Hot Pick!umbrella2

Umbrella Academy Volume 2: Dallas TP
Dark Horse Comics
(W) Gerard Way
(A) Gabriel Bá & Dave Stewart

The team is despondent following the near apocalypse created by one of their own, and the death of their beloved mentor Pogo. So it’s a great time for another catastrophic event to rouse the team into action. The trouble is each member of the team is distracted by problems of their own. The White Violin is bedridden due to an unfortunate blow to the head. Rumor has lost her voice, the source of her power. Spaceboy has eaten himself into a near-catatonic state, while Number Five dives into some shady dealings at the dog track, and The Kraken starts looking at his brother as the key to unraveling a mysterious series of massacres. All of this leads to a blood-drenched face-off with maniacal assassins, and a plot to kill JFK!

The Book Of Genesis Illustrated By Robert Crumb HC
W.W. Norton
(W/A) Robert Crumb

The eagerly awaited graphic work from R. Crumb retells the first book of the Bible in a profoundly honest way.

Peeling away the theological and scholarly interpretations, R. Crumb — using the actual text work for his work — has imagined the Bible as it really was.

First serialized in The New Yorker, this graphic work is now available in a collected edition.

b&w $24.95
