New Book Releases: February 22 – February 28, 2023

Three new releases hit the shelves as we close out February.

Black Phoenix Vol. 1 by Rich Tommaso

Black Phoenix is, at its core, a contemporary comics magazine featuring original characters and stories of various comics genres–all dreamed up by its sole author, Rich Tommaso. Don’t be fooled by the pseudonyms inside–he changes names as often as drawing styles. But, the magazine is also like a walk through comics history itself. Each volume of these golden age, pulp styled digest anthologies is headed up by a long-form comics adventure which is backed up by a bunch of short-form comics–all in the same genre or flavor.


Out February 28, 2023!

Fatal Venture by Freeman Wills Crofts (Inspector French, 15)

When Morrison first heard of old Stott’s idea to purchase an ocean liner and run her as a tourist ship in sheltered waters off the British Isles, he was most enthusiastic. In fact, he accepted a job on board. But when he discovered the true purpose of Stott’s floating paradise, Morrison’s delight turned to foreboding. And when murder struck the vessel, he wasn’t alone. A certain Inspector from Scotland Yard had been travelling incognito, almost as if a nasty spot of trouble had been expected…


Paperback version of Fatal Venture out February 28, 2023.

Golden Ashes by Freeman Wills Crofts (Inspector French, 16)

The new Sir Geoffrey Buller is earning his living in Chicago when he unexpectedly inherits his title, an English baronetcy, and Forde Manor in Surrey, complete with its vast collection of priceless works of art. His widowed housekeeper, who knows a thing or two, is surprised to discover that Sir Geoffrey is having his pictures cleaned. But then disaster strikes! A devastating fire, a missing artist and a lot of insurance money – from a mosaic of detail, Inspector French must reconstruct the pattern of a most cunning and complex crime…
