Source: Press Release

Depending on where you live, it's probably pretty cold out there.  It's only going to get colder.  Don't bother going outside.  Stay inside and read comics.  Comics are awesome.  Our friends at Top Shelf agree.  That's why they make awesome comics.  Today, they announce two new books for younger readers, but they also have some of their old stuff coming back around again.  It's like they say: if you haven't read it, it's new to you.  The Shelf is also continuing to head onward, into the future with some digital releases from their back catalogue (not to mention the continuing digital series Double Barrel). 

 Top Shelf new releases: AUGUST MOON and UPSIDE DOWN: A VAMPIRE TALE!

As we head into winter and the nights get longer, it's the perfect time to curl up with the chills and thrills of a new book... and as usual, Top Shelf has plenty of magic for readers both young and old. In this month's new releases, get spooked silly with UPSIDE DOWN and seriously spooked with AUGUST MOON!


HOT OFF THE PRESS: AUGUST MOON & UPSIDE DOWN: A VAMPIRE TALE!
 

AUGUST MOON by Diana Thung
-- 320 pages • 6" x 8" • $14.95 (US)
-- ISBN 978-1-60309-069-8 • Young Adult (13+)
-- In stores (and in stock) now!

"A dream of a book. August Moon hums with menace and wonder, like the coolest childhood you never had. Diana Thung's work is beautiful in all the right ways, for all the right reasons." -- Junot Díaz, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao and This Is How You Lose Her

The townspeople of Calico believe in family. In fact, some say that the souls of dead ancestors watch over this town, and on a clear night, you can see their "Soul Fires" dancing through the sky.

But when young Fiona Gan comes to town with her father, she finds that the Soul Fires are just the beginning of Calico's mysteries. Strange graffiti appears all over town, a huge rabbit-like creature is found in an alley, and a peculiar street boy named Jaden claims to come from the moon. Now time may be running out, because Fi and her dad are not the only newcomers to Calico. As the Soul Fire festival approaches and a creepy corporation starts to bulldoze the nearby forests, she finds herself drawn into Jaden's battle for the soul of a community.

Diana Thung's debut Top Shelf graphic novel is a true adventure, rooted in the diverse local traditions of Asia and the films of Hayao Miyazaki, with a modern sensibility and a hint of magic.

UPSIDE DOWN: A VAMPIRE TALE by Jess Smart Smiley

-- 144 pages • 6" x 9" • $9.95 (US)
-- ISBN 978-1-60309-088-9 • All Ages
-- Deluxe softcover with french flaps • Two-color
-- In stores (and in stock) now!

"I really enjoyed Upside Down! It has a goofiness that reminds me of Joann Sfar, and the simplicity of its art is like a sophisticated version of Ed Emberley." -- Gene Luen Yang, author of American Born Chinese

Harold is a friendly young vampire who lives in a piano and LOVES candy. Pretty normal, huh? ...until he sets out for a dentist appointment that turns into the biggest adventure of his life! Now he'll face bats, witches, magic spells, vampire frogs, mad scientists, and so much more! It's a wild magical romp for all ages, perfect for Halloween or any time at all.

Upside Down is a spooky fun tale for all-ages and tweens, colored in black, white and Halloween green!
