"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

The good news is here! Dash Shaw's next Cosplayers book continues with Annie and Verti attending a 3-day anime convention called "Tezukon." During the convention they face off against a Street Fighter 2 Cammy, encounter two otaku boys who are obsessed with their youtube videos, and meet a manga scholar named Ben Baxter, who sleeps in a dumpster outside of the hotel and receives visions of the ending of Tezuka's unfinished "Phoenix" saga. Cosplayers 2 is a sweet, funny, melancholic ode to the anime convention experience!

Today, comiXology has is giving away digital copies of Jason's Werewolves of Montpellier. Typically $9.99, this comic can be yours for a few simple clicks of the ol' mouse! A faux werewolf-cum-burglar named Sven runs afoul of a real society of werewolves who don't take kindly to the pretender. So while Sven spends his days playing chess and poker with his friends, sketching his way through his picturesque chosen hometown, and coping with romantic dilemmas - both his and those of his best friend, the Breakfast-at-Tiffany's-obsessed Audrey, who has girl troubles of her own - little does he realize that a genuine threat to his life, and for that matter his humanity, is closing in on him.
Beware the full moon! Or should we say free moon?
"Werewolves [of Montpellier] has an artsy feel, but also plenty of humor, even in (or especially in) its more dramatic moments. [...] But it's mostly the subtle characterizations that still bring the greatest amount of personality out of his creatures that look like animals, but act so much like humans. [...] Overall, it's another great book from Fantagraphics in the Jason catalog. It doesn't shake the foundation of his style, but it does try a few new ideas and tells another fun story." - William Jones, Graphic Novel Reporter
"Tammy's enchanting smile and dazzling eyes are a gift of grace from Esther Watson." - Pendleton Ward, creator of Adventure Time
This week's offerings from the digital realm of comics.
The two Fantagraphics titles from Free Comic Book Day HAVE ARRIVED.
Meanwhile over at Sequential, they've rolled out the titles such as Today Is The Last Day of the Rest of Your Life by Ulli Lust. This too hot to handle title Ulli Lust's primal yet thoughtful graphic novel Today is the Last Day of the Rest of Your Life about a 17 year old's trek through Europe, no money, no extra clothes is ready to read digitally at Sequential!
Universally considered one of the very finest examples of the new breed of graphic novels coming from Europe, Today Is the Last Day of the Rest of Your Life won the 2011 Angoulême "Revelation" prize, and Fantagraphics is proud to bring it to English speaking readers.
"Daly's parody of the trek adventure - the template for ripping yarns from King Solomon's Mines to King Kong to Indy Jones to scads of video games - is a kind of slackers' SpongeBob Squarepants, earthier (of course) but as ingenuously absurd... [and] magnetically amusing." - Ray Olson, Booklist
