New This Week: May 4, 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 the first volume of Mike Grell's The Complete Jon Sable, Freelance from IDW, a classic series getting a deluxe trade collection.

In other comics:

Beckett have a new issue of Fade from Grace (#5), a nice little superhero/romance comic that you all should be reading.

Dark Horse have the final issue of the latest Jingle Belle mini (#4) and the penultimate issue of Concrete: Human Dilema (#5).

DC have the debut of the Englehart/Rogers/Austin mini Batman: Dark Detective; the final issue of Fallen Angel (#20) (though rumors have it returning in the near future from IDW...); the debut of Gail Simone's Infinite Crisis tie-in The Secret Society of Super-Villians Villains United (SSoSV is a perfectly good title--why are they shying away from it?); and new issues of Detective Comics (#806), Firestorm (#13), The Intimates (#7), Lex Luthor: Man of Steel (#3), Seven Soldiers: Shining Knight (#2), Swamp Thing (#15), and Y, the Last Man (#33).

Del Rey debut two new manga, Genshiken & Nodame Cantiabile (though I saw both last week at Barnes & Noble...)

Fantagraphics' third volume of The Complete Peanuts hits comic stores (though mine arrived from Amazon last week...)

Image debut a Rising Stars mini, Voices of the Dead (I'm waiting for the trade...) and have a colected edition of The Luna Bros.'s Ultra: Seven Days.

Marvel have the second issues of GLA and Power Pack.

Lots of manga from Viz this week, including volume 30(!) of Ranma 1/2.

Hope you find something you like!
