Collections & Graphic Novels
Clumsy: Jeffrey Brown’s debut work; a book praised by Chris Ware and hailed by James Kochalka as his “favorite graphic novel ever.” Clumsy is the bittersweet story of a year-long, long-distance relationship, told through snippets of everyday life, drawn in a simple and elegantly awkward style that heightens the emotional impact and leaves you reminiscing about your own past love affairs.
Captain Pixel: A new virus has been introduced and it is now up to Captain Pixel, a polar bear and the mysterious wizard, Adobus, to stop this rapidly growing plague.
Divine Intervention: Marc Graham, a conflicted, contract killer, could hardly be considered a hero. Things change when he stumbles into an ancient conflict between the Templar agency, a clandestine organization that protects powerful artifacts from falling into the wrong hands, and strange, demonic forces seeking to control the world. After gaining mysterious, angelic powers from a freak accident Marc must dive headfirst into a dangerous new world where he is hunted by deadly monsters who will stop at nothing to unlock the secret of his new powers and possess them for themselves.
