Batman: Black And White Volume 4

Batman: Black And White Volume 4

The newest installment in the acclaimed Batman Black & White series reminds us of how awesome the Dark Knight looks when you strip away the color and focus on some really intense black and white line work. Batman Black & White - the cool Batman series.

Colour Me Good: Benedict Cumberbatch

Colour Me Good: Benedict Cumberbatch
by Mel Elliott

My favorite British actor with the most British-y name, my favorite Sherlock Holmes and my second favorite Khan gets his own coloring book!

Forbidden Activities For Neglected Children: A Coloring And Activity Book

Forbidden Activities For Neglected Children: A Coloring And Activity Book
by Skinnner!

This activity book is for the more advanced child who really wants to get into some serious drawing. Will appeal to the aspiring Metal, demonic, psychedelic, punk rock and just plain monster doodler.


by Mark Evanier / Sergio Aragones / Tom Yeates

Not since Archie Vs. Punisher (yes, that crossover really existed) has there been a match-up so odd and yet so fun. This is what it looks like when a parody character meets the character he parodies. It's the first of a several issue mini-series.

League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen Volume 3: Century

League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen Volume 3: Century
by Alan Moore / Kevin O'Neill

This nice, chunky hardcover collects the last 3 series of issues from Moore's acclaimed League series into a Technicolor delight.

Zombies Have Issues

Zombies Have Issues
by Greg Stones

In his follow-up to the surprisingly funny and oddly beautiful Zombies Hate Stuff, Stones still manages to find laugh-out-loud zombie scenarios while delivering captivating art.
