The Baby-Sitters Club: The Truth About Stacey
by Ann Martin, Raina Telgemeier


Poor Stacey. She's moved to a new town. She's still coming to terms with her diabetes. She's facing baby-sitting problems left and right...and her parents are no help. Luckily, Stacey has three new, true friends: Kristy, Claudia, and Mary Anne. Together, they're the Baby Sitter's Club, and they will deal with whatever's thrown their way -- even if it is a rival club!

Written by Ann M. Martin and illustrated by Raina Telgemeier, this is the second graphic novel in the Baby-Sitter's Club series! Published by Scholastic books, this 140-page book is perfect for pre-teen and early-teen girls. Recommended by Cold Cut.

REVIEW: Jack of Fables

December 1st, 2006 6:08am by ComicList Email

Suspended Animation Review

Horrors!

The original Aesop, Mother Goose and Grimm fairy tales we grew up reading have been redacted! Ad-mittedly, they were pretty nasty.

The new comic book, Jack of Fables, starts out mildly nasty and stays that way; its villain is quietly working behind the scenes in Fable-town. His name is Revise, and he wants to redact the home of all fairy tales, Fabletown, where Snow White, Paul Bunyon, and Jack Horner [aka Jack B. Nimble, Jack Frost, Jack the Giant-Killer] live with lots of fairy tale characters.

It's a lousy place.

REVIEW: Thieves and Kings: The Walking Mage

November 28th, 2006 5:44am by ComicList Email

Cold Cut Product Spotlight -- Thieves and Kings

Mark Oakley's epic fantasy series is back with a new, full-color graphic novel!

The royal wizard, Quinton Zempfester, has lost his job. Again. This time though, his name has also been added to the top of the kingdom's list of most wanted criminals. Unfairly accused by teh dark witch who has seized the throne, Quinton decides that perhaps a little treason might not be such a bad idea after all.

From Cold Cut's earliest days, Thieves and Kings has been among our favorite series. An intelligently-written, well-plotted fantasy by Mark Oakley, Thieves and Kings ran for 45 comic issues (available in 5 separate trade paperbacks) -- and now Quinton returns in a special side-adventure. This is a 64-page, self-contained story, in a squarebound, digest-sized book -- in full color! To find out more about the series, please visit http://www.iboxpublishing.com

REVIEW: Wahoo Morris TPB Vol. 1

November 21st, 2006 5:52am by ComicList Email

Cold Cut Distribution Product Spotlight -- Wahoo Morris

Sex, drugs, and rock 'n roll...and a little bit of magic.

Wahoo Morris Book One
by Craig A. Taillefer, n/a

Indie rock band Wahoo Morris is ready to hit the road to rock and roll fame and glory. Made up of long time friends Chas on bass, Sebastien on laed guitar, and Arnie on drums, the fledgling group is rounded out by newcomer Alicia on lead vocals. On stage the band gels, but off-stage things aren't going quite so smoothly. Sebastien has developed an attraction to Alicia that is not in the band's best interest. And the band's enigmatic new lead signer's dabbling in the occult threatens more than their carefully laid plans for success.

Wahoo Morris has always been one of our favorite indy comics -- a gem of the small press world that hasn't quite yet found its audience. Now you can read all of the first four issues of the comic book series in this new digest-sized collection! To find out more about the series, please visit http://www.wahoomorris.com
