Run Like Crazy Run Like Hell by Jacques Tardi - Video/Photo Slideshow
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under previewsJacques Tardi 24 Nov 2014 10:00 AM

Run Like Crazy Run Like Hell
by Jacques Tardi; adapted from the novel by Jean-Patrick Manchette and translated by Doug Headline

104-page black & white 7.5" x 10.75" hardcover • $19.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-620-1

Ships in: January 2015 (subject to change) — Pre-Order Now

After the teeth-rattling one-two punch of West Coast Blues and Like a Sniper Lining Up His Shot, Jacques Tardi makes a third appointment with ace crime writer Jean-Patrick Manchette for his wildest adaptation yet.

Peter Hartog, a rich industrialist, hires a troubled young woman, Julie, straight out of the psychiatric asylum to which she has been consigned for several years, to work as a nanny for his bratty kid Peter. But Hartog's seemingly altruistic impulse to help rehabilitate a troubled soul hides a darker motive: He plans to stage a fake kidnapping of his son, and use Julie as a scapegoat.

Unfortunately for Hartog, Julie proves infinitely more tough and resourceful than he expected, the kidnapping goes horribly, bloodily wrong, and now Julie and Peter are on the run, pursued both by the police and by Hartog's goons, led by the aging but fantastically dangerous contract killer Thompson — one of Manchette's most unforgettable creations, a golem of Terminator-like tenacity who is barely slowed down by physical punishment that would instantly kill a lesser man (he does not end the book with the same amount of eyes and feet as he started).

As with the other Tardi/Manchette books, Run Like Crazy... is full of moments of pitch-black humor, and a strong current of socio-political satire runs beneath its bleak surface. It's a ride to hell, but a devilishly fun one.

Love and Rockets Library (Palomar & Luba Book 5): Ofelia by Gilbert Hernandez - Video/Photo Slidesho
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under previewsLove and RocketsGilbert Hernandez 21 Nov 2014 10:00 AM

Love and Rockets Library (Palomar & Luba Book 5): Ofelia
by Gilbert Hernandez

256-page black & white 7.25" x 10.25" hardcover • $19.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-806-9

Ships in: January 2015 (subject to change) — Pre-Order Now

In Ofelia, the sisters, the kids, and the cousins are all settled comfortably in California after leaving Palomar in Luba and Her Family. Luba and her cousin Ofelia’s relationship has always been fraught, but when Ofelia threatens to write a book about Luba, past memories, secrets, resentments, and pain resurface. Meanwhile, Luba’s children—genius Socorro, recently out-and-proud Doralís, and prickly Maricela—show that a talent for trouble may be hereditary. Luba’s sisters, Fritz and Petra, swap lovers (as usual), but…are Fritz and family friend Pipo sittin’ in a tree? These vividly drawn characters are charged with Hernandez’s trademark complexity; they live, love, age, fight— and die—in this sweeping, multigenerational saga.

NYC: Bergen Street Comics to host Marguerite Van Cook + James Romberger
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Marguerite Van CookJames Rombergerevents 20 Nov 2014 4:11 PM
Late Child
Suit up with your finest threads, comics fans. Saturday, December 6th at 8 pm, head over to the friendly Bergen Street Comics at 470 Bergen Street and check out the latest graphic novel from Marguerite Van Cook and James Romberger
 
The Late Child and Other Animals is the latest graphic novel from this two-person cartoonist machine (a nice follow up to Romberger and Van Cook's Eisner-nominated 7 Miles a Second along with David Wojnarowicz). A generational autobiography written by legendary punk diva and award-winning poet Van Cook, adapted by Romberger. The journeys and struggles over decades of this mother and daughter are linked in five episodes that veer between lyricism, wry wit, and harrowing suspense hitting notes of European feminism.

CAKE Special Guest: Wilfred Santiago

Wilfred Santiago  
CAKE 2015 in Chicago is already rolling out the announcements of special guests and we are very excited to tell ya that Wilfred Santiago will be storming the court with his new graphic novel about the local legend, Michael Jordan: Bull on Parade. This is Santiago's latest graphic novel since his homerun hit (oh yes, we know you love those sports references), 21: The Story of Roberto Clemente.
 
