WHY CAN’T WE GET ALONG?! COMICS’ GREATEST LOVE/HATE RELATIONSHIPS

Comic Books have always had their fair share of great love stories... men and women who find love despite their differences or adverse circumstances. They’re great and all, but for our money, there’s nothing more interesting than the classic comic book Love/Hate relationship. Heroes in love with villains... scientists in love with their creations-gone-awry... there’s just something more interesting (and juicy) about a relationship where you’re never sure who wants to kill who first... and this month, we look at some of comics’ most messed up couples!

This month’s featured creators are…

MARK SIEGEL & :01 FIRST SECOND BOOKS In 2006, First Second Books launched an ambitious program of graphic novels in every age category, in a wide range of themes and styles, with talent from all over the world. In its first year, American Born Chinese became the first comic ever nominated for a National Book Award and soon after, the first to win the coveted librarians’ Printz Award. Many beloved indie cartoonists make up First Second’s stellar author line-up, from Sara Varon to Scott McCloud, Jessica Abel to Paul Pope, Eddie Campbell to Joann Sfar, and many others — including seasoned talents and newcomers, with projects in fiction and non-fiction, for children and for adults.

Recommended :01 First Second Titles

ADVENTURES IN CARTOONING: This amazing, hilarious caper for young, aspiring cartoonists will breed the next generation of comics authors, indie and otherwise. Decidedly for children, I wish I could send it back in time to my seven-year-old self! Adventures in Cartooning SC (FEB108477)

GUS & HIS GANG: Raunchy and rowdy, Chris Blain’s love letter to the Western genre is slapstick, yet graphically stunning. Although all the tropes of cowboy movies are there, they’re all incidental to the real story: chasing women. This book is decidedly for adults. Gus & His Gang GN (AUG084060)

THE UNSINKABLE WALKER BEAN: Aaron Renier’s high energy, exuberant storytelling made waves with his first book Spiral Bound. Here’s an astonishing series debut, a breathless pirate tale with an unbeatable cast of characters. This one is decidedly for everyone. The Unsinkable Walker Bean (MAY101031)

ASTERIOS POLYP: by David Mazzuchelli. This hardly needs introducing. A visual feast, and a work that keeps giving more, with every reading. Asterios Polyp GN (MAR094389)

WHO WILL RISE WHEN THE MARVEL UNIVERSE IS GRIPPED BY FEAR ITSELF?

1

March 4, 1933. The United States was in the throes of the Great Depression. The stock market crash of 1929 had broken the economy. Millions were homeless. Millions more were out of work. The United States, a land of unparalleled prosperity, was gripped by fear — Where would the next meal come from? Would there be a roof over one’s head to sleep at night? As the storm clouds of despair gathered and other countries gave into fascism and war to counter the growing fears of a world in collapse, the United States elected a new President, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, who, when he took the stage at his Inauguration, said to a nation gripped by the dark hour of the soul: “the only thing we have to fear is fear itself — nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance.” Flash forward nearly 80 years. The financial collapse of 2008 — failed banks, foreclosed homes, an unemployment rate flirting with 1-in-10 out of work — has shaken the very foundations of American society. The gap between the haves and the have-nots has grown to a chasm. Politicians prey upon the fears of the electorate. The threat of a terrorist attack is ever-present. Fear has become a fact of daily life. This summer, someone will feed off of that fear to bring the Marvel Universe to its knees in the seven-issue event Fear Itself! Written by Matt Fraction and featuring artists Stuart Immonen, Wade Von Grawbadger, and Laura Martin, Fear Itself will force many of Marvel’s heroes to stand against the a villain that thrives on the fear of others. Sin, the new Red Skull, has uncovered a secret that dates back to the earliest days of the age of heroes, and its revelation will rend families and friends, while also bringing together eight of the worthiest men and women on Earth to oppose the rising force that feeds upon evil itself.

 MARVEL PREVIEWS, $3.99, 56 Pages, Page 1

“ Truthfully, has there ever been a time when we’ve need our heroes more? And what about us? What about the Avengers that live deep inside of each one of us? Are we truly the ones we’ve been waiting for? What happens when the world gets to a point where despair is so prevalent and seems norm? Like us, will our heroes stand and fight, or will they give in to what they fear the most?” — Joe Quesada The journey into the Marvel Universe’s “heart of darkness” begins in March’s Fear Itself: Prologue from writer Ed Brubaker and artist Scot Eaton, a World War II tale starring Captain America and the Invaders, then continues in April with the first issue of Fraction and Immonen’s Fear Itself. When fear manifests itself, some will cower, some will cope, some will overcome it, and some will draw upon unexpected courage and demonstrate their true heroism. Have you the courage to read Fear Itself this April?

