Detective! Double Digest by Drew Lerman and Pete Faecke, $10. Digest size, 24 pages.

Two titans of American mini comics (and beloved favorites of this store) team up for something really spectacular. Lerman and Faecke are both natural storytellers, and in this flip book, they both try their hands at detective genre...but, as these are artists who never take the easy way out, the volume doesn't veer into nostalgia or pastiche. Instead, we have two ambitious cartoonists doing some of their most sustained narrative work. Fun stuff all around.
