The September Previews catalog arrived on Wednesday, August thirtieth. (I’ll do my best to get this to you by the first of September.) These solicitations are for comics and products that will begin shipping in November of 2017. I will try to point out the new and notable items that I think might interest you. 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.)
The theme this month is ‘As Seen on TV’ so there will be comics and collections related to television programs prominently featured. If you’d like more information or would like to 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.

Mark Waid and Chris Samnee’s ♥CAPTAIN AMERICA #695 relaunch from Marvel but the series I’m most looking forward to in November and my Pick of the Month is Zach Kaplan and Andrea Mutti’s ♥PORT OF CALL #1 from Image. I’ve enjoyed Kaplan’s Eclipse series so much that I think this is a perfect vehicle for his story telling skills.
And finally I’d like to extend my grateful thanks for your support, your orders, your generosity with your time and your money during the quarterly fund raisers but mostly for your friendship. See you in the funny books!
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.

(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 can be.)
