Sweatshop by Peter Bagge - Excerpt
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under previewsPeter BaggeComing Attractions 24 Nov 2014 12:45 PM

In award-winning artist Peter Bagge's Sweatshop, Mel Bowling is a an out-of-touch cartoonist with a studio full of slave workers assistants who must cater to his every whim. When Bowling receives a letter informing him that he has been nominated for the "Ham Fisher Award," his arrogance and ego fly through the roof, much to the chagrin of his studio assistants.

Sweatshop is due to arrive in stores in February, but you can (and should) pre-order this first-time collection of Bagge's six-issue series now.

Saint Cole by Noah Van Sciver - Cover

We are pleased to reveal for you the final cover design for Ignatz-nominated cartoonist Noah Van Sciver's (Blammo, The Hypo: The Melancholic Young Lincoln) new upcoming graphic novel, Saint Cole. Continuing his interest in pathos and the human condition, Van Sciver is back with a story of 28-year-old Joe, a pizza server with a girlfriend and infant child who retreats further and further into alcohol as life continues to throw curve balls in his path.

Saint Cole is due to arrive in February of the new year, but why wait? It's up for pre-order now!

Zak Sally's Comic Experiment continues
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Zak Sally 24 Nov 2014 10:29 AM

Sally
Zak Sally sent over some samples of his new comic in his Eisner-nominated series, RECIDIVIST Vol. IV, an experiment in comics. It's a gorgeous work of art following/not following a man, a place, a time, a house. The comic also comes with a great soundtrack to read to, it is most akin to a genre of ambient terror music (if that exists) and works smashingly well with reading the book. Like I mentioned, this comic is an experience, not your literal and linear reading experience but something to absorb--maybe not even read front to back. It is well worth the price of admission and just a gorgeous object to hold and feel.

You can buy a copy here for $20 smackaroos. There's also a preview flip through of the book. Recidivist vol. IV has 56 pages, on a couple different paper stocks, printed in 8 colors on the Risograph, and then metallic silver on the offset press. It is all written, drawn, printed, recorded, hand collated, stapled, and assembled by THE Zak Sally. There was also a sweet print that is not included but worth totally showing off! 

Sally Stuff
Zak continues to make comics with his micropress, Le Mano, in Minneapolis and is one of the organizes behind the hot show Autoptic, coming up in August 2015. You can find other Zak Sally work here on our site.   

Run Like Crazy Run Like Hell by Jacques Tardi - Video/Photo Slideshow
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under previewsJacques Tardi 24 Nov 2014 10:00 AM

Run Like Crazy Run Like Hell
by Jacques Tardi; adapted from the novel by Jean-Patrick Manchette and translated by Doug Headline

104-page black & white 7.5" x 10.75" hardcover • $19.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-620-1

Ships in: January 2015 (subject to change) — Pre-Order Now

After the teeth-rattling one-two punch of West Coast Blues and Like a Sniper Lining Up His Shot, Jacques Tardi makes a third appointment with ace crime writer Jean-Patrick Manchette for his wildest adaptation yet.

Peter Hartog, a rich industrialist, hires a troubled young woman, Julie, straight out of the psychiatric asylum to which she has been consigned for several years, to work as a nanny for his bratty kid Peter. But Hartog's seemingly altruistic impulse to help rehabilitate a troubled soul hides a darker motive: He plans to stage a fake kidnapping of his son, and use Julie as a scapegoat.

Unfortunately for Hartog, Julie proves infinitely more tough and resourceful than he expected, the kidnapping goes horribly, bloodily wrong, and now Julie and Peter are on the run, pursued both by the police and by Hartog's goons, led by the aging but fantastically dangerous contract killer Thompson — one of Manchette's most unforgettable creations, a golem of Terminator-like tenacity who is barely slowed down by physical punishment that would instantly kill a lesser man (he does not end the book with the same amount of eyes and feet as he started).

As with the other Tardi/Manchette books, Run Like Crazy... is full of moments of pitch-black humor, and a strong current of socio-political satire runs beneath its bleak surface. It's a ride to hell, but a devilishly fun one.

