      Description
      Douglas Adams' holistic detective Dirk Gently has his first two comic book adventures collected here. Containing two stand-alone series, enjoy A Spoon Too Short and The Interconnectedness of All Kings. But that's not all! Also includes bonus material showing a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the DIRK GENTLY TV show.

      In A Spoon Too Short, Dirk finds himself investigating a bizarre case of poaching, dumbstruck tourists, and the inner membranes of a rhinoceros’ nose.

      In The Interconnectedness of All Kings, Dirk has been forced to leave his beloved England behind, coming to the too-sunny, too-cheery, and altogether too-bizarre-even-for-Dirk city of San Diego, California, where he gets embroiled in three separate (or are they?) cases involving reincarnated Egyptians, golden cell phones, and copycat killers. All this in a new town seemingly incapable of making even a single proper cup of tea.

      After writing all the many and conflicting versions of the legendary Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, beloved author Douglas Adams created Dirk Gently: a detective with a belief in the fundamental interconnectedness of all things, a unique relationship with the laws of probability and physics, and a love of cats and pizza.

      Description
      In 1975 John Lennon moved to New York City, stopped being a Beatle, and started being a father. Now, experience life from Lennon’s perspective as David Foenkinos’ mesmerizing story is adapted to graphic form by Corbeyran and Horne.

      Though his life was cut tragically short in front of his home by a fan, John Lennon’s forty years on earth changed millions of lives and shaped the course of pop culture. Many know the Beatle, the activist, the man gone balmy over Yoko—but more lies beneath the surface. 

      From the imagined couch of a fictional therapist in NYC’s posh Dakota building, Lennon recounts the many joys, shortcomings, failures, and triumphs that marked this pop culture juggernaut’s rise to superstardom. Journey through an icon’s isolated homelife, prying classmates, violent behaviour and self-destructive tendencies as the building blocks of explosive creativty fall into place. 

      Nominated for a 2018 Eisner Award for Best Reality-Based Work
      Bio

      "What an incredibly cool, edgy, clever and engaging concept! Wonderfully written beautifully illustrated! The world Prince, Morazzo, and Lopes have created with The Electric Sublime had me hooked three pages in and I cannot WAIT to see where they take it. Wonderfully written and beautifully illustrated - it is now firmly at the top of my recommended reading list!" –Kevin Eastman, creator of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

      "Taking the classic notion of madness and the artist into a deadly and surreal landscape, The Electric Sublime is a fascinating and imaginative twist of perception. A literal work of art." –Troy Little, creator of Angora Napkin and the graphic novel adaptation of Hunter S. Thompson's Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

      "While this creative team's work can be called bold or even iconoclastic, the best word to describe The Electric Sublime is brilliant." –ComicWow!

      "Its surreal story and manic characters make this an exciting read. In fact, dont even think about it. Just buy the comic, get a comfy seat, strap yourself in, let reality go and enjoy the ride to the Sublime." –Big Comic Page

      Description
      Matt Chapman and Andy Suriano, two creators whose credentials include some of animation’s best-loved properties, come together for a sci-fi action bromance of galactic proportions, filtered through the lens of a ’80s music video.

      Space-fairing bachelor scalawags Love Savage and Roshambo - along with a little mothering from their ship’s AI, Mrs. Billingsley - shuttle from job to job and continually find themselves on the wrong side of the law. Despite their best efforts to look out only for themselves, they usually end up involved with alien crooks, shady black market baby schemes, and space sickness-inducing drugs. They’re on the loose and on the run - from everyone!


      Publication History: TR original
      Bio
      Originally docked in Detroit, Michigan, Andy Suriano hooked up with a circus-type, comedy/magic show when he was 18. He traveled the world performing for the next 7 years, sometimes on crazy European TV Variety shows, other times in historic Vaudevillian theatres, occasionally in front of ten thousand people, royal families, that sort of thing. The group even did a couple Fox specials here in the states way back in ’95 called The Rudy Coby Show. Andy’s specialty: walking on his hands as a two foot tall Elvis.

      An accomplished graphic artist and illustrator, Andy’s worked both in comics and animation—winning an Annie Award for his work on Samurai Jack. He has also designed on other Emmy Award winning shows like Fairly Oddparents, Star Wars: Clone Wars and a bunch of others. He has also had a few pilots in production at Cartoon Network, Warner Bros., BET and Disney respectively.
