Capt. Billy’s Whiz Bang Winter Annual: Pedigree Follies of 1922-23

Capt. Billy's Whiz Bang Winter AnnualCaptain Billy’s Whiz Bang was the scandalous humor magazine of its day, and this is a reproduction of the 1921-1922 Annual, a quadruple-length dose of everything that made the magazine what it was – the jokes, the poems, the homespun philosophy, salacious articles like “The Passing of ‘Sappho'” or a randy travelogue by the Reverend “Golightly” Morrill. And to make this of special interest for those curious about WhizBang, it leads off with the story of the early days of the magazine.

This is a real look at what your great granddaddy may have laughed at… and with that comes all of the attitudes of the time, with racism, sexism, and antisemitism that you would never find in a mainstream magazine today. This book is not recommended for those with strong sensitivities who cannot view it as a piece of our history.

The Oddfather

The Oddfather coverBy Sol Weinstein and Howard Albrecht

Mafia Mia! 

You’ll be swept along by this breathless story of the Provolone Family—its lust and lechery, its diabolical enemies, its heart-stopping gang wars and automobile chases—into a world where betrayal is the order of the day and kinky sex the order of the night.

You’ll never forget the members of this illustrious family: Don Guido Provolone, the big cheese himself; Fungi the Fornicator, his eldest son; Carmine the Cretin, his middle son; Nicholas the Sensitive, youngest in the family; and an unbelievable assortment of relatives and hired hands.

Here is an intimate look into the innermost workings of a Mafia menagerie—men of wild appetites and primitive instincts.

Here is the Mafia that the bestselling Godfather legend only hinted at—madness in all its colorful blood and tomato sauce surreality.

If you don’t die laughing (or at least chuckle and smile a lot) the two authors promise to help arrange your upcoming funeral.

Jonathan Segal Chicken

JSCaudiocoverBy Sol Weinstein and Howard Albrecht

Sure, you know about chicken soup, but do you know about a souped-up chicken?

Jonathan Segal Chicken was just another piece of kosher poultry, but he decided he wanted something more. He wanted to fly, and fly he did, on adventures that take him out into the world… and beyond.

This classic parody from the 1970s is now available again in this newly redesigned edition.

“It is a witty and bitchy book, which amply repays the time and trouble which were once taken with its more serious and less significant forbear.” – The Spectator (UK)

You’ll All Be Sorry!

You'll All Be Sorry!Top comics writer Gail Simone shreds the sacred cows of comics in this first-ever collection of her humorous prose. In this mixture of new stories and classics from her long-running online column, Simone sends up websites, Watchmen, Whiteout, and Wizard, turning her sharp wit on characters, pros, and fans alike. Includes illustrations. Includes over 30 columns, freshly laid out, many with illustrations. Simone is joined by a number of her fellow comics creators, who provide illustrations or offer up their own Condensed Comics Classics. Says Simone: “This is a book that has been long-requested, mainly by myself, but also some random others, mostly demi-people who don’t get out much and don’t understand what real life is about. It collects some of my classic ‘humor’ columns, ‘satirizing’ an ‘industry’ I knew ‘nothing’ about, as well as some columns that just plain ‘sucked.’ I like it and I’m sure you (or others less discerning) will, also! *” * Surety not legally binding.

Huck Finn and the Zombie Jim

HuckFinnCover600x900Mark Twain’s Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is considered the greatest American novel, but it has long faced two problems in reaching new readers: a distasteful racial slur, and the lack of the sort of genre elements that draw in today’s young readers. Here we offer you the full text of the book, with just a single word change allowing us to bring you exciting passages like:


Strange zombies would stand with their mouths open and look him all over, same as if he was a wonder. 

I see it warn’t no use wasting words—you can’t learn a zombie to argue. So I quit.

Children was heeling it ahead of the mob, screaming and trying to get out of the way; and every window along the road was full of women’s heads, and there was zombie boys in every tree… 

So Tom turns to the zombie, which was looking wild and distressed, and says, kind of severe: “What do you reckon’s the matter with you, anyway?”

“Good gracious! anybody hurt?” 
“No’m. Killed a zombie.”

1741

1741FrontCover600x900In the years before America was a nation, ships were bringing a steady stream of immigrants to New York. Some were fleeing their homeland, others were seeking their fortune, many arrived in chains. In this quickly growing city, tensions mounted, fires began burning, and accusations flew.

By the time it was over, dozens would be dead – at the hands of the government.

This is a tale of desire and hope, of despair and tragedy. Grounding his story in true events, Robert Mayer (author of the acclaimed historical drama The Origin Of Sorrow) brings to life searingly vivid characters, showing how their lives intertwine with each other and with the fears and passions of the day. By humanizing major events and showing the tensions of race and class that drive them, Mayer gives us a novel that is ripped from the headlines of colonial America yet still echoes in the headlines of today.
