October, spring, comics, the season of the good life.  Enough of the naff attempt at poetic ramblings, let’s just jet on into the goodies coming out for December as listed in this month’s October Previews!  I’ve covered a bit already in the previous highlights but there are a couple of other interesting things to keep your eye out for.

 CALIGULA:  A HEART OF ROME  A follow up to last year’s successful six issue mini-series from Avatar Press, this new six issue mini-series by David Lapham continues the story of the twisted ruler who was supposedly vanquished!  Not so it would appear as Laurentius takes up the struggle to end the supernatural threat to Rome.  Though this will not be a historical recount of Caligula, it could be a good yarn and as long as you aren’t easily offended by the usual Avatar hard edge story telling, this will be a good follow on from the first series.




JUDGE DREDD: THE GARTH ENNIS COLLECTION –  A great combo, Garth Ennis and Judge Dredd – perhaps a perfect pairing?  This is some of Ennis’ earlier works and will have the tell tale signs of great story-telling that matured into works such as Preacher, The Boys, The Punisher and much more.  This best of collection includes The Emerald Isle, supposedly Ennis’ take on the Irish justice system.  Great reading and a good staple in any comic collection.




THE CROW: SKINNING THE WOLVES: From IDW, James O’Barr returns to write and draw this all new Crow 3 part mini-series.  Set in 1940’s German war camp, this should make a harrowing backdrop for a Crow story.  The story centres around a game of chess that results in a new Crow.  If you like your stories from the creator of a character, here you go.





All these and the previous highlights (and more!) are ready to order now from the October Previews, just drop me a line with your order!
