Lots of interesting stuff will be awaiting my purchase at 2005 Will Eisner Spirit of Comics Retailer Award Winning Night Flight Comics this Wednesday, including a Pulp Trifecta of Poe, Howard, and Lovecraft (as Cthulhu Tales was already sold out by my lunchtime visit last week and has to be ordered in from the other store).
Right at the top of the reading stack will be 52, if only to get this week's "52 on 52" going. Richard Corben's black-and-white Haunt Of Horror: Edgar Allan Poe looks like a real treat, and I commend Marvel for doing it. Paul Pope's Batman: Year One Hundred finishes up this week, and I must say that though I expected great things from pope, I've been surprised at how good the series has been. I'm a dead sucker for Union Jack - one of the few characters I am really attached to - so this week's Captain America is the book I'm most anticipating.
It's good to see some delayed image books hitting the racks: Fell and Fear Agent. Speaking of delayed, DC gets in the "when pigs fly" game by shipping both All Star Batman And Robin The Boy Wonder and Superman/Batman.
I also need to make a point of adding the excellent The Black Coat to my pull list.
