The October Previews catalog arrived on Wednesday so as I read through it 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 January of 2017. If there’s anything that you’d like, please try and let me know by the twenty first of this month so I can be sure to have enough copies on hand to fill your requests and subscription orders. (Don’t feel obligated to subscribe to a whole series; if you’d just like a copy of the first issue of a new series to try it out, let me know and I’ll be sure to put a copy aside for you.)
This month the theme is From the Archives which means there will be a lot of older material, comic strip reprints from the thirties to the present, etc. If you’d like to follow along or see some images of covers and artwork you can go to www.PreviewsWorld.com
and there are other articles at www.Scoop.PreviewsWorld.com, or you could sign up for the newsletter and maybe win prizes in the weekly giveaways at www.PreviewsWorld.com/subscribe.

My Pick of the Month for comics arriving in January is ♥GOD COUNTRY #1 by Donnie Cates and Geoff Shaw; I think this is the book that will be the breakout title for Donnie.
I would like to thank you all, not only for your friendship and support that’s kept the lights on here for the past fifteen years but also for your generosity during the quarterly benefit events; we raised $1550.00 for YOUTH ON THEIR OWN on October twenty ninth during this years’ Halloween Comic Fest and the artists, friends, customers and families once again came out and dug deep to support this wonderful local organization. I am grateful and humbled; thank you so much!
I hope that you and yours are happy and healthy. Talk to you soon!
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) just send me an email and I will send you this month’s adult catalog with images, descriptions and prices.
If you’d prefer not receive this in the future please respond with UNSUBSCRIBE; I’m really not trying to spam you! I only send this to subscription customers or those who request it. (I won’t be insulted at all if you’d like to discontinue. When I proofread it each month I know first hand how tedious it is.)
