  • A long time ago in a galaxy far far away…Edgar Allan Poe was born. On January 19, 1803, if we’re being precise. And even though he only lived to be 40 years old, he left behind a lifetime of Gothic short stories, poetry, and essays. Even longer ago, Poe Dameron was born to defeat the First Order. He’s a fierce X-Wing fighter with a soft spot for droids. Two very different men, both named Poe. To celebrate Edgar Allan Poe’s birthday and the release of The Last Jedi – no spoilers, we promise – we’ve concocted a quiz that would make both Poes proud.

  • BOOK The Con Artist

    This illustrated mystery will appeal to comic book fans and anyone who appreciates an unconventional whodunit.

  • Have you read Ten Dead Comedians by Fred Van Lente? You might remember the hardcover as a vibrant blue. For the paperback edition, coming out in Summer '18, Art Director Doogie Horner redesigned the cover, and it looks AMAZING.

    We sat down with Doogie to talk about the new cover. Read on below!

  • Happy New Year! Now’s the time for new beginnings and setting future resolutions. For the inhabitants of Middle Earth those resolutions might look a “tiny” bit different than most.

  • New Year's Eve this year looked very different than it would have a hundred years ago. No midnight selfies to post on Instagram, no club-hopping between venues with a $50 cover and too many drunk people, no last-minute Tinder dates to try and find someone to kiss when the clock strikes twelve. Despite these new ways to celebrate, New Year’s Eve has always been an important night to mark in the calendar, and people have always done something to celebrate. A more sedated ball, a house party (not the kind with red solo cups), a family evening around the fire, or some champagne with a few friends have been the go-to for centuries. And while cultural norms around drinking come and go, one thing is for certain: our favorite authors have no doubt dealt with some serious New Year’s hangovers at one time or another.

    But how would these classic literary figures deal with the first day of the year if they were in their prime this winter? We have some thoughts.

  • It’s Jacob Grimm’s birthday on January 4 and we couldn’t be more excited to celebrate. And while we’re not cramming 233 candles on a cake – we tried, they wouldn’t fit – we are partying it up with the unusual fairy tale adaptations Grimm and his contemporaries inspired. So, happy birthday, Jacob Grimm. We’ll be over here by the punch bowl hanging out with Hans Christian Andersen and your brother Wilhelm.
