In Stores 4/2

Patrick and I highlight the books with most potential among the new releases to comic shops this Wednesday.

Patrick's Pick

Dragon Head (Volume 10) - Dragon Head is a solid work of survivalist horror fiction from writer/artist Minetaro Mochizuki, about a small group of high school students who survive a natural (possibly supernatural) disaster and must struggle against an unbelievably hostile environment to survive, hopefully with their humanity intact. Gritty, realistic artwork and great storytelling skills have made this one of the best of the current crop of translated manga. This is the final volume.

Dave's Pick

Secret Invasion #1 (of 8) - Marvel's latest mega crossover kicks it into high gear with this eight-issue mini-series, spinning out of events from New Avengers and bleeding across most of the Marvel Universe.

American Splendor: Season Two #1 (of 4)
Angel: After the Fall #6
Anna Mercury #1 (of 5) - Warren Ellis's latest Avatar effort
