Hate Annual #7
By Peter Bagge
The latest installment in the increasingly eccentric life of Buddy "The Crazy Guy Who Works at the Dump" Bradley involves a war over scrap metal, of all things, when Buddy's old pal and business partner Jay takes over the auto junk yard next door to Buddy's place in an attempt to capitalize on the rising value of used steel. Watch what happens when these two former collector geeks butt heads over a filthy, noisy, heavy yet priceless commodity! Also in this issue: The final chapter (which works as a stand-alone story) of Bagge's "Bat Boy" run in the Weekly World News, and Lovey once again gets involved with a Man of Mystery whose "mystery" is of questionable taste! And as always, there are other odds and ends that round out this one-man anthology.

The Last Lonely Saturday
By Jordan Crane
Largely wordless and cunningly rendered, this little book is sure to touch most folks. An old widower visits his departed wife's gravesite. Little does he know that what the day holds for him will result in this being his last lonely Saturday. Both sweet and bitter, realistic and fantasic, this heartwarming story of love and love lost is told in a beautiful two-color, red and yellow palette.

Mighty Mite the Ear Mite
By Tony Millionaire
This charming, clever little book contains two simultaneous stories: in one, a wandering ear mite searches for a home; in the other, a lonely ape escapes from the circus. The two stories intersect for a "happy" ending. Suitable for all ages!
32-page 4.5" x 4" hardcover $6.95
I don't usually link to reviews, but I wanted to share this Playboy review of Frank Thorne's Complete Iron Devil collection because it's a book that's probably flown under the radar of a lot of Fanta fans, since it's technically an Eros book. But it's also the most gorgeous package Eros has ever put together and it's some of Thorne's finest cartooning of his career, and if anyone deserves a little extra love, it's a legend like him.
