This Week’s New Releases and Recommendations

Welcome to another Wednesday Thursday! We’re rocking the New Releases and Recommendations post in a new fashion today. Indies vs. Superheroes! Greg McElhatton vs. Kevin Panetta! The Fight o’ the Century!

In this corner! Representing indie comics! Greg “The Marathon Man” McElhatton!

LaikaLAIKA SC $17.95

Now, you might be thinking, “Greg, this is a book about a dog. Do you think I’m five years old?” Well, trust me, this is so not a book for five year olds. Part fiction, but mostly non-fiction, it’s the story of the dog that the Soviets sent up into orbit during the great space race between the USSR and the US. I actually got to read an advance copy of Laika and it’s nothing short of spectacular, absolutely enthralling as the book focuses not only on the dog that is sent on its one-way trip into orbit but also about the people working on the space program. You really need to check this book out.

Process Recess 2PROCESS RECESS 2: PORTFOLIO SC (MR) $29.95

You may know James Jean from his amazing covers on books like Fables, Green Arrow, and Batgirl, to name a few. They’re gorgeous and fluid, the sort of cover that just grabs your attention no matter what the subject material. When AdHouse Books published Process Recess, Jean’s first art book, it was an eye-opening experience of amazing (and sometimes disturbing) creativity. Now volume two is hitting stores, and I’m expecting it to be lots more of the same. There’s only a handful of cover artists whose work really does stop people dead in their tracks, but Jean is totally that caliber of artist. For art lovers out there, you can’t miss this.

…and in this corner! Fighting out of Fawcett City! Kevin “The Quetzalcoatl Kid” Panetta!

Amazing Spidey #544AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #544 $3.99

Spider-Man has many abilities. He can climb walls, shoot webs from his hands…umm….did I say climb walls? He also has the ability to be in mourning because his aunt was shot after he revealed his identity! Now, he’ll do anything to keep her alive. So begins the new Spider-Man event, One More Day. Sure, it sounds like what Back in Black was supposed to be, but Spider-Man also has the ability to be in 534 crossovers in a 365 day period! The thing is, this first issue of One More Day was actually pretty solid. I don’t know where it’s going, but I’m willing to stick with it and find out.

Jack Kirby's Thingamajig #2JACK KIRBY’S FOURTH WORLD OMNIBUS VOL 2 HC $49.99

The New Gods are popping up all over the place these days in the DCU. From COUNTDOWN to DEATH OF THE NEW GODS, Kirby’s creations are ever-present. If you want to find out what all the hub-bub is about, you should seriously consider taking a look at the FOURTH WORLD OMNIBUS series. Four books that will collect Kirby’s entire original run of New Gods/Fourth World material. I really shouldn’t have to tell you how good this thing is. Really. I’m totally cereal.

Don’t forget to click on “more” to see the complete list of stuff coming out this week. Seriously. Your clicks will help us pay our doctor bills.
