Ed Brubaker & Sean Phillips: Kill or Be Killed 1

The darkly twisted story of a young man forced to kill bad people, and how he struggles to keep his secret as it slowly begins to ruin his life and the lives of his friends and loved ones.

Both a thriller and a deconstruction of vigilantism, KILL OR BE KILLED is unlike anything this award-winning team has done before.

Brian K. Vaughan & Fiona Staples: Saga

Saga on tarina Alanasta ja Markosta, kahdesta aivan erilaisen rodun edustajasta, jotka rakastuvat sodan keskellä, saavat lapsen, ja joutuvan sen jälkeen pakenemaan henkensä kaupalla molempien kansojen vihaa.
Peräänsä he saavat niin kylmäverisiä palkkatappajia kuin TV-päisiä robottikuninkaallisia.

Saga kertoo eeppisen tieteisseikkailun kautta tarinan rakkaudesta, perheen perustamisesta, politiikasta sekä tietenkin kissoista, joille on turha yrittää valehdella.

The Complete Wimmen’s Comix

In the late 60s, underground comix changed the way comics readers saw the medium but there was an important pronoun missing from the revolution.

In 1972, ten women cartoonists got together in San Francisco to rectify the situation and produce the first and longest-lasting all-woman comics anthology, Wimmen’s Comix.
Within two years the Wimmen’s Comix Collective had introduced cartoonists like Roberta Gregory and Melinda Gebbie to the comics-reading public, and would go on to publish some of the most talented women cartoonists in America: Carol Tyler, Mary Fleener, Dori Seda, Phoebe Gloeckner, and many others. In its twenty year run, the women of Wimmen’s tackled subjects the guys wouldn’t touch with a ten-foot pole: abortion, menstruation, masturbation, castration, lesbians, witches, murderesses, and feminists.
Most issues of Wimmen’s Comix have been long out of print, so it s about time these pioneering cartoonists work received their due.
Presented as a gorgeous two-volume slipcased set, The Complete Wimmen’s Comix includes the ground-breaking 1970 one-shot, It Ain’t Me, Babe, the very first all-woman comic book ever published.
Edited with an introduction by Trina Robbins.
