We've had some eagerly awaited and very shiny new things arrive in store today.
First up is the new Serenity graphic novel, A Shepherd's Tale. You can finally find out the back story of the enigmatic preacher who was once part of the crew of a certain Firefly-class starship. This is sold out to pre-order, but we hope to have more next week. If you have pre-ordered one, please pop in promptly, as Proud Lion will only hold this order till the end of the month. Demand will be high on this one.
Next up is the second Batman And Robin graphic novel by Grant Morrison. Batman Vs Robin continues the tales of Dick Grayson and Damian Wayne as the new Dynamic Duo. This week also sees the release of Grant's final issue of the single issue Batman & Robin comic, as he departs to the new Batman, Inc. title. Proud Lion favourite Paul Cornell will be taking over for the subsequent three issues. Comic Book Resources catch up with the British writer about these upcoming issues here.
Star Trek fans will want to check out the latest addition to the Haynes Manual series as this one looks at the various starships to bear the name Enterprise. From the NX-01 to the NCC-1701-E, this book continues the wonderful tradition of books such as Mr Scott's Guide To The Enterprise and the Star Trek The Next Generation Technical Manual. Well worth a look and purists, rejoice! This book ignores the recent film.
Warping way from the final frontier and over to a galaxy, far, far away (I know, I'm sorry, it's been a long day), we have the tie-in novel for Star Wars The Force Unleashed 2. Once again written by the guy who wrote the game's plot, Haden Blackman, this second volume of Starkiller's adventures features art from Omar Francia (Mas Effect, Star Wars Legacy).
Webcomics are everywhere these days and one of my favourites is xkcd. A volume zero collection of some of his best work has just been released and includes various bonus extras. This is published by a company that give the majority of the profit to the creator, then donate the rest to charity, so if you have every derived even a small amount of pleasure from the xkcd comics - this is a great way to give a little back to the man responsible.
Finally, we have softcover trade paperbacks of Siege, Battle For The Cowl and Green Lantern Agent Orange. Do pop in, our Christmas giftware range is starting to roll in too, including some freaking sweet Family Guy swag.
See you soon.
