Skimming thru Previews
#1
Marvel Previews Nothing terribly new.
-More Deadpool stuff,Deadpool the Duck,Gwenpool,more Gwenpool titles
-Golden Skull?At least Ewing is trying.
-Doctor Strange/Punisher is either the coolest team up ever or the dumbest.Or both.
-Haven't really noticed any changes in creative team,so things carry on as they were.
-And a bunch of Wolverine stuff,because movie.
-IIRC I mentioned Monsters Unleashed before,but there is also that event.
-Preview for Clone Conspiracy calls it the darkest Spiderman story ever.Thats nice...
I haven't yet gotten to the others,but Ill get around to it soon.

The other one:
-WWE ongoing by Dennis Hopeless?Thats just weird.
-Justice League/Power Rangers-even weirder
-Kamandi is back.
-Justice League vs Suicide Squad.Great;another Civil War-esque event.Like we dont get enough of those from Marvel.
-Ryan Choi is Atom again.I assumed they would want Ray Palmer because of the CW-verse,but okay.Also Killer Frost,Vixen and The Ray get Rebirth issues,speaking of TV.
-Jock is taking over the art duties for All Star Batman.Thats not so bad.
-After I am Suicide,Swamp Thing comes to Gotham.I hope that goes better then the last time.Or its a backup story.
-Fall and rise of Captain Atom.Nice.
-Image has a lot of promising teams(duh?),but the premises of the series dont really appeal to me TBH.
-And a Youngblood revival.I give it two issues before Rob gives up.
-Didnt even know there was a Legend of Zelda manga.Not surprised thou.
That took way longer then i thought it would.

I think the Dante one-shot from Image looks interesting (page 198). I am a fan of the artist, Darick Robertson.

Here's Images pitch:


Quote:Dante was a family man with a wife and young daughter, and also a top assassin working for an international crime syndicate. For two decades he worked hard to keep these two lives separate and was then ready to retire. Manipulated into thinking he could quit with the syndicate’s blessing, Dante was betrayed and accidentally killed a young Asian boy while fi ghting to save himself. This act changes him forever as he is supernaturally cursed and wakes up inexplicably covered with tattoos. Dante tries to uncover the source of this supernatural curse while looking for his family that has now disappeared.

Lady Castle from Boom Studios (pg 294) might be interesting, but I am a little skeptical.


Knight Guardians of Relativity
from Titan1 Studios (pg 420) might also be worth checking out. Here's the pitch:

Quote:Recovering from the ravages of the Fourth Great War, a mysterious band of men and women called the Knight Guardians are dispatched to humanity’s remaining six City States to investigate the murder of their revered brother Knight and protect the last remaining Relativity Machine from those seeking to harness the power of temporal travel and achieve immortality.

Khall - The Chronicles of a Galactic Emperor is the one book I am actually excited about (Titan Comics, pg 406). This is a Euro book translated to English. It is drawn by Valentin Secher, artist of another Euro book, The Metabarons which just came out with the first new book in many years; Book 1: The Techno-Admiral & The Anti-Pope.

Here is the pitch:

Quote:In a galaxy decimated by a brutal war, an ancient prison ship, called Empyreon, floats alone in the void.

Within its ancient walls a new battle rages, as the three races who inhabit the doomed ship vie for the resources that will ensure their survival. Peace is an impossibility as Khaal, the leader of the humans, is as bloodthirsty and ruthless as they come. As his enemies gather in the shadows, Khaal is thrust into the limelight as he fights for his life…

-A whole lot of Wolverine stuff
-Spidermans Tangled Web Omnibus,nice.

-Oh yeah,Cullen Bunn is also writing Conan.Does this guy ever sleep?

-JLA by Steve Orlando.Interesting.Orlando really has a good grasp of DC's more obscure characters.So right off the bat-Extremists,Who remembers those guys?
-Batwoman Rebirth.We did see that coming.Not that Im complaining.
-Well,you saw Direct Currents #1,so why am I even bothering with DC previews? Wink
-Highlander #1
-Invincible begins its final arc.Dont screw this up Kirkman.
-After DC-IDW-Image part you get into plain weird territory.
-Valiant is really disappointing these past few months
Well,that was a waste of time. Sad

Marvel Previews If you haven't heard the news,there is a big X-men event coming up.so thats the theme.Marvel decided to change their approach there,it seems.
-Monsters Unleashed,still
-IvsX,still
-Man-thing is back.Nice.

-Venom will fight Spiderman,who saw that coming? Smile

And the Previews:

-Hellboy,Lobster Johnson,Black Hammer-Dark Horse is looking pretty good.

-JLA by Steve Orlando,also promising.
-Those DC/Hana Barbera crossovers.Thats weird.
-Justice League/Power Rangers
-Collections I mentioned before
-I still haven't finished Fables.Im getting around to it
-IDW has more Deviations.Including Judge Dredd.What if he stayed a werewolf?
-TMNT Mutanimals and Metalhead stories.Thats cool.
