Holiday graphic novel special: “Santa Clowes and the Krampus”


We know how tricky it can be to get all the holiday shopping for both the nice and naughty columns of your list done. To help, we’re making it a little bit easier to find everything you need in one place with a (metaphorical) combination gift/coal special offer.

While supplies last, mention this post when you purchase one of the following Daniel Clowes graphic novels- Wilson, Ghost World Special Edition, The Death Ray or the Daniel Clowes Reader, and you will also receive a FREE Transformers movie tie-in graphic novel. It might be a prequel or a strait up adaptation of one of the films but you can be sure that the acting of the male lead on the page will surpass anything you may have seen on the big screen.

We can easily help you with more ideas for holiday gifts. If you’re struggling with the creation of a new idea and are worried about borrowing too heavily from what’s already been done, we recommend you pick up a copy of Lynda Barry’s WHAT IT IS.
