Just a quick note, we broke the trade paperbacks into two sections, superhero and not superhero, because there were so many of them. Seriously, this week is monstrously huge. A lot of this stuff came out to west-coast accounts last week, so it looks like those of us in Canada and the east coast get a ‘double week’ for new product. Hope you’ve got a few extra bucks saved…
The Beguiling Recommends…
JAN101075 POSSESSIONS GN VOL 01 UNCLEAN GETAWAY 5.99
We’re really excited to see this one! Possessions is a new graphic novel by Torontonian Ray Fawkes, and it was actually previewed in the Free Comic Book Day comic we put out last year COMICS FESTIVAL! It’s a kids comic that’s actually evil, about a little girl that’s possessed by a demon, and is taken to a special school for same. It’s totally kid-safe, but also hilarious for readers of all ages.
JAN100072 GUILD #1 (OF 3) CARY NORD CVR 3.50
JAN100073 GUILD #1 (OF 3) JEANTY CVR 3.50
I’m gonna be honest, I haven’t watched the smash-hit online comedy series “The Guild” myself, it’s a little outside of my range of interest, but I do really like its star Felicia Day from Dr. Horrible
, so it’s been on my list of things to check out for a while now… At any rate, much like their hyper-successful Buffy comics, and their hyper-successful Joss Whedon one shots, we’re kinda betting that this three issue series is going to be… very popular amongst folks who might not otherwise be coming into comic book stores. So we’ve got it here for you, in quantity! Enjoy! Tell your friends and the other 1.6 million people
that have viewed the show on Youtube. 😉
Follow-up: Just finished the first 5 episodes. It’s fun stuff, I get it. Especially if you like your nerd humour. 🙂
DEC090043 BOOK OF GRICKLE HC (C: 0-1-2) 17.99
Hey folks! Our friend and TCAF exhibitor Graham Annable has a brand-new collection of his work available! Includes all kinds of new and bonus material, and is generally awesome. 200 pages for 18 bucks in hardcover! Buy it and laugh! Buy it and get it signed at TCAF! But do make sure to buy it…
JAN100798 SIMPSONS FUTURAMA CROSSOVER CRISIS SLIPCASE HC (C: 24.95
You may or may not believe this, but I got to see an advance copy of this and it’s awesome. Like beautifully put together. Features the comics-only crossover between the characters, as well as a ton of awesome pinups in the back. If you’re so inclined, this is a hell of a neat item.
FEB100869 BLACK BLIZZARD GN 19.95
As mentioned in its own post last week, this is great, Yoshihiro Tatsumi’s breakthrough work from 1956 in a gorgeous archival edition… pick it up.
FEB101094 HEY PRINCESS GN (MR) (C: 0-1-2) 14.95
This is the first in Top Shelf’s new line of Swedish graphic novels, following their anthology release last year. It’s by Mats Johnson, and apparently it’s about the author’s ‘funny and pathetic’ adolescence, so for those of you into painfully awkward humour this looks to be right up your alley.
JAN101200 ART OF JAIME HERNANDEZ SECRETS OF LIFE & DEATH HC 40.00
Apparently this is everything you want out of a Jamie Hernandez art book… and more. I’ve heard some real raves. Looking forward to seeing it myself…!
Also of Note…
NOV090846 LOCKE & KEY CROWN OF SHADOWS #3 3.99
DEC090937 LOCKE & KEY CROWN OF SHADOWS #4 3.99
Hey, so we were shorted our complete order of Locke & Key: Crown of Shadows #3, but we got replacements… the same week that #4 comes out. So, sorry about that, but hey, at least you get twice as much Locke & Key this week!
DEC090413 ORC STAIN #2 (MR) 2.99
I really dug the first issue of this, awesome art and a fun, old-school Heavy Metal mag kinda story. It’s good times.
JAN100950 COMPLETE PEANUTS HC VOL 13 1975-1976 (C: 0-0-1) 28.99
It’s another Peanuts collection! Hurrah!
JAN100633 NEMESIS #1 (OF 4) (MR) 2.99
Hey it’s a new Mark Millar comic.
SEP090040 CHOBITS DARK HORSE OMNIBUS ED VOL 01 (C: 0-1-2) 24.99
Hey, look! Dark Horse is doing omnibus editions of CLAMP stuff! CLOVER came out last year, and now here’s CHOBITS, featuring the first four individual volumes of that series for 25 bucks, that’s a steal.
NOV090582 ANIMAL CRACKERS A GENE LUEN YANG COLLECTION TP 14.95
Speaking of omnibi, this is a collection of Gene Yang’s first two solo-graphic novels, before he completed his acclaimed American Born Chinese. Published by SLG, these two books also feature magical realism and people learning lessons and are generally very good, though (admittedly…) pretty weird. $15 is a pretty cheap buy-in too. Check it out.
JAN100726 ARCHIE WEDDING TP ARCHIE IN WILL YOU MARRY ME 14.95
Wow, they got that out pretty quick.
DEC090662 DAYS MISSING HC VOL 01 W/ DUST JACKET (C: 0-1-2) 19.95
JUN090690 KILLER HC VOL 02 W/ DUST JACKET (MR) (C: 0-1-2) 24.95
JUL090673 OKKO HC VOL 01 CYCLE OF WATER W/ DUST JACKET NEW P 19.95
AUG090640 ROBOTIKA HC VOL 02 W/ DUST JACKET (MR) (C: 0-1-2) 19.95
OCT090696 SECRET HISTORY OMNIBUS HC W/ DUST JACKET (MR) (C: 34.95
Archaia released 5 graphic novels solicited over a period of 7 months on the same day. There’s some good work here, don’t get me wrong, but seriously? VERY UNPROFESSIONAL ARCHAIA. NOT A NICE THING TO STICK YOUR CUSTOMERS OR YOUR RETAIL PARTNERS WITH.
SEP090286 I KILL GIANTS TITAN ED HC VOL 01 39.99
SEP090287 I KILL GIANTS TITAN ED HC VOL 01 LTD S/N ED 50.00

NOV090861 KRAZY & IGNATZ HC TIGER TEA 12.99
Collecting a storyline from the Krazy & Ignatz series that will eventually be collected in the Fantagraphics editions…
JAN101198 WACKY PACKAGES NEW NEW NEW HC (C: 0-1-2) 19.95
Can’t remember if this is a new edition of that Wacky Packages book, or simply a sequel… Either way, the first one had some amazing packaging and reproduction, nifty little book.
