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!

Image for Just announced for March 2019: Siblings save the world in Jarod Roselló's RED PANDA & MOON BEAR!

Two Latinx kids battle supernatural threats to their working-class neighborhood with the power of science, magic, and a pair of very special hoodies.

Red Panda and Moon Bear are the defenders of their community! Together, these brave siblings rescue lost cats, scold bullies, and solve mysteries, all before Mamá and Papá get home. But lately... the mysteries have been EXTRA mysterious. All of RP and MB's powers may not be enough to handle spooks, supervillains, alien invaders, and time warps! It'll take all their imagination — and some new friends — to uncover the secret cause behind all these events before the whole world goes crazy.

In his first book for young readers, Cuban-American cartoonist Jarod Roselló presents a whimsical and tender-hearted adventure, packed with Saturday-morning adventure and glowing with Caribbean sunshine.

Hispanic/Latinx kids make up about 25% of US students and growing, yet almost no comics or graphic novels focus on their experience. We are thrilled to introduce Jarod Roselló's exuberant young heroes to readers everywhere!
