If you like reading comics on your tablet, today is a big day. We’ve got books by the late, great Jack Davis, modern classics by Dame Darcy and Dash Shaw, and new collections and graphic novels from Spain and Argentina.
The Living Mummy and Other Stories collects Jack Davis at his most eye-poppingly terrifying and gleefully gruesome. These vintage EC stories feature everything a horror fan could ask for — vampires, ghouls, revenge — all leavened with the pun-laced humor of scripter Al Feldstein and illuminated by the virtuoso brushwork of Davis himself. Find The Living Mummy on comiXology and Google Play.
Dame Darcy has been bewitching readers for over 20 years with her neo-Victorian horror/humor/romance comic Meat Cake. The Meat Cake Bible is the definitive collection of the series, one that feels like you’ve peeked into the most creative, deranged dollhouse you’ve ever seen, with all 17 issues plus extras. Get the Meat Cake Bible on comiXology and Google Play.
Cosplayers by Dash Shaw celebrates fandom in all its theatricality and DIY beauty, as well as its conflation of fantasy with reality. Cosplayers collects all seven interconnected short stories about two young woman and proves to be affectionate, funny, and humanistic. Get Cosplayers through comiXology and Google Play.

Last but not least, we have Wrinkles by Spanish cartoonist Paco Roca. Wrinkles tells the tale of two men who attempt one last adventure as they try to escape an Alzheimer’s ward. This heartwarming and fun book can be found on comiXology.
