'Bedlam Volume 1

Bedlam Volume 1
by Nick Spencer / Riley Rossmo

The homicidal villain who once terrorized the city claims he's cured, and all he wants to do is help. Who can trust him? If you enjoy a creepy thriller, Bedlam is your book.


by Jeremy Baum (editor)

If you were to interpret the concept of memory in comic form, what would it look like? Well, it may look like any of these comics, by artists like J.T. Dockery, Eric Haven, Danny Hellman, Hans Rickheit, Jim Rugg, Tom Scioli, and many more.

'Peter Bagge's Other Stuff

Peter Bagge's Other Stuff
by Peter Bagge

While this is an odds-and-ends compilation of a number of the creator of Hate's shorter works, it is by no means a "b-sides and outtakes" collection. In Other Stuff, Bagge collaborates with Daniel Clowes, Adrian Tomine, R. Crumb, Johnny Ryan, Alan Moore, and the Hernandez Brothers.
