Gothic imagery and Lovecraftian nightmares are at the heart of the graphic novel, Hopeless, Maine. It is a story about isolation and loss, magic and demons, and how the two are inexorably intertwined. Originally a webcomic, Hopeless, Maine is now available in print.
Announced a year ago, August 14 will see the release of Idle Days from publisher First Second Books. The brainchild of writer Thomas Desaulniers-Brousseau and artist Simon LeClerc, the story is about a young Canadian man, Jerome, who refused to serve his country in combat during World War II. Staying out of sight, he takes up residence with his none-too-talkative grandfather in a forest house with a dubious past. The cover conveys tension as all eyes – Jerome, cat, dog, house and skull – are staring at the reader. The cover is not short on symbolism, as each item derives its meaning as the story unfolds.

As we venture further into summer, with San Diego Comic-Con 2018 in our rear-view mirror, it’s perhaps a perfect opportunity to get in the car with our kids and see the sights, and in this case, some things you won’t normally find anywhere else. As a child, I was fascinated by things that were larger-than-life and the idea of seeing a Guinness World Record (GWR) was always exciting to discover in the news.
If you think a cross-country roadtrip with your relatives sounds like a nightmare, just be grateful your relatives are not the anthropomorphised animal mutants Bebop and Rocksteady. After reading up on their mayhemic hijinks, you will likely never complain about roadtripping ever again. TMNT: Bebop & Rocksteady Hit the Road takes two ancillary characters from the Turtleverse (I'm trying to make this a thing.) and milks them for all of their ballistic glory. The book abounds with bullet-filled fun with enough carnage to spare.
