Another “Previews” in the pullbox means another look into our comics future! With focus shifting to the Premier section, what impending February 2017 releases catch Mike & Greg’s fancy? (Or Brian and Greg, since Mike is still on sabbatical?) Having finished the Green section, Brian's presence causes a crisis in Premier publisher discussion order; Marvel Comics takes the lead slot and DC Comics anchors the episode. But when you have one of the DC3 trio on your show, you can't pass up that opportunity to deep-dive on the Distinguished Competition, can you? (No, you can't.) So come for the Man-Thing/Swamp Thing discussion and stay for the book-by-book Rebirth breakdown! Definitively something for everyone in part two of this encompassing look at January’s “Previews” catalog!
