New This Week: December 6, 2006

Based 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 Curses, the collection of Kevin Huizenga's work from Kramer’s Ergot and The Drawn & Quarterly Showcase. Huizenga is a huge fave here, and a hardcover collection will be extra nice. (PDF Preview)

In other comics:

Abstract have a new issue of Strangers in Paradise (#86).

Antarctic have a new issue of Gold Digger (#79), a new Metadocs one-shot, and a Tigers of Terra special.

Ape have a new issue of Athena Voltaire: Flight of the Falcon (#3).

Boom! have the fourth issue of the Hero Squared Ongoing.

Checker have a trade collection of early The Trouble with Girls.

DC debut the new Justice Society of America & Batman Confidential series; return to Manhunter (#26); give a Showcase Presents volume to Shazam!; and have new issues of 52 (week 31), All-New Atom (#6), American Splendor (#4), Desolation Jones (#8), Jonah Hex (#14), Justice League Unlimited (#28), Midnighter (#2), and Superman Confidential (#2).

IDW have the second issue of the Angel: Auld Lang Syne mini.

Marvel debut Warren Ellis's take on the old New Universe with newuniversal; have this year's Marvel Holiday Special; a second Runaways hardcover; and have new issues of Agents of Atlas (#5), Doctor Strange: Oath (#3), The Irredeemable Ant-Man (#3), and Spider-Man and Power Pack (#2).

Oni debut the Leading Man mini.

Seven Seas have the second volume of AOI House.

Viz have several manga, including some new Shojo Beat volumes like Aishiteruze Baby, Baby & Me, Beauty Pop, and Crimson Hero.

So try to save some money from Christmas shopping and buy some fine comics for yourself (or put Curses on your list to Santa!)
