We're pleased to announce a fantastic assortment of brand new books from the fine folks at TOPATOCO, publisher of great webcomics collections. And remember, we're having the awesome official launch party for the Dinosaur Comics book tomorrow night...!
Finally, a Dinosaur Comics book, unabridged and in full colour, AND with all three secret texts for each comic included! And it's so pretty, you guys. So pretty. Featuring an introduction by Randall Munroe of XKCD and an all-new index written by Ryan that includes, among other things, the 11 different types of makeouts referenced by T-Rex, this book is great. It gets greater: there's also an interview with the author AND a photo of Michael "Worf" Dorn. You know that you've always wanted these extras collected in one book, maybe with hundreds of Dinosaur Comics in the book too. THAT DREAM HAS NOW COME TRUE, and it's called "Dinosaur Comics: Dudes Already Know About Chickens".
You've been asking for it for years, and now it's finally a reality! The very first print collection of Questionable Content, that is. Not approval from your parents. Sorry. We can't help with that. Unless they're QC fans? Then...then you could buy them this book? ANYWAY WE ARE GETTING OFF TRACK. QC Volume 1 collects the first 300 strips in dazzling full color, with commentary on each strip, a bonus minicomic in the back, and MORE!
This collection of early Beartato comics features:Digitally Remastered Super-HD Graphics! Ultraphonic Stereo Surround Sound! Freshly-redrawn comics, illustrations, sketches, and the short story "Hey, Nickname!" previously available only in minicomic form. Plus, we were lying about the surround sound. Perfect for a gift or for keeping all to yourself!
Overcompensating is the almost 100% true journal comic of cowboy-poet/hacker/CEO/amateur electrician Jeffrey Rowland, who happens to harbor a seething disdain for reality. There is a person in it called Weedmaster P and a green cat that is maybe a zombie. This book contains an introduction by Andrew WK and over 17,000 words of brand-new commentary by the author!
Troubled by gangster rodents, lovesick vampire stalkers, or confused ninja assassins? Don't panic! Sam and Fuzzy are here to help, and no problem is too weird. This 368-page monster collects the entirety of Sam and Fuzzy Fix Your Problem -- the first chapter of a brand new epic!
SUCCESSFUL POLITICAL NEGOTIATION! Problem Sleuth has penned an accord among the four kingdoms. Parades choke rural hamlets. Statues erect. Peace prevails. Volume 2 contains chapters 6 through 9. The suckle chalice of complete bullsh-t runneth over. "Foreword" by Andrew Hussie.
The Excessively Authentic Dresden Codak 2010 Sketchbooks are here! They contain trade secrets, behind-the-scenes processes of the comic, and all of Aaron's daily drawings and speed paintings of the past year! You'll wonder how you ever lived without one.
Bake-N-Bake Apron, by Meredith Gran. $16.00
This is not a book. It's an apron, for people who make special brownies, special cookies, and special baked goods of all stripes. It's basically the best last-minute gift for a certain someone on your list....
Also, we've restocked the following books:
Never Learn Anything From History, by Kate Beaton
Dr. McNinja Volume 1-3, by Chris Hastings
