Angelman

Nicolas Mahler The funniest super-hero parody since Kurtzman & Wood’s “Superduperman!” Angelman’s powers (including empathy and being a good listener) prove less than adequate to deal with villains — not to mention the comics industry and its fans.  Product Details...
$18.99



Athos in America

Jason An all-original collection of full-color graphic novellas with more tales of love and loss among the dog- and cat-headed: “The Smiling Horse,” “The Brain That Wouldn’t Virginia Woolf,” “A Cat From Heaven,” “Tom Waits on the Moon,” and more.  Product Details...
$24.99



Barack Hussein Obama

Steven Weissman What does it mean to live in America today? If you know there’s no right answer to that question, you’ll want to read Barack Hussein Obama — a book about you; about your country, your family, your president.  Product Details...
$22.99



Blacklung

Chris Wright One of the most impressive graphic novel debuts in recent years, a sweeping, magisterially conceived, visually startling tale of violence, amorality, fortitude, and redemption, one part Melville, one part Peckinpah.  Product Details...
$24.99

Cruisin' with the Hound: The Life and Times of Fred Toote

Spain Rodriguez Memoirs of the artist's misspent youth. Raunchy, hilarious, and often violent as hell, an unsentimentally nostalgic trip to half a century ago — the anti- Happy Days, set to a true rock ’n’ roll beat.  Product Details...
$19.99



Dal Tokyo

Gary Panter The long-running punk/sci-fi strip finally collected in all its confounding visual and verbal richness in one giant volume. One doesn’t read Dal Tokyo; one is absorbed into it and spit out the other side.  Product Details...
$35.00

Flannery O'Connor: The Cartoons

Flannery O'Connor Before she became a literary legend, she wanted to be a cartoonist. Her rough-hewn technique combined with her acidic observations to form a visual precursor to her prose. This is the first book collecting this early visual work.  Product Details...
$22.99



Glitz-2-Go

God and Science: Return of the Ti-Girls

$19.99



Heads or Tails

Lilli Carré A stunningly designed and packaged collection of some of the most poetic and confident short fiction being produced in comics today, touching on ideas of flip sides, choices, and extreme ambivalence.  Product Details...
