IronGuard Bags & Boards on Cover Of Next Week's Diamond Previews

This may be the first time comic book bags and boards have been featured on the cover of a Diamond Previews catalogue. It's just the back cover though, the front cover has – not The Ambassadors – but Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips reuniting for a new non-Reckless noir hardcover graphic novel from Image Comics, Night Fever in which a man has to navigate the mysterious world of Europe and hope he can escape with his life. Post-Brexit, I know the feeling.

Then the back cover – a sign that Diamond is running out of comic publishers to spotlight – IronGuard Supplies who offer collectors comic and trading card supplies, get the big cover feature, coming to Diamond Comic Distributors. While the Previews spine will highlight that Free Comic Book Day returns on the 6th of May, 2023, and the Order Form cover will see Grimlock 12-Inch PVC Statue from Diamond Select Toys' line of Transformers statues with the Transformers Gallery.
