Labor Day Laboring
That's right! For Labor Day on Monday, we will be working! But only from noon to 5 or so. So stop in if you are full from all the cookouts going on and say hello!
Also, because Raina Telgemeier's new graphic novel Drama is a big deal, it is getting released tomorrow Saturday, September 1st! I have no idea why! But we will have copies then, so come grab some if you can't wait til next week!
UPCOMING - September 22 - Raina Telgemeier signing Drama
Raina Telgemeier, creator of the New York Times bestseller Smile, will be appearing at both our Vienna and College Park stores on Saturday, September 22, for her brand new book Drama!
Callie loves theater. And while she would totally try out for her middle school's production of Moon Over Mississippi, she's a terrible singer. Instead she's the set designer for the stage crew, and this year she's determined to create a set worthy of Broadway on a middle-school budget. But how can she, when she doesn't know much about carpentry, ticket sales are down, and the crew members are having trouble working together? Not to mention the onstage AND offstage drama that occurs once the actors are chosen, and when two cute brothers enter the picture, things get even crazier! Following the success of Smile, Raina Telgemeier brings us another graphic novel featuring a diverse set of characters that humorously explores friendship, crushes, and all-around drama!

A brilliant new anthology from the Nobrow crew, this one has a theme of "Brave New World", leading to some clever looks at the future or the past, from 3 best friends remembering the first time they met as children, to a kid discovering a new world in the woods juxtaposed with a spaceman finding a new planet, to an alphabet of a bright future and an alphabet of a dystopian one! These are seriously some of our favorite creators ever, this is a great deal and package!

Raina is finally back with a new book after her smash hit Smile! This story follows Callie, a set designer in her middle school drama department, and their attempts to put on a new play. Throw in her unrequited crush, some cute new boys trying out for the play, and lots of good friendships, and you have a tale that unfolds slowly but compellingly. It isn't called Drama for nothing!
by Brian Buccellato and Noel Tuazon
A strange new series where monsters secretly lurk on the edges of society, and a broken ex-soldier tries to take care of the child of his junkie neighbor, only to get caught up over his head when the monsters come looking for the boy! Strange but a good start!
Peter Panzerfaust 1: The Great Esape SC
byKurtis J. Wiebe and Tyler Jenkins
A retelling of Peter Pan in World War 2, where young Brit Peter encounters a group of French orphans in Calais, as the Nazis invade! Working together they must fight their way through enemy lines to safety in Paris!
Cat's Cradle 1: The Golden Twine SC
by Jo Rioux
A great new all ages fantasy adventure in the vein of Bone or Three Thieves! Suri is a young girl living with a circus caravan who dreams of becoming a tamer of the monsters that cross the mountains into civilized lands! When she crosses paths with both a giant beast captured by the circus and the mysterious werecats, she gets into a very big adventure very quickly! Fun and fast-paced!
The Voyeurs HC
by Gabrielle Bell
A collection of Bell's ruminations and diary from over 5 years, including her time when she was promoting the film she made with then boyfriend Michel Gondry in Japan, their time on vacation in rural France, trying to make another long distance relationship work, and a trip to Comicon! Harshly honest and compelling, very fascinating stories.
Steed and Mrs. Peel #0
by Mark Waid and Steve Bryant
All new adventures based on The Avengers TV show from the '60s! The dastardly Hellfire Club is back, with a new drug that ages people, and they are kidnapping British agent and making them think they have been asleep until the distant year 2000! Fun and campy adventure, in the light hearted vein that Waid is so good at, like in Daredevil and The Rocketeer!
Amulet 5: Prince of the Elves SC
At last a new book of Amulet! The Elf King is trying to make new Amulets, Emily is trying to stop him, and her own personal Amulet may be a darker thing than she could have thought! Great fantasy adventure for fans of Bone!
