Previews Highlights: July 2015

I've scoured Previews Catalogue for the best of what the upcoming month has in store for comic shops.  Here's what's happening in July...

Five Hidden Gems

1. Frank Frazetta's The Adventures of the Snow Man HC - The first time in print, this is the first full story from the legendary artist.

2. The Divine GN - From First Second Books, this is a neat-looking fantasy.

3. Siege #1 - A title starring Agent Brand, written by Kieron Gillen, who wrote the hell out of the character in S.W.O.R.D.

4. Captain Britain and the Mighty Defenders #1 - Captain Britain and friends drawn by Alan Davis.  At least, I think Captain Britain is in it?

5. The Spire #1 (of 8) - A very pretty fantasy from Simon Spurrier and Jeff Stokely.

Four Collected Editions

1. Oyster War - The Eisner-nominated comic from Ben Towle is finally collected in print.

2. Black Panther by Christopher Priest: The Complete Collection (Volume 1) TP - With a movie on the horizon, Marvel's beginning to put out some books for people to dig into.

3. Free Country: A Tale of the Children's Crusade HC - Neil Gaiman's mini-series is collected, with a new chapter.

4. Supreme: Blue Rose TP - This Warren Ellis title was kind of under the radar.  Here's a chance to see what you've been missing.

Three Can't Miss Books

1. Godzilla In Hell #1 (of 5) - James Stokoe envisions Godzilla stomping around Hell.  Why would people not buy this?

2. Star Trek/Green Lantern #1 (of 6) - This could be a fun mini-series. 

3. Island #1 - A new Brandon Graham and Emma Rios ongoing in an oversized format.

Two Under the Radar

1. Bloodstrike #1 - Rob Liefeld brings a new brutal ongoing series to life at Image Comics.

2. The Art of Mouse Guard 2005-2015 HC - This is going to be a beautiful-ass book.

One Random Item of the Month

1. DC Comics Justice League Tarot Card - Because who doesn't want their future revealed by Harley Quinn and a Blue Lantern?
