The shipping news: At Previews Review, Chris Butcher and Scott Robins take a look at what's shipping this week in their usual fashion, but a little heavy on the superheroes:

Butcher, on ABADAZAD: "The long-delayed series from Crossgen bows. On the minus side, it’s a Crossgen fantasy comic. On the plus side, it doesn’t really look like a Crossgen fantasy comic, it looks like something else entirely. The marketing guy described the lead as 'plucky' earlier today. This is really, really excellent, because I think it shows a clear understanding of their demographic: people old enough to use the term ‘plucky’ to describe 14 year old girls."
