Previews: November '08 Comics

Here are the highlights from Previews Catalogue for comic books and graphic novels shipping to comics shops in November!
Avatar Press Inc

Freakangels (Volume 1) TP - A collection of Warren Ellis and Paul Duffield's popular webcomic!

Cartoon Books

RASL (Volume 1): The Drift TP - The first of three graphic novels collecting Jeff Smith's new series about a dimension-hopping art thief!

Checker Book Publishing Group

Ruse Omnibus (Volume 1) TP - I love these formats for Crossgen's high-quality genre works. Ruse was one of their best!

Dark Horse

Umbrella Academy: Dallas #1 (of 6) - The follow-up to the hit mini-series by Gerard Way and Gabriel Ba!

DC Comics

DC Comics Classics Library: Superman - Krypton Nevermore! - I like the idea of a classics line like this. This collection reprints a classic superhero story from 1971, and kicks off the line.

Guardian of Metropolis Special #1 - Not the same Guardian from Morrison's excellent Seven Soldiers, but it's nice to see that uniform again. I guess this spins out of the recent Jimmy Olsen Special.

The Sandman: The Dream Hunters #1 - This comic adaptation of Neil Gaiman's prose story marks the twentieth anniversary of the ground-breaking Sandman series. Adapted and illustrated by P. Craig Russell.

Terra #1-2 - Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti can be hit or miss for me, but when they're on, they're on. This is a new series with a new Terra.

The X-Files #1 - Probably not the best franchise to have purchased recently, with the movie's flailing, but this could make for a fun, moody comic series.

Drawn & Quarterly

Or Else #5 - The latest issue of Kevin Huizenga's acclaimed comic series!

IDW Publishing

The Dreamer #1 - A new series about a young woman having visions about a man from The Revolutionary War - looks like pirates are involved.

John Byrne's Compleat Next Men (Volume 2) TP - Another volume of John Byrne's classic comic series!!!

Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Last Generation #1- The end of Starfleet...well, maybe. I like the cover of this that parodies X-Men: Days of Future Past (Pulaski: slain!)

Image Comics

Bruce: The Little Blue Spruce HC - A new all-ages title from Image's new Shadowline imprint, by Kristen Simon, Jim Valentino and Avery Butterworth.

Liquid City GN - A new anthology featuring the work of creators from Southeast Asia, who offer their visions of city-life for its pages.

Marvel Comics

Astonishing X-Men (Volume 2) HC - A nice hardcover collection finishing off Joss Whedon and John Cassaday's fantastic run on the X-Men title.

Invincible Iron Man (Volume 1): The Five Nightmares Premiere HC - I've been digging some other Matt Fraction-helmed titles, so I'm looking forward to picking up the collection of this book. Art by Salvador Larroca.

Secret Invasion #8 (of 8) - The end of Marvel's big '08 crossover event!

Ultimatum #1 & 2 (of 5) - Big Ultimate Universe crossover event that will "change things" forever.

Top Shelf Productions

American Elf (Volume 3) - Yay! Another collection of James Kochalka's online strips!!

Viz Media

Naoki Urasawa's Monster (Volume 18) - The very last volume of the acclaimed thriller is finally here!
