The Week in Comics -- Here's what I recommend picking up on new comics day this week:

COMING WEDNESDAY JULY 14TH

FANTAGRAPHICS BOOKS

EIGHTBALL #23 (MR) $7.00 -- This is inarguably the highlight of the week, and it belongs in the hands of everyone interested in comics. Sean Collins reviewed Eightball #23 here, because he's lucky enough to have gotten his copy at MoCCA in New York City a couple weeks back. I haven't read it yet damn it, but you can read my thoughts on Eightball here.

DC COMICS

BOOKS OF MAGICK LIFE DURING WARTIME #1 $2.50 -- I think I read and liked the original Books of Magic, but that was a long, long time ago and I really haven't kept up with it. The fact that Neil Gaiman and Dean Ormston are on the creative team is enough to generate more than a little interest, though.

DC COMIC PRESENTS MYSTERY IN SPACE #1 $2.50 -- I read and was not knocked out by the Batman release in this series last week. Grant Morrison's written a story for this issue, though, so I'll be picking it up. After The Filth, new work from Morrison automatically gets a look from me.

MARVEL

DISTRICT X #3 $2.99 -- Speaking of Morrison, his run on New X-Men partially inspired this creepy look at policing mutants in their own part of town, and David Hine's script is every bit as unique and odd as his terrific Strange Embrace would have you anticipating. In the hype over Whedon and Claremont's current X-runs, don't let this one get past you...it's as good or better than either of their titles and much more iconoclastic in its approach.
