When Wrinkle’s Traveling Circus’s adorable little bearded girl trades a lock of her magic beard hair for a witch’s strange egg, she stumbles upon what could be the saving grace for her ailing freak show–the savory-named beast Chimichanga!

The Amazing Screw-On Head and Other Curious Objects

Originally published at Comic Book Daily under my Bound Together column. I’m a big Mike Mignola fan, admiring his work since Marvel Fanfare.  The Amazing Screw-On Head was a one shot comic published in 2002 but somehow I missed it…

Grandville by Bryan Talbot

Heard some rumblings on the internet about a new animal graphic novel; lots of interest but most wanted to flip through the book before committing.  At my local comic shop they had one copy of Grandville: after a quick perusal…
