Quick Picks 12/10/09

Monster volume 1 is out this week. And some other cool things. Probably.

Welcome back, my friends, to our weekly Quick Picks! As always we've got a lot of material out this week, so we'll start with the video-- your guide to what you really NEED to buy this week --and follow up with the release list as usual!
  
    

 
You may also notice a couple of 12/01 dates in there-- these are TOKYOPOP releases that weren't listed on Amazon when I created last week's list, just so they get their fair time here.

Futurama cameos are the last thing I'd expect to see on AV! Family Guy next? Good stuff.

@FoxxFireArt: If Betty White comes here personally to chastise me, I will HAPPILY alter the video. By myself if I have to. Because Betty White is freakin' awesome.
 
Hey, wait a sec, how come no one cared the LAST time I slapped Geekachu?!

Betty White is awesome. Also, last time Geekachu had it coming.

Ooku looks interesting.

@FoxxFireArt: Fair enough ;)
 
@Glitch: It is, though I haven't snatched up volume 2 just yet. Volume 1 you can pick up for the art alone, but the best part is that the characters and story actually are really awesome too. :)

For a split second I pictured Ōoku as being another take on the whole mass population decline kind of thing seen sometimes in sci-fi. Anyway it sounds like an interesting premise. 
 
*sees Geekachu taking one hell of a slap* T_T Poor Geekachu.
