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

1) Uncle Scrooge #392

This is the first part in the new DuckTales storyline. I am so excited about this! I love Gizmoduck and Launchpad and the Beagle Boys. I loved getting to meet the Boom! Studios crew at the convention. I’m glad that they were right across the aisle from us. Ross Richie, Amy Mebberson and Kate Hayden are so sweet. And I got an awesome Toy Story sketch from Travis Hill. I wish I could have spent a little more time hanging out with them. I hear they are hilarious. And I really wanted to get a Muppet sketch from Amy. Sigh, there is always next time. I just love the Boom! guys (and gals). Everyone I have dealt with has been nothing but awesome. And that goes for Travis Beaty their “Traffic Controller.”

2) Neil Young’s Greendale HC

This is a graphic novel adaptation of Neil Young‘s concept album Greendale. It is written by Joshua Dysart and drawn by Cliff Chiang. It looks amazing!

3) Batman #700

I would be remiss to not mention the 700th issue of Batman which is a huge milestone to hit. This book is full of big names. Grant Morrison wrote each story with a rotating cast of artists, which include: Tony Daniel, Frank Quitely, Scott Kolins, Andy Kubert and David Finch. The pin-ups in the back are awesome! Superman #700 and Wonder Woman #600 will follow shortly. It is a big year for DC Comics!

4) Meta 4 #1

Ted McKeever does triple duty on this book as writer, artist and letter. This is the first issue in a 5-part mini-series. The art is black and white and it has a painterly quality to it. It is rough and free. If you like his other works you should definitely give this a shot!

5) The Light #3

I mainly wanted to talk about this to bring up the fact that Nathan Edmondson is a super awesome guy. He is a talented painter too. I bought his ballerina painting at the silent art auction at HeroesCon this past weekend. There were some incredible pieces at the silent art auction this year. I have been digging this story and I like Brett Weldele‘s ability to capture light. I highly recommend this book!

6) Shield #2 (Marvel)

This is a fun, well written and well illustrated book. Jonathan Hickman and Dustin Weaver are totally awesome!