CAKE's announcement gives a nice summary of Santiago's career as well: His first professional work was seen in the DC Comics/Milestone Media series Static, and since then he has gone on to create the original graphic novel In My Darkest Hour and the best-selling comics biography 21: The Story of Roberto Clemente, and he has had illustrations published in Sports Illustrated, The Chicago Tribune, and elsewhere. He publishes Goodwilfred Sunday Magazine every first Sunday of the month with his wife. For more information, CAKE and Fantagraphics suggest reading this interview at The Comics Journal, or this interview at Comics Alliance. GAME ON.
Wilfred Santiago  Michael Jordan
The Fourth Annual Chicago Alternative Comics Expo will take place on Saturday, June 6 and Sunday, June 7, 2015 at the Center on Halsted, 3656 N Halsted Ave. Applications for CAKE 2015 exhibitors are now open: http://www.cakechicago.com/2015-cake-exhibitor-application The deadline for applying is December 15, 2014.

Now in Stock: Cochlea & Eustachia by Hans Rickheit

Just arrived and shipping now from our mail-order department:

Cochlea & Eustachia by Hans Rickheit - Cover

Cochlea & Eustachia
by Hans Rickheit

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

See Previews / 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.

Displacement by Lucy Knisley - Video/Photo Slideshow

Displacement
by Lucy Knisley

168-page full color 5.5" x 7.5" softcover • $19.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-810-6

Ships in: January 2015 (subject to change) — Pre-Order Now

New York Times best-selling cartoonist Lucy Knisley paints a warts-and-all portrait of contemporary, twentysomething womanhood, like writer Lena Dunham (Girls). In the next installment of her graphic memoir series, Displacement, Knisley volunteers to watch over her ailing grandparents on a cruise. (The book's watercolors evoke the ocean that surrounds them.) In a book that is part graphic memoir, part travelogue, and part family history, Knisley not only tries to connect with her grandparents, but to reconcile their younger and older selves. She is aided in her quest by her grandfather's WWII memoir, which is excerpted. Readers will identify with Knisley's frustration, her fears, her compassion, and her attempts to come to terms with mortality, as she copes with the stress of travel complicated by her grandparents' frailty.

Miss Lasko-Gross at comiXology
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Miss Lasko-Grossdigital comicscomiXology 19 Nov 2014 1:33 PM
Escape from Special
This week, we're all about Miss Lasko-Gross! The sold-out edition of Escape from "Special" is available digitally now thanks to comiXology! It is the coming-of-age story of Melissa, who we first meet as a small child and depart from at the end of the book just before she enters high school. Drawn in black and white and washed in moody blues and full spectrum grays, Lasko-Gross's art, with its detailed backgrounds and expressive characters, exquisitely conveys the story's blend of humor (sometimes of the gross-out variety) and keenly observed insights. Miss Lasko-Gross, who has the sensibility of a love child of Linda Barry and David B. midwifed by Judy Blume, has created a graphic novel that should appeal not only to the growing readers of graphic novels, but to teens grappling with similar unresolved questions. 185 pages of fantastic comics for only $13.99.
 
Meanwhile A Mess of Everything is continues the story of self-effacing non-conformist Melissa, now in high school facing a drug habit, alienation, accidental heartbreak and other issues in an intense, honest, and funny memoir. Busting out fifty more pages than the first book, A Mess of Everything can be your mess for $15.99 for 233 pages. 
A Mess of Everything
"A compelling work... a stunning portrayal of what it takes to disentangle ourselves from the rules we're supposed to follow and forge our own path." - The Toronto Star 
 
"Vividly imaginative in tricky layouts, intricate patterns and hallucinatory neverlands yet starkly perceptive of everyday details and personality, immune to art-star mythology while stockpiling stuff of legend, Lasko-Gross is capable of anything - but can't help doing right." - Adam McGovern, ComicCritique.Com
