This graphic novel collects the all-new travels and travails of Hutch Owen, the homeless rebel that battles the corporate forces that control our lives. Included in this volume are: "Public Relations," where Hutch is pitted against the Worner company and a PR firm bent on redesigning the World Trade Center Site (this 92-page story -- the longest Hutch story to date -- was a one-page-per-week improvisational drama begun as a personal response to 9-11); "Aristotle," in which Hutch winds up in Worner's employ as a slogan writer; as well as a surreal Hutch Owen "24-hour comic" in which Hutch battles the trends of the "far future" when everyone wants to be on TV and thinks they have something new to say. Hart's shorter Hutch Owen stories round out the collection with "Consumer Confidence Level," "In Hong Kong," "Attacking Attacked Attacking," and "The Executive Hour" (a solo Dennis Worner story). Don't miss this politically astute and heart-warming farce.

From The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen...
Sixteen years ago, notorious science-brigand Janni Nemo journeyed into the frozen reaches of Antarctica to resolve her father's weighty legacy in a storm of madness and loss, barely escaping with her Nautilus and her life.
Now it is 1941, and with her daughter strategically married into the family of aerial warlord Jean Robur, Janni's raiders have only limited contact with the military might of the clownish German-Tomanian dictator Adenoid Hynkel. But when the pirate queen learns that her loved ones are held hostage in the nightmarish Berlin, she has no choice save to intervene directly, travelling with her ageing lover Broad Arrow Jack into the belly of the beastly metropolis. Within that alienated city await monsters, criminals and legends, including the remaining vestiges of Germany's notorious 'Twilight Heroes', a dark Teutonic counterpart to Mina Murray's League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. And waiting at the far end of this gauntlet of alarming adversaries there is something much, much worse.
Continuing in the thrilling tradition of Heart of Ice, Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill rampage through twentieth-century culture in a blazing new adventure, set in a city of totalitarian shadows and mechanical nightmares. Cultures clash and lives are lost in the explosive collision of four unforgettable women, lost in the black and bloody alleyways where thrive THE ROSES OF BERLIN.

Tales of Woodsman Pete (2006)
English | CBR | 80 pages | 40.15 MB

From one of the bright new faces in the indie comix scene comes a collection of vignettes and stories about a solitary albeit gregarious woodsman with a loose grasp on his own personal history and that of the outside world. He forms relationships with his inanimate surroundings and muses to a dead audience, specifically his bear rug Phillippe. His own tales eventually become entangled with that of the legendary Paul Bunyan, and the two become indirectly intertwined, illuminating the discrepancy between the character of the storyteller and the character within his stories. The lives of both Paul and Pete encounter such things as the questionable origin of an ocean and the desire for preservation of everything from a fallen bird to an overused expression that has strayed a stone's throw from its original meaning.

Hey Princess is a story of moving to the big city, and being young, insecure and desperate to be as hip as everyone else. When first published in Sweden, the book received praise among both critics and readers for its incisive and entertaining account of indie pop-listening young people in the mid-1990s. Hey Princess takes its place in the proud tradition of self-deprecating, confessional, sex-obsessed and guilt-ridden autobiographical comics, but stakes out a unique identity by virtue of its Nordic setting and biting social criticism.
