"EC Comics' output of crime, horror, and war comics have been reprinted and collected multiple times, but never like in Fantagraphics’ new 'EC Comics Library,' which repackages some of the most influential comics ever published in writer/artist-driven volumes, printed in black and white." – The A.V. Club

"Fantagraphics has been inventing unique ways to publish [this] treasure trove of '40s and '50s crime, horror and war comics." – The Toronto Star

Angry Youth Comix by Johnny Ryan - Photoset Preview
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under previewsnew releasesJohnny Ryan 4 Mar 2015 11:30 AM

"More than worth its price in pure mirth. But there’s more! …This newest issue sees the artist’s signature series move further than ever into straight-up horror/exploitation territory, without losing a lot of ground in comedy. …Fascinating work." – Jog The Blog

"A lot of people’s Top Ten Favorite-est Comics of the Year lists this year will involve comics about Israel or the exquisite sadness of being an Asian man who likes blondes, all that stuff; mine will involve cheeseburger-flavored semen…? I got dropped on my head a lot as a baby." – Abhay Kholsa, The Savage Critics

"The new Angry Youth Comix is finally out and it may be the darkest cartoon we’ve ever seen and also the most hilarious… It also features one of the most honest depictions of the American family dynamic to appear in print, though we can see that aspect maybe getting lost for some readers amid the turd-vines and the synthetic ejaculates." – Vice

Collected Poems by Alexander Theroux - Video/Photo Slideshow
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under videopreviewsnew releasesAlexander Theroux 4 Mar 2015 11:10 AM

Collected Poems
by Alexander Theroux

672-page color 6" x 9" x 2" hardcover
$39.99 | 978-1-60699-802-1

Ships in: April 2015 (subject to change) — Pre-Order Now

The publication of Alexander Theroux’s Collected Poems, a gathering of more than 660 poems, an astonishing creative output, will be among the major literary events of the year. Here is a full cornucopia of sonnets, odes, ballads, free verse, triolets, pure, satires, narratives, dramatic monologues, fanciful meditations, flytings and harangues, ruminations on death and lost love, and no end of lyrics both beautiful and fierce. Taken altogether they contrive to make up a record of the author's deepest thoughts and reflect the dramatis personae of his life. Theroux captures in his work those rare, frail, but precious truths, inaccessible to the common run of men that would otherwise have vanished into nescience. Sardonic, astute, impertinent, tender, clever, warm-hearted, delphic, truculent, comic, defiantly aggressive, and often achingly personal, he shows an intensity of observation and invention.
