New This Week: April 25, 2007

Based on the NCRL, here are some comics you may want to look at picking up at your friendly local comic shop tomorrow:

The Pick of the Week is Marvel's Agents of Atlas hardcover collecting the mini-series by Jeff Parker & Leonard Kirk. It's a modern adventure about retro characters, not at all depressing or horribly revisionist and a lot of fun. The hardcover has lots of bonus features too, including reprints of the first appearances of the various characters.

In other comics:

AdHouse premiere Fred Chao's Johnny Hiro.

Amaze Ink/Slave Labor kick off a new story in Serena Valentino's Nightmares and Fairy Tales #19, with new artist Camilla d'Errico.

Archie have a new issue of Sabrina (#84).

Boom! debut Hunter's Moon and have new issues of Planetary Brigade Origins (#3) and Tag: Cursed (#3).

DC have Cary & Bolton's new OGN God Save the Queen; a new collection of Supergirl and the Legion of Super-Heroes (vol. 4); the start of Amazons Attack (#1); the final issue of Firestorm (#35); and new issues of 52 (week 51), Action Comics (#848), Astro City: The Dark Age (book 2 #3), Blue Beetle (#14), Catwoman (#66), Justice Society of America (#5), and Supergirl and the Legion (#29).

Dork Storm Press have a new issue of Dork Tower (#36).
