Set in an imaginary version of Jeff Lemire's hometown, ESSEX COUNTY is an intimate study of an eccentric farming community, and a tender meditation on family, memory, grief, secrets, and reconciliation. With the lush, expressive inking of a cartoonist at the height of his powers, Lemire draws us in and sets us free.
Suzie's just a regular gal with an irregular gift: when she has sex, she stops time. One day she meets Jon and it turns out he has the same ability. And sooner or later they get around to using their gifts to do what we'd ALL do: rob a couple banks. A bawdy and brazen sex comedy for comics begins here, by MATT FRACTION (SATELLITE SAM, Hawkeye) and CHIP ZDARSKY (Prison Funnies, Monster Cops).
The Fade Out
BRUBAKER & PHILLIPS' newest hit series, THE FADE OUT is an epic noir set in the world of noir itself, the backlots and bars of Hollywood at the end of its Golden Era.

Nothing is what it seems in the place where only lies are true. THE FADE OUT is BRUBAKER & PHILLIPS' most ambitious project yet.

Many times compared to Cards Against Humanity or Apples to Apples, Superfight! is a very very simple game. Each player plays a fighter and two power/problem cards. And then everyone argues on who would win in a fight. Actually, that's just one way of playing; many different games are mentioned in the instructions and you can even make up more on your own! There's nothing more to write - this game is fun, awesome, and will have you peeing your pants in laughter.
Santa Cruz's only authorized reseller! Cards Against Humanity is a party game for horrible people. Unlike most of the party games you've played before, Cards Against Humanity is as despicable and awkward as you and your friends. The game is simple. Each round, one player asks a question from a Black Card, and everyone else answers with their funniest White Card.

The Game of Inauspicious Incidents and Grave Consequences - In the Gloom card game, you assume control of the fate of an eccentric family of misfits and misanthropes.

You'll play horrible mishaps like Pursued by Poodles or Mocked by Midgets on your own characters to lower their Self-Worth scores, while trying to cheer your opponents' characters with marriages and other happy occasions that pile on positive points. The player with the lowest total Family Value wins.

The game ends when a player has completed 7 to 9 objectives (depending on the number of players). The player who gets the best score by adding the total value of their completed objective wins the game. 2-4 players.
