The Beguiling Recommends:

APR110412 Rodd Racer One Shot 7.99
Remember when, seemingly out of nowhere, that awesome book Mesmo Delivery came out, by this astounding artist Rafael Grampa? And it was just this amazing, artistic tour de force, a fun/violent little story, and you were totally happy to find something new and cool at The Beguiling?

Yeah, this is like that, except this dude’s name is Toby Cypress. Don’t miss it.

DEC100966 Wandering Son HC Vol 01  19.99
A sophisticated and literary manga, addressing an important subject with a delicate touch–pretty much a guaranteed winner for me. That this book–about two transgendered teens coming to accept their identities and their place in the world–is also popularly and critically acclaimed, a bestseller in Japan, and has already spawned anime adaptations? Icing on the cake. Really looking forward to this!

Fun fact: Fantagraphics had copies of this at their booth at TCAF, and it was their first book to sell out at the show. By a wide margin.

Also of note this week:
MAY110918 Elric The Balance Lost #1 3.99 – New Michael Moorcock!
MAY110572 Fear Itself #4 (of 7) Fear 3.99
MAY110162 Flashpoint #3 3.99
APR110294 Locke & Key HC Vol 04 Keys To The Kingdom 24.99
MAY110333 Locke & Key TP Vol 03 Crown Of Shadows 19.99
APR110247 Northlanders TP Vol 05 Metal  17.99
APR110666 Scarlet Prem HC Book One  24.99
MAR110065 Magic Knight Rayearth Dh Omnibus Ed Vol 01   19.99
APR111227 Mameshiba On The Loose GN  6.99
APR111228 Meet Mameshiba GN  6.99

Those Mameshiba are original stories, based on strange/unsettling short Japanese cartoons. If the books are as funny as the animation, they should be fantastic. 🙂 Check out one of my favourites:
