Sneak PREVIEWS: Look What’s in April’s Catalog


From the press release:

The April edition of Diamond Comic Distributors’ PREVIEWS catalog arrives in comic shops, hobby stores, and other direct market outlets on March 30 and features comic books, graphic novels, toys, and additional pop culture products scheduled to go on sale beginning June 2011.

The front cover of the April PREVIEWS is dedicated to DC Comics’ FLASHPOINT, showcasing many of DC’s major heroes that will be altered by the villainous Reverse Flash’s tampering with time.  The special event that started with writer Geoff Johns and artist Andy Kubert in FLASHPOINT #1 has spread throughout the universe and its effects are chronicled in FLASHPOINT: BATMAN – KNIGHT OF VENGEANCE #1, FLASHPOINT: EMPEROR AQUAMAN #1, FLASHPOINT: WONDER WOMAN AND THE FURIES #1 and many more, written and drawn by some of DC’s best and brightest creators. Comic book readers invested in the DC Universe should be eager to check out these tie-ins to the publisher’s FLASHPOINT event.

Similarly, Dark Horse’s Hellboy is no stranger to adventures with major consequences, but his latest story has been building for a long time. An epic clash of good and evil that might change Hellboy’s life forever reaches its climax in HELLBOY: THE FURY #1 (OF 3), spotlighted by the April PREVIEWS’ back cover. Writer Mike Mignola and artist Duncan Fegredo conclude the story begun in DARKNESS CALLS in 2007, and readers won’t want to miss it when Hellboy finally faces the Queen of Blood.
