THE PRINCESS AND THE PONY BY KATE BEATON

Behold, the joy of leasons learned through the pens of greats like Tom Gauld, Jaime Hernandez, Mark Newgarden, James Kochalka, Eleanor Davis, and Sophie Goldstein (to name a few.) For the grown up that has had read those other kids books a few too many times to their children.” – David

DRESSING BY MICHAEL DEFORGE
KOYAMA PRESS

“Other worldly collection of short stories by Michael Deforge. For the person that thinks they have seen it all and have it all. False. Fool. Truly jaw-droppingly nutty images, stories and ideas. It’s the gift that causes eyeballs to melt. Recommended.” – David


THE DIVINE BY LAVIE, HANUKA, & HANUKA
FIRST SECOND
$20
“Holy moly, these kids are terrifying. This is a story that hooks you immediately and drops you into a war torn country run by 10 year olds who smoke cigarettes and may be able to do actual magic. I have no idea what to compare this to…just read it!” – Quinn


THE PRIVATE EYE BY BRIAN K. VAUGHAN & MARCOS MARTIN
IMAGE COMICS
$50
“Marcos Martin’s art looks even better when you don’t have to stare at a computer screen. Once only available digitally, this hardcover edition also includes the original pitch document and emails between Vaughan and Martin about what they are striving to make. Get some awesome insight into how something this epic goes from just an idea to a book you can hold in your hands. Beautiful and badass sci-fi noir.” – Quinn
