March '07 Previews Pop Culture Crossover

In this month's Previews - on sale in May:

Books

  • Journey to the Center of the Earth (Barrons Educational Series, One-Shot)
    The Jules Verne classic.
  • Marvel Illustrated: Last of the Mohicans #1 (Marvel, 6-part mini)
    I've had this James Fenimore Cooper book on my shelf since I was 12 but have never actually picked it up and read it.

TV

  • Buffy the Vampire Slayer Omnibus, Volume 1 (Dark Horse, TPB)
    320-page full-color giant, containing chronological Buffy stories, including a re-telling of the movie, and lead-ins to the first season.
  • Dark Xena #1 (Dynamite Entertainment, mini - I think)
    Four different covers; takes place after the show's finale.
  • Supernatural: Origins #1 (Wildstorm)
    Spin-off from the CW show. Is it any good? I never made it past the first episode. I can't tell if this is a one-shot or a mini.

Movies

  • Aliens Omnibus, Volume 1 (Dark Horse, TPB)
    Massive 384-page book featuring the first 3 Alien stories appearing in Dark Horse Comics.
  • Ray Harryhausen Presents: Wrath of the Titans #1 (Bluewater Productions, 4-part mini)
    Comic book sequel to Clash of the Titans!
  • The Hills Have Eyes: The Beginning (Fox Atomic Comics, One-Shot)
    Setting the stage for the 1977 movie (and its 2006 remake).
  • The Tripper (Image, One-Shot)
    The official comic of the movie. What movie? Why, David Arquette's writing and directorial debut that he's trying to get into theaters this summer. Duh.

Other

  • Dork Covenant: Dork Tower Vol 1 (Dork Storm Press, TPB)
    I only mention this because of the cool parody cover of the original Advanced Dungeons & Dragons Dungeon Master's Guide.
  • KISS 4K #1 (Platinum Studios, looks like a mini)
    Each KISS member carries a world-protecting warrior spirit within themselves. Also comes in 30" x 18" size ($50).

Wow ... Dark Horse certainly is pushing the Buffy, but why not? When I went to my local comic store five days after it came out, it had already sold out, so I've reserved a copy for the March 28 reprint

I think our local comic shop is lagging in business...I didn't pick mine up until a week later, and they still had some on the shelf!

Haven't had a second to sit down and read it, but I'm planning on it today.

Jim, I think Supernatural is an ongoing series, but it may be a mini. Either way I know it's not just a one-shot. I love the show, but don't know if I'll be getting the comic or not.

If you do, let me know how it is.
The show looked intriguing, but I had already reached my TV upper limit of shows this season and had to pass...
