Ah… July….The Fourth, dog days, and… San Diego!

So much good stuff!  Bestselling author Christopher Moore writes a graphic novel!  Ray Bradbury, Grandmaster, has two classics adapted!  Grant Morrison writes about superheroes and religion!  Disney and Hitler, together again!  Girlie comics from Marvel!  “Good Girl” comics from Jim Silke, Doug Sneyd, and Dean Yeagle!  Great Women comics from Gail Simone, Colleen Coover, Megan Kelso, Jill Thompson, and Corinne Mucha!  (Can’t find female creators on the newsstands?  Check the bookshelves!)  And lots of masterful work from Jim Lee, Todd McFarlane, Jim Starlin, and Floyd Gottfredson!

The following is a selection of new comics titles due to be published in June 2011. This list is not comprehensive, just what I’ve discovered browsing the Internet.Below, you’ll find selected titles which caught my interest.If you would like to browse forthcoming graphic novels and related books at your leisure, click here. These are not necessarily titles I will purchase, but which I will definitely look at once they arrive at my local comics shop or bookstore.  If you click that link above, you’ll see all the graphic novels at BN.com, sorted by date.  Please be advised that publication dates are not set in stone, titles may change, and covers may be altered.  Also, your local comics shop might receive copies before your local neighborhood website or library.I consider my tastes to be rather eclectic. If you feel I’ve neglected or slighted a title, publisher, or creator, please feel free to mention it in the comments below. Yes, you may promote your own work, but please include the ISBN for easy searching (and shopping!)
