Previews for Bulls (November 5, 2014)

In which a little stuffed bull looks at the comic shelves from the bottom up ('coz I'm very, very small) and tells you about comics, books, merch and dust-gatherers on sales tomorrow, Wednesday, November 5. So before you heads off to blow up Parliament just because you have a cool mask that came with your V for Vendetta trade, go buy some fine comics! Or maybe some of these.


GRAYSON #4

Here's a random thought: why is Dick Grayson called Agent #37 in this series...and not Agent #38?

Also, whoa, is that the most psychedelic and vertigo-inducing comic book cover you'll see this week?...




GREEN LANTERN #36

...OH WELL PLAYED DC.






JUSTICE LEAGUE UNITED #6

Speaking of those Lego covers (and good job being second to the market with Lego variant covers, DC), why is it that the comic features a Stargirl who wears a uniform that completely covers her body...


...but the Lego one is the Pre-New-52 "belly shirt" Stargirl?




PEANUTS TRADITIONS GREAT PUMPKIN PATCH FIGURE

On sale November 5. Just in time for Halloween.




JOHN CARTER WARLORD #1 BLANK VARIANT

At last, a comic book cover that adequately expresses Disney's commitment to the John Carter license!




EARTH 2: WORLDS' END #5

WHEN THREE STOOGES HORSEPLAY GOES TOO FAR




ROCKET RACCOON #5

Please please please someone publish a big fat hardcover of Skottie Young's variant comic book covers. The phrase "printing money" comes to mind.




BETTY & VERONICA #273 ART BALTAZAR VARIANT COVER

Ditto Art Baltazar.




DEADPOOL DELUXE FIBER-FILLED COSTUME

On sale November 5. Just in time for Halloween.




COMICS CODE AUTHORITY MUG

For everyone who enjoys their coffee watered down, tepid, and full of zuvembies!




MARVEL CHESS FIGURE COLLECTION: TASKMASTER BLACK PAWN

I'm of the firm belief that all the Marvel Chess Figures should move in accordance to the character's powers. Which means the Taskmaster figure can move any way he wants, as long as another piece has moved that way first.




DC COMICS ESSENTIALS: BATMAN YEAR ONE SPECIAL #1

DC has finally figured out how to pay Frank Miller tinier royalties.




THE WALKING DEAD JAWLESS WALKER MASK AND WALKER CHEST

On sale November 5. Just in time for Halloween.




GARFIELD #31

Everyone knows Garfield doesn't like Mondays, but here at last is concrete and canonical proof that Garfield likes the fourth Thursday in November.




DOCTOR WHO: REVENGE OF SWARM AUDIO CD

I would pay folding money to see The Doctor fight A NAZI MADE OF BEES.




FAIREST #31

You know, I'm still kind of sad that DC has completely severed the possibility of any crossovers between the DC Universe and the Vertigo Universe.




Hey, it's Krypto!




HALLOWEEN II BUTCHER KNIFE PROP REPLICA

On sale November 5. Just in time for...now wait just one minute why would anyone buy a replica generic-looking knife? Here, let me save you some money.






MICHAEL JACKSON SMOOTH CRIMINAL FIGURE

Please do not ruin my joke by pointing out that this is clearly just an error in matching an image and the description, but
THAT'S NOT A TOY OF MICHAEL JACKSON THAT'S A TOY FOR MICHAEL JACKSON.





And finally, please hire me to be your proofreader, Diamond Previews.

Meanwhile, back at the Lego factory: "Hans, they've introduced ANOTHER Supergirl costume!"
Hans, devastated: "Jeg knepper din mor!" Indicates a crate of Lego figures -- "Put these with the others."
Pan back on a warehouse full of crates labelled "Supergirl, costume 3217", "Supergirl, costume 3218"...
