Flippin’ through Previews – January 2011

It’s time once again to dream of better days in the future … which is what Previews always promises us, yet often fails to deliver!!!!

Whedonites rejoice!

Dark Horse:

Axe Cop shows up in a new mini-series, Bad Guy Earth, on page 34. This item is basically so Bill Reed will be happy. I must say, the line in the panel in Previews, “Real cops don’t have dinosaurs!”, cracked me up a tiny bit. But that’s what Axe Cop is like to me – the occasional funny line surrounded by tedium. Yes, I’m aware I have no soul. You’re not the first to notice. (2 March)

I certainly don’t mean to pick on Felicia Day, but the solicitation for The Guild: Tink one-shot (page 52) is weird. Above the cover, in bold print, we see “Written by Felicia Day!” Okay, it’s her creation, right? Who else would write this? I’m actually interested in this because of the artists involved (Kristian Donaldson, Jeremy Bastian, Tim Seeley, Adam Warren, and Wellinton Alves), but it’s weird that Dark Horse would make a big deal about Day writing her own creation. (16 March)

Tinkerballa kicks ass and takes names!

DC:

You know how the Avengers have become the fulcrum around which the Marvel Universe now rotates, because Bendis loves them so very, very much? I guess that’s what Green Lantern has become for DC, because of Johns’ deep, abiding man-crush on Hal Jordan. I mean, the big events over the past few years in the DCU all seem to come from the GL part of the U, which is odd as the Green Lanterns ought not to care all that much about the Earth, given that they’re supposed to be, you know, policing the known universe, which is kind of big. But on page 68, DC fires up Green Lantern #64 and the next big event: “War of the Green Lanterns,” which will be annoying us all year. I don’t really care which franchise gets to be the big dog at either company, I just find it interesting that 15 years ago, it was the X-Men and Superman (right?) and now the paradigm has shifted dramatically. (16 March)

Hey, look – it’s Justice League: Generations Lost #21-22 (page 72), and it certainly appears DC is killing off yet another ethnically diverse superhero! I really hope they do, because I always enjoy watching the Internet have a stroke. Danny D can’t seriously be considering this after getting all huffy about Ryan Choi, can he? CAN HE?!?!?!?! (9 and 23 March)

Oh, Jaime - you were too swarthy to live!!!!

I love me some Ed Benes, yes I do:

At least her shins are protected!

Especially this part:

Diana keeps up with all the waxing trends!

Frazer Irving draws Xombi #1 (page 77). I don’t have any interest in this, I just like pointing out when Irving is working on something that’s NOT Gutsville. (16 March)

I think I love this cover to Batman: Europa #3 (page 79):

Feel the might of INDUSTRY!!!!!

Holy crap, that’s awesome. (2 March)

While I don’t hate the idea of DC going back to $2.99 books (even with two fewer pages), it means that we don’t get the Francavilla back-up in Detective Comics (page 83), which kind of sucks. Still, Batman finding a dead killer whale in a bank sounds like a good start to a story! (30 March)

I didn’t know the premise of the Jimmy Olsen back-up feature (which is partially reprinted and concludes in a one-shot on page 93), but the fact that Jimmy is trying to prove to his ex-girlfriend that he can have as interesting a week as the subject of her feature doesn’t fill me with confidence. Really? That’s the premise? Yeesh. I mentioned that this week’s installment felt like a sitcom, and that premise sounds even more like something Jack Tripper would do. Jimmy needs Kelly Hu to slap him and say, “You’re Candace Flynn!”*

DC has gotten around to collecting Finals, Will Pfeiffer and Jill Thompson’s mini-series from, what, a decade ago (page 106)? I’m sure someone out there has read this. Is it worth the 8 dollars? (9 March)

Speaking of old stuff, Night Force #1-4 is collected on page 107. Yes, it’s Marv Wolfman and Gene Colan, doing their thing! It’s the comic Greg Hatcher always wanted but never got! Now, his darkest wishes have been fulfilled!!!!! (23 March)

Hey, look - it's a ritual that will lure Other Greg into buying this!!!!

