When a passel of extra-sneaky, extra-ornery high-tech cattle rustlers strikes the good citizens of Bullet Valley, Donald Duck bravely dons a badge to become the "Sheriff of Bullet Valley." Fortified by the know-how he's gained watching Hollywood Westerns, our ever-intrepid Duck sets out to solve the perplexing mystery of how Blacksnake McSquirt's brand keeps showing up on the cattle of the honest ranchers. Sheriff of Bullet Valley is the second entry in our new line of affordable kid-friendly Donald Duck books: just-right half-height books packed with fun, laughs, and adventure. Each story is complete with all the original artwork (no panels have been dropped or altered). Bonus: Donald's always-exasperating cousin Gladstone Gander returns in, um, "Gladstone Returns." All stories written and drawn by Disney legend Carl Barks!

March Booklist Reviews
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Wallace WoodOCDLucy KnisleyJaime HernandezGreg SadowskiGilbert HernandezDisneyDaily OCDCarl BarksBasil Wolverton 18 Mar 2015 2:16 PM

Next month's issue of Booklist will include reviews of recent releases by Fantagraphics cartoonists + creators, excerpted below:

Displacement
A Starred review for Displacement by Lucy Knisley
"Knisley finds both the humor and the sadness in her grandparents' condition...Whereas Knisley's previous travel memoirs speak more to the young adult experience, Displacement is a timely and mature work that pairs perfectly with other elder-care titles, such as Roz Chast's Can't We Talk about Something More Pleasant? (2014)." –Snow Wildsmith

Love and Rockets 7
Love and Rockets: New Stories #7 by Jaime Hernandez & Gilbert Hernandez
"Jaime's economically elegant cartooning and Gilbert's bold designs and imaginative characterizations-will leave fans satisfied and eager for next year's installment." –Gordon Flagg

creeping
Creeping Death from Neptune
 by Basil Wolverton, edit by Greg Sadowski
"Wolverton was a genre unto himself..No matter what he drew-science fiction, costumed crime fighters, or wacky humor-his distinctively iconoclastic style, marked by blocky compositions and idiosyncratic stippling, set it far apart from anything else." –Gordon Flagg

Seven cities
Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge: The Seven Cities of Gold by Carl Barks
"Barks' flair for combining humor with thrills is unmatched, as are his clear, expressive cartooning and his command of visual storytelling. The full-color restoration of the artwork and the useful historical notes give Barks' consummate work the deluxe presentation it richly deserves." –Gordon Flagg

Spawn of Mars
Spawn of Mars and Other Stories by Al Feldstein & Wallace Wood
"Wood's detail-laden panels, vibrant brushwork, and chiaroscuro lighting effects gave his stories a verisimilitude that the primitive cinematic special effects of the era sorely lacked...While the stories might be best enjoyed by a precocious 12-year-old, it takes an adult reader to fully appreciate Wood's astonishing craft." –Gordon Flagg

Sock Monkey  
Sock Monkey: Into the Deep Woods
by Matt Danner and Tony Millionaire

80-page black & white 6" x 9" hardcover • $16.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-746-8 

"Compelling, beguiling and visually intoxicating, this latest Sock Monkey yarn judiciously leavens discovery with anxiety, heartbreak with gleeful imaginative innocence and terror with bold triumph…Win's Christmas Gift Recommendation: a new classic to add to the "Every Kid Must Read" list... 10/10" –Win Wiacek, Now Read This!
 
"It's really good. I thought that giant Sock Monkey collection was criminally under-discussed when it came out. Those are lovely, lovely comics. The characters work in this form, too." –Tom Spurgeon, Comics Reporter
Set to Sea
Set To Sea [Softcover Ed.]
by Drew Weing

144-page black & white with color 5" x 6.25" softcover • $14.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-771-0 

"Now that sublime and out-of-print yarn is back as a deliciously handy, pocket-sized softcover reissue that will - if there's any justice - finally make [Weing] a household name amongst lovers of tall tales and comic treasures." –Win Wiacek, Now Read This!
 
"Very few words are needed in Weing's debut graphic novel [Set to Sea] to tell the story of a poet wanna-be who is kidnapped by pirates and learns the ways of the sea through hard labor and even tougher battles. The cross-hatch styling is reminiscent of old engravings and perfectly suits the subject matter. Each page features just one frame, full of detail and atmosphere. With hints of The Odyssey, Moby Dick, Popeye and Treasure Island, Weing has created a modern classic in the pirate genre." –School Library Journal   
Palestine  
Palestine
by Joe Sacco, introduction by Edward Said
 
288-page black & white 7" x 10 3/4" softcover • $24.99
ISBN: 9-781-56097-4321
 
"Sacco is a pioneer." –Journal of Palestinian Studies

ISBN: 978-1-60699-780-2 

"You're gonna want to pick that up this week, or write yourself a note to do so in the near future, as it's a pretty great collection..." –J Caleb. Mozzocco, Every Day is Like Wednesday
 
