New This Week: September 13, 2006

The Two Faces of TomorrowBased 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 Yukinobu Hoshino's adaptation of James P. Hogan's The Two Faces of Tomorrow (from Dark Horse). If you're a fan of hard sci-fi manga like Planetes, you should enjoy this.

In other comics:

Alias have the extremely affordable B&W collection of ArmorQuest: Genesis.

Boom! have the third issue of the highly entertaining Talent.

Buenaventura Press have the 6th Kramer's Ergot.

DC have Musclebound, the fourth collection of Grant Morrison's Doom Patrol, featuring the Secret Origin of Flex Mentallo, Hero of the Beach! They also have new issues of 52 (week 19), DMZ (#11), Ex Machina (#23), Fables (#53), and Firestorm (#29); a collection of the new Jonah Hex series; and Brian K. Vaughan's new hardcover OGN The Pride of Baghdad.

Fantagraphics have a new issue of Love & Rockets (vol. 2 #17) and the fifth volume of Mome.

First Second unleash their second have of GNs; unlike some other bloggers I didn't get preview copies of any of them, but they all look nice, especially Journey into Mohawk Country.

Image have new issues of Casanova (#4), Girls (#17), and Phonogram (#2).

Marvel have a collection of Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man; and new issues of Thunderbolts (#106) and Ultimate X-Men (#74).

Oni have the third issue of Wasteland.

You could very easily unload a ton of cash at your FLCS today, so hold on tight to your wallet!
