We’re especially excited about this week’s digital releases, which feature new reprints, old favorites, and an Argentine debut!
More rage per page! More slaughter for your dollar! Real Deal, a self-published independent comic book created by Lawrence “Rawdog” Hubbard and H.P. “R.D.

Combining classic Mad magazines with Blaxploitation films, Real Deal is full of convicts, hustlers, drug addicts, and murderers and straddles the line between satirizing and showing the harsh realities of urban life. The entire collection can now be found on comiXology.
The Longest Day of the Future is Argentine cartoonist and graphic designer Lucas Varela’s debut graphic novel in America and takes place in a futuristic city where two mega-corporations share power, while also indulging in a thankless war to eliminate each other by any means necessary.
