New Comic Book Releases For November 23 2016
New Comic Book Releases For November 23 2016
The question most often asked of the ComicsAlliance staff is a variation of, “Which comic books should I be reading?” or, “I’m new to comics, what’s a good place to start?” The Wednesday deluge of new comic books, graphic novels and collected editions can be daunting even for the longtime reader, much less for those totally unfamiliar with creators, characters and publishers, and the dark mysteries of comic book shopping like variants, pre-ordering, and formats. It’s with these challenges in mind that we’ve created Best Comic Books Ever (This Week), an ongoing guide curated by the ComicsAlliance staff. This is where new comics readers and seasoned Wednesday shoppers alike can find our picks of the best books the medium has to offer.
The Eternal Underdog: Jim Rugg Talks 'Street Angel' Reprint
The Eternal Underdog: Jim Rugg Talks 'Street Angel' Reprint
Since it first hit the stands in 2004, I've gone through three or four copies of Street Angel. It's on my short-list of favorite comics -- one of those books I've lent and given away over and over, gambling that I could find another copy, a process that's taken longer and longer as it fell further and further out of print. Luckily for me -- and the whole new generation of readers who didn't catch it the first time around -- Street Angel is back, in a hella sweet hardcover edition from AdHouse Books (who hooked me up with a review copy, which I will do my best to hang on to for at least a few months this time around).
Farel Dalrymple’s ‘Delusional’ Coming In September [Preview]
Farel Dalrymple’s ‘Delusional’ Coming In September [Preview]
Whether he's creating his own comics and illustrations from scratch or contributing to anthologies or magazines, Farel Dalrymple is just plain prolific. He's always releasing something and it's always worth checking out. This is both a blessing and a -- well, certainly not a curse -- but maybe a slight inconvenience when it comes to tracking down everything the artist releases. Come September, AdHouse will come to the aid of completists with Delusional, a 232-page, 6x9" hardcover collecting a number of comics and illustrations many fans of the Pop Gun War, Prophet, Omega the Unknown, Vice Magazine and Study Group artist may not have had the chance to check out just yet. Not one to keep fans in suspense, AdHouse has released a generous 23-page preview, which serves as a solid cross section of the upcoming hardcover's contents. You can take in all the Dalrymple goodness, after the cut.
