Heikki Rönkkö: The Funny Side of Life with M. Other

New jokes & no jokes.






Chang Sheng: Oldman 1

A beautiful queen rules her country with an iron fist.

Unmarried and without an heir, she adopts orphans as a way to prove that even commoners can reign as kings.
Yet, as the years progress, she shows no sign of aging. Only one man knows the dark secret to her eternal youth: Oldman, a bearded magician the queen has locked in her darkest dungeon.

One night, Oldman steps through the bars of his prison and disappears before the queen’s very eyes. Enraged, she sends her army after him in a desperate campaign to keep her secret hidden.

Having tricked the guards (and not actually having left the dungeon), he rescues a neighboring prisoner, a sword maiden rebel whose arms and legs were amputated, and left to rot in her cell. Upon taking her to an underground doctor who fits her with mechanical arms and legs, they together vow to take revenge on the Queen that wronged them.

The beautiful artwork and elegant story-making of Chang-Sheng’s Oldman propelled it into award-winning national fame; now, this iconic comic is ready for the global audience it deserves.

Alan Moore & Kevin O’Neill: The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen IV – The Tempest

Welcome to the story to end all stories. Two decades of literary League lunacy have all been building to this, the most ambitious meta-comic imaginable.

After an epic twenty-year journey through the entirety of human culture – the biggest cross-continuity ‘universe’ that is conceivable – Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill conclude both their legendary League of Extraordinary Gentlemen and their equally legendary comic-book careers with the series’ spectacular fourth and final volume, The Tempest.

Tying up the slenderest of plot threads and allusions from the three preceding volumes, The Black Dossier, and the Nemo trilogy into a dazzling and ingenious bow, the world’s most accomplished and bad-tempered artist-writer team use their most stylistically adventurous outing yet to display the glories of the medium they are leaving; to demonstrate the excitement that attracted them to the field in the first place; and to analyse, critically and entertainingly, the reasons for their departure.

Opening simultaneously in the panic-stricken headquarters of British Military Intelligence, the fabled Ayesha’s lost African city of Kor and the domed citadel of ‘We’ on the devastated Earth of the year 2,996, the dense and yet furiously-paced narrative hurtles like an express locomotive across the fictional globe from Lincoln Island to modern America to the Blazing World; from the Jacobean antiquity of Prospero’s Men to the superhero-inundated pastures of the present to the unimaginable reaches of a shimmering science-fiction future.
With a cast-list that includes many of the most iconic figures from literature and pop culture, and a tempo that conveys the terrible momentum of inevitable events, this is literally and literarily the story to end all stories.

Originally published as a six-issue run of unfashionable, outmoded and flimsy children’s comics that would make you appear emotionally backward if you read them on the bus, this climactic magnum opus also reprints classic English super-team publication The Seven Stars from the murky black-and-white reaches of 1964.
A magnificent celebration of everything comics were, are and could be, any appreciator or student of the medium would be unwise to miss The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Volume IV: THE TEMPEST.

Sam Maggs & Hunter Severn Bonyun: Critical Role – The Mighty Nein Origins: Jester Lavorre

Dive into the mystery of Jester’s early years, her first meeting with the Traveler, and the fateful events that set her on a path to eventually join the Mighty Nein.

Jester’s story is brought to life by writer Sam Maggs (Captain Marvel; The Unstoppable Wasp) with art by Hunter Severn Bonyun, in direct consultation with Laura Bailey!
It’s available as a gorgeous hardcover, ready to take its place in your Critical Role library!

Carl Barks: Walt Disney’s Donald Duck – Balloonatics

A loony balloon, a fraidy falcon, and a new Woodchuck series!
Carl Barks delivers another superb collection of outrageous hijinks, preposterous puzzlements, and all-around comics brilliance.

Carl Barks’s stories of the Junior Woodchucks starring Huey, Dewey, and Louie ― written and penciled by Barks with finishes by internationally acclaimed Duck artist Daan Jippes ― debut in this volume!

Other stories include: When Gyro Gearloose invents a ten-story-tall Donald Duck balloon ― bigger than anything ever seen at the Macy’s Parade! ― Donald decides to take a ride. But Gyro’s “new balloon gas” is stronger than he thought it was, and Donald finds himself out of control, sailing higher and higher, until…

Then, Huey, Dewey, and Louie try to help a “fraidy falcon” overcome his fear of flying by getting Donald to help, but Donald has his own ideas…

Next, somebody’s blowing up experimental rockets at the launchpad, and the nephews are on the trail of the spy, but Donald’s sure of who it’s not ― until he finds himself on board the next rocket to blast-off…

180 pages of story and art, each meticulously restored and newly colored. Insightful story notes by an international panel of Barks experts.

