New This Week: May 17, 2006

Castle WaitingBased 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 the new Fantagraphics hardcover collection of Linda Medley's Castle Waiting. I know what you're thinking: $30 is a lot of money. But dude, it's over 450 pages of quality comics entertainment. In a handsome hardcover. Do yourself a favor and get this chunk of sequential goodness.

In other comics:

Amaze Ink/Slave Labor debut their latest Disney offering: Wonderland, with art by the wonderful Sonny Liew.

Boom! Studios debut what may be their best book yet: Talent.

Dark Horse have a new issue of Conan (#28), plus the third Conan collection in hardcover.

DC have a new Y, the Last Man collection (vol. 7); the debut of Bill Willingham's Shadowpact; and new issues of 100 Bullets (#72), 52 (week 2), All Star Batman and Robin, the Boy Wonder (#4), Bite Club: VCU (#2), DMZ (#7), Majestic (#17--the final issue, I think), and Manhunter (#22).

Dork Storm have a new issue of Dork Tower (#33).

IDW have a new issue of Fallen Angel (#5).

Image Comics have a new issue of Fell (#5), and the conclusion of Bomb Queen (#4).

Marvel debut Richard Corben's Haunt of Horror: Edgar Allan Poe and Jeff Parker's Marvel Adventures Avengers; new issues of Captain America (#18) and Ultimate X-Men (#70); and have a new Captain America hardcover collection.

Seven Seas have the third volume of Amazing Agent Luna.

That just about does it. Not a huge week, so you should really consider Castle Waiting...
