The December PREVIEWS Features:
Titanic Tomes — Omnibus and deluxe editions have become one of comics' most popular new formats; huge hardcover volumes that collect within their covers a large chunk of a comic book series. What makes a "Titanic Tome"? First and foremost, it’s a volume's overall size. Whether a book stretches its format past the standard 7" x 10" or 8" x 11" sizes, or pushes its page-count into upper digits past 200 pages, size does matter! Just look for the "Titanic Tomes" icon throughout December's PREVIEWS!
On The Flip Side — PREVIEWS talks to Dirk Wood, the creative director of IDW Publishing, about the Full Bleed Comics & Culture Quarterly, a hardcover quarterly anthology and a passion project for Wood that pushes the bounds of what comics can do and presents, in his words, "the best in comics, fiction, non-fiction, deep dive interviews, opinion, history, think-pieces, and more … a reading experience like no other."
