The new gonzo graphic novel love letter to 90s action movies by Eisner-nominated cartoonist Kyle Starks (Sexcastle, Rick and Morty).

A betrayed murderess wants revenge. A hard drinking former cop wants his job back. For either to get what they want, they’re going to have to fight their way through fifteen flights of criminals, assassins, drug lords, murderers, yup, even accountants, and…

KILL. THEM. ALL

So the joke goes: A disgraced ex-cop, a long lost Princess-assassin walk into a highly secure building filled with Assassins looking for revenge. One wants desperately to get back on the police force even though he’s been fired. The other wants to kill her sexist ex-boyfriend and her ex-father figure for casting as a traitor for no good reason. Oh, and there’s also a cowering partner of the ex-cop who wants no part in this revenge plot.

Like a bolt from the blue, Jack’s little sister Maddy is gone―carried into another realm by an ogre.

When Jack and Lilly follow Maddy’s captor through the portal, they are ready for anything . . . except what they find waiting for them in the floating crossroads between worlds. Even the power of their magic plants may not be enough to get them back to earth alive.

Alone and injured, Jack and Lilly must each face their own monsters―as well as giants who grind the bones of human children to feed their “beast” and a fearsome goblin king in the sewers down below.

But when Jack finds himself in a tough spot, help comes from the most unlikely person: the goblin king!

Ben Hatke, the #1 New York Times–bestselling author of Zita the Spacegirl, concludes his latest middle-grade fantasy-adventure graphic novel series, Mighty Jack, with the energetic finale to his retelling of Jack and the Beanstalk.

Once upon a time, there lived a boy named Jack with his mother and his autistic little sister Maddy. One day, Jack trades his family’s car for a box of magical seeds and discovers these magic seeds grow an entire garden of plants that have hands and legs and are ready to attack. When a portal opens up and an ogre carry Maddy away into their world, it is up to Jack and their new friend Lilly to save her! (To read up on what happens before Mighty Jack and the Goblin King, go read Mighty Jack.)

In this conclusion of a modern reimagination of Jack and the Beanstalk, Jack and Lilly will have to face their own monsters—giants and a goblin king—before they can save Maddy.

SLAM • VOL. 1

In the fast-paced, hard-hitting, super cheeky, all-female world of banked track roller derby, two young women will have to decide if their budding friendship is stronger than the pull of a team when a win is on the line.

When life starts coming at you like a freight train, you have two options: run away screaming or lean into the hit.

From the first day of Fresh Meat Orientation for the Eastside Roller Girls, Jennifer and Maisie knew they’d be fast friends. But when they’re drafted to different teams, the pull of competition — and their increasingly messy personal lives — threaten to drive them apart. In roller derby you take your hits, get back up, and learn how to be a better jammer, a better blocker, a better lover, and a better friend. Derby can heal your heart . . . but it might break a bone or two in the process.

Bestselling novelist, screenwriter, and retired Los Angeles Derby Doll Pamela Ribon (Going In Circles, Why Girls Are Weird) joins artist Veronica Fish (Archie, Silk) for a tale of friendship, heartbreak, and truly epic jams. — Boom! Sudios
