A new Naomi Nowak graphic novel:

GRAYLIGHT
Naomi NOWAK
A promise made decades ago could suddenly be fulfilled, endangering the life of a girl, trying her friendships and confusing her suitors. A semi-conscious love triangle ensues in twilit northern forests. Obsession, overprotection and the hunger for everything to be in it’s right place – rules of the game, set to a backdrop of arctic summer.
5 x 71/2, 144pp., full color trade pb.: $12.95
ISBN 978-1-56163-567-2; see previews
Here’s what the press had to say of her previous two books, Unholy Kinship and House of Clay:
“Gorgeously rendered. The surreal art is lovely.” -The Onion
“For anyone reminiscing about Neil Gaiman’s sense of fantasy or looking for someone with a little “what if…” this is a comic book artist worth watching for.” -Feminist Review
“Nowak is clearly a talent who will bear watching. She creates several interesting characters, knows how to establish a strong premise, and she’s not afraid to follow a number of intersecting story lines. Most importantly, she is completely fearless about describing her character’s difficult emotional states.”
-Publishers Weekly
“Nowak blends linework and color to establish significant emotional moods, and her often fragmented pages support her story of broken relationships and dissolving mental states. At its end, this is a frightening tale of losing touch with reality, well illustrated by a promising talent. “ -Comicsworthreading.com


Finally, Rick Geary’s latest, “Famous Players”, will be available in paperback:

A Treasury of XXth Century Murder:
FAMOUS PLAYERS
The Mysterious Death of William Desmond Taylor
Rick GEARY
NOW IN PAPERBACK! It’s the early days of Hollywood, movies are just starting to come of their own and gain in popularity. New Stars are made. The movies are still silent but their stars certainly are not, in the scandal sheets. Amidst this new boiling cauldron, William Desmond Taylor, a successful director at the ‘upscale’ Famous Players Studio is found shot in his home.. Could it have been the star Mary Miles Minter or a former butler? But then, what about that strange past Taylor had? Another delectable mystery as only Geary can tell ‘em!
“A compelling tale full of jealousy, hatred, loyalty and a murderer who walked away from the crime.” -VOYA
“His quirky b&w ink drawings are full of expression, recalling the melodrama of silent films.” -Publishers Weekly
“Geary’s detailed pen-and-ink line provides a wonderful sense of nostalgia and time gone by.” -Johanna Draper Carlson, Comics Worth Reading
“He knows how to tell and show a tale that will captivate your interest. 5 out of 5 stars.” -Jazma Online
“Batting a thousand, so to speak, Geary gives us another ideal first look on a legendary homicide.” -Booklist
