The Dumbest Idea Ever!

By Jimmy Gownley

Publisher: Graphix

Jimmy Gownley’s graphic novel memoir about the “dumb” idea that changed his life forever!

What if the dumbest idea ever changed your life forever?

At thirteen, Jimmy was popular, at the top of his class, and the leading scorer on his basketball team. But all that changed when chicken pox forced him to miss the championship game. Then things went from bad to worse when he got pneumonia and missed even more school. Before Jimmy knew it, his grades were sinking and nothing seemed to be going right.

How would Jimmy turn things around, get back on top at school, and maybe even get a date with the cutest girl in school?

Renowned comics creator Jimmy Gownley shares his adventures as he grows from an eager-to-please boy into a teenage comic book artist and how the DUMBEST idea ever actually became the BEST thing that ever happened to him.

The Boy in Question

By Michael DeForge

Publisher: Space Face

Always important to keep the DeForge stock well-maintained. Here’s his newest (at time of writing 7/12/13). You ever notice how sick Mike’s text layout skills are? Always what hooks me in for these titles. And of course, the insides have characters the likes of which can’t be found in anyone else’s weirdest fever dreams.

This particular story is about two soldiers awaiting backup. As you can imagine, things escalate quickly. Hilarious.

Very Casual

By Michael Deforge

Publisher: Koyama Press

Spring 2013 will bring a double dose of DeForge starting with Very Casual. Culled from mini comics, online comics and anthology contributions, Very Casual collects notable short stories from DeForge’s prolific oeuvre. Included are stories about litter gangs, meat-filled snowmen, righteous cops, beagle/human hybrids, and forest-bound drag queens. Very Casual also collects Spotting Deer, which won the Pigskin Peters Award for best non-traditional, non-narrative or avant-garde work at the 2011 Doug Wright Awards.
