A Sneak Peek Look Inside the June 2010 Issue of Diamond’s ‘Previews Magazine’


From the press release:

PREVIEWS Next: June Issue Spotlights DC’s Superman: Earth One Hardcover and Image’s Guardians of the Globe #1

New issue arrives in comic shops May 26 and features products on sale beginning August 2010

(BALTIMORE, MD)(May 12, 2010) — Many writers have offered their own take on the classic origin of Superman. The scribe entrusted with DC Comics’ ongoing Superman, Wonder Woman, and Brave and the Bold series, J. Michael Straczynski now teams with superstar artist Shane Davis to tell The Man of Steel’s origin story as never before with DC’s SUPERMAN: EARTH ONE HARDCOVER, spotlighted as the front cover of June’s PREVIEWS, the comic shops’ catalog.

The 136-page Superman: Earth One launches a whole new line of original, stand-alone graphic novels from DC Comics, which will modernize and re-imagine the stories of the publisher’s most iconic characters. Set in an all-new continuity entirely different from DC’s ongoing comics, Superman: Earth One is thus a book that should appeal to anyone interested in Superman, regardless of whether or not they’ve followed comics recently.

June PREVIEWS’ back cover features Image Comics’ GUARDIANS OF THE GLOBE #1, the start of a six-part series spinning out of the publisher’s best-selling Invincible comic book. Fan-favorite writer Robert Kirkman (Invincible, The Walking Dead) is joined by fellow wordsmith Benito Cereno and artist Ransom Getty for this new title, which finds the ranks of the all-important Guardians of the Globe depleted. With the Viltrumite War raging on in the pages of Invincible, it’s essential that new recruits be found and readied to save the world.
