New DC 52 This Week!

The New DC52 continues to impress with record sales and critical acclaim.

    

My personal favorite last week was Demon Knights!

 

New this week:

 

BATMAN #1 

  

 Be here for the start of a new era for The Dark Knight from writer Scott Snyder (AMERICAN VAMPIRE, BATMAN: GATES OF GOTHAM, SWAMP THING, SEVERED) and artist Greg Capullo! A series of brutal killings hints at an ancient conspiracy, and Batman learns that Gotham City is deadlier than he ever knew.

 

BIRDS OF PREY #1

 

One is wanted for a murder she didn't commit. The other is on the run because she knows too much. They are Dinah Laurel Lance and Ev Crawford--Black Canary and Starling--and together, as Gotham City's covert ops team, they're taking down the villains other heroes can't touch!

 

BLUE BEETLE #1  

 

It's not easy being Jaime Reyes. He has to deal with high school, family and all the drama that comes with being a teenager. Also, he's linked to a powerful scarab created by an alien race known as the Reach who seeks to subjugate planets--or annihilate them!

 

CAPTAIN ATOM #1

 

Charged by nuclear energy, possessing vast molecular powers, Captain Atom has the potential to be a literal god among men--a hero without limits. But the question is: will he lose himself in the process?  

 

CATWOMAN #1

 

Meet Catwoman. She's addicted to the night. Addicted to shiny objects. And addicted to Batman. But most of all, Catwoman is addicted to danger. She can't help herself, and the truth is--she doesn't want to. She's good at being bad, and very bad at being good. Find out more about what makes Catwoman tick in this new series from writer Judd Winick (BATMAN: UNDER THE HOOD) and artist Guillem March (GOTHAM CITY SIRENS)!

 

DC UNIVERSE PRESENTS #1 DEADMAN

 

It's the start of a new series spotlighting some of the DC Universe's most exciting super heroes! First up is Deadman in a five-issue epic where the body-hopping hero meets his match in a new foe who wants to make sure the souls that Deadman helps out go straight to Hell!

 

GREEN LANTERN CORPS #1

 

Writer Peter Tomasi returns to the ring-slinging Corps with a brand new issue #1! When deadly conflicts emerge across the universe, it's up to Guy Gardner, John Stewart and an elite Green Lantern strike force to keep the peace--or else.

 

LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES #1

 

The Legion of Super-Heroes has been decimated by the worst disaster in its history. Now, the students of the Legion Academy must rise to the challenge of helping the team rebuild--but a threat of almost unstoppable power is rising at the edge of Dominator space, and if the new recruits fail, the Legion Espionage Squad may be the first casualties in a war that could split worlds in half!

 

NIGHTWING #1

 

Dick Grayson flies high once more as Nightwing in a series from writer Kyle Higgins! And as he embraces his destiny, Haley's Circus, the big top where Dick once performed, returns to Gotham City--bringing with it murder, mystery and superhuman evil!

 

RED HOOD & THE OUTLAWS #1

 

No sooner has Batman's former sidekick Jason Todd put his past as the Red Hood behind him than he finds himself cornered by a pair of modern day outlaws: Green Arrow's rejected sidekick Arsenal and the alien Starfire. As a loner, Jason has absolutely no interest in this motley crew of outlaws. So what's he going to do when they choose the Red Hood as their leader?

 

SUPERGIRL #1  

  

 Meet Supergirl. She's got the unpredictable behavior of a teenager, the same powers as Superman--and none of his affection for the people of Earth. So don't piss her off!

 

WONDER WOMAN #1

 

The Gods walk among us. To them, our lives are playthings. Only one woman would dare to protect humanity from the wrath of such strange and powerful forces. But is she one of us--or one of them? WONDER WOMAN begins anew under the creative team of Brian Azzarello (100 Bullets) and Cliff Chiang!

 

Also From DC This Week:

 

The New Teen Titans: Games HC

 

Legendary creators Marv Wolfman (CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS) and George Perez (CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS, AVENGERS, JUSTICE LEAGUE, heck everything) reunite for a lost tale from their classic run on the best-selling NEW TEEN TITANS!

