Books shipping to comic shops this week that you may want to give a second glance...
:01 Second Books' first wave of titles appeared in bookstores last week, but this Wednesday they make their comic shop debut with titles such as A.L.I.E.E.E.N., The Fate of the Artist and Vampire Loves.
Samurai: Heaven and Earth TP - Collecting the five-issue mini-series from Dark Horse, this Ron Marz/Luke Ross title looks just amazing, about a samurai who's fighting to be reunited with his love.
Girls (volume 2): Emergence TP - The Luna Brothers' Image series gets a second trade! I love the Luna Brothers. While I much preferred Ultra to Girls, Girls was still one of my favorite books of last year and it's been too long since the last collection came out.
Skrull Kill Krew TP - Anything coming out from Grant Morrison is exciting. This mini-series came out years ago, so you know, Marvel had to capitalize on him now that he's DC-exclusive.
Nymph GN - Frank Thorne's latest graphic novel, from Fantagraphics, follows a young woman among travelling players, who perform a show of live sex and burlesque. Looks beautiful.
Ultimate Spider-man (volume 15): Silver Sable TP - I've really loved the most recent arcs of Ultimate Spider-man. Silver Sable's one of my favorite obscure female characters that I've developed an attachment to, so this one was extra special.
Borrowed Time (volume 1) - The first in a series of graphic novels from Oni Press, Borrowed Time is about a man who leaves behind his perfect life to accompany a ship to the Bermuda Triangle, and how he strives to get that life back.
