Coming Attractions: June 2011

.

Ah… Memorial Day approaches, and with it, summer vacation.  Day after day of nothing which must be done, but full of possibilities!  Maybe an escape to the air-conditioned refuge of your local library.  Perhaps a day spent on the porch, sipping something cold and sinful (I prefer Brown Cows, served in a large ice tea glass).  Or maybe hiding away up in a hayloft, or deep in a cool root cellar, where no one can find you.  Whatever your preference, there’s nothing like a good book to make you forget the world around you.  Below are some suggestions for your summer reading pleasures.  (And if you need a nap to avoid the afternoon heat, give your kids something to read.  It’ll keep them quiet long enough for you to recharge your batteries.)

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!)
