New This Quarter

Crazy Asian Girl by Lonnie Allen, John Peters, and Paul Niemiec - Cagi isn't your typical Asian teenager: she's underachieving, angry and mischievous. After being grounded, Cagi sneaks out of the house -- will our town survive? (c) 2008 Lonnie Allen, published by Gypsygirl Press. General. 30 page, b&w saddle-stitched digest, $3.00 US.

2nd Place, Vol. 2, No. 1 by Will Barnes - Collects various stories: Should one really aspire to be a superhero? What if you were a hero who wasn't super, powerful, or even heroic? Questions and doubts don't stop the Masked Marvel! He grapples with heroism and the quest to find an enemy in the big, wide, mundane, and complicated world of Denver Colorado. Jodi Baja is above all else (and underneath a decidedly updated facade) a classic, hardboiled, noir detective -- one who's enmeshed in the undercurrents, twists and turns of a diverse, progressive, downtown neighborhood. General. 24 page, b&w saddle-stitched comic, color cover, $3.00 US.

Limbus #2 by Andy Glass - Another Journey into the unconscious, written and drawn by Andy Glass - Highly charged characters tell a metaphoric tale of one man's journey into the world within our own minds. Is it all just a dream or something more? Mature. 24 page, b&w saddle-stitched comic, color cover, $3.00 US.
