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 today:
The pick of the week is Street Angel #5, the final (for now) issue of Brian Maruca and Jim Rugg's story of a skateboarding homeless teen who fights the forces of evil. You've read all the blog-o-sphere love, so pick it up, okay?
In other comics:
Adhouse Books has Project: Superior, an OGN with stories by indy creators doing super-heroes.
Aeon has the third issue of Matt Howarth's Bugtown.
ComicsOne.com (or whatever they're calling themselves now...) has the eleventh volume of Iron Wok Jan.
Dark Horse has the third issue of Concrete: Human Dilema, which is so far shaping up to be one of my favorite Concrete stories.
DC has two comics from the mad mind of Grant Morrison: Vimanarama #2 & the debut of Seven Soldiers: Shining Knight. Also from DC are the third Sleeper collection; new issues of Adam Strange (#6), Fables (#35), Gotham Central (#29), and JSA (#71); and Chuck Austen's final issue (yay!) of Action Comics (#825).
HK Comics has a new volume of Andy Seto's Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon adaptation (vol. 10).
Marvel has the first issue of Wolverine: Soultaker, in which Wolverine fights ninjas and zombies. What more do you need to know? Marvel also has a digest collection of Sean McKeever's Inhumans and the first issue of his new Mary Jane series, Homecoming. Plus concluding storyline issues of New Thunderbolts (#6) and The Punisher (#18).
NBM has the collected Hardy Boys volume, and the second issue of Cryptozoo Crew--which, I have been assured, has monkeys!
Oni has the final issue of Blue Monday: Painted Moon (#4).
Seven Seas debuts with two of their 'American-manga' volumes: Amazing Agent Luna & No Man's Land.
And finally, if you have $175 dollars burning a hole in your pocket, you can be the biggest geek on the block when you wear your X-Men Cerebro Helmet Replica.