THE DISCOVERY OF AN OLD SECRETS AND AN OLDER EVIL WILL GRIP THE MARVEL UNIVERSE IN THE THROES OF FEAR, AND HEROES MUST FIND THEIR INNER COURAGE TO COMBAT IT. FEBRUARY 2011 52562_TXT_0009.p1.pdf PDF For SoftProofing 150DPI Softproofs / Épreuves-écran

DEATH VALLEY MEANS ADVENTURE FOR MICKEY MOUSE Not long after Mickey Mouse’s debut in the animated short “Steamboat Willie,” Walt Disney’s beloved character made his arrival on the comic strip pages of newspapers across the country. Fantagraphics Books has brought to modern audiences some of the most iconic comic strips of the past century with their gorgeous collections — Charles Schulz’s Peanuts, Hank Ketcham‘s Dennis the Menace, Hal Foster’s Prince Valiant — and now Mickey Mouse joins their ranks with Walt Disney’s Mickey Mouse Volume 1: Race to Death Valley, a 260-page hardcover collection that features some of the earliest comic strip adventures of the Mouse! Written and drawn by Mouse Master Floyd Gottfredson, Mickey Mouse’s adventures took him on wild, two-fisted pulp-style adventures alongside his girlfriend Minnie and her Uncle Mortimer as they sought to outwit villains like Pegleg Pete. For readers who think of Mickey Mouse as a jovial, happy-go-lucky character, these early adventures of Mickey are sure to astonish and entertain as they paint a different view of the iconic character! Complete with essays by Warren Spector (creator of the Epic Mickey video game), Floyd Norman, Thomas Andrae, and David Gerstein, Walt Disney’s Mickey Mouse Volume 1: Race to Death Valley presents some of Mickey Mouse’s earliest stories, along with historical commentary and other rare ephemera in the same Fantagraphics style that has archived other classic comic strips for a new generation of Disney fans!

COMICS’ LEGENDARY ANTHOLOGY DARK HORSE PRESENTS RETURNS Twenty-five years ago, an Oregon comic shop owner named Mike Richardson had an idea — a small press anthology of cutting edge work by some under-the-radar and up-and-coming creators. Creators like Paul Chadwick and Chris Warner got their start in the pages of Dark Horse Presents, while established creators like Frank Miller and Matt Wagner tried out new concepts and properties like Aliens were introduced to comic book readers. Dark Horse Presents returns to comic shop shelves this April with an all-new Dark Horse Presents #1. The ethos is the same, but the format is bigger and, this time, full-color! An all-star line-up of creators — Neal Adams, Paul Chadwick, Howard Chaykin, Richard Corben, Harlan Ellison, and Frank Miller, among many others — provide a wealth of stories for the 80-page debut issue. From a sneak-peak of Xerxes, Frank Miller’s long-awaited prequel to 300, and a prose short story by science-fiction grandmaster Harlan Ellison to a new Concrete story from creator Paul Chadwick and a new story from the legendary Neal Adams, Dark Horse Presents features top-notch work from comic legends of yesterday, today, and tomorrow! A legendary anthology, featuring legendary creators, returns from Dark Horse Comics this April with Dark Horse Presents. Don’t miss out!

GO CAMPING WITH DONALD DUCK WITH THIS NEW STATUE

385 12

Donald Duck’s adventures as the troop leader of the Boy Scouts was chronicled in the 1938 animated short, “Good Scouts.” A hiking trip through Yellowstone National Park with his nephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie in tow should have been an educational experience, except that, for Donald, everything he did went horribly wrong! Nominated for an Academy Award, “Good Scouts” featured storyboards by master Duck artist Carl Barks, and Enesco brings the Scout leader Donald Duck to life from the original animation reference with the Walt Disney Classics Collection: Happy Camper Donald Duck Figurine. Standing 5” tall, the figurine sees Donald ready for his outdoor adventures, and for any Scout or Duck fan, this will make a unique addition to their collection!

