And That’s Not All….!!
This list doesn’t even touch all of the issue 2-1005's, Manga GN, new Hardcover Editions, Trade Paperbacks (collections of comic books in one bound edition), or Graphic Novels (complete original story not featured in a monthly) – not to mention all of the toys, statues, and apparel that come out every month! That would be several more of these articles, every month! I'm just going to stick to new comics for now. If you are interested in finding out about all of the rest (and get yours before they sell out!), just come on down to the shop for an in-depth look in the Previews book, or take one home for about $4 - which also gets you a free copy of Image+ (normally $2). While you are in for a visit, don’t forget to set up your subscription or pre-order. You can even pre-fill a form at home and drop it by. Stop by at least once a month to check out the new stuff and pick up your subscription…
