Solicited for now in comics stores, after his greatly successful Glacial Period in the Louvre collection, we publish Nicolas De Crecy’s very off the wall Salvatore series:
Vol. 1: Transports of Love
Nicolas De Crecy
The best-selling and acclaimed author of ‘Glacial Period’ in the Louvre collection returns with a new series starring a dog auto repair mechanic so in demand, he can afford to move his garage to a distant hard-to-reach peak for peace and… privacy. The privacy, as it turns out, is to build a mode of transportation that can get him through earth and seas to his beloved, far, far away. As unpredictable and totally original as ‘Glacial Period,’ this is a Plymptonesque tale filled with absurd, irresistible bittersweet humor.

CLASSICS ILLUSTRATED #11
“The Devil’s Dictionary and Other Works”
By Ambrose Bierce
Illustrated by Gahan Wilson
Ambrose Bierce’s 1911 satire is illustrated with the surreal and macabre art of famed New Yorker cartoonist Gahan Wilson, creating a funny yet poignant presentation. Switching seamlessly from illustration to full-color comics to adapt The Boarded Window, Dead, and An Imperfect Conflagration, Wilson brings his signature dark humor to Bierce’s work.
