This Week's Releases: July 25, 2006

These days, Focused Totality is anything but.

"Focused", that is.

Henry V is sapping much of my attention, and the fact that yesterday I got laid off from a company I built .... well, updates could get a bit scarce. I trust you'll understand.

Depending on job futures, trips to 2005 Will Eisner Spirit of Comics Retailer Award Winning Night Flight Comics may also become scarce, but I will relish Wednesday's trip nonetheless. I've been looking forward to this Morrison/Kubert Batman run for some time now, and am a-tingle with anticipation at finally getting my hands on it. Morrison seems over-praised by the WeboComicsBlogoNet, and Andy Kubert unduly chastised ... so it should result in some fun review dissonance, at minimum.

Beyond that, there's the I-haven't-quite-given-up-yet Civil War storyline, a double shot of Kurt Busiek goodness (Astro City, Action Comics), the conclusion to the stunning Godland, and I'll obey the commands of Guy and try to pick up the new Bumperboy.

There's also a whole mess o' BOOM! Studios hitting tomorrow (Black Plague, Jeremiah Harm, War Of The Worlds: Second Wave), and I plan to post a roundup of the preview pack I received before you make your shopping decisions.
