Twelve Gems + Luba and Her Family on comiXology
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Lane MilburnGilbert Hernandezdigital comicscomiXology 7 Jul 2014 6:08 PM

Twelve Gems  
Awww, yeah, our digital library groweth. Twelve Gems by Lane Milburn is a sci-fi epic taking place somewhere in the outer cosmos, beyond reckoning or observation. The mysterious Dr. Z has enlisted three space heroes to search the galaxy for the fabled Twelve Gems of Power: the hulking alien-brawn Furz; the beautiful and deadly sabre-wielding Venus; and the soft-spoken canine technician, Dogstar. They meet many strange and storied characters on their journey, but none so strange or sinister as their dear benefactor himself. With a heavy dose of humor and wall-to-wall action, this is one of the most action-packed and funny books of the year.

$15.99 for for 224 pages and we absolutely DARE you not to laugh while reading it via the comiXology app.

"an absurd sci-fi epic with joyful, inky art reviving the best of high-school-desk ballpoint masterpieces and 1970s side-of-van murals...For fans of pulpy storytelling, fans of silly action, and fans of fans, this book is the gem you must seek." -Jake Austin, Chicago Tribune

Luba and her family
Gilbert Hernandez's characters bid "Farewell, My Palomar" as they exit the Eden of the Central American town in Volume 10 of the Love and Rockets Library. When an earthquake levels Palomar, ever-resourceful Luba and her clan are on the move once again. In the U.S., the lives of Maria's daughters - mayor and matriarch Luba, body-builder Petra, and therapist/film star Fritz - and their families become more and more intertwined.

In Luba and Her Family, you'll find 229 pages for only $14.99 plus think of some of that shelf space you'll save!  

"Gilbert Hernandez created some of the most memorable characters in popular fiction." - Los Angeles Magazine

Waiting for the Great Pumpkin and Snoopy's Thanksgiving - Covers

Waiting for the Great Pumpkin and Snoopy's Thanksgiving - Inside Pages

It's a double delight: the advance copies of our two new Peanuts gift books are here! These books are sure to make great holiday presents for everyone in the family.

In Waiting for the Great Pumpkin, we've collected all the best strips featuring Linus' fervent idolatry and proselytization of the Great Pumpkin — a mythic character believed to rise from the pumpkin patch every Halloween to dole out gifts to good boys and girls.

In Snoopy's Thanksgiving, Snoopy and his dearest friend Woodstock both approach the impending holiday with varying degrees of dread, disappointment, and expectation management.

Great Pumpkin and Snoopy's Thanksgiving are due out in August and September respectively. Check out their previews, and, planning ahead for the holidays, why not pre-order them now?

The Lonesome Go by Tim Lane - Cover Uncovered
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under Tim LaneComing Attractions 7 Jul 2014 4:45 PM

The Lonesome Go by Tim Lane - Cover

It is our great pleasure to reveal the final cover artwork for Tim Lane's upcoming book, The Lonesome Go, wherein he continues to explore the Great American Mythological Drama that he began with his first, award-winning book Abandoned Cars.

Haunting, rich, gritty, and filled with the familiar imagery, mythologies, and icons of middle America, The Lonesome Go is best described as a tapestry of loosely connected stories, tied together by the experience of wandering.

We're anticipating an August 2014 release for the book, though of course you can pre-order your copy now!
