21: The Story of Roberto Clemente by Wilfred Santiago

Acclaimed by Library Journal, Booklist, and YALSA; praised by sports writers from Sports Illustrated and ESPN; and enjoyed by thousands of readers of all ages — Wilfred Santiago's graphic biography 21: The Story of Roberto Clemente is now coming in a new paperback edition! Presenting the tragically short life of the legendary major leaguer with faithful accuracy and expressive storytelling and artwork, 21 is a landmark in sports biography — and a great comic book.

Doctors by Dash Shaw - Excerpt
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under previewsDash ShawComing Attractions 27 May 2014 4:11 PM

Dash Shaw is having a prolific year, with no signs of slowing down. His newest graphic novel, Doctors, is due this Fall. As with his other sci-fi-tinged stories, Shaw uses futuristic technology to explore human issues — this time, the ethics and emotional impact of interrupted mortality.

In our downloadable preview, an older woman with a seemingly idyllic life finds romance with a younger man — but her daughter appears with an unbelievable claim that her life as she knows it is not what it seems.

Doctors will be on call (in stores) in September (and available at SPX) and you can reserve your copy today.

Strange Suspense: The Steve Ditko Archives Vol. 1 (Paperback) - Photoset Preview
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Steve Ditkopreviewsnew releasesBlake Bell 26 May 2014 11:34 AM

"Strange Suspense offers page after lurid four-color page of Ditko's weird monsters, rubber-faced crooks, and abstracted landscapes... The book is a white-knuckle trip through Ditko’s fevered imagination." – The A.V. Club

"This book is chock-full of intense faces and monsters and colors. Strong blacks, horror comics, mean revenge, strange surgery…It's all horror comics from before Fredric Wertham illegalized good-time comic books." – Vice

"The tales in this tome are sheer pre-Comics Code Authority horror, complete with stabbings, decapitations, mutilations, and disintegrations. …Ditko's talent jumps off the page and one of the benefits of reading the stories in chronological order is seeing his art evolve and improve." – Rue Morgue

"This exhilarating collection of stories by the comic-book artist who co-created Spider-Man captures all the glorious chills and blood spills from the first two years of his career." – Entertainment Weekly

Walt Disney's Mickey Mouse Vol. 5: Outwits the Phantom Blot by Floyd Gottfredson - Photoset Preview
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under previewsnew releasesMickey MouseFloyd GottfredsonDisney 21 May 2014 11:31 AM

"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 [these] book[s], crafted with such obvious care, will earn Gottfredson a new legion of admirers." – Leonard Maltin

"From the beautifully reproduced strips to the densely packed ancillary features, this must be the book that editors David Gerstein and Fantagraphics’ co-founder Gary Groth wanted for years for their own libraries. Their enthusiasm shows in the wonderfully designed package. This book is highly recommended for any Disney fan and fans of America's rich comic strip history." – Rich Clabaugh, Christian Science Monitor
