Folks have been clamoring for The Girl from H.O.P.P.E.R.S., the second trade paperback collection of Jaime Hernandez 's complete "Locas" stories from Love and Rockets Vol. 1, which is out of print (for now). We have a load of slightly damaged copies sitting in storage, so we're now making them available for our mailorder customers at half cover price! These aren't too torn up — just some light dings and scuffs from transit, storage and handling — so if you're not too concerned with the condition of the book and just want a readable copy, and/or you love bargains, it's your lucky day!

Prince Valiant

75 years ago today Hal Foster's Prince Valiant debuted in newspapers with the strip above (click to see it bigger) and quickly one of the most beloved comic strips of all time.

This includes our new series of hardcover volumes (including pre-orders on Volume 5), which critics and fans agree are the definitive collections of Foster's masterpiece; it also includes our recent editions of the Prince Valiant Companion and the handful of our previous softcover editions we have left in our warehouse.
