Collections and Graphic Novels:
Pistolwhip Vol.1: A naive bellhop’s struggle towards a life’s ambition, an expatriate musician on the run, a young woman’s battle with her paranoia and her past, and the mysterious figure who wants to control their lives. Set in an exotic atmosphere of a by-gone era, Pistolwhip is a marvelous tale crafted with a crime noir feel and an artistic style reminiscent of the best European graphic novelists.
Broadcast: The TV Doodles of Henry Flint: The mind of Henry Flint is a galaxy of beautiful atrocities – a nightmare factory where the bestial becomes benign, the mundane magical. Henry Flint is at once a full-service doodling savant and a one-man alien zoo, and this never-before-seen collection of his personal work is an attempt to chart a single, crooked leg of the artistic journey he takes daily. Welcome to the best of the bestiary!
Baja: Illustrator Nathan St John and writer Ben Wagner bring modern noir to the West in the original graphic novel Baja. In this sexy, twisting thriller, Hil and Zack – a beautiful woman and a man who knows better – must escape a stalker whose fate is tied to their own. St John and Wagner play with conventions, leading readers in unexpected directions with a story that deftly weaves two tales of love, sex, greed, and betrayal. St John’s distinctive art style perfectly matches the shadowy criminal world of Baja.
HALO: Fall of Reach- Boot Camp: This is where it all began. Before he was Master Chief, he was John — a boy stolen from his parents and conscripted into the SPARTAN II program on the fortress world of Reach. These are desperate times in the human colonies, with galactic civil war just a heartbeat away, and only Dr. Catherine Halsey understands the terrible price humanity must pay to keep from destroying itself. Collecting Halo: Fall of Reach – Boot Camp #1-4

Courtney Crumrin & The Night Things #1 & #2: Courtney liked her life. She had friends scattered throughout her city neighborhood. She enjoyed school, and her teachers and classes were the best. But that was before. Now Courtney’s parents have dragged her out to a high-to-do suburb to live with her creepy Great Uncle Aloysius in his spooky old house. And while her parents have slipped easily into their new social status, Courtney now has to deal with snobby classmates and the strange shadowy visitors that often come to visit her uncle. Now, instead of kids from the neighborhood, her only friends are ghastly ghouls and spooky spirits. Hmmm… maybe this won’t be so bad after all…
