Jim by Jim Woodring - Photoset Preview
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under new releasesJim Woodring 1 Aug 2014 4:00 PM

"[This] material…exploded the idea of autobiographical or journalistic comics… What Woodring did better than anyone was promote the idea that the subconscious, the imaginary, and the dreamtime state were perfectly valid terrains for autobiographical exploration… Plus, it’s great comedy." –Joe McCulloch

"I don’t really have adequate language to describe it." –Alan Moore

"Woodring is a cartoonist of frightening power…" –ComicsAlliance

The Lonesome Go by Tim Lane - First Look

The Lonesome Go by Tim Lane - Cover

The Lonesome Go by Tim Lane - Inside Page

The Lonesome Go by Tim Lane - Cover

Train-hoppers, hitchhikers, drunken bar fights, clowns, amnesia, abandoned amusement parks—these are just a few examples of the myriad gritty and poignant imagery to be found between the covers of Tim Lane's new book, The Lonesome Go. This hefty, 296-page behemoth has landed on our desks, leaving us feeling both somewhat nostalgic for and perturbed by these stories, mythologies, and symbols, which shine a glaring light into the seedy underbelly of America.

Read our 22-page (12.9 MB) downloadable excerpt here, preferably with a steaming mug of cheap, truckstop diner coffee. The Lonesome Go should be out by October 2014, and we'll have more previews coming soon!

Panter Shoes
Finally! San Diego Comic-Con is over and we can get back to publishing great comics and sending you your rewards like the Gary Panter kicks and prints that just showed up today! We're spending the next week sending out the items we had to wait on like the signed Luba and Her Family, Unlovable 3 and Love Bunglers, plus more prints, more portraits. There are some signed prints we're still waiting on like Tony Millionaire and S. Clay Wilson for the book and print. We'll send them out as soon as we get them and keep you in the loop.

How to be Happy
A few of our new graphic novels debuted at San Diego Comic-Con and the response was overwhelming. How to Be Happy by Eleanor Davis is devastatingly beautiful and out in stores (and in your mailboxes) now! We airfreighted a few copies of the books to the convention since the cartoonists were special guests but they will be in your hands as soon as they arrive in our warehouse.

And to close, a charming image from the Kim Thompson Memo Zine, printing within the week.

Doctors by Dash Shaw - First Look

Doctors by Dash Shaw - Cover

Doctors by Dash Shaw - Inside Page

Doctors is in the house! That is, advance copies of the newest graphic novel out by Dash Shaw have arrived at our office. The premise: doctors have developed a medical device—dubbed the Charon—that can lift recently-dead patients out of their self-created afterlife and revive them. For those who can afford the expensive procedure, it can be an irresistible attempt to cheat death.

This tautly crafted story spans just 96 pages, and it is as much about the interpersonal relationships that develop between doctor and patient during this traumatic procedure as it is about exploring the concepts—and subsequent repercussions—of reviving the dead.

You can download and read our 10-page (14.8 MB) excerpt here, and we'll have more previews in the following weeks. Doctors is available on presale, with an expected arrival date of early October 2014.

Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under previewsnew releasesMark Fertig 31 Jul 2014 2:00 PM

Collecting 101 noir movie posters of, arguably, the greatest noir films ever made in the genre (including classics The Maltese Falcon, Laura, and Double Indemnity). Reproduced in a stunningly designed, oversized format that shows off the spectacular visual elan of Hollywood movie posters at their best, the book is not only a stunning showcase of film noir art, but also establishes the crucial films and identifies their key characteristics, with critical commentary on each film by editor and scholar Mark Fertig. This is an ideal handbook for noir rookies, a valuable resource for old-hats, and a visual feast for fans of film noir and American entertainment art.

