This Week’s New Releases and … Huh? Avril Lavigne?!

By my count, it took exactly three weeks of doing these posts about what’s new every week before I totally deviated from the course. Yeah, there are a bunch of good comics coming out this week. DC’s WWIII books are of special importance and excitement, so I’ll be reading those first. Justice League #8 is also on my list. Marvel’s got a bunch of Civil War TPs that aren’t on my list, but I’m sure a lot of you are psyched about. But there is one book that deserves all of my attention this week.

AVRIL LAVIGNE’S MAKE 5 WISHES VOL 1
'Avril Lavigne's Make 5 Wishes' cover
Wow. How did I not know about this? This is the most exciting comics news in months! First Avril Lavigne puts out an “awesome” new album and now she’s got her own manga line courtesy of Del Rey Manga (a division of Random House). I bet the kids are “stoked” about this. How can they not be?

I needed more information, so I stole this from ICv2:

Avril Lavigne has been involved in the creative process that led to the development of this series and the Canadian rocker also appears as a character in the narrative about an introverted teenage girl who stumbles onto a Website where a demon grants her five wishes — although, unfortunately the shy girl’s wishes don’t always turn out as expected.

Avril Lavigne’s Make 5 Wishes Vol. 1 ($12.95) will be released on April 10th, while Avril Lavigne’s new CD The Best Damn Thing will debut on April 17th. Rocker Courtney Love certainly scored a hit for Tokyopop with her Princess Ai manga series (see “Princess Ai Comic Strip“), and Del Rey is obviously hoping that Avril LaVigne will be able to work a similar magic with her manga project.

Courtney Love? The mystery of female rock stars who shouldn’t have comics gets deeper! Why is this happening? It’s like an episode of Scooby Doo! I hope that introverted girl from Avril’s story didn’t wish for copies of the Courtney Love manga. Jeepers.
Oh yeah…here are the rest of this week’s books not involving Courtney Love and Avril Lavigne:
