Welcome back for another year of tablet-tempting digital releases as well as backlist barnburners. This week, we’ve got both!
Up first is the second giant collection in the Complete Crepax project: The Time Eaters and Other Stories. Spanning the 1960s–1980s, this science fiction themed volume features Guido Crepax’s adventuress Valentina as well as two more of the famed Italian erotic artist’s heroines. Marianna is a mysterious friend, Belinda is a motorcycle-driving, pop art action star, and in “The Time Eater,” Valentina meets a curious couple in an asylum and is caught in a Rube Goldberg-like death trap. All of this and more can be found on comiXology and Google Play.
Also, out of the Fantagraphics vault this week comes Dinomania: The Lost Art of Winsor McCay, The Secret Origins of King Kong, and the Urge to Destroy New York. Find this gigantically entertaining book on comiXology for the first time today!
