Super-Fly November Previews Digest

Each Month Diamond Comics puts out their catalog of comics & items shipping in the next two months (and sometimes beyond).

Each month we go through and highlight the new and important stuff shipping that month, be it a new series, a new original graphic novel, an important creative team change or a new direction. We’ve got you covered! If you’re interested in the full Previews Experience, remember we do offer Previews free to all of our Subscription customers that would like it.

Comics & Items Shipping October 27th

It may be Halloween weekend, but the treat we’re looking forward to is Mid Ohio Con on November 6th & 7th. You’ll be able to find us at the show at booth 516, and we’ll have plenty of good deals for you. Speaking of deals, let’s check out this week’s comics.

The big ticket item of the week is the SUPERMAN: EARTH ONE hardcover, which re-imagines Superman’s origin in present day in one big graphic novel. This week JT Krul takes the reigns on TEEN TITANS, Brubaker & Philips’ INCOGNITO returns, the SECRET AVENGERS track down legally non-actionable Fu Manchu, the AVENGERS end their battle against Ultron in the future and Jill Thompson teams HELLBOY AND THE BEASTS OF BURDEN.

Comics & Items Shipping October 20th

Last week was a pretty big week for comics (especially for those with a “Bat” in the title), but this week is big as well. Not just for comics, but we’ve got the Twilight Star Studios One-Year Anniversary Party here this Saturday. From 3p to 7p we’ll have the gang from the Springfield-based studio. Check out the link for the full list of the days attendees and events and prepare to have your mind blown because it’s going to be pretty damn epic.

Now let’s check out the pretty damn epic comics coming out this week. The third issue of the blockbuster new Image series MORNING GLORIES hits shelves, as well as the 4th (and final!) printings of the 1st issue. Trust me, this is a series you want to get in on the ground floor of. Stan Lee’s SOLDIER ZERO kicks off at Boom! studios, CARNAGE makes his 90’s-tastic return to the Marvel U, BATMAN AND ROBIN returns to finish up the “Batman and Robin Must Die” (and yes, they’re bringing two more BRUCE WAYNE: THE ROAD HOME specials with them), and last but not least THE SIXTH GUN, my other favorite new comic of the year comes out. Remember kids: it’s quality, not quantity!

Fallout: New Vegas in stores tomorrow!

Part of Super-Fly Comics and Games is the games. And tomorrow, One of the biggest games of the year, Fallout: New Vegas, will be released for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. And it’s looking like it’s going to be as good, if not better, than Fallout 3. And we wouldn’t be telling you this with some good news. We’ll have copies for both systems in store on release day. i would suggest that you pick that up. Preferably from us, if you are in the area. If you are not familiar with New Vegas, check out Obsidian Entertainment’s website. Oh, and be prepared to not sleep for a few days.

Comics & Items Shipping October 13

There’s a wide spread of things this week, including a whole range of the Batman mishegoss, including THE RETURN OF BRUCE WAYNE, where Bruce is trapped in the 50s, and then 4 BRUCE WAYNE: THE ROAD HOME specials (Batgirl, Batman & Robin, Red Robin, Outsiders) where Bruce may or may not be back in the good ol 21st century. Either way, that’s a lot of Batman. Also this week there’s the new Mark Millar joint, SUPERIOR; Matt Murdock’s latest crazy town good time in SHADOWLAND, the HACK/SLASH: MURDER MESSIAH annual, SPIKE gets his own miniseries from IDW (before he jumps ship over to Dark Horse & helps Buffy in Season 8), the heretofore untold tale of Khan Noonian Singh & his outcasts on Ceti Alpha VI comes to light in STAR TREK: KHAN RULING IN HELL and there’s a new VICTORIAN UNDEAD SPECIAL

Comics & Items Shipping Wednesday, October 6th

Don’t forget that THIS SATURDAY is the Yellow Springs Street Fair AND the next Super-Fly Live Art Show. Street Fair is from 9am to 5pm, and the Live Art Show is from Noon until 5pm. We’ll be open from 9am until 8pm, and all day we’ll be doing 50% off ALL of our back issue comics, PLUS for every $25 you spend, you’ll get a $5 Super-Fly gift card. As an added bonus, it looks like we’re actually going to have GOOD WEATHER for Street Fair this year. I know, I probably just jinxed it and Cobra Commander is going to crank up the weather dominator and make me pay for my assumption, but I’m still hopefull. Come on, 70s and sunny!

This week there’s a whole bunch of cool stuff waiting for you. Wolverine reactivates the UNCANNY X-FORCE, now with 100% more superfluous Deadpool; the first issue of Metalocalypse’s DETHKLOK miniseries hits with the force of 1,000 face-shattering axes; Hercules returns to save the Marvel Pantheon of deities in CHAOS WAR; David Lapham & Kyle Baker’s DEADPOOLMAX promises to be a new Deadpool title that actually shows us something new (and from the two of them it’s going to be messed up); the Norse bad-asses Ultimate origin gets revealed in ULTIMATE THOR; WOLVERINE continues his journey through Hell and the SECRET SIX continue their conquest of Skartaris (Bane rides a dinosaur, your argument is invalid.)

Do you love the Super-Fly Podcast? Now’s your chance to show it!

For the past 20 weeks we’ve brought you some of the best in comic book podcasting entertainment. What’s that? You haven’t been listening to the Super-Fly Comics & Games podcast? Shame on you! Well, we’re a forgiving lot, so we’re going to let that slide, but under one condition: you go check out our most recent episode post-haste! I will, however, take this opportunity to tell you that the Super-Fly podcast, as with all podcasts on the Panels on Pages PoP Cast network are labeled “explicit” by iTunes. It’s all in good fun, though. Since we’re part of the PoP Cast network, we all though it’d be a good time to see which show on the network can get the most downloads & the most positive reviews on iTunes so they can have, well…bragging rights? Those are important, right? You can subscribe to the entire PoP Cast network via iTunes and get our show every Tuesday, the main Panels on Pages PoP Cast every Wednesday and the Princess Cast (which looks at geek culture from a female point of view) every Thursday. Plus, if you miss any of the PCN shows, every Monday Last Week in PoP boils together the best (and worst) stuff from the three network shows. A full list of the network shows (including us!) can be found here.

However! As great as all that is, don’t forget your Super-Fly loyalty! If you want to continue to get the best & funniest in comic book and gaming infotainment, log into your iTunes, subscribe to the Panels on Pages network, download episode 20 of our show (one of our finest moments, if I do say so myself) and then leave a 5 star review mentioning how the Super-Fly podcast changed your life (life changing not guaranteed). Still not convinced? Well, check this out…
