BARNSTORMERS BALLAD OF LOVE & MURDER TP

(W) Scott Snyder (A/CA) Tula Lotay

It’s 1927 – the late days of the barnstorming era, when pilots competed with each other by performing deadlier and more wondrous feats.

Injured pilot Hawk E. Baron served on the frontlines of the war. Still a young man, he’s an adventurer who lives his life traveling from town to town in his plane entertaining folks – most of whom have never seen a car, let alone a plane.

His world changes when he meets Tillie, a young woman who shares his passion for aviation and adventure. They become a traveling act, delighting folks with their antics. Tillie even becomes Hawk’s wing-walker, climbing out on the wing of the plane mid-flight to perform death-defying acrobatics.

When they learn they are suspected of a horrific crime, their journey becomes an even deadlier race against time.

Along the way they bond, confessing their secrets, and begin a romance in this lush, character-driven series that explores the early days of aviation and the evolving relationship and romance between two young pilots.


IN UTERO GN

(W) Chris Gooch (A) Chris Gooch

Akira meets Aliens, and Annihilation meets Evangelion, in this coming-of-age monster tale from award-winning graphic novelist Chris Gooch.

Twelve years after a disastrous explosion, young Hailey is dropped off by her mum at a holiday camp in a dilapidated shopping mall.

Alienated from the other kids, she connects with an eerie older teen named Jen… but soon dark horrors awaken, and the two new friends are caught up in a cataclysmic battle between two terrifying creatures who have been lying dormant all this time.

One of Australia’s most acclaimed young graphic novelists, Chris Gooch expertly crafts a taut and intimate thriller about mothers and daughters, the monstrous and the mundane, and the power of friendship in the midst of catastrophe.


DEMON SLAYER KIMETSU ACADEMY VOL 01 GN

(W) Natsuki Hokami (A) Natsuki Hokami

A private combined elementary, middle, and high school, Kimetsu Academy is home to many incredible students and their even more incredible stories.

In just one of many zany tales, Zenitsu and Tanjiro are both late to class, but only one of them has a good excuse.

In another, Zenitsu, Inosuke, and Murata have to take a devilishly difficult extra class. Then Uzui is incredibly disappointed by Zenitsu’s art.

You never know what’ll happen next at Kimetsu Academy!


QUINNELOPE AND THE COOKIE KING CATASTROPHE GN

(W) Kayla Coombs, Hf Brownfield (A/CA) Kayla Coombs, Hf Brownfield

Hysterically funny, refreshingly imaginative, and written with a dyslexia-friendly font, this colourful graphic novel series follows Quinnelope and friends as they adventure through Pleasant Towne to solve their wackiest everyday problems.

Quinnelope wakes up one morning to learn all the cookies in her kingdom have gone missing. Dun dun DuUuuUUuUUUnNN!!!! The bakery and grocery store aisles are full of cakes but NO COOKIES. What is a cookie-obsessed queen supposed to do?! Solve the mystery of the cookie catastrophe, of course! Along with her dutiful butler, Bub, and loyal companion, Star, the trio set out on a mission to find the missing cookies and restore these tasty treats to Pleasant Towne once again. 

But their quest isn’t as easy as it sounds. Womp-wompppp. They’ll need to battle through a cookie-dough volcano, confront the chocolate chipmunk mountain, face off against egg-splosive enemies, and more in order to track down the missing Cookie King.

Will Quinnelope be able to bring the Cookie King and his delicious cookies back to her kingdom, or will she be doomed to eat crummy cakes forever? Find out in this hilarious and colourful debut graphic novel series from Kayla Coombs and HF Brownfield perfect for fans of Investigators and Dog Man!
