Next week's Diamond Comic Distributors' Previews catalogue, for comics shipping in March 2020 and beyond, should reach comic stores by Friday 27th, territory-depending. And on its front cover, a new comic book by Jonathan Hickman of East of West and House Of X and Mike Huddleston of Harley Quinn, The Strain and Butcher Baker described thus:
There are many assassins in the known universe. This is the story of the most well-mannered one. "Manners are a sensitive awareness of the feelings of others. If you have that awareness, you have good manners, no matter what knife you use."
The back cover has DC Comics' new series Strange Adventures by Tom King, Evan "Doc" Shaner and Mitch Gerads.
After winning five Eisner Awards and topping year-end "best of lists," the comic book of 2019 was Mister Miracle. The comic book of 2020 will be Strange Adventures.
The Mister Miracle team of writer Tom King and artist Mitch Gerads are joined by fan-favorite artist Evan "Doc" Shaner to bring you an epic tale in the tradition of Watchmen, The Dark Knight Returns, and DC: The New Frontier-a story of blood, war, and love that readers will be talking about for years to come.
Adam Strange is the hero of Rann, a man famous throughout the galaxy for his bravery and honor. After leading his adopted home to victory in a great planetary war, Adam and his wife Alanna retire to Earth, where they are greeted by cheers, awards, and parades. But not all is as happy and nice as it seems, as the decisions Adam made during battles on Rann come back to haunt his family and threaten the entire DC Universe. And now a surprise DC hero will have to choose between saving Adam Strange and saving the world.
A story like no other, Strange Adventures is an ambitious, thrilling, shocking, and beautiful 12-issue saga that will push Adam Strange to the breaking point-and beyond!
The spine features Rebellion's Best of 2000 AD. And the Diamond Previews order form features 'enter a world of steampunk airships and dragons in Red 5 Comics' Dragon Whisperer.'
