Wow, What A Sucky Day For New Comics…

RASL7

Howdy pals. So, this is a REALLY light week and there is, literally, just about not-shit that I actually read on the reg coming out today that I haven’t already talked about, so I’ll highlight the one book that I do read and haven’t yakked about yet – Jeff Smith’s RASL.

And then, after I unpack the books this morning and get some reading in, I’ll post an update with my thoughts on how ‘Blackest Night’ wrapped up and maybe a sweet TPB or two that came out today. Deal?

Full list of the day’s releases plus my thoughts on RASL after the jump:

Jeff Smith’s RASL #7- So, I love weird art, parallel/alternate universe histories and noir-styled, gritty, sci-fi detective stories and if you enjoy any or all of those specific genres, you’re probably already reading this book. It started off as a bit of a “Huh?” but the story about a dimension-jumping art thief has coalesced into a strange and complex, but really engrossing, narrative that leaves you anxious for the character’s fate from chapter to chapter.

My 7 year old son is a big fan of the ‘Bone’ series, which most people are familiar with Smith from, but this is nothing like that. It’s not cute or cuddly and if there is a moral to the story it has yet to be unraveled.

But it is kind of hard to find back issues of this title, so be warned. There is a really limited collection of the first arc and the second arc is about to wrap up but the publication dates and format of this book have jumped around quite a bit, so it’s been easy to miss. However, it’s SO GOOD that even if you have to pick up whatever you can find and fill in the gaps via Wikipedia and Smith’s website, DO IT.

Also, I am going to start copying my list directly from the Diamond Comics Distributors website, so a little info on the letter/number codes preceding the title… (if you’re not nerd-certified and don’t already know.)

The 3 letters and first two numbers are the month/year that the item was initially solicited (as in the issue of the Diamond Previews magazine that the item first appeared in.) The usual span between solicitation and publication is about 3 months, but sometimes shit gets delayed forever (*cough*All Star  Batman and Robin *hack*) oof, excuse me… so sometimes the date may be off of that standard. The next 4 numbers are the item number.

So, if you see something on this list that you want and your retailer doesn’t have it, that month/year/item code should be all you need to get them to order it for you.

Unless they suck. In which case, the shop I work for ships anywhere… 🙂
