Due to a computer meltdown, we are currently unable to process orders placed via our Eros Comix website. You can still place your order, but there will be a delay in shipping while we get things fixed. We will update when things are back to normal, but in the meantime you may want to call our toll-free customer service line at 800-657-1100 (206-524-1967 outside the U.S.) to place your Eros Comix order.

We've just received a fresh batch of signed book plates from Ivan Brunetti for the new Second Edition of Misery Loves Comedy; you can obtain one exclusively from Fantagraphics at no extra charge when ordering the book! Some conditions apply; click here for more details and the complete list of books available with this FREE premium!
(The first printing of Explainers was a rapid sellout! The second edition is, apart from a few typographical corrections and a new cover price, identical to the first.)
In 1956, a relatively unknown cartoonist by the name of Jules Feiffer started contributing a strip to the only alternative weekly published in the US, a small radical newspaper called The Village Voice. His strip tackled just about every issue, private and public, that affected the sentient American: relationships, sexuality, love, family, parents, children, psychoanalysis, neuroses, presidents, politicians, media, race, class, labor, religiion, foreign policy, war, and one or two other existential questions. It was the first time that the American public had been subjected to a weekly dose of comics that so uncompromisingly and wittily confronted individuals' private fears and society's public transgressions. Explainers is the first of four volumes collecting Feiffer's entire run of weekly strips from The Village Voice. This edition contains approximately 500 strips originally published between 1956 and 1966 in a brick-like landscape hardcover format.
568-page black & white 9.25" x 5.25" hardcover • $35.00
Now available for preview and pre-order: the new, first-ever hardcover edition of Paul Hornschemeier's acclaimed graphic novel debut Mother, Come Home. Praised by everyone from Will Eisner to Entertainment Weekly when it was first released, this book has been out of print for quite some time. Mother, Come Home is scheduled to be in stock in late February and in stores approximately 4 weeks later.

Now available for preview and pre-order: Ho! The Morally Questionable Cartoons of Ivan Brunetti. Compiling the panels that put the "gag" in "gag strip" from past volumes Hee! and Haw!, plus a smattering of new material, Ho! is discreetly presented in an uninviting, funereal package of unglamorous black and white. Ho! is scheduled to be in stock in late February and in stores approximately 4 weeks later.

Scheduled to arrive at your local comic shop this week: Castle Waiting Vol. II #14 by Linda Medley. As previously noted, Castle Waiting comics arrive in comic shops before we have the issues available here on the website, so hit your area brick-n-mortar if you want the issue now! Here's a first look at the cover:
(A small meta note: from now on we'll only be posting New Comics Day updates on weeks when we actually have new titles shipping to comic shops. No update means nothing new from us that week.)
• Things to see/interview: The ASIFA-Hollywood Animation Archive Project Blog posts a trove of Eldon Dedini's Playboy cartoons, along with a video interview clip
