The new PREVIEWS catalog arrived this week and there are quite a few number ones coming. Here’s what we think you should keep an eye on!

1. Star Trek: The Next Generation / Doctor Who : Assimilation2 – Finally! The crossover we’ve been waiting for! The Borg and the Cybermen form an alliance that threatens all of time and space. Join the crews of the Enterprise and the TARDIS as the battle begins!

2. Mind the Gap – After being brutally attacked, Elle Peterssen is left in a coma. No one knows who the attacker is or where they will strike next. Rodin Esquejo of Morning Glories is involved which makes me super excited!

3. Trio – This is a new superhero story from John Byrne with superheroes called ONE, TWO, and THREE; or, ROCK, PAPER, and SCISSORS.

4. Magic The Gathering: The Spell Thief – Planeswalker Dack Fayden has been imprisoned by a Titan and must escape to find Sifa Grent. The first issue will also include an exclusive playable Magic: The Gathering card.

One response to “The Nice and Accurate Thoughts of Ben Eubank : Specifically, the March 2012 PREVIEWS Catalog (re: comics)

  1. The TP of Grifter I bought last month was very good. I tend to avoid the word “masterpiece” because, like the word “cult”, nowadays everybody employs it too often, so it lost a lot of its significance, but I was on the verge of using it for that TP.
