New This Week: April 13, 2005

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:

Pick of the Week? Well, it's probably Flight, vol. 2 from Image--the first volume was full of gorgeous artwork from a variety of artists. But that's pretty expensive at $25, so if you're looking for something a bit less costly, I'd go with Marvel's She-Hulk, vol. 2: Superhuman Law; the first volume was much fun, and I've heard good things about the stories collected in this second volume.

In other comics:

Dark Horse has the first issue of P. Craig Russell's Conan & The Jewels of Gwahlur.

DC has the penultimate issue of Adam Strange (#7), and new issues of Fables (#36), Gotham Central (#30), Green Arrow (#49), JSA (#72), Majestic (#4), and Tom Strong (#32).

El Capitan has a new issue of Stray Bullets (#37).

Image has the second issues of Beyond Avalon, Flaming Carrot Comics and Mora, plus a new issue of Noble Causes (#9).

Marvel has new issues of Black Panther (#3), Mary Jane: Homecoming (#2), New Thunderbolts (#7), Powers (#10), and Ultimates 2 (#5).

Small week, actually, so maybe you can afford that Flight, vol. 2 after all...

Actually, quite an expensive (and high-quality) week:

Flight Vol 2 (Image) $24.99
Blue (Fanfare / Ponent Mon) $23.99
Nil: A Land Beyond Belief (Slave Labor) $12.95
Supreme Power Vol 1 HC (Marvel) $29.99

That last one, of course, assumes you don't own those issues in a another form. If you don't, 15 issues for $30 is a pretty good deal.

If you see any of these on the shelf, check them out. There's some really cool stuff out there.
