Pirates in the Heartland: The Mythology of S. Clay Wilson Vol. 1 - Excerpt
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under S Clay WilsonpreviewsPatrick RosenkranzComing Attractions 29 Apr 2014 11:24 AM

How did a nervous, creative kid from a normal family in Nebraska grow up to make some of the most outrageous, transgressive, Id-ful comics ever put to paper? You'll find the answer — and the comics — in Pirates in the Heartland, the first book in our 3-volume biography and retrospective of S. Clay Wilson by Patrick Rosenkranz. Wilson, of course, is a member of the Zap Comix collective and creator of the Checkered Demon; Rosenkranz is one of the preeminent authorities on underground comix and the author of the definitive history of the genre, Rebel Visions. Their mighty powers combine in this essential series that takes an unflinching look at the man and his work.

In our downloadable excerpt, read about Wilson's childhood in the heartland, see some of his youthful artwork, and read some of his earliest underground comix stories with, yes, pirates. Expected availability is in about 8 weeks, give or take;pre-sale is on now!

It's a happy day for the Love and Rockets fans in the office (i.e. all of us): advance copies of Luba and Her Family are in the house! This is the latest Gilbert Hernandez volume in the Love and Rockets Library softcover omnibus series and the first to collect Gilbert's work from the post-Volume 1 era. Whether you're the kind of completist who needs all the books, or the kind who just wants to read all the stories in the proper narrative order, or a new reader who wants to jump on with a good, more recent starting point, you need this book. Jump on our pre-sale and take a gander at some of the contents (including the table thereof) right here.

And oh yeah, we've got a reprint of the second Jaime book on the way at the same time:

Wandering Son Vol. 7 by Shimura Takako - Cover Uncovered
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Shimura TakakoMatt ThornmangaComing Attractions 24 Apr 2014 1:50 PM

Wandering Son Vol. 7 by Shimura Takako

We didn't really change the cover art for Wandering Son Vol. 7 by Shimura Takako from the preliminary mockup before we sent it to press, but let's make it official anyway. Don't Takatsuki-san and Nitori-kun look adorable in their winter outfits? The book will be out in the dog days of summer, so this snowy scene will help you think cool thoughts. Zits, a ski trip, drama club, and just plain drama are in store for our gender-questioning teen heroes in this seventh installment of the beloved series.

As always, be on the lookout for future previews, put in your pre-order, and don't forget, for a limited time you can subscribe to Vols. 7 & 8 at a discount when you order Vol. 6!

Gast by Carol Swain - Cover Uncovered
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Coming AttractionsCarol Swain 23 Apr 2014 4:15 PM

Gast by Carol Swain

Moody, atmospheric, finely observed, shot through with post-punk tension... Carol Swain's comics voice is singular, and has been lauded by Alan Moore, Time, The Guardian, Time Out, and Publishers Weekly. We're excited to be bringing out her first solo graphic novel in several years, Gast, this Summer. Part mystery, part character study, part magical-realist fable, told through her quietly bold, tactile pencil artwork, Gast is a book that only Swain could create.

Look for our usual preview rollout over the weeks and months to come until the book's release in July or so; in the meantime, you can get in on the pre-sale now.

Special Exits by Joyce Farmer - Paperback Cover Uncovered
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Joyce FarmerComing Attractions 18 Apr 2014 1:16 PM

Special Exits by Joyce Farmer

With a National Cartoonists Society award, Eisner and Ignatz nominations, and best-of-the-year recognition from Entertainment Weekly, NPR, and The A.V. Club, Joyce Farmer's graphic memoir Special Exits was one of our most acclaimed books of 2010. Now we're going back to press for a new softcover edition, coming this Summer, featuring this new cover design. Stand by for more previews in weeks ahead; meanwhile, read all the praise and pre-order a copy right here.

Jim by Jim Woodring - Cover Uncovered
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Jim WoodringComing Attractions 17 Apr 2014 2:14 PM

Jim by Jim Woodring

Jim, the long-awaited new collection of Jim Woodring's non-Frank work (which includes the material from the out-of-print The Book of Jim plus much more, old and new), has gone off to the printer and here is the cover art for you to puzzle over and be made slightly uncomfortable by. Be glad we're not subjecting you to the back cover, which has what is presumably a childhood drawing by Jim that is genuinely frightening.

Look for more previews and information as the July release date approaches, but don't wait to pre-order!

Megahex by Simon Hanselmann - Cover Uncovered
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Simon HanselmannComing Attractions 17 Apr 2014 1:51 PM

Megahex by Simon Hanselmann

Look what showed up on Tumblr yesterday (and in our inboxes): Simon Hanselmann's final cover art for Megahex, his eagerly-awaited collection of Megg, Mogg, & Owl comics! We're not sure yet exactly where this will land in our schedule, but its convention debut will definitely be at SPX in September, and it is available for pre-order. For now we'll just let the artwork speak for itself... gee, it looks like Simon has publisher pride, huh? We love you too, Simon!

Hip Hop Family Tree Vols. 1-2: 1975-1983 Box Set by Ed Piskor

A smash hit series deserves an ultra-luxe repackaging for collectors and gift-giving, so this Fall we're bringing you the Hip Hop Family Tree Vols. 1-2: 1975-1983 Box Set! It contains the first two volumes of Ed Piskor's New York Times best-selling series (obvs) with some extra details and bonuses to make it extra-collectible and extra-covetable, not least of which is Ed's smashing new artwork for the slipcase.

As if that weren't enough, hard-working Ed has whipped up exclusive cover art for both volumes, available only in the box set:

Hip Hop Family Tree Vol. 1 by Ed Piskor (box set cover)

Hip Hop Family Tree Vol. 2 by Ed Piskor (box set cover)

Not only that, the set will also include this exclusive bonus comic book, Hip Hop Family Tree #300 "Milestone, Variant, Limited, Ashcan Edition!" Foil-stamped cover! Rob Liefeld! It's the '90s-est.

Hip Hop Family Tree #300

Here's the slipcase art straight on — Ed's homages to EC Comics and mid-1960s DC's "Go-Go Checks," respectively:

Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Wallace WoodSteve DitkoSergio PonchioneJack KirbyComing Attractions 16 Apr 2014 4:51 PM

DKW by Sergio Ponchione

Shortly after completing the serialization of Sergio Ponchione's surreal masterpiece Grotesque, we came across portions of his project DKW: Ditko Kirby Wood on his blog, and we immediately knew we had to bring this phenomenal work to American readers. A loving tribute to Steve, Jack, and Wally, DKW tells their stories with astounding, eye-popping, trippy visuals that transport you inside the imaginations of these three master comics-makers.

We're pleased to present DKW as a one-shot comic book coming to comic shops this July! Look for it in the May issue of Previews, out in two weeks, and demand it from your local retailer.

As great as the new cover for the forthcoming paperback edition of Strange Suspense: The Steve Ditko Archives Vol. 1 looks on screen, it looks even better in person as we ogle the advance copies fresh out of the box today. And, of course, the guts are still phenomenal, collecting Ditko's earliest pre-Code horror and suspense work, expertly restored in full lurid color, and compiled by acclaimed Ditko biographer Blake Bell.

If you missed out on the hardcover edition of this volume, be sure to snap up this version right away — you can reserve your copy, and read an excerpt with 3 full stories, right here!
