Avoid the Hyatt.
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under misc 18 Jul 2008 9:04 AM
If you're attending Comic-Con next week and looking for a place to drink, fuck the Hyatt. There are about 1700 better, cheaper places to drink in downtown San Diego, anyway. I liked Tom Spurgeon's take on this controversy this morning. Oh, and if you live in Oklahoma, please don't vote for this asswipe. If so, you'll be supporting lousy cartooning on top of bigotry.
Hidden Gems Sale spotlight: Chris Lanier
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under sales specials 17 Jul 2008 11:00 PM

Every day in July we're 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!

Today's installment features the compelling 1999 debut from Chris Lanier.

Combustion by Chris Lanier

Combustion

Combustion is a striking visual parable on War, drawn in an expressionistic woodcut style. This mature, poetic work by newcomer Chris Lanier holds its own with such best-selling and critically acclaimed graphic novels as Maus and Palestine. Elegant and subversive, at times harrowing, Combustion will intrigue and enlighten with its stark, chiaroscuro visuals and compelling story of a soldier lost in a ravaged country.
