Barbarian Lord

“A sword untried is a sword untested,” says one raven to another as they set out to witness the fate of the finest farm in Garmrland and its owner, Barbarian Lord. When he is cheated out of his lands and banished, Barbarian Lord begins a quest for allies and for justice, encountering monsters, ghouls, gods, and mediocre poets along the way.

Combining the rich traditions of the Vikings and Nordic lore with sword-and-sorcery-and slyly understated humor-this graphic novel introduces an original hero with classic flair, brought to life in Matt Smith’s beautifully drawn, detailed, and action-filled black-and-white illustrations.

Failure, Incompetence

A comic book collection that has been out of print for five years has triumphantly returned! And here’s a book trailer for it! It’s not really all that exciting. 48 pages of good old-fashioned FUN!

Drinky Crow Drinks Again

Tony Millionaire’s Maakies is one of the longest-running and most decorated weekly comic strips in America, garnering multiple Harvey and Eisner Awards since it debuted in 1994. Drinky Crow Drinks Again collects over 200 Maakies strips from the past half-decade for the very first time! Featuring the comical high-seas adventures of a booze-soaked corvid (they don’t call him “Drinky” Crow for nothin’) and his equally-soused simian pal (Uncle Gabby), Maakies blends vaudevillestyle humor and a breathtaking line that hearkens back to the glory days of the American comic strip. Maakies suggests a contemporary collaboration between E.C. Segar, creator of Popeye, and seafaring novelist Patrick O’Brian (Master and Commander). Millionaire has won multiple Harvey and Eisner Awards and is also the creator of the popular Sock Monkey and Billy Hazelnuts books.
