Six new titles from Top Shelf Productions are especially recommended to the attention of comix and graphic novel enthusiasts. Rick Koslowski's "The King" (1891830651, $19.95) is a unique story of an enigmatic Elvis impersonator who's making his reputation in the Vegas strip and in the world. A mystery man who hides his face behind a golden helmet, his performances are mesmerizing, so much so that his fans start believing he really is Elvis Presley. When a former tabloid journalist makes it his personal mission to find out The King's true identity and debunk this strange performer's comeback as Elvis, he runs into more than he bargained for! Alex Robinson's "Tricked" (1891830732, $19.95) follows the lives of six unusual people in a story structure that is as complex as it is innovated! Also by Alex Robinson, a new edition of "Box Office Poison" (1891830198, $29.95) is a 608-page graphic novel for the mature reader with its themes of dreary jobs, comic books, love, sex, messy apartments, girlfriends, undisclosed pasts, and crusty old professionals. Aaron Reiner's "Spiral-Bound" (1891830503, $14.95) is a deftly drawn and written graphic novel featuring memorable and occasionally outrageous ensemble cast. Part of his "Girlfriend Trilogy", Jeffrey Brown's "AEIOU" (1891830716, $12.00 explores the subtleties of relationships with emphasis on the differences between knowing someone and loving them. The collaboration of Robert Venditti and Brett Weldele, "The Surrogates" is the first issue of a five part science fiction action/adventure miniseries for mature readers. Set in 2054, life has been reduced to a data feed. There has been a fusion of virtual reality and cybernetics. It's a perfect world where it's no longer necessary to leave home. But it's also a world of techno-terrorists and detectives Harvey Greer and Pete Ford of the Metro Police Department must stop them before they ruin a "perfect world".
