The Books of 8/4

Then I'm done for another week! (which starts, uh, tomorrow) BIRTH OF A NATION: OK, so I haven't actually read it yet (it's at the top of my pile), but it's Kyle Baker art, and it looks faboo, so demand your LCS get you a copy.

LOEG VOL 2 TP: OK, League v 2 is finally out in SC, time for you to buy it if you've been waiting this whole time. It's the bestest adventure ever! Also The TP/GN of the Week

LUCIFER VOL 6 MANSIONS OF THE SILENCE TP: I'm really digging this, and I personally think it is the strongest thing Vertigo is publishing at the moment. Reads really good in trade. Get it!

STAR TREK KEY COLLECTION VOL 1 TP: Dude, the Enterprise has rockets coming out of the back! What could be cooler than reading Star Trek stories from people who had never seen the show in thier lives? Well, OK, a lot, but for pure howling kitsch, here's your comic for the week.

TRANSMETROPOLITAN VOL 11 TALES OF HUMAN WASTE TP: Oddly is numbered "0" on the spine, while 11 on the invoice. Should probably be Pi or thereabouts. Contains "I Hate it Here" and "Filth of the City" since those semi-floppies (sloppys?) are OP. Funny and brutal stuff.

ULTIMATE X-MEN VOL 8 NEW MUTANTS TP: Bendis' first run at the X-Men, and it's uneven, but also contains a beautiful Wolverine story that's almost worth the price of admission by itself.

And there you go, the significant TPs of the week! Or so I thought. What did you think this week?
