The Black Dahlia

The Black Dahlia
by James Ellroy / David Fincher / Matz / Miles Hyman

Filmmaker Fincher teams up with Matz and Hyman to turn James Ellroy's 1940s true crime murder mystery into a gorgeous, full color, graphic novel.

I Feel Weird

I Feel Weird
by Haleigh Buck

Haleigh was a beloved bookseller at Atomic Books for a couple years. And then she disappeared. I Feel Weird explains what she was going through. Oh yeah, and she also draws me looking like Shaggy from Scooby-Doo. Whadda jerk.

Island #8

Island #8
by Brandon Graham / Michael Deforge / Simon Roy

This issue of the sci-fi anthology comic features an awesome new story by comics genius Michael DeForge.

See You At The Buck

See You At The Buck
by Rob Brulinski

This photo zine by Brulinski focuses on a demolition derby in Quarryville, PA. If you've not experienced the world automotive entertainment, Brulinski's awesome photography is the next best thing - only without you getting mussed by the blood and the blood and the beer.
