New This Week: September 12, 2007

So, what looks good on the racks this week?

Sergio Aragon├ęs' Groo returns for the first time in over five years with the Groo 25th Anniversary Special (leading into a new Groo mini-series starting next month). Easily the funniest comic book barbarian ever. Maybe this time there will be some new jokes? :)

Jonathan Hickman's The Nightly News was one of the most graphically innovative comics of the year, and also one of the angriest. It's now available in a trade in case you missed it in floppies.

It's Kevin Church week at Boom! as they have the fifth and final issue of Cover Girl and he has a story in the Cthulhu Tales: Tainted anthology as well. And new EiC Mark Waid makes his Boom! debut with the first issue of Potter's Field.

DC have a new volume of , the manga that (along with Gon) pretty much justifies the existance of the CMX imprint.

A new issue of Linda Medley's Castle Waiting (v. 2 #8) is always a good thing, yes?

As are new issues of Age of Bronze (#26) and Casanova (#9).

Lots of stuff from Tokyopop, including the 3rd and final volume of I Luv Halloween and a new Star Trek Manga. Viz is also shipping a truckload of manga.

Plenty of good stuff this week.

I have been reading GROO since I was a little kid!! Big fan, now it's 2007, and now it's coming out NOW, talk about a re-birth!

Anyhow, since this is a comic book related blog, I'd like to share my video of me and JK Simmons who plays
J. Jonah Jameson.

Great guy!!
