The Beguiling Recommends:

MAR110822 Even The Giants GN   9.95
– An excellent TCAF debut book ships through Diamond this week. I really, really liked this indy, arty work by Canadian cartoonist Jesse Jacobs. A collection of seemingly unrelated and strange short stories builds into something really unique and affecting. Gorgeous little collection too. 

Also of note this week:

MAR118139 Butcher Baker Righteous Maker #2 Var Cvr 2nd Ptg  2.99
MAR110573 Butcher Baker Righteous Maker #3  2.99
– Casey and Hawthorne’s violent, sexy, over-the-top superhero send-up gets a third on-time issue. Issues 1 & 2 also in stock.

MAR110267 Green Lantern #66 (war Of Gl) 2.99
MAR110269 Green Lantern Corps #60 (war Of Gl) 2.99
MAR110271 Green Lantern Emerald Warriors #10 (war Of Gl) 2.99
– DC are shipping the final three parts of the War of the Green Lanterns story-arc this week. So if you are a GL fan I guess you’ll have no choice but to come by this week eh?

MAR111016 Kirby Genesis #0 1.00
– Alex Ross and Kurt Busiek reimagine all of the Kirby-created characters not in thrall to major multinational corporations. We probably did not order enough of this, seeing as it is a dollar. A reorder is already placed.

MAR110598 Skullkickers #7 2.99
– Jim Zub & Edwin Huang’s SKULLKICKERS returns after a brief (planned!) hiatus to see a MAJOR NEW STATUS QUO FOR THE BOOK! Heh. At any rate, Issues 1-6 and the trade paperback are all currently in stock.

MAR110379 Strange Adventures #1  7.99
– Vertigo’s best and brightest on a new anthology series. Issue #1 features our good friend Jeff Lemire, as well as Azzarello, Milligan, Paul Pope on cover, and more.

MAR110601 Super Dinosaur #2 2.99
– I’m really enjoying this new series from Robert Kirkman. If you want to try it out guilt-free, we’ve still got some copies left of the Free Comic Book Day sampler. Check it out.

MAR111388 Alter Ego #101  7.95
FEB111254 Back Issue #48  7.95

– Bit of a mix-up a few weeks back on the new issue of Back Issue magazine. We’ve got them in now though, thanks for your patience.

MAR111279 Mega Man Gigamix TP Vol 01  12.95
– Hitoshi Ariga’s awesome continuation of the Mega Man universe in manga format. Pretty excited about this one.

MAR111190 Anthology Project HC Vol 02   29.95
– This collection of North American illustrators and fine artists doing unique comics projects actually made an early appearance at TCAF. If you missed it, make sure to come by and grab it this week.

JAN111358 Atelier Series Official Chronicle SC  39.99
Another gorgeous art book from UDON.
