Luba and Her Family by Gilbert Hernandez - Cover Re-Uncovered
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Love and RocketsGilbert HernandezComing Attractions 24 Mar 2014 4:01 PM

Luba and Her Family by Gilbert Hernandez

Well folks, we jumped the gun just a bit last week so this is a do-over with corrected art: 

At last, the long-awaited next Gilbert Hernandez volume in the comprehensive Love and Rockets Library paperback series is nearly here! Luba and Her Family is at the printer now for release in July. This is the first book in this format to collect Gilbert's work past the original 50-issue L&R series. (We'll reveal the full Table of Contents and provide more previews in the not-too-distant future.)

This book is also the debut of the new addition to our Art Department, Keeli McCarthy, who designed the cover based on the look established by Jacob Covey. Welcome, Keeli!

You don't have to wait to pre-order your copy; and for full immersion or gift-giving, you can get all 4 of Gilbert's L&R Library volumes for a tidy discount!

Prince Valiant Vol. 9: 1953-1954 by Hal Foster

Another gorgeous volume of Hal Foster's magnum opus is off to the printer! Prince Valiant Vol. 9: 1953-1954 collects two more years of quests, danger, sorcery, family milestones, treachery, and comic relief from one of the greatest illustrators to ever grace the comics page. It almost goes without saying, but a reminder can't hurt: these volumes are scanned from original engraver's proofs, meaning that the strip has never looked better and making this the ultimate Prince Valiant series.

This volume is expected to be available in early July; look for more sneak peeks between now and then, and pre-orders are being taken now!

Unlovable Vol. 3 by Esther Pearl Watson - Video/Photo Slideshow Preview
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under videopreviewsnew releasesEsther Pearl Watson 18 Mar 2014 4:57 PM

Unlovable Vol. 3
by Esther Pearl Watson

412-page two-color 5.75" x 5.75" hardcover • $29.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-737-6

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

BARGAIN COMBO:
Unlovable Vols. 1-3 Gift Set
Price: $68.98 $55.18

Summer vacation is here and Tammy Pierce is back with more sometimes ordinary, often humiliating, occasionally poignant, and usually hilarious exploits! Her hopes, dreams, agonies, and defeats are brought to vivid, comedic life by Watson's lovingly grotesque drawings, filled with all the eighties essentials — too much mascara, leg warmers with heels, and huge hair, etc. — as well as timeless teen concerns like acne, dandruff, and the opposite sex (or same sex, in some cases). Unlovable addresses the mysteries of high school through Tammy's naivete; girls and women in particular will find much that resonates, but men will also relate to Unlovable's universal humor and loser cast of characters. Tammy's life isn’t pretty, but it is endlessly endearing and hilarious.

"Esther's consistently original, hilarious and heart-felt work evokes the travails of puberty with painful accuracy. After perusing Unlovable Vol. 3 we immediately broke out in zits and had clumsy beginner sex." – Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman

"Tammy's enchanting smile and dazzling eyes are a gift of grace from Esther Watson." – Pendleton Ward, creator of Adventure Time

"Unlovable is the great teen comic tragedy of our time!" – Matt Groening

"The women when not naked are about to get naked, or may be pining for a time when they will be naked…A lot of the work is sublimely handsome, as is befitting a Wally Wood comic, and has the authority that a well-drawn work brings that we tend not to question but is such a remarkable gift to tone and feel." –Tom Spurgeon, Comics Reporter  
 
"Serialized in Overseas Weekly, far away from applicable content restrictions, Cannon reconfigures the tradition of adventuresome comics patriotism into something more to Woody's liking, with an emotionless killing machine doing what needs to be done, every time, no matter how naked the ladies get." -Joe McCulloch, The Comics Journal