If you think Kelly Thompson has good taste, check out the trade of DV8: Gods and Monsters on page 123. If you think Chad Nevett has good taste, you can skip it. (Didn’t Chad not dig this mini-series?) For me, Wood + Isaacs = GOLD! (20 April)

The Vertigo crime line keeps limping along, and I have to wonder why on earth DC waits a year to release the softcover versions, as they’re doing with Area 10, the trade of which shows up on page 128. This is a nifty little story (my review is here), but I wonder if DC has ever heard of “striking while the iron is hot.” Oh well – this is only 13 bucks, so I encourage you to give it a look if you haven’t yet. (13 April)

Hey, look on page 130: It’s a resolicitation for Joe the Barbarian #8! How nice that someone at DC remembered that it hadn’t actually, you know, finished. Jesus, the God of All Comics tries my patience occasionally. (2 March)

* Yes, it’s a “Phineas and Ferb” reference. I have young children. Plus, it’s freakin’ awesome.

IDW:

Suicide Girls #1 is offered on page 153. Apparently “there will be tattoos, piercings, and a whole lot of butt-kickin’ girls and burlesque.” There’s a lot wrong with this, but at least they got Cameron Stewart to draw the covers!

Can Cameron Stewart get you to buy this?!?!?

If you’re interested in butt-kickin’ girls, you can always check out Danger Girl: Destination Danger on page 164. Who doesn’t love J. Scott Campbell creations?

Image:

Butcher Baker, the Righteous Maker is offered on page 168. You know Joe Casey will write a tremendous comic, and Mike Huddleston’s art is phenomenal in the brief preview. I just love how most of the second page is “censored for Previews.” That’s awesome. (30 March)

Presumably, Casey feels like he hasn't offended enough people in his career!

Richard Starkings brings us Elephantmen: Man and Elephantman on page 172. Apparently it’s a good place to reset and lure in new readers – and you should all be reading Elephantmen, right? Plus, one cover has Ian Churchill poking fun at his old Uncanny X-Men cover of Jean mackin’ on Logan, so that’s keen. (30 March)

I’m kind of curious about Lorna: Relic Wrangler on page 182, even though I fear it will be wildly derivative. It’s about a young lady who has to find an artifact in Washington, D.C. before the world ends. Yes, it’s just that silly. But the preview art looks charming, and it’s only a one-shot, so everything will get wrapped up quickly! (23 March)

When tentacles and zombie hands attack, you just shoot them!

As Chew isn’t insane enough, on page 190 we get issue #27 – yes, the creators jump ahead to show what’s going on nine issues from now. Just for the hell of it, presumably. Dear Sweet Jeebus, I love Chew. (23 March)

How far in advance are books needed for Previews? I ask only because Santa Claus vs. the Martians #4 is solicited, and as we all know, the book has been pushed back to next Christmas, so I wonder when this went to Previews to be put in this month’s catalog. Don’t order it, people – the book won’t come out for a year!

Marvel:

Page 1: Venom #1: “His first ongoing series!” Wait … is it 1994? What’s going on? (2 March)

I’ll probably wait for the trade of 5 Ronin (page 2), but Peter Milligan writing Wolverine, Psylocke, Punisher, Hulk and Deadpool (yuck) into 17th-century Japan has awesome written all over it.

I have so many good Psylocke stories, if only Joey Q would give me a call!!!!

Marvel gets around to doing something with the CrossGen properties on pages 4-5 with Sigil and Ruse, the second of which I’ll probably get (or wait for the trade). I would like these to do well so Bart Sears can start up The Path again, El Cazador could return, and Kiss Kiss Bang Bang would be reborn. But I’m not holding my breath. (9 and 2 March, respectively)

The solicitation for New Avengers #10 (page 19) is unfortunately misleading, as Howard Chaykin, I guess, pencils some of it. The solicitation actually reads, “[Bendis and Deodato] both welcome a guest appearance by comics legend Howard Chaykin.” If only they meant that Chaykin would appear in the comic itself, but I very much doubt that. I would totally buy it if that happened. (9 March)

Look – it’s yet another new Spider-Man costume (page 32)! Wait … is it 1994? Where am I? (2 March)

All he needs is a ripped T-shirt!

