The Beguiling Recommends:

SEP100406 Danny Husk: The Hollow Planet Gn 19.99 
SCOTT. THOMPSON. Yes, that Scott Thompson, from Kids in the Hall. He’s written his first graphic novel, and it features his character Danny Husk. It’s hilarious, and I’m only a few pages in. Seriously, don’t miss it.

MAY100481 King City #12 2.99 – The last issue of the excellent euro/manga/U.S. comics hybrid series, and one of our favourites of the past few years.

OCT100442 Marineman #1 3.99 – A striking new undersea adventure hero in an appealing art style from Image.

DEC090037 Achewood HC Vol 03 Home For Scared People 16.99 – Yes, that is–in fact–a December 09 code. But ACHEWOOD is so awesome that it’s utterly worth the wait.

SEP100285 Planetary TP Book 04 Spacetime Archaeology 17.99 – The Complete series, now available in trade paperback.

AUG101178 Tezuka Ayako GN 26.95 – Any other week and this would be the pick of the week, but the idea of Scott Thompson writing a KITH-related graphic novel kind of blew my mind a little bit, so… But as for this one, it’s a generational saga of abuse, neglect, and declining fortunes following World War II. It’s a massive 700page hardcover, one of Tezuka’s most mature works, and by all accounts a great, difficult read. Don’t miss it.
