Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge and Donald Duck: The Son of the Sun by Don Rosa - Excerpt
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under previewsDon RosaDisneyComing Attractions 23 Jun 2014 6:34 PM

In this first volume collecting Don Rosa's prolific and well-loved work, Scrooge McDuck is curating a museum exhibit to display his vast collections of riches and wonders, making the bold statement that he is "both the world's richest duck and the champion treasure hunter." This statement is pompously challenged by Scrooge's longtime rival Flintheart Glomgold — and thus begins a frenzied contest to find a rare, long-lost Incan treasure: the legendary gold stores of Manco Capac, the Son of the Sun!

The Son of the Sun will be out in stores by late September. Read the first part of our intrepid ducks' journey with a downloadable 18-page excerpt, then continue the heart-pounding, high-flying adventure by pre-ordering your copy here.

Waiting for the Great Pumpkin by Charles M. Schulz - Excerpt
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under PeanutsComing AttractionsCharles M Schulz 23 Jun 2014 1:52 PM

There are few greater joys in life than being able to revisit the stories of one's childhood. Except, perhaps, getting to share them with others in a cute, fun-sized book!

Charles M. Schulz's Peanuts strips are a cornerstone of American 1950's-60's culture, and his beloved characters, including Snoopy, Woodstock, Charlie Brown, Linus, and Lucy remain household names to this day. In our latest pocket-sized Peanuts gift book, Waiting for the Great Pumpkin, we've collected those Halloween-themed strips revolving around Linus' unshakeable belief in, and proselytizing of, the Great Pumpkin — a mysterious figure who rises from pumpkin patches every Halloween to bring presents to good kids.

Read our 13-page (1.1 MB) excerpt and, while you're at it, avoid the fall rush and pre-order your copy now!

An Age of License by Lucy Knisley - Excerpt
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under previewsLucy KnisleyComing AttractionsAn Age of License 5 Jun 2014 3:01 PM

August just keeps looking better and better! Among the dizzyingly beautiful books we're excited to bring to you in two months is best-selling cartoonist Lucy Knisley's newest book, a travelogue documenting her trip throughout Europe in the fall of 2011.

An Age of License follows Lucy as she navigates new countries, new experiences, and new romance, all rendered in an often-whimsical, sometimes stream-of-consciousness style that perfectly captures her moments of introspection between the memories she captures on the road. This part narration, part sketchbook format takes us right into Lucy's thoughts and revelations.

Megahex by Simon Hanselmann - Excerpt
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under Simon HanselmannpreviewsMegahexComing Attractions 3 Jun 2014 5:00 PM

Meet Megg, Mogg, and Owl. Megg is a drug-addicted, depressed witch, and Mogg is her familiar — a cat who doesn't seem to respect her boundaries. Owl is an anthropomorphized owl. This first collection of Tasmanian-born Simon Hanselmann's online comic stars characters struggling with poverty, drug use, depression, sexuality, and their sometimes abusive relationships with each other. Megahex will feature three seasons of Megg and Mogg from the past five years, as well as over 70 pages of new material.

Our downloadable excerpt dives right into Megg, Mogg, and Owl getting high and getting in trouble. There is a party where Werewolf Jones shows off a party trick that results in an ambulance ride to the ER. Afterwards, the remaining party-goers have a "Horrible Feet Contest", which Werewolf Jones returns just in time to win.

Megahex will be out in August, but you can reserve your copy now!
