Dark Knight Returns: The Last Crusade
by Frank Miller / Brian Azzarello / John Romita / Bill Sienkiewicz
Frank Miller continues his surprisingly readable streak of revisiting his Dark Knight classic story with this prequel to his legendary Dark Knight Returns. The fate of Robin (Jason Todd) is right here.
Fight Club 2
by Chuck Palahniuk / Cameron Stewart
If you've missed Tyler Durden, this comic sequel finds him ten years after the events in the first book. He's living the life mundane with the help of modern medicine. But that doesn't last long. Oh yeah, Tyler's a dad now, so this is kinda the perfect Father's Day gift.
How To Talk To Girls At Parties
by by Neil Gaiman / Gabriel Ba / Fábio Moon
Ba and Moon adapt this utterly charming Neil Gaiman story. Boys crash a party where the girls are way out of their league. Like WAY out of their league.
Ringside Volume 1: Kayfabe
by Joe Keatinge / Nick Barber
Prefect for the wrestling enthusiast. A look inside the world of the squared-circle and the characters who are drawn to it.
Sex Criminals Volume 3: Three the Hard Way
by Matt Fraction / Chip Zdarsky
The new volume of the hit series Sex Criminals. If you're on the fence about this series, let me just say there's a "semen-demon."
