POSEURS OGN
story DEBORAH VANKIN art RICK MAYS, cover RICK MAYS & LAILA DERAKHSHANIAN
An original YA graphic novel, POSEURS follows three teenagers from distinctly different corners of Los Angeles who meet in the underworld of LA nightlife and Hollywood parties — and get in over their heads. From the graffiti-tagged streets of LA’s eastside to the bloated, billion dollar mansions of Bel Air, it’s a full-blown party noir.

YESTERDAY’S TOMORROWS TP
story GRANT MORRISON, RAYMOND CHANDLER & TOM DeHAVEN with JOHN FREEMAN & CHRIS REYNOLDS, art & cover RIAN HUGHES
AN ECLECTIC AND STYLISH COLLECTION OF COMICS
FROM RIAN HUGHES, RENOWNED ILLUSTRATOR AND GRAPHIC DESIGNER. Features infamous and hard-to-find collaborations with Eisner Award winner GRANT MORRISON: Dan Dare, a post-modern classic that sets the aging and retired iconic British character Dare against a modern British landscape he no longer understands; and Really and Truly, a high-octane psychedelic road-trip torn from the pages of cult comic 2000AD. Hughes’ clean graphic style comes to the fore in duotone for The Science Service, written by JOHN FREEMAN, while Hughes explores an evocative noir palette replete with dramatic angular lighting for RAYMOND CHANDLER’s Goldfish, adapted by It’s Superman author TOM DeHAVEN. In addition to sketchbook pages, merchandise and rare stripsÑmany never seen before or out of print for over a decadeÑthe book features an introduction by comics guru PAUL GRAVETT, who published Hughes’ very first strips in his seminal independent comics magazine Escape. Features: GRANT MORRISON in DAN DARE & REALLY AND TRULY, TOM DeHAVEN in
RAYMOND CHANDLER’S GOLDFISH, JOHN FREEMAN in THE SCIENCE SERVICE, and CHRIS REYNOLDS in THE LIGHTED CITIES.
