The Kurdles by Robert Goodin - Excerpt
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under Robert GoodinpreviewsComing Attractions 23 Feb 2015 12:40 PM

Who or what are Kurdles? Are they man or beast—or something else entirely?

As it happens, Kurdles are the denizens of Kurdleton, and Sally the bear runs into them as she tries to find her way home after being separated from her owner. So begins this 60-page all ages tale, and we have here a 9-page, downloadable excerpt for your viewing pleasure. At a generous 8.75" by 12", the oversized format of The Kurdles allows you and your little ones to be fully immersed in the lush watercolor world that Robert Goodin has created, not to mention all the individual details that one can discover through rereadings.

The Kurdles is certain to become a fast favorite once it reaches bookstores in April, so make sure you pre-order your copy now!

Digital comics: comiXology presents two new graphic novels
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Wilfred SantiagoDylan Horrocksdigital comicscomiXology 19 Feb 2015 2:48 PM
Michael Jordan ipad
This week from comiXology you can now enjoy the finest graphic novels: Michael Jordan: Bull on Parade by Wilfred Santiago (21). A thrilling, kinetic bio-epic about Michael "Air" Jordan, the greatest basketball player of all time and most influential athlete in history, from the creator of the acclaimed and best-selling 21: The Story of Roberto Clemente. This tour de force explores Jordan's public successes and private struggles, with the depth of Santiago's passion for his subject shining through on every full-color page. Feel the sweat as you swipe for only $18.99!
 
"From a scuffle with Patrick Ewing in the book's opening pages to the titanic feat of multiple NBA Championships, this book breaths with potent comic book electricity, phrasing court pivots and jump-shots with the same bombast as celestial superhero brawls." –Sean Edgar, Paste Magazine  
Sam Zabel
In addition, you can also read Sam Zabel and the Magic Pen by Dylan Horrocks (Hicksville). Cartoonist Sam Zabel hasn't drawn a comic in years. Stuck in a nightmare of creative block and despair, Sam spends his days writing superhero stories for a large American comics publisher and staring at a blank piece of paper, unable to draw a single line. Then one day he finds a mysterious old comic book set on Mars and is suddenly thrown headlong into a wild, fantastic journey through centuries of comics, stories, and imaginary worlds. Accompanied by a young webcomic creator named Alice and an enigmatic schoolgirl with rocket boots and a bag full of comics, Sam goes in search of the Magic Pen, encountering sex-crazed aliens, medieval monks, pirates, pixies and - of course - cartoonists. Funny, erotic, and thoughtful, Sam Zabel and the Magic Pen explores the pleasures, dangers, and moral consequences of fantasy. This fantasy can be yours for the touch of a digital button

"This is a complicated, rich story about confronting the sometimes-lurid or nakedly obvious wish-fulfillment aspects of comic books, but it's also about the ways Sam's distress with the world can't be satisfied by other people's ideas of paradise." –Tasha Robinson, NPR

For the geek in us all, Geek Bar Beta is fostering a pretty rad and inclusive environment for whatever your flavor is; be it cosplayers wanting to find people for team-ups, trivia, board games (just like Seattle's FANTASTIC Café Mox), and movie screenings. Especially that MST3k screening Space Mutiny on February 24th, just saying, it's a really good one. And all of this can be enjoyed while feasting on some excellent cocktails, perhaps in the style of Doctor Who, and vittles.

Geek Bar Beta will be playing host to Lucy Knisley soon for a signing, details to come, but in the meantime you can enjoy it's growing comic book library and read a Fantagraphics book! Fanta books!

It's a good thing these advance copies of The Complete Eightball comes shrinkwrapped, else all our advance copies would be covered in drool by now! The long-awaited, painstakingly proofed, and completely perfected box set collecting all 18 issues of Daniel Clowes' influential Eightball comic series have arrived fresh from the printers. And it looks beautiful.

Two glossy hardcover volumes of roughly 280 pages each filled with extras, including brand new artwork by Clowes, are all wrapped up in a deluxe, sturdy slipcase cover with no detail spared! Look for our video and more photos soon. The Complete Eightball hits bookstores in May, but we fully anticipate that this box set will sell like hot cakes, so safer to pre-order now!
