The June Previews catalog is sitting on my desk, available for your perusal when you stop by. Meanwhile I will try to point out the new and notable items that I think might interest you.
These solicitations are for comics and products that will begin shipping in August. If there’s anything that you’d like please try and let me know by the twenty first of the month so I can be sure to have enough copies on hand to fill your requests and subscription orders.
Some of the codes and abbreviations that I use are: HC (hard cover), TP (trade paperback), SC (soft cover), GN (graphic novel), OGN (original graphic novel-not a reprint or collection), MMPB (mass market paperbacks), AF (action figure), T/C (trading cards), T/S (tee shirt) and ☼
(to denote an excellent writer, creator or title deserving wider recognition in my humble opinion).
Besides the monthly Previews catalog there is also an ‘Adult Supplement’ which showcases the ‘adults only’ comics, books and videos. If you are interested in seeing what’s available (and you’re over eighteen) please send me an email and I will email you this month’s adult catalog in a .pdf format with images, descriptions and prices.
The theme this month is Kids Comics so expect a lot of new items for the younger readers, but also keep in mind that ‘Kids Comics’ doesn’t mean they’re only for kids. Many books that fall under this category are just brilliant stories for all ages; think ‘Bone’, ‘Takio’, ‘Tintin’, ‘Uncle Scrooge’, etc.

Although we were led to believe that the series ended with issue thirty one SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN #32 indicates that it’s not over yet.
