From deep within the mysterious land of Canada comes a resounding, ear bursting riff of awesomeness that can only mean the return of one thing....THE METAL!!

ABOMINABLE CHARLES CHRISTOPHER TP VOL 01(W/A) Karl Kerschl
Karl Kerschl, artist of The Flash, Teen Titans: Year One, and Assassin's Creed, introduced his webcomic 'The Abominable Charles Christopher' in 2007, following the adventures of a dim-witted sasquatch through a world of colourful animal characters. In the few years since its release it has won several awards, including the Eisner Award in 2011 for Best Webcomic. Rather than follow a traditional publishing model, Karl decided to self-publish a hardcover edition of the first chapter, which sold out almost immediately.
Now that same book has been reprinted in a beautiful softcover edition which we are excited to offer. Featuring a new painted and spot-glossed cover, this family-friendy book will be right at home in the company of comics such as Bone and Mouse Guard.
Inside the front cover is a “This book belongs to” page, so you can
personalize it for yourself or as a gift to loved ones.
BLACK CHURCH(W/A) Andy Belanger
Andy B's 40 pages of pure black and white mini-comic destruction, in a blood red, hand stamped 7" record jacket with a color cover. 7"x7".
1430. In the bitter dark of the Transylvanian winter, Vlad Dracul and his brother narrowly escape their Turkish captors, fleeing into the woods and almost certain danger. There he is entranced by a mysterious witch- but when a prophecy arises that claims their child will be the Antichrist, Vlad is forced to make a difficult decision for the future of his country, the Order of the Dragon, and his son: DRACULA!
BLACK CHURCH is one part The Omen, one part Game of Thrones, and all parts METAL!

WOLVES(W/A) Becky Cloonan
The critically acclaimed short story that sold out of it's initial print-run of 1,000 in just two months is back in stock! It also ships with a free WOLVES bookmark, while supplies last.
As a lone hunter tracks an elusive beast through the forest, he reflects on his life and past love through a series of flashbacks, bringing the story to a climax that is as romantic as it is violent. This powerful mini-comic lends itself to multiple read-throughs, never giving concrete answers but (like the best enigmatic endings) leaves your own conclusions satisfying
THE MIRE(W/A) Becky Cloonan
The much anticipated follow-up to 2011's WOLVES, THE MIRE is a self-contained story set on the eve of battle, when a humble squire is given the task of delivering a letter to a decomposing castle in a swamp. Met with mysterious apparitions, he slowly unveils the truth about why he was sent there, as his past is re-written over the course of twenty two pages.
