Massive: Gay Erotic Manga and the Men Who Make It - Cover Uncovered
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under mangaGraham KolbeinsComing AttractionsAnne Ishii 28 Oct 2014 8:00 AM

Massive: Gay Erotic Manga and the Men Who Make It; edited by Anne Ishii and Graham Kolbeins - Cover

Finally! Nine months after our announcement and catalog listing for Massive: Gay Erotic Manga and the Men Who Make It—an English-language anthology of renowned gay erotic manga artists—we have the finished cover art for your viewing pleasure! We couldn't be more excited to introduce this first-of-its-kind book, collecting photographs, essays, interviews, and illustrated work of nine of Japan's most renowned artists making work for the gay male audience. Edited by writer/translator Anne Ishii and filmmaker Graham Kolbeins, the book will take you deep (ahem) into an aspect of Japanese subculture that is still fairly unknown in the English-speaking world.

We'll be releasing more gay manga art goodness here and all over our social media networks in the next few days. Meanwhile, make sure to grab your pre-order copy of Massive here.

The Late Child and Other Animals by Marguerite Van Cook and James Romberger - Photoset Preview
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under previewsnew releasesMarguerite Van CookJames Romberger 27 Oct 2014 1:30 PM

"The Late Child and Other Animals shares the features that made Marguerite Van Cook and James Romberger’s collaboration with David Wojnarowicz such a success: the lush color, the creative visual mapping of a psychic landscape. The hallmarks of this remarkable writer-artist team are intensified in this loose, often lovely, personal coming-of-age narrative, haunted by a dark undercurrent, that focuses on Van Cook and her mother." – Hillary Chute, author of Outside the Box: Interviews with Contemporary Cartoonists

"The stories in The Late Child and Other Animals are beautiful haunts, the stories that were never told and have returned, fully alive and tense with implication. The stories are the intersection of a national history and the exquisitely drawn inner life of the late child herself, Marguerite. The world Van Cook and Romberger recreate is unsafe, unfolding, and shot through with joy." – Amy Benson, author of The Sparkling-Eyed Boy

"Overwhelming, my first encounter with a graphic gathering of stories: I devoured them all in a huge gulp, from the detailed delights of fields and flowers to the fearsome tale of man and girl. Everything feels so very alive in these pages, words and colors and line!" – Mary Ann Caws, author of The Surrealist Look: An Erotics of Encounter, Surprised in Translation, and The Modern Art Cookbook

Vapor by Max - Photoset Preview
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under previewsnew releasesMax 27 Oct 2014 1:21 PM

Praise for Bardín the Superrealist:

"Spanish cartoonist Max uses some of the most cherished pieces of high art as the catalyst for his character Bardin’s funny and thoroughly humane adventures… Max takes what can be impenetrable and uses some fine cartooning to make it accessible and enjoyable." – Publishers Weekly

"If you glimpse traces of Magritte, Goya, and Zap Comix in Max’s exuberant panels, then you're really enjoying yourself." – Booklist

"Wild, illogical, surreal, and utterly charming… sometimes read like a mad cross between Peanuts, Jimmy Corrigan, Salvador Dalí, and the Rarebit Fiend, but beautifully executed in Max’s underground/ligne claire style… an important new body of work from a major cartoonist." – Indy Magazine

"Max skillfully portrays dream logic in the language of comics… What makes this a great comic is its light touch and comic timing." – Sequart

"I think this is the closest you can get to a natural high while only reading a book (although a glass of wine helped)… one of the very few really surrealist comics around." – Wim Lockefeer

Foolbert Funnies: Histories and Other Fictions by Frank Stack - Cover Uncovered
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under Frank StackComing Attractions 27 Oct 2014 11:50 AM

Foolbert Funnies: Histories and Other Fictions by Frank Stack - Cover

What we've got here for you is the final cover art for Foolbert Funnies: Histories and Other Fictions, a collection of work and tribute to underground cartoonist Frank Stack. Stack, who published his comics under the pseudonym Foolbert Sturgeon to avoid prosecution, created iconoclastic comics featuring such characters as Dirty Diana, Dr. Feelgood, and Paddy Booshwah.

Foolbert Funnies is available for pre-order now! We expect it to be on track for its December debut, and we'll have more previews coming up this week.

Cochlea & Eustachia by Hans Rickheit - Video/Photo Slideshow

Cochlea & Eustachia
by Hans Rickheit

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

Ships in: December 2014 (subject to change) — Pre-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.

Barks and Hanselmann: Still NY Times Best Sellers
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Simon HanselmannDisneyCarl Barksawards 24 Oct 2014 3:20 PM
Seven Cities  Megahex
Congratulations are in order (again)! Carl Barks is on the NY Times Best Sellers list at #2 for his new collection Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge "The Seven Cities of Gold". The NY Times poses the question, "Will Uncle Scrooge and his nephews survive a trip to the lost city of gold?" We certainly hope so! But you'll have to read it to find out. 
 
Meanwhile, Simon Hanselmann's Megahex is still on the list, two weeks in a row, making it one 'hot fortnight' for the people at the funny papers. So the lesson? 2014 loves anthropomorphic characters, be they child-appropriate or not. Pick up a copy of these two great to hold, even better to read graphic novels today!

Vapor
by Max

120-page color 7" x 9.75" hardcover • $24.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-460-3

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

Disgusted and appalled with the today’s noisy and noisome world in which all is spectacle and surface sensation, Nick flees into the solitude of the desert. But even as he manages to recover some sort of spiritual balance thanks to an ascetic regimen of fasting and meditation, Nick is seduced by the most spectacular and mesmerizing spectacle of all time: The procession of the Queen of Saba.

In Vapor, the award-winning Spanish cartoonist Max (best known for his 2006 book Bardín the Superrealist) once again engages in delightful philosophical mind games, starring another wildly stylized and endearing protagonist — this time deploying a striking, crisp black and white graphic style perfectly suited for this desert-based fantasia.
