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 where you can pre-order future releases. If you have a pull box subscription with us these magazines cost $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:
(Please Note that this month is so chock full of awesome I can’t even write about everything that I say are must-haves)
Thor HC Vol 1 Marvel Previews, Page 103
Odin comes back from a self-imposed exile, but his wife Feyja, who has been ruling while he was away, has no intention of having things to go back to the way they were. Meanwhile, their son Thor finds himself unworthy of the hammer mjolnir, which makes him a little crazy…. and a mysterious woman appears who is able to lift the hammer. With beautiful art by Russell Dauterman and colors by Matthew Wilson plus solid story telling by the lovely Jason Aaron. It’s gotta be on my must-haves this month.

Lumberjanes TP Vol 1 Page 313 – Kid Friendly!
Collect #1-4 of this internet breaking series. Ok, maybe it didn’t break the internet but it certainly blew up twitter a bit.

Penny Dora & the Wishing Box TP Page 227 – Kid Friendly!
Part of my Employee Discount Program (stay tuned for the new posting) Once upon a time (on the day before Christmas) a young girl named Penny Dora found a mysterious box on her front doorstep. A magic box with the power to grant wishes. Which sounded great…until Penny Dora found herself face-to-face with a horde of fire-breathing dragons, oodles of monsters and at least seven dwarves…all thanks to the girl she used to call best friend, now known as Princess Elizabeth.
Cleopatra in Space Vol 2 Page 360 – Kid Friendly!
15 year old Cleopatra gets transported into the really far future (where cats talk and wear cute suits) she learns of an ancient prophecy that says she is destined to save the galaxy. Stuck at school, Cleo is having a hard time adjusting to her new-found popularity and responsibility. Available in hardcover and soft. Get on pre-orders for this as the last print run was very short-lived.

Her unsettled life collides with that of a ragged young man who has survived for months on London’s streets, getting by on his wits – and his looks.
