The Dreaming volume 2Based 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 the second volume of Queen Chan's The Dreaming from TokyoPop. Volume one was a perfect blend of gothic wonderfulness, so I"m really looking forward to this next installment (just in time for the day after Halloween--thanks TP & Diamond!)

This is a good week for me! My pull list includes Detective, Ex Machina, Agents Of Atlas, Criminal and Local. I enjoy Paul Hornschemeier's work. I want to read Superman Confidental, too, with that creative team. And I still have "American Born Chinese" to read!! I better get going.
