Dinosaur eggs hatch as MANOSAURS emerges in November
MANOSAURS VOL. 1: "Walk Like a Manosaur"
In stores November 21st!
EDITOR’S NOTE: Courtesy of PAPERCUTZ, we present this preview of MANOSAURS from their official press release:
We're proud to announce the release of MANOSAURS, an all-new graphic novel series that's adventurous and uproarious (emphasis on the "roar")!
Before we get to the preview, we want to share with you some awesome news: Patricia Lyfoung, the amazing writer and artist of THE SCARLET ROSE will be at New York Comic Con next weekend, where she'll sign books, take photos, and impart her wisdom on a couple panels--all in celebration of the launch of her wonderful book! And be sure to stop by the Papercutz table (R7 in Artist's Alley) and say hello!
In MANOSAURS VOL. 1: "Walk Like a Manosaur," Leo “the Doc” Jeffries is down on his luck with his rundown dinosaur museum, Dynamic Dino Display, until he unearths a box of bonafide dinosaur eggs! The eggs hatch four talking dinosaurs who rapidly adapt and grow into their new environment…the twenty first century! Now, Tri, Rex, Ptor, and Pterry must navigate life after extinction and defend their new family from forces of a dreaded enemy known as Armaggedon, who would like to make sure these powerful reptiles stay extinct.
Both prehistoric and modern, adventurous and comedic, MANOSAURS uses science and dinosaurs—an enduringly popular subject for kids—to tell a truly human tale!
Papercutz will release MANOSAURS VOL. 1: "Walk Like a Manosaur" in hardcover (ISBN: 9781629918143, $12.99) and paperback (ISBN: 9781629918136) on November 21.

SINK #3 (Comix Tribe, December 20, 2017 release date) “A Head Full Of Wasps”. Story by John Lees. Art and Colours by Alex Cormack. Letters by Shawn Lee. Logo by Tim Daniel. Sink #3 will make you see red. Blood red. It’s splashed all over the pages of this story, seeping into each and every panel, even before the violence begins. “A Head Full Of Wasps” speaks to the buzzing that occurs in so many brainpans in these troubled and violent times - - and the red that is visualized when some of us experience injustice, brutality, cruelty, or abuse and then seek retribution, revenge, and bloody justice. If only everyone could read this story, and then remember it whenever their cheeks flush with anger - - and think before they act. Yeah, I’m a pipe dreamer. I also just set out to write a review. Don’t know why I’m treating SINK #3 like this is a morality fable. Have you ever read a simple but well-written story that leads to your thinking outside the box about oth…
