Viikinkiajan Suomeen sijoittuva huima seikkailukertomus juhlavana, kangaskantisena kirjana!
Kostolla on aina hintansa.
Nuoren Ari Halikon koko elämä mullistuu talvisena yönä vuonna 916, kun kahden suvun välinen verikosto huipentuu talonpolttoon ja Halikon suvun veriseen tuhoon.
Tästä alkaa Arin koko elämän läpi käyvä kostotie, joka vie hänet loputtoman idäntien läpi, orjasta soturiksi, soturista päälliköksi ja takaisin riitaisten suursukujen hallitsemaan Suomeen.
Hatara rauha järkkyy Ari Halikon saapuessa sotureineen rakentamaan sukunsa kotia uudelleen ja maksamaan vanhoja verisiä velkoja.
Voiko kerran miekkaan tarttunut Ari välttyä tekojensa seurauksilta, kun ruotsalaiset, suomalaiset ja hämäläiset imeytyvät kaikki mukaan sodan kurimukseen ja metsäiset rannat peittyvät savuun ja ruumisröykkiöihin?
Tuomas Myllylän Pakanat on jo muodostunut suomalaisen historiallisen seikkailusarjakuvan moderniksi klassikoksi.
Tämä restauroitu juhlajulkaisu sisältää koko alkuperäisen sarjan uudelleenladottuna, upouuden epilogin, arkeologi Sami Ranisen artikkelin Ari Halikon maailmasta sekä Myllylän uuden esipuheen.
“Pakanat on tarina Suomesta ja suomalaisuudesta, sen kauniista ja rumemmista puolista. Se ammentaa tutuista myyteistä, mutta sijoittaa elementit elävästi kuvattuun historialliseen kehykseen. Tämän saagan luettuaan ei voi kuin ihmetellä: miksi kukaan kotimainen sarjakuvantekijä ei ole tehnyt tällaista aikaisemmin?”
– Petri Hiltunen.

Kaisa Leka & Christoffer Leka: Before the Sun Sets
This was the plan: In the summer of 2019 the three of us (Kaisa, Jonne and Christoffer) were to ride our bikes from Alaska to California.
But as we know all too well, life rarely submits to the plans of us mortals.
Depression made an unwelcome appearance in Jonne’s life the fall before our journey. Months passed, spring arrived with green leaves and bird songs, but he dull blanket of greyness that enclosed Jonne would not let go. It became apparent that our grand expedition would be one cyclist short of three.
But even though Jonne wouldn’t be able to accompany us in person we nonetheless wanted to include them in this exciting adventure of ours in an alternative way: Every day during the journey we would seek out a post office and mail Jonne a postcard (and on occasion more than one) in which we recollected all the ups and downs on the journey – sharing with Jonne the thoughts while pedaling on those endless roads.
We told them about the people we met, reported the roads we took, and disclosed what kind of weather we endured.
And that is what you will find inside this box: The story of our great journey along the Western coast of America, beautifully reproduced in what came to total a full 123 postcards.
There’s also a wonderful little map with additional information, because every adventurer needs a map!

Yuta Okkotsu is a nervous high school student who is suffering from a serious problem–his childhood friend Rika has turned into a Curse and won’t leave him alone.

A fantasy graphic novel about Lizzy, a girl who gets cursed by a wishing well, and her adventure to grant three wishes in order to break free.
Li-Zhen’s life on the archipelago is simple.
Known to friends and family as Lizzy, she takes care of her grandfather and their goats, she flirts with the woman who helps row the ferry, and she stays away from the fog that comes in the night―and the monsters hiding within it.
But Lizzy’s life comes apart when she steals a handful of coins from a sacred well to cover a debt.
The well requires repayment, but it doesn’t deal in coins. It needs wishes, and its minions will drown Lizzy in its depths if she doesn’t grant them.
Lizzy finds herself on a quest to uncover hidden memories, bestow great wealth, and face the magical secrets that nearly destroyed her family―and are now returning to threaten everything she has ever known.
In this breathtaking graphic novel, Jake Wyatt and Choo have created a modern fable based on magic and family secrets, exploring the power―and limits―of wishes.
A boldly drawn, unforgettable memoir about trauma and the barriers to gender affirming health care.
In the winter of 2004, a shy woman named Emma sits in Toby’s office.
She wants to share this wonderful new book she’s reading, but Toby, her therapist, is concerned with other things.
Emma is transgender, and has sought out Toby for approval for hormone replacement therapy. Emma has shown up at the therapy sessions as an outgoing, confident young woman named Katina, and a depressed, submissive workaholic named Ed.
She has little or no memory of her actions when presenting as these other two people. And then Toby asks about her childhood . . .
As the story unfolds, we discover clues to Emma’s troubled past and how and why these other two people may have come into existence.
As Toby juggles treating three separate people, each with their own unique personalities and memories, he begins to wonder if Emma is merely acting out to get attention, or if she actually has Dissociative Identity Disorder.
Is she just a troubled woman in need of help? And is “the third person” in her brain protecting her, or derailing her chances of ever finding peace?
The Third Person is a riveting memoir from newcomer Emma Grove.
Drawn in thick, emotive lines, with the refined style of a comics vet, Grove has created a singular, gripping depiction of the intersection of identities and trauma. The Third Person is a testament to the importance of having the space to heal and live authentically.

