Naughty And Nice; Bruce Timm

Tomorrow there's a lot of great comics coming out, such as Justice League, Flash, Aquaman, Bulletproof Coffin, Walking Dead, Fantastic Four, and Unwritten, being that it'll be New Comic Wednesday, but for sheer (pun intended - grin!) eye candy wonderment, all of them will pale when stacked alongside Bruce Timm's new art book, Naughty And Nice!
Bruce Timm first made his name known to comic book art lovers everywhere as the visual creator of Harley Quinn and for his work on the Batman Animated series of the 1990s.

Naughty And Nice, The Good Girl Art Of Bruce Timm (actually all of the gals within probably aren't that good, if you know what I mean, nudge, nudge, wink, wink!) is $50.00, but it's also 300 pages of glorious full color over-sized Bruce Timm illustrations that you won't see collected anywhere else and really, if you have any idea of how much Timm's original art sells for, well this is the bargain of the day!

Whispers; Joshua Luna

Have you read Ultra, Girls, or Sword by the Luna brothers? If you have, you already know that any new comic book project by the Luna brothers will surely be good and different. This week the first issue of Whispers came out from Image, written and drawn by Joshua Luna, the first time either of them has worked alone (to my knowledge), and I'm going to call it easily the best new series of this young year (Brubaker and Phillip's Fatal, also published by Image and released last week, is also great)!

All of the Luna brothers' comic book projects are vastly different from the one they'd mostly recently finished, and Joshua Luna's Whispers, is no exception. The central character, Sam, has been having dreams, which he thinks aren't really dreams and also starts being able to sort of astrally project himself to different places and people (and being invisible at the same time). With the way this first issue unravels, I can't imagine anyone not picking up following issues, seriously this gets going right away! And this may be the first comic book featuring a main character who has OCD (and this is a big part of the first issue)!
