MISS DON’T TOUCH ME
By Hubert & Kerascoet
At the start of the 20th century, the “Butcher of the Garden Cafes” is prowling for loose young women. Florence, who has no family, works as a maid. Her only friend is her fellow maid, the fun-loving Agatha. When Florence loses her to what she saw was murder (but others only see as suicide), she tracks the killer herself and ends up a servant in a luxury house of call girls. She becomes good at certain lascivious practices — while still remaining a virgin! — but never loses sight of her goal: find the Butcher. Miss Don’t Touch Me is suspenseful and spicy yet deceptive in its depth and realism. The art comes from Kerascoet (the art team of Marie Pommepuy and Sebastien Cosset) from Lewis Trondheim and Joann Sfar’s popular DUNGEON: THE EARLY YEARS
Full color trade paperback, 6½” x 9”, 96 pages, $14.95, ISBN 978-1-56163-544-3

A Treasury of XXth Century Murder, Volume 1 THE LINDBERGH CHILD: America’s Hero and the Crime of the Century
By Rick Geary
Rick Geary’s Treasury of Victorian Murder series enters the 20th century with one of the most sensational cases ever! All was well for Charles Lindbergh after his daring solo crossing of the Atlantic. Then someone abducted his baby son! Geary traces the highly publicized events and colorful characters wanting to “help,” some of whom snookered the beleaguered hero. It’s a story of savory details and unsavory people as only Geary can relate with his understated dark humor.
“Geary’s Victorian series was all about the creepy America that was; this new series looks like it’ll be about the creepy America that is. … A-” — THE ONION
“I devour each of Geary’s volumes the instant they come out. … Just go buy one, already, and you’ll be as hooked as I am.” ?– Andrew Smith, Scripps News Service
“Rick Geary’s version is gripping and grisly precisely because it does away with extracurricular characterization and overt violence, bringing the historical tragedy’s full effect into finer focus.” — Scott Thill, WIRED.com?
“Rick Geary is one of cartooning’s unsung treasures. Highly recommended, topnotch stuff.” — Heidi McDonald, THE BEAT
“Unforgettable, from start to finish.”– ComicBookResources.com?
“This thoughtful retelling of one of the century’s most notorious crimes deserves several readings.” –?PUBLISHERSWEEKLY starred review
