New Arrivals: December 9, 2009

No holidays this week, which means comics will be arriving per the normal Wednesday schedule. In the bevy of new books though, what's worth your time and what's not? I can't say exactly what you shouldn't get, but I can say that Witchblade fans should get the Witchblade Takeru Manga SC Collection. The price is $19.99, but you're getting is worth so much more. Written by Kobayashi Yasuko and Sumita Kazasa the omnibus collects the two-volume Witchblade anime series into one collection. In this, Takeru is a young Japanese girl living in a convent run by Buddhist nuns that also manages to house the Witchblade. Of course she doesn't realize this until demons attack the convent and she springs into action with the Witchblade on her arm. The anime ran last year on IFC and was actually a delightful take on the character and actual Witchblade. If you haven't checked it out this might be a great place to start if you like your traditional comics characters in anime form. Enjoy! New Arrivals: December 9, 2009
