I love Must Lists and at the beginning of every month I like to consider what my own personal must lists will consist of. What comic books will I be reading? What collectibles will I be purchasing? Diamond’s PREVIEWS catalog has become a bible of sorts for me and an indispensable guide for servicing my interests.
The March PREVIEWS catalog will be available in comic book shops February 25th and I know I’ll definitely be picking up a copy. Especially after the showing at NY Toy Fair, I know there are so many great collectibles coming your way. I highly suggest that you ask for a March PREVIEWS catalog at your comic shop.
March celebrates “Women in Comics” month and “celebrates the many women who work within the comics industry and community”such as Kathryn Immonen, Meredith Finch, and Marguerite Bennett to name a few. Most exciting for us as What’cha Reading is Indie Edge – PREVIEWS interview with Joelle Jones (Hellheim, Bride of Hellheim, and Lady Killer.) She’s a fantastic artist and writer and one we are very proud to see in the spotlight. If you’re not familiar with Joelle Jones we suggest you read our reviews of Hellheim and Lady Killer.
