A Rule Is To Break: A Child's Guide to Anarchy
by John Seven / Jana Christy
This isn't a comic, it's an illustrated kids book, but it's a kids book designed to help encourage anti-authoritarian, rebellious kids.
by Kevin Jackson / Hunt Emerson
British writer Jackson and cartoonist Emerson tackle Dante's epic, but with the intent to fix it up a bit. They bring in some thing the classic sorely lacks - jokes. The Inferno re-imagined in funny comic form.
by Alexandro Jodorowsky / Jean-Claude Gal
This hardcover collection presents Jodorowsky's sci-fi/fantasy collaboration with artist Gal in English for the first time. Diosamante is the story of a beautiful and cruel Queen, draped in mysticism.
by Jon McNaught
From Nobrow Press comes McNaught's gorgeous story of several average lives being lived, set against the backdrop of the oncoming Autumn. It's an average town, average people, having average moments - but it's also beautiful.
The Technopriests Supreme Collection
by by Alexandro Jodorowsky / Zoran Janjetov / Fred Beltran
An extravagant and limited slipcased hardcover collection of Jodorowsky's sci-fi tale of a journey to become a technopriest. One of Jodorowsky's best works - collected into a well-deserved deluxe format.
