Former curate Billie has moved on to a new path . . . as a priestess in the Church of Satan. Meanwhile, her friend Maggie has made a similar switch–from Satanist to church-bound do-gooder.

Arkham Asylum has been destroyed—unleashing Ten-Eyed Man, Professor Pyg, Mad Hatter, and more onto the streets of Gotham. Can the Asylum’s last remaining doctor retrieve her patients?
The Joker’s attack on Arkham Asylum left the long-standing Gotham establishment in ruin, most of the patients killed or missing, and only a handful of surviving staff—a few nurses, a gravely injured security guard, and one doctor.
In the chaos of the assault, it is believed that several of the asylum’s patients escaped and scurried off into the dark nooks and crannies of Gotham City.
Now, these Arkhamites walk among us, and it’s up to the Asylum’s one remaining doctor, Jocasta Joy, to round up her former patients.
Meet these Arkhamites: a woman with no face, a pyggy in search of perfection, a man who feels nothing and burns everything, a woman who must devour life to save herself, a man unfit for the waking world who looks instead for Wonderland, a body with more than one soul, a being unbound from time who lives in the present and the past, a boy who seeks the comfort of vermin, and the twisted man who sees them all for who they are.
And witness the avenging angel who stalks them.

Even harder when you find out that you’re the reincarnation of an ancient sea serpent that’s destined to destroy the world, in a graphic novel trilogy from acclaimed creators Mairghread Scott and Pablo Tunica.
THE END OF THE WORLD IS COMING.
For Aella, life on Kinamen Isle is one of boredom. Spending her days fishing and minding her aunts, she dreams of life beyond the horizon.
Everything changes, however, when she awakens an ancient evil within herself as it’s revealed that she’s the reincarnation of Xir, the serpent that almost destroyed the world. Worse yet, a fanatical religious organization has arrived on Kinamen Isle in search of Xir.
As Aella is forced to fight for her life, she’ll discover that her entire world is not what it seems.
Her aunts know more than they let on and what exactly does the infamous Pirate Queen want with Aella?
From the team of Mairghread Scott (Star Wars: Resistance, Guardians of the Galaxy) and Pablo Tunica (TMNT Universe) comes an extraordinary tale of growing up and changing your fate.

For every hero who saves the galaxy and makes the front page, there are a dozen staffers working behind the scenes…and a hundred up-and-comers hoping to take his place. F.A.R.M. System is your ticket to the hidden world of superpowered individuals hoping to make the Big Leagues.”
In the Farm System, having an incredible and unique power is only the first step.
Guided by an army of agents, managers, and experts, recruits must undergo rigorous psychological evaluations, harassment and sensitivity seminars, marketing and endorsement workshops, and costume design meetings, all to boost their chances of recruitment into an A-list superhero team.
Some recruits make “the Bigs.”
Some have fleeting moments of glory, then lose it all.
Some take “Blue Cowl” gigs as superpowered bodyguards for famous actors or powerful CEOs.
Some flounder in the System for years, never getting “the call.”
And some find success by joining teams of a…less reputable ilk.
Following the profound pop-culture satire of Three Fingers, The King, and BB Wolf and the Three LPs, award-winning graphic novelist Rich Koslowski examines the hopes, disappointments, perseverance, and triumphs of the super-gifted…and the sometimes drastic lengths they will go to to achieve fortune and fame.

In this stand-alone collection of Scrooge McDuck’s amazing comics adventures, which celebrates the 75th anniversary of the iconic character created by Carl Barks, Scrooge and Donald return to the site of their first meeting!
In 1947, Carl Barks’s comics story “Christmas on Bear Mountain” didn’t just introduce the Scrooge McDuck character ― it took Donald, Huey, Dewey, and Louie to Scrooge’s Bear Mountain cabin, where beastly bruins made for holiday havoc!
In keeping with that memorable debut, Bear Mountain has been the site of countless Duckburg sagas ever since.
This special single volume edition collects Daniel Branca’s “Return to Bear Mountain,” in which Scrooge engages in a gambit with nasty gnomes; Don Rosa’s “The Richest Duck in the World,” which features Donald’s first visit to the fabled Money Bin; and there’s a crash course with Launchpad McQuack in “New Year’s Daze.”

