The August issue of PREVIEWS has arrived, so get excited for our picks of what comics and graphic novels to look for from October onwards. We throw in some honourable mentions and even have a whole section breaking down what Marvel have on the way!
Sarah's Top pick
Sour Pickles GN
Pickles Yin is a final year student at a prestigious art school struggling to live up to her own expectations of how to navigate the transition from education to career.
Surrounded by nepotism and wealthy peers, her friend Radish suggests an alternative method to achieve success that results in crumbling teeth and deteriorating mental health.
A semi-autobiographical comic about struggling to finish the final year at a prestigious art school, Clio’s debut full length work is a worthy successor to her acclaimed self-published zine, Is It Vague in Other Dimensions?

Dan's Top pick
Burn the witch vol 1
From the Bleach universe, Tite Kubo is back for more! This time with “an Eastern spin on Western fantasy”.
Behind the world you think you know lies a land of magic and fairy tales-but Reverse London isn’t the pretty picture that’s painted in children’s books. Fairy tales have teeth, and the dedicated agents of Wing Bind are the only thing standing between you and the real story.
“Wing Bind” is in fact the Western Branch of Bleach‘s Soul Society, and it’s implied that these “Dragons” are really the same Hollows that the Soul Society is set to destroy!
Ross' Top pick
Clockwork Apple by Osamu Tezuka
From “the Father of Manga” comes this anthology of sci-fi stories written in the late 1960’s to the early 70’s.
When a Nazi lieutenant is sentenced to death for war crimes, he expects to escape with his life, but hubris is his downfall. A female android marries for love but is soon lost, and she must deal with the consequences. After a married man finds out his city is being experimented on, he tries to save the people while struggling with adulterous thoughts. On a dark and lonely road, a cabby picks up a shady man who threatens him, but little does his passenger know the cabby is not as he seems. An educated man falls in love with an elusive woman who has a life altering secret. American school kids learn the cruelty of war. A revolutionary fails his revolution, and an interstellar peace conference does not yield the hoped for results when space hippies defy peace conventions.
