Captain Billy’s Whiz Bang

cbwbEdited by Captain Billy Fawcett, a veteran of the Spanish-American War and World War I, this complete facsimile edition of the February, 1922 issue of Captain Billy’s Whiz Bang featuring a collection of humorous prose, poetry, and essays on the carefree life was the racy magazine for libertines in its day. From its opening description of Cuba as “the land of liberty” through the jokes littered with the situations, slang, and bigotries of the day, this book serves as a fascinating time capsule of what great great grampa’s world was like. Entertaining and educational, Capt. Billy’s Whiz Bang is a lively piece of pop culture history, living up to both its masthead description as “America’s Magazine of Wit, Humor, and Filosophy” and its cover motto, “Explosion of Pedigreed Bunk.”

Roadways

roadwaysWritten by Star Trek novelist Jeffrey Lang, drawn by Ted Slampyak, Steve Lieber, and John Drury

This is the tale of John Neville, a man of science, born to the staid life of an academic.

But when his assistant goes missing, Neville’s search for her takes him to places he could never imagine, worlds on the other side of The Gate… worlds of monsters and mysteries, of tyrants in glass towers and nomads in the deserts; worlds where death by bow or blade is always just around the corner.

This is the first time this high-adventure comic has been collected into a single volume.

Trypto the Acid Dog

Trypto the Acid Dog coverby Bill Mumy, Miguel Ferrer, and Steve Leialoha

What do you get when two well-respected actors and long-time musical collaborators team up with an Eisner Award-winning artist to chronicle the life of a dog of vengeance?

You get something odd, something edgy, something unique. You get Trypto, the Acid Dog. Born of water, born of fire, born of blood, born of acid, Trypto is unlike other dogs. In this series of offbeat tales, the canine avenger fights against those who would abuse Mother Earth and her creatures.

Produced over the course of a decade, the complete run of Trypto stories is brought together for the first time in this 25th anniversary collection.
