Collections & Graphic Novels:
Will You Still Love Me if I Wet the Bed?: 82 pages! What started out as an exercise in keeping a personal comics journal, quickly evolved into Liz Prince’s first solo graphic novel. Described as a mix between Jeffrey Brown and James Kochalka, Liz’s comics are comprised of short vignettes that capture all the cute, gross, and endearing aspects of relationships. It’s the perfect book for all those fans of autobiographical comics who want to see a happy ending.
A Treasury of 20th Century Murder: The Terrible Axe Man of New Orleans: 82 pages! Nights of terror! A city awash in blood! New Orleans right after the First World War. The party returns to the Big Easy but someone looks to spoil it. Grocers are being murdered in the dead of night by someone grabbing their axe and hacking them right in their own cushy beds! The pattern for each murder is the same: a piece of the door is removed for entry, the axe is borrowed on the property, and the assailant aims straight for the head! Why? How could he fit through that piece in the door? The man is never found for sure but speculations abound which Geary presents with his usual gusto! “Geary’s black-and-white palette and line shading give the right historical feel to his tales, and he has a sharp eye for the details of a time period. That, combined with his historical research, makes his story all the more horrific as the reality of it is impossible to escape.” -Graphic Novel Reporter “He takes his readers back to that time, draws us into the fearful moments of the spree, and leaves us more than a little unsettled afterwards. THE FULL FIVE TONYS!” -Tony Isabella, The Comics Buyers Guide.
