Bleeding Cool has an advance look at this Wednesday's Diamond Previews catalogue – still the largest collection of comic book listings anywhere in the world, even though they have lost DC Comics. And cover placement is still an important achievement for comic book publishers in promoting their work, wide and far, two-to-three months ahead of publication.
