New Releases

Pusheen the Cat's Guide to Everything cover

Pusheen the Cat’s Guide to Everything by Claire Belton

You’d be hard-pressed to find a cuter cat in comics than Pusheen! In this latest collection, Pusheen will teach you how to be lazy, how to fit in(to boxes and bowls), how to do arts and crafts, and so much more!

Helck Vol 1 cover

Helck Volume One by Nanaki Nanao

In the mood to try a new manga this new year? Join Helck on his quest to win a competition to become the new Demon Lord — despite being a human, and despite the fact that certain demons are not pleased at the prospect of being ruled by him! One thing is for sure: human-demon relations will never be the same…and they weren’t all that great to begin with.

Riot Recommendations

Today’s Riot Rec theme is: climate change. It’s real, it’s happening now, and these two comics use it as a backdrop for some thoughtful, exciting stories.

Rewild cover

Rewild by Devin Grayson and Yana Adamovic

If fairies existed, what would they think of the way humankind has brought the world to the brink of disaster? The answer, according to Rewild, is “not well.” Demond, an ordinary human, finds himself tasked with building a new park to shelter the angry fae. Will his efforts be enough to appease the fae and save his city?

Eve cover

Eve by Victor LaValle and Jo Mi-Gyeong

With the world all but destroyed by climate change, young Eve was raised in a virtual reality that shielded her from the much less pleasant real world. But then she snaps out of it and must embark on a journey to rescue her father — and, in the process, learn about the world she has never had a chance to be a part of.
