Of Bitter Souls: 400-Page Omnibus by Chuck Satterlee
A collection of all issues, art, covers & more of the acclaimed series, drawn by legendary Batman artist Norm Breyfogle.
Four people from different walks of life, all of whom are either criminals or trapped in an unforgiving and unfortunate life… are literally erased by a mysterious Pastor named Secord. Secord, a harsh taskmaster, endows the quartet with powers that are directly related to each team member’s worst character flaw. Winston Fontenot is a dirty, violent, murderous cop with a terrible temper. He is given incredible super human strength. A gangbanging drug addict named George is given the power to shapeshift and become whomever he wants to be. Lynette Story, an addicted gambler and con artist is given the ability to turn back time 13 seconds. A young woman named Magz, a woman who has been trapped in human trafficking and the sex trade, is given the power to control minds after not having had any control for years. Together, these four “BITTER SOULS” are brought together to deal with the ghosts and spirits so prevalent in their home town of New Orleans, Louisiana. The stories are pulled straight from actual myths and ghost stories from the bayou.

Gritty anime protagonist, Lady Vengeance, comes to life and falls in love with a high school cheerleader.

Issue 2 will see Yuriko and her future girlfriend, Lucy, get to know each other better as Yuriko adjusts to the freedom and uncertainty of real life.

The story takes place in the future and sees an older Yuriko and Lucy celebrating their anniversary!
Giantess: A Graphic Novel About Self-Discovery by JC Deveney & Nuria Tamarit
A giant girl’s growing pains are explored in this beautiful graphic novel.
A farmer finds a baby abandoned in the middle of the valley, but this is no normal baby… it is already the size of his horse cart! How can something so big be so helpless? Taking the giant child in, his wife and sons welcome the new addition to the family, whom they name Celeste. Raising a giant won’t be easy but growing up is fraught with its own challenges no matter your size… Author JC Deveney and illustrator Nuria Tamarit weave a super-sized coming-of-age fairy tale about the pains and woes of becoming a woman, scaled to giant proportion. Through many adventures and misadventures, Celeste learns to embrace her uniqueness and follow her own path, despite what society might expect from her.
The Color Guard: The Collected Edition by Ryan Little
A humiliated flag girl must conquer her shame and carry her banner high to defeat a mysterious evil.
The Color Guard is an all-ages adventure book about magic, flag twirling and, most importantly, shame. It can be hard to proudly carry the banner for the things you care about. That’s why I made a book all about the struggle of facing shame. This series is an adventure with magic, comedy, and some epic battle manga action sequences. But at its core, it’s all about standing up for whatever you believe in.
The hero falls off a building. We enter his subconscious mind and join him for the trip down.
Head First starts in the real world, but we soon enter the surreal universe of the subconscious mind — and the phantasmagorical dreamscape of Subconscious Comics. You may recognize this parallel reality if you’ve seen the comic strip. The settings and cast of characters in this universe all come from those 20 years of comic strips. But those strange creatures never had a story like this to stretch out in. And they can do it in full, dreamworld color! I have been obsessing about this tale ever since the strip went dormant, and now it’s ready to fly. But why take my word for it?

Nine years ago, you helped us kickstart our independent movie LUMPIA WITH A VENGEANCE, which won the Audience Award for best Narrative Feature at the Hawai’i International Film Festival and is currently selling out screenings on its film festival tour. Then you helped us again by greenlighting our comic book series. Now with your support, we want to create our next spin-off comic book series: THE LEGENDARY LUMPIA SQUAD! This standard size 24-page comic book will revolve around the new super hero team introduced in the film.
Resist Now! Volume 1 by Eliza Wolfson & Lizah van der Aart
A sci-fi comic anthology about superbugs. A mad mashup of monsters, aliens, science and fantasy!
Ever wondered what it would be like if… Superbugs were as tall as buildings? You could kill space invaders with 8-bit chemistry? Bacteria went on a quest to harness the fantastical powers of gemstones? No? Resist NOW is going to be a 40+ page A5 comic book with at least three different short sci-fi comics inspired by superbugs. Superbugs are microbes that change over time and no longer respond to medicines. The World Health Organization says it’s one of the biggest threats facing humanity. YAY. But rather than focusing on the doom and gloom of this looming problem… We would like to show you that there is a lot to be hopeful about!
