In Stores 4/16

Patrick and I pick out the books with the most potential coming to comic shops this Wednesday...
.
Dave's Pick
.
Hellboy Library Edition (Volume 1) - It's a pretty light week for major releases in the world of comics, but this caught my eye. A nice deluxe edition of Mike Mignola's first two Hellboy stories, Seed of Destruction and Wake the Devil. Nice for the bookshelf, and timely, with the new Hellboy movie coming out this summer.

The Drifting Classroom (Volume 11) - Last week, the final volume of the excellent Dragon Head was released to comic book shops. This week, another horror manga reaches its conclusion with this final volume in Kazuo Umezu’s insane saga about a group of schoolchildren transported to a nightmarish, post-apocalyptic future world. David reviewed both books yesterday.
