Virgin Comics October Previews...

If you read the Spotlight page last week, you know we got a look at the first issues of three of Virgin's books.

They were readable and interesting. Some of the art came from what Gotham Chopra described as the Indian comics tradition, but really, there is nothing jarring about the style.

Let's face it -- Indian comics look pretty much like American comics. Only the stories are foreign, and even that's a misnomer.

The more we read Virgin, the more we'll see the stories are the same.

So dig into these advance solicitation descriptions, and check out the covers Virgin has sent our way.

The Amano alternate cover at right for Seven Brothers is the largest the image gets, but all the other thumbnails will click onto bigger images.
