Lumberjanes hits its 75th anniversary issue this November!

You might be interested in a book from Insight if you like DC Sideshow collectibles or maybe you want to cook like an Amazon with Insight’s official Wonder Woman cookbook. And I have to admit that I never thought I’d see a male figure in the face down position on a cover, even if it’s yaoi. Curious? Scroll down to the Sublime manga!
