Hidden Gems 25%-off sale & daily spotlight
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under sales specialsHo Che Anderson 1 Jul 2008 12:00 AM

For one reason or another, every once in a while one of our books will slip under the radar and go under-appreciated, or maybe it made an initial splash but has since faded from the general consciousness. For the month of July, 2008, we're highlighting some of these "hidden gems" from our back catalog and encouraging you to discover some great but obscure books by offering them at a nice discount of 25% off! Click here for the full selection. (Sale ends at 11:59 PM Pacific time, July 31, 2008.)

We'll also be spotlighting these books with a daily feature here on Flog, starting right here and right now! Leading off the top of the alphabet: Canadian artist Ho Che Anderson, best known for King, his acclaimed comics biography of Martin Luther King Jr. and also creator of these lesser-known gems:

Young Hoods in Love by Ho Che Anderson

Young Hoods in Love

In this collection of original, previously unpublished stories, Anderson looks to the streets of his own modern-day Black Toronto for this group of gritty urban tales of explosive human relationships. Meet Toronto's sexiest bank robbers in "Young Hoods in Love." Join Edith in her desperate search for her son's father in "Johnny Angel." Experience the gut-wrenching surprise ending of "The Twilight of Our Years." See the unforgettable meeting of "Molly and Madeleine." And in the volume's closer, watch Cookie balance three relationships and two careers in "Doe." Funny, profane, and authoritatively real, Young Hoods in Love thrusts Ho Che Anderson into the first rank of contemporary comics creators.

Scream Queen by Ho Che Anderson

Scream Queen

A woman driving alone through the desert picks up a younger woman whose car has broken down on the side of the road. Later at the younger woman's job, the two ladies chat, revealing bits and pieces of their lives. After this meeting, the older woman leaves for an appointment with a man. She arrives at his apartment where he's having sex with a woman. The woman confronts him. Turns out she's the living dead, come to bring the man to the other side. Scream Queen marks the first book by Anderson since his landmark graphic novel, King. Scream Queen represents a marked departure from King, being a much shorter work of genre fiction, but employing a similar graphic sensibility and mastery of form to chilling effect.

(Trivia note: pages from Scream Queen decorate the room of the depressed son in the film Little Miss Sunshine.)

Two Midwest exhibits
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Zak SallyWill ElderHarvey Kurtzmanevents 30 Jun 2008 2:26 PM

The Daily Cross Hatch has word on "Zines of the Cities," a great-looking retrospective of Minneapolis/Saint Paul zines now on display at the Stevens Square Center for the Arts gallery (1905 3rd Ave S, Minneapolis, MN 55404), featuring work by Zak Sally and Mr. Mike (no relation) among many others.

And the Star Clipper Blog clues us in to the Mad Magazine Exhibit, currently on display at the St. Louis Artists' Guild in Clayton, MO. It's not stated which artists are included in the exhibit (Kurtzman? Elder?) or even what era, if any, the exhibit focuses on, but admission is free so it won't cost you nothin' to find out.

Frank cartoon by Jim Woodring

From Jim Woodring comes word that our pals at Strangeco have created an online gallery of Jim's panel-cartoon-of-sorts that used to run in The Stranger a few years back. Oh yes.

Art of the Internet.

Knowing of my own Ninja Turtles sketchbook, Mike Baehr pointed me to this sketchbook with several TMNT interpretations from folks at Heroes Con. Turns out it's the sketchbook of SubSub, aka Joseph Lambert, one of the CCS grads.

Impressed by the accuracy of the Krang illustration I looked into Matt Bernier's website and discovered he's friends with Jon Vermilyea, one of my favorite cartoonists/illustrators, which pointed me to Jon's portrait of Washington on the Vice website. If you're interested they've got five more portraits from people like Laura Park and Bald Eagles. But not by Kaz Strzepek who did the awesome TMNT rubdown sketch.
