This Isn't A Library: New, Notable Releases Into Comics' Direct Market

Here are the books that make an impression on me staring at this week's no-doubt largely accurate list of books shipping from Diamond Comic Distributors, Inc. to comic book and hobby shops across North America.

I might not buy all of the works listed here. I might not buy any. You never know. I'd sure look at the following, though.

JAN198945 APOCALYPSE TACO $14.99

I'm off to a doctor's appointment this morning so I'm behind on this. I also trusted the Diamond page on what the big hits of the week might be, so I'm going to spend some time when I get back working in images for Leaving Richards Valley and the Jaime. Beyond that, I think you can look for those two books, the Cannabis book from Box Brown, whatever that Adventures book is doing and that weird Taco book. I'll rewrite to fit in a couple of hours.

The full list of this week's releases, including some titles with multiple cover variations and a long, impressive list of toys and other stuff that isn't comics, can be found here. Despite this official list there's no guarantee a comic will show up in the stores as promised, or in all of the stores as opposed to just a few. Also, stores choose what they carry and don't carry so your shop may not carry a specific publication. There are a lot of comics out there.

To find your local comic book store, check this list; and for one I can personally recommend because I've shopped there, albeit a while back, try this.

The above titles are listed with their Diamond order code in the first field, which may assist you in finding comics at your shop or having them order something for you they don't have in-stock. Ordering through a direct market shop can be a frustrating experience, so if you have a direct line to something -- you know another shop has it, you know a bookstore has it -- I'd urge you to consider all of your options.

If I failed to list your comic, that's because I hate you.
