New Comics Day 11.12.14
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Olivier SchrauwenNew Comics DayFloyd GottfredsonDisney 12 Nov 2014 2:54 PM

This week's comic shop shipment is slated to include the following new titles. Read on to see what comics-blog commentators and web-savvy comic shops are saying about them (more to be added as they appear), check out our previews at the links, and contact your local shop to confirm availability.
Arsene Schrauwen
Arsène Schrauwen
by Olivier Schrauwen

250-page color 8" x 10" hardcover • $34.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-730-7

"There is an element of old world fable, distinctly European, to Arsene Schrauwen, as well as the kind of modernist journeys portrayed in books like Kafka's Amerika, with their emphasis on the conflict between an individual's internal struggles and the absurdity of their surroundings, both subtle and sublime." –Harris Smith, comiXology

"It is often said that to reduce a work to comparisons with its forebears is to reveal less the critic's grasp of lineage than his poverty of analysis, but I've found estimations like ‘Roy Andersson remaking Fitzcarraldo as an X-rated children's comic' to be personally useful in conveying the unique tone of this Olivier Schrauwen original, reductive as it may be." –Joe McCulloch, TCJ

Mickey Mouse 6
Walt Disney's Mickey Mouse Vol. 6: Lost in Lands of Long Ago

by Floyd Gottfredson

288-page black & white with color 10.5" x 8.75" hardcover • $35.00
ISBN: 978-1-60699-782-6 

"A revelation. As in his contemporaneous animated cartoons, this Mickey is a feisty, wisecracking daredevil... Gottfredson's charmingly old-fashioned drawings accentuate the gags and briskly propel the plotlines." –Gordon Flagg, Booklist

"I have a feeling that this book, crafted with such obvious care, will earn Gottfredson a new legion of admirers." –Leonard Maltin



Mickey Mouse boxset
Walt Disney's Mickey Mouse Vol. 5 + 6 Box Set
by Floyd Gottfredson 

576-page black & white with color 10.75" x 9" x 2.5" hardcover • $49.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-783-3

"[The Blot's design] simple but phenomenally effective, and actually manages to be haunting. Plus, there are multiple deathtraps in this story, and if there's one thing I like to see in my adventure comics, it's ridiculously complicated attempts to murder someone that are foiled at the last...And really, [the Blot] the perfect bit of imagery for this book: Fantastic, historically important comics that have been made far more difficult to read by a black mark on Gottfredson's record." –Chris Sims, Comics Alliance

"Great lover, scholar, soldier, sailor, singer, toreador, tycoon, jockey, prizefighter, automobile racer, aviator, farmer. Mickey Mouse lives in a world in which space, time, and the law of physics are nil. He can reach inside of a bull's mouth, pull out his teeth and use them as castanets. He can lead a band or play violin solos; his ingenuity is limitless; he never fails." - Time Magazine (1931)

Fantagraphics dominates NY Times Best Seller List
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Walt KellyPeanutsDon RosaDisneyCharles M Schulz 10 Nov 2014 11:50 AM
Best Seller
This week, Fantagraphics topped the NY Times Best Seller list in hardback graphic novels. Four of our new releases landed on the list: In the number one position was Pogo - The Complete Syndicated Strips Vol. 3 "Evidence to the Contrary" by Walt KellyThis volume features daily and Sunday strips (in full color) from 1953-1954. Kelly introduces one of his boldest political caricatures, the insidious Simple J. Malarkey. Seminole Sam scams, Churchy La Femme cross-dresses, P.T. Bridgeport returns and more.
 Pogo Vol. 3 Peanuts
N0. 2 on the Best Seller list was The Complete Peanuts 1991-1994 Gift Box Set by Charles M. Schulz. There's a reason this two-some is so popular; the books are full of surprises for the most ardent Peanuts fan and Schulz's humor is unrestrained and glorious. There is a charmingly odd story of when the school bus never comes, full-on Waiting for Godot. In addition, Charlie Brown finally FINALLY hits a home run but the entire story is worth the boxset. 
Rosa Box Set 
At spot 3 is Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge and Donald Duck: The Don Rosa Libary Volumes 1 + 2 Gift Box Set including "Return to Plain Awful" and "Son of the Sun". Famed for his prizewinning "Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck," Rosa wrote and drew a whopping two decades' worth of ripping Scrooge and Donald yarns!  Duckburg's richest tycoon is on the hunt for legendary square eggs - and he's bringing Donald, Huey, Dewey, and Louie along, in the sequel to "Lost in the Andes"! 
 Peanuts
And at spot 6 is the single volume of The Complete Peanuts Vol. 22 1993-1994 by Charles M. Schulz. Complete with the homerun, the bus that wouldn't come PLUS Snoopy makes a run for the Supreme Court and battles pneumonia.
 
