Hot Off the Press!

This week’s highlights, with commentary from the NFNT gang:

Bluffton

Bluffton: My Summers with Buster Keaton (Candlewick Press, 9780763650797)

Eva: Bluffton! But then, any new book by Matt Phelan is cause for celebration, am I right?

Gail: Another one I have been looking forward to for a while.

ghosts-and-ruins

Ghosts and Ruins (Fantagraphics, 9781606996782)

Gail: Always love ghosts, ghost stories, and the anticipation of great storytelling. Looking forward to this one for sure.

KevinKeller2

Kevin Keller Volume 2: Drive Me Crazy (Archie Comics, 9781936975587)

Snow: New Kevin Keller!! More adventures of my favorite military brat! (Outside of myself, of course.)

Amano_KingdomHearts_ChainOfMemories

Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories (Yen Press, 9780316255622)

Kingdom Hearts: Final Mix Volume 2 (Yen Press, 9780316254212)

Jennifer W: I’ve found the Kingdom Hearts sooo confusing I was just ignoring the new releases (are they new? reprints? what order do they go in? are they different series? ARGH!) but I just had two very enthusiastic teens beg me for them and tell me the ones I had were not in order at all, so I guess I’m ordering them and just hoping when they come they’re less confusing than the random volumes I currently own.

KITARO.cover_

Kitaro (Drawn & Quarterly, 9781770461109)

Jenny: I’ve heard about Shigeru Mizuki’s Kitaro (or Gegege no Kitaro) about a strange little boy living in a cemetery (I loved Gaiman’s Graveyard Book and Beagle’s A Fine and Quiet Place, which have a similar set-up) and am excited to be able to finally read it!  Since I very much enjoyed his semi-autobiographical books and love yokai and other non-gory-horror spooky stories, I’m sure this folklore culture-filled tale will be swell.

Gail: This one sounds right up my alley as well. Will definitely keep my eye out for it.
