Ankkamestari Kari Korhonen paljastaa nuoren Roopen polun Klondikesta Ankkalinnaan!
Miten nuoresta kullankaivajasta tuli uljaan ankkakaupungin ykkösmies? Helppoa se ei ollut, sillä matkan varrella Roope joutui mittelöön niin Karhukoplan, Pennosen suvun kuin monien muidenkin kierojen kelmien kanssa.
Näissä tarinoissa valotetaan myös itse Ankkalinnan historiaa sekä monien tuttujen hahmojen, kuten neiti Näpsän ja Pelle Pelottoman, taustoja. Luvassa on historiallisen vauhdikasta ja mukaansatempaavaa sarjakuvaseikkailua.

Barks lähettää sankarinsa välillä joulunviettoon jopa meren pohjaan, mutta jotenkin Pukki aina tavoittaa ankanpojat – eikä Akun ja Roopen alituinen nahistelukaan pysty vesittämään juhlatunnelmaa.

Kousuke Oono: The Way of the Househusband 6
All of Tatsu’s hustling and networking since leaving the yakuza has earned him an offer he can’t refuse—an invitation to run with the women’s association, the movers and shakers of his neighborhood.

N. K. Jemisin & Jamal Campbell: Far Sector
The first murder in 500 years. Twenty billion suspects. One hope.
The City Enduring, a booming metropolis at the edge of the universe, hasn’t experienced a violent crime in generations. The Emotion Exploit has erased its citizens’ full range of feelings, allowing three resident races to overlook their turbulent history and coexist peacefully–until now.
Rookie Green Lantern Sojourner “Jo” Mullein is still adjusting to her assignment to protect this strange world when a brutal murder rattles its social order, threatening to undo centuries of controversial progress.
As the populace rises up against the legacy of the Emotion Exploit and leaders grapple for power under threat of a new war, Jo must rely on her unique instincts–as a Green Lantern and the only human in this sector–to solve the crime and guide the City Enduring toward a more promising future.
Hugo Award-winning author N.K. Jemisin joins bestselling Naomi artist Jamal Campbell in the Eisner Award-nominated sci-fi murder mystery Far Sector, collecting all 12 issues, concept art and character designs, and an introduction by Gerard Way.
An SF graphic novel, the second in an epic series, set in a near-future where the internet is telepathic and its hub is a human child.
Vol. 2 moves away from the deep space transport where Vol. 1 took place and moves to earthly terrain, peeling back layers of Cotter’s world-building to reveal the bigger picture of this graphic novel series in ways that upend expectations.
Aveline Moiré is a headstrong but self-destructive young French woman. When she meets and moves in with a young artist, Walter Walker, little do they know that the wheels they set in motion may bring about the end of humankind.
Working within the structure of SF, Nod Away moves back and forth between physical and psychological worlds.
It utilizes traditional and abstract storytelling styles to explore what consciousness could be, its location, what function or point it might serve, and how a lack of personal responsibility and accountability will always corrupt it.
At a projected seven volumes and over 2000 pages in all, Nod Away is poised to be one of the great comics classics of the 21st century.

This graphic novel is Jerry Moriarty’s tribute to fine artists who make their living in commercial art.
Rotart Sulli is a painter who illustrates crime fiction.
In the first of two stories that comprise Visual Crime, Sulli gets a call from the publisher who gives him an assignment for Visual Crime Magazine, which comes with a peculiar requirement: Sulli is to stay at Hotel Ace in room 611 until his assignment is finished. He completes the assignment in the basement of the hotel but not without coming to blows with a janitor with a penchant for chucking toys into the furnace.
In the book’s second story, Sulli is once again hired to illustrate a crime story; and once again, it comes with a peculiar demand: he’s told to place the finished work “in your back window ― it will be seen.” In between these two stories are a dozen short stories occupying a single page, all illustrated by paintings by Sulli.
Painted panel sequences alternate with Moriarty’s rough-hewn, proletarian pen and ink panels amidst the luminous, Hopperesque paintings by Rotart Sulli, creating a portrait of the artist working alone in a mysterious and uncertain world, creating stunning images that transcend the melodramatic stories they illustrate.

