There’s a handful of interesting books out this time around, but it looks like it’s going to be Brandon Graham’s week. He’s got his brilliant reimaging of 90’s detritus in Prophet #30 (Image) and the long-awaited second volume of one of his creator-owned series out with Multiple Warheads: Alphabet to Infinity #1 (Image). Matt Kindt’s Mind MGMT #6 (Dark Horse) also hits the shelves. I’m very curious to see what Shaolin Cowboy Adventure Magazine (Dark Horse) is all about since I really loved Geoff Darrow’s original Shaolin Cowboy run from the Wachowski backed Burlyman Entertainment, which seemed to come and go under everyone’s radar a few years ago. Lastly, I’ll note the FreakAngels Complete Collected Slipcase Edition (Avatar Press). This is all 6 volumes of the Warren Ellis and Paul Duffield series chronicling 12 young kids in a post-apocalyptic flooded London, holed up in the infamous Whitechapel. It’s really the first major web-comic experiment I saw that successfully gauged interest and demand to transition to print with equal gusto. It’s $99.99 for 864 pages, and while I generally am in favor of supporting your creator/publisher/retailer ecosystem, if you’re on a tight budget it’s currently being offered for $41.94 (42% off) w/ free shipping at Amazon.
