Picks of the Week: 10/17

Here are our picks for what books will most likely be worth the price of admission, coming this Wednesday to a comic shop near you...

Patrick's Pick:

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: The Long Way Home TPB - This trade paperback collects the first five issues of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Eight comic book series. The first four issues, written by Joss Whedon with art by Georges Jeanty, comprise the “Long Way Home” story arc and lay the foundation for the entire season eight project, while the fifth issue is a standalone story, also written by Whedon and drawn by guest artist Paul Lee. That fifth issue is my favorite, but it’s all good, all well worth your time. Covers to the individual issues are included.

Dave's Pick:
The Sword #1 - I'm not sure what this book is about, but the series creators The Luna Brothers, have written some of the best genre comics of the past few years including Girls and one of my favorite superhero comics ever, Ultra: Seven Days. This book is definitely worth a look.