I have nothing to say about this cover, because it’s too damned cool (page 43):

In an alternate universe, Mike Mignola has been drawing Marvel comics for the past 20 years, and we've been getting stuff like this all the time

Hey, remember the good times at Marvel when the regime wanted to return to all the old numbering because they wanted to re-connect with their past glory and they didn’t want to insult long-time fans who were getting a bit peeved by a new #1 issue every five years or so? And remember how the first title they did this with was Fantastic Four, because it deserved to be the first Marvel title to reach issue #500 (even though it, you know, wasn’t the first, not by a long shot)? Those were good days, weren’t they? Well, Joey Q and his minions want you to know that they don’t really give a shit about that shit anymore, as they’re relaunching Fantastic Four with a new #1 on page 46. It’s not even a new creative team or anything. They apparently did some market research, however, and discovered that today’s short-attention span audience doesn’t want to say four whole goddamned syllables when they’re discussing a book, so they named it FF. Now all you have to say is “fffffff ….” and everyone will know you’re talking about the book instead of failing to spit on them. Make Mine Marvel!!!!!! (23 March)

I really dig this cover for Generation Hope #5 (page 71), but in the solicitation, it tells us that it’s not the “final cover.” Why the crap not, Marvel?!?!? (2 March)

Make it happen, Joey Q!

Lots of Thor trades on sale in March (five on pages 94-96). The movie comes out in early May, so I guess Marvel figures the build-up will be in full swing by then. I wonder if they’d be better off having them out in April, but I assume there will be more a-coming.

Girl Comics shows up in a trade on page 103. So does Heralds. It’s the chick page! They’ll get one page and like it!!!! (9 and 30 March, respectively)

You know what’s coming … the back of the book!!!!!

Down on page 224 is Shadoweyes in Love from SLG, a book I’m keen to read thanks to Ms. Thompson championing Ross Campbell’s work here on the blog. Campbell is good – trust me!

This might not be the final cover, but it's still a cool drawing!

An Elegy for Amanda Johnson on page 232 from Archaia sounds interesting. A woman dying of cancer asks two friends to take personal messages to people across the country, and so they do.

Meanwhile, Archaia also has a hardcover of Cyclops volume 1, which is odd as the first issue just came out, so they’re awfully ambitious. It seems like it will be a good series, and the creators are good, so maybe you’ll want to pick this up.

If you’re interested, Boom! Studios has Hellraiser #1 on page 253. It’s written by Clive Barker (who has a co-writer, to be fair) and drawn by Leonardo Manco, so it might be decent. I don’t have any interest, but what the heck.

Tarot, Witch of the Black Rose #67 (page 260): “The Skeleton Man, with the hammer of Thor in his hands, travels to the Black Rose Mansion only to find that Loki has taken over. Raven Hex, Tarot, and their mother are prisoners of the trickster god and are victims to his every whim. Meanwhile, alone in the cemetery, Crypt Chick faces the ruler of the underworld herself, ‘Hel.’ ”

Dynamite must do well with these endless spin-offs, because they have another one on page 266 with Warlord of Mars: Dejah Thoris #1. That’s fine and all, but it’s just weird. And hey – there’s a Greg Land sketch cover! Who knew Greg Land still knew how to sketch! Plus an Art Adams “risque” cover. Because you can’t have comics without “risque” covers!

This cover, of course, is totally NOT risque at all!

On page 275, Dynamite has Cornboy, a graphic novel about a dude who’s half boy/half corn. Yeah, I’m not sure what’s going on with it either, but it’s written (but not created) by Joshua Dysart, whose writing keeps getting better, so this might be worth a look.

The Comics Journal #301 is a bit spendy at thirty dollars, but it’s also over 600 pages of all sorts of comics criticism the like of which I could never hope to match. Fantagraphics has it on page 286, along with a resolicit of Safe Area Gorazde, which I hope comes out this time!

The strange history of Cowboys and Aliens (the trailer of which looks kind of cool, by the way) continues on page 293. Unless I’m wrong, the original idea was developed by someone who hired Fred van Lente to write the graphic novel, and there was much drama about it. Then it was made into a movie, as the original idea was a movie pitch anyway. Now, It Books has a graphic novel adaptation of the movie that appears to be different from the original graphic novel (van Lente certainly isn’t involved). This is, how shall I say this, weird.

Last year, Oni offered the entire first issue of The Sixth Gun on Free Comic Book Day, and this year they’re doing it again with Spontaneous #1 (page 300), the story of a boy searching for the truth about spontaneous human combustion. Joe Harris, who wrote Ghost Projekt, and Brett Weldele are on board as the creative team. IT’S FREE, PEOPLE!!!!!! Give it a look, won’t you?

