Douglas looks forward to 2010

I'm putting together a list of interesting-looking comics-related books that are coming out in 2010--what I've got so far is under the cut. Note that this is only book-format projects (so e.g. no "Joe the Barbarian," which reminds me: whatever happened to "Warcop" anyway?), and only things whose release dates have been announced either by the publishers or Amazon. Everything, as usual, is subject to change. I welcome additional suggestions for this list from anyone who doesn't work for the creators or publishers of the things you're suggesting.
