Sometimes getting together with friends and family for Thanksgiving isn’t all that it’s cracked up to be, as Snoopy learns when his brother Spike invites him to spend Thanksgiving in the desert, and things don’t quite work out as planned. At least it’s a change of pace for Snoopy, who spends most Thanksgivings with the ol’ supper dish (and one lonely one at the malt shoppe as Joe Cool). It’s also a tense time of year to be a bird who’s afraid of being mistaken for a turkey and roasted, and Woodstock copes with his anxieties in various ways, including by donning a disguise with Snoopy’s help. Meanwhile, Peppermint Patty, Marcie, and Franklin all get sick over their Thanksgiving vacation. Snoopy’s Thanksgiving is the perfect gift book for anyone whose idea of the holiday is more Charlie Brown than Norman Rockwell.

As the leaves begin to turn shades of red and orange (or fall straight off and green depending on where you live), backpacks are dusted off in preparation for a new load of textbooks, and we move into fall, we figure you could use some cause for celebration. How about our Labor Day/Back-To-School Sale? We’ve got great titles of all-ages, young-adult, and non-fiction titles at a whopping 40% Off from Saturday, August 1st through Monday, September 1st! Check out all the titles here! 

Today is the DAY, digital readers. Megahex by Simon Hanselmann is available. This is normally where’d we make a joke about digitall rolling up a joint to go with your reading but not everyone is as lucky as Washington (where pot is smoke a-freely). SO how ‘bout instead you make some trashcan punch?

Megg is a depressed, drug-addicted witch. Mogg is her black cat. Their friend, Owl, is an anthropomorphized owl. They hang out a lot with Werewolf Jones. This may sound like a pure stoner comedy, but it transcends the genre: these characters struggle unsuccessfully to come to grips with their depression, drug use, sexuality, poverty, lack of work, lack of ambition, and their complex feelings about each other in ways that have made Megg and Mogg sensations on Hanselmann’s Girl Mountain Tumblr. This is the first collection of Hanselmann’s work, freed from its cumbersome Internet prison, and sure to be one of the most talked about graphic novels of 2014, featuring all of the “classic” Megg and Mogg episodes from the past five years as well as over 70 pages of all-new material.

These 214 joke-soaked pages are yours for only $22.99 so grab your copy of Megahex today on comiXology!  

Simon Hanselmann is the real deal, for sure. He captures that stoner stay-at-home life so accurately that I actually find his comics really depressing and thank god I don’t ever have to hang out with anybody like that ever again.” - Daniel Clowes

"Dash Shaw, it’s fair to say, is something of a genius." –Chris Ware

Praise for Shaw’s previous book

New School is about art, about the art that’s in the book itself…There’s stuff going on at other levels, the intuitive, the level of the unconscious, the subconscious I guess you could say…This book is just fascinating…[A] masterful, gorgeous and defiantly odd work that demands close attention—and richly rewards it.” –NPR’s “Best Books of 2013”

Meanwhile, on Sunday Ed Piskor has the Hip Hop Family Tree Vol. 2 - Book Launch at 5pm. Along with moderator Edward A.

Join him at Marriott Conference Center Ballroom. (130 Clairemont Ave, Decatur, GA 30030)A book signing to follow.
 
So we’ll see you, DECATUR, this weekend! 
Boy oh boy, have we got a treat for you. As a part of the Everything Is Festival series, put on by the amazing Cine Family, you can not only screen the animated version of the first Prison Pit book on Saturday, August 30th, you can hear a bunch of funny people talk about how amazing it is afterwards! Of course the indescribable author of Prison Pit, Johnny Ryan, will be there, but joining him on the panel will be comedians, Rick Shapiro and Blake Anderson. You may remember the brilliant Shapiro for his reoccuring portrayal of “the angry poet” on Conan O’Brien, and Anderson from the all-star show, Workaholics (and for having fabulous hair). 
The screening begins at 2:45 pm, and these gentelmen and scholars will all be there to help guide you through the supremely wicked and grotesque battlefield on the prison pit universe of hyperviolence and hyperhilarity. If your favorite W.W.E. personas came to life and unleashed the worst horrors on each other, you’ll be barely scratching the surface of how amazing Prison Pit, and its DVD companion are.
Both both were a huge hit at this years San Diego Comic-con, and now you can check out why the f@$k everyone is talking about the best thing since slorge-arms.
