I'm Not Single, I Have a Dog

I'm Not Single, I Have a Dog Book
Once upon a time in America, marriage was the norm. But now, for the first time since the Bureau of Labor Statistics began tracking these numbers in 1976, there are more single Americans than married — a total of about 50.2%, or 124.6 million American adults are single.

Just as the single life overtakes marriage in the United States, a new book from McFarland Publishers hits the market. I'm Not Single, I Have a Dog: Dating Tales From The Bark Side is the perfect holiday gift for singles, anyone who ever dated the wrong person (and who hasn’t?), and the 63.4 million Americans who love their dogs. Celebrating the human/canine bond, this thoughtful and funny memoir is about acceptance, love, and finding your own happily ever after.

Sir Edward Grey: Acheron - Written and Illustrated by Mike Mignola

Dark Horse Mike Mignola Sir Edward Grey Acheron 01

For the first time in five years, legendary Hellboy creator Mike Mignola is both writing and illustrating a full length comic book, one which provides the next chapter in the fabled Hellboy Universe. Titled Sir Edward Grey: Acheron, the one shot story is set following the events of B.P.R.D.: The Devil You Know, in which the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense managed to fight off the monsters on earth long enough for humanity to barely escape underground. The story is Mignola’s first full length comic book since Dark Horse Comics published Hellboy in Hell in 2016; here he reunites with award-winning colorist Dave Stewart, as well as letterer and longtime collaborator Clem Robbins. Dark Horse Comics will publish Sir Edward Grey: Acheron this winter, featuring a main cover by Mignola and Stewart and a variant cover by acclaimed artist Ben Stenbeck and Stewart.
