This week, comics ship to comic shops on Thursday, and what a week it is! Dozens of things I've been waiting for months to come out have finally arrived, including the much-delayed Giant-Size Astonishing X-Men #1 and the final issue of Gilbert Hernandez's Speak of the Devil. That's not to mention all of the crazy collections like Skyscrapers of the Midwest! I could easily go broke this week. Anyways, here are the highlights...
Pick of the Week
What It Is HC - Lynda Barry is hands-down one of the best creators in the biz, so it's certainly call for celebration that she is releasing some new material, even if I know next to nothing about it. I did hear that her Ernie Pook's Comeek strips are getting a nice collected treatment pretty soon too, which will be nice.
