Every week I review Diamond's “New Releases” to determine what I’ll definitely be buying sight unseen, what I’m interested in enough to do a quick scan of at the LCS to see if it can win me over, and note any other items that catch my eye. Here’s a look…
DMZ #45 (DC/Vertigo): Dig that John Paul Leon cover! This is the start of a new arc that suggests big changes for Matty Roth. I've been re-reading the DMZ trades from the start; I'm about half way through the third one, and it's been interesting to appreciate all over again how fresh and edgy this book really is. My interest and excitement feels quite renewed.
Wednesday Comics #10 (DC): We're on the home stretch now, I'm curious to see if anyone's saved up their tricks for the end or if their collective wads have all been blown early.
Nothing! I keep poring over the Diamond list, but it all feels a few sandwiches short of a picnic at the moment.
Art Of Tony Millionaire HC (Dark Horse): Another of Cheval Noir's gorgeous oversized hardcover art books. It's really tempting. Wasn’t another edition of Billy Hazelnuts supposed to come out this year?
