New This Week: September 28, 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 later today:

The pick of the week is the SPX 2005 Anthology, which is not only a smorgasbord of indy comics stories, but the proceeds go to benefit the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund. You get good comics, and you help out a good cause. You can't go wrong!

In other comics:

Abiogenesis have Strangehaven #18--which is funny, because the trade collection that included issue #18 came out *last* week...

Antarctic have three pocket manga collections: Chronicles of the Universe: Desperado Brothers, Mighty Tiny, and Gold Digger vol. 6. I'd recommend Mighty Tiny, seeing as it's a fine furry comic by Ben Dunn.

Archie have a new issue of Sabrina (#70).

Dark Horse have BPRD: The Black Flame #2.

DC debut their first two Essential Showcase collections of silver age stories in black and white: Showcase Presents Green Lantern & Showcase Presents Superman. You can also grab new issues of The Authority: The Magnificent Kevin (#2), JLA Classified (#12), Jack Cross (#2), Legion of Super-Heroes (#10), The Losers (#28), Otherworld (#7--last issue before the hiatus), Plastic Man (#18--buy it!), and the final issue of The OMAC Project (#6).

Evil Twin have a new Action Philosophers comic: Self Help For Ugly Loosers.

IDW have Angel: The Curse #4.

Image have a new issue of Invincible (#26) and the first collection for Sea of Red: No Grave but the Sea.

Kenzer & Co. have a new Knights of the Dinner Table (#107).

Marvel debut Black Widow 2, Drax the Destroyer, and Sentry; new issues of Daredevil (#77), Ultimate Spider-Man (#83), and X-Men Kitty Pryde Shadow & Flame (#4); the hardcover Black Panther: Who Is Black Panther collection; and a fourth Runaways digest collection.

Oni debut the Polly & The Pirates mini.

And if all that's not enough, there are 50 new volumes of manga. Yeah, that's right, FIFTY. Way to spread 'em out, guys! Burried in the listings are the OEL debuts: I Luv Halloween, Dramacon, and Steady Beat, all three highly anticipated.
