Down-on-his-luck Mafioso, Eddie Paretti is so desperate for cash he’s agreed to steal a dead body from his own mob boss! Things only get worse when he discovers the body isn’t human!
With few options and fewer people he can trust, Eddie calls on the man who raised him, Father McHugh. The priest tells Eddie that the body was stolen from his monastery by the Mafia. Father McHugh is accompanied by a beautiful woman Eddie swears looks just like a stripper he once fell in love with named Black Cherry.
Blending crime thriller with TENNAPEL’s utterly breath-taking brushwork, BLACK CHERRY is delicious.

TELL YOUR BOSS EXACTLY WHAT YOU THINK.
A lifetime marked with Napoleonic bosses has generated a rage in Boom that she can’t contain anymore – only aim. Her target? Her boss. That same day, Boom comes home to find an old friend standing on her fire escape. David’s double-crossed a drug dealer and he’s looking for help.
Boom tells him, “I can’t. I’ve given myself one day to make it all right or I’m just going to kill myself. What do you think of that?”
David smiles, “Chaos it is then. We’ll need coffee.”
FULL COLOR is an action-packed odyssey through New York. Fast-paced and thoughtful, compelling and funny, FULL COLOR is a revenge-fueled morality tale for a post-September 11th world.

Our boys, Emil and KD, are hot on the case of the escaped clone, but so is crazy-ass Lola and her crew. The two teams race for leads through the sprawl in an insane gun-blasting, car-thrashing hover chase into the murky depths of the dangerous lower city. Here in the mutant-filled, forgotten subterranean, our Repo teams come head to head with a well-armed army of angry clones, hell bent on saving their clone brother.
