Reviews of trade paperbacks of comic books (mostly Marvel), along with a few other semi-relevant comments / reviews.

01 March 2011

Dark Horse, IDW, and Image May 2011 solicitations (collected editions)

Must have:

  • Usagi Yojimbo, v. 25: Fox Hunt: Always up for the next Usagi book, although it feels like the collected editions are slipping further and further behind the comics. This collects #110-6, but the series will be almost two years ahead of that by the time this comes out in July. ($16.99; Dark Horse)

Might buy if the price is right:

  • Barks’ Bear Book: On the same month as DC issues an obscure Jack Kirby collection, IDW releases a collection of Carl Barks’s obscure backups featuring Barney Bear and Benny Burro. The names aren’t promising, but it is Barks. ($34.99, ISBN: 9781600109294; IDW)
  • Scary Godmother Comic Book Stories: Haven’t read any of Jill Thompson’s Scary Godmother stories; is this a good place to start? ($24.99; Dark Horse)

Might check out of a library:

  • Archie’s Joke Book, v. 1: A Celebration of Bob Montana: I don’t know why they’re celebrating Bob Montana, but I am mildly intrigued. ($29.99, ISBN: 9781600109584; IDW)
  • Blackjacked and Pistol-Whipped: A Crime Does Not Pay Primer: Contains a few selected stories and evidently some interesting trivia about the book itself. Could be some fascinating reading. Could be a letdown. You never know. ($19.99; Dark Horse)


  • Avatar: The Last Airbender — The Lost Adventures: Good to see the M. Night Shyamalan movie hasn’t sunk the series completely. ($14.99; Dark Horse)
  • Cardcaptor Sakura Omnibus Book 2 ($19.99; Dark Horse)
  • Magic Knight Rayearth Omnibus Edition ($19.99; Dark Horse)

The Rest:

  • 30 Days of Night Collector’s Set ($39.99, ISBN: 9781600109652; IDW)
  • Angel Omnibus ($24.99; Dark Horse)
  • Angel Yearbook ($7.99, ISBN: 9781600109614; IDW)
  • The Art of Amanda Conner ($24.99, ISBN: 9781600109508; IDW)
  • The Art of Doug Sneyd ($39.99; Dark Horse)
  • Bomb Queen, v. 6: Time Bomb ($16.99; Image)
  • Choker, v. 1 ($16.99; Image)
  • Creepy Archives, v. 10 ($49.99; Dark Horse)
  • Creepy Comics, v. 1 ($19.99; Dark Horse)
  • Dethklok: I wouldn’t be surprised if this were as good as the TV show itself, since it has stories written by the series’ creator and animation director. Also, it just feels like the kind of TV series that would translate well to the page. ($19.99; Dark Horse)
  • Devil's Concubine ($19.99, ISBN: 9781600109485; IDW)
  • Doctor Macabre ($17.99, ISBN: 9781600109157; IDW)
  • George R.R. Martin's Doorways: Really? George R.R. Martin has reached this level of popularity? ($21.99, ISBN: 9781600109164; IDW)
  • Guarding the Globe, v. 1: For those of you needing a Kirkman fix this month. ($16.99; Image)
  • Gutwrencher ($19.99, ISBN: 9781600109362; IDW)
  • Hellboy Library Edition, v. 4 ($49.99; Dark Horse)
  • Kull, v. 2: The Hate Witch ($15.99; Dark Horse)
  • Li’l Abner, v. 3 ($49.99, ISBN: 9781600109379; IDW)
