AN AFFAIR WITH BEAUTY The Mystique of Howard Chandler Christy Romantic Illusions
Recommended. By James Philip Head. Foreword by Everett Raymond Kinstler. Fame, fortune, and beautiful models – Howard Chandler Christy had them all. He was the most famous American painter of the Jazz Age, a time when an elite brotherhood of New York artists dominated the publishing world. Christy had eclipsed all of them with his “Christy Girl,” an idealized woman who redefined beauty and influenced fashion. In Romantic Illusions, the second book in James Philip Head's trilogy, Christy tells of his early years studying art in near-poverty in New York City and his sudden ascent to stardom as the top pupil of William Merritt Chase, the premier portrait painter in America.

Beyond the wall of sleep, past the Gates of Horn and Ivory, lies the rich and fertile land where stories are born. It is called the Dreaming--and its own tale is about to take a dark and dangerous turn. Daniel, the Lord of Dreams, has abandoned his kingdom. Lucien, his faithful warden, can feel his own mind slipping away. And the other residents, from the monstrous and mercenary Dora to the gruff, unflappable Merv Pumpkinhead, are fighting among themselves to preserve what they can. But the true nightmare is yet to come. From out of the black chest of retired nightmares emerges a forgotten menace--an evil that has festered in solitary confinement for more than a century.

Outstanding New Graphic Novels from Insight

DJINN Volume 2
The seductive and erotic story, translated from the French and beautifully drawn. Highly Recommended. By Jean Dufaux. Art by Ana Miralles. Love and palace intrigue collide in this seductive adventure as two women in two different time periods find themselves entangled in a race to unearth a legendary lost treasure. In present day Turkey, Kim Nelson continues her quest that only her grandmother, Jade, had the power to find. But Kim must also submit to life as a seductress and kept woman, just as her ancestor had. However, they both possess the powers of a djinn, a witch with an implacable will.

DJINN Volume 1
Translated from the French. Our Highest Recommendation. By Jean Dufaux. Art by Ana Miralles. Kim Nelson has heard the legend of Jade, a powerful woman who was considered to be a djinn, a spirit with the ability to seduce any human heart—but Kim isn't interested in legends. She's just looking for her grandmother. Fifty years ago, Jade served the Black Sultan as part of the Imperial Harem, but Jade was no ordinary harem girl—she was the sultan's favorite. She had the power to manipulate men's and women's hearts, subtly alter their convictions, and even affect the course of an entire war. A brilliant adventure, erotic and exotic, beautifully drawn with fully formed characters and a mystery that drawns you in. Insight Comics, 2018. Mature Readers...More.

Item Code: DJIN01
Soft Cover, 8x10, 104pg, Full Color

Highly Recommended. By Dobbs. Art by Vicente Cifuentes. Death comes from the sky in this thrilling War of the Worlds graphic novel adaptation, nicely different from the other adaptions (and the recent film). Set firmly in Victorian England. Projectiles from the Red Planet begin to rain down on Earth. From the extraterrestrial capsules a tripod emerges, an immense machine of death that is soon joined by many others, with the sole intention of exterminating all life on Earth. Even knowing the story well, I found this entertaining and very, very handsomely drawn. Translated from the French. Insight Comics, 2019...More.
