2016 Holiday Gift Guide Part One – Julie & Lee’s Picks


SCULLY
SHQ Publishing
$6
Everybody’s favorite skeptic stars in her own zine! All Dana all the time. -Julie


PAPER GIRLS VOL 1 & 2
Image Comics
$10, $12.99
Stranger Things meets Goonies meets something entirely unique and insane!
Utterly surprising and extremely fun sci-fi from the creator of Saga and Y The Last Man. -Julie


HAPPINESS VOL 1 & 2
Vertical
$13 each
Very stylish Vampire manga! Like a fun Japanese Let the Right One In, from the guy
who brought you the ultra creepy Flowers of Evil. –Lee


CAT RACKHAM
Koyama Press
$20
The saddest, funniest comic that everyone should know about is finally back in print.
I love, love, love this book. -Julie


COSPLAYERS
Fantagraphics Books
$23
This handful of unique short stories revolving around two young women going to different themed
conventions is charming, clever, and hilarious – no knowledge of the subculture required!
Has sort of a Ghost World vibe to it. Just good jokes and cool ideas. –Lee


FADE OUT COMPLETE COLLECTION
Image Comics
$50
The Fade Out is the ideal Hollywood period-piece noir murder mystery. This edition binds the entire series together in one beautiful hardcover and was edited very thoroughly and thoughtfully – the colors, the paper… it’s perfect.
Ed, Sean, and Elizabeth are one of the best teams working in comics, and they just really nailed it. –Lee

Stay tuned for part two…