Sean Murphy: Batman – Curse of the White Knight
The sword of Azrael unleashed!
The urban jungle that is Gotham City is being torn apart by the war between Batman and the Joker—a war in which the difference between hero and villain has become impossibly blurred.
Now, with his do-gooding Jack Napier personality submerged beneath an ascendant Clown Prince of Crime, the Joker is ready to take that war to the next level—and his army has a new recruit.
Wielding a flaming sword and bearing the weight of hundreds of years of history on his shoulders, Azrael is a knight darker than any that Gotham has seen before. One by one, the Batman’s enemies will fall beneath his blade—and bit by bit, this new crusader will remake Gotham City into his own version of heaven on Earth.
Only Batman and his estranged allies can stop him—but the distrust between them runs deep. And when the Joker and Azrael expose the hidden history of the Wayne family, all faith in the Dark Knight may be shattered for good.
Acclaimed writer and artist Sean Murphy continues his thrilling and thought-provoking reimagining of the Batman mythos in Batman: Curse of the White Knight, a stunning sequel to his groundbreaking graphic novel Batman: White Knight.
This volume collects all eight issues of the DC Black Label series as well as the Batman: White Knight Presents Von Freeze one-shot written by Murphy and illustrated by legendary comics artist Klaus Janson.
Eleanor Crewes: The Times I Knew I Was Gay
A charming, highly relatable graphic memoir that follows one young woman’s adventures in coming out and coming of age.
Ellie always had questions about who she was and how she fit in.
As a girl, she wore black, obsessed over Willow in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and found dating boys much more confusing than many of her friends did.
As she grew older, so did her fears and a deep sense of unbelonging.
From her first communion to her first girlfriend via a swathe of self-denial, awkward encounters, and everyday courage, Ellie tells her story through gorgeous illustrations—a fresh and funny self-portrait of a young woman becoming herself.
The Times I Knew I Was Gay reminds us that people sometimes come out not just once but again and again; that identity is not necessarily about falling in love with others, but about coming to terms with oneself.
Full of vitality and humor, it will ring true for anyone who has taken the time to discover who they truly are.

In a post-Apocalyptic future, all traces of technology have seemingly disappeared from the surface of the Earth.

Flashback to the year 2052, An unexplained and unexpected natural phenomenon causes electricity itself to simply fail. And in its disappearance, civilization falls to its knees, almost instantaneously.
A cautionary, post-apocalyptic tale told from both sides of the downfall.
A teenage Quaker joins the Union Army and experiences firsthand the brutality of the Civil War in this singular graphic novel by a beloved comics artist and animator.
During the Civil War, many Quakers were caught between their fervent support of abolition, a desire to preserve the Union, and their long-standing commitment to pacifism.
When Charles Cox, a young Quaker from Indiana, slips out early one morning to enlist in the Union Army, he scandalizes his family and his community.
Leaving behind the strict ways of Quaker life, Cox is soon confronted with the savagery of battle, the cruelty of the enemy (as well as of his fellow soldiers), and the overwhelming strangeness of the world beyond his home.
He clings to his faith and family through letters with his sister, Fanny, who faces her own trials at home: betrayal, death, and a church that seems ready to fracture under the stress of the war.
Discipline is told largely through the letters exchanged between the Cox siblings—incorporating material from actual Quaker and soldier journals of the era—and drawn in a style that combines modern graphic storytelling with the Civil War–era battlefield illustrations of the likes of Thomas Nast and Winslow Homer.
The result is a powerful consideration of faith, justice, and violence, and an American comics masterpiece.

Alan is an older gay man on the prowl for a young, 30-ish hookup.

Turns out, Alan isn’t the picture-perfect sugar daddy, but a sociopath responsible for the disappearance of numerous young gay men.
“Scott” isn’t really looking for a boyfriend, but revenge for a fallen friend…unfortunately for Scott, he may have underestimated Alan and when he finds one of Alan’s victims still alive, his mission swerves from one of revenge to a rescue.
From Jeffrey Dahmer to Ed Buck…to the Toronto gay murders…authorities have a pattern of overlooking crimes against gay men until it’s far too late.
In PARTY & PREY, we match this unfortunate truth with the hard-to-believe, but real-life extremes that gay power brokers like Peter Thiel go to in attempts to preserve their youth…creating a gay revenge thriller with a true-crime twist that flips our sympathies just when we start to feel bad for Alan.
Think a gay Get Out crossed with Criminal, Stray Bullets, or Dead Inside.
