New This Week: September 19, 2007

Ahoy mateys! There be good swag at the olde comick shoppe this day!

Celebrate the 10th anniversary of Carla Speed McNeil's Finder with the Finder: Sin Eater 10th Anniversary Hardcover. It collects the first two trade paperbacks (i.e. issues #1-14) plus the never-before-collected issue #22. And if you want to complete your Finder collection, Lightspeed Press is also re-issuing the third through eighth trade collections as well. Finder is anthropological science fiction at its finest; if you're a fan of Ursula Le Guin's science fiction, you should give Finder a look.

Other collections of interest include the final Strangers in Paradise Pocket edition (vol. 6) and Dr. Thirteen: Architecture and Morality, collecting the highly-praised back-up feature from Tales of the Unexpected by Brian Azzarello & Cliff Chiang.

Manga connoisseurs will surely want to pick up the 11th volume of Tezuka's Phoenix and the first volume of Keiko Takemiya's proto-shojo Andromeda Stories.

Regular comics? How about a new issue of Sabrina, the second issue of Johnny Hiro, and the penultimate issue of World War Hulk?

And if there bein' still a few pieces of eight in yer pockets, you can celebrate Talk Like a Pirate Day by grabbin' ye a copy of Ted Naifeh's Polly and the Pirates or Boom!'s Pirate Tales anthology. Just the thing to get ye into the mood for sacking and pillaging. Aaarrrrr!
