Weekly OCD 10.16.2014
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under Simon HanselmannPeanutsOCDDisneyChris WrightCharles M SchulzCarl Barks 16 Oct 2014 2:05 PM

This week's cinnamon-spice-and-everything-nice latte of Online Commentaries and Diversions:

Interview: Blacklung by Chris Wright

"I see Blacklung almost, as an expressionist play. I didn’t want these guys to seem like real people. At the same time there IS a human face behind every mask… Unless you put a mask on a dog, then it’s a dog face behind the mask." – Right Ear Left

 

Snoopy's Thanksgiving by Charles M. SchulzReview: Snoopy's Thanksgiving by Charles M. Schulz

"Now here’s something to be thankful for—the fourth in Fantagraphics’ growing line of seasonal-themed gift books collecting classic Peanuts material. Snoopy’s Thanksgiving, as the title indicates, is concerned with next month’s big holiday." – J. Caleb Mozzocco, School Library Journal

 

Megahex by Simon HanselmannReview: Megahex by Simon Hanselmann

"…not only do I find Megg, Mogg, Owl et al bloody funny at times in that first half, as the book wore on I found myself becoming more and more absorbed and fascinated by the darkness, the progression of the comedy into misery and despair, handled really well by Hanselmann." – Richard Bruton, Forbidden Planet

Review:

"Featuring old-school underground comix, but with the style and serial nature of even older-school Sunday newspaper comics strips, Megahex is the sort of comic that could only gestate on the Internet, and only find final, full expression in book form from a publisher like Fantagraphics." – J. Caleb Mozzocco, Las Vegas Weekly

 

Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge: The Seven Cities of Gold by Carl BarksReview: Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge: The Seven Cities of Gold by Carl Barks

"Fantagraphics has been lovingly reprinting Banks' classic Uncle Scrooge comics into beautifully designed and recolored hardcover collections. This 14th volume of reprints, Uncle Scrooge: The Seven Cities of Gold, begins with the classic story "The Seven Cities of Cibola," which is notable for inspiring the giant, rolling boulder scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark." – Rich Barrett, Mental Floss

New Comics Day 10.15.14
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Richard SalaNew Comics DayJacques TardiDisneyCarl Barks 16 Oct 2014 11:33 AM
This week's comic shop shipment is slated to include the following new titles. Read on to see what comics-blog commentators and web-savvy comic shops are saying about them (more to be added as they appear), check out our previews at the links, and contact your local shop to confirm availability.
 
Bumf  
Bumf Vol. 1: I Buggered the Kaiser
by Joe Sacco

100-page black & white 6.625" x 10.5" softcover • $14.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-748-2 
 
"the artist is heading back to his underground roots, citing the influence of ZAP and Weirdo and promising an exuberant, satirical and confrontational read…It'll be interesting to see how well the established audience for Sacco's journo-comix respond to this change of tone." –Tom Murphy, Broken Frontier
 
Carl Barks 
Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge: The Seven Cities of Gold (The Complete Carl Barks Disney Library Vol. 14)
by Carl Barks

240-page full color 7.5" x 10.25" hardcover • $29.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-795-6

"Before this point, most Uncle Scrooge stories played off of his greed and paranoia about safeguarding his wealth from the dastardly Beagle Boys, but this shift towards treasure hunting would be the way forward for the comics for decades, eventually inspiring the popular Duck Tales cartoon series in the 1980s." -Rich Barrett, Mental Floss

In a Glass Grotesquely
In a Glass Grotesquely
by Richard Sala

136-page full color 7" x 7" softcover • $19.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-797-0 

"To read a Richard Sala comic is an experience both jarring and fun. Good for a rainy day or a stormy night." - Publisher's Weekly

WWII Tardi
Tardi's WWI: It Was the War of the Trenches/Goddamn This War!
by Jacques Tardi

260-page black & white with color 8.25" x 10.75" hardcover • $39.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-769-7 
 
"Tardi is unremitting in his focus on the small, human details of the catastrophe-not just the look of uniforms and weaponry, but the way one soldier advances in an awkward, stiff-armed posture, 'protecting my belly with the butt of the rifle,' and the way another makes sculptures and rings from discarded shells, to sell to his comrades." - Gabriel Winslow-Yost, The New York Review of Books

Peter Bagge is a 2014 USA Rockefeller Fellow of Literature
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Peter Baggeawardsart 16 Oct 2014 10:24 AM

Peter! 
This week we celebrate Peter Bagge, one of our cartoonists who has been drawing comics for 35 years. He was recognized on Monday by the United States Artists Fellows as a 2014 USA Rockefeller Fellow of Literature! The U.S.A. program is a "grant-making organization funded by philanthropic foundations and individuals to support creativity. The 16 women and 18 men were [chosen] by experts in their fields and were among 116 nominated artists living in the United States." Bagge also received $50,000!

"U.S.A. Fellowships are awarded to innovative artists of all ages and at all stages of their careers, who are nominated for their commitment to excellence and the enduring potential of their work," said chief executive Carolina Garcia Jayaram.

2014 has been a banner year with the release of Bagge's HATE collection Buddy Buys a Dump and Fantagraphics will soon be rolling out another title from the cartoonist as well. Raise a glass and make a toast to Peter Bagge! You're number one, indeed.

The Late Child and Other Animals by Marguerite Van Cook and James Romberger - Video/Photo Slideshow

The Late Child and Other Animals
by Marguerite Van Cook and James Romberger

180-page color 8" x 10" hardcover • $29.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-789-5

Ships in: November 2014 (subject to change) — Pre-Order Now

Hetty survives the bombing of Portsmouth by the Nazis in World War II, only to learn that her soldier husband — with whom she was in the process of adopting a young daughter — has been killed on the way back home from North Africa. She must then complete the adoption alone. A decade later, she gives birth to a bastard daughter, Marguerite. Now Hetty must go before a tribunal to prove that she is a fit mother — or possibly lose both her children. From there, The Late Child and Other Animals tells the story of little Marguerite's childhood in the recovering British naval port and the rural beauty of the Isle of Wight and in Normandy, France. 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.

The Late Child and Other Animals is an original graphic novel, a generational autobiography written by legendary punk diva and award-winning poet Marguerite Van Cook, adapted by artist James Romberger, the creator of the Eisner-nominated Post York. The team of Romberger and Van Cook is also responsible for the adaptation and art of 7 Miles a Second, their critically acclaimed graphic memoir collaboration with the late multimedia artist and AIDS activist, David Wojnarowicz.
