New This Week: January 25, 2006

Nextwave #1Based 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:

The Pick of the Week is Warren Ellis's Nextwave. Even though Ellis's work for Marvel as of late has been rather lackluster, I have a good feeling about this one. Stuart Immonen & Wade Von Grawbadger provide the visuals.

In other comics:

Speaking of Ellis, Avatar have the debut issue of the Warren Ellis Black Gas mini.

Dark Horse have the concluding issue of BPRD: The Black Flame (#6); a collection of the Serenity prequel mini; and the unfortunately-named Sexy Chix.

DC have new issues of Catwoman (#51) and Majestic (#13); the debut of Gail Simone and Jose-Luis Garcia-Lopez's Justice League tale in JLA: Classified #16; and the final issue of Kyle Baker's Plastic Man (#20)--I blame you--all of you--who didn't buy this comic for its demise. What is wrong with you that you couldn't shell out $3 every other month for Kyle Baker funniness?

DMP might have the 2nd volume of Bambi and Her Pink Gun (it's not on the NCRL, but I've seen it on other shipping lists for the week).

Fantagraphics have The Comics Journal Library vol. 6: The Writers, and the first issue of Kevin Huizenga's Ganges.

IDW have the second issue of the resurrected Fallen Angel.

Image have a double-dose of cosmic, with the first Gødland collection, Hello Cosmic, as well as the 7th issue of the series.

It's a day of long-delayed comics finally showing up from Marvel, with Defenders #5, the Powers Hardcover, and Spider-Man/Black Cat: The Evil That Men Do #6 all making an appearance. There's also the final Bendis/Gaydos issue of Daredevil (#81), the last issue of X-Men and Power Pack (#4), Ultimate Spider-Man #89, Spider-Man Loves Mary Jane #2, and The Pulse #13.

Oni have the third issue of Local.

Shanda Fantasy Arts have the 10th Giant Shanda Animal.

TokyoPop have 17 different titles--one of which may be of more interest to you than to me.

Top Shelf have the penultimate issue of Surrogates (#4).
