Well…it had to happen sooner or later.  I think we finally hit a slow month in Previews.  We had a really good run of action packed issues of Previews.

Still, though, can’t really complain.  Your friendly neighborhood jman still came up with more than 5 picks.

Veil #3:  Dark Horse.  I gotta tell you, I kinda regret not picking this book up this past week.  Number 1 hit the shelves and I left it.  Yea, I know.  Right?  I heard a bunch of good things after I left my LCS.  So, next week?  I’ll be picking up #1.  And having the rest of the run held for me.

Superman:  Doomed #1:  DC Comics.  OK.  Even though I swore off Superman (again), I gotta see what this is going to be about.  I gotta see how they’re dealing with this whole “Death of Superman” thing.  If it”happened” in the New52.  Or didn’t.  Or will.  Or whatever.  I’m in for now, DC.  But, one wrong move and I’m dropping it like a very hot potato.

Flash #31:  DC Comics.  Future Flash?!?!  Is that you Wally?!?!?  Is this what you’ve become?  Please, DC.  Don’t mess this up.  See my feelings on Superman:  Doomed #1, if you do.

Pajama Party Harley Quinn:  DC Collectibles.  I’m just slightly disappointed in this.  Just slightly.  Only because it’s not a full fledged action figure.  Harley’s got “limited” articulation.  I guess it’s not that big of a deal.  She looks flippin awesome.  Plus, the price point is a little high.  $49.99.  Granted she’s 7.5 inches tall, so…I guess it’s ok.  Whatever.  I don’t know who I’m trying to impress here.  Articulated or not, you know I’m still getting it.

Last Broadcast #1:  Archaia.  “Throw in a decades-old conspiracy involving vaudeville magicians and occult spiritualists and you’ve got us hooked.”  Intriguing, no?  I’ve got four bucks to see what this is about.

The Bunker #4:  Oni Press.  I was fortunate enough to be turned onto this book by the owner of my LCS.  Issue one was an interesting ride.  Plus…it was long!  I don’t know how many pages it was exactly, but I was definitely more than the standard 22. Issue one was so popular, it went back for a 2nd printing.  Twisted and thought provoking and man!  I can’t wait to see where this thing goes.

Inhuman #2:  Marvel Comics.  Two words:  Joe Mad.   I’m on this book til at least he’s done with it.

previews march

Cyclops #1:  Marvel Comics.   Unlike most of the planet, I wasn’t a big fan of the X-Men.  But, I don’t mind admitting here how much I love the All New X-men, Uncanny X-men, X-men, etc.  It’s good stuff.  I love the original team in current time.  I wish Marvel would tell more stories with them dealing with culture shock, then they do.  But, who’s complaining.  So, when young Scott met his still alive, space faring dad recently?  Man!  That was good stuff.  They’ve got a lot of catching up to do…

previews march

WTF Product of the month.  DC Comics Retro Sofubi figures:  Medi Com Toys.  Can someone, anyone, explain this to me?   Preferably in 50 words or less.

 

What do you mean you haven’t seen the latest episode of the Internet show?!?!?  Make haste, yo!
