BONEYARD, Volume 6
By RICHARD MOORE
Trade paperback, 7" x 11", 96 pages, black-and-white interior art, color cover, $9.95, ISBN 978-1-56163-510-8
In this book, which collects Boneyard #21-24, Abbey attends a posh party where she must make a good impression with the Illuminary, head of all fantastic creatures. But when she heads with Michael into her private meeting with the Illuminary, arch-rival Lilith slips her a mickey that makes her act uncontrollably badly!
Here's what the press has been saying about Boneyard:
"Boneyard has been consistent pure fun. It's got action, miles of comedy, a wonderfully written potential romance between Michael and Abbey, and it's slowly adding weight and consequence. Boneyard is a gem that deserves fame and acclaim. If you like humor, if you like horror, hell, if you like comics, pick up Boneyard." - Newsarama
"Well rendered, witty tale. Recommended for teens and adults." - Library Journal
"A series garnering great word of mouth and increasing sales based on pure craftsmanship and enjoyment. The real hooks are Moore's terrific drawing style and spot on comic timing."- Troy Brownfield, Comicon.com/Pulse
"It's simply a delight." - Andrew Smith, Scripps-Howard papers
"Everything a comic about friendly monsters should be. Moore's strength is his ear for dialogue and timing." - Publishers Weekly

Raves for Nowak's first book, Unholy Kinship:

"She's clearly a gifted artist, a very good debut, literate and thoughtful, and I look forward to more from this talented creator." - Marc Mason, Comicswaitingroom.com
"Nowak is clearly a talent who will bear watching. She creates several interesting characters, knows how to establish a strong premise, and she's not afraid to follow a number of interesecting story lines. Most importantly, she is completely fearless about describing her character's difficult emotional states." - Publishers Weekly
