A Raw artist returns, and Atlantis exists, in this new and original graphic novel from one of the great Italian comics masters, published in English for the first time. In this graphic novel, Aqualantics maintain a fragile peace with their "surface brothers"-as long as their world remains a myth. But when an actor who plays the character of the "indefensible Earthman," all cynicism and vulgarity, is gradually possessed by his role, a chain reaction jeopardizes the entire kingdom and the uneasy peace between the two species. Giorgio Carpinteri's sheer graphic brilliance - fusing aspects of Futurism, Cubism, Russian Constructivism, and German Expressionism with echoes of Bauhaus and distinct whims of Art Deco - would be enough to carry this brilliant fantasy, but Aqualantic is also a lyrical, allegorical masterpiece exploring the relationship between the conscious and unconscious, the known and the unknown.
COMPLETE NOIR MANCHETTE TARDI HC #2
A globally acclaimed crime novelist and a pioneering cartoonist team up to bring readers two graphic novel noir thrillers, collected in an oversized format. The second of two volumes presenting all four hardboiled graphic crime novels by Jean-Patrick Manchette and Tardi.

But soon, he's on the run - not only from the authorities and his treacherous ex-clients, but also from a crime syndicate seeking revenge for an earlier hit on one of theirs. In Run Like Crazy, Run Like Hell, philanthropist Michael Hartog hires Julie, just out of a psychiatric asylum, as a nanny. But he plans to fake the kidnapping of his son, Peter - and frame Julie for it. But Julie is no pushover, and soon, Julie and Peter are on the run, pursued by the police, and by Hartog's enforcer, the hulking contract killer, Thompson.

NEW COMICS ANTHOLOGY
This Eisner Award-winning anthology series is a self-contained cross-section of the best short comics stories the globe has to offer, at a price point that is unrivaled in contemporary comics publishing. This ninth issue of Now is anchored by the longest story featured in the magazine to date: "Misguided Love," a 40-page autobiographical tour de force by Texas artist Raquelle Jac. Ping-ponging among relationships, hospitalizations, internet "fame," international travel, sex, romance, and trauma, Jac's dense, obsessive pages read like a manifesto, announcing the arrival of a remarkable new voice in comics. This issue also features Now debuts from Hartley Lin (Young Frances), Ethel Wolfe, and Emil Friis Ernst (Doctor Murder), as well as work from Now regulars Keren Katz (The Academic Hour) and Noah Van Sciver, who homages Basil Wolverton's cult favorite, science-fiction hero, Spacehawk.
TENACIOUS D POST APOCALYPTO HC JACK BLACK KYLE GASS
There was the film; there was the album; there was the tour; and now, the final piece of Tenacious D's masterful Post-Apocalypto universe: the graphic novel, complete with accompanied audio. In the fall of 2018, the Greatest Band in the World - Tenacious D (comprised of Jack Black and Kyle Gass) - added arguably its most crucial work to an already scintillating catalogue of rock greatness: Tenacious D in Post-Apocalypto the movie (available on YouTube) and Post-Apocalypto the album. And now - with great excitement - Tenacious D will add the final piece to the Post-Apocalypto universe: the graphic novel, which Jack Black drew and Kyle Gass wrote, complete with accompanied audio. Post-Apocalypto finds Tenacious D thrust into a world of complete and utter destruction following the drop of an atomic bomb. Surviving the attack in classic cinematic fashion (a good old imperishable 1950s refrigerator), the duo quickly learn that new forms of evil have spawned from the blast. One thing becomes apparent - for humanity to prevail, Tenacious D must save the world. With unimaginable twists and turns, an insane visit to the White House, a time machine, a space adventure, and the help of some tried-and-true daddy issues, Post-Apocalypto is as hilarious as it is political, and as brilliant and multi-faceted as its incredible creators.
