Doggie Style – The Complete Dog Boy by Steve Lafler – 488 pages

Paperback  Edition – $29.99

Hard Cover Edition – $49.99

Imagine an enthusiastic, ambitious young artist of the 1980s who happens to have an enormous golden retriever head on a human body. Given to flights of fancy and the odd meditation on the truly mundane, this Dog Boy searches for meaning, all too often via a six pack of Rainer Ale pounders!

Steve Lafler sat down from 1882 to 1988 and drew nearly 500 pages of Dog Boy. Most of the time, he drew with no script, and in fact looked to emptying his mind before putting pencil to bristol board.

The entire results are collected here in in the 488 page omnibus, DOGGIE STYLE The Complete DOG BOY! Now you can pay witness to the genius that flowed from Steve’s streaming consciousness as he created one of the most truly independent comic works of all time!

NOTE: Content intended for MATURE readers.

HEAVEN And DEAD CITY Cover

Heaven and the Dead City by Raine Szramski – 64 pages

Paperback  Edition – $14.99

Hard Cover Edition – $24.99

There is nothing alive anymore in the Dead City – or is there? Two cities: one dead… …the other, vibrant and alive. But for Palus, the supposedly enlightened city of Zivvon was dead in a different way. Their intolerance of earth magick in favor of the intangible church-sanctioned magic of heaven weighed heavily on him. After all, Palus had been born a witch. Two cities: one beautiful and flourishing… …the other, not quite as dead as it would seem. Yaira knows this as well as anyone. It wasn’t safe to linger within the walls of Tac. Her mother had made that mistake and paid the price for it. Her father had warned her – Get in, get what we need and get out! But Yaira had inherited her mother’s curiosity. And now something in the Dead City was growing curious of her.

Ménage à BUGHOUSE by Steve Lafler – 408 pages

Paperback  Edition – $24.99

Hard Cover Edition – $39.99

Ménage à BUGHOUSE collects the funky jazz noir BUGHOUSE trilogy by Steve Lafler in one volume.

Tenor saxophone maestro, Jimmy Watts, leads his talented band of bugs from the swing era into the uncharted maelstrom of Bop. And as he and his band mates claw their way to the top of the jazz world, they must fight the temptation to be consumed by addiction to a substance known as “Bug Juice”.

NON by Chris Kalnick - 52 pages

Paperback Only – $14.99

This collection of the comic strip NON, The Transcendental Extraterrestrial by Chris Kalnick will tickle your soul. NON’s unique perspective of our humanity is a window through which we gain profound insight through the sheer simplicity of his observations. This little alien is a teacher and his thoughts are inspiring. NON’s epilog, A Sensory Neuron’s Quandary, will redefine life’s purpose for those seeking a pointed answer.

52 pages of powerfully, humorous, light-hearted introspection that is beautifully drawn by Kalnick will satisfy your need to be one with the universe but will have you begging for more NON adventures.

The Adventures of ROMA by John Workman – 98 pages

Paperback  Edition – $19.99

Hard Cover Edition – $29.99

This 98 page graphic novel is created by John Workman, whose extensive experience in the comic book field is evident in every panel. Workman introduces us to ROMA, a woman of mystery…even to herself… as she finds life, death , love, and perhaps mankind’s final redemption in this fantasy/science fiction graphic novel. ROMA is the story of a girl who is so much more than merely super-human!

Beautiful art, compelling story and haunting questions make ROMA irresistible.

Captain Obese Cover

The Heavy Adventures of Captain Obese by Don Lomax – 108 pages

Paperback  Edition – $19.99

Hard Cover Edition – $29.99

The Heavy Adventures of CAPTAIN OBESE. Originally published by WARP GRAPHICS in the late 1980s. The comic has always been near and dear to Don’s heart since looking at CAPTAIN OBESE for him is like looking in a mirror. The comic collected some flack from the whining politically correct crowd back when it was first published but who other than a morbidly obese artist should depict a morbidly obese super hero? That was back in the days when everybody was thin. Today? CAPTAIN OBESE is the norm.

CO2 Comics Doubles Its Catalog of Creator Owned Graphic Albums

Tuesday, July 2nd, 2013

CO2 Comics knows how to celebrate the Fourth of July as an Independent comics publisher. We release creator owned graphic albums! For the second year in a row, CO2 Comics has launched three graphic albums to accompany the first two volumes of David Anthony Kraft’s COMICS INTERVIEW The Complete Collection in our ever growing and respectable catalog.

Redefining Independence Day as Independent Comics Day, Bill Cucinotta and I celebrate our fourth year anniversary of the web comic collective www.co2comics.com and our heritage as long-time independent comics publishers having been two of the founding partners of Comico, an influential independent comics publisher of the ’80s and ’90s.

Last year’s release of three books, in print, Heaven and the Dead City by Raine Szramski, The Heavy Adventures of Captain Obese! by Don Lomax and Ménage à Bughouse by Steve Lafler set a precedent for quality that was well received by critics and reminiscent of CO2 Comic’s publishing legacy.

This year’s offerings continue the tradition of excellence and stand as a testimony to the relationship between creators rights and independent publishing as all three new titles, though previously published, are exclusively owned by the respective creators. They are evidence that intellectual property can be a continued source of potential revenue for the original creators and that rights do not need to be lost to unscrupulous work for hire contracts.

Once more CO2 Comics taps the wellspring of talent that populates our website with serialized features that update weekly by migrating the digital content into beautifully packaged printed books. All books are available immediately, sold directly through the following links and shipped directly from the press to your door.

Check the following brief descriptions and imagine how great a complete collection of CO2 Comics creator owned graphic albums will look on the shelves of any esteemed comic library!

Beautiful art, compelling story and haunting questions make ROMA irresistible and prove why John Workman has managed to work for nearly every publisher that has ever made comics in the last forty years.  John continues to make his mark on the history of the medium  by helping CO2 Comics establish its noteworthy catalog.

CO2 Comics may be the best kept secret in the comics industry, now having published nearly 2,600 pages of comics and comic related material in their first eight books.  Jump on the bandwagon now and lead the parade celebrating Independent Comics Day with CO2 Comics.
