Hello, comic fans! I know I say this every month, but there really is a ton of new series being offered in this month’s Previews catalog. No kidding, it’s more than usual. DC alone has NINE new series starting–and that doesn’t count the TEN ongoing 100-Page Giant series starting…or the SIX one-shots! Marvel’s X-title relaunch starts this month with THREE new ongoing series. Add our DAWN OF X tag to your My Interests list, to track the new stuff. There’s STAR WARS stuff timed to lead the movie later this year. I’d be here all day if I tried to list all the new stuff. Go ahead, see all of the brand new series for this month here… but be warned, you’re eyeballs may implode. As always, let us know if we can search our stacks for something…we try to cater to regular, normal newbies…crazy, intense collectors…and everyone in between (except for Homelander…that dude’s way too good to be true). –Glenn

FIRST IMPRESSIONS FOR AUGUST 2019
JOURNEY TO STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER–ALLEGIANCE #1
[mind melts in anticipation]
“BEFORE THE EXCITING EVENTS OF STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER. Hounded by the FIRST ORDER across the galaxy, the RESISTANCE is in dire need of ships, weapons and recruits to make a final stand against KYLO REN’S forces. Desperation drives a delegation led by GENERAL LEIA ORGANA and REY to entreat the Rebel veteran’s one-time allies, THE MON CALAMARI, to join the fight – but decades after Imperial occupation enslaved their planet, there are those willing to stop at nothing to prevent another war from bloodying the waters of Mon Cala. A system away, POE DAMERON and FINN have their own mission: to hunt down a weapons cache on the remote moon of Avedot, unaware that they are being hunted by the most notorious criminal gang in the galaxy.”
ROBOTECH REMIX #1
Titan’s re-imagining of Robotech begins a new saga! Awesome!!
“Robotech is reborn from the ashes of Event Horizon. New writer Brenden Fletcher (Motorcrush, Isola) and artist Elmer Damaso (Robotech/Voltron, Marvel Mangaverse) boot up Robotech: Remix, an all-new series that will take beloved characters and iconic mecha to places fans have never seen before.”
AMAZING MARY JANE #1
This is so very cool. If any one of Peter’s girls could carry their own title, this redhead has got what it takes!
“SPINNING RIGHT OUT OF THE PAGES OF AMAZING SPIDER-MAN. ‘YOU JUST HIT THE JACKPOT.’ ALL-NEW ONGOING SERIES. The web-head’s favorite redhead (and yours.) is taking a chance on her dreams. But if you’ve read ASM #25, you’ll know MYSTERIO is behind Mary Jane’s big shot, and someone worse is behind him. What’s real and what’s illusion, what’s illusion and what’s Hollywood phoniness? This fall, Leah Williams (AGE OF X-MEN: EXTREMISTS; GIANT MAN) and Carlos Gomez (UNCANNY X-MEN ANNUAL, Red Sonja) bring you all this intrigue plus more action, glamor, grit, and – we’ll say it – sass than anyone’s previously dared fit in five fabulous issues. Face it: you don’t wanna miss this.”
