Chris vs. Previews: August 2010



A new month brings with it 500+ new pages of crap you don’t really need, which is why I’ve sat down once again for Chris vs. Previews!

Highlights this month include my snap judgment of Nick Spencer’s new Jimmy Olsen series, a look at Mark Millar’s new magazine project, and, in the comments, a spirited debate over which subgenre can properly lay claim to a fictional band.

  1. It’s not just you. (Side effect of the midi-chlorians; see your doctor if this occurs.)

  2. I kind of hope that’s not an error or weird affectation and there really is going to be a comic about a cross eyed lady Jedi. That’s enough novelty to get me to pick up a Star Wars comic.

  3. That would be awesome. She could show up, Zelig or Forrest Gump like, at key moments in Star Wars’ history, causing problems or saving lives, depending on the circumstance, with her crosseyed and clumsy Jedi ways.

  4. I swear, I’ve been turning over that copy of Previews every time it lands that side up on our dinner table. I cannot look at Crosseyed Jedi Lady any more.

  5. I grabbed this solely for the promise of Spider-Girl content.

    When it comes to Paul Tobin and obscure characters me and five other people like I cannot be denied.
