Megahex available on comiXology
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Simon Hanselmanndigital comicscomiXology 27 Aug 2014 4:22 PM

Megahex
Today is the DAY, digital readers. Megahex by Simon Hanselmann is available. This is normally where'd we make a joke about digitall rolling up a joint to go with your reading but not everyone is as lucky as Washington (where pot is smoke a-freely). SO how 'bout instead you make some trashcan punch?

Megg is a depressed, drug-addicted witch. Mogg is her black cat. Their friend, Owl, is an anthropomorphized owl. They hang out a lot with Werewolf Jones. This may sound like a pure stoner comedy, but it transcends the genre: these characters struggle unsuccessfully to come to grips with their depression, drug use, sexuality, poverty, lack of work, lack of ambition, and their complex feelings about each other in ways that have made Megg and Mogg sensations on Hanselmann's Girl Mountain Tumblr. This is the first collection of Hanselmann's work, freed from its cumbersome Internet prison, and sure to be one of the most talked about graphic novels of 2014, featuring all of the "classic" Megg and Mogg episodes from the past five years as well as over 70 pages of all-new material.

These 214 joke-soaked pages are yours for only $22.99 so grab your copy of Megahex today on comiXology!

"Simon Hanselmann is the real deal, for sure. He captures that stoner stay-at-home life so accurately that I actually find his comics really depressing and thank god I don't ever have to hang out with anybody like that ever again." - Daniel Clowes

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!

Megahex by Simon Hanselmann

Look what showed up on Tumblr yesterday (and in our inboxes): Simon Hanselmann's final cover art for Megahex, his eagerly-awaited collection of Megg, Mogg, & Owl comics! We're not sure yet exactly where this will land in our schedule, but its convention debut will definitely be at SPX in September, and it is available for pre-order. For now we'll just let the artwork speak for itself... gee, it looks like Simon has publisher pride, huh? We love you too, Simon!

Spring-Summer 2014, part 10: International Innovators
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Simon HanselmannOlivier SchrauwenKickstarterComing Attractions 19 Nov 2013 5:52 PM

Our campaign to support our Spring-Summer 2014 season on Kickstarter is ongoing, and we're continuing to spotlight the books in question, a couple at a time. We've also put our season catalog online for you to browse. (Please note that all artwork, contents, prices, specs, and release dates are preliminary and subject to change.)

Arsene Schrauwen prelim cover

Arsene Schrauwen
by Olivier Schrauwen

250-page full-color 8" x 10" hardcover • $34.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-730-7 

In 1947, the author's grandfather, Arsene, traveled across the ocean to a mysterious, dangerous jungle colony at the behest of his cousin. Together they would build something deemed impossible: a utopia of modernity, in the wilderness — but not before Arsene falls in love with his cousin's wife, Marieke. Whether delirious from love or a fever-inducing jungle virus, Arsene's loosening grip on reality is mirrored by the reader's uncertainty of what is imagined or real by Arsene. This first full-length graphic novel from the critically-acclaimed Olivier Schrauwen is an engrossing, sometimes funny, slightly surreal and often beautiful narrative.

For a Kickstarter pledge of $50 or more, pre-order this book signed by Olivier Schrauwen while supplies last! Or, for a pledge of $40 or more, get an exclusive Risograph print by Ollie! (Or increase your pledge for one or the other to $90 and get both!)
