Film Noir Releases in June 2016

Just a quick word or two about these new releases. I hope you find these monthly lists helpful. If you’ve been following these posts for awhile, you know that some months are pretty slim and others are exploding (like this month). Although I could include releases from many other countries, I’m going to limit myself primarily to those released in the U.S., UK, and France. I know the European discs will (usually) only work for those with a region-free player, but I hope some of these releases will cause you to consider a region-free device.

Are You Reading Previews? You Should!


If you’re into comics and aren’t getting the monthly Previews catalog, you should. For the price of one comic book, you can find out about all the comics and graphic novels (as well as apparel, toys, statues, etc.) coming out in the next few months. Derek and Andy K. do a monthly podcast at The Comics Alternative covering the Previews catalog and I highly recommend it.

A couple of my favorite creators will have books coming out soon including Copra Round Two from Michel Fiffe and the next installment of Nathan Hale’s Hazardous Tales: The Underground Abductor by Nathan Hale. That’s only two titles from hundreds that you’ll read about in Previews, so be sure to check out the podcast and grab a copy of Previews.
