In Stores 3/19

Patrick and I pick the comics shipping to comic shops this Wednesday with the most potential.

Patrick's Pick
.
Phoenix (Vol. 12): Early Works - Anytime a new book by manga legend Osamu Tezuka drops, there’s a good chance it’s going to be the most significant new release that week, and that certainly seems to be the case this week. This final volume of Viz’s publication of Tezuka’s unfinished masterpiece is really more of an addendum, collecting early versions of the story put out by Tezuka before it’s official beginning in the work collected in the first volume of the Phoenix series.

Strangeways: Murder Moon GN - I've been looking forward to this one for awhile, since it never saw the light of day under Speakeasy Comics. But it's here now, courtesy of writer Matthew Maxwell's Highway 62 Press, featuring the delicious combination of werewolves in the Old West. Check out the first chapter here.
