Doctors by Dash Shaw - Video/Photo Slideshow
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under videopreviewsDash Shaw 21 Aug 2014 8:00 AM

Doctors
by Dash Shaw

96-page color 6" x 8" hardcover • $16.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-803-8

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

This new graphic novel from acclaimed cartoonist Dash Shaw (Bottomless Belly Button, BodyWorld, New School) is his most taut book to date. Dr. Cho is the creator of the Charon, a device that allows his staff to enter a dead patient's afterlife by taking the form of a memory in the patient's consciousness, and bring him or her back to life, with one catch: the experience is traumatic and the process kills them again soon thereafter. But for some bereaved, the opportunity is priceless. So when Bell is killed in a random accident, her daughter hires Dr. Cho's team to bring her back. But what if Bell didn't want to come back? The dying unconsciously create the afterlife they want, or feel they deserve, in their minds before everything fades to black. Isn't that better than the reality, and no less meaningful than life itself? Can unconsciousness coexist with consciousness? Part science-fiction thriller, part family drama, part morality play for the 21st century, and quite possibly Shaw's best book to date.

In a Glass Grotesquely by Richard Sala - First Look
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under Richard SalaComing Attractions 20 Aug 2014 5:45 PM

In a Glass Grotesquely by Richard Sala - Cover

In a Glass Grotesquely by Richard Sala - Inside Page

Nothing kills one's mood for golf like news of one's children being eaten alive. And by man-eating plants, no less! Keep your loved ones close; Super-Enigmatix is as cold and ruthless as he is cunning, and who knows where he may choose to strike next.

In a Glass Grotesquely collects selected picture stories by Richard Sala, and it is with deep trepidation that we take this first look.

And yet, once open, this book is nigh impossible to put down. Sala's lush, watercolored panels are eye-catchingly beautiful, and his sharp, dark humor is delightfully sinister. We'll have more previews in the next few weeks, before its anticipated November release, and our presale is up—if you dare.

PITTSBURGH: Hip Hop Family Tree Release Party
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under eventsEd Piskor 20 Aug 2014 2:50 PM
Hip Hop Family tree 2
Hometown hero, Ed Piskor, is coming back atcha with the release of Hip Hop Family Tree Vol. 2 at 7pm on Saturday, September 23rd. At this release party at Copacetic Comics, you may need to bring the bucks but never the beats. 

Book 2 covers the early years of 1981-1983, when Hip Hop has made a big transition from the parks and rec rooms to downtown clubs and vinyl records. As meticulously documented in Piskor's panels, the performers make moves to separate themselves from the paying customers by dressing more and more flamboyantly until a young group called RUN-DMC comes on the scene to take things back to the streets. So party people gather 'round and count down to this sweet release party this Saturday!

ISBN: 978-1-60699-743-7 

"Simon Hanselmann is the real deal, for sure. He captures that stoner stay-at-home life so accurately that I actually find his comics really depressing and thank God I don't ever have to hang out with anybody like that ever again." - Daniel Clowes

"Megahex is basically about a bunch of people (and "people") watching TV and getting wasted and fighting and fucking and pranking each other. Oh, and depression. What's not to love?!" - Peter Bagge

It's not listed on the Diamond Previews list for 8.20.14 but we check it's individual book page and it says August 20th!

"Great howling crashwagons!" The Richest Duck in the World is back — and so are noisy nephew Donald, wunderkinder Huey, Dewey, and Louie, and rascally richnik Flintheart Glomgold! Because you asked for it, we're proud to present our first complete, chronological book of Duck adventures by contemporary fan favorite Don Rosa — following in the footsteps of Disney legend Carl Barks with an exciting, lovingly detailed visual style all his own! Rosa, among the world’s most beloved modern cartoonists, launched his Barksian career in 1987. Famed for his prizewinning "Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck," Rosa wrote and drew a whopping two decades' worth of ripping Scrooge and Donald yarns! Presented with sparkling color and "extras," these Duckburg epics are getting a definitive, comprehensive North American edition for the very first time — at a price even Scrooge would consider a bargain!

Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge: The Seven Cities of Gold by Carl Barks - Cover Uncovered
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under previewsDisneyComing AttractionsCarl Barks 19 Aug 2014 3:15 PM

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

We are pleased to present you with our finalized cover design for Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge: The Seven Cities of Gold!

In a story that inspired Steven Spielberg and George Lucas—both big fans of Carl Barks themselves—with iconic parts of Raiders of the Lost Ark, the titular "The Seven Cities of Gold" has Uncle Scrooge and his kin on the hunt for the fabled Seven Cities of Cibola, said to have streets paved with gold. This and other stories, notes, and cover art make up our newest volume of classic, carefully remastered work by the one and only Carl Barks.

Tardi's WWI Boxset - Inside Page

With this sleek, elegantly minimalistic slipcase design, Jacques Tardi's award-winning Goddamn This War! and It Was the War of the Trenches are beautifully encased in a matte, dark grey boxset that quietly reflects the books' somber, heavy material.

We expect to see Tardi's WWI boxset out in October. Until then, we'll have more juicy previews and unboxing video in the coming weeks. And as per usual, our presale for the boxset is up and raring to go.

This week's hen's egg clutch of Online Commentaries and Diversions:

Gast by Carol Swain - CoverReview: Gast by Carol Swain

"What’s most impressive about Swain’s story is its quiet nature, and its delicate portrayal of darkness. Instead of going for the obvious and imposing gruesome imagery to match the backdrop of macabre, Swain portrays the setting as a far more subtle place to contain unease, at time bucolic even with the fog of despair that sometimes hangs there." – John Seven, Vermicious

 

How to Be Happy by Eleanor Davis - CoverReview: How to Be Happy by Eleanor Davis

"That's Davis' sensibility. In her roundabout way, she dramatizes not the prospect of happiness, but the promise of it. Her natural territory is found in all the funny and tragic effects of that promise." – Etelka Lehoczky, NPR

Plug: Look who's sitting pretty at number 10 on the NY Times' Best Sellers List this week!
