Cartoonist Meredith McClaren (Hinges) tells five short, sexy stories featuring superheroes, supervillains, sidekicks, and the people who love them.

A tactician and superhero discuss their desires, limits, and kinks before their first time, and perhaps get a little too excited in the process.

A pair of supervillains explore gender and sex together, while growing closer in their relationship.

Lesbian heroes try out a kinky roleplaying scenario, and discover how to make it work for both of them.

And an exhausted assassin relaxes after a long day with the kind (yet firm) attentions of his husband.

Told with care, sex-positivity, and humor, and featuring a wide variety of sexualities and bodies, Super Fun Sexy Times aims to create an erotic reading experience that lives up to its name!

Gilbert Hernandez: Hypnotwist / Scarlet by Starlight

In the Eisner Award-winning wordless comic (silent movie?) “Hypnotwist,” Hernandez’s B-movie star Fritz plays a character who doesn’t seem to be going anywhere, until she puts on a pair of glittery pumps.

Her wanderings become increasingly surreal as she confronts motherhood, alcoholism, a sinister smiley face, cruelty, and her worst fate: “Killer” cameos!

Includes 16 pages of previously unpublished, additional material.

“Scarlet by Starlight” is a B movie that’s Star Trek meets Heart of Darkness.

“Scientists,” or colonizers, are doing research, surrounded by “primitive” fauna they affectionately nickname or treat like pests. Fritz plays Scarlet, a peaceful, catlike humanoid with a mate and children. When she becomes infatuated with one of the scientists, the fragile web of relationships explodes into violence and death, calling into question who the “advanced, civilized” creatures really are.

The two graphic novellas that comprise the book will be published together with two covers, so the two stories each end in the middle of the book (with the one you’re not reading being upside down).
This very cool, handsome “Double Feature” package will be an essential item for Love and Rockets completists!

This silent guerrilla war has raged for millennia, shaping the very fabric of the universe. But now the countdown to the final battle has begun, and soon everyone will have to make their choice: crushing, soul-rending conformity, or radical, anarchic freedom?

Which side are you on?

New York Times best-selling author Grant Morrison’s groundbreaking saga of spiritual engineering and psycho-cognitive hacking is now available for the first time in four definitive trade paperback editions. This final volume collects The Invisibles Vol. 2 #14-22 and The Invisibles Vol. 3 #12-1, and features art by Chris Weston, Sean Phillips, Philip Bond and Frank Quitely.
