February '07 Previews Pop Culture Crossover

I intended to post this a couple weeks ago, but things just get in the way sometimes.

Here are some interesting one-shots, minis, graphic novels, TPBs, and series' beginnings listed in this month's Previews, on sale in April; you can find them listed under their particular publishers. Note: If I don't note the format, Previews doesn't show it. I have a feeling that means it's probably a mini-series - and they haven't commited to the length. But then I might be full of it.


  • Anita Blake Vampire Hunter: Guilty Pleasures Handbook (Marvel, One-Shot)
    I've always been curious about the novels, but haven't picked one up.
  • The Hedge Knight 2: The Sworn Sword #1 (Marvel, mini)
    Sequel to 2003's The Hedge Knight adaptation.
  • Jungle Book, Marvel Illustrated (Marvel, TPB)
    Not sure how it's collected, but it's a 64-page book collected from Marvel Fanfare #8-11.
  • Moby Dick, Barron's Graphic Classics (Barrons Eduacational Series, Inc., Graphic Novel)
    I'm not sure how they fit the story into a 48-page comic.
  • Starship Troopers: Ongoing #1 (Markosia, new ongoing)
    It'll probably be better than the movie adaptation.


  • Star Trek: Klingons: Blood Will Tell #1 (IDW)
    Written from a Klingon perspective. There's even a variant written only in Klingon (though it includes an English-language script).


  • Chucky #1 (Devil's Due, mini)
    The movies never interested me; but I guess it's all a matter of taste.


  • G.I. Joe Special Missions: Brazil (Devil's Due, One-Shot)
    Now you know...
  • Xombie #1 (Devil's Due, mini)
    This is different - it's based on an on-line cartoon (Xombie).


  • Warhammer: Forge of War #1 (Boom! Studios)
    Based on the tabletop miniature wargame.


  • Frank Frazetta's Death Dealer #1 (Image, mini)
    Based on the painting by Frazetta.

And in the "not worth the paper it's printed on" category, does a line of gimmicky, evil teddy bear toys need it's own comic (Teddy Scares, Volume 1, Ape Entertainment)?

Have I missed anything that you're planning on picking up?
