This Week's Releases: April 5, 2006

I'll be able to hit 2005 Will Eisner Spirit of Comics Retailer Award Winning Night Flight Comics on Wednesday this week. Seems it's been a few weeks since I've been able to do that.

It's Planetary Day, so that's something I look forward to. Like a solar eclipse, rarity makes it special.

Even beyond Planetary, it's a good lookin' week. The real All-Star Batman (Matt Wagner's Batman and the Monster Men) wraps it's run, Infinite Crisis heads to a close, and the much-ballyhooed Moon Knight relaunch kicks off. I'm also looking forward to Oni's Strangetown, by Chynna Clugston and Ian Shaughnessy.

Is that the actual cover to Planetary #25? The one that was solicited was ... bland, at best.

Mark Fossen said...

That's what I found at Midtown Comics. I was surprised as well.

DC shows something else entirely.

Richard said...

I'm fairly certain that the cover on DC is a mock-up - the background is direct from somewhere in PLANETARY # 6 and the foreground beshadowed Mr. Snow rings far too many bells.

Kevin Melrose said...

Hm. That cover looks interesting. I'll have to see if I can dig up a larger version -- I might end up writing about it.

Mark Fossen said...

If you can't find one online, I'll happily scan it and send it tomorrow.

What a week, eh? Glad to see you picked up Moon Knight!
