This Week's Releases: December 21, 2005

The week before Christmas, and Santa's coming early. He has a lot in his sack, and he's dropping it all under the tree at 2005 Will Eisner Spirit of Comics Retailer Award Winning Night Flight Comics.

What shoots right to the top of my reading stack? What could possibly beat out Wimbledon Green: Greatest Comic Book Collector In The World? What could triumph over the juggernaut of Infinite Crisis? What can defeat the surprise challenger of JSA Classified? What book contains more expected goodness than Seven Soldiers: Bulleteer? What can bestride colossuses like Ed Brubaker (Captain America and X-Men: Deadly Genesis), Joe Casey (Iron Man: The Inevitable), Kurt Busiek (Conan), and Lost co-creator Damon Lindelof (Ultimate Wolverine vs Hulk)?

Elk's Run.

The answer again, for those of you playing at home: Elk's Run.

Now's a perfect time to catch up. If you can't pick up the Bumper Edition, you can still get caught up quite nicely. Between the free first issue at Newsarama and the newly-added free third issue at Hoarse & Buggy, you'll be all set for #4 which will hit stands tomorrow.

Thanks for the love, as alwyas man. And for spreading the word that the free issue is up on the site. I sent out the PR yesterday, and hardly any sites picked it up until late today.

Help keep the fires burning!

You keep writing one of my top few series, I'll keep burning fires.
