EDITOR’S NOTES: This is the weekend that pre-orders for November books are due. We’re hoping that you’re reviewing the September issue of Previews (with a copy from your local comics shop, or via the Previews website) and placing your pre-orders with your preferred comics source. It’s the best way to make sure that you get a copy of the books you want to read. It also helps your local comics shop determine what to order so they can manage that ever-growing inventory of books. Not sure what you want to get? In our usual helpful fashion, we concentrate on debut titles that we feel are worth checking out. We continue our spotlight with these publishers of note . . . . .
MOTHER PANIC #1: Writer Jody Houser, Art by Tommy Lee Edwards. The new Young Animal imprint at DC aims to be edgier and more far-out than their standard super-hero titles, striving for that middle ground between the Superman/Batman family of books and the
more adult Vertigo titles. Based on the description, MOTHER PANIC looks to be the most normal of the Young Animal debuts, but we doubt that. Violet Page is a celebrity with a nasty attitude. Rather than be a bored rich girl, she’s a vigilante in Gotham City.
