This Week's Comics

A quick selection of stand out titles arriving in comic stores this Thursday: (Wednesday if you’re in the USA):

LOST GIRLS HC by Alan Moore & Melinda Gebbie

A new 320 page hardback edition of Alan Moore's erotic epic, which will no doubt be welcomed by those who couldn’t afford the lavish three book slipcased version. This may not be Alan’s strongest work to date, but it’s definitely an interesting experiment in comics as erotica / pornography, written with all the usual intelligence and creative zest that you’d expect. You can read Neil Gaiman’s review here.

INCOGNITO #5 by Ed Brubaker, Sean Phillips & Val Staples

Supervillains in witness protection? Quite clearly a disaster waiting to happen. Brubaker and Phillips continue to deliver the goods. More information here.

RASL #5 by Jeff Smith

Dimension hopping science fiction from the man who brought you Bone. Well written and effortlessly stylish.

Preacher HC Book 1 by Garth Ennis & Steve Dillon

Hardback reprint of Garth Ennis’ Vertigo classic Preacher. This new edition collects the first 12 issues. The perfect starting point for all of us who never quite got round to reading this, myself included. For shame!
