Bone HC. Full Colour. All In One. 3 Pewter Figures. A Phoney Bone-head coin. 3 Bonus books. Limited. Signed. Amazing.

MAY111196 Any Empire HC  19.95
– I’ve greatly enjoyed all of Nate Powell’s work to date, and his most recent, Swallow Me Whole, was probably his most poigniant, important, and affecting work to date. Powell returns with Any Empire, a treatise of teen violence, guns, and America… it’s going to be an amazing book.  and I am looking forward to this one even more.

MAY111079 Like A Sniper Lining Up His Shot HC  18.99
– A new one from Jacques Tardi, an extrordinarily bleak noir thriller. If you’re digging Criminal and want to know what to read next, don’t miss Tardi’s work–he’s a master of the form.

APR111036 Mome GN Vol 22 Spring 2011 19.99
– The FINAL volume of MOME, the great white hope for aspiring cartoonists to get published at Fantagraphics. An excellent overall anthology with moments of true greatness–the comics industry is much poorer for the loss of this fine publication. Our sincere thanks to Fanta and Eric Reynolds for 22 volumes of this series. We highly recommend them.

In this final, double sized volume, thrill to new comics by Gabrielle Bell, Lilli Carre, Jordan Crane, Eleanor Davis, Tom K, Anders Nilsen, Laura Park, Jim Rugg, and a dozen more excellent cartoonists.

MAY111239 Randomveus HC Vol 01  29.99
The very first original graphic novel from UDON, best known for their Street Fighter comics and translated art books. Artist Jeffrey “Chamba” Cruz unleashes a pop-art world of interdimensional couriers, dangerous madmen, and a dude with a giant pompadour. It’s a lot of fun, a solid girst graphic novel, and it’s gorgeously produced in a 9×12, oversized HC.

JUN110412 Rocketeer Adventures #4 (of 4) 3.99
– The final issue of this excellent mini-series, with some of the best illustrators in the biz paying homage to Dave Stevens and his creation. This issue includes art by Scott Hampton, Tony Harris, Brendan McCarthy, and pinups by Ashley Wood.

JUN110559 Skullkickers #10 2.99
– Our very good friend Jim Zub’s SKULLKICKERS makes it to issue #10, thereby beating Battle Chasers in the issue numbering sweepstakes. So it’s sticking around is what we’re saying. So give it a shot! Oh, and if you need further incentive, Jim and series artist Edwin Huang were in the store last week and signed up all of our back issues, and I think we’ve got #1-#9 in stock now!

Also of Note:
JUN110010 Angel & Faith #1 Jo Chen Cvr  6.00
JUN110009 Angel & Faith #1 Steve Morris Cvr  2.99
– Angel makes the jump from IDW to Dark Horse in this ‘cannon’ story, plotted by Whedon and written by Christos Gage. Nice art on this one from Rebecca Issacs too, and this series will run in parallel to the upcoming Buffy Season 9. If you’d given up on the previous Angel series but kept grabbing Buffy, don’t miss this one.

MAY110045 Chimichanga HC  14.99
– Eric “The Goon” Powell’s incredibly weird book about a little girl and a circus freakshow gets a lovely and inexpensive hard cover collection. I know some of the “Goon” regulars missed out on this, check it out now that it’s only $15!

JUN110888 Chronicles Of Wormwood Last Battle #6 (of 6)   4.99
– This is the long, long-delayed conclusion to Garth Ennis’ epic battle between Heaven & Hell. Looking forward to seeing how it ends.

APR110040 Drifters Vol 01   12.99
– New series from the creator of Hellsing!

APR110039 Eden TP Vol 13 Its An Endless World   12.99

JUN110178 Flashpoint #5 (of 5) 3.99
JUL110187 Justice League #1 3.99
– The DC Universe ends in Flashpoint #5, and is born anew in Justice League #1! And don’t worry folks, we’ve still got lots of copies of both.

MAY110050 Last Dragon HC 29.99
– This is a gorgeously drawn, full colour fantasy graphic novel from acclaimed author Jane Yolen (Owl Moon, Sword of the Rightful King) and celebrated fantasy artist Rebecca Guay (Magic: The Gathering). This is really, really pretty if you’re into that sort of thing.

MAY110048 Little Lulu Pal Tubby Vol 04 Atomic Violin & Other Stories 15.99
– Look, more!

JUN110952 Planet o/t Apes #5 1.00

JUL110956 The Rinse #1 1.00

APR111062 Route Des Maisons Rouges #5 (of 6)  2.99

JUL111141 Three Thieves GN Vol 02 Sign o/t Black Rock 8.95

– Congrats to Scott Chantler on the second volume of his excellent all-ages fantasy adventure series Three Thieves. Looking for something for yourself or your kids now that Bone has finished? Check this series out, you won’t be disappointed.

APR110340 Transformers Classics TP Vol 01 24.99
– I’m a Transformers fan from way back… Waaaaay back. They were the first comics I ever read. So the fact that this volume reprints Issues 1-13, inclusive, INCLUDING THE SPIDER-MAN crossover…? And it’s 300+ pages? And… and it’s got Optimus Prime and not that stupid Michael Bay robortion. Anyway, yeah. I don’t often feel the need to re-buy my childhood but, sadly, I am making an exception in this case.

Lotsa stuff this week!
