In Stores 10/4

Books new to comic stores this coming Wednesday that you may want to give a second look (and there are quite a few) ...

The Complete Peanuts (Volume 6): 1961-1962 HC - Charles Schultz' masterpiece continues into its peak period.

Best American Comics 2006 - An anthology edited by Harvey Pekar and Anne Elizabeth Moore, featuring the works of Lynda Barry, Chris Ware, Joe Sacco, Robert Crumb, Jaime Hernandez and more.

Y-the Last Man #50 - The book that put Brian K. Vaughan on the map reaches a milestone, as the culprit behind the plague that killed all of the men on Earth is revealed.

Nightmare On Elm Street #1 - Chuck Dixon's new series based on a horror icon debuts this week. A little early for Halloween, but it'll help get you in the mood...

Doctor Strange: The Oath #1 - Brian K. Vaughan's new mini-series, with art by Marcos Martin, follows Marvel's resident sorcerer.

Doctor Strange vs. Dracula: The Montesi Formula TP - An interesting idea for a collection from Marvel, as they collect the battles between the good doctor and his supernatural nemesis.

Irredeemable Ant-Man #1 - A new Marvel ongoing that follows the universe's smallest superhero, from the minds of Robert Kirkman (Invincible) and Phil Hester (Firebreather). Should be fun.

Emma (Volume 1) TP - Koaru Mori's manga series, set in the Victorian Era and perfect for Jane Austen fans (like me!) makes its American debut.

Chicken With Plums - Marjane Satrapi (of Persepolis fame) releases a new graphic novel!

Dragon Head (Volume 4) TP - The latest installment of the suspenseful survivalist tale continues!

Nana (Volume 4) TP - And last but not least, another volume of the wonderful, charming book serialized in Shojo Beat.
