New This Week: June 20, 2007

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

If you've been paying attention, it will come as no surprise that the Pick of the Week is Yotsuba&! vol. 4 by Kiyohiko Azuma. It's funny, it's adorable, it's smart, it's clever, and it's manga. What more do you want for your $10?

In other comics:

In addition to Yotsuba&!, AD Vision also have the 11th volume of Cromartie High School.

About Comics have Schulz's Youth in hardcover and paperback.

Alternative Comics have a new issue of Hickee (vol. 3 #3).

Amaze Ink/Slave Labor have a new issue of Wonderland.

Antarctic have a new issue of Gold Digger (#86) and the second issue of Gold Digger Peeba Tales Summer Fun Special.

Boom! have trade collections of Hero Squared and Tag.

DC have a second trade collection of Blue Beetle, and a first collection of Stars and Stripe (under the JSA Presents pre-title; it's a great all-ages super-hero title from before Geoff Johns got all dismemberment-happy); and new issues of The Brave and The Bold (#4), Catwoman (#68), Countdown (#45), Ex Machina (#29), Hellblazer (#233), Justice League of America (#10), Legion in 31C (#3), and The Spirit (#7).

Fantagraphics have the second issue of Richard Sala's Delphine.

Girl Twirl Comics have the seventh collection of Jane's World.

Image have a collection of Phonogram and the debut issue of Madame Mirage.

Kenzer & Co. have the eighteenth Knights of the Dinner Table Bundle of Trouble.

Maerkle Press have the fouth issue of the romantic super-hero comedy Love and Capes.

Marvel have the third digest of Jeff Parker's Marvel Adventures The Avengers, which has both the MODOC story and the Ego the Loving Plant story, making it the second-best collection you'll buy this week (after Yotsuba&!, of course). There's also a hardcover collection of Parker's X-Men: First Class; and new issues of Captain America (#27), Marvel Avengers Iron Man (#2), Spider-Man/Fantastic Four (#3--that Parker guy again!), and Ultimate Spider-Man (#110).

Viz have a ton of manga, including the debut of Gin Tama and the 30th(!) volume of Inu Yasha.

Go, buy Yotsuba&! You won't be sorry!
