New in the Birdcage Bottom Books shop:

Paul Hoppe’s “Tales To Behold #5”

Created under THE BEHOLDER persona, this fifth issue of the gonzo-superheroes series continues the mis-adventures of a very odd and random super-team that includes a living skeleton, a griffin, and an immortal knight. This volume marks the beginning of Season 2 of the BEHOLDER comics.

Our heroes are recovering from the earth-shattering developments that happened in the last couple books. But they don’t have much time for a breather, as their precious off-time gets rudely interrupted by some drug dealers with strange powers. And upon their return to the Big Apple, they get attacked by – their own shadows!

5.25″ x 8.25″, 40 pages. $7
2-color Risograph wraparound cover with b&w interior on cream paper

Dark Fairy Tales Video: Part 1

Behold, your childhood will be plagued!

Keep that in mind there were two different versions of any fairy tales like Sleeping Beauty: Charles Perrault and the Brothers Grimm.

Also, yes I know Hunchback of Notre Dame isn’t a fairy tale, but I did learn that it has dark stuff (even though I never read the book).
