New Comics Day

Brutal week!

Green Lantern
GL: Tales of the Corps
Power Girl
Wednesday Comics
Dethklok vs The Goon
You Have Killed Me
Parker, The Hunter

Two amazing graphic novel offerings this week! First up is Darwyn Cook's delivery of Richard Stark's Parker, The Hunter. It's published by IDW and is a slick package all around, a tight little hardcover with alot of heft. Cooke seems to have married well with the pulp noir of Starking's Parker series and his art is a real draw here in black, white, and blue ink. Man does it look cool!

Next is another hardcover offering, the impressively thick You Have Killed me by Jamie S. Rich and Joëlle Jones. Jones' art is lovely and crisp in black and white, and she has a knack for loose character that really pops on the page. Another fine offering from Oni Press who has one of the best graphic novel libraries around.

If you gotta see for yourself, each of the book links above has a downloadable preview!

Being a rather hefty lineup at the counter, I passed on the latest volume of Flight which also hit the shelves. It still looks to be a solid buy, tho I'm sure I can put it on the back burner for a while.