The next night, December 6th, the group is having an art show at Comic Arts L.Aat the Think Tank Gallery. The time? TBA but mostly likely party o'clock! (939 Maple Ave, Suite #200, Los Angeles, CA 90015).  The list of past Stinckers includes Jeremy Eaton, Esther Pearl Watson, Mark Todd, Jordan Crane, Matt Furie, Ben Marra, and many more!Stinckers, I looooove you! 
The Stinckers machine is also a-live and a-ctive. They've also got their own new URL so make sure to make it rain internet confetti! From their blog: If you are visiting this blog and "now" is after 2034....HELLO ..! This is what the world looked like before you were born. We had buttonholes on our clothing and made fun of Facebook.... Quite a crew, order some STINCKERS! today, hit up one of these upcoming events or check out their long-list of comic stores that carry the Stinckers in stock, like the Fantagraphics Bookstore and Gallery!
Love and Rockets Library (Palomar & Luba Book 5): Ofelia by Gilbert Hernandez - Video/Photo Slidesho
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under previewsLove and RocketsGilbert Hernandez 21 Nov 2014 10:00 AM

Love and Rockets Library (Palomar & Luba Book 5): Ofelia
by Gilbert Hernandez

256-page black & white 7.25" x 10.25" hardcover • $19.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-806-9

Ships in: January 2015 (subject to change) — Pre-Order Now

In Ofelia, the sisters, the kids, and the cousins are all settled comfortably in California after leaving Palomar in Luba and Her Family. Luba and her cousin Ofelia’s relationship has always been fraught, but when Ofelia threatens to write a book about Luba, past memories, secrets, resentments, and pain resurface. Meanwhile, Luba’s children—genius Socorro, recently out-and-proud Doralís, and prickly Maricela—show that a talent for trouble may be hereditary. Luba’s sisters, Fritz and Petra, swap lovers (as usual), but…are Fritz and family friend Pipo sittin’ in a tree? These vividly drawn characters are charged with Hernandez’s trademark complexity; they live, love, age, fight— and die—in this sweeping, multigenerational saga.

NYC: Bergen Street Comics to host Marguerite Van Cook + James Romberger
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Marguerite Van CookJames Rombergerevents 20 Nov 2014 4:11 PM
Late Child
Suit up with your finest threads, comics fans. Saturday, December 6th at 8 pm, head over to the friendly Bergen Street Comics at 470 Bergen Street and check out the latest graphic novel from Marguerite Van Cook and James Romberger
 
The Late Child and Other Animals is the latest graphic novel from this two-person cartoonist machine (a nice follow up to Romberger and Van Cook's Eisner-nominated 7 Miles a Second along with David Wojnarowicz). A generational autobiography written by legendary punk diva and award-winning poet Van Cook, adapted by Romberger. The journeys and struggles over decades of this mother and daughter are linked in five episodes that veer between lyricism, wry wit, and harrowing suspense hitting notes of European feminism.

Wilfred Santiago  
CAKE 2015 in Chicago is already rolling out the announcements of special guests and we are very excited to tell ya that Wilfred Santiago will be storming the court with his new graphic novel about the local legend, Michael Jordan: Bull on Parade. This is Santiago's latest graphic novel since his homerun hit (oh yes, we know you love those sports references), 21: The Story of Roberto Clemente.
 
CAKE's announcement gives a nice summary of Santiago's career as well: His first professional work was seen in the DC Comics/Milestone Media series Static, and since then he has gone on to create the original graphic novel In My Darkest Hour and the best-selling comics biography 21: The Story of Roberto Clemente, and he has had illustrations published in Sports Illustrated, The Chicago Tribune, and elsewhere. He publishes Goodwilfred Sunday Magazine every first Sunday of the month with his wife. For more information, CAKE and Fantagraphics suggest reading this interview at The Comics Journal, or this interview at Comics Alliance. GAME ON.
Wilfred Santiago  Michael Jordan

Now in Stock: Cochlea & Eustachia by Hans Rickheit
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under new releasesHans Rickheit 20 Nov 2014 11:20 AM

Just arrived and shipping now from our mail-order department:

Cochlea & Eustachia by Hans Rickheit - Cover

Cochlea & Eustachia
by Hans Rickheit

80-page full color 8" x 10" softcover • $19.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-801-4

See Previews / Order Now

Cochlea & Eustachia appear to be twin human girls, but this has yet to be confirmed. Their actions seem to be motivated less by curiosity than boredom and an inclination towards purposeless destruction. Any connate objective remains to be determined. They never stray apart from each other, out of an unspoken proclivity. Perhaps they keep together because they resemble each other; a mixture of vanity and comfort is the foundation of their constant companionship. They seem to consider any creature with dissimilar features as inept or untrustworthy. They are suspected of giving hypnotic suggestions to cats. They do not seem particularly malicious, just meddlesome. This new graphic novel from the author of the acclaimed Squirrel Machine is lighter in tone than his previous works, yet its myriad charms remain as sinister as Rickheit fans would expect.
