November Previews Goodies

Previews is a 500+ page, monthly catalogue filled with mainly comics, but also toys, games, clothes, etc, that both retailers and customers can order from. Each issue lets you know what is coming out in 2 months’ time. The latest Previews has 3 goodies that are definitely worth ordering.

On page 279, there’s an OGN that I’ve been looking forward to for some time, and even moreso now, as I recently watched the documentary Marley, set in same era and location. Com.x are a unique publisher whose output is always bold, and worth paying attention to. Duppy ’78 is written by Casey Seijas with groovy art by Amancay Nahuelphan-Bustamante. Below is the official description, and new trailer.
Duppy ’78 – Three crime lords fight for control using black market guns, potent narcotics, and young mystics called “Obeahman.” These children possess the power to control the Duppy – malevolent spirits known throughout Rastafarian culture as a source of mischief and harm. When one of the crime lords is killed, the Jamaican capital is thrown into chaos as the remaining factions vie for control and race to find his now-orphaned Obeahman – rumored to be the most powerful of them all. A re-imagining of Jamaican and Rastafarian ghost stories, told in the context of a 1978 gangland drama.
Writer Bryan J.L. Glass of Mice Templar fame, (and also Thor, Superman, and many others) has a new 5 issue mini-series out from Dark Horse, with art by Victor Santos, his Mice Templar collaborator. Famous is described as, “where celebrity, fame and super-heroes meet.” Here’s the official lowdown, and it features on page 62 of Previews.
Staring into a fractured mirror of her life, the world’s first superhero, Furious, seeks to atone for her past sins by doling out rage-fueled justice! But the spotlight of our celebrity-obsessed media threatens to undo her noblest efforts and expose her true identity before she can achieve redemption.

Finally, on page 236 is a publisher I haven’t heard of before – Adventurist Corp. they have an OGN called Roll Hard, and it was Billy Tucci’s name that caught my eye. The creator of Shi, and very talented artist (see Sgt Rock: The Lost Battalion, or the A Child Is Born Christmas one-shot) is the writer, along with Robert Young Pelton, and artist, with Tom Novak. Below is the official description.
A team of misfit Blackwater contractors must run ‘RPG Alley’ every day. Kicked off the ‘Pretty Boy’ CIA and State Dept security details, the team, with the help of the insanely talented ‘Little Bird’ pilots struggle to stay alive on Baghdad’s mean streets. When a famous war correspondent decides to spend a month with them they rebel at first, but then slowly each man tells his dark story until the team is hit by a deadly IED on the most violent day for contractors in Iraq’s history.
