New This Week: January 31, 2007

The Grave Robber's DaughterBased 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 Richard Sala's new graphic novella, The Grave Robber's Daughter, from Fantagraphics. Sala's stories are nearly always fun-spooky, and worth both your $$$ and your reading time.

In other comics:

Asbtract have the latest Strangers in Paradise (#87)

Antarctic bring the GD love with three comics: Gold Digger #81, GD Sourcebook #2, and Gold Digger 15 Year Anniversary Special #2. There are also new issues of Ninja High School (#146) and Dinowars (#2).

Archie have a new issue of Sabrina (#82).

Dark Horse have the 100th issue of Stan Sakai's Usagi Yojimbo.

DC have the 5th collection of Grant Morrison's classic Doom Patrol, and well as the final volume of Morrison's Seven Soldiers of Victory (vol. 4). There are also new issues of 52 (week 39), Blue Beetle (#11), Ex Machina (#26), Hawkgirl (#60), Jack of Fables (#7), and Uncle Sam and the Freedom Fighters (#7).

Image have new issues of Elephentmen (#6), Negative Burn (#8), and The Walking Dead (#34).

Marvel have the third collection of Whedon & Cassaday's Astonishing X-Men; a collection of the very fun Giffen/DeMatteis/Maguire Defenders; and new issues of Daredevil (#93) & Kabuki (#8).

Meisha Merlin have the second collection of Robert Asprin & Phil Foglio's Myth Adventures.

Plus Del Rey, TokyoPop & Viz all have tons of manga volumes dropping this week. I know that Diamond doesn't care about the manga that much, but couldn't they try a little to spread things out a bit more?
