New This Week: December 8, 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 Global Frequency: Detonation Radio from DC/Wildstorm. This collection of issues #6-12 of the limited series show writer Warren Ellis at his best, as he crafts six taut done-in-one thrillers about 'normal-yet-extraordinary' people saving the world from extraordinary threats. He is joined by a different artist for each story; this volume features Lee Bermejo, Simon Bisley, Tomm Coker, Gene Ha, Jason Pearson, Chris Sprouse and Karl Story.

In other comics:

AiT/PlanetLAR has the final issue (#12) of Brian Wood & Becky Cloonan's Demo.

Antarctic has a Pocket Manga collection of Ben Dunn's fun alternate world/British secret agent story The Agents.

Dark Horse has the second issue of BPRD: The Dead.

DC has new issues of Fables (#32), Gotham Central (#26); JLA (#109--more with the Crime Syndicate); JSA (#68--JSA/JSA begins, with Per Degaton!); and the 100th issue of Nightwing (please please please don't let it suck...)

Image has the penultimate issue of JMS's Rising Stars (#23).

Lost in the Dark has a new issue of the end-of-the-world story Video.

Marvel has a new issue of Powers (#7) and, um, well, that's it really.

Origin has the first issue of Temporary: Cubes and Ladders

Viz has the fifth volume of Osamu Tezuka's magnum opus, Phoenix.

It's a small week, which is good because my to-be-read pile is waaaay too big!