When the Ghostbusters came to TV in the late ’80s, fans were delighted to see all of their favorite characters back in form, bustin’ ghosts and other assorted supernatural creeps in their usual fashion. Featuring the voice of Lorenzo Music (the voice of TV’s Garfield) as Peter Venkman (originally played by Bill Murray… who voiced the movie Garfield), The Real Ghostbusters was a big hit and ran for six years. Now DST and Art Asylum have captured the animated Real Ghostbusters in all their glory! Featuring Egon and Ray in their uniforms, plus Janine and, of course, Slimer, these Minimates are a great addition to DST’s Ghostbusters Minimates line!

After revolutionizing the worlds of design and storytelling in 1984, Dean Motter’s Mister X returned half a decade later to reinvent alternative comics again for a whole new audience. Returning to the story of Radiant City’s mysterious architect and his sleepless quest to repair the flaw in its design that is driving its citizens mad, the second version of Motter’s creation used the blackand-white format to introduce deeper shadows and more expressionistic angles to its Art Deco world. With an edgier look and starker themes, this take on Mister X is as groundbreaking today as it was twenty years ago.

SCI-FI / FANTASY

CELEBRATING 25 YEARS My main tie with Dark Horse has always been what I call “The Robert E. Howard Connection.” The early days of Dark Horse were the late days of my own involvement with Marvel’s rendition of Conan, my second time around. I thought it might be fun to mine some of the lesser-known REH creations such as Cormac Mac Art, Bran Mak Morn, and Esau Cairn of Almuric. Mike Richardson enthusiastically signed aboard on behalf of Dark Horse, and I got to work. The late E. R. Cruz did a fine job on the Cormac Mac Art miniseries. Regarding REH’s short novel Almuric—I was delighted with the graphic novel Dark Horse made out of the comics serialization that artist Tim Conrad and I had done for Epic Illustrated. I thought we had a potential winner in the two-issue adaptation of REH’s Kings of the Night, which costarred Bran Mak Morn and King Kull, the latter known to comics readers from his Marvel days. I felt Dark Horse was a breath of fresh air in what had become little more than a two-company field when it came to heroic adventure. I watched a number of Dark Horse projects I’d have loved to be involved with pass me by . . . Tarzan/John Carter of Mars, Tarzan vs. the Moon Men . . . and then the early days of the Dark Horse Conan, Kull, and even Solomon Kane. From time to time Mike and I would talk about my doing something with one of the REH heroes after Dark Horse had established its own separate identity with them.

Photo by Alan Waite.

Finally, as the fortieth anniversary of Marvel’s Conan the Barbarian #1 approached, Mike suggested that I do something with them to celebrate. I enthusiastically agreed, and after a short time, the current twelve-issue Conan: Road of Kings was born. As these words are written, only the first issue of that series has gone on sale, but, after more than a decade away from my favorite Cimmerian, it’s good to be back. Since I just turned seventy, I’m hoping it’s not another ten years before the ghost of Robert E. Howard stands at my shoulder again, bidding me to write some of the stories that he didn’t quite get around to in his own mere thirty years. Whatever happens, though, I’m grateful to Dark Horse for bringing me aboard for a celebration that has real meaning for me. Long may Dark Horse ride! —Roy Thomas .

PLANETARY/BATMAN DELUXE EDITION HC Written by WARREN ELLIS Art and cover by JOHN CASSADAY

Planetary, the archaeologists of the unknown, cross paths with Batman on the trail of a killer in this new, Deluxe Edition hardcover. When Planetary — Jakita Wagner, Elijah Snow and the Drummer — travel to Gotham City, they mean business. Wagner, Snow and the Drummer track an amoral killer to Gotham City, prepared for battle. What they aren’t prepared for is the Dark Knight! Of course, Batman doesn’t exist on the same Earth as Planetary, which means the killer has worked in some very strange ways! Now the killer’s reality-distorting technology is pulling, twisting and shifting the heroes through untold versions of Gotham City – and Batman! This new hardcover also features Warren Ellis’s script for this story.

“Every so often, one of the masters of the comics medium will release a project which reminds the entire industry and beyond of both their vitality as well as the power the medium holds. Joe Kubert’s YOSSEL is just that.” — NEWSARAMA

A HARVEY AND EISNER AWARD NOMINEE!

