Hidden Gems Sale spotlight: Penny Van Horn
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under sales specials 28 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!

The subject of today's spotlight, Penny Van Horn, cut her teeth in the Weirdo and Twisted Sister anthologies.

Recipe for Disaster by Penny Van Horn

Recipe for Disaster

"The secret was revealed to me by Carl Jung, and was further illuminated by Sigmund Freud, Herman Hesse, Patti Smith, David Bowie, and Sylvia Plath. Laugh if you must at this cast of characters, but at this ripe intersection in my life, their combination became my personal recipe for disaster..." So begins Van Horn's amazing graphic novella, a collection of short stories and vignettes, mostly autobiographical, part mystical exploration, depicting incidents from the author's life, as well as those of her friends, neighbors and relatives. The title story is an intense autobiographical account of her nervous breakdown which is alternately riotous and terrifying. Van Horn uses her trademark painstaking scratchboard style for every page, giving the book a shockingly intense visual look.

Ditch Your SBC Global Email Account.
Written by Jacob Covey | Filed under miscellany 28 Jul 2008 10:44 AM

Just a Public Service Announcement, here, but I recommend you ditch your SBC Global email account if you have one. Long story, but there's a good chance that (for weeks now) you're not getting email from some people. People like me. Even if I've written you many times before. And should you mention this to SBC they'll give you the runaround that it's being fixed. But it's not. 

And in some cases I have no other way to reach you so I'm getting very frustrated that SBC are such A*holes because I'm not going to attempt to figure out all the convoluted info they want me to fill out about my server and whatever else just so I can file a complaint and get my email through to you.

We now return you to the Flog, already in progress.

Hidden Gems Sale spotlight: Henriette Valium
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under sales specials 27 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 spotlight is on the artist known as Henriette Valium, who is also known as Montreal's "godfather of punk comics."

Primitive Cretin by Henriette Valium

Primitive Cretin

Disgusting! Awesome! Baffling! Astounding! Hilarious! These are just a few of the adjectives that describe the hypnotically weird stories and artwork of Quebec cartoonist Henriette Valium, seen previously in several issues (and on one memorable cover) of Zero Zero. Amazingly, this is the first mass-market solo Valium comic ever, so we pulled out all the stops with an Acme Novelty Library-sized deluxe package that showcases Valium's mind-bogglingly detailed pages. Primitive Cretin will have fans of Dave Cooper, Glenn Head, and Kim Deitch, among others, clamoring for more!

Blake Bell is the subject of Tom Spurgeon's weekly interview feature this morning, and it might be the best (and longest) interview with Blake that I've read yet. If you like Ditko, a must read.
