Hot Off the Press!

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

Alice-in-the-Country-of-Hearts-the-Mad-Hatters-Late-Night-Tea-Party-1-Paperback-P9781937867782

Alice in the Country of Hearts: Mad Hatter’s Late Night Tea Party Volume 1 (Seven Seas Entertainment, 9781937867782)

Robin: For the love of Pete, how many Alice in the Country of Hearts sub-stories are there?  It’s getting to the point that my catalogers hate me.

Anything-That-Loves 

Anything That Loves (Northwest Press, 9781938720321)
Snow: I was one of the Kickstarter backers for Anything That Loves and I’m looking forward to reading it. (I actually have a copy, but review deadlines keep getting in the way!)

Bandette_Main

Bandette Volume 1: Presto (Dark Horse, 9781616552794)

Snow: I saw an ad for Bandette while I was at ALA this summer and the cover was so intriguing that I’ve been looking forward to it ever since.

Robin: Bandette also looks lovely, with Colleen Coover’s simply, fluid art.  Looking forward to seeing more of it and I love the idea that it’s a pseudo-Francophone comic.

Old_City_Blues_v2_GN_Cover__07110.1370393080.1280.1280

Old City Blues Volume 2 (Archaia, 9781939867025)

Jenny: I enjoyed the scratchy, retro cyberpunk feel of the first volume of Giannis Milonogiannis’s Old City Blues and would like to see where the story goes in volume 2.

other-stories-cover-web 

Other Stories and the Horse You Rode in On (Conundrum Press, 9781894994743)

Gail: Looking forward to this title as well, especially as it takes place next door (ok, the next province over)

Showa

Showa: History of Japan 1926-1939 (Drawn & Quarterly, 9781770461352)

Jenny: Cultural history plays into all of Shigeru Mizuki’s works in English so far (Nonnonba, Kitaro, Onward Towards Our Noble Deaths), so I’d love to see what he does in a more straight-up history with Showa History of Japan 1926-1939.

Swampthing 

Swamp Thing Volume 3: Rotworld the Green Kingdom (DC Comics, 9781401242640)

Traci: I’m really excited for the new Swamp Thing tpb – Rotworld.  I’m really enjoying the story and the artwork is unbelievable.  I like how it intersects with the Animal Man series, too.

kodansha-comics-vinland-saga-hard-cover-1 

Vinland Saga Volume 1 (Kodansha)

Emily: Oh! I actually am expecting Vinland Saga 1 to be shipped to my house sometime today. I’ve heard that people who like Attack on Titan/Shingeki no Kyojin would like it a lot, so I decided to go and buy it. It’s a two-in-one volume plus hardcover, so I’m pretty excited to get it.

Robin: I too have heard a lot of buzz around Vinland Saga, so I’m curious to finally read it.

Eva: We seem to be unanimous on Vinland Saga. It’s one of those books that no one thought would ever get released in the US, so I’m really excited to take a look.
