Previews HYPE: November '11

Here are the highlights of books that I'm excited about, or think may get overlooked, in Previews Catologue for November...


The Sigh HC - Marjane Satrapi of Persepolis fame returns with a new graphic novel, published by Archaia.

Mudman #1 - A new superhero from Jack Staff's Paul Grist.

Guns and Dinos #1 (of 3) - A military base sent back in time.  It's Frank Cho drawing dinosaurs, guys.

Peanuts #0 - From Kaboom! comes new Peanuts comics!  This #0 launches a new monthly comic featuring the old gang.

New Avengers #18 - Norman Osborne's new team of Dark Avengers makes its debut!

Essential Sgt. Fury (Volume 1) TP - Finally, the noticeable gap in the Marvel Essential series is being collected.  Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, Dick Ayers, and a bunch of howling commandoes.

Fantastic Four #600 - Fantastic Four returns as an ongoing series in addition to FF, also boasting Jonathan Hickman as writer.

Northanger Abby #1 - They just keep rolling these out.  Not my favorite Jane Austen novel, but since I love Austen, I'm happy to see they're successful enough to keep adapting to graphic novels.  The cover to this one looks a little darker and less cutesy than previous Austen adaptations, which is appropriate for a story about a girl obsessed with Gothic literature and the mysteries of castles.

The Rocketeer Jetpack Treasury Edition - The first release in IDW's new line of retro treasury editions.  Also available this month, the anthology Rocketeer Adventures (Volume 1) HC, featuring the talent of artists like Mike Allred, John Cassaday, Darwyn Cooke, Ryan Sook, Mark Waid and Kurt Busiek.
 
Avengers Omnibus (Volume 1) HC - This was inevitable with next Summer's movie, collecting plenty of 60's Lee and Kirby (30 issues).

Hawkman by Geoff Johns Omnibus (Volume 1) HC - Also inevitable was this collection of superstar Geoff Johns' run on Hawkman.

House of Night #1 - A lot of the adaptations of young adult paranormal romances lately look pretty lame, especially the ugly Twlight graphic novels.  But this one looks like something I actually want to pick up.  P.C Cast and Kristin Cast's House of Night looks cool as a comic.

Walt & Skeezix (Volume 5): 1929-1930 HC - Skeezix is looking pretty old already!
 
X-Men: Age of Apocalypse HC - Want the entire Age of Apocalypse epic, including all of the little spin-off series, under one cover?  Well, here you go.

Brothers of the Spear Archives (Volume 1) HC - Russ Manning and Jesse Marsh illustrate this comic that I've never heard of from The Golden Age, a story by Gaylord DuBois.

T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents #1 - A lot of people like this DC series, which is restarting with a number one issue, like all of the DC Universe title.  Nick Spencer writes.
 
Elektra: Assassin HC - Back in print, in a deserving hardcover edition.

Batman: Through the Looking Glass HC - An original Batman graphic novel from Bruce Jones, with art by Sam Keith.

Amazing Mysteries: The Bill Everett Archives (Volume 1) HC - A nice companion to Fantagraphics' Fire and Water, edited by Blake Bell.

Naughty and Nice: The Good Girl Art of Bruce Timm - A nice art book showcasing the talent of Bruce Timm.
 
Uncanny X-Men #1 - The X-Men title relaunches this month in wake of Schism.

Spirit World HC - Collecting hard-to-find content from Spirit World magazine, which Jack Kirby worked on, along with names like Sergio Aragones and Mark Evanier.
 
Spider-Man: Marvel Team-Up by Claremont & Byrne TP - From the Marvel Team-Up series, comes this collection of John Byrne comics, written by Chris Claremont and Ralph Macchio.

Chuck Jones: The Dream That Never Was HC - A little-known comic strip from legendary animator Chuck Jones.

Mr. Twee Deedle: Raggedy Ann's Sprightly Cousin - The Forgotten Fantasy Masterpieces of Johnny Gruelle HC - Another rediscovered masterpiece, this one contains an introduction by Tony Millionaire.

Shaky Kane's Monster Truck - It's Shaky Kane craziness.

The Extraordinary Adeventures of Adele Blanc-Sec (Volume 2): The Mad Scientist/Mummies on Parade HC - Finally, a second volume of the Jacques Tardi series is being released!
 
Six Guns #1 - Classic Marvel Western characters team up and get a modern makeover in this new title.
