Jim Henson’s Tale of Sand takes a once-lost screenplay by Henson and turns this story he never got to tell into one of the most beautiful and mesmerizing graphic novels ever created. Tale of Sand follows scruffy everyman, Mac, who wakes up in an unfamiliar town, and is chased across the desert of the American Southwest by all manners of man and beast of unimaginable proportions.
Picking this up for your #LateNightReads is sure to give your subconscious something to play with while you sleep.
For fans of: art, surrealism

↳The Midas Flesh #1 (of 8) by ryannorth, shelligator, and bradenlamb
It’s got space and science and dinosaurs and adventure, I don’t know what else you or your kids could ask for, really.
Fatima and her space crew have decided to return to Earth-a planet completely sectioned off, abandoned, and covered in gold-to find out exactly what happened to this once thriving planet and see if they can use that knowledge against the evil empire that’s tracking them down. As luck would have it, they just landed the most powerful weapon in the universe: some ancient dead guy’s body.

#ComicsForYourKids: Every Thursday Evening comiXology Unbound suggests a great comics to read with your kid!
Packin up my bags, boots n spurs for good ol TEXAS where I will be bringing you all the best announcements from the Geek Stage at SXSW Interactive. Here are the #NewComicDay books from this week I’m loading up on the trusty iPad for the long flight to the Lone Star State :
Moon Knight #1 - A strange take on the police procedural story; Moon Knight rises from the dead (again!). Ever since their run on Deadpool (The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly) I’ve been patiently waiting for more Shalvey/Bellaire art. Throw the legendary Warren Ellis into the mix and I’m frothing at the mouth.
Trillium #7 - The penultimate issue of Jeff Lemire’s time-and-space-traveling love story that is as emotionally disorienting as it is physically. If you haven’t been reading this, you’re really missing out.
Adventure Time: Seeing Red - kateordie! kateordie! kateordie! Oh man! I am such a fan of your tumblr and art and personality. So stoked that you wrote an Adventure Time OGN and I can’t wait to read it.
Evil Empire #1 - Another comic by my childhood hero maxbemis! I really have no idea what to expect from this, but Polarity was so much fun I can’t wait.
Afterlife With Archie #4 - No book has been more suprisingly awesome to me than Afterlife with Archie, and now with the announcement that Aguirre-Sacasa is the new Creative Officer of archiecomics I think some well-deserved congratulations is in order! CONGRATS!
Wild Blue Yonder #4 - It’s been a while since issue 3 came out, so it might take a re-read, but diving back into the story of post-apocalyptic dog fighting bad-assery that Wild Blue Yonder is will be more of a treat than anything!
Forever Evil #6 - JUST TELL ME WHAT HAPPENS TO DICK GRAYSON ALREADY!
Magneto #1 - Cullen Bunn has been ruling the alternate world of Deadpool for a while now, so I can’t wait to see what he can do with the more austere Magneto.
Check these out and all the other new releases available today on comiXology!
As an unabashed Say Anything fan, I implore you to all go read maxbemis' Polarity (clickhere clickhere!!). The you can get all four issues for just $4 from now until Sunday as part of our BOOM! Studios Originals sale.
Max, if you’re reading this, you and the rest of the band once drew me a custom poster featuring a mural of what you said would be the plot of Lost Season Three. It took place under the sea and featured Spongebob. Thanks for that <3.
