Supermassive & Destro on the cover of Next Week’s Diamond Previews
Diamond Time Previews. Where is it? Apparently the FTP site comic book publishers use to upload their images to Diamond Comic Distributors for Previewsworld is what doesn’t work and why there are a lot of missing images and solicitations today.

The Previews cover features GI Joe from Diamond Select Toys: Destro Legends in 3-Dimensions 1/2-Scale Bust, “International arms dealer and fan favorite villain Destro is the next GI Joe character to join Diamond Select Toys’ Legends in 3-Dimensional Half-Scale Bust Line, “while the back has Image Comics’ Supermassive One-Shot that kicks off the shared universe of Image Comics’ superheroes in 2022, “Image Comics’ new superhero universe extends beyond Radiant Black in February with the one-shot Supermassive, with the debut of Rogue Sun, Inferno Girl and Red.”
On the backbone of the Previews catalog, “Based on Carbon Gray by Hoang Nguyen and Paul Gardner, Magnetic Press and West End Games have teamed up for Carbon Gray: The Role-Playing Game, available in a Core Rulebook and Deluxe Boxed Set.
