Peter Milligan (w) • Tess Fowler (a & c)
Meet Kid, the youngest descendant of a rich, demented hotelier named Big Daddy. Kid is the newly appointed manager of “The Suites,” but his good looks and swagger can’t hide a rough childhood of strange therapies and brain operations that have awakened inner demons and psychodramas. This of course makes him eminently qualified to perform lobotomies. A failed rockstar/successful madman gets one last chance to prove his worth—and regain his sanity—by turning the hotel that was once his childhood sanctuary into a lucrative business despite a host of obstacles including seductive shapeshifters, dead literary heroes and Kid’s own sister, who would love nothing more than to see him fail miserably.

John Byrne’s X-Men Artifact Edition—SPOTLIGHT
Chris Claremont (w) • John Byrne (a & c) • Terry Austin, Various (inks)
John Byrne’s run on the X-Men began with issue #108 and lasted until #143. The team of Claremont, Byrne, and Austin made the X-Men (which was already a hit series under Dave Cockrum) soar to the top of the charts in comics sales. They introduced Alpha Flight, and then created the near mythical storylines “The Dark Phoenix Saga” and “Days of Future Past.” These and the rest of their stories remain burned into the memories of collective fandom to this day, and have been the basis for several X-Men films.

This Artifact Edition will include more than 100 pages of X-Men covers, splashes, and pages from Byrne’s X-Men run. All have been meticulously scanned from the original art and reproduced to the exacting Artist’s Edition standards that have won IDW Publishing five highly coveted Eisner Awards (to date)!

It’s impossible to escape the past, however, and trouble comes in the form of mysterious murders, ex-teammates with grudges, robots with a strange sense of humor, an inconvenient crush, a cantankerous professor, and many different kinds of people who think they know the best way to be a hero.

Mulligan and Ostertag’s creation strikes just the right balance. It’s super.” –Cory Doctorow, Boing Boing

Lost Girls (Expanded Edition)—CERTIFIED COOL
Alan Moore (w) • Melinda Gebbie (a)
The groundbreaking and controversial masterpiece of erotic comics, decades in the making, is now available in a sumptuous hardcover collecting all three volumes plus 32 pages of new artwork and commentary…
For more than a century, Alice, Wendy, and Dorothy have been our guides through the Wonderland, Neverland, and Land of Oz of our childhoods. Now, like us, these three lost girls have grown up and are ready to guide us again, this time through the realms of our sexual awakening and fulfillment. Through their familiar fairy tales, they share with us their most intimate revelations of desire in its many forms—revelations that shine out radiantly through the dark clouds of war gathering around a luxury Austrian hotel. Drawing on the rich heritage of erotica, Lost Girls is the rediscovery of the power of ecstatic writing and art in a sublime union that only the medium of comics can achieve. Exquisite, thoughtful, and human, Lost Girls is a work of breathtaking scope that challenges the very notion of art fettered by convention. This is erotic fiction at its finest.

Jorge Zentner (w) • Ruben Pellejero (a & c)
For the family of the little red-headed Malka, trading the Russian shtetl for the Argentine pampas isn’t so easy. Even in a country eager to populate its vast territories, the immigrants discover that their new home isn’t the promised land. They encounter hostility from both man and nature as they struggle through droughts and locusts in an attempt to cultivate the arid soil. When misery pushes them to the extreme, Malka’s uncle is visited by the prophet Elias, who advises that he create a Golem—the mythical creature fashioned from earth and endowed with life by engraving on his body the word “emet” (“truth”)—to pose as a man and aid the immigrants.

Years later, when the adult Malka is visited by Elias, the events of her youth force her to decide whether or not she can maintain her silence—with fate and divine justice hanging in the balance.
