Justice League of America: The Silver Age Vol. 1
As much as any writer, Gardner Fox helped create the tone and feel of the Batman stories of the 1960s. Fox was an attorney who began his prolific and innovative second career as a writer in the late 1930s on Batman and went on to create such Golden Age classics as the original Flash, Hawkman, Starman, Doctor Fate, and the Justice Society of America. His influence extended throughout the 1950s and 1960s when, until his retirement from DC Comics in 1968, he created and/or wrote such memorable features as the Justice League of America, Adam Strange, the Atom, Hawkman, and, of course, Batman, all under the auspices of legendary comics editor Julius Schwartz. Until his death in 1986, Gardner Fox continued writing comics and novels. He published over 100 books in numerous genres, some under the pseudonyms of Jefferson Cooper and Bart Sommers, as well as many fantasy novels under his own name.


Corto Maltese: Celtic Tales
Nominated for both the Eisner and Harvey Awards for Best Foreign Language Publication! In this third volume in the definitive English language edition of Hugo Pratt's masterpiece, the action moves from South America to Europe against the backdrop of the First World War. In these six stories Pratt further explores such complicated themes as patriotism and greed, revolution and opportunism, and betrayal and seduction. Events take Corto from a small island in the Venetian lagoon, where he comes face to face with a beautiful blonde spy, to Stonehenge and an adventure with Merlin, Morgana, and Puck. Along the way he meets Ernest Hemingway and future billionaire Aristotle Onassis, Irish revolutionary Banshee O'Danann, the legendary Red Baron, and an intense cast of characters who weave in and out of a series of labyrinthine plots and counter-plots.


The Complete Crepax: Dracula, Frankenstein, And Other Horror Stories
Guido Crepax is one of the most acclaimed and instantly recognizable cartoonists in the world. Only a handful of his works have been reprinted in English and none are currently available. Crepax: Dracula, Frankenstein, and Other Horror Stories is the artist's unique take on the works of Bram Stoker and Mary Shelley, along with a half dozen stories featuring his most famous character, Valentina, several never before published. Presented in a deluxe coffee table format, this first of ten volumes in the complete works of Crepax will be a revelation to American readers.
