New This Week: August 17, 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 James Turner's Rex Libris from Slave Labor. It's two-fisted librarian action--how can you go wrong?

In other comics:

Archie have a new issue of Sabrina (#69).

DC have new collections of Terra Obscura (vol. 2), Swamp Thing (vol. 2), JSA (vol. 9), and The Maxx (vol. 5); the debut issue of the Alan Moore-less Top Ten: Beyond The Farthest Precinct; and new issues of Authority: Revolution (#11), Birds of Prey (#85), Green Lantern (#3), Lucifer (#65), Manhunter (#13), and Seven Soldiers: Klarion the Witch Boy (#3).

Graphix have Chynna Clugston's new Queen Bee OGN.

Image have the second issue of Gødland and the fourth collected volume of Noble Causes.

Marvel have the Power Pack digest collection; the first Ultimate Spider-Man Annual; and new issues of Defenders (#2), New Thunderbolts (#11), and Ultimate X-Men (#62).

Pantheon have Joann Sfar's GN, The Rabbi's Cat.

Serve Man Press have The Runners: Bad Goods in a collected edition.

Speakeasy debut Rocketo.

TokyoPop have many many things, including the third volume of Dead End.

Hmmm, that appears to be it for this week. Kind of small, but I'm sure you'll find something to spend your money on (as long as it isn't the second Superman: For Tomorrow hardcover...)

Huh! I seem to have missed hearing of Queen Bee. I'll have to keep an eye out for that.

The RUNNERS trade is a must-buy. Excellent work!
