AUG110312 Star Trek Legion Of Superheroes #1 (of 6) 3.99

Please Note: Due to a shipping allocation, we are not getting our full order of Star Trek/Legion of Superheroes. I know, I know, but there’s nothing we can do, and we’ll hopefully get the rest of the copies next week. This affects all Canadian retailers for what it’s worth.

The Beguiling Recommends:

JUN111095 Ganges #4 7.95
Kevin Huizenga has blessed us all with another issue of Ganges, totally unexpected and entirely wonderful. Let’s not disappoint him. Issues 1-3 also available.

JUL111130 Metabarons Ultimate Coll Slip Case 129.95

This is coming out. It is LIMITED and it is EXPENSIVE and you already know whether or not you want it, so consider this a public service announcement. Come get it Wednesday, we’re open until 9pm.

AUG118073 Wonder Woman #1 2nd Ptg 2.99
AUG110166 Wonder Woman #2 2.99
Probably the best of all of the DC 52 relaunch books. We’ve got a bunch of #1s coming back, and even more #2s. If you’re not reading this one check it out, it’s good stuff.

MAR111330 Tezukas Black Jack TP Vol 16 16.95
Yes that is a March code, but who cares, I’m just happy to see Black Jack coming out on a regular basis again.

AUG111274 Yotsuba&! GN Vol 10 11.99
Hey, how about that? I totally forgot this one was coming out. A hilarious and charming manga series, as much fun for kids as adults.

JUL110278 Marzi TP 17.99
A very, very strange release for Vertigo in that it’s a European graphic novel, a non-fiction memoir, and it’s about growing up behind the iron curtain. Worth checking out.

AUG111068 Nursery Rhyme Comics 50 Timeless Rhymes HC 18.99

Although the “bookstore” release was last week, comic stores get a crack at this gorgeous, wonderful collection of Nursery Rhymes this week. Featuring work from as diverse and unique talents as Jamie & Gilbert Hernandez, Kate Beaton, and Mike Mignola. Don’t miss it.

Also of Note:

AUG110315 30 Days Of Night Ongoing #1 3.99
Other than DC’s new “I, Vampire” series there isn’t even one ongoing vampire comic right now. That’s a darned shame. At least until today. Might we invite you to join Steve Niles and Sam Keith on their new outing? Ongoing, no more weird mini-series numbering, and hey it’s Sam Keith on an ongoing book, that’s pretty cool.

AUG110192 Batman Odyssey Vol 2 #1 (of 7) 3.99
The most-crazy Batman story ever returns to finish out its run, courtesy of Neal Adams.

AUG110568 Fear Itself #7 (of 7) Fear 4.99
AUG110582 Fear Itself Fearless #1 (of 12) 2.99
AUG110572 Fear Itself Home Front #7 (of 7) Fear 3.99
AUG110576 Fear Itself Youth In Revolt #6 (of 6) Fear 2.99
Marvel’s Fear Itself mini-series wraps up this week, and leads into the new FEARLESS maxi-series. This has been one of the more enjoyable big crossovers in recent memory. I’m kind of enjoying seeing Captain America become unhinged, personally.

AUG110160 Justice League #2 3.99
There it is!

AUG110892 Key Of Z #1 (of 4) 3.99
I’ve been getting a truly ridicious number of press releases for this 4-issue zombie mini-series, so here’s hoping it’s worth all the hype eh?

JUL110882 Alan Moore Neonomicon HC 27.99
JUL110881 Alan Moore Neonomicon TP 19.99
For people that like this sort of thing, this is exactly the sort of thing that you like.

JUL110888 Freakangels HC Vol 06 27.99
JUL110889 Freakangels HC Vol 06 Ellis & Duffield Sgn Ed 39.99
JUL110887 Freakangels TP Vol 06 19.99
This is my favourite release schedule for tp/hc, btw.

JUL110296 Unwritten TP Vol 04 Leviathan 14.99
Day late and a dollar short, so far as our signing is concerned. But still totally worth getting. 🙂