Grace Ellis & Hannah Templer: Flung Out of Space
A fictional and complex portrait of bestselling author Patricia Highsmith caught up in the longing that would inspire her queer classic, The Price of Salt.
Flung Out of Space is both a love letter to the essential lesbian novel, The Price of Salt, and an examination of its notorious author, Patricia Highsmith .
Veteran comics creators Grace Ellis and Hannah Templer have teamed up to tell this story through Highsmith’s eyes–reimagining the events that inspired her to write the story that would become a foundational piece of queer literature.
Flung Out of Space opens with Pat begrudgingly writing low-brow comics.
A drinker, a smoker, and a hater of life, Pat knows she can do better. Her brain churns with images of the great novel she could and should be writing–what will eventually be Strangers on a Train– which would later be adapted into a classic film by Alfred Hitchcock in 1951.
At the same time, Pat, a lesbian consumed with self-loathing, is in and out of conversion therapy, leaving a trail of sexual conquests and broken hearts in her wake.
However, one of those very affairs and a chance encounter in a department store give Pat the idea for her soon-to-be beloved tale of homosexual love that was the first of its kind–it gave the lesbian protagonists a happy ending.
This is not just the story behind a classic queer book, but of a queer artist who was deeply flawed. It’s a comic about what it was like to write comics in the 1950s, but also about what it means to be a writer at any time in history, struggling to find your voice.
Author Grace Ellis contextualizes Patricia Highsmith as both an unintentional queer icon and a figure whose problematic views and noted anti-Semitism have cemented her controversial legacy.
Highsmith’s life imitated her art with results as devastating as the plot twists that brought her fame and fortune.

Magnificent mastery, invention, and poetry, this is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful jewels of the exciting saga of the OBSCURE CITIES.

Collects issues #11-15 of the super-hot monthly series!
A wormhole into a fleeting romance told in a mind-bending first-person chorus.
Time Zone J is Julie Doucet’s first inked comic since she famously quit in the nineties after an exhausting career in an industry that, at the time, made little room for women.
The year is 1989 and twenty-three-year-old Doucet is flying to France to meet with a soldier.
He’s a man she only knows through their mail correspondence, a common enough reality of the zine era, when comics were mailed from cartoonist to reader and close relationships were formed. Time is not on their side–the soldier is just on furlough for a few days–but the two make the most of their visit and discuss future plans, maybe even Christmas in Doucet’s city, Montreal.
Based on diary entries from the whirlwind romance, the passion and high emotions of youth–before you know the limits of love, before you know the difference between love and lust–seep through the pages. In contrast to the tryst, Doucet draws herself today, at fifty-five.
After years of being in a crowd of men, Doucet compulsively returns to drawing, creating an alternate universe that foregrounds women. The pages of Time Zone J overflow with images pulled from past and present, faces and people that have inspired Doucet across more than three decades of creative work.

