THE ACCURSED sees a reintroduction of the dark elf villain Malekith while focusing on the idea that Thor must work together with representations from the various Nine Realms.

After the cliffhanger ending of THE GOD BUTCHER, GODBOMB opens with a quick one-off that shifts the focus over to Gorr and his origins. 

The Dumbest Idea Ever! by Jimmy Gownley - Tween, Teen, Children's, Memoir

Jimmy Gownley's returns with a graphic novel memoir about the "dumb" idea that changed his life forever! What if the dumbest idea ever turned your life upside down?

A group of supervillains is forced to make the ultimate heist in this hilarious four-issue series from Mark Millar and Leinil Yu. Their target one of the world’s most feared supervillains. He even has a superpowered protector. Clearly, this isn’t going to be easy.

Something strange is going on underwater off the shore of Prudhoe, Alaska. Dr. Lee Archer, a cetologist (she studies the songs of whales and dolphins, among other things) is called in by the Department of Homeland Security to join a team investigating. But given Dr. Lee’s political activism and her firing from NOAA, she’s not too eager to take part --- until they make her an offer she can’t refuse: They’ll help her get back custody of her son.

In this tender, bittersweet, full-color graphic novel, a young woman named Clementine discovers herself and the elusive magic of love when she meets a confident blue-haired girl named Emma: a lesbian love story for the ages that bristles with the energy of youth and rebellion and the eternal light of desire.

 

So good, so funny, so imminently readable --- Johnny Hiro returns to take on a giant gorilla who’s taken his ex hostage. Meanwhile, his current girlfriend would really like to know why he’s never mentioned this ex before. And the real danger for Johnny is going to come from a hard-hitting examination of where his life is right now.

 

The team behind POWERS creates a new spin on all-ages superhero comics with TAKIO, a fun-filled series about two bickering sisters just trying to a) save the world, and b) avoid getting grounded.

 

Taki and Olivia, the two sisters who make up TAKIO, return for more battles…and a lot more in-fighting.

 

Brought to you by the same folks who gave you ANOMALY, SHIFTER is a roaring adventure tale. It looks and feels a lot like a video game, and that’s by design. The book is also interactive: a free app lets readers make 3D elements of the book come alive on their devices.

Black Paths by David B. - Graphic novel

 

Set at the end of World War I, BLACK PATHS is rich with a poetic flow and subversive chaos. It brings to life the city of Fiume in Croatia as an Italian poet known as the “Pirate King” Gabriele d’Annunzio takes control, along with an army, of the city.

 

A big, bold book that is full of beautiful delights, AN ENCHANTMENT continues NBM’s wonderful Louvre Delights series. Each book in these editions prominently features works on display in the Louvre while telling a compelling graphic story.

Here is a book that elegantly shows the potential for comic book storytelling. Deep and emotionally complex, WHEN DAVID LOST HIS VOICE subtly unfolds into a gripping, lovely work.
