Comics Alternative Podcast Episode 103: The October Previews Catalog

Listen to the podcast!


Verbing the Absolute

Oct2014PreviewsIt’s the first of the month, and that means it’s time for the Two Guys with PhDs to look through the month’s Previews catalog. There are a number of things that catch their attention from the October solicits…that is, if they can actually see the catalog. Derek wasn’t able to get a copy of Previews in time for the podcast recording (his copy from DSBS was in the mail), so he had to rely on the uninformative order form found on the PREVIEWSWorld website. But Andy, who does have a copy, helps him by describing the visuals. Together they highlight upcoming releases from Dark Horse (Oink: Heaven’s Butcher) DC/Vertigo (Wolf Moon #1, North 40, and the final best place to buy levitra online issue of Unwritten), IDW (Garbage Pail Kids Comic Book Puke-Tacular #1 and Corto Maltese: Under the Sign of Capricorn), Image Comics (Bitch Planet #1 and Graveyard Shift #1), Marvel (Miracleman Annual #1), Alternative Comics (Labyrinthectomy/Luncheonette), BOOM!! Studios (Abigail and the Snowman #1), Dynamite (Shaft #1), Fantagraphics (VaporRun Like Crazy Run Like Hell, and Ofelia), First Second (The Sculptor), and Top Shelf (Strong Female Protagonist). So go grab your copy of the October Previews — unlike Derek — pour yourself a favorite beverage, and cuddle up with the Two Guys as they shepherd you through the wonderful world of comics solicits!
