10.12.11 Releases

This week, I’ll be purchasing one of the few New 52 that I plan on sticking with in the form of Batwoman #2 (DC). If JH Williams III isn’t nominated for an Eisner Award in the Best Cover Artist category this year, it will be a shame. Northlanders #45 (DC/Vertigo) is also out, marking just 5 issues left of this powerful Brian Wood series. Speaking of Wood, I’m glad to see him included in this new DC anthology book. It’s called either Unexpected, The Unexpected, or Tales of the Unexpected, I’ve seen it listed various ways in various places, but umm… The Unexpected #1 (DC) has Brian Wood, Joshua Dysart, Rafael Grampa, Dave Gibbons, and more. It’s $7.99 for 80 pages and 9 stories of horror and suspense, just in time for Halloween. DC Comics Presents JLA: Age of Wonder #1 (DC) is an odd book, collecting a two issue story that’s basically a classic Elseworlds deal, written by Adi Tantimedh, with art by Galen Showman and P. Craig Russell. It looks like delicious historical fiction, so I’ll give that a flip. Lastly at DC, I’m curious to see what the 100 Bullets HC: Volume 01 (DC) looks like and how it does. Collecting the first 19 issues at $50 for 456 pages, it means there is still a sliver of hope that DMZ might ultimately get similar treatment. If Dark Horse’s success with musician-turned-writer Gerard Way is any indication, I’ll be checking out Orchid #1 (Dark Horse) from Tom Morello. On top of the creator pedigree, it’s got a post-apocalyptic thing happening and the introductory issue is a no risk $1. It’s also time again for the CBLDF Liberty Annual 2011 (Dark Horse), which is always worth a flip. I’m pleased to see another issue of Uncanny X-Force #16 (Marvel) on the stands. On the OGN front, it’s time for another edition of Naoki Urasawa’s epic, let’s call it “the Watchmen of Japan” as so many do, 20th Century Boys: Volume 17 (VizMedia).
