In Stores 11/7

Where we point you in the direction of (potentially) good comics!

Patrick's Pick:

Joss Whedon Comic Books - Celebrate the announcement of Joss Whedon’s new television series with two of the man’s comic books, both out this week. While not actually written by Whedon, Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Eight #8 is in the midst of a very good storyline written by Brian K. Vaughan with art by series regular Georges Jeanty, while Astonishing X-Men #23 is the penultimate issue of Whedon’s and artist John Cassaday’s run on the series, before they take their final bow with a giant sized annual. Too bad Runaways isn’t out this week, too…

Dave's Pick:

Azumanga Daioh Omnibus (Volume 1) GN - Since I didn't get around to doing my usual Manga Monday post this week, you don't know how much I loved the first volume of the fan-favorite super-cute manga Yotsuba&! (watch for that next Monday). But there is going to be an omnibus edition of Yotsuba&! creator, Kiyohiko Azuma's, popular Azumanga Daioh. Azumanga Daioh is a comedy that follows a group of Japanese high school girls, and is told in "yonkoma" format, or in vertical four-panel comic strips. If I could do two picks (and I'm kind of doing that by doing this), I would also point you toward Vertigo/DC's Cairo HC.
