Gonna be a quick Previews trip this time, folks.
Free Comic Book Day is in May! (pp. 24-29) — Here are the titles I’m looking forward to: Bongo Comics, EC Sampler, Scrooge McDuck, Atomic Robo, Comics Festival!
BPRD: The Warning (p. 51) — The deluge of Hellboyverse trades continues, not that I’m complaining!
Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service vol 9 (p. 59) — My favorite manga I’m getting at the moment!
Two Showcases for me this month! Doom Patrol vol 1 and Legion of Super-Heroes vol 3! (pp. 100-101)
Top 10 Special #1 (p. 115) is worth checking out.
I’ll be getting Tales Designed to Thrizzle #5 (p. 282).
Oni’s got two things for me on page 303: North World vol 2 and Wasteland #25.
There’s a Torchwood: Rift War GN (p. 314) that collects the strips from the magazine. I’m not the biggest Torchwood fan in the world, but does anyone know if these are worthwhile?
20th Century Boys vol 2 (p. 332) — Buying this series means having to look at the Tokyopop pages again, which I hate doing.
Sorry, not much snarkiness in this Previews post, but there is this:
Back to the Future Flux Capacitor (Unlimited Edition) (p. 392) — Here’s the solicitation copy:
A Diamond Select Release! Building on the success of, and demand for, the sold-out Flux Capacitor Replica from the 1985 classic Back to the Future, Diamond Select presents the highly anticipated – and even more screen-accurate (no strobe light) – Unlimited Edition! Still measuring in at 16″ tall x 11″ wide, this working electronic Flux Capacitor features the same attention to detail and sturdy construction as the original, plus an improved lighting design taken directly from the movie!
Imagine how the people who bought the Limited edition (for $250) feel, knowing that there’s now an improved version for $275? I wonder how many will re-buy it.
There’s also a Map of “The ‘Verse”, the Firefly/Serenity Universe (p. 461). It features the “names of the 215 terraformed worlds and moons” that comprise the location of the show. Divide 215 by 14 (the number of actual episodes, plus the movie) and I guess they mentioned slightly over 15 worlds and moons in each show!
That’s it for this month. Sorry, no big laffs. Maybe next month?
