New This Week: April 6, 2005

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 Seven Soldiers: Zatanna #1, with words by Grant Morrison & art by Ryan Sook (with Mick Gray). This is the Seven Soliders title that I've been looking forward to the most since the project was announced, and looking at the preview pages has only fueled my anticipation.

In other comics:

Abstract & Terry Moore have a new issue issue of Strangers in Paradise (#72).

Dark Horse has the sixth & seventh volumes of Sin City, just in time for the opening of the movie...

DC have Vertigo First Taste an inexpensive trade sampler featuring opening chapters from several of their GN series. They also have the second DC: The New Frontier trade; a trade collection of Garth Ennis's Authority: Kev; new issues of Detective Comics (#805), The Intimates (#6), The Losers (#22) and Y, the Last Man (#32); the final issue of The Witching (#10); and long-delayed new issues of Green Lantern: Rebirth (#5) and Superman/Batman (#18). Strange that DC's most-delayed titles are also their best-selling titles...

El Capitán have the 10th Anniversary Edition of the first Stray Bullets collection.

Evil Twin Comics have the first issue of Action Philosophers, which looks like it could be a lot of fun.

Image have the fourth Invincible collection and a new issue of The Walking Dead (#17).

New publisher Kandora have the first issue of their first comic, Barbarosa and the Lost Corsairs

Marvel have the first issues of the new Power Pack and GLA mini-series, as well as new issues of Incredible Hulk (#80), The Punisher (#19), and Ultimate Spider-Man (#75).

Shanda Fantasy Arts have the second issue of the latest volume of the long-running anthropomorphic sci-fi series Albedo.

TokyoPop have the eleventh volume of Kindaichi Case Files.

Viz have the debut volume of Doubt, as well as new second edition (i.e. backwards and smaller) volumes of Banana Fish (vol. 7) and Maison Ikkoku (vol. 10).

An finally, haven't you always wanted a Justice League Mini Paperweight? Well, for just $9.99 (or $10.99), one can finally be yours! Choose from: Batman, Flash, Green Lantern, Hawkgirl, Lex Luthor (Luthor? Isn't he a bad guy?), Martian Manhunter, Superman, or Wonder Woman.
