Treasury of Mini Comics Vol. 2
edited by Michael Dowers

848-page black & white with color 5" x 6.25" hardcover • $29.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-807-6

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

For everyone interested in the history of underground and alternative comics, Treasury of Mini Comics Volume Two gathers prime examples—more than 800 pages' worth—from a quintessential self-publishing format in this compact but hefty hardcover. Previously only seen in limited-run pamphlets, these comics are startling, visionary, hilarious, profane, and profound. This volume also takes a look back at the wild 8-page sex comics called "Tijuana Bibles" that sprang from the 1930s underworld, as context for the contemporary comics that compose this book. Editor and mini comics pioneer Michael Dowers provides a historical survey of several decades' worth of some of the best that DIY comics has to offer, from some of the medium's most talented independent creators, including: Johnny Ryan, Trina Robbins, R.K. Sloane, Jeffrey Brown, Jim Rugg, Tom Neely, Ellen Forney, Esther Pearl Watson, Renée French, Lisa Hanawalt, J.R. Williams, Pat Moriarity, Souther Salazar, Theo Ellsworth, Nick Bertozzi, Dan Zettwoch, Marc Bell, and many others.

Sam Zabel and the Magic Pen
by Dylan Horrocks

228-page color 7" x 10" hardcover • $29.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-790-1

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

Acclaimed cartoonist Dylan Horrocks returns with a long-awaited new graphic novel, the first since his perennial classic, 1998's Hicksville (new edition, VUP 2010).

Cartoonist Sam Zabel hasn't drawn a comic in years. Stuck in a nightmare of creative block and despair, Sam spends his days writing superhero stories for a large American comics publisher and staring at a blank piece of paper, unable to draw a single line. Then one day he finds a mysterious old comic book set on Mars and is suddenly thrown headlong into a wild, fantastic journey through centuries of comics, stories, and imaginary worlds. Accompanied by a young webcomic creator named Alice and an enigmatic schoolgirl with rocket boots and a bag full of comics, Sam goes in search of the Magic Pen, encountering sex-crazed aliens, medieval monks, pirates, pixies and—of course—cartoonists. Funny, erotic, and thoughtful, Sam Zabel and the Magic Pen explores the pleasures, dangers, and moral consequences of fantasy.

Spawn of Mars and Other Stories by Wallace Wood and Al Feldstein - Photoset Preview
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under Wally WoodWallace Woodpreviewsnew releasesEC ComicsAl Feldstein 13 Nov 2014 12:00 PM

"Wood’s work seemed like snapshots of a lush and vibrant reality where even madmen, monsters and mayhem possessed a stately grace. There might be pandemonium but, oddly, the panic never seemed to reach the eyes of Wood’s regal heroes." – Geoff Boucher, The Los Angeles Times

"Legendary artist [Wally] Wood mastered every comic-book genre—humor (he was one of Mad's first artists), horror, superheroes, war—but is best known for the 1950s science-fiction stories he drew for EC Comics, in which, one commentator noted, he 'began drawing things into panels that no human being seemed capable of before.' His heroic spacemen, intricate rocket ships, and frightening aliens embodied classic space opera, and his influence remains visible in the work of many leading comics artists today." – Gordon Flagg, Booklist
