Action! Adventure! Romance! Drugs! This week’s digital releases have it all and the artists span several generations of brilliant cartooning. Turn on those tablets because here’s what’s going digital today:
Boy’s Club is Matt Furie’s deadpan comics showcase featuring roommates Andy, Brett, Landwolf, and the infamous Pepe in a series of hilarious vignettes combining laconic psychedelia, childlike enchantment, drug-fueled hedonism, and impish mischief. Need we say more? Catch this internet sensation on comiXology.
In Highbone Theater, Joe Daly’s new graphic novel epic, Palmer — wallflower, mystic seeker, and paper mill worker — moves into a new apartment with his outwardly self-assured and womanizing friend. Events take a peculiar turn as Palmer befriends his coworker Billy Boy and plunges headlong into the mysterious and sinister world of sorcery and conspiracy. Get in on this wild goose chase through comiXology and Google Play.
In 1972, legendary cartoonist Wallace Wood created Shattuck, a rarely-seen Western comic strip, assisted by soon-to-be greats Dave Cockrum and Howard Chaykin. Full of gun-toting femmes fatale, fast-drawing lawmen, and snarling outlaws, this spurs ’n’ saddles romp can be yours through comiXology and Google Play.
A few more books from weeks and years past are also being added to comiXology today. They are:
