New This Week: November 9, 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 IDW's trade collection of Grimjack: Killer Instinct, a great return to the classic 80s character by original creators John Ostrander & Tim Truman. If you like fun & gritty action, this is the comic for you.

In other comics:

Antarctic have a new issue of Ninja High School (#133).

Archie have a new issue of Sabrina (#71).

DC have the fourth Losers collection, Close Quarters; a first collection of the recent Manhunter series; a collection of the started-interesting-and-with-potential-but-rapidly-went-downhill-and-never-resolved-anything IC-build-up mini Day of Vengeance; the debuts of Brian Wood & Riccardo Burchielli's DMZ and the latest Danger Girl mini, Back in Black; new issues of 100 Bullets (#66), Action Comics (#833), Majestic (#11), and Y, the Last Man (#39); the second issue of Infinite Crisis; and Gotham Central #37, which is oddly an IC tie-in, but also has guest art by Steve Lieber, so I'm sure that it will look good and I hold out hope that Rucka will be able to pull off the crossover...

Del Rey have the third volume of Genshiken.

DR Masters have the fourteenth volume of Iron Wok Jan.

Fantagraphics have a new issue of Luba's Comics & Stories (#6).

iBooks have Joe Kubert's new OGN, Jew Gangster: A Father's Admonition.

It's trade collection day from IDW, as in addition to the aforementioned Grimjack: Killer Instinct, the also have collections of 24, CSI: Secret Identity, The Complete Jon Sable, Freelance (vol. 3), and the hardcover The Complete Clive Barker Thief of Always.

Image have a new issue of The Walking Dead (#23).

Marvel have the Fantastic Four Wedding Special, and new issues of The Book of Lost Souls (#2), Drax the Destroyer (#3), New Thunderbolts (#15) (and a second New Thunderbolts collection too), and The Pulse (#12).

NBM have the third Hardy Boys OGN, Mad House.

Shanda Fantasy Arts have a new issue of Shanda the Panda (#44).

Viz have the fifth volume of Doubt.

And finally, Marvel also have the Maximum Fantastic Four volume of extreme Kirby minutae. I mean, I'm kind of inerested in what a book that delves so deeply into one comic will look like, but not $50 interested. Is anyone getting this?
