New This Week: August 8, 2006

Girl Genius vol. 5Based 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 later today:

The Pick of the Week is Phil & Kaja Foglio's Girl Genius vol. 5. Sure you could read it all online, but wouldn't you rather have it in nice paper in your hands, and also support quality adventure comics? Yes you would!

In other comics:

Alias have a collection of the second Lullaby series, Power Grabber.

Antarctic have a new issue of Ninja High School (#140).

Dark Horse have the second issue of The Escapists.

DC have new issues of 52 (week 14), Fables (#52), Firestorm (#28), A Man Called Kev (#2), The Next (#2), Secret Six (#3), and Superman (#655).

Drawn & Quarterly have a collection of Chester Brown's Louis Riel biography, plus the fourth Drawn & Quarterly Showcase.

IDW have the fifth Legend of Grimjack collection, and the final showdown of Spike vs. Dracula (#5).

Image have a new issue of Negative Burn (#3).

Lost in the Dark collect the Fragile Prophet mini.

Marvel collect the rather good X-Statix Presents Dead Girl mini (which was really also a Dr. Strange mini...); and have new issues of She-Hulk 2 (#10) & Squadron Supreme (#6); plus the second Ultimate Spider-Man Annual.

TokyoPop may have the Star Trek manga (it's not in the NCRL, but is on my DCBS shipping list...)

Viz have new volumes of Banana Fish (vol. 15) and Ranma 1/2 (vol. 35).

Plenty of good trades/GNs this week, plus some good comics too. Enjoy your new comics!
