June 2016 Pre-Order Picks: ACTION LAB, AFTERSHOCK
EDITOR’S NOTE: Continuing a new feature, as we peruse the monthly PREVIEWS catalog and highlight some books we feel are worthy of your attention.
Your local comic shop depends on your pre-orders to make sure they have the books you want when you want them. Since business reality makes it impossible for a local comic shop to order some of everything, they depend on the comics readers to tell them what they want to see. It’s a dice roll for them every month. Won’t you help with the odds by at least telling them what you want to buy from them in two months? Please give it a try. We’ll do our best here to help you with those selections, from a BC Refugees point of view. Not objective, but absolutely subjective.

ACTION LAB, DOG OF WONDER #3 of 3 Now celebrating five years in the comics business, ACTION LAB is a company to keep an eye on. ACTION LAB, DOG OF WONDER features their company mascot in an all-ages tale with something to appeal to everyone. It’s one of our favorite books geared towards the younger readers. Even though this issue concludes the first story arc, it’s reader-friendly enough that you could start here and still follow along without needing additional information. Your local comic shop should be able to re-order Issues #1 and #2 through Diamond Distributors. Why wait for the eventual trade paperback. I’m planning on gifting my grandson with a copy of that when it becomes available so I have something cool to read to him (10 months old). BC posted an in-depth review and interview several months ago, which you can read here . . . . . .
