Love In Vain: Robert Johnson 1911-1938
by J.M Dupont / Mezzo
This beautiful hardcover looks at many of the legends that surround iconic blues figure Robert Johnson.
by Grant Morrison / various
Morrison unleashes his creativity on the DC Universe's multiverse - and the results are often strange, odd and a lot of fun - it includes his retelling of The Watchmen.
Super Weird Heroes Volume 1
by Fletcher Hanks / various
This huge tome scours the real of public domain to find and collect some of comicdom's weirdest, forgotten and ill-advised heroes. It's superhero comics as "outsider" art.
by Hazel Newlevant
This poignant, personal and intimate mini deals with love, identity, gender and abuse.
