Book of the Week

Stranger Than Life: Cartoons and Comics 1970-2013 by M.K. Brown

One of the funniest cartoonists of the last four decades, M.K. Brown has accumulated a body of work long savored by aficionados but never comprehensively collected — until now. Stranger Than Life is the first retrospective collection of Brown’s cartoons and comic strips from the National Lampoon from 1972-1981, as well as such other magazines as Mother Jones, The New Yorker, Atlantic Monthly, and Playboy; and her comics from underground publications like Arcade, Wimmin’s Comics, Young Lust, and Twisted Sisters. Brown satirizes suburban anxiety and ennui by turning it upside-down and sideways, and her slightly grotesque yet lovable characters are perfectly captured in her restless pen line and delicate jewel-tone watercolors.

Amazing Agent Luna Omnibus 4 (vol. 8 & 9) TP, co-written by Christina Weir, art by Shiei

Luna’s control agent, Jennifer Kajiwara, is given an ultimatum by her superiors at the Agency. If Luna fails in her newest mission, Project Luna will be terminated - permanently. As Luna delves deeper into the shadowy organization known as Knightfall, what she learns may not only derail her mission, but it could tear apart her makeshift family, and send her down a dark path from which she may never return. This omnibus edition collects Volumes 8 and 9 of Amazing Agent Luna, Seven Seas’ premier shoujo manga series that blends high school romance with super spy action. It directly ties in with events that occurred in the two-volume Amazing Agent Jennifer prequel, but can be read independently.

The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger - The Battle of Tull TP, co-written by Robin Furth

Roland Deschain, last of the gunslingers, continues searching for the Man in Black. Instead, he finds Tull, last stop of civilization - a town of devil grass, desert sand and despair. A town of lost souls, including Allie, the once-pretty barmaid whose encounter with the Man in Black left her saddled with a fearsome, cursed secret. Tull may seem to be on the very edge of the world, with nothing past the horizon but a steep fall to oblivion, but Roland believes otherwise: that beyond Tull lies a hidden truth that means everything to the fate of Mid-World. The Man in Black holds the key to that mystery, and Roland is going to keep following him - even through a trap set in Tull - to unlock it. Collecting DARK TOWER: THE GUNSLINGER - THE BATTLE OF TULL #1-5.

IDW Snags My Little Pony License, Katie Cook to Write
No surprise that someone’s bringing out MLP comics, I just can’t believe it took so long. However, I suspect there was quite the competition for the license. I hope they follow Boom’s Adventure Time example and invite various artists to variant covers and back-ups. (I need to see an Elena Barbarich pony comic, you guys.)
