But Reggie has secrets of his own that may affect his ability to interact with these living works of art—and he wants no part in the agency his mother ran before him. Pop culture will never be the same.

Wes Craven Coming of Rage #1 

(W) Wes Craven, Steve Niles (A/CA) Francesco Biagini
From horror icon Wes Craven, director of Scream and Nightmare On Elm Street comes his first comic book series. Wes Craven writes the series with Steve Niles, bringing two horror masters together for the first time. Says Craven: “About a year ago I had the beginning of an unwritten joke come into my head: A Vampire, a Werewolf and a Zombie walk into a bar… Just that. My imagination went crazy thinking about what could happen when three such impossibly different characters were thrown together. I met with comic book legend Steve Niles. We hit it off, and decided to work out the story of a very special young man’s coming of age, and the two unlikely friends who helped him to survive it. After a bit of hard, fun work, a series of comic books were born, telling the story of how these three ended up on the run together, and how the central character, Ritchie, lost his innocence and became one of the most powerful vampires in the world.”

Join Thompson’s alter ego Raoul Duke on the mother of all Vegas benders, as he and his attorney Dr. Gonzo cover a motorcycle race, crash a drug-enforcement convention, and rack up obscenely large room-service bills, all while dosed to the gills on a truly spectacular assortment of mind-altering substances.
Bullet points:
•    “Troy Little masterfully captures the madness and essential humor that makes this book an enduring classic.” -Darick Robertson
•    “I am super into everything about this.” -Kelly Sue DeConnick
•    “Pre-ether binge reading material. Glorious madness, as mercilessly demented as its original counterpart. The Good Doctor would look on this and raise his highball glass in hearty approval.” -John Layman

Green River Killer A True Detective Story TP
(W) Jeff Jensen (A) Jonathan Case

After twenty years, when the killer was finally captured with the help of DNA technology, Jensen spent 180 days interviewing Gary Leon Ridgway in an effort to learn his most closely held secrets-an epic confrontation with evil that proved as disturbing and surreal as can be imagined.