People exploding inexplicably, people!

Pure Imagination Publishing has a goofy book on page 304 – Young Love, a selection of romance comics by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby. This can’t be as awesome as it sounds, can it?

Rebekah Isaacs does NOT draw Magus #4 on page 316 from 12-Gauge Comics. She has one of those Captain America one-shots from Marvel in this catalog, so perhaps she’ll be back, as I’m selfish and would rather see her drawing something independent and cool than yet another one-shot from Marvel (go read what the wonderfully vulgar Ms. Thompson had to say about Marvel’s covers this month). But we shall see. The first issue was well written as well as gorgeous to look at, so I’ll have to see if David Norton (the artist on issue #4) can come close to Isaacs’ work.
[EDIT: Jon Price, the writer of Magus, was nice enough to send me an e-mail telling me that Isaacs is indeed drawing issue #4 (and 5, to boot). It appears the solicitation information may have gotten screwed up. If you're buying it only for Isaacs' art - which isn't a bad reason, even though the story is pretty nifty - have no fear!]

I don’t often venture into the “Books & Magazines” section of Previews, because as weird as the comics section is, Previews only gets weirder the further you go into it. But this time, I skimmed it quickly, and I wish I hadn’t, because then I wouldn’t feel compelled to point out that on page 341 you can find The Big Book of Breasts … in THREE-DEEEEEEE!!!!!! Watch as breasts leap off the page right at you!!!! It comes with two pairs of 3-D glasses, so you can look at the book with your wife or girlfriend – won’t she think that’s a treat! You can, of course, get a slightly NSFW tour of the book here. You know you want to drop 40 bucks on this!!!!!

Travis Pelkie just had a heart attack!

And so we end with boobs. You knew it had to end that way, didn’t you? How could I top three-dimensional breasts?!?!?!? It’s a New Year, everyone – grab your Previews and start looking for great comics that will refresh you after the long 2010 slog!

I really love that “Lorna” cover by Darwyn,

On the flip side, how ugly are Hope’s ginormous man feet? Please cancel that book already.

P.S. thx for the “Night Force” reference. Great series.

Why you gotta be dissin’ my favorite comics, Greg Burgas? (You should buy Jimmy Olsen– it’s way cooler than you think it is.)

Man, even Tarot’s gettin’ on the Thor bandwagon. Geez.

So wait a minute. Joss Whedon, who has said in numerous interviews that Dollhouse wouldn’t translate well to comics, is doing a Dollhouse comic? How are they going to convey Eliza Dushku’s wooden, one dimensional acting to the printed page?

I don’t knopw if that’s the “risque” Dejah Thoris cover or not, because aren’t two covers listed by Adams? If it is, the irony there is she’s wearing more on that ‘risque’ cover than she is on all the other covers she’s appeared on so far…

Joss Whedon, who has said in numerous interviews that Dollhouse wouldn’t translate well to comics, is doing a Dollhouse comic?

Well, right now it’s just a one-shot about Felicia Day and the brother from Titus wandering the post-apocalypstic landscape as seen in Epitaph One and Two, which could totally make for a good comic. And Joss isn’t even writing it! Fanboy rage averted.

I like that last caption, “Travis Pelkie just had a heart attack!”. I can just see his jaw hitting the ground, completely at a loss for words. ;-)

I’m holding out for Kiss Kiss Bang Bang from CrossGen – Marvel-wise. If they want to make Mike Perkins happy after he finishes The Stand series, Marvel’d be smart to put him on that series.

As far as The Path and El Cazador goes, I’m sold if the original creative team is onboard (ie. Sears and Epting).

A Venom series? Why? Does anyone even like Venom anymore?

And Fantastic Four is getting re-booted? Again?

That Art Adams cover doesn’t look risque to me. By Barsoom standards that’s a burqa.

I just checked out that link. That breast book is by Dian Hanson. That explains a lot

Mary: Ah, but that’s NOT the risque cover! I was going to link to it but I couldn’t find it. From Previews, it appears the cover is the same except her breasts are bare.

Anonymous: Yeah, I noticed that about Ms. Hanson.

