C. Tyler Interviewed About New Book
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Carol Tyler 27 Feb 2009 7:39 PM

Carol Tyler is interviewed at newsarama about her forthcoming graphic memoir, YOU'LL NEVER KNOW, which is certain to be one of the most talked-about graphic novels of 2009. I know Mike already linked to this but it wasn't working earlier and Tyler's awesome enough that it should be called out. 

Tim Hensley & Wally Gropius
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Tim HensleyMort WalkerMome 27 Feb 2009 6:23 PM

  

I'm putting together the 15th issue of MOME (Summer 2009) right now and it features the final three chapters of Tim Hensley's spectacular "Wally Gropius, Teen Millionaire" which has appeared in MOME since our fifth issue (Fall 2006). I can't even tell you how proud I am to have published this comic. Hensley is such a singular talent. He's so good I'm almost at a loss to explain why. There's something transcendent about it. It looks like old 1950s teenage humor comics, specifically Mort Walker's proto-Beetle Bailey strip, Spider, as Adam Grano recently pointed out to me while laying out the upcoming Walker interview in The Comics Journal.

  

Here's a page from Wally:

I find his work beautiful to look at. It's as attractive as comics get for me. But his work is so much more than that. It's a satire of teen comics and celebrityhood and modern culture, but it's also great Art. His dialogue is witty, lyrical, sampled, dada, and elliptical. It's all in the service of a very bizarre story, a mystery of sorts. There's sex, violence, rock and roll, intrigue, betrayal -- but it's all told in Hensley's truly inimitable style. I've read each chapter many times and will be sorry to not have more coming in anymore. But not to worry, Tim's already hard at work on the Wally Gropious collection, which won't be out for over a year but will be well worth the wait!

And here's a sneak peak at the cover for MOME 15, featuring the end of Wally Gropius. This is an early treatment by Adam Grano, with art by Andrice Arp:

Oh, and read Tim's blog

 

I'm so glad I'm not in on Fridays.

Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under videoTony Millionairepreviewsnew releasesMaakies 27 Feb 2009 2:50 PM

Drinky Crow's Maakies Treasury by Tony Millionaire

Now available for preview and pre-order: Drinky Crow's Maakies Treasury, the latest compilation of Maakies strips by Tony Millionaire. This volume, designed as a sequel to Premillennial Maakies (and to introduce fans of TV's The Drinky Crow Show to the source material), collects the second 5 years of the strip (previously reprinted in the volumes When We Were Very Maakies, The House at Maakies Corner and Der Struwwelmaakies) in a single thick volume splendidly designed by Chip Kidd. This book is scheduled to be in stock in early March and in stores approximately 4 weeks later.

Preview downloads: now for everyone!
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under previewsmeta 27 Feb 2009 11:23 AM

We hope you've been enjoying our downloadable PDF excerpts of recent releases! Last year we posted a group of these previews that were available only to folks who are registered and logged in to the website. We've decided to make all of these previous excerpts available to the general public as well (just as we did with our webcomics a few weeks ago)!

Gorge yourself on juicy chunks from over 20 of our 2008 releases, including some of our most lauded and talked-about titles like Bottomless Belly Button, The Education of Hopey Glass, Explainers, and Strange and Stranger: The World of Steve Ditko. See the list of newly-public previews here. You'll also find these downloads, plus our famous slideshow previews, on the product pages for each title, just as you will with all the new previews we've been posting. And stay tuned for even more previews of upcoming books right here on Flog, including a brand new one later today!

(20/20 Club members, you'll still get exclusive first looks at some of these previews -- watch your inbox! Not a member yet and want in on the action? Join today!)
