by Simon Hanselmann
212-page full color 6" x 8.75" hardcover • $29.99
"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 is basically about a bunch of people (and "people") watching TV and getting wasted and fighting and fucking and pranking each other. Oh, and depression. What's not to love?!" - Peter Bagge
It's not listed on the Diamond Previews list for 8.20.14 but we check it's individual book page and it says August 20th!
"The book is an absolute essential for any hip hop head to read and any comic book fan to gander over." - Mass Appeal
"...Presents the facts in a nostalgic, faded-ink and rubbery realism of '70s Marvel Comics style, turning raps early innovators into larger than life heroes of history." - Spin Magazine
Waiting for the Great Pumpkin
by Charles M. Schulz
64-page black & white with spot color 5.75" x 5.75" hardcover • $9.99
"Novelty Peanuts books are the best kind of novelty book." - The Comics Reporter
