Yves Sente & Steve Cuzor: Black Cotton Star
A Revolutionary War-era secret sends three soldiers on an epic quest across 1940s Europe to recover a piece of American history.
Philadelphia, 1776: George Washington asks Betsy Ross to design the first flag of the future United States of America.
Her housemaid, Angela Brown, adds to it a secret tribute to the black community: a black cotton star that she slips under one of the white ones.
Dover, 1944: A soldier named Lincoln receives a letter from his sister back home that reveals Angela Brown’s memoirs, and wonders if the star that she mentions truly exists. His superiors seem to think so.

Black Cotton Star is a magnificent war drama, unfolding a fictional tale of struggle, resilience, and sacrifice with themes that resonate deeply in a divided modern-day America.

Best of witzend
In the mid-’60s, fed up with the formulaic restrictions, censorious nature, and onerous denial of creator’s rights in mainstream comics, cartoonist Wallace Wood boldy decided to launch his own magazine — witzend.
Witzend soon became an essential outlet of unfettered artistic freedom for Wood and his fellow cartoonists, including such comics luminaries as Frank Frazetta, Al Williamson, Gray Morrow, Reed Crandall, Steve Ditko, Art Spiegelman, Vaughn Bodé, Alex Toth, Howard Chaykin, and Bernie Wrightson.
Now Fantagraphics presents Best of witzend, a selection of the greatest comics and illustration from the 13-issue run of witzend collected into a single handsome volume, curated by Wood’s longtime assistant and successor as witzend editor and publisher, Bill Pearson.
Garth Stein & Matthew Southworth: The Cloven Book One
Sometimes, the only way we can face reality is by pretending it isn’t real.
The Cloven Book One stars James Tucker, the most successful genetically modified human organism ever created.
Conceived in a privately financed, top-secret laboratory on Washington state’s Vashon Island, Tucker is a cross between a human and a goat — a Cloven.
Known to his friends as “Tuck,” all he wants is to live a normal life as a university student; everything is going fine, until he shows a girl his hooves…
Moody and mysterious and atmospheric as a fever dream, The Cloven Book One follows Tuck’s breakneck journey across the Pacific Northwest as he searches for a place to belong. Book One of a dynamic, atmospheric, and wryly funny graphic novel trilogy by two bestselling and critically acclaimed storytellers.
The Cloven Book One features a special full-color four page fold-out spread.
Daniel Clowes: Ice Haven
At long last, the paperback version of Daniel Clowes’s brilliant graphic novel, hailed by Time as “another of his hilariously slightly off-center worlds that have a vague sense of dread about them. Kind of like where you live.”
Welcome to Ice Haven!
“It’s not as cold here as it sounds,” declares Random Wilder, our reluctant guide to this sleepy Midwestern town.
He’s also its would-be poet laureate. Would-be, that is, were it not for the “florid banalities” of his archrival, Ida Wentz, published ad nauseam in the Ice Haven Daily Progress.
Among Wilder’s other fellow Ice Havians are the love-lorn Violet Vanderplazt and Vida Wentz; the adorable interracial moppets Carmichael and Paula; the Blue Bunny, newly sprung from prison and the bitterest rabbit in town; and poor little David Goldberg, missing for more than a week now. . . .
The lives of the men and women of Ice Haven are woven into a multilayered tale that, while it owes a debt to Our Town, is ultimately based on and inspired by . . . Leopold and Loeb. No kidding.
Only Daniel Clowes could do it and, luckily for us, he has.
R. Sikoryak: Constitution Illustrated
The master of the visual mash-up returns with his signature idiosyncratic take on the Constitution.
R. Sikoryak is the master of the pop culture pastiche.
In Masterpiece Comics, he interpreted classic literature with defining twentieth-century comics.
With Terms and Conditions, he made the unreadable contract that everyone signs, and no one reads, readable.
He employs his magic yet again to investigate the very framework of the country with Constitution Illustrated.
By visually interpreting the complete text of the supreme law of the land with more than a century of American pop culture icons, Sikoryak distills the very essence of the government legalese from the abstract to the tangible, the historical to the contemporary.
Among Sikoryak’s spot-on unions of government articles and amendments with famous comic-book characters: the Eighteenth Amendment that instituted prohibition is articulated with Homer Simpson running from Chief Wiggum; the Fourteenth Amendment that solidifies citizenship to all people born and naturalized in the United States is personified by Ms. Marvel; and, of course, the Nineteenth Amendment offering women the right to vote is a glorious depiction of Wonder Woman breaking free from her chains.
American artists from George Herriman ( Krazy Kat) and Charles Schulz ( Peanuts) to Raina Telgemeier ( Sisters) and Alison Bechdel ( Dykes to Watch Out For) are homaged, with their characters reimagined in historical costumes and situations.
We the People has never been more apt.
Gipi: One Story
Dual narratives by the acclaimed Italian cartoonist poetically describe how choices our ancestors made dramatically affect generations to come.
One Story is actually made up of two intricately entangled tales.
Silvano Landi is a successful writer, who, at the age of 50, sees his family leaving him and his life harshly falling apart.
Landi’s great-grandfather, Mauro, is an anxious soldier being fed to the maw of carnage in the First World War.
Alternating between past and present, a psyche ward and the bloody trenches, and told through revealing repetition and complex clues — a lone gas station, an apathetic baroness, found love letters — One Story documents the origins of pain that serve as the roots of a twisted family tree and allows the reader to trace the branches.
In One Story, the worldwide-award-winning cartoonist Gipi has created his most ambitious and lyrical work yet. Shifting from scratchy black-and-white to lush watercolors (sometimes on the same page), the Italian master intertwines styles and narratives to document the pain, passion, and cruelty passed down from one generation to the next and details the fragile tightrope mankind must traverse, yesterday just as today, to retain hope.
