New This Week: April 12, 2006

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 tomorrow:

The Pick of the Week is Oni's collection of Andi Watson's Little Star mini-series. I didn't read the floppies, but Watson rarely disappoints so I'm looking forward to sitting down with the collection.


In other comics:

Abstract have the latest Strangers in Paradise (#81).

Airship have the fourth Girl Genius hardcover collection.

Antarctic have new issues of Gold Digger (#74) and Gold Digger Color Remix (#4).

Archie goes otaku in Archie #565.

Dark Horse have a new Hellboy collection (vol. 6: Strange Places) and the first issue of the new BPRD mini, Universal Machine. They also have the second Nexus Archives hardcover, for those of you with lots of money.

DC's latest Showcase Presents is Teen Titans vol. 1; and they have new issues of Desolation Jones (#6), DMZ (#6), Fables (#48), Firestorm (#24), and Superman (#651).

Evil Twin have Action Philosophers: Hate the French.

Fantagraphics have a collection of Eddie Campbell's Alex.

Image have Brian Wood's Tourist OGN, and a new issue of Noble Causes (#19).

Marvel have an oversize hardcover collection of Astonishing X-Men (for the 5 of you X-Men fans who haven't already bought the stories once or twice already); the TPB of the first Young Avangers collection; and new issues of Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man (#7), Marvel Adventures Fantastic Four (#11), and Ultimate Spider-Man (#93).

Sirius have two new Akiko pocket size collections, vols. 4 & 5.

Viz have new volumes of Banana Fish (vol. 13) & Crimson Hero (vol. 2).


Enjoy your new comics!

I think you're thinking of Eddie Campbell's "Alec" series. The "Alex" book you're referring to from Fantagraphics this weeks is by Mark Kalesniko:
