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 is the first issue of Grant Morrison & Philip Bond's Vinanarama (from DC/Vertigo). It's more high-concept from Morrison, in the comic equivalent of a Bollywood romantic comedy. Plus, with 32 pages of story and art, there's surely no better use for your $2.95 this week. Surely after We3 Morrison has earned the right for you to give this next project of his a look-see.
In other comics:
Beckett has the fourth issue of the domestic super-hero yarn Fade from Grace. C'mon man, it's only $1.99 for a full-length, full-color comic. And it's good, too. Those of you complaining that comics should be cheaper should put your money where your typing-fingers are.
Burlyman has the second issue of Doc Frankenstein.
Dark Horse has the collection of BPRD: Plague of Frogs, which was the first of the Hellboy/BPRD products that really grabbed me, other than just being mildly entertaining. (This would have been the Pick of the Week, if not for Vinanarama.)
DC has Brubaker & Mahnke's Joker Year One-style one-shot, Batman: The Man Who Laughs, along with new issues of Fables (#34), Gotham Central (#28), JLA (#111), and JSA (#70). There are also a softcovers of Steven T. Seagle's It's a Bird GN and the third Tom Strong collection, and the seventh collected volume of Lucifer.
Drawn & Quarterly has the eleventh issue of the much-delayed-but-still-worth-reading Berlin by Jason Lutes.
Marvel double's your Cap pleasure with the third issue of Brubaker & Epting's Captain America and the final issue of Captain America & The Falcon (#12). They also have the second issue of Peter David's return to the Incredible Hulk (#78); new issues of New Thunderbolts (#5), The Punisher (#17), and Ultimates 2 (#3); and the debut of the comic which nobody demanded, Young Avengers.
Oni has the final issue of Sam Kieth's Ojo (#5).
Finally, if you have two hundred bucks to blow on the Constantine Movie Statue: Keanu Reeves As Constantine, you need to just knock it off. Seriously, is this the sort of thing that anyone is interested in?
