I came in to work to find Twelve Gems on my desk this morning. No, not actual precious jewels, but something almost as valuable: an advance copy of Lane Milburn's glorious, hilarious sci-fi comedy epic! Three mercenaries hired by an enigmatic scientist traverse the galaxy in search of a dozen legendary stones with mysterious powers. Fast spaceships, exotic worlds, grody aliens, cosmic mysteries, and blazing action blend with sly satire and all-out laughs, zapping your eyeballs with Milburn's dense, detailed, rough-hewn artwork, printed in midnight blue on white.

We're ahead of schedule with this book and it's not scheduled to be in stores until July, but we'll have limited copies for sale on the festival and convention circuit this Spring and Summer, and of course you can pre-order your copy right now.

Walt Disney's Mickey Mouse Vol. 5: Outwits the Phantom Blot by Floyd Gottfredson - Excerpt
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under previewsMickey MouseFloyd GottfredsonDisneyComing Attractions 31 Mar 2014 11:26 AM

An unsung cartooning master, Floyd Gottfredson produced the newspaper-strip adventures of Disney's flagship character in near-anonymity for decades, and our series finally gives him the spotlight he deserves. The newest volume, Walt Disney's Mickey Mouse Vol. 5: Outwits the Phantom Blot, finds our intrepid rodent hero getting into and out of dangerous scrapes on the open seas, in the urban underworld, on a remote tropical island (or is it?), and in his own back yard.

Our downloadable excerpt includes 8 weeks of the "Mighty Whale Hunter" continuity, wherein Mickey's thirst for adventure leads him and Goofy into hot water and hijinks on the high seas, plus the Table of Contents and a few introductory pages. We expect the book to be available in June; pre-order now to reserve your copy.

Cosplayers
by Dash Shaw

32-page full-color comic book • $5.00

Ships on: April 16, 2014 (subject to change) — Pre-Order Now  

Annie and Verti are two teen cosplayers with too much time on their hands. Annie wants to act, and Verti wants to be a photographer/filmmaker. Together, they embark on making a film starring themselves and featuring an unsuspecting cast of extras they record via hidden camera. What could possibly go wrong? A one-shot dose of humor and melancholy from the creator of New School, BodyWorld, and Bottomless Belly Button.

witzend - Cover Uncovered

witzend

At last we can reveal the slipcase artwork for our two-volume complete collection of witzend, coming this Summer. Occupying the fertile but seldom-trod ground between the undergrounds and the "overground" mainstream (sometimes called "groundlevel comics"), witzend was created in 1966 by Wallace Wood and ran for 13 issues over nearly two decades, providing a forum for unfettered expression by creators used to toiling under commercial restrictions — in other words, a place for Wood and his friends to let their freak flags fly. And oh, what a list of friends he had. We'll get into that later... in the meantime, see how many of them you can identify in this dazzling design! (Presale is pending — there's a Gordian Knot we're still untangling.)

Prince Valiant Vol. 9: 1953-1954 by Hal Foster

Another gorgeous volume of Hal Foster's magnum opus is off to the printer! Prince Valiant Vol. 9: 1953-1954 collects two more years of quests, danger, sorcery, family milestones, treachery, and comic relief from one of the greatest illustrators to ever grace the comics page. It almost goes without saying, but a reminder can't hurt: these volumes are scanned from original engraver's proofs, meaning that the strip has never looked better and making this the ultimate Prince Valiant series.

This volume is expected to be available in early July; look for more sneak peeks between now and then, and pre-orders are being taken now!
