Previews Picks

Postby thefourthman » Mon Jul 28, 2008 3:27 pm

Did you know that I write a column for BF called Previews Picks, where once a month I go throught the Previews catalog and highlight the things I think look cool?

I focus mostly on the independent books because Image, Dark Horse, DC, and Marvel do a really good job of pimping their own product, but some of the super cool stuff in the independent section can get lost in the shuffle.

Anyhow here is the link to the most recent article:

PREVIEWS PICKS (JULY FOR SEPTEMBER)

Unfortunately I ran right to the wire this month, but if you hurry, you can get your additions to your shop before they transmit (HOPEFULLY) and if not they can always put in an order request.

Interesting. I like the indie thing.

edit: the fact that you focus more on indie books = "the indie thing". I am feeling lazy.

cause typing all of that was easier than "I like that you focus more on indie books"

I typed it, then I looked at it, submitted it, then I said "no, that doesn't work." That's why I went back and did the edit.

It's a good way to keep people informed as to what's going on with the independents since most comic sites spend way too much energy covering Marvel and DC.

I was just being a dick. I'm a comic shop guy, it is what we do.

Yeah, my editor asked me to do it and then when I submitted the first one, he was like I like how you focused on the smaller books and I was like well that's the only reason to do it. The Marvel and DC people already know what they are going to get and the Image and Dark Horse people, while more likely to read it, are basically told what to get too.

I'm getting the Joker HC and Back to Brooklyn #1. I almost pre-ordered the Samurai title, but for whatever reason I didn't pull the trigger. I'll wait and flip through it at the LCS before jumping in...
