Now announcing: the First Second Fall 2013 season of books!

Gems, every one of them.  We swear.


Adventures in Cartooning: Characters in Action, by James Sturm, Andrew Arnold, and Alexis Frederick-Frost.  This book is formatted like the first one — full color and full of how-to instruction.  It’s super!


Battling Boy, by Paul Pope.  Entertainment Weekly can tell you all about this book.  What we have to say: it’s going to be awesome.


Boxers, by Gene Luen Yang.  The first half of a diptych about the Boxer Rebellion.  Wired can tell you all about this book.  This is Gene’s first single-author graphic novel project since American Born Chinese, and it’s just as awesome as that book was.


 Saints, by Gene Luen Yang.  The second half of the diptych — they both come out on the same day, so there’s no waiting years to finish the story!  The two books are available separately or as a boxed set.


The Cute Girl Network, by Greg Means, MK Reed, and Joe Flood.  It’s love at first sight for Jane and Jack — until Jane’s busybody friends decide she deserves better!


Delilah Dirk and the Turkish Lieutenant, by Tony Cliff.  This is going to be the best nineteenth century adventure novel you’ll read all year!  You can’t tell in this cover image, but the title text after ‘Delilah Dirk’ is actually printed in silver foil.


Fairy Tale Comics, edited by Chris Duffy, with a cover by Eleanor Davis and fairy tales by: Bobby London, Emily Carroll, Gilbert Hernandez, Vanessa Davis, Gigi D.G., Ramona Fradon, Jaime Hernandez, Luke Pearson, Brett Helquist, Joseph Lambert, Raina Telgemeier, Charise Mericle Harper, Graham Annable, Jillian Tamaki, Karl Kerschl, David Mazzucchelli, and Craig Thompson!  This book is a companion to Nursery Rhyme Comics, and it’s just as amazing.


Tune: Still Life, by Derek Kirk Kim and Les McClaine.  This is the sequel to Tune: Vanishing Point — Andy’s still stuck in an alien zoo, and it looks like he’ll be there — for life!

We’re super-excited for this season, you guys — it’s filled with wonderful books!
