Here's a list of recent books we've received that have not shipped to most comic stores yet, for various reasons.
We've got all kinds of New Del Rey! On the left you can see the long-delayed Genshiken Fan Book, Me and the Devil Blues 2, Pumpkin Scissors 4, and Kujibiki Unbalance 2. On the right, we've got Psycho Busters 4, Shiki Tsukai 4, Shugo Chara 5, Minima 3, and My Heavenly Hockey Club 7.
We've also received a ton of new adults-only yaoi! We've got His Arrogance, Hanky Panky, I Shall Never Return 5, and You Will Fall In Love on the left side, and Red Blinds The Foolish, FreshMen, Object of Desire, and the non-adult Tricky Prince on the right side. Actually, Object of Desire isn't a yaoi title, it's an adult-oriented Josei (women's manga) title, just for the purists.
Finally, we've got the second excellent volume of Ed Piskor's WYSIWIG graphic novel, a fictionalized biography of hacker legend Kevin Mitnick. This has been a great series so far, and totally under the radar of most folks because it's an 1) indy 2) self-published series with 3) no distribution through Diamond. Really strong cartooning too.
Anyway, those are just some of the excellent stuff we've got here at the store that aren't really available at most shops. If you're ever looking for something off the beaten path, be sure to ask us and we'll do what we can to bring it in (if we're not already carrying it...).
