Required reading from the week in books and comics.

Michael Crichton's rip-roaring swashbuckler "Pirate Latitudes" was discovered among the late author's files after his 2008 death. Is Crichton on his way to becoming the literary world's Tupac?

Also in stores this week:
-- Dean Koontz's mountaineering mystery "Breathless" should pass the time during Thanksgiving weekend flight delays. And as luck would have it, it's likely available at the airport bookstore.
-- The graphic novel "Luna Park," from DC/Vertigo, is a sprawling mob tale set in Brooklyn's Coney Island.
-- "Criminal" creators Ed Brubaker and Sean Philips tackle supervillains with the pulpy noir series "Incognito." It has mad scientists and zeppelin battles. What else do you need?
