The murder ballad holds a rock-solid position in US roots music and the Great American Songbook for decades. Telling the stories of sometimes true and often not-so-true-crimes and other horrific events, they are raw stories full of unrequited love, betrayal, life, and death. The song form stems from the Anglo-Saxon ballad tradition, where stories were orally passed on to a mostly illiterate population. Dutch cartoonist Erik Kriek was inspired by five old and new murder ballads — including songs by modern masters such as Nick Cave, Steve Earle, and Gillian Welch — and used them as a launching point for five special and ruthless graphic narratives that dig deep into the darkness of Americana, in which guns and religion maintain an uneasy balance.

A mysterious, unsettling parable from one of North America's most popular cartoonists First Year Healthy purports to be the story of a young woman, recently released from the hospital after an outburst, and her burgeoning relationship with an odd, perhaps criminal Turkish immigrant. In a scant forty-five pages, working with a vibrant, otherworldly palette of magentas, yellows, and grays, Michael DeForge brings to life a world whose shifting realities are as treacherous as the thin ice its narrator walks on. First Year Healthy is all it appears to be and more: a parable about mental illness, a folktale about magical cats, and a bizarre, compelling story about relationships. DeForge's singular voice and vision have, in a few short years, rocketed his work to the apex of the contemporary comics canon. Ant Colony was his first book with Drawn & Quarterly: It appeared on The New York Times Graphic Bestseller List and was lauded by the Chicago Tribune, The Globe and Mail, and Harper's Magazine. His effortless storytelling and eye for striking page design make each page of First Year Healthy a fascinating puzzle to be unraveled. First Year Healthy, knotty and mysterious, demands to be read and reread.

Comics legends Gilbert Hernandez (LOVE AND ROCKETS), Darwyn Cooke (DC: THE NEW FRONTIER) and Dave Stewart (HELLBOY) craft a haunting and unforgettable tale of magical realism with THE TWILIGHT CHILDREN. No one knows what the mysterious glowing spheres are, or where they come from. The only thing that matters to the residents of the beachside village where the orbs manifest is what they do when they appear. They blind children and imbue them with psychic abilities. They destroy homes, and make entire families disappear. They attract scientists, government experts and secret agents, each with their own agenda. And they inflame small-town passions-secret lovers, simmering resentments-to a fever pitch. Now, theyÕve brought Ela. Materializing on the beach just as mysteriously as one of the orbs, this beautiful woman says nothing, but seems to harbor unspeakable power. Will she help to save the town, or destroy it? Or is it Ela herself who is really in danger? Collects the four-issue VERTIGO miniseries.
