2018 Preview: Coming in HOT

Sean Tonelli - Monday, February 19, 2018

Whew. 2017 was a whirlwind and 2018 shows no signs of slowing down. We are releasing what will undoubtedly be some of the best work in our 9 year history. Don’t believe me? Well, let me show you.


Available now:




DUST SHIP GLORY by Elaine M. Will


Elaine M. Will's four-part adaptation of Andreas Schroeder's 1986 novel Dustship Glory tells the story of Damanus ‘Tom’ Sukanen, a Finnish immigrant farmer who came to Canada during the economic Depression of the 1930s. Haunted by his past and devastated by the economic slump and drought conditions that laid waste to the Canadian prairies in the 1930s, Sukanen responded by building a full-sized ship in his farmyard, hundreds of miles from the sea. The complete graphic novel, Dust-Ship Glory, is now available. Will is the Xeric Award-winning Canadian author and cartoonist behind the critically acclaimed mental health drama graphic novel, Look Straight Ahead.


You can pick up a copy of Dust-Ship Glory here.



MARCH 2018




HOPE One Shot by (W) Lovern Kindzierski (A/CA) John Bolton


Writer Lovern Kindzierski and artist John Bolton return to the world of Shame. This new one shot picks up where Shame left off, but that shouldn’t stop newcomers from joining the fun. Lovern set’s the story up perfectly for diehards and newbies alike. Shame is dead, her demon father blasted back to hell. Hope, newly born into the body of a young woman, stumbles from the battle scarred castle still filled with Shame's malevolent servants. The evil queen may have been defeated, but her dark forces are determined to stamp out Hope's return to the world. This one shot story continues the acclaimed Shame series, following the ultimate story of mother-daughter conflict. In Shops: Mar 21, 2018

Faith and facts collide on a Creationist themed golf course when the daughter of a widowed creationist falls for the adopted son of a gay paleontologist.  Unbeknownst to the lovers a prehistoric dino-shark has emerged from hibernation leaving a trail of death and destruction.

A lost love, a murder, and a mountain that walks. A historical mystery set in the tragedy of the Frank Slide, one of Canada’s deadliest natural disasters. Eve Lee is in a self-destructive spiral—her big plans for a new life in Frank have not at all turned out how she had planned. As Eve hits the bottom she’s forced to confront her expectations when her former lover disappears under questionable circumstances. But is there something sinister at play or is she simply being obsessive and self-centred? And will she be able to put her past behind her before she finds herself buried under it?

Celebrate Burns Night with Robbie Burns Witch Hunter

Sean Tonelli - Thursday, January 18, 2018

It's one of our favorite times of the year. That's right, January 25th is Burns Supper! Or Burns Night or Robert Burns day, or Robbie Burns Day or whatever vernacular you wish to call it. Either way, it's a big deal.

Celebrate the birthday of one of the world's greatest poets (and witch hunters) with Robbie Burns: Witch Hunter.  The TRIPLE AWARD WINNING GRAPHIC NOVEL, 2015 Scottish Independent Book Alliance, Awards Best Graphic Novel/Best Writer/Best Newcomer. The story asks what if the events of the narrative poem Tam o' Shanter, Burns' most famous work, were actually based on something that happened to Burns himself. 

Two visionary writers from Edinburgh, Gordon Rennie and Emma Beeby, have created a new depiction of the nation's most loved poet, based on the epic character of the famous narrative poem Tam o'Shanter.  Tiernen Trevallion, one of the UK's most promising new comic artists, provides the artwork.
