Graphic Novels and Trade Paperbacks
Mere by CF $19.95 – In 2012 C.F. began to produce a series of more than a dozen mini-comics, which he distributed via Twitter. Each mini-comic offered a take on, and expansion upon, a classic comic strip genre-from crime and sci-fi to punk and sex-all of them infused throughout by C.F.’s absurdist humor and loose improvisatory drawing. Those comics, along with unpublished art and photos, are collected here. Introduction by Nicole Rudick.

Henry & Glenn Forever & Ever & Ever #2 by Igloo Tornado {Josh Bayer, Tom Neely, Mark Rudolph} (Microcosm Publishing) $5.00 – In the latest installment of the greatest love story ever told, Glenn’s mother, freshly unearthed from beneath the bricks, moves in with him and Henry. Without giving too much away, Glenn’s mommy issues come to the surface as she critiques his art, replaces his wardrobe, scrubs their dungeon, and recalls his childhood. Glenn tries to sell his signature to a UPS driver, takes a punch, and has some daydreaming adventures with a plunger. Henry, “a loud guy with a good work ethic,” shows his darker side and indifference to a fan as he drinks black coffee and bonds with Glenn over their distaste for their own bands; two men who suffer best alone together. Additional pin up art by Andy Belanger, Katie Skelly, and Tom Scioli. Darkest and best issue yet. Plus! We have more H&D sticker sets for 5 bucks too. Lucky you.
