Hermes Press, a mid-sized publishing company located in New Castle, Pennsylvania celebrates its 20th anniversary with the publication of Bill Holbrook and H.H. Glynn's first graphic novel, Dethany and the Other Clique. This GN is a light-hearted prequel featuring the strip's most popular character, set in a contemporary middle school. Its humor spoofs the restrictiveness of a school’s culture of cliques by taking its social strata to absurd extremes. Upper elementary and middle grades readers will enjoy the laughs along the way and cheer its ultimate celebration of individuality.
Bill Holbrook is the creator of the comic strips “On the Fastrack” and “Safe Havens” which are syndicated by King Features. In 1995 he began a new feature to take advantage of the storytelling possibilities of the online medium— “Kevin & Kell” which is now the Internet’s longest running daily webcomic.
H.H.Glynn is Bill's daughter, and a recent film school graduate who realized that her true (and first) love was drawing and developing characters in fictional worlds. She brings her keen eye--and sharp memory--to creating stories that reflect the joys and conflicts of middle school life.

COMING WINTER 2021
This deluxe hardcover includes a curated selection of Bob Scott's comic strip Bear with Me, presented for your enjoyment! There will be an introductory essay and never-before-seen art included in this beautiful book!
Molly has real-world problems; Bear has problems with the real world!
It can be tough being a tween. You want to do big things, change the world, and right some wrongs. But you also have to deal with math homework, getting enough sleep and the drama between your dad and pet bear. This is Molly’s world.
Being a tween is so much easier when your BFF is an 800 pound bear.
Bear is no ordinary bear. He sheds like a normal bear, he snores like a normal bear, but he is afraid of absolutely everything. Plus, he is allergic to fur. His own. But with Molly holding his paw, he can muddle through.
About the Creator:
Bob Scott lives in both the world of comic strips and animation. Born in Detroit, Bob began drawing at a young age, copying what he saw in the funny pages. Acceptance and graduation from California Institute of the Arts opened the world of character animation for Bob. He has worked over 35 years in the industry as an animator, character designer, storyboard artist and voice talent. His credits can be found on projects from Warner Brothers’ Bugs Bunny in Box Office Bunny (1990), Turner Animation’s Cat’s Don’t Dance and Pixar’s The Incredibles. He has worked for Jim Davis, co-penciling U.S. Acres and co-directing Garfield: His 9 Lives. Bob has always wanted a comic strip of his own, and so Bear with Me (aka Molly and the Bear) was born and became a syndicated webcomic in 2010.

War doesn't determine who is right. War determines who is left! Major Cobus Claassens commands a team of 150 mercenaries contracted to bring stability to the war-torn West African country of Sierra Leone. Battling overwhelming odds, Cobus and his men train and fight alongside a small contingent of soldiers against a murderous band of 15,000 rebel fighters bent on genocide. But, no amount of soldiering has prepared the men for the vicious arena of butchery, treachery, and mounting political pressure they experience while trying to do what is just. What difference does winning make if they lose their humanity in the process? Based on a true story by the Director and Producer of the 4x LEO award-winning documentary about mercenaries, Shadow Company, with a script written by M. Zachary Sherman (America's Army), and art by Emmanuel Xerx Javier (Nightbreed), Executive Outcomes is a politically charged, action-packed story that captures the real-life events of a few good men accomplishing impossible deeds.

Long ago in March of 2019, a gothic young woman had an idea. It was, perhaps, a lazy idea, but aren't all the best ones? After all, lazy is just another word for efficient.
And thus, a comic idea was born...The Lazy Goth! The Lazy Goth explores the particular struggles of being an unmotivated goth in a world of motivated people.
