Troy Little (adaptation & c)
Troy Little's gonzo adaptation of Hunter Thompson's Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas is now available in an all-new format. Find out why GQ said "Little's cartoonish sensibilities make him the ideal artist to adapt Thompson's gonzo ur-text... perfectly portraying literature's most ridiculous road trip."
This comic book version is presented in black-and-white and at a slightly larger size than the full-color hardcover edition. Each issue also includes pages from Little's sketchbook and other behind-the-scenes information.

•"[Little's] talents make him perfectly comfortable with the elastic expressions required to recreate the exploits of Thompson and his companion, Dr. Gonzo, as they slingshot between mania, paranoia, rage, and despair... the graphic-novel aspect adds layers to Thompson's prose." — Quill & Quire (starred review)
•"Sheer expressiveness... captur[es] the sense of immediacy and paranoia that saturated the original's long, bad trip... it's a vivid insight into one of the most fascinatingly creative and unwaveringly troubled writers of his generation." — Publishers Weekly
•"Raoul Duke and his Samoan attorney, Dr. Gonzo, come screaming into Las Vegas, searching for the American dream, destined to find only its charred remains... [Troy] Little fits the sensibility of the original comfortably into comics form." — Booklist

Masahiko Matsumoto (w & a & c)
Welcome to the quiet, evocative urban dramas of Masahiko Matsumoto, one of the leading lights of the Japanese alternative-comics movement known as "gekiga." Originally published in 1974, these eleven stories now form the first English-language collection of Matsumoto's mature work. His shy, uncertain heroes face broken hearts, changing families, money troubles, sexual anxiety, and the pressures of tradition, but
with a whimsy and lightness of touch that is Matsumoto's trademark.

Jekyll Island CoverThe Jekyll Island Chronicles (Book One): A Machine Age War—CERTIFIED COOL
Steve Nedvidek, Ed Crowell, and Jack Lowe (w) • Moses Nester (a) • S.J. Miller (c)
At the beginning of the 1900's, 1/6th of the world's wealth vacationed in and around the tiny Georgia island of Jekyll.  Captains of Industry like Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan and Carnegie all called the Jekyll area home.  Using this place of grandeur and elegance as a backdrop, an alternate history is explored between the World Wars. A time of great social, political and technological upheaval. A time of ingenuity and anarchy. A time for some of the most brilliant, and horrible, minds of the 20th century to confront each other. And a time of great new heroes and fantastic new machines.
The Jekyll Island Chronicles: A Machine Age War is the first in a series of graphic novels. Part historical fact, part clockwork, and part diesel punk, they span an age of furious advancement in machine technology while exploring the span of man's soul -- whether evil or good.

Dieter LumpenThe Adventures of Dieter Lumpen—CERTIFIED COOL
Jorge Zentner (w) • Ruben Pellejero (a & c)
The first English translation of the entire Adventures of Dieter Lumpen series, the most famous work of the Angoulême award-winning team of Jorge Zentner and Rubén Pellejero!
Dieter Lumpen is a man of the world, an adventurer who wants no part of adventure. Nonetheless, he is swept along to exotic locations from Turkey to the Caribbean, from China to Venice. He is not quite so hard-boiled as the typical adventure hero. As written by Zentner, Dieter's irony is gentler, more subtle, more reflective, and more tongue-in-cheek than hard or bitter. Pellejero is quite simply one of Europe's top comics artists, who was chosen for the plum job to illustrate the new adventures of Hugo Pratt's Corto Maltese. Dieter Lumpen began in 1981 and continued until 1994.
This definitive omnibus collects all eight short stories and the three graphic novels with a foreword by Tim Sale.
