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.
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 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.
56-page black & white 8" x 10" softcover
