This week's comic shop shipment is slated to include the following new titles. Read on to see what comics-blog commentators and web-savvy comic shops are saying about them (more to be added as they appear), check out our previews at the links, and contact your local shop to confirm availability.
Cannon 
296-page black & white/color 11" x 7.5" hardcover • $35.00
ISBN: 978-1-60699-702-4 
 
"The women when not naked are about to get naked, or may be pining for a time when they will be naked…A lot of the work is sublimely handsome, as is befitting a Wally Wood comic, and has the authority that a well-drawn work brings that we tend not to question but is such a remarkable gift to tone and feel." –Tom Spurgeon, Comics Reporter  
 
"Serialized in Overseas Weekly, far away from applicable content restrictions, Cannon reconfigures the tradition of adventuresome comics patriotism into something more to Woody's liking, with an emotionless killing machine doing what needs to be done, every time, no matter how naked the ladies get." -Joe McCulloch, The Comics Journal

Edited by David Tosh

Written and drawn by John Liney between 1946 and 1961, these stories prove Henry to be a combination of Dennis the Menace and Little Lulu, getting into and out of jams, in these marvelously antic, off-kilter, and occasionally downright surreal stories. Perfect for young and old alike.

ISBN: 978-1-60699-583-9

"Inio Asano is one of the best new manga creators, hands down." - Shaenon Garrity, About.com

"Inio Asano is one of the great emerging voices in manga... [Nijigahara Holograph] is guaranteed to be one of the books of the year, and should help cement Asano's reputation." - ComicsAlliance

"[a] hardcover survey of the career of the poet and illustrator behind Jingle Jangle Comics among other zany pursuits of the type which often wouldn't capture the eye of comic book aficionados..." –Joe McCulloch, The Comics Journal

ISBN: 978-1-60699-689-8

Prince Valiant Vol. 8  
Prince Valiant Vol. 8: 1951-1952 by Hal Foster
120-page full-color 10.25" x 14" hardcover • $35.00
ISBN: 978-1-60699-699-0
 
"Medieval swordplay and adventure have never been as glorious as in Foster's Sunday-only comic strip.... Prince Valiant is one of the best-drawn comics ever, and this new edition does ample justice to its achievement." - Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) 

"If you've never read Prince Valiant at all, I highly implore you to give it a shot with Fantagraphics' current hardcover reprints. They're huge, beautiful - the best these strips have looked since their original publication, if not exceeding them. They're world-spanning adventure comics of the highest order - in a pantheon of titles ranging from Corto Maltese to Kamandi to Tintin." - Joe Keatinge

Prison Pit 5  

124-page black & white 6.5" x 8.5" softcover • $12.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-700-0

"Johnny Ryan's Prison Pit Five is disgustingly, violently brilliant." - James Cartwright, It's Nice That   

"The continuing adventures of Johnny Ryan's most violent fantasies run amuck, [Prison Pit] is rapidly becoming the comic that I look forward to the way a fat kid looks forward to syrup-encrusted cake. There's no getting around the hoary old cliche - 'these aren't for everybody' - so God help you if you can't figure out a way to enjoy these books." - Tucker Stone, Flavorwire

Wandering Son Vol.6  

Wandering Son (Hourou Musuko / 放浪息子) Vol. 6  
by Shimura Takako

220-page black & white (with some color) 7" x 9.5" hardcover • $24.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-707-9

"...[L]ike the best coming-of-age stories - comics or otherwise - Wandering Son is meticulously accurate in its details, but universal in its emotions. Gay or not, readers shouldn't find it too difficult to identify with kids who feel like their bodies and their friends are equally culpable in the worst kind of betrayal, preventing them from realizing the potential they see in themselves." - Noel Murray, The A.V. Club

"Completed before Forsman began work on TEOTFW, this promises to be an intriguing tale of youth banging up against the world of adulthood." -Tom Murphy, Broken Frontier

Black is the Color  

Black is the Color 
by Julia Gfrörer

72-page black & white 6" x 9" softcover • $14.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-717-8

"Beautiful. Gfrörer has a light touch in finding the yearning and humor amongst life's hard luck and even harder truths. A genuinely romantic and sensitive book." –Sammy Harkham 

"Gfrörer's most moving comic to date, Black Is the Color eroticizes suffering not to glamorize it, but to endure it. We're adrift; what other choice do we have?" –Sean T. Collins, The Comics Journal

"This is Julia Gfrorer's fine-looking work, very idiosyncratically told in a way that makes you love cartoonists that take those opportunities and run with them." –Tom Spurgeon, Comics Reporter

Couch Tag  

Couch Tag  
by Jesse Reklaw

176-page monochrome/color 6.25" x 9.25" hardcover • $26.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-676-8

"[A] family's evolution springs from the stories and the dialogue. Clever, moving and often hilarious." –Houston Chronicle 

"…it's another work in a very strong year for Reklaw that included the short he did for Robyn Chapman. An autobiographical tale that gets increasingly unhinged, Reklaw's work also reminded me of some of the emotionally infused alt-manga I read this year: a really unique comics-reading experience." –Tom Spurgeon, Comics Reporter 

There's a lot of energy hidden, pent up, in Reklaw's older normal "square" cartooning style, and it's starting to bust out and become unpredictable, more like he is in person." –Kevin Huizenga

The EC Artists  

The Comics Journal Library Vol. 8: The EC Artists
edited by Michael Dean

240-page black & white/color 10" x 12" softcover • $28.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-608-9

A lot of those folks were very thoughtful artists, and this TCJ generated book can take you into what many of them were thinking." –Tom Spurgeon, Comics Reporter 

Captain Easy 4

Captain Easy, Soldier of Fortune: The Complete Sunday Newspaper Strips Vol. 4 (1941-1943) 
by Roy Crane

144-page full-color 10.5" x 14.75" hardcover • $49.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-698-0

"It's easy to toss around the word 'genius,' especially when it comes to comics. We all have our favorites and we all like to think ours are the great ones. But one look at Roy Crane's work and anyone can see that he definitely was worthy of the 'genius' tag." - Tom Mason, Comix 411  

"Crane's art is stunning, combining simple cartoony figures with richly detailed backgrounds in clever, colorful layouts. It isn't even necessary to read the dialogue or captions to follow the action; just scan Crane's dynamic lines, which make every panel look like a unique work of pop art. [Grade:] A-." –The A.V. Club

ISBN: 978-1-60699-669-0

"Robbins is pretty well known for doing these 'Women in comics' type books over the years. But this larger-sized format, with bright colors really makes this much more than a simple updating of a years old exercise." –Benn Ray, Atomic Books  
 
"Finally, all hail Trina Robbins." –Tom Spurgeon, Comics Reporter
