List: X-Ray Spex's Will Pfeifer names his Pop Culture Books of the Year for 2010:

Catalog No. 439: Burlesque Paraphernalia and Side Degree Specialties and Costumes

"This is the sort of book I love more than any other. It reveals a world I never knew existed — in this case, the bizarre world of elaborate, mean-spirited, downright dangerous lodge initiations — and does so with a real affection for and appreciation of the past. [Catalog No. 439:] Burlesque Paraphernalia is... the sort of book that makes you think life might've been tougher a long time ago, but it was probably a hell of a lot more interesting, too."

Destroy All Movies!!!: The Complete Guide to Punks on Film [Pre-Order]

"All you need to know about Destroy All Movies is that it's such a complete guide to 'punks on film' (as the subtitle promises) that not only does it include Star Trek IV because of the scene with the punk on the bus, it interviews that guy. Also, the pink-and-black-and-white design theme of the book deserves some sort of award."

Usagi Yojimbo: The Special Edition [Pre-Order]  The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec Vol. 1: Pterror Over Paris and The Eiffel Tower Demon [Pre-Order]

 

Plugs: New York magazine's Dan Kois recommends Usagi Yojimbo: The Special Edition & The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec Vol. 1 on his short list of "Action-Packed New Graphic Novels"