The week these four books came out, we had about 54 pounds of graphic novels, comic strips and reprints come out so we still a bit shocked to have so many titles on the list (but not so shocked when you consider the awesome comics). Gary and Eric did some deadlifts just to see if they could guess the weight of the releases from Wednesday, October 22nd.

We'll keep printing if you keep a-reading!

(Goddamn This War!), a performance combining songs, readings and images in French & English, in the Ciné Lumière at the Institut Français in South Kensington from 7-8:30pm.

In a poignant evocation of the First World War, Grange will perform music from her own repertoire, as well as songs by unknown soldiers and pieces by Aragon and Ferré. Tardi will read caustic excerpts from Goddamn This War!, which he created in collaboration with the historian Jean-Pierre Verney, while his images, taken from the same work, will be shown on screen. They will be accompanied on stage by five musicians from the Accordzeam group. Followed by a book signing. Book your tickets at the Institut Français website.

The rest of us on this side of the pond will just have to be content to read the dark, beautiful new boxset, Tardi's WWI.

PENN STATE: Jim Woodring to accept Lynd Ward Prize
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Jim Woodringawards 6 Nov 2014 9:46 AM
Woodring
The Pennsylvania Center for the Book is thrilled to present Jim Woodring with the Lynd Ward Graphic Novel Prize for his graphic novel, Fran. Woodring will be 4 to 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 19, in Foster Auditorium, 102 Paterno Library at Penn State. As described by the jury, "Hypnotic and subliminal while entertaining and compelling, ‘Fran's' dream world is at once familiar and unsettling, a conduit to mental states that, in many ways, only the graphic novel can achieve. Woodring's work poses a refreshing change from the trend towards wordy graphic memoir, entreating the reader to reckon with a world whose language we cannot capture in our own."

So you too can be transported to the Unifactor to visit Frank, Fran, Pupshaw and Pushpaw during Woodring's talk and acceptance speech. For more information about the PA Center for the Book and past winners, visit their site. The Paterno Library is located along intercampus road Curtin Rd and N. Allen Street. Grab your own copy of Fran today!

A prize of $2,500, the two volume set of Ward's six novels published by the Library of America, and a suitable commemorative will be presented to 2014 winner, Jim Woodring, for his book "Fran."

Noon Charles Burns: Down the Black Hole
We'll enjoy a retrospective of Burns' work as an illustrator (Sub Pop, The Believer, The New Yorker) and as a cartoonist (Black Hole, Big Baby, RAW), with a focus on the recently released third book of his graphic novel trilogy, X'ed Out.

Burns will speak about his earliest influences and share some of his earliest work, including some childhood drawings. The discussion will advance through his posters and graphics, talk about the impetus for his massive masterpiece, "Black Hole," and land with an examination of the "X'ed Out" universe.

Burns will be interviewed by Paul Karasik, cartoonist and instructor at the Rhode Island School of Design. 

1:00PM Tim Lane, Jim Rugg, and Ben Marra: Neo Noir
These three cartoonists love tough yeggs, mean streets, and femmes fatales. All three have recent work evoking smoky, double-crossing noir. Each creator will present and discuss his own gods of Noir through slides depicting specific works by artists whose work they admire.

Lane describes his work as addressing the "Great American Mythological Drama," and there is something mythic in the stature of all three of these artists, whose low-life characters carry themselves with the burden of sin on their shoulders. However, though they share a taste for long shadows and deceit, their work could not be more different.

Lane, Marra, and Rugg will be interviewed by Karen Green, Librarian of Ancient & Medieval History and Religion at Columbia's Butler Library.
