PORTRAIT OF A DRUNK HC
(W) Florent Ruppert, Jerome Mulot, Olivier Schrauwen
Guy is a mediocre mariner, able enough, but also a lazy, thieving, lying drunkard. All of which makes him more real than the swashbuckling Hollywood heroes that grace most pirate narratives. This tour de force of sea-faring gallows humor is also an international event in modern comics, teaming for the first time three titans of the field: Belgian comics master Olivier Schrauwen (Parallel Lives, Arsene Schrauwen) and the acclaimed French duo, Ruppert & Mulot (The Perineum Technique).

MACHINE NEVER BLINKS HC HISTORY SPYING & SURVEILLANCE
(W) Ivan Greenberg, Everett Patterson, Joseph Canlas
The Machine Never Blinks is a comprehensive, eye-opening picture of the use of spying and surveillance in history and legend, from the story of the Trojan Horse through 9/11 and the so-called War on Terror, including the growth of government and corporate intercepts and databases, and even surveillance as entertainment (reality TV) and convenience (smart speakers). Take a look around...Who's watching you right now?

ROUGH PEARL GN
(W) Kevin Mutch
Adam Kline is stuck in a university job, surrounded by academic boors and completely ignored by the New York art scene. Miraculously, a promotion appears and a high-end art dealer expresses interest in his work. However, he keeps blacking out at the most inopportune times and his perception of reality and fantasy begins to blur....This wryly funny tale is further enlivened, as Adam contends with an eerie, pitch-black void, flesh-eating zombies, and a network of bug-eyed aliens. As if getting by in NYC wasn't hard enough!

OLD GROWTH HC (NET) (MR)
(W) Micheal Olivo, Niv Bavarsky
This candy-colored, visual feast of a book is an exploration of prophetic dreams, personal and cultural mythology, and blind ambition in relation to individualistic and communal philosophies. Ultimately, these polarized mindsets manifest their flaws when brought to their extremes, and the major characters in the book are dragged and pulled about by their stubborn ideologies. Along the way, the story finds function in youth as a clumsy challenge to authority and a naive catalyst of change, while cryptic angels silently steer the fate of all below.
