Hidden Gems Sale spotlight: Andrew Zaben
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under sales specials 29 Jul 2008 11:00 PM

Every day in July we've been spotlighting books from our month-long Hidden Gems Sale, wherein we're featuring some of our under-the-radar backlist titles and encouraging you to try them by offering them at a nice discount of 25% off! The sale is ending, so now is your last chance to take advantage of these great savings!

Today we present our final spotlight, featuring two realistic, character-driven books by Andrew Zaben.

Dream Big Dreams by Andrew Zaben

Dream Big Dreams

A promising 100-page debut novel, Dream Big Dreams is a complex narrative about a local bar owner grappling with the decision of whether to sell out to a big chain. The Lower Depths is a secluded basement tavern where locals congregate to discuss socialism and other philosophical concerns. When the owner contemplates selling to a corporation whose sincerity regarding maintaining the bar's integrity is in question, the idealistic regulars resist and decide to take matters into their own hands. Dream Big Dreams is a rarity among debut works: a compelling story rich with thoughtful observations on contemporary society, with well-developed characterizations that slowly come together over the novel's dense 100 pages.

100-page black & white 6.5" x 10.25" softcover

Queens Blvd. by Andrew Zaben

Queens Blvd.

Black humor and strong characterization defines this realistic (but fictional) look at a day in the lives of three bookies as they deal with the everyday hassles of living in search of a mildly dishonest buck.

My favorite con pic so far.

From Publishers Weekly's "PW Comics Week." The Hernandez Dynasty: Gilbert, Natalia, and Unca Jaime. As Tom Spurgeon put it this morning, "My friends and I make jokes that everything always comes back to the Hernandez Brothers, but it does." Except now it comes back to the Hernandez Brothers... and Daughters!

BWS' Eisner speech
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Untagged  29 Jul 2008 12:54 PM
Blogger Alan David Doane has run the entire transcript of Barry Windsor-Smith's acceptance speech for the Hall of Fame Award he received last Friday night at the Eisners. The speech turned some heads with lines like "[Work-for-hire is] a legal but unethical instrument designed to rape and plunder young talents," and was read by our own Gary Groth (BWS could not attend the con). Congratulations to BWS' award, and kudos for his candor.

Comicon Post-Mortems
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Untagged  29 Jul 2008 10:23 AM

Since I didn't go to Comic-Con this year, I had to enjoy the show vicariously through the blogosphere. My favorite report so far has been this morning's report from Tom Spurgeon at the Comics Reporter. Tom is funny, trenchant, critical, constructive, and his piece elicits the only appropriate reaction possible from such a piece: it simultaneously makes me sorry I missed it and grateful for the chance to enjoy the gorgeous Seattle summer. This quote in particular, about Gary Groth accepting on behalf of several cartoonists at the Eisner Awards, made me laugh: "Gary also always spoke in terms of the privilege of working with the artists in question. He was terrific, and made me feel good about working in comics... My point is, when a professional agitator like Gary is the classiest, most reverential guy in the room, you know comics has some issues."

Speaking of Gary, I loved this pic/caption from the Drawn & Quarterly blog this morning:  

I was also grateful for Heidi MacDonald's liveblogging from the Eisners on Friday night to further help me through my Comic-Con DTs this weekend. I'm still pissed I missed Samuel L. Jackson.