Today, Winsor McCay (1867-1934) is universally acknowledged as the first master of both the comic strip and the animated cartoon.
Although invented by others, both genres were developed into enduring popular art of the highest imagination through McCay’s innovative genius.
From the publishers of the widely-acclaimed deluxe reprint series Little Nemo In Slumberland: So Many Splendid Sundays!, this book features all of the Little Sammy Sneeze color pages (1904-05) plus Hungry Henrietta, McCay’s other comic, which appeared on the back of Sammy in the Sunday New York Herald.
The unique style of this book presents two other flipside comics of 1904: The Woozlebeasts and The Upside Downs, along with the complete 27-chapter saga of Hungry Henrietta.
All comics are digitally restored in the original size and colors.
This new deluxe hardcover collects full-sized Sunday newspaper comics from 1919 through 1921 in a handsome archival collection.
As the surreal comic strip continues into the 1920s, the likes of Joe Stork, Blind Pig, and Bum Bill Bee settle into the mesas of Coconino County.
Brand-new readers and Herriman aficionados alike will find out what happens when Ignatz the Mouse’s brick supplier runs out of stock, how Krazy Kat fares after taking up boxing, and what happens when a new “Katnippery” opens providing libations to the locals.
Krazy & Ignatz 1919-1921 (Vol. 2) includes photographs, artwork, and introductory text by comic historians Bill Blackbeard and Michael Tisserand.
Finally, a large art book that collects the incredible paintings that Bernie Wrightson spent two years creating!
It’s been almost 30 years since Bernie Wrightson let his imagination run wild on his two trading card series.
For this once-in-a-lifetime creative endeavor, Bernie was given free rein to explore whatever ideas he wanted.
Over a two-year period, he created 150 fantastic NEW paintings. Vivid images of swamp creatures, vampires, werewolves, and beasties of all types congregate throughout these works.
It’s a spellbinding collection of all the things for which Bernie is best known.
These paintings have never been assembled in book form. They have never been seen at close to the actual size at which they were produced.
All of the paintings have been lovingly photographed on museum-quality transparencies that were made when Bernie first completed the artwork in 1993 and 1994, so they will appear as fresh as they were the day that he sent them into the FPG offices.
This is a comprehensive hardcover collection that measures 9” x 12” and is a real trip through Bernie’s hair-raising body of work for FPG.
Included is the original, insightful text that he wrote for each painting, as well as original documentation of the making of the two trading card series.
This is a book that is truly 30 years in the making, and we hope that you will join us for our celebration of Bernie Wrightson’s world!

In over 500 pages this book collects the finest tales of terror from the past sixty years of comic book publishing.
It encompasses all eras of the genre, from the “weird menace” horror of the perennially popular 1950s pre-Code comics published by EC, to the dark modern gems of the 90s and 2000s.
Discover the tales that drove the American youth of the 1950s into a frenzy and resulted in legislation to put an end to their gruesome content – the pre-Code comic book macabre that was Dark Mysteries, Chamber of Chills, Weird Terror and Journey into Fear.
Contributors from these early years include Bernie Wrightson, master adapter of Lovecraft, Mary Shelley and Stephen King; Mike Kaluta, the man behind The Shadow, Metropolis, and The Spawn of Frankenstein; and Rudy Palais, the EC artist responsible for such twisted works as Marching Zombies.
Modern contributions include Pete Von Scholly’s The Graveswellers (the man behind The Shawshank Redemption, The Mask, and The Green Mile), David Hitchcock’s self-published Immortal – a Vampire Tale’ (creator of the Jack the Ripper comic Whitechapel Freak), Thomas Ott’s G.O.D. from Greetings from Hellville (acclaimed Swiss noir artist), Legendary Canadian counter-culture cartoonist Rand Holmes’ Death Rattle, and Vincent Locke’s One of These Days (famed for his underground hit zombie comic Deadworld), and comic-book legend Steve Ditko’s Disaster Doom Death (co-creator of Spiderman).
Bringing together the finest names in comic book terror, here is a feast of terror only a ghoul could have dreamed up…
