Flipping Through Previews...

Because I'm so late this month, this is the abbreviated version of "Things in Previews That Look Interesting But I Can't Afford To Get (with a list of things I am getting just for contrast)". I'm going to start with the bulk of the book, and then come back and cover the "big four" at the end. Please remember, I'm listing what looks interesting. The numbers after each title are usually the page number in Previews Magazine, so you can follow along at home.

AiT/Planet Lar (226): SEAL Team Seven.

Alias (226-235): Opposite Forces v2 #2 and Pakkin's Land v2 #4 made the list, Imperial Dragons #1, Gimoles #1, and Armorquest #1 look interesting.

Alternative Comics (235): Coexisting looks interesting.

Antarctic Press (243): Oz: The Manga #2 made the list.

Boom Studios (262): HERO Squared #3 made the list.

Clib's Boy Comics (268): True Story, Swear to God #14 made the list (duh).

Dork Storm Press (286): PS238 #13 made the list (also duh).

IDW Publishing (303-309): Angel: The Curse #2 made the list.

Illusive Productions (310): Dorothy #4 made the list.

Kandora Publishing (310): Barbarossa and the Lost Corsairs #5 made the list.

New England Comics (318): The Tick: Days of Drama #1 made the list.

Speakeasy Comics (327-333): The Grimoire #5 and Beowulf #4 both made the list. Some of the other books looked very interesting.

TwoMorrows Publishing (360): I really wanted the Justice League Companion, but we couldn't afford it this month.

We got nothing in the merchandise section... so back to the beginning:

Dark Horse (21-56): Conan #18 and Samurai Executioner Vol 7 made the list. Shadow Rock looked interesting.

DC Comics (57-132): Aquaman #32, Birds of Prey #84, Day of Vengeance #4, DC Special: The Return of Donna Troy #2, Green Arrow #52, Green Lantern #3, JLA #116, JLA Classified #10, JSA #75, JSA Classified #1, Legion of Super-Heroes #8, Outsiders #26, The Rann/Thanagar War #3, Plastic Man #17, Seven Soldiers: Guardian #3, Seven Soldiers: Zatanna #3, Teen Titans #26, Villains United #3, The Batman Strikes #11, Justice League Unlimited #11, Astro City: The Dark Age #2, and Neverwhere #2. Whew.

Image Comics (133-180): Wildguard: Fools Gold, Hero Camp #3 and Stardust Kid #2.

Marvel Comics (182): Incredible Hulk, Amazing Spider-Man, Shanna the She Devil, and Powers.

And that's it. Not much else to say on this one, except, wow... I'm late. I think this is the first month ever that I was the last regular subscriber to turn in my order at the local shop. Ouch. I'll try to do better next month.
