New This Week: August 16, 2006

Adventures in OzSorry I'm a day late, but here are a few things to look for at your local comic shop this weekm, based on the NCRL list for this week's comics shipping from Diamond:

The Pick of the Week is Adventures in Oz from IDW, collecting several of Eric Shanower's original Oz adventures from the 80s and 90s. Good stuff.

In other comics:

Boom! have the first issue of the zombie-bashing Savage Brothers.

Clib's Boy Comics have the final pre-Image issue of True Story, Swear to God (#17).

Dark Horse have a new issue of Conan (#31) and another expensive Nexus Archives volume (vol. 4).

DC have a trade collection of the 70s Justice Society revival; the debut of Ennis & Robertson's Boys; and new issues of 100 Bullets (#75), 52 (week 15), Catwoman (#58), Hellblazer (#223), Manhunter (#25--buy Manhunter!), Shadowpact (#4), and Testament (#9).

IDW have the final Angel Spotlight one-shot: Conner.

Image have the debut of Phonogram and a new issue of Casanova (#3).

Marvel have new issues of Nextwave (#7), Runaways (#19), and Thunderbolts (#105). They may also have the Marvel Zombies HC (it's not on the NCRL, but is in my DCBS shipping list...)

Oni have the second issue of Wasteland.

Scholastic have the fourth color volume of Bone.

TokyoPop have the Star Trek Manga anthology (if your store didn't get it last week...)

Many good things to look for. Enjoy your new comics!
