Critically acclaimed writer DONNY CATES (GOD COUNTRY) and artist LISANDRO ESTHERREN serve up the tale of a DIFFERENT kind of family just trying to get by, deep in the heart of Texas.
On Wednesday, March 29th, we will be joined by artist Val Mayerik and Jim Berry for a signing of their new hardcover graphic novel about the Battle of Little Big Horn, Of Dust and Blood. The graphic novel is not yet available to the direct market, so this is a wonderful opportunity to get it early, and get it signed by both the artist and writer!
About Of Dust and Blood:
OF DUST AND BLOOD: A Story from Custer’s Fight at The Greasy Grass, is an original graphic novel from writer Jim Berry and veteran illustrator Val Mayerik. The story details the day of The Battle At The Little Big Horn through the eyes of Greenhaw, a 7th Cavalry scout on one side of the battlefield, and Slowhawk, a young Lakota warrior on the other.
The book focuses on a compelling drama while also being as historically accurate as possible via quotes and documented actions on every page. There will be featured appearances by the famous protagonists of the day – G.A. Custer, Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse – but we’ve chosen to focus on two fictional characters, and use them as lenses to show what it might have been like on that hot afternoon in 1876 for two ordinary men pressed into battle.
We’re thrilled to announce artist Cliff Chiang will be dropping in for a signing at the end of April! There will be more details soon, but we wanted to get out word about this awesome event as soon as possible.

The sequel to the critically acclaimed, best-selling graphic novel Richard Castle’s Deadly Storm! In this “adaptation” of Derrick Storm’s second novel, the private investigator is hired to bug an African head of state’s hotel suite – but the routine mission quickly spirals out of control when Storm overhears a woman’s terrifying scream on the wire. Plagued by the victim’s helpless cry, Storm – despite an ominous warning – investigates. Soon, he’ll discover an international conspiracy reaching further than he ever imagined – and perhaps the truth about Clara Strike, a CIA agent the world thinks is dead! RICHARD CASTLE’S STORM SEASON reunites the lauded writing duo of Brian Michael Bendis and Kelly Sue DeConnick for their second Castle story, and the dynamic artwork of rising star Emanuela Lupacchino (X-Factor) brings the world of Derrick Storm to life like never before.
