Upcoming 3/23/2011

My Pick of the Week doesn’t actually ship through Diamond Wednesday, but there’s neat stuff on the ComicList all the same.

First up is another of NBM’s Louvre comics, produced in partnership with the legendary museum. This one’s called The Sky over the Louvre, written by Bernard Yslaire and illustrated by Jean-Claude Carriere. This time around, readers are taken “back to the very origins of the Louvre as a museum: the tumultuous years of the French revolution.” Other books in this series include Glacial Period, On the Odd Hours, and The Museum Vaults: Excerpts from the Journal of an Expert.

Oni Press delivers a hardcover collection of the first story arc of the excellent private detective thriller Stumptown, written by Greg Rucka and illustrated by Matthew Southworth. It’s about an out-of-luck PI trying to pay off a gambling debt by tracking down a casino owner’s granddaughter.

And if you missed Jason Shiga’s Bookhunter (Sparkplug) the first time around, it’s been offered again and seems to be due for arrival on Wednesday. I’m the only one who missed it the first time around, aren’t I?
