It's a light week this Wednesday at 2005 Will Eisner Spirit of Comics Retailer Award Winning Night Flight Comics, at least for me. This is a good thing: I need to pick up bags and boards, and there are some big must-buy Xbox 360 game releases this week. Working both habits, gaming and comics, on my limited budget is an exercise in creativity.
Having never read a Sky Ape book, King Of Girls sits at the top of my list this week. I've heard a lot of good stuff about this jetpack-enabled simian, and I look forward to seeing what all the fuss is about. American Virgin also looks mighty fine, with a mix of religion and sex that should nicely blend with my constant discomfort at living in a Mormon Theocracy. Becky Cloonan's the selling point, though.
As for the rest? More Seven Soldiers, another Fell, the start of some more Kirby-inspired Joe Casey, and another issue of Matt Wagner's Monster Men (or, as I call it, The Real All-Star Batman)
