Somewhere in the city slums, Street Tiger wakes up, not even remembering how he survived the explosion and the brutal beating from Egghead’s goon, the Shark. Meanwhile, at the city suburbs of Barrio Crema, what seems to be a drug deal takes place. But as always happens in Nam City, nothing is what it seems!
With an original graphic style, Spanish creator Ertito Montana brings the action of every pulp, exploitation movie, plenty of martial arts, callous gangs and skull-breaking bats!
“I f***ing love this comic – it’s violent, well-written, blackly funny and pretty damn great in every regard. Imagine if you took an artist like Adrian Tomine or Peter Bagge and told them to create the most grindhouse/kung fu/B-grade schlock action epic ever and THIS would be what they might come up with…if they were HALF AS GOOD as Spanish creator Ertito Montana.”
Street Tiger is back to work, but this time he isn’t alone! After his failure taking down the Crime Lord Egghead, the Nam City vigilante enlists the help of the deadly Black Dove. Don’t miss the last issue of this head-busting, knuckle-cracking, exploitation comic by innovative artist Ertito Montana!
“I would encourage anyone that’s been looking for a small press/indie book to sink their teeth into to check out Street Tiger. Street Tiger is different, adventurous in its storytelling and art style and let’s not forget weird. Street Tiger is a weird book, and I’ve been dying to read a weird book for a while.”
Read here the full saga of the Ghost Wolf, the spirit of vengeance of the Northern Wastes. When the clan of the Sons of Corr lost their courage, they were swept by the wild tribes. But there was one man decided to fight… and paid with his life. He will become the vessel for the long, forsaken spirit of vengeance… The Ghost Wolf!
SANDMAN Vol. 1: PRELUDES & NOCTURNES TPB: Sandman Vol. 1 Writer: Neil Gaiman Artist: Sam Kieth, Mike Dringenberg
With Neil Gaiman revisiting the Sandman universe with his new mini, Sandman: Overture, this seemed like a good time to review his original masterpiece. In the first volume, the Sandman is captured by a rich occultist who endeavors to capture Death and make it do his bidding. Instead, he captures the Sandman whom he imprisons for 70 years. Eventually escaping, he learns that the symbols of his office have since been turned into powerful relics used by the mystical community. On a search for the symbols of his station from which he draws power, the Sandman must deal with Constantine, go through Hell itself, and stop a deranged inmate of Arkham who suddenly has power and the sick mind to put it to use. Neil Gaiman likely needs no introduction if you’re familiar with Sandman. It’s his best known work and one of the few graphic novels ever to make the New York Times Bestselle…

SINK #3 (Comix Tribe, December 20, 2017 release date) “A Head Full Of Wasps”. Story by John Lees. Art and Colours by Alex Cormack. Letters by Shawn Lee. Logo by Tim Daniel. Sink #3 will make you see red. Blood red. It’s splashed all over the pages of this story, seeping into each and every panel, even before the violence begins. “A Head Full Of Wasps” speaks to the buzzing that occurs in so many brainpans in these troubled and violent times - - and the red that is visualized when some of us experience injustice, brutality, cruelty, or abuse and then seek retribution, revenge, and bloody justice. If only everyone could read this story, and then remember it whenever their cheeks flush with anger - - and think before they act. Yeah, I’m a pipe dreamer. I also just set out to write a review. Don’t know why I’m treating SINK #3 like this is a morality fable. Have you ever read a simple but well-written story that leads to your thinking outside the box about oth…
