(W) Patrick Shand (A) Renzo Rodriguez
It’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer if the villains were big pharma. Scout Turner works as a cryptozoologist, examining and cataloguing supernatural creatures for scientific purposes. When she discovers the cure for asthma in the venom of a new breed of monster, she quickly finds herself on the run from Kenilworth Pharmaceuticals and the monsters that they’ve hired to kill her. With no one by her side but her clueless assistant, a morally ambiguous succubus, and her geriatric dog, Scout goes on the run… but in a world controlled by money and drugs, can she escape the reaching claws of a medical monopoly? From Pat Shand (Destiny NY, Guardians of the Galaxy) and Renzo Rodriguez (Hellchild) comes this healthcare horror story about the monsters creeping in the dark… human or otherwise.

MR WORMWOOD GOES TO WASHINGTON HC | Preview

(W) Ben Templesmith (A/CA) Ben Templesmith
Comics’ most genteel zombie returns with his signature blend of macabre humor, hilarious horror, gore, gags (the funny kind), and gags (the trying-not-to-vomit kind). Wormwood has been gone for some time. Too long, if you were to ask his old friends. So, when a special agent from the U.S. government asked for Wormwood’s help, they were determined to track him down, no matter what dimension he’d buggered off to. Now that he’s back, things are about to get political. He and the gang are off to Washington, where, for once, his heart may be the warmest one around.

TRUE DEATH OF BILLY THE KID HC | Preview

(W) Rick Geary (A/CA) Rick Geary
One of the folk legends of the Wild West, William H. Bonney went from cowboy and gunslinger for a rancher to pure outlawry. On the one hand, he was charming, fun-loving (often at social events like dances), and quite appealing to the ladies. Also conversant in Spanish, “Billito” was popular with the Spanish speaking crowd. On the other hand, he had no compunction to coldly kill a man, a sheriff, a deputy – anyone who got in his way rustling cattle or horses for an illicit living. He also proved hard to keep in jail even when caught. It is probably his feats of derring-do escaping from jails that made him most famous and this is the main subject of this biography following him until he is shot in pitch darkness by lawmen obsessed with getting rid of him.

THE BIG LIE is a Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys mystery unlike any other you’ve ever read…

When the teenage brothers Frank and Joe Hardy are accused of the murder of their father – a detective in the small resort town of Bayport – they must team up with the femme fatale Nancy Drew to prove their innocence (and find the real guilty party in the process) in a twisting, hard-boiled tale, complete with double-crosses, deceit and dames.

Inspired by new crime classics like Ed Brubaker’s Fatale and Darwyn Cooke’s Parker series, writer Anthony Del Col (Assassin’s Creed, Kill Shakespeare) and artist Werther Dell’Edera (Batman: Detective Comics, House of Mystery) bring the iconic teen detectives into the modern age, and redefine noir for a new generation of readers!

MARS. The near future-ish. A bomb takes out a city block on Harrison Station. The media rush to blame the local terrestrials (re:aliens,) however Superintendent Denton Coyle has a feeling that it may not be so simple… or maybe that feeling is Coyle’s hangover gut bomb. It’s unclear… like a 50/50 shot, it’s a mistake or explosive diarrhea. Maybe it’s both? In other words, it’s yet another Tuesday on Mars.

Portrait of an Artist: The Life and Work of Edward Sorel
Sunday, March 19
3:00 pm
BU at 771 Commonwealth Avenue, Howard Gotlieb Memorial Gallery, 1st Floor, Boston
FREE
Speaker: Jules Feiffer

The Howard Gotlieb Archival Research Center at Boston University is proud to open “Portrait of an Artist: the Life and Work of Edward Sorel”, a retrospective exhibition devoted to the career of the celebrated cartoonist, satirist, author and illustrator. In addition to his more than 40 covers for the “The New Yorker”, Sorel’s art has appeared on the covers of “The Atlantic”, “Harper’s”, “Fortune”, “Forbes”, “The Nation”, “Esquire”, “American Heritage”, “The New York Times Magazine” and “Vanity Fair”. He has illustrated numerous children’s books, three of which he also wrote. “Unauthorized Portraits” (Knopf 1997) is the most recent of several collections of his work. His latest book, “Mary Astor’s Purple Diary: the Great American Sex Scandal of 1936”, was published in 2016 to critical acclaim. In 2001, the Art Directors Club of New York elected Sorel to their Hall of Fame; he is first cartoonist since John Held, Jr., to be so honored. Sorel’s papers are part of the holdings of the Howard Gotlieb Archival Research Center.

The opening will feature remarks by Sorel’s colleague, the satirist, cartoonist and author Jules Feiffer, best known for his 42-year career as an editorial cartoonist for The Village Voice. Sorel will sign copies of his books at the event; selected titles, including “Mary Astor’s Purple Diary”, will be available for purchase.
