New This Week: March 8, 2006

La PerdidaBased 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:

There are many good books coming out this week, but for The Pick of the Week I'm going with Jessica Abel's La Perdida collection from Pantheon. I've read the first two (of 5) issues that are included here, and it's very good, presuming you like the slice-of-life/fish-out-of-water angsty indy comics stuff.

In other comics:

Brian Fies's Eisner-winning Mom's Cancer is just now being solicited in the current Previews, yet apparently is shipping this week? Very odd...

AD Vision have a new volume of Cromartie High School (vol. 5).

Aeon have the penultimate issue of Matt Howarth's Keif Llama: Xenotach (#5).

AiT/PlanetLAR have a new Sky Ape one-shot: King of Girls.

Amaze Ink/Slave Labor have a new Lenore collection (vol. 3).

Dark Horse solicited Dare Detectives, vol. 2: The Royale Treatment over a year ago, and now it's finally showing up in stores.

DC have a Birds of Prey collection: Between Dark and Dawn; two Seven Soldiers issues: Frankenstein #4 & Mister Miracle #4; the last issue of Alan Moore's Tom Strong (#36); a couple of OYL titles: Firestorm, the Nuclear Man #23 & Teen Titans #33; and new issues of The Exterminators (#3) and Fables (#47).

IDW have a new issue of Maze Agency (#3).

Illusive Arts havea new issue of Dorothy #5).

Image have adouble dose of Ellis with the fourth issues of both Dawn & Fell; the Socom: Seal Team Seven OGN; the first Rocketo collection (with two issues that apparently will never be published); and new issues of Bomb Queen (#2) & Invincible (#29).

Marvel debut the Fantastic Four: First Family mini; celebrate the 100th issue of Thunderbolts; and have new issues of Powers (#17), The Pulse (#14), and Ultimate Spider-Man (#91).

Moonstone have the Cyclone Bill and the Tall Tales OGN.

TokyoPop have the first volume of Ross Campbell's OEL manga The Abandoned.

Viz have a ton of stuff too (some of which may have reached your store last week...)

You could easily spend of ton of money this week, so good luck with your choosing!
