TRAVELING TO MARS #1 $3.99 Page 238
Mark Russell and Roberto Meli
From two-time Eisner and Harvey Award nominee Mark Russell and hot new talent Roberto Meli comes a compelling new sci-fi series. Traveling to Mars tells the story of former pet store manager Roy Livingston, the first human to ever set foot on Mars. Roy was chosen for this unlikely mission for one simple reason: he is terminally ill and therefore has no expectation of returning. Roy is joined on his mission to Mars by Leopold and Albert, two Mars rovers equipped with artificial intelligence, who look upon the dying pet store manager as a sort of god. Against the backdrop of not only his waning days but those of human civilization as well, Roy has ample time to think about where things went wrong for both of them and what it means to be a dying god. A riveting story of planetary exploration and of finding meaning in your final days. SEP221234

San Francisco, 1971. As the Vietnam War rages, the government wages war at home against the hippy counter-culture. High profile drug trials capture headlines. Seymour Phillips, a headstrong journalist eager to prove himself, discovers key information uncovering a vast drug network. A routine interview leads to a sensational accusation that the man accused of trafficking mass quantities of LSD, works for the CIA. Seymour is approached by CHASE, an eccentric, paranoid stranger in disguise who claims to be a former CIA operative and have the inside scoop on the CIA/LSD connection. Chase insists that Seymour has only scratched the surface. The two forge a most uncommon alliance in a dangerous and mind-bending quest for the truth behind quite possibly the most bizarre chapter of the CIA’s history. While most Americans were watching Leave it to Beaver and listening to The Everly Brothers, an eclectic group of CIA operatives were spiking each other’s coffees with LSD, throwing decadent parties and hiring prostitutes to slip unsuspecting johns drug-laced drinks in order to observe every stoned and kinky moment from behind two-way mirrors. And this was only when they weren’t dreaming up the next far reaching “official” application for this new, all-powerful, mind blowing drug – a drug that would ironically fuel the counter-culture over a decade later. Coincidence? Maybe not. 0922CP348 NEW PRINTING

PROJECT MK ULTRA SEX DRUGS AND THE CIA HC VOL 2 $24.99
Brandon Beckner, Scott Sampila, Stewart Kenneth Moore
While most Americans were watching Leave it to Beaver and listening to The Everly Brothers, an eclectic group of CIA operatives were spiking each other’s coffees with LSD, throwing decadent parties and hiring prostitutes to slip unsuspecting johns drug-laced drinks in order to observe every stoned and kinky moment from behind two-way mirrors. And this was only when they weren’t dreaming up the next far reaching “official” application for this new, all-powerful, mind-blowing drug – a drug that would ironically fuel the counter-culture over a decade later. Coincidence? Maybe not. Based on actual events, Project MK-ULTRA is a zany, pop-culture laced Alice in Wonderland ride exploring the history of LSD through the eyes of a young, hungry journalist whose life is turned upside down when he’s sucked into the absurdity of the CIA’s most guarded top-secret Mind Control Project. Picking up from Volume One’s cliff-hanger ending, Volume Two catapults readers into the darkest reaches of this twisted tale as it psychedelically spirals towards a jaw-dropping conclusion – one which will undoubtedly leave readers re-thinking everything they thought they knew about the counterculture of the 1960s and 1970s. 0922CP349

MEN I TRUST HC $34.99 Page 314
Tommi Parrish
Tommi Parrish’s sophomore graphic novel establishes them as one of the most exciting voices in contemporary literature. Eliza is a thirtysomething struggling single mother and poet. Sasha, a twentysomething yearning for direction in life, just moved back in with her parents and dabbles as a sex worker. The two strike up an unlikely friendship that, as it veers toward something more, becomes a deeply resonant exploration of how far people are willing to go to find intimacy in a society that is increasingly closed off. In Sasha and Eliza, Parrish has created two of the most fully realized characters in recent contemporary fiction. Parrish’s gorgeously painted pages showcase a graceful understanding of body language and ear for dialogue, brilliantly using the medium of comics to depict the dissonance between the characters’ interior and exterior experiences. Men I Trust is about not-always-healthy people attempting to make healthy connections in a disconnected world, and is one of the most moving and insightful works of literary fiction in any medium this year.