 

This original graphic novel features a mysterious villain playing a deadly game with New York City as the gameboard -- and the Teen Titans as thepieces! Twenty years in the making, THE NEW TEEN TITANS: GAMES is a can't-miss for fans new and old.

Lunch Lady and the Field Trip Fiasco

The latest volume in Jarrett J. Krosoczka's Lunch Lady series has arrived!

 

Lunch Lady and the Breakfast Bunch are on a school field trip to a famous art museum. But while Lunch Lady is busy taking in all the culture, the kids have caught onto something strange-some of the artwork looks suspiciously fake! Now Dee, Hector, and Terrence are determined to get to the bottom of this conspiracy, but Lunch Lady is too awed to catch on.  Will she snap out of it and come to the rescue? Or will the Breakfast Bunch have to handle this operation alone?

 

Lunch Lady and the Field Trip Fiasco is now on sale! 

 

(I'm really thrilled because Jarrett included my real life kids in the field trip! Thanks Jarrett!)   

 

Craig Thompson's HABIBI

Lo and behold the much anticipated return of Craig Thompson (creator of Blankets & Good-Bye Chunky Rice)to the graphic novel world with this year's publication of Habibi.

 

A captivating and deeply romantic story, Habibi explores the beauty and cruelty, the complexity and depths of the Islamic world, and the divide and link between Christianity and Islam through the haunting stories of its characters' lives.

 

Dodola and Zam's paths intersect in light of tragedy. Both the property of slave traders, they soon manage to escape. What ensues is a struggle to make a place for themselves in a world often met by hardships, suffering, and uncertainty.

 

Craig's stunning artwork strikingly matches the puissance of his storytelling, and is sure to instantly establish itself as an epic modern parable; one that demonstrates how anguish and pain can be transformed into joy through the power of love and hope.

 

"Craig Thompson's new graphic novel, Habibi, is a masterpiece. This isn't an opinion. This book is a gorgeous object; to make it, Thompson apparently covered himself in honey and rolled around in a thousand years of Arabic calligraphy and Islamic art, and the result is breathtaking." -The Boston Phoenix

 

This book is gorgeous and must be seen to believe. 

 

Bill Willingham's

Down The Mysterly River 

They were four unlikely friends, united by a common enemy. As odd a collection of fugitives as there ever was: A wolf who is not a wolf; a badger who is also an ex-army veteran; the brave sheriff of a lost forest realm; and a big, ugly, stinky, yellow monster. Together they're on the run from the dreaded Blue Cutters, who seem bent on their destruction. To escape the Cutters, the four friends will have to flee out of the hills and down the Mysterly River, to reach the one far away place of safety the Cutters aren't allowed to go: the castle of the Wizard Edgar.

Bill Willingham is the critically acclaimed creator of Fables.  This is his first young adult novel. The book also has illustrations by Mark Buckingham.

A Game of Thrones
Game of Thrones #1
George R.R. Martin has been called 'the American Tolkien' by Time Magazine, and now his landmark fantasy series is being adapted to a graphic format!

This novel has also been adapted as a major miniseries by HBO.

 

 

We also carry the original novels, and the games!


 

Meet Sara Varon Sunday 10/2/11 
Meet creator Sara Varon!

Sara's first graphic novel, Robot Dreams, was an Oprah Book Club Selection!


Cupcake needs some help with his bakery. But is he looking in the
wrong places?

... Cupcake's life is pretty good. He's got his bakery, and his band, and his best friend, Eggplant. His days are full of cooking, socializing, and playing
music. But lately, Cupcake has been struggling in the kitchen. He's sure the solution to all his problems is out there somewhere. But maybe that solution is hiding closer to home.

Sara Varon returns with an ageless tale as dreamy and evocative as her break-out hit graphic novel Robot Dreams. At once deeply metaphorical and hilariously literal, Bake Sale is a story for anyone who's ever looked for an easy answer to life's intractable difficulties.

It's also a cookbook: Varon includes seven delicious recipes, from classic cupcakes to sugared flower petals to marzipan.
