At last, all of Tony Millionaire's “Sock Monkey” stories (to date) are collected between two covers — and what covers they are, thanks to designer Jacob Covey — in one omnibus compendium. Sock Monkey Treasury swings into stores in February.
Our downloadable excerpt comprises one complete story and then some. In “Heaven,” Uncle Gabby makes a celestial discovery and enlists Mr. Crow to help him investigate. Will their expedition lead to paradise or folly? Plus, a chunk of the full-color “Uncle Gabby” story to marvel at, and the Table of Contents for your information.

We’re pleased to present the enigmatic prologue to Nijigahara Holograph by Inio Asano as a free, downloadable preview. After a flash of disparate images (butterflies, twin babies, a notebook, a tunnel, a headless animal, a falling or floating body), the scene opens in a hospital as a young man attends to his ailing father, then meets a mysterious old man outside who seems to know him. A couple of quick scene shifts — a man in a lonely apartment, a couple having sex, a man interviewing a woman — and we flash back to a sad but curious schoolgirl, a found corpse, a schoolyard confrontation, a spooky vision, and a heart-stopping incident. How do they all tie together? Why don’t you pre-order the book and find out when it comes out in February?
Here is the 2nd in a series of creative explorations made collaboratively by Stefan Gruber, Theo Ellsworth, Andrice Arp, Sean Christensen A.B.T, & Vida Rose whilst together over 4 days for the Short Run Small Press Fest.
In the future it is thought that there could be a collected book of the works. That is if you all out there in the universe would be into such a thing? For now you can enjoy them here at Gridlords as they appear.

As part of our ongoing Our Fashion Year series, Melissa Mendes and Anne Elizabeth Moore created Zoned for Truthout in November. It’s one of the most popular comics we’ve done for Truthout, partially because it goes deep on a little-known part of the American import system, the Foreign Trade Zone. Also because Melissa did a totally kick-ass job on it, and it looks amazing.
You can read all the Ladydrawers comics here, of course.
