Emily Hampshire and Z2 Comics Conjure Whimsical New Graphic Novel, Amelia Aierwood: Basic Witch

Z2 Comics has announced Amelia Aierwood: Basic Witch, the debut graphic novel from Schitt’s Creek12 Monkeys, and Chapelwaite actress Emily Hampshire

The book blends millennial homebody ennui with wand-waving delight in the story of Amelia, the least-favorite daughter of L.A.’s most famous family of witches—the Aierwoods (think the Kardashians of the witch world). She’s a so-so spellcaster who would rather eat Pop-Tarts while listening to murder podcasts than be a reality TV star.

Emily joins co-writer Eliot Rahal and artists Kristen Gudsnuk and Ames Liu for supernatural arrested development that combines medium magic and big heart.

While Amelia’s sisters have all followed in the footsteps of her prominent parents, everything she does is just a little…off-brand. A late bloomer who has yet to find her calling, Amelia uses her powers for mostly mundane things, but even those lead to magical misfires, e.g. the unfashionable witch’s hat that’s permanently stuck to her head.

As her family’s fame continues to rise, they have no choice but to exclude their bumbling black sheep daughter from the next great chapter of the Aierwoods: reality TV! With the help of her adopted brother Spaghetti—who she accidentally turned into a yeti… long story—Amelia must carve her own path outside of her family’s influence.

Inspired by the social distancing-fueled solitude of the past two years and filtered through Emily’s charming lyricism, Amelia Aierwood: Basic Witch is a character-grounded tome of magical realism that could only be written in this day and age.

Amelia Aierwood: Basic Witch is available in both softcover and hardcover formats, as well as oversized hardcover deluxe, and an oversized hardcover deluxe edition hand-signed by Emily Hampshire. Caitlin Rose Boyle and Ames Liu provide cover art. Deluxe editions including gallery-ready prints courtesy Kristen GudsnukCara McGee, and Dominique Roses, as well enamel pins and an Amelia Aierwood lunchbox with art from Fred Stressing.

Further embracing the podcast’s marriage of the sinister and silly, deluxe editions of The Last Comic Book on the Left will also come bundled with a series of prints, revolving around suspiciously erotic cryptids and other spooky surrealism. Artists and subjects include: 

  • Ian McGinty, Detective Popcorn

  • Norzine, Aum Shinrikyo

CHILLING ADVENTURES IN SORCERY #1 (ONE SHOT)

Z2 Comics and Cheech and Chong Partner for a 50th Anniversary Graphic Novel

Z2 Comics is teaming with the comedy duo known affectionately as Cheech and Chong for Cheech and Chong’s Chronicles! Co-written by the two comedy geniuses themselves, their first graphic novel is guaranteed to earn its place alongside such beloved classics as their 1978 film and album “Up in Smoke.”

Totally broke and out of weed, the world’s most iconic stoners–Cheech and Chong–are in a bad way. That is… until they get a call that changes their lives. Cheech’s old friend, a casino manager in Reno needs an emergency opening act for his rock show. If they can make it, the job is theirs. But what begins as a classic American road trip to score a**, grass and cash quickly morphs into a reefer-fueled toke through time in Cheech & Chong’s Chronicles: A Brief History of Weed. This original graphic novel from Z2 Comics is the “real” history of cannabis seen through the bloodshot eyes of the legendary comedy duo, Cheech & Chong.

Released in time for the celebration of the duo’s 50th anniversary of performing together as Cheech and Chong, looking back through the history of cannabis and their own place in it, Cheech & Chong’s Chronicles: A Brief History of Weed is a fictionalized history documenting marijuana’s “influence” on significant people and events throughout time for a collection of hilariously hazy memories and half-truths as told by the masters themselves in partnership with comedian and comics writer Eliot Rahal and artist Noah Van Sciver, with additional artwork from Bob Fingerman, Rick Veitch, Jim Mahfood, and Jason Gonzalez

Cheech and Chong’s Chronicles: A Brief History of Weed will be released in a soft and hardcover edition in finer comic shops and bookstores alike on April 20, 2021 and is also available to preorder now in these and a gorgeous, oversized slipcase deluxe format wraparound cover art by Bob Fingerman, as well as a matching slipmat, a gorgeous print set featuring work from Rick VeitchJim Mahfood and Jason Gonzalez! A third and hyper-limited platinum edition will also be available in a one-time signed edition with special packaging!

Madam Satan is back in this preview of Chilling Adventures in Sorcery #1!

Madam Satan will play tour guide as readers explore the horrifying underbelly of Riverdale while the classic Archie Comics characters face their deepest fears, along with some frightful bonus content Archie horror fans will absolutely die for.

Each new circle of Hell Madam Satan enters during her escape features another horror-fueled tale starring beloved Riverdale characters and filled with fun nods to fan-favorite horror titles including The Twilight ZoneEvil Dead 2, and Five Nights at Freddy’s. In addition to Rahal returning to continue Madam Satan’s adventure, the anthology features talented work by Vincenzo Federici, Evan Stanley, Amy Chu, Derek Charm, and Pat and Tim Kennedy spearheaded by Rotante.

Review: Slay Bells

Slay Bells might not be the most original story but it’s still really entertaining. Add in a B-side that’s just weird and high price point and this is one that’s good but debatable if it’s worth the price.
