Drunk on Comics Podcast 210: Previews
Linz, Derek and Tony didn’t review a comic book, but went at length talking about the huge preview books that most comic shops use to order books for their store. They are filled with a lot of information, but also spoilers of events, which has made Tony give up reading them. However, the toys and replicas always gets his attention. They are definitely something that every avid fan should pick up at one point to see what else is out there as well as to tell your shop to order new books that you are interested in.
They also got into some good discussions of some new Marvel gimmicks, and how their recent “events” have given them fatigue. DC is currently climbing back with some positive books with their rebirth, and the sales numbers are there to prove it. They also brought up some of the fun of Pokemon Go, and how its already blowing up social media.
Some more previews coming out in the next few weeks have to deal with San Diego Comic Con. There will be the unveiling of the Captain America statue that will have a permanent home in Brooklyn to celebrate the 75th anniversary. Double Dare is also coming back for a week celebrating its 20th anniversary. Also some news on a future Aliens movie with the cast getting ready to celebrate their 30th anniversary at SDCC.
Booze and a Book was the pairing of The Flintstones #1 with a Pink Panty Dropper.
