In Stores 5/17

And once again, a look at some books coming to comic stores tomorrow. You can see the full list of Diamond's releases at their website.

Castle Waiting HC - From Fantagraphics comes a collection of the entire Castle Waiting series by Linda Medley in one hardcover volume.

Wonderland #1 - Amaze Inc/Slave Labor Graphics presents a tale of what happened in Wonderland following Alice's departure from the kingdom. Nice art, could be neat.

X-Men: Firestar Digest TP - I don't know why Marvel's collecting this Firestar four-issue mini-series. They may be experimenting to see if people will buy these older throwaway series in this sort of format, or maybe they want to capitalize on Firestar's involvement in the upcoming The Beyond series. Either way, it was kind of strange seeing the solicitation for this. But, hell, it's only $8.

Krazy & Ignatz 1937 - 1938: Shifting Sands Dusts Cheek Powdered - George Herriman's comic strip continues with a really pretty cover this month.

X-Men Fairy Tales #1 (of 4) - Taking a cue from the old "Kitty's Fairy Tale" story from the classic Uncanny X-Men story, a mini-series, featuring a different artist with each issue, will place the X-Men in different worlds and situations to retell classic myths.
