”Megahex is basically about a bunch of people (and “people”) watching TV and getting wasted and fighting and fucking and pranking each other. Oh, and depression. What’s not to love?!“ - Peter Bagge
Hip Hop Family Tree Vol. 2: 1981-1983
by Ed Piskor
”…Presents the facts in a nostalgic, faded-ink and rubbery realism of ’70s Marvel Comics style, turning raps early innovators into larger than life heroes of history.” - Spin Magazine
Waiting for the Great Pumpkin
by Charles M. Schulz
”Novelty Peanuts books are the best kind of novelty book.” - The Comics Reporter
Sometimes I still can’t believe we’re putting out a gay manga anthology with the best damn comics publisher in the world!
If you haven’t already pre-ordered Simon Hanselmann’s amazing Megahex, do yourself a favor and pick it up at your local comic shop this week. And don’t miss Hanselmann’s upcoming North American tour with Patrick Kyle and Michael DeForge!
