A Distant Soil: CodaBased 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:

Speakeasy have what may be their final comic: Beowulf #7.

TokyoPop have the second volume of I Luv Halloween, and also the second volume of Telepathic Wanderers.

Relatively big week this week (since you and I might think it's the first week of March, but for Diamond shipping purposes it's really the last week of February...)

Really light week for me, just Comics Journal. But then, I can see at between 6 to 8 titles that I will eventually buy in TP form.

(Not that ADS Vol 4 isn't a great pick of the week, but I probably should read volumes 2 & 3 first, eh?)

Did you see the new Current has a cover feature on Scott McCloud? Nothing new, just WebComics 101, but still interesting.
