In 1979 Ringer Publishing Paperbacks released Time for Frank and His Friend, the first collection of Clarence “Otis” Dooley’s legendary comic strip that wasn’t a reprint of his newspaper work. Well, it’s not 1979 anymore, but we’ve got first edition “deadstock” copies of this best-selling comic paperback. And it’s just as terrific as you remember! But don’t worry if you don’t remember it -- the strip and the cartoonist never existed! Since 2010, Curio & Co. has been creating entertainment collectibles from an alternate history that play with the power of nostalgia and re-create warm memories from childhood. These were the kind of comics that you hid behind the textbook in Mrs. Henderson’s Social Studies class. She’d always threaten to take it away if she saw it again, but she never did. (She was sweeter than we ever gave her credit for.)

Introduction by Bill Maher. The world's first "Instant Graphic Novel!" When U.S. bombs started raining on the Taliban, Rall didn't just watch it on TV - he jumped on a plane straight to the war zone to get the real story for himself. But the only cartoonist to go to Afghanistan got more than he bargained for, way more than his previous gut-wrenching trip deep up the legendary Silk Road. Within days of arriving, armed men were hunting down journalists to murder and rob them. Waving funnies didn't help. From the gruesome spectacle of a Taliban prisoner blowing himself up with grenades to the hilarious image of mujahideen lining up for shaves and DVD porn a day after joining the Northern Alliance, you can count on Rall for a decidedly different take on this gritty war. To Afghanistan and Back features as its centerpiece a 50-page graphic novel travelogue of his experience as a cartoonist and war correspondent. It also includes Rall's articles, cartoons and photos as filed from the front for the Village Voice and syndicated throughout America.

A cartoon collection from the Eisner Award- winning and New Yorker Magazine cartoonist Shannon Wheeler! Too Much Coffee Man, the long-underwear-clad hero who's been delighting fans for two decades, returns to the printed page in his first all-new adventures since having his life remade in opera form. Wheeler remains one of the best satirist of a generation, lending a hilariously cynical eye to Too Much Coffee Man's struggle to make sense of the ever-changing modern world - with a space octopus thrown in for good measure, of course.

One year has passed since Phoebe skipped a rock across a pond, accidentally hit a unicorn in the face, and was granted a single wish--which she used to make the unicorn, Marigold Heavenly Nostrils, her obligational best friend. In some ways, not much has changed. At school Phoebe still clashes with her rival--and sometimes "frenemy"--he ever-taunting and imperious Dakota. Outside of school, she still fills her free time with extra-credit homework assignments, dramatic monologues about the injustices associated with school cliques, and imaginative conspiracy theories regarding global forces like the "powerful construction paper lobby." But unlike before, Phoebe now has a best friend to share it with--someone to make her laugh and to listen to all her extravagant ideas. In this second volume of Heavenly Nostrils, titled, Unicorn on a Roll, the reader is invited on a journey into the lives of Phoebe and Marigold as they navigate the difficulties of grade school, celebrate the winter holidays, and explore their super hero/super villain personas together. Join in the fun, as Phoebe competes against Dakota for the leading role of "Lisa Ladybug" in their fourth-grade play--or as she struggles to "manage" the PR debacle related to her nose-picking-scandal. ("I will neither confirm nor deny the events surrounding Boogergate.") Witness a band of unicorns staging an "intervention" and learn all the details of Marigold's secret crush on a mysterious creature she has never seen. Perhaps most important, watch as this surprising friendship between a charming, nine-year-old dreamer and a vain, mythical beast forever changes both of them for the better.

School's out! That means no more teachers, no more books, and lots of time to compliment Marigold Heavenly Nostrils on her good looks. In this third volume, Phoebe and her obligational best friend, Marigold, learn that summer still has plenty of surprises for the both of them. All of our old friends are back--Phoebe's part-time "frenemy" Dakota, upon whom Marigold has bestowed sentient hair, Phoebe's goofy parents, and even Lord Splendid Humility (but please, ignore his magnificence if you can)! Have fun as Phoebe and Marigold continue the "Phoebegold Detective Agency," spend a week at Wolfgang Music Camp, and find themselves in more misadventures, thanks to Marigold's enchanted sparkles! Along the way, Phoebe makes some new friends, such as Sue--her unique clarinet-playing bunkmate, Florence Unfortunate Nostrils, Marigold's estranged sister, and Camp Wolfgang's lake monster who enjoys tacos and Wi-Fi. When school resumes, read along as Phoebe enjoys (or suffers from) a brief case of popularity, mentally catalogs her grievances against dodge ball, and, with Marigold's help, rescues Dakota and her hair from the queen of the goblins. Through these wacky adventures, Phoebe and Marigold learn that their friendship is the second most magical thing of all, after Marigold's beauty, of course. Includes an introduction by Cory Doctorow and his daughter Poesy!
