Check out a preview of the new graphic novel from Avery Hill, which arrives in stores in May.
Nicole Goux has built a name for herself both as an independent force with comics like F*ck Off Squad and as a mainstream success with comics and graphic novels from DC Comics, Dark Horse, IDW and Simon & Schuster. Her latest graphic novel, Pet Peeves, started as an exercise in just creating something for herself, but has grown to be much more than that.
“Pet Peeves was meant to be a break from big projects at big companies,” Goux said. “It was a chance to stretch my writing muscles and to tell a story with no edits, no one telling me what do. Honestly, it was supposed to be much shorter than it is, just a quick story to refresh and re-inspire me between jobs, but I found that the story I wanted to tell needed more space and it grew into the full book that it is today.”
Pet Peeves is described as a horror graphic novel about a woman whose life is slowly being stolen away by “more sinister (though adorable) canine forces,” AKA the stray dog she adopts. Any puppy owner can probably identify with that statement. Courtesy of publisher Avery Hill, we’re pleased to present a preview of Pet Peeves, which arrives in stores at the end of May.

Check out exclusive previews for two new stories from Archie’s upcoming digest, which arrives in stores on March 22.
It’s time to hit the trail again with another preview from our friends at Archie Comics. World of Archie Jumbo Comics #128 will feature two new stories that guest star some classic characters, including the return of Nevada Jones.
“Roam on the Range” features the Golden Age cattle detective, who now works for Mr. Lodge on his ranch. In this story, Mr. Lodge tricks Archie into taking a job helping Nevada Jones with a cattle drive, which just seems like a horrible idea ll the way around. It’s by Ian Flynn, the Kennedy Brothers, Jim Amash, Glenn Whitmore and Jack Morelli.
The second story stars Pow-Girl, a character created by Jerry Siegel and Paul Reinman at the tail-end of the Silver Age in Mighty Comics #43. While her initial career was fairly short, Tom DeFalco, Dan Parent and Bob Smith revive her in a story where she tries to impress the Mighty Crusaders by teaming up with Archie’s superhero alter-ego, Pureheart the Powerful. Archie finds out the hard way that she packs a mean punch.
Check out the previews for both stories below, as well as a full reprint story with more fisticuffs by Frank Doyle and Harry Lucey.