“Kubert’s straightforward, heartfelt portrayal of the Nazi era’s horrors . . . has its own undeniable power.” — BOOKLIST

YOSSEL TP

Written by JOE KUBERT Art and cover by JOE KUBERT

JOE KUBERT LIBRARY

In this harrowing yet inspiring “alternate reality” story, legendary artist Joe Kubert explores what would have happened if he and his family never emigrated from Poland to the US in 1926. Yossel is a fifteen-year-old boy who could have grown up to be a great artist. But in Nazi-occupied Poland, he and his family are deprived of their rights, homes and possessions, and forced to live in the devastating conditions of the Warsaw Ghetto. YOSSEL, April 19th, 1943 is his story, told through Kubert’s raw and evocative pencilled art. Yossel’s sketches of super heroes ingratiates him to the Nazi guards, but it is through his journal drawn on scraps of paper that he depicts the full horror of his existence. With great emotional power, YOSSEL draws a dark and brutal reality of ghetto life, of the stories he hears of the concentration camp atrocities, and ultimately portrays the final act of defiance and courage that drives the fatal uprising of the Warsaw Ghetto.

DONG XOAI, VIETNAM 1965 TP

“One of the greatest war comics ever made.” — Publishers Weekly Written by JOE KUBERT Art and cover by JOE KUBERT Joe Kubert, one of the most influential storytellers in comics history, tells the harrowing, true story of a detachment of Special Forces soldiers on a simple recon mission into the village of Dong Xoai, Vietnam, that turned suddenly deadly. DONG XOAI, VIETNAM 1965 has a unique perspective, since Kubert based the story on extensive information gathered from the surviving members of the unit. It covers not only the action of the event but the details of deployment and build-up that led to the deadly encounter for these young American G.I.s. For decades, Joe Kubert has shown readers the true face of war – all the suffering, horror, loss and heroism of our fighting forces. With DONG XAOI, he goes a step beyond to tell a gut-wrenching tale of sacrifice that will linger long after you are done reading.

HELLBLAZER: CITY OF DEMONS TP Written by SI SPENCER Art and cover by SEAN MURPHY

When John Constantine is run over by a truck, it takes a little while for England’s nicotine-fueled magus to realize that he’s perched between life and death. After a few weeks of hospital rehab, Constantine finds the London streets very different from when he left them behind as a series of occult murders and mutilations demands his attention. The common denominator points back to the ER where Constantine was admitted. Collecting the 5-issue miniseries! Also included: “Another Bloody Christmas,” a tale by Dave Gibbons originally presented in VERTIGO WINTER’S EDGE #3.

DMZ VOL. 10: COLLECTIVE PUNISHMENT TP

Written by BRIAN WOOD Art ANDREA MUTTI, NATHAN FOX, DANIJEL ZEZELJ and DAVID LAPHAM Cover by BRIAN WOOD In this collection of tales from DMZ #55-59, citizens and soldiers – new characters and old – weather the storm of a brutal “shock and awe” bombing campaign on the DMZ. Included is a story concerning the enigmatic Wilson, the self-professed protector of Chinatown and confidant to series star Matty Roth who has always said he’d own the DMZ in the end. Now, with the U.S. poised to steamroll its way into the city, it’s do-or-die time for the old man. In another tale, Matty lends his Liberty News secure phone line to DMZ citizens to reach out to loved ones outside the city – a direct violation of his contract. Is this the beginning of a new, compassionate Matty looking to atone? Or are more cynical motives at play?

For the first time in hardcover, a powerful tale from the ALL-STAR SUPERMAN team of Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely! Morrison and Quitely deliver the emotional journey of WE3 – three house pets weaponized for combat by the government – as they search for “home” and ward off the shadowy agency that created them. With nervous systems amplified to match their terrifying exoskeletons, the members of Animal Weapon 3 (WE3) have the firepower of a battalion. But as prototypes, they’re slated to be permanently “decommissioned” after their testing is complete, causing them to make a desperate run for freedom. Relentlessly pursued by their makers, WE3 must navigate a frightening world where their heightened abilities make them as much a threat as those hunting them – but a world in which they must find a home. This amazing hardcover features new story pages by Morrison and Quitely.