SuperTrash, an Exhibition of Cult Movie Posters
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Jacques Boyreauart shows 31 Jul 2014 1:12 PM
Super Trash
PNCA Presents SuperTrash, an Exhibition of Cult Movie Posters

The Pacific Northwest College of Art (PNCA) presents SuperTrash, an exhibition of 200 works of cult movie signage from the 1930s through the 1980s. The exhibition, which originated at The Andy Warhol Museum and went to the Anchorage Museum, opens at PNCA in Swigert Commons on September 4 and runs through October 21, 2014.

Curated by Jacques Boyreau, the author of TRASH: The Graphic Genius of Xploitation Movie Posters, SuperTrash features work by artists such as Joe Niem, Drew Struzan, Olivia De Berardinis, Robert Tannenbaum, John Alvin, Rene Ferraci, Jack Kamen, Albert Kallis, Neal Adams, John Solie, Reynold Brown, and Renato Casaro. Boyreau considers this accumulation of signage an alternative portrait of the 20th century.

"SuperTrash is about the powers of contradiction and how the struggle to bond affects the urge to divide," says Boyreau. "We live in a paradise of anxiety, unclear certainties. Our fairy tales are poisonous. In such a situation, beautiful things bring terrible surprises."

Boyreau further develops the ideas of TRASH, on which the exhibition is based, in a new book entitled SUPERTRASH: Hermaphro Chic, Movie Fetish, 21st Century Anxiety, to be published this fall by Fantagraphics Books.

SuperTrash
In conjunction with the exhibition, SuperTrash, the Laurelhurst Theater will present a film series running from September 5 through October 17, 2014.

Sept. 5
Akira
Sept. 12 Every Which Way But Loose
Sept. 19 The Omega Man
Sept. 26 Last Tango in Paris
Oct. 3 Streets of Fire
Oct. 10 Temple of Doom
Oct. 17 Gremlins 2

This exhibition is supported by Ninkasi Brewing. But don't get jealous, Seattle, we'll have our fair share of Jacques Boyreau activity coming our way soon!

Heroes of the Comics by Drew Friedman - Photoset Preview
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under previewsnew releasesDrew Friedman 31 Jul 2014 7:30 AM

"For those of you who weren’t lucky enough to meet the mad geniuses who created comics, Drew Friedman’s art gives you the best chance you’re going to have to see them through their smiles, the eyes that dreamed up fantastic worlds, and to get a hint of the lives they led." –Paul Levitz

"When Drew Friedman does something, you know it is much better than merely excellent. Here he salutes the pioneers, masterminds, and geniuses of a graphic form that delighted, excited, and scared the hell out of us. And we were enthralled by every panel." –Arnold Roth

"I am a cockeyed fan of the astonishingly wonderful artist/caricaturist Drew Friedman and his merciless honesty. It has been delightful to watch Friedman chase Hogarth, Kley, Nast, and them guys over the hill. He is to art what Guernica was to human observation." –Harlan Ellison

Supertrash by Jacques Boyreau - Cover Uncovered
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under previewsJacques BoyreauComing Attractions 30 Jul 2014 5:30 PM

Supertrash by Jacques Boyreau - Cover

Equal parts curated trash-culture imagery and multimedia collage—interspersed with exposition on the relationship between art and trash—the 220-page, full-color SuperTrash is an assault on the senses. This new title by Jacques Boyreau, a sequel to his 2002 work, Trash: The Graphic Genius of Xploitation Movie Posters, delves into the gonzo archives of 20th century design to seek out and dissect the co-dependencies of art and trash.

Available for pre-order now, and expected to arrive in a few months' time. Look for additional previews in the coming weeks!

In a Glass Grotesquely by Richard Sala - Cover

We're pleased to unveil the final cover art for a new collection of related short stories from Richard SalaIn a Glass Grotesquely features the antics, plots, and twists of the mysteriously masked, diabolical villain only known as Super-Enigmatix and his loyal army of female commandos. The stories are drawn in Sala's signature cheerfully vivid watercolors and filled with his equally cheerful dark tongue-in-cheek humor.

What chaos will the dastardly Super-Enigmatix unleash upon the world? More previews forthcoming! In a Glass Grotesquely is available for pre-order in the meantime.
