New This Week: April 5, 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 Superior Showcase #1 from Adhouse Books, a new anthology series that features indy comix creators taking a stab at super-heroes (much like their well received anthology GN Project Superior, but less thick). This first issue features work by Nick Bertozzi, Mike Dawson and Dean Trippe.

In other comics:

Aeon have the conclusion of Matt Howarth's Keif Llama: Xenotech (#6).

Airship have the fourth volume of Girl Genius.

Dark Horse debut Toru Yamazaki's manga horror title Octopus Girl.

DC have a collection of Howard Chaykin's Challengers of the Unknown mini; the third collection of Ex Machina; and new issues of Aquaman: Sword of Atlantis (#41), Detective Comics (#818), Ex Machina (#19), Jonah Hex (#6), JSA (#84), Planetary (#25), Swamp Thing (#26), Winter Men (#4), and Y, the Last Man (#44). They also have the penultimate issue of Infinite Crisis (#6), which I'm sure will explain everything.

I Box have a new issue of Thieves & Kings (#48).

Image have the debut of the second volume of Lions, Tigers & Bears.

Marvel have the second digest of Marvel Adventures Fantastic Four, which you should really consider picking up because writer Jeff Parker is turning out some fun done-in-one stories for this all-ages title. There are also new issues of The Book of Lost Souls (#6), Marvel Team-Up (#19), and The Punisher (#32).

Oni debut Chynna Clugston and Ian Shaughnessy's Strangetown.

TokyoPop have the U.K. edition of Rising Stars of Manga.

And that's about it. Compared to last week, it's relatively sane!
