Lesbian gladiators in space: Welcome to COSMOKNIGHTS!

For this ragtag band of space gays,
liberation means beating the patriarchy at its own game
.

Pan’s life used to be very small. Work in her dad’s body shop, sneak out with her friend Tara to go dancing, and watch the skies for freighter ships. It didn’t even matter that Tara was a princess… until one day it very much did matter, and Pan had to say goodbye forever.

Years later, when a charismatic pair of off-world gladiators show up on her doorstep, she finds that life may not be as small as she thought.

On the run and off the galactic grid, Pan discovers the astonishing secrets of her neo-medieval world… and the intoxicating possibility of burning it all down.

THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN Concludes!

Welcome to the story to end all stories. Two decades of literary League lunacy have all been building to this, the most ambitious meta-comic imaginable.

After an epic twenty-year journey through the entirety of human culture – the biggest cross-continuity ‘universe’ that is conceivable – Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill conclude both their legendary League of Extraordinary Gentlemen and their equally legendary comic-book careers with the series’ spectacular fourth and final volume, The Tempest. Tying up the slenderest of plot threads and allusions from the three preceding volumes, The Black Dossier, and the Nemo trilogy into a dazzling and ingenious bow, the world’s most accomplished and bad-tempered artist-writer team use their most stylistically adventurous outing yet to display the glories of the medium they are leaving; to demonstrate the excitement that attracted them to the field in the first place; and to analyse, critically and entertainingly, the reasons for their departure.

Opening simultaneously in the panic-stricken headquarters of British Military Intelligence, the fabled Ayesha’s lost African city of Kor and the domed citadel of ‘We’ on the devastated Earth of the year 2,996, the dense and yet furiously-paced narrative hurtles like an express locomotive across the fictional globe from Lincoln Island to modern America to the Blazing World; from the Jacobean antiquity of Prospero’s Men to the superhero-inundated pastures of the present to the unimaginable reaches of a shimmering science-fiction future. With a cast-list that includes many of the most iconic figures from literature and pop culture, and a tempo that conveys the terrible momentum of inevitable events, this is literally and literarily the story to end all stories. Originally published as a six-issue run of unfashionable, outmoded and flimsy children’s comics that would make you appear emotionally backward if you read them on the bus, this climactic magnum opus also reprints classic English super-team publication The Seven Stars from the murky black-and-white reaches of 1964. A magnificent celebration of everything comics were, are and could be, any appreciator or student of the medium would be unwise to miss The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Volume IV: THE TEMPEST.

Co-Published by Top Shelf Productions (US) and Knockabout (UK).

George Takei’s THEY CALLED US ENEMY is a month away!

It’s real! 

When George Takei was a young child, he and his family spent years incarcerated by their own country in barbed-wire military camps across America. Today, Takei’s firsthand account of those haunting childhood memories — and how they shaped his astonishing life — is not just an essential chapter in American history, but an all-too-timely reflection on our own era.

They Called Us Enemy will launch simultaneously in stores and at Comic-Con, the week of July 16. The book’s creative team — co-writers George Takei, Justin Eisinger, Steven Scott, and artist Harmony Becker — will take the stage at the American Library Association’s Annual Conference next week, as a warm-up for the big launch at San Diego Comic-Con!

Stay tuned for exciting updates coming soon, including TV, radio and much more!