Alan Moore: Saga of the Swamp Thing Box Set

All the groundbreaking Saga of the Swamp Thing graphic novels by Alan Moore, the writer of Watchmen and V For Vendetta, in a gorgeous slipcase box set!

Before Watchmen, Alan Moore made his debut in the U.S. comic book industry with the revitalization of the horror comic book The Swamp Thing.
His deconstruction of the classic monster stretched the creative boundaries of the medium and became one of the most spectacular series in comic book history. With modern-day issues explored against a backdrop of horror, The Swamp Thing stories became commentaries on environmental, political, and social issues, unflinching in their relevance.

Created out of the Swamp by a freak accident, Swamp Thing is an elemental creature who uses the forces of nature and wisdom of the plant kingdom to fight the polluted world’s self-destruction.
Alan Moore took the Swamp Thing to new heights in the 1980s with his unique narrative approach. His provocative and groundbreaking writing, combined with masterly artwork by some of the medium’s top artists, made Swamp Thing one of the great comics of the late twentieth century.

Book One begins with the story The Anatomy Lesson, a haunting origin story that reshapes Swamp Thing mythology with terrifying revelations that begin a journey of discovery and adventure that will take him across the stars and beyond.

In second collection, The Swamp Thing says goodbye to the illusion of his own humanity after learning that he is 100% plant, meets a crew of benevolent alien invaders inspired by the classic comic strip Pogo (also set in the swamp), and consummates his relationship with Abigail Arcane as only he could.

The third volume is brimming with visceral horrors including underwater vampires, a werewolf with an unusual curse, the hideous madman called Nukeface.
Best of all, this volume features the comics debut of John Constantine, Hellblazer, who launches Swamp Thing on a voyage of self-discovery that will take him from the darkest corners of America to the roots of his own long-hidden heritage.

Volume four brings Swamp Thing’s quest for self-discovery with the mystic John Constantine to its shattering conclusion.
A harbinger of doom has been released with the sole charge of waking an evil beyond comprehension, and Swamp Thing, John Constantine, Deadman, The Phantom Stranger, Etrigan the Demon, The Spectre and other masters of the occult must unite against the dark forces that threaten to eradicate Heaven’s light.

The fifth volume begins as Swamp Thing returns from his sojourn to hell, only to learn that his girlfriend Abby is being persecuted for their “unnatural relations.”
When she skips town for Gotham City, he follows and runs afoul of Batman, Lex Luthor, and the Gotham City Police Department.

The sixth and final volume collects Moore’s entire run, reprinting issues #57-64 and features the classic stories Loving the Alien and All Flesh is Grass.

Mike Mignola & John Arcudi: B.P.R.D. – Hell on Earth 3

This omnibus edition collects B.P.R.D. Hell on Earth volumes 7-9 in paperback for the first time, plus an expanded sketchbook section.

Roxanne Moreil & Cyril Pedrosa: The Golden Age 2

Following the epic cliffhanger in volume one, The Golden Age Book 2 concludes this exciting, medieval graphic novel duology.

Tilda just wanted to reclaim her throne and now she has disappeared…and the only clue is the mysterious treasure of Ohman.

As the rightful heir of late King Ronan, Tilda wants to deliver her people from famine and strife.
But on the eve of her coronation, her younger brother, backed by a cabal of power-hungry lords, usurps her throne and casts her into exile, causing Tilda to go on the run.

With the help of her last remaining allies, Tankred and Bertil, she travels throughout the hinterland of her kingdom. Wherever she goes, the common folk whisper of a legendary bygone era when all men lived freely.

There are those who want to return to this golden age–at any cost. Where is Tilda, and will she be able to lead her kingdom amidst revolution?

Tom King & Jorge Fornés: Rorschach

Rorschach is back. Whoever he is.

It’s been 35 years since Ozymandias dropped a giant interdimensional squid on New York City, killing thousands and destroying the public’s trust in heroes once and for all.

And since that time, one figure in a fedora, mask, and trench coat has become a divisive cultural icon.
So what does it mean when Rorschach reappears as an assassin trying to kill a candidate running against President Robert Redford?

Who is the man behind the mask, and why is he acting this way?

It’s up to one detective to uncover the true identity of this would-be killer–and it will take him into a web of conspiracies involving alien invasions, disgraced do-gooders, mystic visions, and yes, comic books.

Writer Tom King joins forces with artist Jorge Fornés for a new miniseries that explores the mythic qualities of one of the most compelling characters from the bestselling graphic novel of all time, Watchmen.

Collects Rorschach #1-12.
