Listening for the Letterbox, April 23rd, 2008

A regular feature where I look ahead to what I have on order from the releases of the week. This is obviously not a definitive release schedule - for that, try Diamond for the list of next weeks releases and this weeks releases (updated every monday).

As usual, I will put the titles in reverse order of anticipation (ie the bottom of the pile being the most anticipated;

Northlanders #5 (Vertigo)

Sort of lost interest with this Orcadian/Norse action adventure. It started off well. Will pick up this month to see if it can hold my interst. Nothing particularly wrong with it, it just doesnt really do much for me.

From Dave Sim (Cerebus), an intriguing mix of parody and superheroism. The top of my list this week. If you are interested, you just need to check out the official site -
