Welcome to The PREVIEWS Party Podcast! Covering the May 2013 issue of PREVIEWS magazine from Diamond Comic Distributors, Inc., Fanboy Comics’ panel examines the upcoming comics, graphic novels, and other merchandise that will be available in stores nationwide and explains the importance of pre-ordering and its effect on the comic book industry as a whole.
Are you unfamiliar with PREVIEWS or the pre-order process used by comic book stores? Please see our helpful guide below to better understand what PREVIEWS is and how it can best be used to find the comics, graphic novels, and merchandise that will be on sale in the comic months.
In this month’s episode, we chat with Diamond Comic Distributor’s Webmaster, Vince Brusio, about this summer’s biggest film adaptations and the comic books on which they are based, the importance of the Eisner Awards, and some of his favorite books in the month’s PREVIEWS catalog. We are also joined by Jud Meyers, the Eisner Award winning owner of Blastoff Comics, the vintage comic book boutique in North Hollywood, CA. The Fanboy Comics panel breaks down the exciting releases (scheduled to hit stores in July) from a variety of publishers and manufacturers, including Marvel, DC, Dark Horse, IDW, Image, Archaia, DC Collectibles, NECA, and more!
