  • The Joyners in 3D: An Archaia Original Graphic Novel

  • The Joyners in 3D: An Archaia Original Graphic Novel
    In mid-21st century Northern California, prosperous technology executive George Joyner stands on the brink of revolutionizing life in America (again) with his latest high-flying invention. But just as business booms, George's private life begins to implode, with devastating consequences, for his wife Sonya, their children Rochester and Michelle, and Sonya's ailing father, David. Brought to life in stunning anaglyph 3D (two pairs of glasses come enclosed with each book), The Joyners in 3D details a story of personal betrayals, industrial intrigue, and sexual desire in uncompromising and visually impeccable terms. The Joyners in 3D reunites writer R.J. Ryan and New York Times best-selling illustrator David Marquez (Ultimate Comics Spider-Man, All-New X-Men), collaborators on Archaia's acclaimed graphic novel Syndrome, for which Marquez earned a 2011 Russ Manning Award nomination.

  • Lena Finkle's Magic Barrel: A Graphic Novel

  • Following the end of her fifteen-year marriage, Lena Finkle finds herself attempting to make sense of the dating scene as a thirty-seven-year-old sing
    A darkly funny graphic novel from the acclaimed author of "Petropolis" Ulinich earned her literary stripes with her debut novel, "Petropolis," and gained wide recognition for her "textured characters" ("BUST Magazine") and "beautiful, far-ranging voice" (Gary Shteyngart). Ulinich's long-awaited second work of fiction, the graphic novel" Lena Finkle's Magic Barrel," evokes Louis C.K.'s sensibilities and Amy Winehouse's longing and anguish-often in the same frame-as Ulinich turns her sharp eye toward the strange, sometimes unmooring world of "grown-up" dating. After fifteen years of marriage, thirty-seven-year-old Lena embarks on a string of online dates and receives a brutally eye-opening education in love, sex, and loss while raising her two teenage daughters. With references to Bernard Malamud and Chekhov along the way, this is a smart, funny story told beautifully through Ulinich's text and drawings.

  • Gettysburg: The Graphic Novel

  • Gettysburg: The Graphic Novel
    Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address is familiar to all Americans. But never has his most famous speech-his 271 indelible words-been presented in such a visual and accessible format. Graphic artist and Civil War aficionado C.M. Butzer deftly uses a detailed, comic-book style to depict the Battle of Gettysburg; the national movement to create a memorial there; and the quiet day in 1863 when Lincoln delivered his galvanizing speech. Butzer uses only primary sources for the text, drawing from first-person letters and diaries, speeches, and Lincoln's own writing to unpack this series of historical events. The address itself is played out over eighteen pages, with every phrase given a visual interpretation that will resonate with young readers.

  • Awkward and Definition: The High School Comic Chronicles of Ariel Schrag

  • Awkward and Definition: The High School Comic Chronicles of Ariel Schrag
    Ariel Schrag captures the American high school experience in all its awkward, questioning glory in "Awkward and Definition, " the first of three amazingly honest autobiographical graphic novels about her teenage years. During the summer following each year at Berkeley High School in California, Ariel wrote a comic book about her experiences, which she would then photocopy and sell around school. Some friends thrilled to see themselves in the comic, others not so much, but everyone was interested. "Awkward" chronicles Ariel's freshman year, and "Definition, " her sophomore year. With anxiety in excess and frustration to the fullest, Ariel dives in - meeting new people, going to concerts, crushing out, loving chemistry, drawing comics, and obsessing over everything from glitter-laden girls to ionic charges and the constant pursuit of the number-one score. Totally true and achingly honest, with every cringe-inducing encounter and exhilarating first moment documented - "Awkward and Definition" is an unflinching look at what it's like being a teenage girl in America.

  • Silent Partner: The Graphic Novel

  • Silent Partner: The Graphic Novel
    The first graphic novel adaptation from master of psychological suspense Jonathan Kellerman brings a stunning new visual edge to the classic "New York Times" bestseller "Silent Partner"-a "harrowing tale of murder and manipulation" ("The Plain Dealer") that "hits the reader right between the eyes" ("Los Angeles Times Book Review"). Alex Delaware is struggling to keep his relationship with girlfriend Robin Castagna alive when a beautiful face from the past suddenly steps back into his life. Sharon Ransom was Alex's lover back in the day-until her mind games and increasingly erratic behavior drove them apart. Now Sharon tries to rekindle old feelings and seek his help with some new troubles. Alex turns her away-a decision he bitterly regrets when Sharon ends up dead the next day. The official ruling is suicide, but for Alex the case won't be closed until he finds out what happened. Driven by guilt and grief, he plunges deep into the territory he knows best-where dark secrets, dangerous fears, and twisted needs prey on hearts and minds. With the aid of his trusted friend, homicide cop Milo Sturgis, Alex traces Sharon's fatal path through a world of Hollywood high life riddled with scandal, corruption, and blood-where innocence and lives are easily lost. Scripted by Ande Parks, author of the acclaimed graphic novels "Union Station" and "Capote in Kansas, " and illustrated by Marvel and DC comics veteran Michael Gaydos, "Silent Partner" captures Jonathan Kellerman's trademark blen
