CANNON
by Wallace Wood
$35.00 / 296 pgs / BW / 11 x 7

Under the employ of the CIA, Cannon endures nude torture by beautiful women, explosive gunplay, naked catfights, bone-crunching plastic surgery, Hitler, nihilistic lovemaking, Weasel the spy, naked women, death from above, and more naked women! Because Cannon first appeared in the US military newspaper Overseas Weekly in the 1960s, it was not subject to the usual editorial censorship and legendary artist Wallace Wood took full advantage, producing a Cold War spy serial rife with sex and violence in an effort to support our troops!

LAND OF The SONS
by Gipi
$29.99 /HC / 288 pgs / BW / 6 x 9
Land of the Sons is Gipi’s most artistically accomplished work to date, juxtaposing the stark savagery of the post-apocalyptic narrative with the Italian master’s dense and expressive line work. While similar tonally, Sons, unlike Lord of the Flies, lays the groundwork for humanity overcoming sheer brutality and personal desires, while commenting on the fragile state of masculinity and human nature itself.
