September 2007 Previews Pop Culture Crossover

Better late than never! Well, if I was late in August; I'm really late this month. Of course, when your Local Comic Shop (LCS) doesn't save you a Previews like you asked, and you can't seem to find one anywhere, it's hard to look over the whole catalog...finally, Hit Video in Huntsville gave me their old desk copy. I told him I wanted it for my comic blog, but he didn't really seem to be interested. But it was pretty cool for them to just give me their old copy.

So here I am, writing the September Previews crossover. I didn't want to mess up my run so far, so here's last month's list of other-media trades, new series and graphic novels for last month's Previews.


(Maybe I'll follow up next week with October's.)

TV

  • Buffy the Vampire Slayer Omnibus, vol 3 (TPB, Dark Horse)
    Since I got turned on to Buffy so late, it'll be nice to have all the early comics collected into just a few volumes.
  • Heroes (Hardcover, DC/Wildstorm)
    The collected on-line comics find print - all 34 chapters from season one.
  • Tek Jansen #1 (offered again, Oni Press)
    Yes - Stephen Colbert's fake adaptation from his "unpublished novel." Is the comic so bad they couldn't get rid of the entire run the first time around?

Movies

  • Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash (6-part mini, DC/Wildstorm / Dynamite)
    It's a movie monster smorgasborg. Nightmare on Elm Street meets Friday the 13th meets Evil Dead. Good grief.
  • God Loves, Man Kills ("Premier" Hardcover, Marvel)
    Hardcover release of the series that X2: X-Men United was partially based on.
  • Highlander: Way of the Sword #1 (mini, Dynamite Entertainment)
    So, are the comics as good as the first movie, or as bad as the second? (The third doesn't even count.)
  • Wanted (Top Cow, Graphic Novel)
    Re-release of another comics-to-film project - this one starring Angelina Jolie and Morgan Freeman. Due out March of next year.

Books/Stories

  • Dark Tower: The Gunslinger Born ("Premier" Hardcover, Marvel)
    The collected edition of Peter David and Robin Furth's comic adaptation Stephen King's Dark Tower series. Rumor has it, there's more to come.
  • Dracula vs. King Arthur (TPB, Silent Devil)
    Interesting idea...
  • The Picture of Dorian Gray (6-issue mini, Marvel)
    The price of immortality. Marvel Illustrated's take on the classic book.
  • The Wind in the Willows - Classics Illustrated Deluxe Volume 1 (Graphic Novel, Papercutz)
    Adaptation of the classic book - if it's done well, this could be a pretty cool addition to any comic collection.

Animation

  • Red Lotus: Mark of the Warrior (One-shot, Arcana Studios)
    From an animated series on Spike (this past summer). I completely missed it - was it any good?

Games

  • World of Warcraft #1 (new series, DC/Wildstorm)
    New ongoing series based on the on-line fantasy game.

Other

  • Shifter #1/2 (prelude to a 4-part mini, Fangoria)
    Not really a crossover, but it's Michael Madsen starring in a comic book.

Anything else worth mentioning that's coming out in November?
