Ward is a grumpy gnome who only wants to be left alone. He never asked for company… but when his beautiful forest starts filling up with animals, it’s more than just grumpiness that makes him nervous. Mysterious muck-trolls and terrifying humans are invading, and he’ll need all the help he can get to defend Ward’s Valley.

Bobby Curnow (Night of 1000 Wolves, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) and Brenda Hickey (My Little Pony) team up for an all-new adventure full of charm, color, and surprising depth.

SH*T MY PRESIDENT SAYS gallery show at Mar-A-Lago!

January 10, 2018 / More →


Shannon Wheeler's been involved in some nutty schemes before — but this one takes the cake. "The most beautiful piece of chocolate cake you've ever seen," maybe.

Tonight in West Palm Beach, Florida, Shannon unveils the first ever gallery exhibit for his bestselling book Sh*t My President Says: The Illustrated Tweets of Donald J. Trump. The show runs for the next month at Gallery EmKo, just across the water from Mar-A-Lago, the so-called "Winter White House." Maybe POTUS will stop by and get a look at his cartoon self?

As the Washington Post said, "Wheeler’s Trump is a rotund scamp with a mischievously fiendish spirit... instead of slinging mud that can turn matters opaque, he’s actually attempting to render a window into Trump."

Visit EmKo tonight for the launch party or stop by anytime through February 10th. For more info on Sh*t My President Says (including some of Wheeler's favorite cartoons), visit its official site at sh-tmypresidentsays.com!

Top Shelf is thrilled to unveil the triumphant return of artist, rock star, storyteller, and Vermont's first Cartoonist Laureate James Kochalka in an all-new graphic novel for adult readers!

Two lovable dirtbag teens, tired of being bullied, build a robot battle suit to take revenge on their entire high school. But they never expected to become… kind of popular?

Mechaboys combines Kochalka's elegant cartooning, wild imagination, and embarrassing memories to create a high school comedy for the modern age — something like a Charlie Brown special remixed with Superbad, Mean Girls and Iron Man.

Packed with frustrated teens, slam-bang plot twists, and moments of genuine sweetness, Mechaboys is a thrilling new direction for Kochalka and an unmissable graphic novel event.
