The Beguiling Recommends…
NOV084306 NAOKI URASAWA 20TH CENTURY BOYS GN VOL 01 12.99 NOV084307 PLUTO URASAWA X TEZUKA GN VOL 01 12.99
As of writing, we’re sold out of Naoki Urasawa’s 20th Century Boys Volume 1, and I’ve got like 1 or 2 copies left of Pluto. We’ll have more on Wednesday, and more again later. But yeah, so far everyone who’s read either book says that they 1) Awesome. and 2) Better than Monster. And you know, I really liked Monster. So, that gets bumped up to the must-buy level.
DEC083834 DAYBREAK GN VOL 03 10.00
Hey, have you been following this new graphic novel series from Brian Ralph? I totally love Brian Ralph, he was the first cartoonist whose work I really “discovered” when I started working at The Beguiling, with Cave-In and Climbing Out. This series, a sort of post-apocalyptic survivalist book set in the first-person, is incredibly compelling and tense, but still has that sense of play that makes Ralph’s comics so interesting. We should have all of the previous volumes in stock on the main floor (D&Q rack) right now, and the third volume this week.
DEC080184 MYSTERIUS THE UNFATHOMABLE #2 (OF 6) 2.99
In January we held an in-store signing for the first issue of this series, which sold really well and got great customer feedback! So if you’re on the fence, be sure to check out this second issue from Agents of Atlas writer Jeff Parker, and our good friend artist Tom Fowler.
OCT084496 COMIC FOUNDRY MAGAZINE WINTER 2008 5.98
The last issue of Comic Foundry ships this week, with a cover feature on Mr. Bryan Lee O’Malley. Unfortunately I totally underordered this. We’ll likely sell out quick, but we will have more the following week. My apologies.
Also of note…
NOV082254 DYNAMO 5 #0 0.99: The Image superhero ongoing series gets an inexpensive introductary issue. If you happen to be a superhero comics fan dissatisfied with how your superhero comics are going lately, you should check this one out.
DEC084296 STREET FIGHTER IV #1 (OF 4) TSNAG CVR A 3.95: The day after the North American release of the new Street Fighter 4 video game, our friends at UDON are dropping the first issue of their adaptation of the game plot. I know, I know, no one really believes that Street Fighter has a plot, but it does and it’s actually a lot of fun.
DEC083882 ZOMBIES THAT ATE THE WORLD #1 DAVIS CVR A (MR) 3.50: Fans rejoice! It’s Guy ‘BPRD’ Davis doing a zombie comic! The first few installments of this one ran a year or two back in the METAL HURLANT magazine co-published by DC and Humanoids, but the serial was never completed. Now it will be, in comic book (and eventual graphic novel) form.