"You must think I'm a broken record by now. Any time a Carl Barks or Don Rosa book of Donald Duck or Uncle Scrooge comics is released, I get all excited. Because they're great! I'm not kidding! Also good for jaded fans too cool for kids' comics." –Tim Finn, Hub Comics (via 13th Dimension)
Rosa boxset  
Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge and Donald Duck: The Don Rosa Library Vols. 1 & 2 Gift Box Set
by Don Rosa 

424-page full color 8.5" x 11" hardcover • $49.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-781-9  
 
"Let me be perfectly clear: The Don Rosa & Carl Barks Duck books are as good as comics get. Period. Nothing surpasses - only matches - the pure imagination, humor, adventure, and heart of these Donald Duck & Uncle Scrooge stories. These are desert island comics - if I had to take only one box of comics with me somewhere, a couple of these volumes would be coming with." –Vince Ostrowski, Multiversity Comics  
 
"…it's a rare, rare accomplishment what Rosa did with these great Carl Barks characters and comics." –Tom Spurgeon, Comics Reporter
  
Pogo Volume 3
Pogo - The Complete Syndicated Comic Strips Vol. 3: "Evidence to the Contrary"
by Walt Kelly

368-page black & white with color 11.25" x 9.25" hard/soft/cover • $45.00
ISBN: 978-1-60699-694-2 

 "...[T]here's simply no denying Kelly's mastery: he evokes full characters with nothing but a few choice words, and the sprightliness of his visual style is all fun here, laying the groundwork for what would become profoundly subversive later. The included essays, as is usually the case for Fantagraphics reissues, absolutely nail the context and import of the strip, too. I just don't think you can say you love comics and not have this around." –David Berry, National Post

"The biggest revelation of reading the first two years of Pogo is how polished and funny the strip was right from the start, and also how nearly every Pogo panel is a delight unto itself. Kelly didn't necessarily build to big punchlines; he'd slip funny sight gags and memorable lines everywhere there was room. ...[T]here's a classic Pogo moment on just about every page of this book." - Noel Murray, The A.V. Club

Peanuts 22  
The Complete Peanuts 1993-1994 (Vol. 22)
by Charles M. Schulz

344-page black & white 8.5" x 7" hardcover • $29.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-773-4 

"Charles Schulz was an American treasure - an artist, philosopher, and keen observer of human life." –Bill Clinton

"The Complete Peanuts confronts us afresh with what a brilliant, truly modern and totally weird idea it was to create a comic strip about a chronically depressed child..." –TIME Magazine

 
Peanuts Every Sunday  
Peanuts Every Sunday 1956-1960 (Vol. 2)
by Charles M. Schulz 

288-page full color 13.25" x 9.5" hardcover • $49.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-794-9 

"The daily black-and-white comics were great but the full-color Sunday strips gave Schulz a big, beautiful canvas to let his expert pacing and amazing linework breathe in a rainbow of color...it's really the entire mix of characters ...and their mix of adult prickliness and childlike naiveté that made Charles Schulz's iconic comics strips so timeless." - Evan Narcisse, Kotaku
 
Peanuts Volume 2
The Complete Peanuts 1953-1954 (Vol. 2 Softcover)
by Charles M. Schulz 

320-page black & white with spot color 8.25" x 6.25" softcover • $22.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-792-5 
 
"The Complete Peanuts has framed Charles Schulz's enduring masterpiece about as well any lifelong fan could've hoped." –"The Best Comics of the '00s: The Archives", The A.V. Club
Peanuts 
The Complete Peanuts 1950-1954 Gift Box Set (Vols. 1-2 Softcover)
by Charles M. Schulz

Barks Duck Set

by Carl Barks

472-page full color 7.75" x 10.5" hardcover • $49.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-796-3
 
"I will not rest until everyone is reading these reasonably priced and beautifully designed and edited volumes of Carl Barks' Disney Duck masterpieces… every one of them are great." –Andy Mansell, Heroes Online  
 
"Even now, Barks' stories are clever and funny, as he leads the ducks into impossible situations and then gives them unexpected ways out. And they're poignant in their own way, too.... What's impressive about Fantagraphics' Lost in the Andes is that it encourages both a fannish and an intellectual approach to the material." - Noel Murray, The A.V. Club 
 
Barks and Hanselmann: Still NY Times Best Sellers
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Simon HanselmannDisneyCarl Barksawards 24 Oct 2014 3:20 PM
Seven Cities  Megahex
Congratulations are in order (again)! Carl Barks is on the NY Times Best Sellers list at #2 for his new collection Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge "The Seven Cities of Gold". The NY Times poses the question, "Will Uncle Scrooge and his nephews survive a trip to the lost city of gold?" We certainly hope so! But you'll have to read it to find out. 
 
Meanwhile, Simon Hanselmann's Megahex is still on the list, two weeks in a row, making it one 'hot fortnight' for the people at the funny papers. So the lesson? 2014 loves anthropomorphic characters, be they child-appropriate or not. Pick up a copy of these two great to hold, even better to read graphic novels today!
