Another Previews catalog showed up on their doorsteps, so it’s time to gaze into the tomorrow of February 2016 and see what catches Mike and Greg’s eyes.

School Judgment! From Now On! Shaft! As You Were! Powr Mastrs!

But wait, where's all the Marvel/DC talk? Well, friends, we got so into the spirit of talking comics that we had to split this episode in twain to fit it into the schedule. So look for the ensuing discussion about the front-half of the catalog next week!
