Digital exclusives: Rob Walton’s RAGMOP & Alex Robinson’s LOWER REGIONS: DEFENSE OF THE WEST GATE!
Two veteran indie cartoonists have released their first ever digital-exclusive graphic novels with Top Shelf! First, Rob Walton presents the new edition of his cult favorite RAGMOP, a completely loony romp through time and space jam-packed with talking dinosaurs, evil popes, fallen angels, balsa wood spaceships, interstellar coffee corporations, rival assassins from competing global conspiracies, countless sight gags and pop-culture parodies, and debates over everything from politico-economic theory to quantum physics to the merits of mid-century animators. (whew!) It’s 422 massive pages for only $7.99!
Also, Alex Robinson returns with a sequel to his exuberant fantasy dungeon-crawl LOWER REGIONS! The new book, LOWER REGIONS: DEFENSE OF THE WEST GATE, switches perspective to the neurotic, terrified bug-creatures assigned to guard one particular dungeon gate. Plus: a brand-new bonus story, “FIGHT!!” in which our barbarian heroine battles an undead curse! These hilarious and thrilling tales are only $1.99 for 25 pages.
