Mmm, Delicious
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under meta 8 Sep 2008 4:57 PM
As if we don't already have enough social networks to keep track of, we're now on the "social bookmarking" site Delicious! We've been bringing you our weekly "Blogosphere Roundup" link posts for a while, and we thought it might be nice if the links could be searchable and organized with tags so you can find related links (for instance, all the reviews of a certain book, or links pertaining to a particular artist). We'll still bring you our roundup posts every week, but now you can follow along in real time on our Delicious page or with the RSS feed.

Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under videopreviewsnew releasesKrazy Kat 8 Sep 2008 1:06 PM

Here's a slightly belated look at the two ultimate entries (until we go back and reprint the early Eclipse volumes) in our Krazy & Ignatz series of Krazy Kat reprint volumes: 1943-1944 (top) and The Complete Sunday Strips 1935-1944, the giant hardcover compiling the last 5 volumes (bottom). Watch these video/photo slideshow teasers for exciting fold-out action, glinting gold foil stamping, and more. Click here and here if the slideshows don't appear above.

Blogosphere roundup for 9/5/08
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under reviews 5 Sep 2008 4:51 PM

Here's what the Internet says about our books this (relatively quiet) week:

Kevin Church sandwiches a thumbs-up for Tim Lane's Abandoned Cars amongst some other reviews; Alan David Doane calls the book "thrilling";

Blog Flumer Ken Parille says it best: "In anticipation of the forthcoming release of Daniel Clowes's Ghost World: Special Edition, I take a close look at the comic's closing line of dialogue"

Mano de Papel notes our publications in general (in Spanish)

Jog notes our New Comics Day releases and, while complimentary toward the books, doesn't care for our slideshow previews

anonymous souls - and make personals ads not just acceptable, but
cool." - Penthouse

"No matter who - or what - your yen, LUST is worth a peep." - Readymade

"Alternately clever and goofy, LUST is a fantastic voyage into the
nether regions of human desire." - Entertainment Weekly

Scenes from a Town of Mirrors
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Robert Pollard 5 Sep 2008 11:10 AM

  

Here's a swell recap of our recent Robert Pollard book release party, courtesy our pal Rob Clough. Thanks to Rob for the recpap and pics (and be sure to check out Rob's writing about comics, he's one of the best on the Net):

On a rainy Durham evening on August 15th, Merge Records hosted a book release party and art exhibit for Robert Pollard. Merge has released the last several solo albums of the former Guided By Voices lead singer, so Durham was a fitting site for the debut of TOWN OF MIRRORS, a tribute to his remarkable eye as a visual artist. His works included art from his album covers, drawings, paintings, collage and other mixed media. The opening was part of a monthly "Third Friday" art walk in downtown Durham, and the small Merge gallery was quickly packed. I snapped these photos just a few minutes after the doors opened, finding a relaxed Pollard talking to friends (that's him in the striped shirt):

Some of the works featured in the photos include "Everything's Baby", "Gratification To Concrete", "The Kids Eat It Up", "The Floating Babies In Space", "Church of the Sci-Fi Episode 23 Too Much Information" "Church of the Sci-Fi Episode 7 Visit This Place", and "Off To Business".

Krazy and Ignatz: The Complete Sunday Strips 1935-1944 by George Herriman

Krazy and Ignatz: The Complete Sunday Strips 1935-1944
By George Herriman

Our second limited-edition deluxe Krazy hardcover (it's Volume 3, but the second to be published; Volume 1 is still forthcoming) collects the second batch of five Krazy & Ignatz softcover books we have published, comprehensively compiling the years 1935 through 1944, under hard covers. It's not a slipcase, it's a single hardcover book. The covers to the original five softcover books are NOT included, but literally everything else is. And yes, we are similarly collecting the years 1916-1924 as those softcover volumes are completed. (Since we get asked this once in a while — even though it's covered in the first one we did, at the end of the book, ahem — YES, we will go back and reprint the years prior to 1925.) Because of the limited nature of this item, we are not distributing this through traditional bookstores or Diamond distribution. A beautiful, must-have brick of a book for the Ignatz in you (though lobbing it at any unrequited love interests WILL cause serious physical harm — be warned).
