The Complete Crumb Comics Vol. 5: "Happy Hippy Comix" – New Reprint
By Dash Shaw
$35.00 / HC / 340 pgs / FC / 8.5 x 11
From the author of Bottomless Belly Button comes a stunning new graphic novel set in a fantastical amusement park. New School follows a teenage boy’s search for his brother, which leads at first to wonderment and delight but ultimately to alienation and disillusionment. Unlike anything in the history of the comics medium, New School is at once funny and deadly serious, easily readable while wildly artistic, personal and political, familiar and completely new.More Details & 18-Page Excerpt
By Dash Shaw
$3.99 / Comic / 32 pgs / FC / 6.5 x 10
This one-shot comic book will feature three all-new, full-color short stories that explore var- ied dystopian societies. From a Sherlock Holmes-style investiga- tor who must complete his high school degree to filmed ‘volun- tary’ nudity to prison camps full of jaded children, Shaw pens each story with his signature style and unique spin, all in 32 pages.More Details & Preview Images
The Squirrel Machine – Now in Paperback
By Hans Rickheit
$19.99 / SC / 192 pgs / BW / 7 x 10
An anachronistic parable for the convulsive elite — now in paperback. Meticulous, strange, and hauntingly beautiful, this evocative and enigmatic book will ensure the inquisitive reader a spleenful of cerebral serenity that will take exposure to vast quantities of mediocrity to dispel.
