New This Week: November 16, 2005

All Star Superman #1 CoverBased 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 All Star Superman #1 by Grant Morrison & Frank Quitely. These are the same guys who brought you one of last year's best comics, We3, made the X-Men really interesting for the first time in years, and gave us the Flex Mentallo series. And now they're doing my favorite super-hero, Superman. I've been anticipating this comics ever since it was announced (I just hope that it lives up to my high expectations!)

In other comics:

Dark Horse have the second chronological Concrete collection, Concrete: Heights.

DC have the first collection of Waid and Kitson's Legion reboot in Legion of Super-Heroes, vol. 1: Teenage Revolution; the debut of Matt Wagner's Batman and the Monster Men mini; and new issues of Birds of Prey (#88), Captain Atom: Armageddon (#2), Fables (#43), Green Lantern (#5), Hellblazer (#214), Manhunter (#16), and Top 10: The Farthest Precinct (#4).

Image have a new Kane collection: Kane, vol. 5: Untouchable Rico Costas & Other Stories.

Marvel have the second collection of Whedon & Cassaday's Astonishing X-Men; and new issues of Runaways (#10) and Ultimate Spider-Man (#86).

Moronik have the second issues of Bug Girl and Dirtboy.

Oni have the final issue of Banana Sunday (#4) (good funny comics make Dave's tummy happy!) and the first issue of Local.

Viz have the sixth issue of Shojo Beat.

That's it. A relatively small week, all things considered. So you have no excuse to not buy All Star Superman #1!
