This Week’s New Releases and Recommendations

Alright, Tuesday’s over. You probably took the day off of work yesterday to play HALO 3, but it’s time for a break. Lucky for you, new comics come out today! Also lucky for you, there is a lot of notable stuff coming out this week. So put down your limited edition Todd McFarlane XBOX 360 controller and read some comics already!

Greg McElhatton has taken some time out of his busy schedule (my money is on a Doctor Who marathon) to supply us with this week’s indie picks. To the TARDIS!

Best American Comics 2007BEST AMERICAN COMICS 2007
The second in the Best American Comics series of books, it’s like a yearbook of the best in comics from the previous year. The first volume was a great selection of excerpts and complete stories, so I can only imagine that this will be the same. (Also check out the David Eggers-edited Best American Non-Essential Reading, which is primarily prose but usually has at least one or two comic stories in it as well. Great anthology of off-the-wall and different writings.)

KILLER VOL 1 HC KILLER HC
It’s a first-person narrated book about a professional assassin who wants to just make enough money to finally retire to his island. He’s a sociopath that you can’t help but want to read about, that rare book about a villain that is still compelling reading.

Now on to what is probably the anti-matter version of Dave Eggers…Batman! Seriously, if Batman and Dave Eggers shook hands the universe would implode. To the McSweeney’s cave for my superhero picks!

BATMAN #669BATMAN #669
This is the third and final chapter of the so-far superb “Club of Heroes” storyline. The Batmen of Many Nations have gathered in one place and what should happen? Murder, of course. Good thing the World’s Greatest Detective is around. Grant Morrison has been on target with this story but J.H. Williams III is the star of this show. He takes advantage of the comics form like no one else drawing superhero stuff these days and the results speak for themselves. Extra deluxe recommended.

IMMORTAL IRON FIST #9 and IMMORTAL IRON FIST ANNUAL #1
Is this too much IRON FIST? IRON FIST is definitely awesome, but it’s like eating a whole cheesecake! Mmmm…cheesecake. I’m gonna go eat some cheesecake now. Check out the rest of the list below.
