Picks of the Week: 4/30

Patrick and I pick out the books with the most potential, shipping to comic shops tomorrow!

Patrick's Pick

Thoreau at Walden - I can’t imagine this isn’t going to be excellent. John Porcellino offers his take on the life of Henry David Thoreau, in the second in a series of comics format biographies sponsored by the Center for Cartoon Studies. Porcellino is unquestionably one of our finest living cartoonists, and this project seems tailor made to his sensibilities. I can’t wait to read it.

Dave's Pick

Dororo (Volume 1) - Any week where a new Osama Tezuka book comes out is a good week. This newest translation is the first of three volumes from the good folks at Vertical, who were responsible for other handsome Tezuka manga being make available in America, such as Apollo's Song and Ode To Kirihito.

Other Noteworthy Releases

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Omnibus (Volume 4)
