New This Week: January 5, 2006

The Maze AgencyBased 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 today:

The Pick of the Week is IDW's collection of classic The Maze Agency tales by Mike W. Barr and Adam Hughes. Great little closed-room type mysteries with a pair of fun detectives.

In other comics:

Aeon have the third issue of Matt Howarth's Keif Llama: Xenotech.

Alias have the final issue of David: Shepherd's Song--two weeks after the trade collecting it came out.

DC have the debut of Exterminators; and new issues of Gotham Central (#39), Jonah Hex (#3), JSA (#81), Seven Soldiers: Frankenstein #2, Superman/Shazam: First Thunder (#3--just how late is this?), Swamp Thing (#23), and Y, the Last Man (#41).

Fantagraphics debut their new upscale floppy line, with Chimera and Interiorae.

Image have a collection of the rather good Kiss & Tell series (oringally published by Beckett), and new issues of Down (#3) and Godland (#6).

Marvel have The Essential Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe, vol. 1, which will be a huge nostalgia trip for my inner 13-year-old geek. They also have new issues of The Punisher (#29) and Supreme Power: Nighthawk (#5).

And Viz dump a ton of manga volumes on stores this week (though some may have arrived at your store last week...)
