Additional DC and Archie previews came in, which made the original post too long (more than 10,000 characters, the Ning limit). So I've split the post, like I had to do last week. I may have to do this every week I use all of the Future State previews, as they are extensive.
I don't know much about manga. I've read a few, and have my favorites, but by and large I wait for The Baron to say something about one or another that intrigues me enough to check it out. But there are a lot of manga published (or re-published) in the U.S. now, and I will add PR of various books when I have it. That's harder than it sounds, because manga PR is ... strange. I'll get emails touting stuff that came out weeks ago, or won't come out for six months or more. And The Baron just explained to me what a "light novel" was, that I was listing with the comics because I didn't know better. I'll do my best, but don't expect brilliance.

The Disney Bros. GN The Fabulous Story of Walt and Roy
Art: Felix Ruiz
NBM / 7x10 / 112 pages / full color HC / $19.99
After the bankruptcy of his first two companies, the young Walt Disney decides to call on his older brother Roy to start a new business: the Disney Brothers Cartoon Studios. The combination of their opposing talents, one artistic, the other managerial, will give birth to an entertainment giant despite the difficult nature of Walt.
Little by little, Walt will push his brother into the shadows and sink into chronic depression and excessive consumption of alcohol. ... But all this will not prevent him from producing the greatest masterpieces of animation.
The authors have chosen a cartoon style, worthy of Mickey Mouse comics, to tell a very serious story of creation, money and politics, but also ... of family.

“For years I’ve watched ballerinas from this room. I want what you want. I wish to join them.”
Miriam has trained her whole life to fulfill her dreams and it’s finally paid off now that she’s the prima ballerina of the Lulli Dance Company, but she’s been keeping a secret from them. The years of sprains, fractures, and bruises have taken their toll and a catastrophic ankle injury now means one terrible thing: she has to give it all up forever. Distraught beyond consolation, Miriam runs from the studio and discovers a secret room she’s never seen before. Inside she finds a pair of gleaming white and gold slippers and a mysterious voice whispering to her in the dark. If she tries on the slippers, it says, she’ll regain the strength to raise en pointe. It speaks the truth!
Soon, Miriam is back, but each achievement means danger for everyone around her and negotiation with the spirit who claims it wants just one little harmless thing in return . . . to join the ballerinas and dance, just like her.
Hanna Schroy is a cartoonist and illustrator living in Austin. She has participated in a multitude of self-published anthologies including Girls! Girls! Girls! curated by Alex Perkins and Thicker Than Blood curated by Mengmeng Liu. She is a long-time dance enthusiast and recent amateur gardener. hannaschroy.com
Lola’s Super Club Vol 01 My Dad Is a Super Secret Agent
Illustrated by Pierre Fouillet
$14.99 HC / $9.99 TPB
Join Lola’s Super Club to harness the power of imagination!
Lola is a girl like any other, except for one tiny detail: her father, Robert Darkhair, is James Blond, a top-secret agent so secretive, that not even he knows what he does, or at least that is what Blond wants us to believe. When the villains of Friendly Falls kidnap Lola’s parents, she becomes Super-Lola. Accompanied by her toy dinosaur Super-James (in undies) who can grow to the size of an actual dinosaur (but, ahem, not the undies) their cat Hot Dog, a pencil, an eraser, and an infallible duckie pool toy, she is off to the rescue.
Ah, imagination. It is our most powerful weapon.
My Life & Times: Spain Vol. 3 by Spain Rodriguez
In My Life & Times, Spain turns his eye on himself to create his most candid, autobiographical comic stories, which draw on the pivotal moments of his formative years: cruising with teen pals and wild acquaintances; the Buffalo, New York, jazz clubs; close encounters with women and sexuality; and his growth as an artist. Through rarely seen paintings, a sampling of sketchbook pages, and dozens of stories, in addition to essays by historian Patrick Rosenkranz, My Life & Times explains how Spain went from a misguided youth to a community elder who attempted to bridge the gap between underground comix and the emerging Latino Art Movement — he was even included in the "Neighborhood Heroes" mural at the local middle school. This collection of comics from Zap, Blab!, Young Lust, Rip Off Comix, and The Comics Journal make for Spain's most personal contributions from his over six-decade career.

My Hero Academia GN Vol 26
I'm looking forward to this. MHA and One Punch Man are my favorite super-hero stories these days.
I covered a local convention for The Daily Memphian and there was a kid there -- probably kindergarten, or first grade -- in a costume I didn't recognize. I asked its parents what the costume was, and they said My Hero Academia, which was the kid's favorite show.
Wha--? I haven't even read the book yet!
