New Release Pick of the Week for 10/31/2018

Wytches Bad Egg Halloween Special

Wytches Bad Egg Halloween Special

Image Comics

(W) Scott Snyder (A) Jock
“BAD EGG” Serving as both a stand-alone story in the WYTCHES world and a prequel to the highly anticipated WYTCHES, VOL. 2, “BAD EGG” tells the story of Seb and Jackson—two innocent teenagers reared on opposite sides of the eternal struggle between good and evil. Sebastian’s mother is a member of “The Irons,” the most ruthless Wytch hunters in history, while Jackson’s family are “High Horn” Wytches. Can these two boys find friendship amidst this age-old blood feud, or are their fates already sealed? Collecting the entire IMAGE+ magazine run and, for the first time, the 13-page, pulse-pounding conclusion plus extra materials, WYTCHES: BAD EGG reunites the Eisner-award winning duo of SCOTT SNYDER and JOCK in a horror-filled romp just in time for Halloween!

Mature Readers

$7.99

2 PM – 3 PM

A new Lumberjanes graphic novel is arriving, by our friend Lilah Sturges! Join us this week to pick up your copy and get it signed by the author, but that’s not all! Scour the store to track down the Lumberjanes and earn your badge, pick up some fun treats, and read a part of the new book with Lilah herself!

Eisner Award-nominated writer Lilah Sturges (Fables, Thor: Season One) teams with artist polterink (Enough Space for Everyone Else ) for the first Lumberjanes graphic novel in a story about finding your way and navigating life, love, and a literal forest.

When the ‘Janes start to become separated during an orienteering outing thanks to a mysterious compass, Molly becomes more and more insecure about the effect of her relationship with Mal on the other girls.

Meanwhile, a lonely woman explorer is trying to steal the compass, with the help of some weirdly polite automaton butlers.
