What are you excited to read this week? Talk to us @DavesComics!




THE ANATOMY OF ZUR-EN-ARRH: 
UNDERSTANDING GRANT MORRISON'S BATMAN
 Grant Morrison has made a career of redefining heroes, but his work with Batman has been the most comprehensive. From Arkham Asylum and JLA to his seven-year run on Batman, Morrison has redefined and reworked the Caped Crusader from the ground up. He's also introduced new characters (such as Damian Wayne) and new concepts (such as Batman, Inc.). The Anatomy of Zur-En-Arrh analyzes Grant Morrison's Batman, including how it understands and reinterprets Batman's long history. Featuring an interview with Grant Morrison.
BATMAN ARKHAM ORIGINS HC

 Based on the hit video game, this volume collects in print for the first time the ground-breaking, multi-path digital comic. This prequel story features an inexperienced Batman going up against crime bosses Black Mask and The Penguin for the first time!
COMPLETE JUNIOR & SUNNY BY AL FELDSTEIN HC

 Long considered to be prime examples of late 1940s "headlight" and "Good Girl" art comics, issues of Junior and Sunny have been quite difficult to find and very expensive to obtain. Until now! Created, written, and illustrated by the legendary E.C. Comics artist/writer/editor Al Feldstein for the notorious Victor Fox of Fox Feature Publications, The Complete Junior and Sunny presents the full run of these comics, along with a historical introduction by Grant Geissman. Although the stories are basically charming, "typical teenage" period pieces, Feldstein's artwork often pushes the envelope for the time, with titillating covers and often-suggestive images in the stories themselves. It's probably a good thing that Dr. Fredric Wertham never found out about Junior and Sunny! Seduction of the innocent, indeed!
COPRA ROUND ONE TP VOL 01

 They're ugly. They're mean. But up until today, they've always been loyal. So when one of their own betrays them, the men and women of COPRA have no choice but to turn their nightmarish skills back on everyone who ever looked at them funny. Collecting the first six issues of Michel Fiffe's super-hero revenge series focusing on the exploits of the COPRA team, a group of super-powered vigilantes and mercenaries betrayed by one of their own and hunted by the US government.
CORTO MALTESE UNDER THE SIGN OF CAPRICORN

 This book, the first of 12 volumes, launches the definitive English language edition of Hugo Pratt's masterpiece, presented in the original oversized B&W format with new translations made from Pratt's original Italian scripts.
Long before the term "graphic novel" entered the popular lexicon-ten years before Will Eisner's A Contract with God-Hugo Pratt pioneered the long-form "drawn literature" story. Corto Maltese set the standard for all adult adventure comics in Europe. By the mid-1970s Corto was the continent's most popular series and Hugo Pratt the world's leading graphic novelist.
Hugo Pratt's peripatetic sailor was featured in a series of 29 stories. The adventures of this modern Ulysses are set during the first 30 years of the 20th Century in such exotic locales as Pratt's native Venice, the steppes of Manchuria, the Caribbean islands, the Danakil deserts, the Amazon forests, and the waves of the Pacific.
Corto Maltese: Under the Sign of Capricorn collects the first six inter-connected short stories Pratt created in France in the early 1970s: "The Secret of Tristan Bantam," "Rendez-vous in Bahia," "Sureshot Samba," "The Brazilian Eagle," "So Much for Gentlemen of Fortune," and "The Seagull's Fault."

DARK ENGINE TP VOL 01 ART OF DESTRUCTION

 By blood and fury, Sym is born, and sent back in time to destroy her creators' enemies. With ribsword in hand, with gore in her curling locks, she is unstoppable. But the alchemists that made her do not realize that the engine that powers her is sentient, that it is the seed of their destruction.
Collects DARK ENGINE #1-4

DOCTOR SPEKTOR TP VOL 01

 TV legend. Wall Street wolf. Internet mogul. Tabloid bad boy. Master metaphysicist. Spiritualist. Monster hunter. Doctor Adam Spektor is all of these things... and less. For fifteen years, Spektor has traveled the globe to smoke out and defeat werewolves, vampires, ghosts, and everything else that goes bump in the night... and yet, his success has brought him no peace. Some part of him is missing, something he needs but can't name. But he's about to find what's missing in an unlikely place. A supernatural thriller that shatters all realities, courtesy of award-winning author Mark Waid (Kingdom Come, Daredevil, Indestructible Hulk)!

GRUBBY LITTLE SMUDGES OF FILTH GN

 In a land ruled over by a self-indulgent king, a prisoner uses whatever filth is at hand to create a work of great beauty on his cell door. When it is discovered, those who seek to profit from his talents drag the artist through the thorny forests and sterile deserts of the kingdom. Only when he stands before the King himself will we learn of his true nature. In the grand SLG Publishing tradition of introducing new creators and daring new concepts we proudly present Daniel Reed and his cautionary tale about an artist who has created the world's most beautiful piece of art using his own boogers.
HENNI GN

 In a fantastical world where old traditions and religion dominate every aspect of life, lives a girl named Henni.

In 1972, Marvel Comics marched into a new era - an era in which super heroes increasingly reflected the world's turmoil and social unrest.
