Get Out Your Hankies
by Gabrielle Bell
Any time there's a new book by Bell is a cause for excitement. This mini diary comic deals with subjects like technology, small towns, pickling, mushrooms, spider webs, and, of course, bears.
Kindred: A Graphic Novel Adaptation
by Damian Duffy / Octavia E. Butler / John Jennings
Here Butler's sci-fi masterpiece has been adapted into a stunning graphic novel.
It's been over a year ago now that we learned that Motorhead's frontman Lemmy Kilmister was killed by death. This coloring book let's us all celebrate the life of a hard living rock icon.
