Life With Mr. Dangerous
by Paul Hornschemeier
Amy struggles for an adult identity while finding addictive catharsis in the cartoon Mr. Dangerous. Her romantic interest is on the other side of the country, her life is lived in the shadow of her mother and her career is of the retail sales clerk variety. How does one get a life?
by Michael Deforge
There are so few alternative/indie/underground comix being produced anymore, it's always a treat when one comes out. And it's an extra treat when the comic is as good as Michael Deforge's Lose series. Weird, funny, expertly crafted.
by Cullen Bunn / Shawn Lee / Matt Kindt
The Tooth is a horrific hero who has offbeat adventures and fights ghouls and demons. If you like quirky and weird, you'll want to pull yourself a copy of The Tooth. Get it? Pull? Tooth?
