Nelson looks up to Nick and his mad BMX skills. But when a rough crash keeps Nick out of the BMX-Treme Competition, he suggests that Nelson take his place. However, Nelson doesn't think he has what it takes to compete against the best racers in the city - especially Nick's nemesis, Cain Otto. Can Nelson shift gears and muster the courage and strength of Major Speed to compete in the race? Combining a high-stakes sports story with a dynamic full-color comic format, this graphic novel is sure to be a win for young athletes and struggling readers alike.

Leo wasn't allowed toys as a kid, but now that he's all grown up he's going to take yours. He used to play by the rules, but then governments and corporations set fire to the rules and still expected him to behave. He probably would have if it hadn't been for his new friend Jerry. See, Jerry isn't human; he's a personalised marketing VR... and he's malfunctioning. Unhinged ultraviolence from Alex Paknadel (Arcadia) and Martin Simmonds (Punks Not Dead).

And That’s Not All….!!

This list doesn’t even touch all of the Manga, new Hardcover Editions, Trade Paperbacks (collections of comic books in one bound edition), or Graphic Novels (complete original story not featured in a monthly) – not to mention all of the toys, statues, and apparel that come out every month! That would be at least 7 more of these articles, every month! I'm just going to stick to comics for now. If you are interested in finding out about all of the rest (and get yours before they sell out!), just come on down to the shop for an in-depth look in the Previews book, or take one home for about $4 - which also gets you a free copy of Image+ (normally $2). While you are in for a visit, don’t forget to set up your subscription or pre-order. You can even pre-fill a form at home and drop it by.  Stop by at least once a month to check out the new stuff and pick up your subscription…
