Based on the NCRL list for this week's comics shipping from Diamond, here are a few things to look for at the local comic shop tomorrow:
The pick of the week comes from About Comics: It's Only a Game is a collection of the other comic strip done by Peanuts creator Charles Schulz, a single-panel sports feature that ran in the late 1950s. I've never read any of these, so I'm really interested in checking it out.
In other comics:
Abstract has the latest Strangers In Paradise collection (vol. 15).
Avatar has the first of the Apparat titles from Warren Ellis: Frank Ironwine. This is the one I'm most looking forward to, as it has art by Carla Speed McNeil.
Dark Horse has the first issue of a new Jingle Belle mini.
DC has the third issue of Adam Strange, the second issue of Brubaker's Authority: Revolution, another Identity Crisis tie-in with Flash (#216), the second issue of Green Lantern: Rebirth, a second Technopriests volume, and another Superman (#211) with pretty Jim Lee art.
Image has the second Walking Dead collection.
Marvel has new issues of Black Widow (#3), Daredevil (#67), New Thunderbolts (#2), Powers (#6), Supreme Power (#13), and just in time for the holidays, the Marvel Holiday Special 2004.
New Flame has the final issue of Nabiel Kanan's The Drowners (#4).
Oni has the third issue of Sam Kieth's Ojo.
In manga: A. D. Vision has the first volumes of three new manga: First King Adventure, More Starlight To Your Heart, and Mystical Prince Yoshida Kun; TokyoPop has two new manga series: Love or Money and Mouryou Kiden: Legend of the Nymphs; while Viz has just one new series, Wolf's Rain.
And lastly, TwoMorrows has Best of the Legion Outpost for all you old-school LSH fans.
That should be enough to keep you busy reading over the long holiday weekend!
