March 2008 Previews Pop Culture Crossover

Comics coming in May - highlights of movies, stories, and other odds and ends adapted to comics in the March Previews. More stuff from classic artists (Harryhausen and Frazetta), some new and interesting stuff, and some comics related to some awesome movies (including great sequels this year).

  • Igor Movie Prequel #1 (series or mini, IDW )
    Prequel (obviously) to the animated film Igor due out in October. Star-filled cast, including Steve Buscemi, John Cusack, and John Cleese.
  • Indiana Jones Adventures, Vol. 1 (pocket book, Dark Horse)
    Indiana Jones story written for kids (according to Previews).
  • Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull #1 and 2 (2-part mini, Dark Horse)
    Adaptation of the upcoming film. With all these awesome sequels, I need to have an 80s movies weekend and rent Raiders of the Lost Ark, and...
  • Lost Boys: Reign of the Frogs #1 (4-part mini, Wildstorm)
    Rather than an adaptation, this fills the gap between the original The Lost Boys and the upcoming The Lost Boys: The Tribe.
  • The Man with No Name #1 (new series, Dynamite Entertainment)
    Clint Eastwood's Man with No Name immortalized in comic form. I still need to see these films...
  • Ray Harryhausen Presents 20 Million Miles More (Graphic Novel, Bluewater Productions)
    Sequel to the 1957 film, 20 Million Miles To Earth.
  • Tron Vol. 1: The Ghost in the Machine (TPB, Amaze Ink / Slave Labor Graphics)
    Sequel to the original film, taking place in the present day; collects the 6-issue series.


  • Dean Koontz's Frankenstein: Prodigal Son #1 (5-part mini, Dabel Brothers)
    Book One in Koontz's trilogy. Adapted by Chuck Dixon.
  • Hercules #1 (5-part mini, Radical Comics)
    The Greek myth revisited.
  • In Odd We Trust (graphic novel, Del Rey)
    Prequel to Koontz's Koontz's Odd novels.
  • The Worlds of H.P. Lovecraft (TPB, Transfuzion Publishing)
    Collection of the full-length adaptations originally published by Malibu.
  • Bionicle Volume 1 (TPB, Papercutz)
    Based on the toys - collects comics that were available to fan club members.
  • Frank Frazetta's Swamp Demon (one-shot, Image)
    Another comic based on a Frazetta painting.

Anything else you're getting? Did I miss anything good?
