Bennett's Best for the week of June 7

By Greg Bennett

Legendary comic book store owner Greg Bennett provides a pair of recommendations for comic book lovers every week. Titles are either currently on specialty store shelves or shipping or in the near future. Fans can also click on the covers to appreciate the fine art.

30 Days of Night: 30 Days 'til Death from IDW Publishing

30 Days of Night: 30 Days ‘til Death, trade paperback, IDW Publishing ($17.99)

David Lapham strikes again. Young Liars has been fun, though I still miss Stray Bullets. But in his spare time, Lapham did this fantastic 30 Days of Night story, where a vampire who’s trying to keep a low profile has his plans mangled by a bunch of his moronic co-vampires. Funny, in a black humor way—what else did you expect?

Naoki Urasawa's 20th Century Boys Volume 2 from Viz Media

Naoki Urasawa’s 20th Century Boys Volume 2, trade paperback, Viz Media ($12.99)

(This has actually been out for a while in some places, and I think Vol.3 will be out in the next week or two.) My current favorite comic! Stephen King meets Alan Moore, with just a hint of Tezuka thrown in for good measure. If you want a bit more Tezuka in the mix, try Urasawa’s Pluto—his authorized updating of Astro Boy—also awesome!

Greg Bennett is the Owner/Manager of Big Planet Comics, a chain of pop art specialty stores in the DC Metro area with locations in Georgetown, Bethesda, Vienna, & College Park.
