PUCK: What Fools These Mortals Be!
Michael Alexander Kahn, Richard Samuel West (w)
Various (a)
Joseph Keppler (c)

A lavish coffee table book devoted to the most important political satire and cartoon magazine in American history. Published from 1877 to 1918, Puck was regularly a major political battleground and is credited with single-handedly thwarting the third-term ambitions of Ulysses Grant in 1880 and electing Grover Cleveland to the presidency in 1884.

Puck did it with art–lavish, color, full-page and two-page center-spread cartoons. It was the first American magazine to publish color lithographs on a weekly basis and, for nearly forty years, was a training ground and showcase for some of the country’s most talented cartoonists, led by its co-founder, Joseph Keppler. This retrospective contains nearly 300 full-color plates.


Rogue Trooper Classics #6 (of 8)
Gerry Finley-Day (w)
Brett Ewins, Eric Bradbury, Cam Kennedy, Colin Wilson (a)

Tristan Jones (a & c)

IDW returns to Konami’s horror masterpiece! Vengeful prison guard Anne Marie Cunningham continues her terrifying trek through the cursed streets of Silent Hill… and through her own horrific memories!

The Squidder #4 (of 4)
Ben Templesmith (w & a & c)

The final chapter. You can't keep a good squid down. Well, maybe you can—it's one last shot for humanity and, as it turns out, possibly the entire universe. This is either the end or a new beginning, and only the Squidder himself can decide.

When a blue-collar worker from New Jersey passes prophetic messages to the FBI from a mysterious “Mr. Zero,” Mulder is convinced it is the same otherworldly entity that contacted the FBI through a suburban housewife in the 1940s. This similarly named “Mr. Xero” pointed the FBI toward many unusual cases, leading to the establishment of “the X-Files”!
