New This Week: May 2, 2007

First in SpaceBased on the NCRL, here are some comics you may want to look at picking up at your friendly local comic shop tomorrow:

The Pick of the Week is James Vining's Xeric-winning First in Space OGN from Oni Press. It's the true story of a chimpanzee trained by NASA for orbital space flight; how can you go wrong?

In other comics:

Abstract have the penultimate issue of Strangers in Paradise (#89).

Boom! have the first issue of Dominion and the final issue of X-Isle (#5).

Dark Horse have the sizable and affordable and generally fun Gunsmith Cats Burst Volume 1; the debut of a new Hellboy mini, Darkness Calls; a new volume of Eden (vol. 7); and a new issue of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (#3).

DC have the final issue of 52; a Showcase Presents volume for The War That Time Forgot; a collection of The All-New Atom: My Life in Miniature; and new issues of 100 Bullets (#83), The All-New Atom (#11), Danger Girl: Body Shots (#2), Detective Comics (#832), Hawkgirl (#63), Jonah Hex (#19), Justice League Unlimited (#33), Midnighter (#7), Shazam: The Monster Society of Evil (#3), and Superman (#662).

Del Rey have tons of manga, including a new volume of Nodame Cantabile (vol. 9) and the first volume of their edition of Parasyte.

Image have the debut of Alien Pig Farm; and the sixth collection of The Walking Dead.

Marvel collect my personal favorite Fantastic Four run in Fantastic Four Visionaries: Walter Simonson volume 1; and have new issues of Astonishing X-Men (#21), Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man (#20), Punisher (#47), Runaways (#26), Spider-Man Loves Mary Jane (#18), and Wonder Man (#5).

Oni have the second Love as a Foreign Language Omnibus.

TokyoPop also have a ton of manga, including the debut of Grand Theft Galaxy and a new Kindaichi Case Files (vol. 15).

Top Shelf have the all ages Korgi OGN.

Which should be plenty of comics to tide you over. Don't forget that Free Comic Book Day is Saturday, so drop by your FLCS a second time this week and sample something new!

I've got a blog called Barker Scans, where I translate some comics that will never be published in my country (Brazil). Do you have any interest in exchange links from our weblogs?