Gah!!!!

Boobies!!!!

You know what I like, man.

Happy fuckin’ new year to me!

I was happy enough with the Suicide Girls comic.

Ay yi yi.

I think the Generation Hope cover isn’t final due to coloring. Because that looks terribly washed out in shades of blue/green.

Mysterious Stranger

January 1, 2011 at 7:53 pm

I completely spaced the Epitaph “future” of Dollhouse. That could actually be good.

You are right, Phineas and Ferb IS awesome. But with FF coming out I can no longer refer to it as PhF (they sound exactly the same), oh well.

XOMBI!!! Seriously, Burgas, you and I tend to have pretty similar tastes in comics. You NEED this, man! I’m telling you… Rozum’s original Milestone series is criminally underrated.

Re: Felicia Day writing a Guild – books are written by people who didn’t create the characters & concepts therein all the time, and it’s not unusual for a creator taking on that responsibility to be used as a selling point (a Joss written issue of Buffy, Heinberg on Young Avengers, etc)

Re: “Can Cameron Stewart get you to buy this?!?!?” No. Why would he be able to? I can download his cover for this comic and/or look at pictures of all manner of nekkid girlies on the interwebs free gratis?

Jack Tripper?! Is today’s average comic book reader really THAT old?

It actually could be called Venom’s first ongoing series, as the 90′s version was a series of limited series and the early 2000′s series (the Whiteout knockoff) was turned in to a limited because of poor sales. But it is mostly just semantics.

Oh, and Vertigo is aping standard publishing (and for that matter DC’s Hardcover publishing schedule in general) by releasing the paperback approximately a year after the hardcover. I personally think 6 months would make more sense if they want the line to survive.

I thought Vertigo was dropping their original HCs, from something I read on bleeding cool. Did Rich lie to me? (more likely, I misread)

Ok, Diana doesn’t wax, she “clays”.

Xombi 1 by Rozum and Frazer Irving sounds awesome. I just picked up the zero issue from the original series, and it’s pretty interesting. Hopefully they’ll reprint that. And Rozum did Midnight Mass, and that book was awesome.

Ah, Suicide Girls the comic book. To quote the Bloodhound Gang, Hooray for Boobies. And tattoos. And piercings in obscene places. Ay yi yi.

And that Butcher Baker cover is OBVIOUSLY “for the ladies”. Aw yeah.

Is a Greg Land “sketch cover” a still from a porno? Yeah, I went there.

And don’t forget, the Fantastic Four IS having a big anniversary this year. 50 years! and next year Spidey is that old too! Oh my.

I always love this column, even if it does make me look like a boob obsessed cretin. Kelly must think so little of me…

Tom Fitzpatrick

January 2, 2011 at 12:18 pm

@ Travis Pelkie: We ALL think little of you. ;-)

I’m going to buy:

Batwoman # 1 (J. H. Williams III)

IDW:
Genius Isolated life and art of Alex Toth HC

Man, mention Tom’s internet crush Kelly and he has to strike at me with meanness. ;(

I’m gonna go cry now.

I certainly don’t mean to pick on Felicia Day, but the solicitation for The Guild: Tink one-shot (page 52) is weird. Above the cover, in bold print, we see “Written by Felicia Day!” Okay, it’s her creation, right? Who else would write this?

Maybe their scared of a Tekno Comics revival!

I know I was kinda pissed at age twelve to have brought a couple of books with Neil Gaimans name in big letters above the title, to read books that read nothing like Gaiman.

Then again, that was over a decade and a half ago now…

I mean, the big events over the past few years in the DCU all seem to come from the GL part of the U, which is odd as the Green Lanterns ought not to care all that much about the Earth, given that they’re supposed to be, you know, policing the known universe, which is kind of big.

Have they?
I can only really think of Blackest Night as coming from there.

People seem to count Sinestro Corps War as a big crossover, and it was awesome, but it only affected two titles.
I guess they could have a lot to do with Brightest Day, but I’m only reading three books with that Banner, and the GL’s have barely made an appearance.
(Of course, I guess I could be missing a whole lot that’s going on to do with BD that is in the GL books. But y’know, I’m still not even sure what Brightest Day is!)

I don’t really care which franchise gets to be the big dog at either company, I just find it interesting that 15 years ago, it was the X-Men and Superman (right?) and now the paradigm has shifted dramatically.

