Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge and Donald Duck: Return to Plain Awful - Excerpt
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under previewsDon RosaDisneyComing Attractions 30 Sep 2014 4:15 PM

In the first adventure that Don Rosa takes us on in Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge and Donald Duck: Return to Plain Awful, titled "The Crocodile Collector," Uncle Scrooge enlists Donald Duck and the intrepid trio, Huey, Dewey, and Louie, on a quest to find the fabled sacred crocodiles of Emperor Nero.

This goose—er—crocodile chase takes the ducks from the bustling capitol city of Cairo, Egypt to the fetid, bug-infested swamps north of Lake Victoria, Africa. To quote Donald Duck: "Oh, my aching duckfeathers!"

Give the 20-page excerpt a gander here, and check out the book page for more info and for pre-sale ordering.

Now in Stock: Nijigahara Holograph by Inio Asano - New Reprint!

Nijigahara Holograph

296-page black & white 7" x 9.5" hardcover • $29.99

Even as butterflies ominously proliferate in town, the rumor of a mysterious creature lurking in the tunnel behind the school spreads among the children. When the body of Arié Kimura's mother is found by this tunnel's entrance, next to apparently human traces, the legend seems to be confirmed. Is the end of the world coming? In order to appease the wrath of the beast, the children decide to offer it a sacrifice: The unfortunate Arié, whom they believe to be the cause of the curse, is shoved into a well that leads to the Nijigahara tunnel — an act that in turns pushes Komatsuzaki, the budding thug who has carried a torch for Arié for a while already, entirely over the edge.

But this is only the beginning of the complex, challenging, obliquely told Nijigahara Holograph, which takes place in two separate timelines and involves the suicidal Suzuki; Higure, his stalkerish would-be girlfriend; their teacher Miss Sakaki, whose heavily bandaged face remains a mystery; and many more — brothers, sisters, parents, co-workers, teachers, aggressors and victims who are all inextricably linked to one another and all will eventually — ten years later — have to live with what they’ve done or suffered through.

Asano, whose Solanin was nominated for the 2009 Eisner and Harvey comics awards (and which was made into a feature film in 2010), delves into disturbing territory with this Lynchian horror story, told in his unnervingly crisp and detailed panels.


Destiny City Comics opens in Tacoma
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under internsField Tripeventsart 30 Sep 2014 11:55 AM

Destiny Comics
We love all our interns, hell we've hired more than a few like Eric Reynolds, Kristy Valenti and Anna Pederson. But some move on and spread the magic to other parts of the country. Michael Fitzgerald fits into the category as on Wednesday, October 1st, he is opening up a NEW comics store in Tacoma, Washington called Destiny City Comics.

Right next door to King's Books on St. Helens Avenue, Destiny City Comics will offer the latest in comics, acclaimed graphic novels, and works by local creators. On opening day, comics like Thor #1 will be available, a new series by Marvel featuring a female Thor. There will also be a choice collection of graphic novels like Batman: the Long Halloween, the Walking Dead, and Guardians of the Galaxy. Plus, works by local cartoonists like members of the C.L.A.W. (Cartoonist's League of Absurd Washingtonians) and some fabulous Fantagraphics titles.

"King's Books is terribly excited to have a comic book store as a neighbor," says bookstore owner sweet pea Flaherty. "For years we have had both a Graphic Novel Book Club and hosted C.L.A.W., so it's a natural fit for the space. Destiny City Comics will enhance the literary landscape by offering variety of comic art forms that will bring more appreciation for the craft to Tacoma."

To make it easier for customers to enjoy even more books, Destiny City will offer 15% off all graphic novels every day and a subscription service featuring a sliding scale discount. Here's a sneak peak inside the store Michael gave us while setting up)display
Destiny City Comics' opening will include a Halloween ComicFest party on October 25. This event will feature an assortment of free comics, including the popular Afterlife with Archie, Scooby Doo Meets Batman, Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars, and more.

As a member of the creative enterprise cohort with Spaceworks Tacoma, Fitzgerald evolved the concept of Destiny City Comics from a rough idea to a solid plan and we look forward to seeing it thrive. Destiny City Comics will be open for business Wednesday, October 1. More information about the store can be found at destinycitycomics.com.

Sock Monkey: Into the Deep Woods by Matt Danner and Tony Millionaire - Inside Page

To see and hold a physical copy of Tony Millionaire and Matt Danner's upcoming Sock Monkey book, Sock Monkey: Into the Deep Woods is to harken back to a childhood spent surrounded by stacks of hardbound, lovingly-put together storybooks filled with lushly drawn black and white ink etchings.

Here is our first look at this beautiful hardcover, a fresh advance copy sent from the printer. The large print interspersed with beautiful, detailed black and white illustrations will capture the imaginations of kids, making this a solid page-turner as well as a fun book to read aloud this fall! You can pre-order the book now for a late October delivery.

Snoopy's Thanksgiving
by Charles M. Schulz

64-page black & white with spot color 5.75" x 5.75" hardcover • $9.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-778-9

See Previews / Order Now

Sometimes getting together with friends and family for Thanksgiving isn't all that it's cracked up to be, as Snoopy learns when his brother Spike invites him to spend Thanksgiving in the desert, and things don't quite work out as planned. At least it's a change of pace for Snoopy, who spends most Thanksgivings with the ol' supper dish (and one lonely one at the malt shoppe as Joe Cool). It's also a tense time of year to be a bird who’s afraid of being mistaken for a turkey and roasted, and Woodstock copes with his anxieties in various ways, including by donning a disguise with Snoopy's help. Meanwhile, Peppermint Patty, Marcie, and Franklin all get sick over their Thanksgiving vacation. Snoopy's Thanksgiving is the perfect gift book for anyone whose idea of the holiday is more Charlie Brown than Norman Rockwell.

Arsène Schrauwen by Olivier Schrauwen - Excerpt
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under previewsOlivier SchrauwenComing Attractions 29 Sep 2014 4:00 PM

Arsène Schrauwen is boarding a boat and sailing across the wide ocean to land in the Belgian Congo, where he is to meet his cousin and help him create a utopia in the jungle wilderness there. In these first few pages of Olivier Schrauwen's surreal biography of his grandfather, Arsène helps rid a fellow passenger of a flying fish that has somehow landed in her quarters, meets a chatty older man with ceaseless advice about life in the colony, and, finally, prepares to disembark by donning new clothes and waiting, hand poised on the door handle of his room, for the entire two hours it takes the boat to reach its port.

You can download the entire 14-page 10 MB excerpt right here, and you can find more info and pre-order the book here for delivery by late November.

Set to Sea [Softcover Ed.] by Drew Weing - Inside Page

Arrrrrrr, ye scallywags. Our office copies of the softcover Set to Sea have washed ashore, and we are thrilled to show them off! For those of you who weren't at SPX to see these in person, here is our first look. In one densely rendered panel: a deep, dark sky with its smattering of stars. In the next, a beautifully detailed closeup of the poet's book, showing the detail of his cracked, sea-worn fingernails.

We're expecting the book out on time for an October delivery, so go ahead—you can pre-order your copy here.
