Night Hunters Gets Collected in November

This November, Alexis Ziritt and Dave Baker‘s Night Hunters gets collected in a trade paperback. The release features all four issues of the sold-out cyberpunk hit!

If you want to live in Gran Caracas you have two options: become a cop or die.

Night Hunters is a pulsing cyberpunk classic that tells the tale of two brothers who have to navigate the futuristic dystopian world of Venezuela, 100 years in the future.

How far would you go for your family? Would you enlist in a corrupt police department and slowly sell your body-parts for cyborg replacements so that your aging father can have a roof over his head? The only answer is pick up your gun and put one foot in front of the other.

This sci-fi epic by indie comics all-stars Alexis Ziritt and Dave Baker combines the political sharpness of Paul Verhoeven and the bleak sense of humor of Judge Dredd. If you’re on the search for the next great genre must-read this combination of Robocop and Blade Runner is definitely what you want.

Vulnerability is My Superpower Gets a Live Virtual Event April 6 with Jackie Davis

By being her anxious, honest, and just plain silly self, Jackie Davis’ potato-shaped character proves that, even though opening up to others is scary at first, vulnerability can be a superpower.

Vulnerability Is My Superpower features Jackie Davis’s relatable diary comics about self-discovery, mental health, relationships, and childhood. From bouts with anxiety and insecurity to the thrill of simple pleasures like secretly trying other people’s coats on at a party, she’s figuring things out as she goes along, navigating domestic life with her husband, Pat (aka “the Purple Guy”), and sharing her most embarrassing thoughts and habits so you don’t have to.

Like a soft plushie for your brain to hug, this collection is for anyone who struggles with self-confidence or just likes to scrutinize the curious workings of relationships, routine, and why we do the things we do.  

PREORDER Vulnerability Is My Superpower to receive a bookplate signed by Jackie Davis and an invite to the virtual release party on Tuesday, April 6, 6 pm PST.

I Never Promised You A Rose Garden Gets a Virtual Book Launch on March 23

I Never Promised You A Rose Garden

Portland artist Mannie Murphy is celebrating the release of their new graphic memoir/history, I Never Promised You A Rose Garden with a virtual book launch on March 23.

Mannie is joined in conversation by special guest Steve Bissette to discuss the new book. Told in the style of an illustrated diary, I Never Promised You A Rose Garden begins as an affectionate reminiscence of the author’s 1990s teenage infatuation with the late actor River Phoenix but morphs into a remarkable, sprawling account of the city of Portland and state of Oregon’s dark history of white nationalism.

Murphy details the relationship between white supremacist Tom Metzger (former KKK Grand Wizard and founder of the White Aryan Resistance) and the “Rose City” street kids like Ken Death that infiltrated Van Sant’s films — a relationship that culminates in an infamous episode of Geraldo.

Murphy brilliantly weaves 1990s alternative culture, from Kurt Cobain and William Burroughs to Keanu Reeves and the Red Hot Chili Peppers, with two centuries of the Pacific Northwest’s shameful history as a hotbed for white nationalism: from the Whitman massacre in 1847 and the Ku Klux Klan’s role in Portland’s city planning in the early 1900s to the brutal treatment of Black people displaced in the 1948 Vanport flood and through the 2014 armed standoff with Cliven Bundy’s cattle ranch.

In Murphy’s personal reflections and heart-racing descriptions of scenes like infamous campfire kiss in My Own Private Idaho, the artist’s story becomes a moral anchor to a deeply amoral regional history and marks the incredible debut of a talented new voice to the graphic medium.
