Making ComicsBased 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 Scott McCloud's Making Comics, which promises to be more than just a straightforward how-to book by mixing in a healthy dose of comix theory.

Antarctic have a color manga collection of Rod Espinosa's New Alice in Wonderland, and the premiere of Fred Perry's S-Guild.

Boom! have the third issue of Hero Squared Ongoing.

DC collect James Robinson's Batman OYL story, Face the Face; premiere Jim Starlin's Mystery in Space and Harvey Pekar's new American Splendor mini; and have new issues of 52 (week 18), All New Atom (#3), Battler Britton (#3), Detective Comics (#823), Jonah Hex (#11), and Y, the Last Man (#49).

Image have a new issue of Noble Causes (#23).

Marvel debut Marvel 1602: Fantastick Four; and have new issues of Agents of Atlas (#2), Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man (#12), Marvel Team-Up (#24), and the Punisher (#37).

NBM have a new issue of Boneyard (#22).

Oni finally have the sixth issue of Local.

Blogwhoring time. One book you didn't mention, but which is now out, is Alan Moore & Melinda Gebbie's for-adults-only Lost Girls. It's terribly pricey; but I did a blog post explaining how to buy it legally for only $15. In case anyone's interested.

And can't wait to read Scott McCloud's new book!
