In the middle of a quiet, not-so-special clearing in the woods, a wee tiny whatsit wakes up without any memory at all. So he sets off in search of his maker, as well as some sense of purpose in Life. Along the way, he encounters a bizarre cast of silly, helpful, and oddly poignant characters who teach him how to survive this crazy game called Existence.The Big Empty Life of Alphonse Tabouret is an existential fairy tale about Life, Love, Loss, and the search for answers to questions we all ask nobody in particular. While cute and silly on the surface, almost every encounter is metaphorical (without being heavy-handedly so). This adorably engaging and heartwarming tale invites the reader to decipher the life lessons gleaned by Alphonse in personal terms that speak to today's social conditions. Through the innocent lens of simple, cute characterization, readers are presented with honest questions about parenting, materialism, addiction, codependency, narcissism, depression, and the search for meaning that we all undergo every day.

The Voyager, NASA's space probe launched in the '70s, has been peacefully traveling through space for years when, unexpectedly, it's attacked by an alien, laser-shooting space shuttle. The space craft belongs to Reptilon, home planet to creatures once thought extinct: dinosaurs. These creatures aren't like the sixty-five-million-year-old species, though. On the exact opposite orbit of Earth, always blocked by the Sun, and never hit by that giant meteor, the planet didn't face the same evolutionary fate as Earth, giving the planet fully evolved, highly advanced humanoid dinosaurs with technology far greater than that of Earth. Their tyrant king, however, has zapped his planet of all resources in his climb to power. Reptilon is dying, but with the new discovery they made from The Voyager, maybe they can commandeer more than a satellite to keep their species alive.

But it wasn't until a shoulder injury forced John to simplify his drawing style and improvise the comics instead of actually sitting down and writing them that Pie Comics became the beloved strip it is today! This collection showcases some of the funniest and most trenchant of Onion writer John McNamee's online comic strips, found at piecomic.tumblr.com.

The city-sized, deep-space cruise ship "Infinity 8" stops halfway en route between the Milky Way and Andromeda, blocked by a massive field of debris containing wreckage and artifacts from countless planets, cultures, and possibly dimensions. The captain of the ship calls upon eight of the ship's top security to investigate the anomaly, each one sent out in a parallel time-loop to collect information which can then be assembled to hopefully discover the truth before disaster erupts. But danger reveals itself within the interspecies population on the ship, some of whom may know more than they lead on . . . A far-out, pulpy, sci-fi series of parallel adventures by some of the most popular creators in France, in the tongue-in-cheek tradition of the original Heavy Metal but for a new generation. Eight different 3-issue miniseries collections, all by a different creative team, led by legendary Lewis Trondheim and Olivier Vatine. Part One of the first 3-part arc, "Love and Mummies."

Special agent Stella Moonkicker is tasked with keeping the peace on board the Infinity 8 interstellar cruise liner, which is surprisingly easy with the peaceful, historical art society who has taken to the quaint philosophy of elegance and happiness perpetuated centuries ago by a mysterious group called "Nazis."

The second arc in the eight-part space opera introduces new agent Stella Moonkicker, as well as other faces who will become more familiar as the mystery of the floating barricade of debris unfolds. Written by series co-creator Lewis Trondheim and illustrated by series co-creator and design director Olivier Vatine, this madcap—and often socially poignant—adventure captures the best of classic pulp sci-fi with a modern twist.

The city-sized, deep-space cruise ship "Infinity 8" stops halfway en route between the Milky Way and Andromeda, blocked by a massive field of debris containing wreckage and artifacts from countless planets, cultures, and possibly dimensions. The captain of the ship calls upon eight of the ship's top security to investigate the anomaly, each one sent out in a parallel time loop to collect information which can then be assembled to hopefully discover the truth before disaster erupts. Each time loop lasts only eight hours, at which point things snap back to the way they were when they started, leaving the agents with no memories of their time in that window. Can the eight agents solve the mystery without making things worse? Danger reveals itself within the interspecies population on the ship, some of whom may know more than they lead on . . . The first volume introduces us to the crew and captain of the Infinity 8 as they first encounter the anomaly, and the first security agent—the brassy Yoko Keren—is sent out on the case. But she's too preoccupied by her own relationship woes (or lack-of-relationship woes) to focus on the job. When a race of necrophagous aliens follow her into a floating graveyard, they begin to assimilate the criminal and violent behavior of the corpses they devour. With their attention turned back to the ship itself, Yoko has to find a way to stop them from destroying the ship before her time loop expires.

Can the eight agents solve the mystery without making things worse? Danger reveals itself within the interspecies population on the ship, some of whom may know more than they lead on . . . The second in the eight-volume series of pulpy sci-fi adventures, this time by legendary writer Lewis Trondheim and series designer Olivier Vatine themselves. Another venture into the field of debris uncovers some strange artifacts from numerous historical eras . . . including the head of Adolf Hitler! Returning it to the ship for study turns disastrous as their future science restores life and awareness to the head, giving rise to the threat of a brand new Reich made up of robots and fanatics who've lost all understanding of the genocidal agenda the former dictator originally unleashed! Crucial information transmitted by first agent Yoko Keren (at the end of Vol.1) has made the Captain decide to launch a new parallel time-loop and activate a second agent: the impulsive Stella Moonkicker, who will only have eight hours to collect the maximum amount of information possible. Flanked by Bobbie, her boring probation robot, shadowing her since her most recent bout of "unprofessional conduct," she is assigned as security for a group of fanatics who long for the return of the Nazis, not fully understanding exactly what the Nazis actual did or stood for. Their centuries-old impression has become watered down to something like a simple philosophy for peace . . . a far cry from the dangers of their actual original philosophy. But when they find the cryonized head of Adolf Hitler floating in the mysterious wreckage blocking the ship and try to reactivate it, the threat of a Fourth Reich on the Infinity 8 proves to be very serious. Stella and Bobbie will have to confront the reanimated Führer, who is confused by this strange future and hell-bent on taking over the world (again). But if the Captain is killed, no reboot can take place and the advent of the Fourth Reich will become the only time frame to have ever existed . . .
