Vincent is spiraling down the drain, circling himself with no clue of what direction his life should take. He has already abandoned the woman he loved and their newborn child he never met, frightened of the responsibility of fatherhood. That's too much like growing up. But now, with nothing in his life but a barfly drinking buddy named Gaby Rocket, he's ready to finally fix himself and make things right. And that all starts with a bank truck heist . . .   But for Vincent, it's not about the money. He sees an opportunity to do something noble and good in the midst of this crime: reunite the bank truck's driver with his estranged gay son, and even secretly reward them both with half of the stolen money. Unfortunately, Gaby isn't completely on board with that noble end goal, focusing more on the treasure that could set them up for life.   As can be expected, things don't go as planned for anyone involved. Old ghosts and ingrained social mores pop out of every corner to complicate matters, not only in the execution of Vincent's grand Robin Hood plan, but in his and Gaby's lives as dyed-in-the-wool loners.   A character-driven crime thriller in the proud tradition of Martin Scorsese and the Coen Brothers, where the caper itself is just the framework for an engaging and engrossing set of character studies, written by award-winning author Wilfrid Lupano and illustrated by DreamWorks animator Rodolphe Guenoden.

Maia's intensely cathartic autobiography charts eir journey of self-identity, which includes the mortification and confusion of adolescent crushes, grappling with how to come out to family and society, bonding with friends over erotic gay fanfiction, and facing the trauma and fundamental violation of pap smears.

After three years in Milan, Matteo returns home to the provincial country town where he was born and from which he had fled. Coming out as a young gay man in a provincial country town had led to ugly clashes with his conservative father, and the urban metropolis of Milan had been a welcome change from the stifling small town life of his childhood and the anger and bewilderment of some members of his family. But now, Matteo finds himself with little choice but to return home, with no money, no job, and an uncertain future, like so many other young people of his millennial generation. Afraid of encountering his estranged father, he instead takes refuge with his extended family, at a house shared by his grandmother, three aunts, and his very pregnant cousin. As he tries to rebuild his life, reconnecting with the women of his family and old hometown friends, he warily confronts a few truths about the other generations of his family--from their bigotry to their love, and tolerance, and acceptance--and a few truths about himself, including his fears of confrontation and commitment.

Puerto Rico Strong is a comics anthology that explores what it means to be Puerto Rican and the diversity that exists within that concept, from today's most exciting Puerto Rican comics creators. All profits will go to towards disaster relief and recovery programs to support Puerto Rico. Despite being a US territory, Puerto Rico is often thought of as a foreign land, if it's even a thought in the mind of the average American at all. Its people exist in all corners of America; some of them have parents who immigrated from the home island, others are a part of families that have been on the mainland for generations. Then there are those who have come to the states in search of a dream but struggle to integrate into an unfamiliar culture, while there are those who have lived in the United States all of their lives but still have the same struggle because of the color of their skin or their sexual identity. These stories follow individuals from diverse walks of life but are all part of the culture that is Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico Strong features art and writing by Rosa Colon, Vita Ayala, Naomi Franquiz, Javier Cruz Winnik, Sabrina Cintron, Ronnie Garcia, Fabian Nicieza, Joamette Gil, and many more!
