Previews Highlights: September 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 September...

Comic Books

Captain America: White #1
Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale

The latest in the creators' Color series for Marvel.

Power Cubed #1 (of 4)
Aaron Lopresti

A new mini-series from Aaron Lopresti, whom I've enjoyed since his Crossgen days.  This book's about a teenager who can create anything he wants by thinking it, with the help of an impossible piece of technology.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #50
Tom Waltz, Kevin Eastman and Mateus Santolouco

The turtles vs. Shredder in a battle that decides the fate of New York.

Plutona #1 (of 4)
Jeff Lemire and Emi Lenox

Five kids make the shocking discovery of the world's greatest superhero...dead in the woods.  Great looking art by Lenox, in the capable storytelling hands of Lemire.

Head Lopper #1
Andrew MacLean

An oddball comic with an indie feel from the creator of ApocalyptiGirl.

Aliens/Vampirella #1 (of 6)
Corinna Bechko and Javier Garcia-Miranda

So ridiculous it might work.

Graphic Novels

Sacred Heart GN
Liz Suburbia

A punk-infused coming-of-age graphic novel, courtesy of Fantagraphics.

Collected Editions

S.H.I.E.L.D. by Lee and Kirby: The Complete Collection TP

Lots of S.H.I.E.L.D. stuff coming out this month to celebrate their 50th anniversary!

Batman: The Golden Age Omnibus HC
Bill Finger, Gardner Fox, Bob Kane, Jerry Robinson and various

What a great excuse to get the first issues of Batman.

The Goon Library (Volume 1) HC
Eric Powell

Eric Powell's beloved comic gets the deluxe hardcover treatment in this new collection series.

Birds of Prey (Volume 1) TP
Chuck Dixon, Jordan Gorfinkel, Gary Frank, Dick Giordano, Greg Land and various

I love these first issues of Birds of Prey.  Hopefully with this coming back into print, DC plans to collect more than just two volumes this time around.

Sandman: The Overture Deluxe Edition HC
Neil Gaiman and J.H. Williams III

The brand-new Sandman story is collected.

Jim DeMatteis, Steve Leialoha and Mark Badger

Marvel is releasing several horror collections, including this obscure title, Monster of Frankenstein and Steve Gerber's Man-Thing, just before October.

Wolf Moon TP
Culleen Bunn and Jeremy Manco

This is another good one to go into October with, with a cool premise.  Hunting down a werewolf, when a different person becomes the beast under each full moon.

Walt Kelly's Fairytales HC
Walt Kelly

The creator of Pogo was also an animator for Disney films such as Snow White and Pinocchio, so of course he did some fairy tale comics!  This is an all-ages collection of some sure-to-be-amazing comics.

Descender (Volume 1): Tin Stars TP
Jeff Lemire and Dustin Nguyen

The first collection of the excellent science fiction series.

Wild's End (Volume 1): First Light
Dan Abnett and I.N.J. Culbard

Dan Abnett of Guardians of the Galaxy fame pens a story about animals in a small town that is invaded by aliens.

Dennis the Menace: The Classic Comic Books (Volume 1) HC
Fred Toole, Owen Fitzgerald and Al Wiseman

These popular comics are being collected by Papercutz.


Yo-kai Watch (Volume 1)
Noriyuki Konishi

A big sensation in Japan, this is a cute manga haunted by Japanese supernatural creatures.

Final Fantasy Type-O (Volume 1)

I can't believe that I haven't seen a Final Fantasy manga before this.

Miscellaneous Items
