PREVIEWS - the comic shop catalogue!
Previews is the monthly catalogue issued to comic shops which contains solicitations for upcoming comics, graphic novels, merchandise and more. The easiest and safest way to order an item from a comic shop is to pre-order it from its original solicitation in Previews before the preorder deadline - otherwise you risk delays or not receiving your item due to shortages!
We want to make it easy for you to order from Previews, without overwhelming you with useless information. We send out a monthly newsletter and update our site with our Top Picks from Previews, along with a round-up of all the new number 1s, specials and crossovers in our New Series form. For those who want to make bigger or more specific orders, the Full Order form is available.
FAQs & Important Information
We cannot guarantee the availability or shipping date of any item, particularly for any orders submitted after the deadline. Sorry!
A 10% deposit will need to be taken on any item ordered worth over £30.
Please pay close attention to release dates - comics solicited in Previews are for 2/3 months ahead, books for up to 6 months ahead.
Please only order a case/assortment of items (action figures, mini-figures etc.) if you wish to purchase an entire case/assortment of it. If you would like only a single item from the batch, please email us the item code of the item you are interested in and we will let you know whether we can make it available for you.
How do I order?
Either submit your order through one of our online forms, or email firstname.lastname@example.org with your Full Order form or any queries.
Can I order variants this way?
Any incentive variants (e.g. 1 in 10, 1 in 25) that we qualify for are first come, first served and will likely incur an extra charge. Non-incentive variants are cover price to order.
Can I get Previews in print format?
Certainly, please ask in store!
How much is this book? All the prices are in dollars!
If you don't have the price, you can cross-reference the item code on the Previews online catalogue. Then you can use the dollar-pound conversion available on our FAQs page.
I see something in the Full Order form that isn't new?
Every month many publishers choose to solicit items related to new ones again in Previews, which then appear on the order form. If it is an item that has not been released yet but has appeared again, it is possible it has been re-solicited and the release date has changed. We should still have your order recorded, but please do email us if you are concerned.
I can't find what I'm looking for!
Usually, if an item is missing from the Previews Full Order form, it is because it is not available for order in the UK, or in the case of variants because we do not meet the requirements. If you are unsure whether or not it is available, please contact us and we will let you know whether or not we can order it in for you.
