Declaration Daddies #1
by Sandra Gaybuns / Benjamin Spanklin / Daddy Sam
If the phrase "Founding Fathers" sends you into a dizzying, homoerotic fantasy, Declaration Daddies is for you. Warning: ADULTS ONLY!
Power Button #0
by Zack Soto
Adatra finds herself transformed into an Omega Knight to fight off an alien invasion, and then placed in a pocket of unreality for storage and later use. It's the beginning of a new sci-fi epic, rich in pinks and purples.
by Jean-François Di / Frédéric Genet
In case the title wasn't enough of a clue, this is the first issue in a gorgeous, ongoing samurai series. Samurai is a beautiful sword-based, feudal Japan epic.
by John Ulloa / Al Bondiga / Juan Navarro
This issue marks the start of a depraved "cereal killer" series. Tommy is haunted by his evil rabbit who convinces him to do terrible things. Or is he? Is Tommy simply trapped in a rabbit-based Son of Sam scenario? Either way, Tommy is a deplorable, depraved and funky new series.
Woody Guthrie And The Dust Bowl Ballads
by Nick Hayes
One of America's most important folk-singers, Woody Guthrie gave us "This Land Is Your Land." Hayes' book never misses a note and delivers a rich and beautiful graphic biography of the legend.
