SPOTLIGHT ON NEW RELEASES :: FEBRUARY 17

In which Shawn looks at the New Releases and lets you know which books she is most excited about!

1) Kindle #1

Local gal Bridgit Scheide debuted her comic last week over at the Evening Muse and promptly brought some by our lovely store where you, fine readers, can purchase one. It is a fantasy book about a hobgoblin named Taggert. The art is amazing! I think Bridgit still has some of her art on display at the Evening Muse. You should check it out if you get the chance. (Note: The book is in black and white, the image to the right is the color version of the cover, which looks pretty darn sweet in color OR black and white.)

2) Atomic Robo Revenge of the Vampire Dimension #1

This is the first issue of the fourth volume of Atomic Robo. It is a great jumping on point if you haven’t already been reading the series. Plus, the artist, Scott Wegener, will be at our show in June.

3) Kick-Butt HC

Mark Millar and John Romita, Jr. bring us a story about a boy who wants to be a superhero. The only problem is he doesn’t have superpowers, but that won’t stop him from trying. This book is packed full of over-the-top action and violence. Be sure to read it before you see the major motion picture version coming to a theater near you April 16. And yes I know it isn’t really called Kick-Butt. But I didn’t want to offend the delicate sensibilities of some of our readers, especially the young ones.

4) Zombies vs Robots Aventure #1

Ashley Woods and robots and zombies! Oh my!

5) Devil #1

Devil is a four issue mini-series about a vampire virus. It is basicall a manga but it is full color and coming out as single issues. It looks really cool! Art and story are by Torajiro Kishi and Madhouse Studios.
