A celebrated send-up of gothic literature, beautifully adapted into a dark, brooding, and oddly comical graphic novel. Somewhere in the night, a raven caws, an author's pen scratches, and thunder claps. The author wants to write fiction: stories about frail women in white nightgowns, mysterious bumps in the night, and the undead rising to collect old debts.

Spiral Bound

Author: Aaron Renier
Publisher: Top Shelf Productions
ISBN: 9781603091176
Release Date: 2005
Genre: Juvenile Fiction

Winner of the Eisner Award for Talent Deserving Wider Recognition. "Top Shelf has a real winner with Aaron Renier's delightful, action-packed graphic novel for all ages. Innocence and naivet_ dominate the character traits of the cast of cute, anthropomorphic characters while the meaning of friendship and loyalty is explored. The fast-paced tale unfolds through detailed illustrations on pages meant to resemble lined, spiral notebook paper, hence the title. The main characters are Turnip, an insecure little elephant; Stucky, a confident, friendly hound; Ana, an aspiring, investigative bunny reporter; and Emily, the clever little bird photographer experiencing self-discovery. They tap into their own creativity and resourcefulness, but they also learn of the destructive power of too much ambition. Spiral-Bound is entertaining without being didactic and is highly recommended for all youth graphic novel collections within public and school libraries. Even adult readers will identify with the angst experienced by the loveable characters and celebrate the happy resolution of the mystery."-- Jeannine Wiese, Ingram Library Services "Brilliant! Aaron Renier has created a playfully mysterious universe, complete with its own dreamlike logic. It's a delightfully inventive treasure."-- Dav Pilkey, Author of Captain Underpants "Aaron Renier's Spiral-Bound is exactly the sort of novel I have been looking for when the weather outside is glum and I want to spend the afternoon on my couch with Nico on the stereo and a pot of toasted rice tea simmering on the end table. If you want anything more from a graphic novel than a noble elephant, a shadowy mystery, an intrepid bird, an underwater monster, an impeccable rabbit, an underground tram, a devoted dog, an aquatic sculptor, a corrupt mayor, a maze of secrets, a secret maze and not one but two performances by my new favorite musical ensemble Kodiak & Calico, you should be ashamed of yourself."-- Lemony Snicket "Spiral-Bound is a lush magical landscape. It rekindles the quintessential childhood experience -- of exploring a mysterious new neighborhood street, or cozying up in a favorite tree-fort or secret hangout -- and revels in the details. It reminds us of the joy of discovery, and of finding oneself."-- Craig Thompson, Creator of Blankets "Has another graphic novelist sprung fully armed from the head of Zeus? It sure seems that way. Aaron Renier's first graphic novel reminds me of Homer Price, The Mad Scientist Club books, Harriet The Spy, and the books of Daniel Pinkwater. Like them, Spiral-Bound stars young heroes in a vividly imagined setting. Estabrook is a city where hopes pan out, goodness is rewarded, and where there are many opportunities for art, adventure, comedy, and uncovering dark secrets...that aren't too dark, and, in fact, end up being a blast. All this is executed with a visual sense of wonder and fun that's reminiscent of Lewis Trondheim and Joann Sfar. A great debut!"-- Chris Duffy, Nickelodeon Magazine Senior Editor "Aaron's great drawings and strong story is just what this world needs. Especially now, because I have kids and I'd rather move to an igloo at the North Pole than raise them in a world without good comic books."-- Tony Millionaire, Author of Sock Monkey "Renier has created an intense, suspenseful yet child-friendly mystery that is full of twists and turns ... if readers aren't too careful, they might find themselves pondering some of life's deepest questions along with the pleasure of the story."-- Cooperative Children's Book Center With an ensemble cast straight from a box of Animal Crackers, this delightful tale of ambition, morality, and self-discovery is the first major work by extraordinary newcomer Aaron Renier. Drawn in a decidedly beautiful fashion, reminiscent of Richard Scarry and Lewis Trondheim, Renier has given us a fully-realized and compellingly adventurous narrative, at once both achingly naive and profoundly worldly. This tightly crafted graphic novel is the real deal, and will charm your socks off. A remarkable debut.

Star Slammers The Complete Collection by Walter Simonson

Author: Walter Simonson
Publisher: IDW Publishing
ISBN: 9781623027759
Release Date: 2015-06-03
Genre: Comics & Graphic Novels

Before Walter Simonson's work with Marvel and DC, there was Star Slammers, a series first devised by Simonson during his college days. The Slammers would later be resurrected as a Marvel graphic novel, and then a miniseries. Simonson describes it thus: ''Once upon a time, there was a race of men who could out-shoot, out-fight, and out-kill anybody. They were paid fabulous sums to act as mercenaries. The practice became so lucrative, they decided to go into business. They became the most successful businessmen in history, and they called themselves... The Star Slammers!'' The collected Star Slammers also features-- published here for the very first time-- Simonson's earliest version of the Slammers created for his college thesis at the Rhode Island School of Design. These stories predate his first professional comics work but strongly show the artist's keen sense of composition and design.
