New This Week: July 14, 2010

Here's a look at what will be hitting the shelves of your friendly neighborhood comic store tomorrow:

The sixth and final volume in the Scott Pilgrim series, Scott Pilgrim's Finest Hour, is due to arrive. Maybe you've heard about it? Just in time for the movie, which hits theaters next month. It's a rare example of perfect timing in the comics-to-movies publishing schedule, as interest in the graphic novels in the series has been high ever since the first trailer debuted a few months ago, and the pre-order for the final volume was at the top of the Amazon comics & graphic novels chart last week.

Edit: Oops. While SPFH shipped to retailers this week, it doesn't go on sale until Tuesday (the same day as bookstores). So put it on your list for next week.
Also hitting stores this week is Fractured Fables, a kid-friendly anthology with stories by some top talents, including Jill Thompson, Bryan Talbot, Terry Moore, Mike Allred, Larry Marder, Ted McKeever, and many others.

Do you like vikings? DC have Viking Prince by Joe Kubert, a hardcover collection of the classic back-up series.

And Marvel bring us Agents of Atlas Vs., a hardcover collection of the Atlas vs. X-Men and Atlas vs. Avengers mini-series that bridged the gap between the former and current Atlas series. If you missed out before (and given the sales figures, chances are you did) you now have a second chance to read these fine stories.
