In this month’s PREVIEWS catalog: fantasy action meets family heartbreak in the irresistible all-ages gem SUPERS!
“A great adventure that will delight young and old alike.” — Bande à Bulle
“Grabbing you with its action (midnight mischief, combat), its themes (teamwork, self-improvement, coming of age, friendship, love), its humor, and its freshness, Supers pleases right away…. one of the most beautiful young-fantasy comics in recent years.” — Comixtrip
ACBD Award Winner! Real life meets super-powered action when three refugee siblings start a new school year as the ultimate illegal aliens.
“Will you tell me about Mom?” “I don’t remember much, you know.” “You can make it up. I don’t mind.”
Mat, Lili, and Benji aren’t from around here. Abandoned on planet Earth, hiding far from their home, they can’t even use their powers in public, for fear of being discovered. Starting at a new school is hard enough already…
Supers won the first ever Youth Award from ACBD (the French Association of Comics Critics) thanks to its rich blend of family tension, super-thrills, and classroom drama, all presented in gorgeous full-color artwork. Now it’s your turn to meet these awesome immigrants. Welcome to the family!

Explore the 4th dimension with issue #3 of LOEG: TEMPEST!
Like something from an unbelievable parallel world where there were once comic publications exclusively for girls, this third jaw-dropping installment of Moore and O’Neill’s astonishing swan-song takes us from a boarding school in Big Brother-dominated England to a civic ball with a Frankenstein monster in Toyland, pausing for some 1960s pop-art espionage and a breath-taking musical interlude along the way.
Concluding with a demonstration of an unusual nuclear defense system (for which the reader will require 4-D spectacles thoughtfully provided) and containing Seven Stars classic “Showdown in Space,” you dare not miss issue three of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Vol. IV: The Tempest.
Co-published by Top Shelf Productions (US) and Knockabout Comics (UK).

Watch Nate Powell delve into COME AGAIN’s murky magic!
National Book Award winner Nate Powell has been hitting the road to celebrate his stunning new graphic novel Come Again… and for those following along at home, you’re in luck! His lecture at the Fayetteville Public Library (not far from the Arkansas hills where the book takes place) has been recorded, and you can watch the hour-long video here! Nate dives into the stew of ideas and influences that grew into Come Again: Snickers bars, Ursula Le Guin, Atari games, the Sex Pistols, and beyond.
Meanwhile the acclaim keeps rolling in! As NPR’s Etelka Lehoczky puts it: “spooky and off-kilter, Come Again shows Nate Powell’s virtuosity… it’s a delight to accompany such a fertile imagination.” And Barnes & Noble has declared it a Best Graphic Novel of the Month!
The tour continues! Catch Nate tonight at Quimby’s Books in Chicago — then in San Francisco, Indiana, Brooklyn, and beyond! To find out where to get a signed copy and meet Nate in person, check his web site!

Enter the Walled City with HIS DREAM OF THE SKYLAND by Anne Opotowsky and Aya Morton!
“A stunning piece of work… it has depth, lots of drama, bucket-loads of charm, and comedy and tragedy in equal measure. His Dream of the Skyland is a beautiful book that looks set to become a classic.” — Grovel
“Astounding… with well-drawn characters, naturalistic storytelling and cultural explorations, it’s a stunner.” — Miami Herald
Emmy Award winner Anne Opotowsky teams up with visionary artist Aya Morton for a stunning exploration of youth, ambition, loyalty, and the walls we build both inside and out, animating historical Hong Kong with powerful modern resonance.
This jaw-dropping, 312-page, 8″ x 10”, full-color opus is now in all the best comic shops, and reaches bookstores in just a few weeks. Read a 12-page excerpt and fall under its spell!
Kevin Eastman & Simon Bisley’s BODYCOUNT stacks up!
“Kevin Eastman and Simon Bisley’s bullet-ridden masterpiece is definitely a rare treat.” — Villain Media
After years out of print, a grindhouse-style classic returns — better than ever. Inspired by the magazine Heavy Metal and the films of John Woo, legendary cartoonists Kevin Eastman and Simon Bisley present a much darker take on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, spinning a pulse-pounding yarn of over-the-top action and more than a bit of the old ultraviolence.
It’s in hardcover for the first time ever, and it’s waiting at your favorite comic shop today! Again, bookstores will get it later this month.
