TVM COMPENDIUM I PB
Now in Paperback!
A TREASURY OF VICTORIAN MURDER COMPENDIUM I
Including Jack The Ripper, The Beast of Chicago
and The Fatal Bullet
Rick Geary
In this first omnibus volume from Geary’s increasingly storied Treasuries of Murder: the first trilogy of murders that made up the very first volume of this series, Jack the Ripper as only he can narrate it, The Beast of Chicago about H.H. Holmes, possibly the first serial murderer with chilling methodical means and The Fatal Bullet about the assassination of president James Garfield.
See his interview on this At the Morton Report
"Geary’s very dry wit and expert pacing hit just the right note on this journey into the macabre." -No Flying No Tights
"It is a very eye-catching, old school style of inking that is pleasant to look at and a perfect fit for the time period he’s bringing to life and the tone of the stories."
-Unshelved
"I came late to the Victorian Murder party, but I really like Geary’s just-the-facts-ma’am approach, and I’d love to read some of his earlier volumes."
-Brigid Alverson, Robot 6
"A must-read for those who love comics and Gothic-tinged history. These pages are an artist's master class. Geary's cinematic style establishes visual rhythms that set the pace for a story that remains vibrant despite the fact that the only voice we read is the narrator's. Beautiful."
-Cleveland Plain Dealer

PORTUGAL
PORTUGAL
Cyril Pedrosa

From the author of the acclaimed Equinoxes comes a return to roots that serves as spiritual renewal. Comics artist Simon Muchat is stuck. Suffering writer's block, uninspired, vegetating as a school art teacher, he is losing direction and his taste for life, until one day he is invited to appear at a comics convention in Portugal, the country his family came from and which he hadn't seen since his childhood. The experience proves cathartic. Even though he is not Portuguese himself and is a foreigner there, so many elements are familiar to him. Meeting its lively citizens, full of the zest for life, his distant yet welcoming family bringing back fond early memories, all prove reinvigorating, the breath of fresh air he so badly needed.
Based on his own experience, Pedrosa narrates this return to his roots in a deeply compelling and warmly human way. This is his bestselling graphic novel with over 100,000 copies sold in France and a winner of many prizes including Best Graphic Novel at the Angouleme Festival and FNAC Best GN.
"One of top ten graphic novels of 2017. As much a triumph of atmosphere as action. The book's artist as a young man may be disenchanted, but the dazzling, meditative panels are entirely enchanting."
-Michael Cavna, The Washington Post

But his quest goes on, driving him to break the rest of the 10 commandments in order to draw out the elusive divinity to face a grief stricken man. Until, finally, he is faced with the most serious commandment all: 'Thou shalt not kill.'

INITIATES
THE INITIATES
Etienne Davodeau
The sold out hardcover now in paperback. Etienne Davodeau is a comic artist. He doesn't know much about the world of wine-making.
Richard Leroy is a wine-maker. He's rarely even read comics.
But these two are full of good will and curiosity. Why do we choose to spend one's life writing and creating comics or producing wine? How and for whom do we do them?
To answer these questions, for more than a year, Etienne went to work in Richard's vineyards and cellar. Richard, in return, leapt into the world of comics. They opened a lot of bottles and read many comics. They traveled around, meeting authors and wine-makers sharing their passion for their jobs.
The first time a book explores the nature of a man's vocation with a true life representation of it from two very different perspectives. They get to realize they both have that precious and necessary power to bring people together.
With guest appearances by Trondheim (Dungeon, Little Nothings), Emmanuel Guibert (The Photographer) and Marc-Antoine Matthieu (Museum Vaults).

THE TRUE DEATH OF BILLY THE KID
THE TRUE DEATH OF BILLY THE KID
Rick Geary
'Being an authentic narrative of the final days in Billy the Kid's brief and turbulent life.' One of our folk legends of the great Wild West, William H. Bonney went from cowboy and gunslinger for a rancher to pure outlawry forever dodging justice in New Mexico when it wasn't even a state. On the one hand, he was charming, fun-loving –often at social events like dances-, quite appealing to the ladies. Also conversant in Spanish, "Billito" was popular with the Spanish speaking crowd. On the other hand, he had no compunction to coldly kill a man, a sheriff, a deputy, anyone who got in his way rustling cattle or horses for an illicit living. He also proved hard to keep in jail even when caught. It is probably his feats of derring-do escaping from jails that made him most famous and this is the main subject of this biography following him until he is shot in pitch darkness by lawmen obsessed with getting rid of him.

The Provocative COLETTE
 

The Provocative COLETTE
Annie Goetzinger
Many biographies describe this uncommon woman and author. It is her years of formation which are focused on here, from her marriage at the age of 20, until her divorce. "One dies only from the first man," she wrote in 1909. But this death was a new beginning, and the one that signed "Colette" from 1910 on gradually opened her eyes to her condition of a woman who was an exploited writer and a betrayed wife, and who will emancipate herself by writing, and with what talent! Incredibly complex, powerfully determined, truly gifted, Colette challenged herself to reinvent her life and assert herself as a free woman. In her day, her behavior scandalized and vexed the establishment. But in the end, she helped to free women in their thinking and became member and then president of France's prestigious Académie Goncourt, among many other honors as one of France's preeminent authors. For mature readers.
7 ¾ x 10 ¼", 128pp.., full color quarter-bound HC, $24.99; ISBN 9781681121703
