Coming Soon: Recounting Streets
by Juan Berrio

Composed of urban vignettes, the illustrated tales presented give a whimsical and humorous portrayal of a city. A parade of familiar characters comes in and out of focus through the storytelling — dog walkers, doormen, shopkeepers, cell-phone obsessed passersby — to paint a relatable picture of modern living. Such stories as a man crossing paths with a lamppost, a girl watering potted plants in a window, and a young man who finds an interesting advertisement in the street are told through vibrant color illustrations with plenty of visual puns and fanciful humor.

Coming Soon: The Flystones: No Country for Sober Men
by Toni Marmota

The band the Flystones are rebels of Flytown, fighting against repression, injustice, and corruption. But Don Bumblebee, the abject, manipulative, and always angry Flytown mayor, decides to prohibit the dissemination of pop music in all its variants. A fun story with a rock edge to suit the rockstar writer and the real-life counterparts of the animated characters — a band whose roots are in punk, rock, and counterculture — the age-old battle of good versus evil takes wing. Music becomes a vehicle for freedom as the Flystones fight Flytown injustice in a fictional world that is not unlike reality, but with a heavy dose of satire mixed in.

Coming Soon: Unspeakable Vault (of Doom)
by François Launet

A lighthearted view of H. P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos, The Unspeakable Vault (of Doom) is based on the webcomic of the same name by François Launet, which chronicles the "daily" lives of the Great Old Ones, including Cthulhu, Nyarlathotep, and Yog-Sothoth, among others. This funny collection of gag comic strips is a parody of the horror genre that further investigates in humorous detail the monster characters originally created by Lovecraft. Although created to invoke laughter instead of the usual terror found in Lovecraft's work, the book explores dark and mature themes such as death, religion, and the occult, albeit in a light and fanciful manner.
