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.

Wrightson’s name was synonymous with the best the horror comics genre had to offer and he often spoke of the lasting influence EC comics titles such as the original TALES FROM THE CRYPT and VAULT OF HORROR had on his work.So, it seems only appropriate that two of Wrightson’s stories are included in Super Genius’ new revival of the TALES FROM THE CRYPT series.Issue #2 (in comic shops this Wednesday) features two “lost classics” from Wrightson, “Stake Out” and “Feed It!”, both appearing in color for the first time. The two stories had originally appeared in black and white in other publications but when CRYPT editor Jim Salicrup rem…
It was a cold night, but it didn’t stop the faithful from spending some time on the main drag in Oxford PA for the monthly First Friday celebration. This month, the theme was Super-Heroes and employees (and sometimes customers) at several establishments went along with the theme and dressed appropriately. (We had our Batman tee shirt underneath our sweater but spared the innocent, only flashing it to friends.) It was the perfect theme for the recently opened MAROON HORNET COMICS shop at 45 South Third Street in Oxford. Owner Randy Grace employed the mercenary-for-money Deadpool as a store greeter, and local writer Greg Cox was in attendance, signing his new book. The store is fully stocked now, and has an impressive assortment of comics, games, posters, and related toys and accessories. Randy and Lori Grace are very friendly and happy to be able to provide a comics outlet in Oxford for local pop culture fans.Greg Cox is a best-selling author, who’s earned a deserved rep…
