Picks of the Week: 11/21

Picking out the most promising comics of the week...

Dave’s Pick:

Beyond Palomar (Palomar Volume 3) TP - These new collections of Gilbert Hernandez’ Palomar saga are great: accessible to new readers, beautifully packaged and, of course, containing some of the best comics ever produced. Collected in this particular volume is Love & Rockets X, and the fantastic backstory of Luba, Poison River.

Patrick’s Pick:

Angel: After the Fall #1 - Well, here it is. Those who’ve followed my writing on this blog know I’m a great fan of the Dark Horse published Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season Eight comic book, so it should come as no surprise that I’m really looking forward to IDW’s “official” continuation of Angel in this twelve-issue series. Joss Whedon is not as intimately involved with the production of this series as he is with the Buffy comic, but he did work closely with writer Brian Lynch (of Spike: Shadow Puppets fame, which I’ve not read) to develop the story. Franco Urru provides the artwork.
