Now in stock: Uptight #3 by Jordan Crane
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under new releasesJordan Crane 9 Jun 2009 3:31 PM

Uptight #3 by Jordan Crane

Uptight #3
By Jordan Crane

With Uptight #3 Jordan Crane continues to prove himself to be one of the most skilled and versatile cartoonists of his generation. First he maps uncharted territory of graphic melancholia with a brand new serialized tale of infidelity, "Vicissitude," in sumptuous greytone. He follows that up with the first installment of "Freeze Out," a delightful new all-ages adventure starring Simon & Jack, the boy and cat heroes from Jordan's classic tale The Clouds Above!

Castle Waiting Vol. II #15 by Linda Medley

Castle Waiting Vol. II #15
By Linda Medley

As the cast pairs off to commence moving Jain and Pin (and a pampered chicken) into the castle, the conversations range far and wide, from romance to war politics. You'll learn that the wise man always has the right goat for the job, and that sometimes you just have to say "Hooray for ridiculous." Plus, you'll find out what happens when a giant moves to your town (hint: making a pie requires semaphore signals).
