Ho! by Ivan Brunetti: Previews, Pre-Order, Plus
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under wallpapersvideopreviewsnew releasesIvan Brunetti 10 Feb 2009 3:19 PM

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.

(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.)

Preview video/slideshow: Sam's Strip by Mort Walker & Jerry Dumas
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under videopreviewsnew releasesMort Walker 6 Feb 2009 3:04 PM

We're pleased to present another brilliant but short-lived comic strip from the mid-20th Century, rescued from obscurity and presented in a handsome softcover volume. Sam's Strip: The Comic About Comics collects the entirety of Mort Walker and Jerry Dumas's sharp-witted feature, ahead of its time for its use of fourth-wall-breaking meta-humor.
