Jinx Freeze

(W) Hurk (A/CA) Hurk
In Shops: Dec 1, 2021
SRP: $16.95

Crime has descended on the normally tranquil Riviera – a solid gold sculpture on loan from the Gurgleheim Museum has been stolen and the local police force are well out of their depth. They need help and they need it fast. But local Henshin hero King Gianthead Fighter Policeman O.X. is lost in a waking reverie of lucid dreams and his potential replacements – like Modern Tahzen and Danny Kildare the Space Priest – aren’t faring much better. And why are people going into the Great Exhibition of 11851, the pop-up selfie experience in the middle of town, but not coming out again?

Fortunately, Marge Maggiore has picked up the trail and has a plan to catch the villains and save the day – if only she can clear her name for a crime she didn’t commit!

Told through the twisted creative lens of Hurk in his long-awaited full-length technicolor debut, Jinx Freeze is a heist story unlike any you’ve read before!

Avery Hill Publishing Reveals its Spring 2022 Releases

2120

George Wylesol
Out 19/05/2022 (UK) – 26/05/2022 (USA)
504 pages, softcover, full colour throughout, 195 x 271mm

A fascinating philosophical journey framed as a loving tribute to classic point and click video games.

You’re Wade, a schlubby middle-aged computer repairman, sent to fix a computer in a vacant, nondescript office building. When you get inside the door locks behind you, and you can’t get out. Now the adventure begins! You have to explore this building and try to find your way home. The building is huge on the inside with a lot of sprawling hallways and empty rooms but your only hope is to uncover clues and try to work out the mystery this whole experience hangs on.

Presented as a blend of classic ‘choose your own adventure’ stories and point and click escape games, 2120 offers readers the chance to explore these liminal spaces and, at the same time, take an existential journey of discovery.

George Wylesol is an illustrator/designer/writer from Philadelphia, living and working in Baltimore.
He has an MFA in Illustration Practice from Maryland Institute College of Art.
