The Factor

There’s a hero. He saves the day. But what effect does he have on everyone else’s life?
This is the book where you never see the hero. It isn’t about him. These are the tales of the man on the street, the cop on the beat, the dreamers and schemers and even the kid playing with a doll of the hero. One person can change the world for so many…
This is a complete collection of the series that got Nat Gertler the first of his Eisner Award nominations. Over 20 short stories in all adding up to one full graphic novel, with a range of artists including Huntress co-creator Joe Staton, children’s book creator Adam Rex, mini-comics king Matt Feazell, crime novelist Alex Grecian, and Eisner- and LA Times Book Prize-winning graphic novelist Carla Speed McNeil.

XVI Short Stories

Working on comic art since the early 1980s, Bernie Mireault has created numerous short stories that are collected for the first time here and presented with notes on story provenance and art production along with various strips and illustrations.

While greatly influenced by the North American mainstream superhero comic book tradition, Mireault is also attracted to the North American underground, European and Japanese comic art, all of which are combined in his approach to storytelling. The stories presented here were all created in perfect creative freedom and free of interference. Included in this collection are the first four stories to feature Mireault’s best-known character, “The Jam,” the original comics being hard to find.

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.

The Misadventures of Prince Ivan

the_misadventures_of_cover_for_kindleFrom Diane Duane, the best-selling creator of the Young Wizards books and Sherlock, the Hugo Award-nominated artist, comes this hilarious graphic novel of fairy tales gone wrong… now in a larger edition.

Once upon a time, there lived a prince…

…but not your ordinary prince with some run-of-the-mill royal destiny. When Ivan’s three sisters are married off to enchanted princes and he goes off in search of his own true love, he finds himself matched up with the sorceress and warrior maiden Marya Morevna, fairest princess in all the Russias. Shortly the two of them are navigating the emotional “white water” of one of the world’s more traumatic fairy tales — but not without help, not without high hopes of a happy ending, and not without a lot of funny stuff along the way. Prepare yourself to make the acquaintance of the Little Humbacked Horse, who just can’t get enough junk food… the Raven Prince who knows the ins and outs of the world’s strangest military equipment catalog… the terrible secret in the cellar of Marya Morevna’s palace… a whole heap of the most opinionated talking animals you’ll ever meet… all ending up in the world’s biggest fairy tale smackdown!
