The Trigan Empire


Our Highest Recommendation. By Mike Butterworth. Art by Don Lawrence and Ron Embleton. The legendary comics novel with artwork by two of Britain's finest creators. You don't want to miss this! The second thrilling omnibus lost Sci-Fi classic from the sixties the New York times called “highly detailed visions of fantastic worlds.” Among the distant stars, fractious tribes come together to found a mighty empire that will wage war against aggressive kingdoms, battle alien invaders, and conceive of incredible new technologies.

Graphic Novels


Highly Recommended. Japan's enduring national legend comes to comics, by Dark Horse founder Mike Richardson and Usagi Yojimbo's own Stan Sakai. The tale of these samurai and their epic mission to avenge their wronged master is the story of Japan. Opening with the tragic incident that sealed the fate of Lord Asano, 47 Ronin follows a dedicated group of his vassals on their years-long path of vengeance! This epitomizes the samurai code of honor and a sweeping saga "of duty and duress in all its violent grandeur." Meticulously researched and illustrated. Plus a cover gallery, bonus art and behind-the-scenes extras.Dark Horse, 2021....More.

WOLVERINE By Frank Cho Savage Land
Collects #1-5, 2013. Highly Recommended. Superbly drawn, cover to cover! And a fun, offbeat story. Wolverine awakens to find himself in the Savage Land — and labeled Public Enemy #1! With no memory of how he got there and Shanna the She-Devil his only ally, Logan must unravel the mystery of the Savage Land before it kills him! The ferocious duo venture into the depths of the Forbidden Island, where they face a brutal gauntlet of battles with the island natives, wild dinosaurs, giant apes and a deadly threat from another world. When The Hulk crash-lands on the island, he just might turn the tide of the battle — but is he friend or foe? Marvel, 2021....More.

Conceived as a colorful contrast to the dark lead stories starring Batman, Manhunter was adventurer Paul Kirk, who criss-crossed the globe in an espionage caper, with the mysterious Council that trained him in pursuit. The story culminated in a team-up with Batman and a explosive end for Manhunter. This brief but fast-paced epic won two Shazam! Awards, the 1970s equivalent of today's Eisner Awards.

News & Notes


S. Clay Wilson

S. Clay Wilson passed away on the 7th, after several years of health issues. Wilson of course was one of the original Zap creators, possibly the most outrageous (even considering Crumb!) with his Checkered Demon, Captain Piss-Gums and others. "Wilson attracted attention from readers with aggressively violent and sexually explicit panoramas of lowlife denizens, often depicting the wild escapades of pirates and bikers." He was born in 1941, and lived primarily in urban San Francisco, where the underground comics movement first began in 1967.

Flesk News

Coming in March! Carbon 4 and Xenozoic by Mark Schultz and Al Williamson Strange World Adventures are printed and making the journey through the congested ports. We will have them next month, in March. The special publisher editions were only available to us as a one-shot, and we've taken orders for about half of our allotment. Once they come in, I don't expect them to last for longer than a few weeks. The trade editions will remain available as long as they stay in print from Flesk, but they have sold out several books lately, including Spectrum 27.

Other new books: Covenant: The Art of Allen Williams is nearly done and will be sent to the printer this month. The Drawings of Edwin Austin Abbey is at the printer and will be available to order soon. The original Naughty and Nice collection by Bruce Timm will be reprinted this fall. A revised edition of Franklin Booth: Painter With a Pen with an extra 100 pages is in the works. Plus, new books coming on Arthur Adams, Frank Cho, Gary Gianni, J.A.W. Cooper and William Stout! We'll announce each as soon as we can.
