Previews HYPE: July '12

Here are the books that caught my eye in Previews Catalogue, for books shipping to comic shops in July...


Captain Marvel #1 - I looooved the last ongoing series featuring Ms. Marvel, so I'm excited to see Carol Danvers getting a new series as she steps into her new role.

Cursed Pirate Girl HC - My favorite graphic novel of last year gets the hardcover treatment with extra goodies, courtesy of Archaia.  This is a gorgeous book and stunning fantasy - comes with my highest recommendation!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Adventures (Volume 1) - The Archie comics series begins to be collected by IDW in this series of books (following the recent 100-page spectacular) featuring the beloved stories based around the animated series.

Space Punisher #1 (of 4) - This has got to be fun, right?

National Comics: Eternity #1 - This stand-alone issue sees Jeff Lemire, who's doing awesome things at DC currently, take a stab at writing Kid Eternity.

American Elf (Volume 4): The Collected Sketchbook Diaries of James Kochalka (2008-2011) TP - I love these slice-of-life comics. The only webcomic I follow religiously.

Artist's Editions - IDW is releasing two artist editions this month: Bernie Wrightson's The Muck Monster and Neal Adams' Thrill Kill.

Cow Boy: A Boy & His Horse HC - For those who caught the preview in the Free Comic Book Day Arcahaia sampler, here's the full graphic novel featuring the little cowboy.

Debris #1 (of 4) - In a postapocalyptic world, a young woman will face the monsters that rise from the garbage covering the Earth, in a quest for fresh water.  Nice preview art.

Cardboard GN - More garbage! This one is an all-ages comics from Doug TenNapel (Ghostopolis), about cardboard creatures coming to life.

X-Treme X-Men #1 - I'm not familiar with the alternate versions of these characters (Emmeline Frost, Kid Nightcrawler and Captain Howlett), but I usually enjoy the X-work of Greg Pak.

The Creativity of Steve Ditko HC - A companion to the previously-released The Art of Ditko, from IDW's Yoe Books! imprint.  Lots of unpublished gems.

The Golden Twine (Volume 1): Cat's Cradle GN - This just looks like a pretty little fantasy book, about an orphan girl who tames a monster.

The Hypernaturals #1 - Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning write a new team of galaxy-class superheroes.

Sakuran (Volume 1) - A new manga series about a courtesan who dresses like a geisha, from the red-light distrct in Tokyo, from fashion critic and comic artist Moyoco Anno.

The Song of Roland HC - From the "Tintin of Quebec," the French version of this graphic novel won tons of awards.

He-Man and the Masters of the Universe #1 (of 6) - I can't say I'm really excited to see this, but I was a fan of the cartoon growing up!

The Walking Dead #100 - It's been going for that long already, huh?

Powers: FBI #1 - Deena Pilgrim joins the FBI in a new chapter of Bendis' creator-owned work.

Scott Pilgrim Color (Volume 1): Precious Little Life HC - Kicking off a new presentation of the Scott Pilgrim graphic novels in hardcover editions and in color.
