|FACES FIGURES FANTASIES The Art of Thomas Haller Buchanan Signed
Signed! Introduction by W. Michael Kaluta! Highly Recommended. This new work deserves your attention. Don't just take my word for it, here's Michael Kaluta from his introduction: "If one's first encounter were put into words, perhaps we'd quote...Doctor Who, in his much more often surprised and, generally, delighted response to something new, 'Oh! Aren't you a beauty.' There is a magic effect to THB's portraiture...THB applies his knowledge, his insights, and his ability to present worlds unseen to everything he creates." PAJ, 2015...More.

|ART OF RICHARD LUONG Signed
Recommended. By Richard Luong. I am extremely fortunate to have had the opportunity to work on Cthulhu Wars. Before the project, I had worked in games as an illustrator and concept artist. My art didn't garner much attention. Cthulhu Wars launched and was a huge success. All of a sudden people took notice of my work and for the first time ever, I had fans. Krakenprint, 2016...More.

|We offered Richard's Cthulhu statue last week and, hello, it immediately sold out. Since he has a small stock and sells them well at the shows he does, we can't get any more right now. We'll encourage him to do a reissue. In the meantime, here's his very nice book of Cthulhu paintings.
|DESCANTS & CADENCES The Art of Stephanie Law Signed
Signed! Recommended. A new artist to us but one with superlative fantasy work and fine, fine technical skills. From fairies and beautiful fantasy women, to--really--the most amazing illustrations of insects such as bees and dragonflies we have seen. We can only compare this side of her work to the great E.J. Detmold, who could actually romanticize insects with his high level of skill at water color and capturing the exact moment of dynamics. Law does this also, along with excellent design and creativity.

|BELLADONNA OF SADNESS
Edited by J.C. Gabel and Jessica Hundley. A legendary cult classic, never before officially released in the United States. Complete with the film on DVD and an impressive full color book with full page art, commentary and interviews.forgotten masterpiece of Japanese anime. Loosely inspired by La Sorcière, Jules Michelet’s 1862 history of witchcraft and the occult, this tells the story of a young woman who makes a pact with the devil to exact revenge after being raped and driven from her home. This brief synopsis, however, does no justice to the visual spectacle of the film, which proceeds as a series of still images flashing onscreen. Hat & Beard Press/Cinelicious Pics, 2016.

|I'm quite impressed with this. Took it home and had a hard time putting it down and not reading the entire "Fighting Mann" story in one sitting, it's a real page-turner. Clearly written by someone who knows combat--real combat--and the men involved. I love the use of helicopters, gunboats, and those amazing American jet fighters. It's the quest of a retired Marine Colonel for his son, lost in Vietnam and victim of a conspiracy of silence because of a much larger issue at hand. Even Russia comes in as a player and on our colonel's side, no less. Beautifully drawn.
