Krayz Comics and Stories 434: November Previews

Cory!! and Joe COULD be watching Disney plus, but instead, they are thinking only of you as they talk about what’s new in Previews this month. What we do each month is go through the Comic Book Previews for orders due this month and go over the new series and graphic novels available to discuss what we will be buying what we recommend and stories that pop up along the way. It’s the Super Sized episode for the month, with this one being over 2 HOURS LONG!

All of this, the usual shenanigans, and much, much more!
