Supermassive & Destro On Next Week's Diamond Previews Cover
Diamond Previews time. Or is it? Apparently, the FTP site that comics publishers use to upload their images to Diamond Comic Distributors for Previewsworld is what's down and why there are a lot of missing images and solicitations today. But Bleeding Cool is doing its best as ever on a Diamond Day like today. And we have a look ahead to next week's Previews catalogue – including what's on the front and back.
The front cover of Previews features Diamond Select Toys' G.I. Joe: Destro Legends in 3-Dimensions 1/2-Scale Bust, "International arms dealer and fan-favorite villain Destro is the next G.I. Joe character to join Diamond Select Toys' Legends in 3-Dimensions half-scale bust line", while the back has the Image Comics' Supermassive One-Shot kicking off the bog Image Comics superhero shared universe of 2022, "Image Comics' new super-hero universe expands beyond Radiant Black this February with the Supermassive one-shot, featuring the debuts of Rogue Sun, Inferno Girl, and Red."
On the Previews catalogue spine, "Based on Hoang Nguyen and Paul Gardner's Carbon Grey, Magnetic Press and West End Games have teamed up for Carbon Grey: The Role-Playing Game, available in a Core Rulebook and Deluxe Boxed Set. And on the Customer Order Form, "It's Morphin' time as the Blue, Green, and Pink Rangers, plus robot Alpha 5, make their Minimates debut in Diamond Select Toys' Power Rangers Series 1 Box Set".
