What upcoming July 2017 releases catch Mike & Greg’s fancy? Robotech! Sabrina! Boom! Bucky O’Hare! Stalin (what…?)! All that, plus more on the whereabouts of Sonic comics, some Kirby celebratory items, weird advertising strategies, and much more! Definitively something for everyone in this top half of this two-part “Previews” walkthrough!

In May 1978, 44 comics professionals (ranging from Frank Miller to Jim Shooter, Paul Levitz to Steve Ditko) gathered at Neal Adams' Continuity Studios in order to form a more perfect comics union. The seeds of that meeting would blossom almost forty years later into...nothing. But why? Why has no attempt at organizing the comics creative workforce ever been successful? Greg enlists the help of comics creator (and friend of the show) Samuel Teer to try and figure out the answer to that very question in this nearly two-hour conversation!

With FCBD 2017 mere days away, the lads take a look at how the annual LCS outreach program has grown from such humble beginnings while picking out their favorites from the FIFTY different titles offered up gratis this year. Does FCBD offer a more level playing field for smaller publishers to be noticed by all the new customers? Which comics pass and fail the thumbnail test? All that, plus an unpacking of DC’s decision to reprint a single WW issue for its FCBD offering, why Marvel loves its Secrets like DC loves its Crisises, the similarities of Captains, and why you should STILL buy something at the comic shop (even on FCBD) on this free-form Free Comic Book Day episode!

Another “Previews” in the pullbox means another look into our comics future! With focus shifting to the Premier section, what forthcoming June 2017 releases and discussion pieces catch Mike & Greg’s attention from Diamond’s top-tier publishers? Dark Horse Horror (with or without Hellboy)! The multiplatform juggernaut known as Clue (a game, then a movie, then a comic)! Further exploration of the Mike Mignola Unified Theory of Collection Covers! All that plus trying to describe Howard Chaykin, making comics that can't be read, why all these adult coloring books haven't sparked a “Comics Twart”-style jam collective among colorists yet, the many stages of the Big Two reprinting lifecycle, and more as they wrap up their efficient look at April’s “Previews” catalog!
