A Helpful Guide to PREVIEWS (Courtesy of the Diamond Comic Distribution website):


PREVIEWS is Diamond’s monthly mag-a-log (catalog and magazine) of comic books, graphic novels and other pop culture merchandise which is on sale every month in comic book shops nationwide. Each month, PREVIEWS includes listings for almost every comic book scheduled to be on sale, approximately two months in the future. You’ll find complete descriptions of each upcoming issue, how much they will cost, thier format and other points of interest. PREVIEWS also provides information on other merchandise, too, including toys, books, games, videos and much more.

How can I buy the merchandise featured in Previews?

You can order any item you see in PREVIEWS! Every item is available from your local shop and will be in their store beginning in approximately two months time. You can go to your local comic book specialty store and request a copy of the Customer Order Form when you buy the printed PREVIEWS catalog — the store will pre-order the item(s) just for you! In addition, many shops operate a “Pull and Hold” subscription service whereby they will regularly order your monthly comic books and hold them for you to pick up later. Check with your local comics shop for more details!

If you would like to find a comic shop in your area, please visit the Comic Shop Locator Service online. You’ll be provided with contact information for comic shops in your area.
