Jim by Jim Woodring - Cover Uncovered
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Jim WoodringComing Attractions 17 Apr 2014 1:14 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

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 3:51 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!

Hip Hop Family Tree Vol. 2 by Ed Piskor - Excerpt
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under previewsEd PiskorComing Attractions 16 Apr 2014 11:07 AM

The potent combination of Ed Piskor's deft cartooning skills and deep obsession for endlessly rich true-life subject matter has rocketed Hip Hop Family Tree off the shelves and onto the New York Times best-seller and 2014 Eisner Award nomination lists. (The fresh packaging and all-around general coolness don't hurt either.) Get ready for another dose of knowledge this summer, when Vol. 2: 1981-1983 drops.

Episodes in our downloadable preview: beatboxing pioneer Doug E. Fresh is introduced; the story of Dr. Jeckyll & Mr. Hyde's hit "Genius Rap"; a famous pro baseball star threatens Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five backstage; the origin of the hip hop staple "Apache" riff; how party records inspired Too Short; the roots of the Rick Rubin/Beastie Boys connection; another popular riff makes a hit for T Ski Valley; Ice-T makes a smashing debut; "Beyond Words," the seminal graffiti-based art show curated by Fab Five Freddy; and punk impresario Malcolm McLaren's introduction to hip hop.

Don't sleep; reserve your copy today!

Like a monolith, the formidable witzend box set rises from the corner of my desk. With two hardcover volumes in a slipcase collecting the complete run of Wallace Wood & company's landmark anthology series, featuring incredible artwork and scintillating stories from a murderers' row of creators, it's a monumental package, a must-have for the comics cognoscenti, and a guaranteed toe-crusher if you drop it on your foot.

This bastion of freedom of expression and independence from commercial and editorial restraint should be on shelves before Independence Day and available through our mail-order a bit sooner. If you haven't already, browse our enormous preview and reserve your copy, right here, today!

How to Be Happy by Eleanor Davis - Excerpt
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under previewsEleanor DavisComing Attractions 15 Apr 2014 10:07 AM

Eleanor Davis won the Russ Manning Most Promising Newcomer award at the 2009 Eisners, and her illustration work won her a Gold Medal from the Society of Illustrators last year, further cementing her status as a major young creator. Now, we present How to Be Happy, the eagerly awaited collection of Davis's comics going back to 2007, coming this Summer.

Our downloadable preview includes portions of the stunning painted stories "In Our Eden" and Best American Comics selection "Nita Goes Home," plus a couple of Davis's looser but no less impactful sketchbook strips. Everyone will be talking about How to Be Happy when it comes out in July or early August; make sure you're part of the conversation by pre-ordering your copy today.

It's nearly time to raise a glass and tie one on with our classy-looking, fun-sized hardcover gift book Cork High and Bottle Deep by Virgil Partch. Vip's booze cartoons are hilarious even if you're not three sheets to the wind. Our research department has not yet read the book while in their cups — we need to beef up our safety equipment first — but we now have our advance copies ready for the lab.

OK, before I pull a muscle on this metaphor, check out our excerpt and pre-order your copy of the book (for delivery in a bit over two months) right here.
