Ten Things I Found In November’s Previews

Posted by August 19, 2011 Comment

Just been browsing… a few things I hadn’t come across before.

1. Marvel will be publishing the Superior charity comic created at the Kapow Comic Convention as the Kapow Guinness World Record Special #1.

2. October is a big month for the Xbooks. Even more than you thought. Uncanny X-Men #1 and #2, Wolverine #18 and #19, X-Men #20 and #21, X-Men Legacy #258 and #259, New Mutants #33 and #34, X-23 #16 and #17. Even more expensive to follow regenesis…

3. There are 24 Tintin or Tintin-related collections solicited or resolicited for November. Almost as if there’s a movie out.

4. There are 31 Disney collections resolicited by Boom for November. Almost as if there’s a licence on the way out.

5. If Jae Lee is drawing Kirby Genesis Silver Star covers, does that mean his Marvel exclusive contract has expired?

6. Transfuzion Publishing is putting out the Burke & Hare graphic novel, having escaped the collapse of Insomnia.

7. A new publisher presumably linked to software publisher Ubisoft, Ubiworkshop seem to be publishing the collection of the Assassins Creed comic series from DC.

8. Avengers gets an Omnibus, with a John Romita Jr cover, or a direct market Jack Kirby cover. For which the estate of Jack Kirby will not be paid.

9. Elektra Assassin gets a Premiere Hardcover.

10. Billy Tucci’s A Child Is Born is published from Apostle Comics. Quite a jump from the Cassandra Cain comic he was going to be writing and drawing…
