goes to college. Sign us up!” -Previewsworld
Nutmeg #1 Page 261
Looks pretty cute. Previews says it’s “Betty & Veronica” meets “Breaking Bad.” The creators say it is a strong PG-13.
Roller Girl GN Pg 343
Sybil The Backpack Fairy Vol 5 Pg 367 – From Papercutz who also does Dance Class and Ernest & Rebecca.
My First Book of Girl Power Board Book Pg 423
Penny Dora & the Wishing Box #5 (trade hopefully next month) Page 241
Oddly Normal TPB Page 230
