Hot Off the Press!

Highlights from the past two weeks, with commentary from the NFNT gang:

 BatmanDITFv3     CatwomanDITFv3     JokerDITF

Batgirl HC Volume 3: Death of the Family (DC Comics, 9781401242596)

Catwoman TP Volume 3: Death of the Family (DC Comics, 9781401242725)

Joker: Death of the Family (DC Comics, 9781401242350)

Traci: Death of the Family!  I loved the Batman trade of this series – can’t wait to read the other arcs of the story.

 BlakeandMortimer15

Blake & Mortimer Volume 15: Secret of the Swordfish part 1 (Cinebook, 9781849181488)
Jennifer W: I’m personally looking forward to Blake and Mortimer’s Adventure of the Swordfish – although it’s labeled as vol. 15, it’s referred to in many of the other adventures as the first adventure where the main villain is introduced.

 DanceClass6     Nancy-Drew-and-the-Clue-Crew-3     Ninjago8

Dance Class Volume 6: Merry Olde Christmas
Nancy Drew & the Clue Crew Volume 3: Dragon Mystery
Ninjago Volume 8: Destiny of Doom

Jennifer W: Most of my graphic novel order this month will be Papercutz for the kids – Nancy Drew and the Clue Crew, Dance Class, Lego Ninjago, are all hugely popular. I’ve just gotten a reluctant reader hooked on Dance Class and the 6-9 year old boys are all clamoring to be first to read the latest Ninjago.

 FablesEncyclopedia

Fables Encyclopedia Deluxe Edition (DC Comics/Vertigo, 9781401243951)

Allen: I would like to get my hands on the Fables Encyclopedia. Sounds like a neat set, a compendium of the fable characters and their literary origins, if I am correct.

 marvel-marvel-zombies-complete-collection-tpb-1

Marvel Zombies: Complete Collection Volume 1 (Marvel Comics, 9780785185383)
Jennifer W: Part of me would like to buy the Marvel Zombies complete collection for the library, since these are soooo popular, but I’m reluctant to spend $22 on a 400+ page paperback. The only bright side to this edition being it will probably fall apart before being stolen, which will be a first for this series.

 misadventures-of-salem-hyde

The Misadventures of Salem Hyde (Amulet, 9781419708039)

Jennifer W: Misadventures of Salem Hyde is by Frank Cammuso, who did the Dodgeball Chronicles. Very Disney/animation style, the kids love it. I gave a galley of Salem Hyde to one of my 9 year old readers and she gave it a thumbs up. I thought it was pretty funny myself.

 wallace-and-gromit-newspaper-strips-vol-1

Wallace and Gromit: Newspaper Strips Volume 1  (Titan Books, 9781782760320)

Jennifer W: Has anyone seen the Wallace and Gromit newspaper strips? I’ve never heard of them, but I do have Wallace and Gromit fans. I’d like to see them myself…
