Hot Off the Press

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

AvengersAssembleScienceBros

Avengers Assemble: Science Bros (Marvel, 9780785167976)

Traci: I’m excited for the Avengers Assemble TPB Science Bros Now.  I’ve been reading more and more Avengers stuff since the movie came out.  So, I just picked up Bendis’ run on the series; looking forward to reading Kelly’s take!

DBZRockEdition

Dragon Ball Z: Rock the Dragon Edition (Funimation)

Allen: Another Dragonball Z collection? Huh.  Ahh, it looks like it’s a collector’s set of the original 53 FUNimation broadcast episodes.

March1

March Volume 1 (Top Shelf, 9781603093002)

Robin: I’m really looking forward Top Shelf’s March, from Congressman John Lewis, Andrew Aydin, and Nate Powell.  They had quite the presentations at ALA Annual this year, and I got to talk a bit with Mr. Aydin about the book.  It looks really outstanding, and definitely a title libraries should pick up.

Snow: I second Robin on this one. Hearing Mr. Aydin speak about the process of how March got from idea to publication was one of the more interesting conversations at an already fascinating ALA.

OttosBackwardDay     PatrickEatsHisPeas

Otto’s Backwards Day (TOON Books, 9781935179337)
Patrick Eats His Peas and Other Stories (TOON Books, 9781935179344)

Eva: I continue to be really impressed with the quality of Toon Books’ easy reader-level graphic novels. That they’ve brought out two volume twos for series that are already darn good is great news to me.

Wallflower31

The Wallflower Volume 31 (Kodansha, 9781612622453)

Snow: A new Wallflower is always cause for a happy dance from me.

Jenny: Agreed, a new Wallflower definitely calls for dancing.
