It's a packed week of new releases, with a pair of Studio Ghibli titles hitting Blu-ray in North America (along with "True Blood's" weakest season to date), while Magnet pumps out a big, bloody, brash horror anthology and delivers some kickass Thai martial arts action.


Up here in the Northeast we're preparing for an epic snowstorm; and on our way back from the grocery store, we're going to stop by the comics shop and check out some new manga. After all, even if the power goes out, we can still read manga by candlelight. In fact, that sounds sort of nice.

With a single exception, everything out this week is another volume in a long-running series. The one new story is "Beautiful Creatures," the graphic novel based on the Caster Chronicles novels. Check out our preview of the first chapter and watch out for the movie, which premieres next week.


"In a town with no surprises, one secret could change everything."

That's the tagline for "Beautiful Creatures," the graphic novel based on Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl's Caster Chronicles novels; the movie based on the story is set to premiere on February 14.
