New This Week: July 19, 2006

Manhunter #24Based 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 later today:

The Pick of the Week is Manhunter #24 by Marc Andreyko, Jesús Saíz and Fernando Blanco. The title has been given a reprieve from cancellation, and now is the time to start buying it. All fans of exciting, intelligent super-heroics should give this comic a look.
