August 2016 PREVIEWS Pre-Order Picks: IDW Publishing
EDITOR’S NOTE: This is the third consecutive month where we take a look at the monthly PREVIEWS catalog and highlight the books we feel should be added to your pre-order list. In order to keep the list as short as possible (Just imagine how tough that can be!), we focus on new titles or first volume collections only.
Your local comic shop depends on your pre-orders to help prevent shortages or overstocks. Since business reality makes it impossible for a local comic shop to order some of everything, they need you to tell them what you want to see. Please give it a try.
Pick up a copy of the August PREVIEWS at your local comic shop, or visit the online catalog at http://www.previewsworld.com. Then give your local comic store the list of what you want to pre-order for October 2016. We’ll do our best here to help you with those selections, from a BC Refugees point of view. Not objective, but absolutely subjective.

From the PREVIEWS catalog: "Art is anything you can get away with... destroy it all." Welcome to THE ELECTRIC SUBLIME-where art history, madness, and expression meet in a Pollock-splatter of thrilling crime adventure! When a mysterious change in the composition of a famous painting begins poisoning the minds of its spectators, Margot Breslin-director of the Bureau of Artistic Integrity-must pull famed "art detective" Arthur Brut out of a mental institution and back into the insanity that sent him there in the first place. Featuring a treasure trove of classical works, under-the-radar art, and a seven-foot talking mannequin, this is comics, imitating art, imitating life.

• The X-Files meets Alice in Wonderland, by way of The Da Vinci Code!
