Items of note this week:
Taking a short, two issue break from the massive DARK AGES arc, we get the first of two Astro City specials.
Yup, that's a prequel to the DIE HARD movies, in comics form.
A new anime/video game-esque style mini-series from Camilla D'Errico and image comics. Full colour too.

It's a Previews week...

This year's guest editor? None other than Black Hole creator Charles Burns! He joins series editors Jessica Abel and Matt Madden for, hopefully, another excellent collection of comics.
Jeez, there's just a ton of graphic novels out this week, and for every taste and audience. Buffy continues to bring in fans of the show (diehard, new, or lapsed...) and this fifth collection has been hotly demanded by fans.
Print collection of the popular Zuda webcomic.
Apparently this is a very good eurocomics biography of The Man in Black, with stark black and white art. I wasn't terrible impressed with the likeness on the cover on this one, but the overall effect is nice. Looking forward to checking this out.
This one's actually already in store, and it's neat as all heck. Math and logic in comics form.
New Johnny Ryan...
Excellent new graphic novella from First Second.
The first of many, many Sherlock Holmes graphic novel projects to see print between now and the release of the movie.
And with the publication of this book, the complete SLEEPER arc (including POINT BLANK and SLEEPER SEASON 1) is now back in print. Ed Brubaker's found some great success with his new crime series' CRIMINAL and INCOGNITO, and deservedly so. We definitely recommend this one.
I actually don't remember what this is, but who doesn't want a graphic novel about Trotsky, amirite?
Fiiiiiinally. We've still got the complete run in stock in singles, but so many people came to Umbrella Academy with the collected edition that they've been waiting for this second trade paperback for a while. It's finally out this Wednesday, enjoy!
