New This Week: March 14, 2007

 Buffy the Vampire Slayer #1Based 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 Buffy the Vampire Slayer #1 from Dark Horse. Written by Buffy creator Joss Whedon, this issue kicks off the official "Buffy Season Eight." From the preview pages I've seen, it looks like the comic will have the feel of the Buffy tv show, but with a much larger special effects budget.

In other comics:

ALC have the fourth Yuri Monogatari anthology.

Amaze Ink have the third issue of the Disney-esque Wonderland.

Archie have a new issue of Sabrina (#83).

Boom! have the second issue of Tag: Cursed and a new What Were They Thinking: Go West Young Man.

Claypool have (what I think is) the final issue of Soulsearchers (#82).

Dark Horse debut a new BPRD series, Garden of Souls.

DC have two classic reprint collections: the second volume of Crisis on Multiple Earths: The Team-Ups, and Superman/Batman: The Greatest Stories Ever Told; a new volume of one of my new fave mangas, Emma (vol. 3); plus new issues of 52 (week 45), Fables (#58), Stormwatch PHD (#5), Superman (#660), and Wonder Woman (#5--completely redone for timeliness!)

Fanfare/Ponent Mon have the third volume of The Times of Botchan.

IDW have the final issue of Angel: Auld Lang Syne (#5).

Image have the massive Complete Invincible Library, vol. 1 HC for you big-pocket comic buyers.

Last Gasp have the one-volume manga Town of Evening Calm, Country of Cherry Blossoms, which probably would have been the Pick of the Week if I wasn't such a Buffy fanboy.

Marvel have a new Franklin Richards, Son of a Genius comic ("March Madness"); plus new issues of Blade (#7), The Irredeemable Ant-Man (#6), Punisher War Journal (#5), and Thunderbolts (#112).

Thrud have a new issue of Thrud the Barbarian (#5).

TokyoPop debut the new OEL titles, like Divalicious and King City.

Top Shelf have a second volume of James Kochalka's American Elf: Sketchbook Diaries.

Vix have the final volume of Please Save My Earth (vol. 21).

Plenty of comics to make your wallet thinner this week. Enjoy!
