Hey Amateur! Go From Novice to Nailing it in Nine Panels

What do you want to learn about? Take your pick in this anthology combining the unprecedented approach of a “how to” book with the diverse subject matter from over 100 contributors sharing their hidden talents via one-page, nine-panel comics!

Includes entries from a variety of comics creatives including John Allison, Kelly Sue DeConnick, Becky Cloonan, Sanford Greene, Paul Pope, Gail Simone, Mark Buckingham, Box Brown, Gilbert Hernandez, Jill Thompson, Chynna Clugston Flores, and more.

Each story is part personal “how to,” part “how-so.” Some of these one-pagers will illuminate aspects of the comic book storytelling process like drawing likenesses, lettering, and cropping art panels. Others go beyond the comics world from the practical (catching a loose dog, changing a tire, speaking in public), to the fun (creating cheap horror makeup, skanking at a ska show, faking a guitar solo), to the peculiar (destroying the Internet, training your doppelgänger, surviving a bear attack–probably).

All-star creators from South Africa, South America, North America, England, India, and other parts of the world share their favorite recipes, traditions, and talents in this fun, educational anthology. Learn new skills or hone the ones you’ve got.

Bonus features include a brand-new story, “How to Wash Your Hands,” an introduction by Kelly Sue DeConnick and an essay about the traditional 9-panel grid by Jim Rugg.

SRP: $17.99

You have unlimited funds, a jet-set lifestyle, and extraordinary abilities. So what happens when you develop a sneaking suspicion you’re working for the bad guys? Meet Eve Stranger, amnesiac for hire. Eve wakes up in a hotel room without knowing who she is or how she got there. Beside her is a teddy bear, a credit card, a briefcase of cash, a used syringe, and a letter in her own handwriting that explains her next mission. She’s living week by week, undertaking different, seemingly impossible tasks on behalf of a mystery benefactor. Her bloodstream is flooded with nanobombs, and the contents of the syringe deactivates them for one week and also wipes her memory. Because every Friday morning she wakes up with a clean slate and a new job, from black ops action/adventure hero to personal shopper, scuba treasure hunter to space station saboteur.

Eve’s latest need-to-know mission takes her to Prague, the Bohemian capital, where a giant ape is terrorizing the historic city. But that’s all right, because everyone’s favorite amnesiac-for-hire has finally scored a jetpack. As Jimmy Mac, Eve’s lovelorn clean-up crew, tries to get her attention, Eve learns that this monkey business might somehow give her answers about her forgotten past. Plus a backup feature starring Eve Stranger, social correspondent of The Convivial Times, by Liz Prince (Tomboy).

David Lapham & Maria Lapham (w) • David Lapham (a & c)

Lust, guns and revenge. As American as the wicked west. Ricky Toledo is going to find the man who killed her mother, and revenge is going to be sweet. Ricky was 15 when she fell hard for a handsome drifter who rented a room in her family home. Then he killed her mother and got her father sent to prison for it. It’s three years later, and Ricky will stop at nothing to get revenge. A broken young woman and her trusty companion—a Smith and Wesson 45 named Golddigger—track a serial killer hiding in plain sight as a travel blogger. It’s a dark, grimy game of cat and mouse through a tangled American landscape. And, like all the best crime noir, it’s a twisted love story.

Eve Stranger can do anything thanks to the nanotech that she has to inject every week to stay alive… anything except remember who she is or where she’s been. Her talents sold by the shadowy E.V.E. Project to the highest bidder, Eve’s latest mission finds her on the run in Pamplona, Spain. High-octane adventure, weird science, and doomed romance meet the jet-set in “Retrograde”!
