Bezkamp #1

Aug 22, 2019

Writer Samuel Sattin and artist Jen Hickman have brought us another story to add to this collection. BezKamp is their collaborative Young Adult graphic novel, and it is a story that is absolutely worth telling today.

Bury the Lede #1

Oct 10, 2019

If you're a person that has ever binge-watched Law and Order: SVU, this might be the graphic novel for you. I don't care if you think you're not into comics. Read anyway. And if you are into comics? Also read. Because not only does Bury the Lede serve up a great killer and a questionable protagonist, it leaves you hanging, waiting for the next call on the police scanner. It makes you wonder where the lines for humanity are drawn within each of us, and how easily we could be pushed from protagonist to villain.

Coffin Bound #1

Aug 5, 2019

Coffin Bound is an unapologetic thrill-ride set in a weirdly poetic marriage of film noir and 90's grunge.

Coffin Bound #2

Sep 17, 2019

You're left wondering if it's really possible to change fate. And you're left with the grief and futility of it all.

Faithless #5

Aug 26, 2019

Confused, intrigued, and wanting a little more. I'm on the bus next to Faith, waiting to find out what secrets she's going to uncover about herself. Waiting to find out where Azzarello is driving this thing, and waiting to see what new horrors or carnal moments Llovet will have waiting for us when we arrive. Sometimes predictable, sometimes shocking. Sometimes a perfect mirror of human emotion, sometimes a reflection of seemingly thoughtless lust. Either way, it's definitely a ride.

Once & Future #1

Aug 16, 2019

Writer Kieron Gillen teams up with artists Dan Mora and Tamra Bonvillain to give us a new take on an olde world in Once & Future. Duncan McGuire discovers that his little old lady grandmother, Bridgette, is a retired monster-hunter. The action-packed pages that follow are but a taste of the world this team will unfold for us, one that blends a modern 2019 with one of the greatest legends in Western culture.

Strayed #1

Aug 8, 2019

Strayed is a look at humanity and the things that motivate us as people. It interrogates opposite ends of the motivational spectrum: greed and love. It also asks us some of the Big Questions: Where do we go next? At what costs? And above all, how did we, the human race, get lucky enough to have pets that love us so much?

Vengeance of Vampirella #1

Oct 3, 2019

Sniegoski and Maria have taken a long running comic with a ton of history and reopened it, and they have done it in a really warm, welcoming way. It's as if they have opened the doors to this Chaos world (a seemingly overwhelming and possibly inaccessible world to a new reader like myself) and said, "Come on in! Welcome to Vampirella! The blood is just the right temperature, and don't mind the dust. That's been settling for the last 25 years. Let's brush off this little horror story together. Join us!"
