In this critically acclaimed manga, Yoshihiro Togashi tells the story of Gon Freecss as he leaves his home on Whale Island to follow in his father’s footsteps and become a Hunter.

In order to become a Hunter Gon, along with his new friends Kurapika, Leorio and Killua, must pass the arduous and dangerous Hunter Examination. With over 66 million copies sold in Japan alone, Hunter × Hunter has established itself as one of the most successful manga series ever made, and it all began with The Day of Departure.

July 2018

Saga of the Swamp Thing, Book 1

Saga of the Swamp Thing #20-27

DC Comics

Alan Moore, Stephen Bissette & John Totleben

Comic Selection #7

For his debut in US comics, renowned author and ramshackle warlock Alan Moore turned a formulaic and poorly-performing comic about a man turned into a swamp monster into a genre-busting, critically acclaimed examination of humanity unlike anything US readers had seen before. Set against a backdrop of horror, Saga of the Swamp Thing tackles environmental, political and social issues which remain unflinchingly relevant over 30 years after its debut.
