This steampunk novel is an awesome foray into steamy Victorian London.
When society girls start being killed, clues point to an ancient Egyptian cult. There is
only one duo who can crack the case...the sister of Bram Stoker and the niece of Sherlock Holmes! Told you
it was awesome.

This American Life fans will surely recognize
the unmistakable charm and wit of the recently passed David
Rakoff. This novel in verse,
published shortly after his death, jumps from place to place and decade to
decade to tell the story of an America that is both condemned and redeemed by
Rakoff's cutting tenderness
toward his subject.

Johnny Cash: The Life Cover Image
$32.00
ISBN: 9780316194754
Availability: Hard to Find
Published: Little Brown and Company - October 29th, 2013

If you're a fan, you are already sold on this book. If you're lukewarm on Johnny Cash, there is plenty here to pique your interest. Hilburn's long association with Cash gives him a deep insight into Cash's character as well as career. Johnny Cash put plenty of his own words out there - autobiographies, interviews, songs - but an outside eye and ear discern more warmth, humor, and drive.

Published: Image Comics - July 2nd, 2013

I admit, I bought Vol. 1 only because there was a baby on the cover. Volume 2 is an even better romp. The sci-fi/fantasy setting is intriguing and the illustrations feel indulgent. This graphic novel neophyte is hooked.