NAT JONES & JAY FOTOS incentive cover

NAT JONES APRIL 20 32 PAGES / FC $3.99 On February 13, 1968, during the darkest days of the Vietnam conflict, the gates of hell opened wide, unleashing new and hungry life into the countless war-torn dead. The horrors of war take a back seat as an American tunnel rat crawls into a Viet Cong warren turned undead slaughterhouse, rotting snipers fire their final bullets from treetop perches, and freshly filled body bags twitch and rise from the slab. There are zombies in the razor wire… Horror comics creators NAT JONES, MARK KIDWELL and JAY FOTOS return to the jungles of Vietnam, expanding the zombie epic started in the original one-shot ’68 with this four-issue mini-series of undead military horror. Each issue features multiple covers by Jones and Fotos, full 22page stories in series continuity and a bonus 4-page short that expands on the zombieinfected world of 1968 by horror titan Tim Vigil. Welcome to 1968… and the end of the world.

W/ BRUCE MCCORKINDALE, RICK HILTBRUNNER & PETER PALMIOTTI

The Apocalypse has been cancelled for lack of interest, but a few demonic forces didn’t get the memo and are bent on starting something come judgment day. Heaven chooses the dim-witted but wellmeaning Golly Munhollen, a semi-employed carnival ride repairman and demolition derby champion, to serve as earth’s guardian in the fizzled end times. With the help of his carnival pals — Vaughn, the tattooed man; Pig, the fat lady turned strong woman; Miguel, the dog-faced acrobat boy genius; and Satan, former monarch of Hell working the midway for cigarette money — Golly must face off with were-hogs and trailer park vampires in this blend of lowbrow humor and high octane horror.

Min-Woo Hyung, the stunning Korean creator behind the original Priest graphic novels, is coming at you again with a whole new series—this time in color. Take all your assumptions about manga formats and throw them out the window. Ghostface will be presented by Tokyopop as 7” by 10” standard US graphic novels that read left to right, just like a Marvel or DC book. Even better? They’re all full color. Thousands of the world’s most ruthless criminals are locked away in the ruins of a city on a wind-swept island called Sodo. Out of the writhing mass of vice and violence, the strongest of the ganglords have clawed their way to the top and set themselves up as local gods of the prison island.The corporate city-states which jailed these dangerous men and women rely on the unending tides of gang war to keep the criminals stranded—but since only the strong survive, the island instead serves as an incubator, bringing out the worst and most extreme in its captives. One such super-criminal has escaped Sodo, has broken into high-tech corporate labs on the mainland, and has stolen a chemical that could change everything. Hyung’s art work has always been razor-sharp, winding like a snake-strike as his characters’ fight scenes whip across the page. Fantastic sprays of bullets, blood, and sweat arc across Hyung’s characteristically painstaking background work.The series feels as though it’s set in Akira’s Neo-Tokyo, with a riff on the mind-bendingly dangerous cast of Street Fighter.This time though, there are no intricate side stories; the plot surges ahead like a bullet, straightforward and bloodthirsty, creating an edge-of-your-seat actioner from one of Korea’s leading lights. ~Sarah Martinez

He’s also got a tender soul, a pure-hearted crush, and the makings of a budding artist. A horrible YouTube video of Jimmy dancing in his living room becomes viral and makes every sweet and hopeful thing about Jimmy seem utterly pathetic. Everyone from fellow classmates to the clerk at the corner store has seen the video, and Jimmy finds himself a celebrity in his town, just for the wrong reasons.

THE BOX MAN HC

ONWARD TOWARDS OUR NOBLE DEATHS GN (W/A) Shigeru Mizuki A landmark publishing event by one of Japan’s most famous cartoonists. Shigeru Mizuki is the preeminent figure of Gekiga manga and one of the most famous working cartoonists in Japan today. Onward Towards Our Noble Deaths is his first book to be translated into English and is a semi-autobiographical account of the desperate final weeks of a Japanese infantry unit at the end of World War II. The soldiers are told that they must go into battle and die for the honor of their country, with certain execution facing them if they return alive. Mizuki was a soldier himself, and he uses his experiences to convey the devastating consequences and moral depravity of the war. MATURE THEMES SC, 6x9, 368pgs, B&W..........................................................$24.95

