New This Week: January 4, 2007

All Star Superman #6Based 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 later today:

The Pick of the Week is, of course, All Star Superman #6 by Grant Morrison & Frank Quitely. Sure it only comes out once in a blue moon, but when it does it's always a treat. Sure to be your best reading for your hard-earned $2.99 this week.

In other comics:

Antarctic debut Dinowars: Jurassic War of the Worlds, and have a new issue of Gold Digger (#80).

Boom! have the fourth issue of X-Isle.

DC have a second collection of Manhunter; and new issues of 52 (week 35), All New Atom (#7), Jonah Hex (#15), Justice League Unlimited (#29), Manhunter (#27), Midnighter (#3), Superman (#658), and Superman Confidential (#3).

Fantagraphics have the latest issue of The Comics Journal (#280).

Image go all Paul Grist with collections of Jack Staff (vol. 3) and Kane (vol. 6); plus new issues of A Distant Soil (#38) and Fear Agent (#10). Plus there's finally the hardcover of the Hellshock Definitive Edition (any idea when the paperback is due out?)

Larry Gonick's Cartoon History of the Modern World hits comics shops (though it was in bookstores last week).

Marvel have Civil War #6 (if you're not on the West Coast...); and new issues of Civil War Front Line (#10), Irredeemable Ant-Man (#4), newuniversal (#2), Powers (#22), Punisher War Journal (#2), and Spider-Man and Power Pack (#3).

That should be enough comics to kick off your new year right!