Build it up and knock it down!

That’s the big two’s motto!

Hey, look – it’s Justice League: Generations Lost #21-22 (page 72), and it certainly appears DC is killing off yet another ethnically diverse superhero! I really hope they do, because I always enjoy watching the Internet have a stroke.

That’s gotta be a fake out – he’s too good of a character, and too prominent in their other media for that to happen, right?
Also, I think Johns said on the CBR boat that there were plans for him.

That said, no one made a peep when they killed off Magog in that book an issue or two back!
(Or really commented on how incredibly racist the issue about Ice’s family was – it was every negative stereotype ever applied to Roma in one issue! They were literally a family of thieves, who handed down their thieving ways from generation to generation. Particularly bizarre coming from Winick – I thought he liked to smash stereotypes?)

While I don’t hate the idea of DC going back to $2.99 books (even with two fewer pages), it means that we don’t get the Francavilla back-up in Detective Comics (page 83), which kind of sucks.

I think Snyder said these will continue as one issue stories between the bigger arcs.

I didn’t know the premise of the Jimmy Olsen back-up feature (which is partially reprinted and concludes in a one-shot on page 93), but the fact that Jimmy is trying to prove to his ex-girlfriend that he can have as interesting a week as the subject of her feature doesn’t fill me with confidence. Really? That’s the premise? Yeesh.

WHA?

How is that not an awesome premise?

Sometimes I just don’t understand you Greg – I mean, were it a low budget independent film, that’s a boring plot.
But when it’s in a Jimmy Olsen book?
That’s Gold!

Just get this one, and read it – it’s awesome.

“The Skeleton Man, with the hammer of Thor in his hands, travels to the Black Rose Mansion only to find that Loki has taken over. Raven Hex, Tarot, and their mother are prisoners of the trickster god and are victims to his every whim. Meanwhile, alone in the cemetery, Crypt Chick faces the ruler of the underworld herself, ‘Hel.’ ”

You gotta wonder how Batman, Superman and JLA are getting porn ‘parodies’, but none of them have gone near this.
Don’t they know it’s empowering?

But this time, I skimmed it quickly, and I wish I hadn’t, because then I wouldn’t feel compelled to point out that on page 341 you can find The Big Book of Breasts … in THREE-DEEEEEEE!!!!!!

I once found a book of 50′s 3D porn, which I gave to a friend for a birthday.
I believe it was one of the Hollywood inventors/innovators of 3D, and when he wasn’t working in movies, he liked to take colour pics of nudes… in THREE-DEEEEE!

Man the back of previews is creepy.
I remember the one time I brought a Previews, when I was a much younger lad, and being utterly baffled by a Fumetti comic about the Invisible Man.
From what I could tell from the cover and description,, it was girls pretending to be raped (but kinda digging it*) by an Invisible Man on top of them.

*Which makes me think… maybe Alan Moore wrote it?

FGJ: I don’t like the premise of the Jimmy Olsen story simply because, as Jimmy himself points out in the latest issue of Action, he’s done some pretty wacky things. If he were a boring dude and thought he needed to impress Chloe, that’s one thing. But he can just let her discover the awesomeness of being Jimmy, and that should be enough for her. It seems silly for Jimmy to be so lacking in basic self-esteem when he’s done what he’s done.

It seems silly for Jimmy to be so lacking in basic self-esteem when he’s done what he’s done.

But that’s part of the fun!
In their world, with so much crazy stuff going on, he’s got to really up his game!
It’s the same as in All-Star Superman – Lucy was bored with Jimmy, because even though he was Supermans friend and about to go run a space ship, there are astronauts from Mars to date!

In this case, Chloe is his ex-girlfriend, and she’s left him because since Superman went walkabout, Jimmy has stopped adventuring and just sat around playing video games, so he’s trying to show her he’s still got it, even without his usual Superman safety net.
Earlier in this story, she came up with the plan to get rid of the party aliens invasion, so she seems to have plenty of awesomeness of her own – seems fair Jimmy should have to raise his game if he wants her.

So now the problem with the premise is taken care of, you gonna check it out?
At one point they read excerpts from ‘The Rains Of San Luis Obispo’, the novel Perry White has been writing for eighteen years!
