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.

George Takei presents THEY CALLED US ENEMY to school librarians

November 1, 2018 / More →

A few days ago, legendary actor, activist, and author George Takei visited New York to deliver the keynote address at School Library Journal's 14th annual Leadership Summit.

Speaking to a rapt audience of key figures from schools and libraries around the United States, Takei narrated his wrenching firsthand experience in childhood as one of 120,000 Japanese Americans forced into internment camps during World War II. Takei also explored the complex lessons of patriotism and civic engagement passed down by his father, the duty of all Americans to stand up for our ideals, and his hopes for They Called Us Enemy to both educate and inspire new generations with the lessons of the past.

"Next year, we will put it in your hands, you librarians, to build the future of America, to inform the young people who will become the leaders of our future that we have a glorious history... but we should also be mindful of some of the horrible mistakes that we made," he said. "As Americans, we all have a responsibility to build a better America."

They Called Us Enemy is currently in preparation for release in Summer 2019, but some retailers are already beginning to offer pre-orders — including Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Hudson Booksellers, and the IndieBound network of independent bookstores.

For the full story on Takei's address to the SLJ Leadership Summit, see this article.

BELZEBUBS: Juggling work and family can be… hell.

October 12, 2018 / More →


Calvin & Hobbes meets Call of Cthulhu as the sensationally popular heavy metal webcomic BELZEBUBS comes to your bookshelf in a grim, goofy, and gorgeous hardcover.

Belzebubs is a “trve kvlt mockumentary” focusing on the everyday challenges of family life: raising kids, running a small business, and making time for worship. Except the kids are named Lilith and Leviathan, the business is a black-metal band, and the worship… isn’t exactly aimed upstairs.

In a few short years, what started out as improvised social-media doodles has now become a wildly successful webcomic with hundreds of thousands of fans. The irresistible cartooning of JP Ahonen (Sing No Evil) combines relatable slice-of-life humor with over-the-top occult antics and references from metal music to Lovecraftian horror, making Belzebubs a devil of a good time.

See what Belzebubs' quarter-million frenzied Facebook fans have been raving about!

PLUS: watch for the official Belzebubs soundtrack album, coming in early 2019 from the world’s largest heavy metal record label, Century Media!