Mickey, Minnie, Donald Duck, Horace Horsecollar, and Clarabelle Cow go camping to forget the Great Depression.
But when they return to Mouseton, they find shady real-estate developer Rock Fuller destroying it to build a golf course… with the help of an army of zombies, transformed from normal citizens with a magic drink!
What does Mickey’s old enemy Pegleg Pete have to do with this evil scheme… and can Mickey trip it up?
Famed French cartoonist Régis Loisel won the Angouleme International Comics Festival’s Grand Prize in 2006, and has been nominated in other years for numerous projects. Loisel has also worked as a Disney animator and was thrilled to produce this stellar tribute!
Zombie Coffee is told in the daily-comic-strip-serial style of Disney legend Floyd Gottfredson’s beloved early Mickey adventures — packed with action, laughs, and magnificent details that explode off the pages!
This deluxe edition is a landscape-formatted hardcover that comes in a portrait-formatted slipcase — and so the buyer can shelve it vertically but read it in its full cinemascope-style glory!
Mike Mignola: Hellboy in Hell and Other Stories Artisan Edition
See Mike Mignola’s art as you never have before-presented in IDW’s Artisan Edition format!
Mike Mignola has been (and remains!) one of the preeminent comics creators of the past several decades.
His career was already firmly established for his outstanding work on characters like Batman, Wolverine, a myriad of beautiful covers and more… And then came Hellboy.
Mignola’s iconic creation struck a meteoric chord with fans from the very start and has not abated in the 25-plus years since the character’s debut.
This Artisan Edition features the first five issues of Hellboy in Hell as well as a wealth of historic supplementary material: the first three Hellboy stories-the two initial four-pagers, produced for promotional purposes, and the 10-page story from John Byrne’s Nextmen #21-plus The Corpse, and two other tales selected by Mignola for inclusion.
Nearly every page has been scanned from Mignola’s original art and showcases the artist’s gorgeous work as closely as possible to the physical page-this is a book for fans of great storytelling and students of the craft.
An Artisan Edition endeavors to mimic as closely as possible the experience of viewing the actual original art-for instance, corrections, blue pencils, paste-overs, all the little nuances that make original art unique.
Unless you are holding Mike’s art in your hands, there is no way to better experience his original art.
Chris Samnee & Laura Samnee: Jonna and the Unpossible Monsters 2
Jonna and Rainbow are sisters, but that doesn’t mean they’re all that similar: Rainbow’s the bookish one, Jonna is the whirlwind.
Jonna’s also incredibly strong and nearly invulnerable–which will come in handy as they search the ruined, monster-infested wasteland that was once their home while looking for their missing father.
Their world, once lush and bountiful, has been overrun by giant monsters and prickly, unnatural vines that strangle the life from the natural flora and fauna. The girls thought that they had found a place of calm and security–a notion proved false when a huge beast literally crashed through the walls.
With their safe haven destroyed, the girls set out again, this time following a lead to a hidden city of humans that have built a home in the shattered remnants of a mighty redwood forest.
Lured by heartwarming tales of community, Rainbow and Jonna find that life in the big city can be a little confusing!
Jonna finds celebrity in the monster-fighting arena, while Rainbow explores their new surroundings, searching for a bit of human kindness and not liking what she sees.
Can the two keep their spirits up and their skin on as they outpunch unpossible monsters and outwit not-so-nice humans that stand in their way?
Martin Vaughn-James: The Projector and Elephant
Two surreal graphic novels about technology, corporatization, and alienation in the modern world by a cult-favorite comics innovator.
In 1968, the British artist and writer Martin Vaughn-James emigrated to Canada.
Over the next eight years, he proceeded to produce some of the most mesmerizing and inventive works in comics, light-years ahead of his contemporaries.
Among them were Elephant and The Projector, linked graphic novels that guide the reader (and a bespectacled Everyman) through landscapes built out of both the everyday and the nightmarish.
Jam-packed superhighways, plummeting horses, vast urban wastelands, colossal businessmen, demented cartoon animals, and interstellar oranges are just a small part of Vaughn-James’s prophetic vision of society’s turn away from the natural world to the artificial.
Together for the first time in a single volume, designed and edited by Seth and with an introduction by Jeet Heer, Elephant and The Projector stand as a reminder that we have yet to catch up to Vaughn-James.

A queer coming-of-age story, complete with secret cigarettes, gross gym teachers, and a lot of church.
It’s the early 2000s.
Lauren is fifteen, soft-spoken, and ashamed of her body.
She’s a devout member of an evangelical church, but when her Bible-thumping parents forbid Lauren to bring evolution textbooks home, she opts to study at her schoolmate Mariah’s house.
Mariah has dial-up internet, an absentee mom, and a Wiccan altar–the perfect setting for a study session and sleepover to remember.
That evening, Mariah gives Lauren a makeover and the two melt into each other, in what becomes Lauren’s first queer encounter. Afterward, a potent blend of Christian guilt and internalized homophobia causes Lauren to question the experience.
Author Jessica Campbell ( XTC69) uses frankness and dark humor to articulate Lauren’s burgeoning crisis of faith and sexuality.
She captures teenage antics and banter with astute comedic style, simultaneously skewering bullies, a culture of slut-shaming, and the devastating impact of religious zealotry.
Rave is an instant classic, a coming-of-age story about the secret spaces young women create and the wider social structures that fail them.
Spanish writer and artist GUILLEM MARCH is best known for his ongoing, extensive work with DC Comics on Batman, Catwoman, and Harley Quinn and has worked as an artist on several graphic novels including the English editions of Monika with Titan Comics and The Dream with Europe Comics.
Here, he takes up his pen for an edgy new volume about a highly unconventional angel named Karmen and the young woman she takes under her wing when a case of heartbreak strikes hard.
Packed with surprises and metaphysics, this gorgeously drawn series deploys tenderness and humor as it dives deep into topics that matter.
Collects KARMEN #1-5.

Robert Coover & Art Spiegelman: Katukyttä
Kokeilevan kirjallisuuden legenda Robert Coover ja underground-sarjakuvan legenda Art Spiegelman ovat yhdistäneet voimansa, ja tuloksena on kuvitettu pienoisromaani Katukyttä, tulevaisuuteen sijoittuva kertomus poliisimiehestä, joka joutuu työpäivän aikana kohtaamaan kaikenlaista robottipoliiseista eläviin kuolleisiin, loppujen lopuksi myös itsensä.
Kun Coover ja Spiegelman ovat asialla, mikään ei ole pyhää, ja kyytiä saavat instituutiot siinä missä ihmisetkin. Ja virukset. Ja naurun säestyksellä.
