New This Week: November 17, 2004

Based 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 Plastic Man: On the Lam, the trade collection of the first six issues of Kyle Baker's Plastic Man. It's got super-heroes, and it's got the funny. You've been good this past week: you deserve to read a good comic and laugh.

Also from DC this week are the fourth Y: The Last Man collection; the second The Losers collection; Ed Brubaker's last issue of Catwoman (#37); the start of a new arc in Ex Machina (#6); the final issue of H-E-R-O; and the second part (though actually the first real part) of the CSA story in JLA (#108).

Marvel have Brubaker's first issue of Captain America; the start of a new arc in The Pulse (#6); a new Daredevil collection (vol. 10); the last X-Statix collection (vol. 4); the hump issue of Madrox (#3); and Chuck Austen's final issue of X-Men (#164).

NBM have a third Boneyard collection and the first issue of the mangafied Hardy Boys; Antarctic have a new Gold Digger (#57), a new Quagmire USA (#5), and an I Hunt Monsters pocket manga. El Capitan have a new Stray Bullets collection (vol. 8); Image have the third Invincible collection; and Penny Farthing have the penultimate issue of Para (#5).

Still have some change left in your pocket after all of that, then pick up last week's pick, Bugtown #1. Even if you haven't been following the Bugtown comics for the past 25 years, it's still new reader friendly.