(W/A) Imiri Sakabashira Enter the strange world of Imiri Sakabashira, whose denizens are zoomorphic creatures that emerge from one another as well as their equally bizarre environs. The Box Man follows its protagonists along a scooter trip through a complex landscape that oscillates between a dense city, a countryside simplified to near abstraction, and hybrids of the two. Sakabashira weaves this absurdist tale in a seamless tapestry constructed of elements as seemingly disparate as Japanese folklore, pop culture, and surrealism. MATURE THEMES HC, 6x8, 128pgs, B&W.............$24.95

RED SNOW HC (W/A) Susumu Karsumata Red Snow continues D+Q’s groundbreaking exploration of the fascinating world of Gekiga in this collection of short stories drawn with great delicacy and told with subtle nuance by legendary Japanese artist Susumu Katsumata. The setting is the pre-modern Japanese countryside of the author’s youth, a slightly magical world where ancestral traditions hold sway over a people in the full vigor of life. MATURE THEMES HC, 7x9, 240pgs, B&W.............$24.95

REUNION SC (W/A) Pascal Girard In the summer of 2009, Pascal Girard received an invitation to attend his ten-year high-school reunion. Initially dismissing the idea of attending, he quickly changes his mind when he receives an e-mail from Lucie Coté, the girl he had a huge crush on in high school, who wonders if he would like to accompany her. Pascal becomes flustered with joy, but he must keep his uncontrollable infatuation a secret from his girlfriend, Julie, and he must do something about his weight. He takes up jogging every day until he reaches his goal of shedding fifty pounds. The now-slender Pascal arrives at the big event, full of fervent anticipation, but his fantasies become cruelly deflated with each conversation he has with his former classmates.

A SINGLE MATCH HC RED-COLORED ELEGY HC (W/A) Seiichi Hayashi Uninvolved with the political movements of the 1960s, Ichiro and Sachiko hope for something better, but they’re not revolutionaries; their spare time is spent drinking, smoking, daydreaming, and sleeping — together and at times with others. Both in their relationship and at work, Ichiro and Sachiko are unable to say the things they need to say, and like any couple, at times say things to each other that they do not mean, ultimately communicating as much with their body language and what remains unsaid as with words. MATURE THEMES HC, 6x9, 240pgs, B&W.............$24.95

(W/A) Oji Suzuki In this collection of hauntingly elliptical short stories, Oji Suzuki explores memory, relationships and loss with a loose narrative style, filling each tale with a sense of unfulfilled longing. He plumbs the dissolute depths of human psychology, literally bathing his characters in expansive shadows that paradoxically reveal as much as they obscure. Though he touches on many of the same themes as his contemporaries in the field of post-war alternative manga, Suzuki’s ever-shifting narrative approach and dashes of surrealist humor distinguish his work from his peers.

His instantly recognizable and unique style catapulted him into the pop culture stratosphere and cemented his place in the pantheon of animation greats. Independently Animated chronicles Plympton’s life from his childhood of Saturday morning cartoons to his most current and certainly adult-skewing animation. Foreword by Terry Gilliam.

ALIVE CHARACTER DESIGN FOR GAMES ANIMATION & FILM SC

330

Follow this lively and entertaining book as it illuminates the basics of effective character design. Whether male or female, animal, monster or alien - certain rules apply that animate the figure and elevate it from a two-dimensional plane. Knowledge of anatomy and proportion provides a framework and is crucial to attaining a convincing characterization. Facial expressions and body language complement the whole, conveying emotion and intention through subtle nuances of line and form. Utilizing a broad assortment of sketches and finished illustrations, the fundamentals of process are revealed - from the divergent contours of gender to the anthropomorphization of animals, from the constraints of morphology on motion to the effects of environment on new species. A must for working and would-be animators alike! (C: 0-1-2) SC, 11x8, 176pgs, FC ................$29.95

Digital art has become a pervasive medium and highly influential in popular culture. From the movies we see to the video games we play, we regularly immerse ourselves in realms not our own, experiencing reality through new and prismatic filters, often learning something about ourselves in the process. Fantasy+ 3 shows how traditional fantasy art still has its place in our lives, complementing the explosion of CG art as it inspires a new wave of artists. Featured artists include: Raúl Cruz, Peter Ferguson, Eric Fortune, Tom Fowler, Eric Joyner, Terese Nielsen, Adrian Smith, Shaun Tan, and more! (C: 0-1-2) SC, 9x12, 192pgs, FC ...........$29.95
