The comics prognostication continues! Flipping to the front of the catalog, Mike & Greg’s attention focuses on Diamond’s top-tier publishers: Dark Horse! DC! Image! IDW! Marvel! All that, plus some questionable manga labeling from a publisher who should know better, pendulum swinging, more Cullen Bunn sightings, Abnett on “Legion of Super-Heroes”, umlauts & Flexi-discs, disproportionate Kirby 100 celebrations, and more as the lads wrap up another trek through the “Previews” catalog!
