Top Shelf Productions will publish the solo debut graphic novel by acclaimed cartoonist Hannah Templer (Jem and the Holograms, GLOW). Written, drawn, and colored by Templer, Cosmoknights is a thrilling galactic adventure set in a world where mech-suited warriors duel over the daughters of the aristocracy, and a fledgling resistance of lady knights aim to bring down the system from within.
Templer will serialize Cosmoknights on its own dedicated web site, www.cosmoknights.space, beginning in March 2019 (International Women's Month), leading to its print publication in Fall 2019. Many retailers are already taking online pre-orders, including Amazon, Barnes & Noble, IndieBound, Hudson Booksellers, and Penguin Random House — or you can speak to your local shop.

Pictures at a revolution: acclaimed graphic novelist James Albon (Her Bark and Her Bite) explores the role of the artist in a frighteningly familiar near-future of tyrannical regimes and popular revolts.
Francesca Saxon, artist and loyal citizen of the nation, is thrilled when she receives a commission to design the central mural of an epic new swimming pool: the jewel in the crown for an insecure regime obsessed by propaganda. Leaving the comfort of her coastal hometown for the lap of luxury of the capital, she is swept up in the paranoia of a government threatened by underground revolutionaries, whose promise of a freer, happier future looks increasingly appealing. Torn between rival factions and her personal loyalties, she realizes that when ideology has a stranglehold on art, the picture is rarely pretty.

With its second volume landing in bookstores everywhere this week, The Jekyll Island Chronicles is an award-winning series of alternate-history graphic novels, featuring an unlikely band of World War I veterans who continue to serve their country by battling an anarchist cabal in a post-war era of invention.
On the centennial of the end of that war, the creators and publishers of the series have prepared a very special way for readers to join in honoring the heroes of “The Great War.”
This Sunday marks the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I. In all that time, there has never been a national memorial in our capital dedicated to the millions who served and sacrificed. So as The Jekyll Island Chronicles brings new light to that era, the Top Shelf/IDW publishing family is proud to assist.
Through the end of 2018, a portion of every purchase of The Jekyll Island Chronicles, whether in print or digital, will go toward helping complete the National WWI Memorial in Washington, DC.
