Always entertaining to see what Diamond Comic Distributors has on the front and back of their Previews catalogue, it becomes a history of the comics direct market as the months pass and pass and pass…
Next week’s catalogue for comics being published in January 2019 has 12 Years a Slave’s John Ridley’s illustrated prose mini-series that looks at the DC Universe as seen through the eyes of the oppressed and the disenfranchised, in DC’s new Black Label series, The Other History of the DC Universe.
While on the back we have Chuck Palahniuk and Cameron Stewart’s third chapter in Palahniuk’s Fight Club story, Dark Horse Comics’ Fight Club 3, in which Tyler Durden becomes a father and must confront anarchists worse than he ever was.
