Chew Volume 3: Just Desserts
by John Layman / Rob Guillory

Tony Chu is a federal agent with a special skill - he's cibopathic - he gets psychic readings from the things he eats. It's as gross as it sounds. This is the third story arc of the hit series.

Ex Machina Volume 10
by Brian K. Vaughan / Tony Harris

Vaughan sets the stage for the series finale here. It's politics meets superpowers.

MAD Magazine Special: Spy Vs. Spy #1
by The Usual Gang Of Idiots

MAD Magazine's hit slapstick spy series gets its own special. Featuring work by Jim Lee, Peter Bagge, Evan Dorkin, Tom Bunk, Bob Staake, Peter Kuper and, of course, the Usual Gang of Idiots.

Miss Don't Touch Me Volume 2
by Hubert / Kerascoet

The second volume of beautiful European comic.

The Walking Dead Volume 13: Too Far Gone
by Robert Kirkman / Charlie Adlard / Cliff Rathburn

Sometimes the normal life just seems too abnormal. The new trade collection is about 12 seasons ahead of the AMC TV show.
